We shall all come to know a ‘dark night’ of our souls. The path to esoterica illumination originates by the divine will of God as well as cooperation of the soul. Is there an Omega Point of God and human soul we may call thin places, and is this what Pierre Teilhard de Chardin was aspiring to illuminate? My positioning in direct relationship to this argument originates to when I was a young teen in the late sixties madly in love with Jesus Christ and His Blessed Mother. It was during this era I began to witness signs. The signs are not to be dwelt upon but a clear remembrance as to how one gets from point A to point B, and exclusively to the Omega Point, or theoretically these ‘thin places’ within the paradoxical dimension we live in. This thesis will demonstrate in lieu of experience imperatives to spiritual bliss, thin places, or the Omega Point relationally to our own lives. We are not required to live saintly lives to testify to the authenticity of witness to the phenomenon of a spiritual ecstasy. I believe it is possible to commune with God (on God’s own timing), through ignorance as opposed to a saintly life, but both are possible. This is what I purposefully intend to write about and to prove. God has created humanity to fellowship and commune with Himself. This is paradoxically a way of life for many people in Tibetan Buddhist communities, Christian monasteries, Sufism communities (especially among many women Sufis), Kabbalah and the Jewish communities, Native America Spirituality (Human Beings), and Hindu mystical communities, whereby all are called mystics.
There is a place I go inside my heart I call the ‘gateway’. The gateway is where thin places of heart and soul fuse and I believe is the Omega Point Jesuit Priest Pierre Teilhard de Chardin was in search of during his life within the cosmos and the geographical earth; thin places, where heaven and earth merge. These thin places are of heart and soul where the God of the Most – High communes with his children, earthly inhabitants who love Him through a reciprocal love of divinity and cooperation with His divine plan of salvation, and love for all mankind.
This incarnational love amalgamates with the Resurrected Christ within the heart and soul for two who are joined in body and heart, the soul delivers us from our unattended egos to a heartfelt, purely, divine, spiritual ecstasy known only by few. This is where heaven and earth shall meet; almost where the word incantation, a Latin word meaning “to consecrate with charms or spells,” (Hirsch, 2014, p. 303), only, I have been in a holy trance from the Omnipresent of God’s Divine will, where, one may conceivably feel it to be a spell. I am not qualified to say yes or no, but a narrator of my own life. Upon, the lifting of the mists of my own ego shall I come to realize the imperative for love, but, enter reverently and mystically into love.
I have discovered the mists from our own mind’s camouflages our truths. These esoteric gateways have become lost by the arrogant thoughts of men, and I do reiterate men because women rarely are concerned with the cloudiness of chauvinistic thought. Women, as our Blessed Mother Mary through her incarnational experience with the Holy Spirit demonstrated that by: (Donal H. Calloway, 2005, p. 65),
“being taken into the mystery of the incarnation she witnesses to the concreteness of Christ’s incarnation against rationalistic and ideological tendencies.” [i]
John Paul II asked women within the global society to “reconcile people with life.” To John Paul II women and “motherhood involves a special communion with the mystery of life, as it develops in the woman’s womb. The mother is filled with wonder at this mystery of life and ‘understands’ with unique intuition what is happening inside her. In the ‘light of the beginning’ the mother accepts and loves as a person the child she is carrying in the womb. This new contact with the new human being developing within her gives rise to an attitude towards human beings not only towards her own child but every human being, which profoundly marks the woman’s personality.” [ii]
For man, he should be aware the womb to be sacred as well as the gateway, thus, enter quietly, reverently, and mystically, and you shall rise to meet God’s glory and your bliss.
