One of the most important capacities for those of us who wish to live a truly mystical life is the ability to see. Openness to the other and to the many sensations in our immediate surroundings deepens our ability to access the radiance of Matter’s inner face as well as our capacity to respond to the Divine Presence we encounter within. As we engage passages from Teilhard’s mystical writings, we come to know the Cosmic Christ as the source of all Radiance drawing the human family toward the light and stirring up passionate desire to join in the work of creation.
