Finding things in Common #FridayFeeling #ReligiousPlurality

from Swedenborg.com

Zen meant giving up the love and sense of a separate self and living passionately in the moment so as to leave one open to the influx of wisdom and enlightenment. Zen included the notion of work or service. This was at the very core of the Zen monk’s education known as the “Meditation Hall.”

#GoodFriday #Glorify #Unity

The suffering on the cross completed the process of glorification (meaning the uniting of the Lord’s divine-human nature to the divine nature of the Father). The Lord himself says so in the Gospels:

“After Judas left, Jesus said, ‘Now the Son of Humankind is glorified, and God is glorified in him. If God is glorified in him, God will also glorify him in himself and glorify him immediately’” (John 13:31, 32).

Here glorification refers to both God the Father and the Son; it says

“God is glorified in him and will glorify him in himself.”

Clearly this means that they became united.
