Mystical Death – The Ultimate Intimacy One thought on “Mystical Death – The Ultimate Intimacy” Amanda Storywarrior says: February 24, 2019 at 6:53 pm If you feel like the messages you encounter in the curriculum modules of Interior Mythos Journeys are a little â€œoffâ€ from the heavy influx of feel-good and its-all-about-YOU-fulfilling-your-SELF teachers, you are correct. These plentiful teachers sometimes help us temporarily rearrange our most potent neuroses or favorite or distasteful feelings. But these waves on the egoic surface remainâ€¦.on the surface! The material of Interior Mythos Journeys is not intended to nurture our favorite illusions or comfortable feelings but to provide an encounter with That-Which-Is-Ultimately-and-Forever-REAL. It is only this encounter that has the possibility of radically and deeply transforming our lives. A less popular teacher, SÃ¸ren Kierkegaard, taught it is only â€œin the anxiety of the anguished conscienceâ€ of how messed up we are, that we might, â€œsubmit to this radical cure; â€¦the most fearful operation of all, of all. Just as unlikely as it is for a person who merely feels a little indisposed to think of submitting to the most painful operationâ€”if, note well, s/he then knows what,â€ [living authentically in Reality] â€œis and has not been talked into some nonsense about [Truthâ€™s] gentle, life-beautifying, and ennobling ground of comfort.â€ [CMT â€“ Contemporary Mythos Translation] [Kierkegaard, Soren, Journals and Papers, Volume I, ed. and trans. Hong, Howard V. and Hong, Edna H., Bloomington, Indiana. Indiana University Press: 1967, #496, p 198.] Fr. Richard Fragomeni, Ph.D. helps us grasp this transformative encounter in â€œMystical Death â€“ Ultimate Reality.â€ Interior Mythos Journeys attempts to deliver to you voices of those teachers who are unwilling to compromise Truth and yet dwell among us. For me, Fr. Fragomeni is such a teacher. GO Deepâ€¦â€¦. Reply You must sign up or log in to comment.
