Paul Tillich’s (1966) use of Heidegger to shift our understanding of God as a being to Being itself need not leave us with a false dilemma of choosing theism or atheism. These images convey the powers of the universe that appear in nature, for in many forms the ancestor spirits and the Great Spirit lives in all the world (Holitzka, 2000). The fact remains that a small unconscious cause is enough to wreck a man’s fate, to shatter a family, and to continue working down the generations like the curse of the Atrides.

Visions, or apparitions, are epiphanies which are primarily visual, while locutions are the auditory aspect of contact with or from an external transcendent source. Hood, Hill, and Williamson (2005) represent one of the most thorough perspectives from the individual or personality side of fundamentalism. A distinction is often made between those adhering to an understanding of gradual and those adhering to an understanding of instant enlightenment. (Discussion of instant enlightenment derives in part from the Platform Sutra.) The difference at work in this distinction characterizes the path to nirvana as a timely and gradual process, which may be thought to encompass a number of life times, on the one hand.

Ruusbroec describes a movement from union through an intermediary (God’s grace + one’s holy way of life) through union without intermediary (bare and imageless understanding, i.e., the abyss) to union without difference (the dark stillness which always stands empty out of which all things come [tohuvabohu, abaissement de niveau mental (!)], superessential to us and essential to God).

On the contrary, an invitation to live life in its fullness and uniqueness can very well inspire a more vivid respect and sensitivity to creating free, meaningful, and fulfilling lives for each and every person and/or sentient creation.

Its broad scope includes statistics, classics, definitions, articles in journals, and maps.
