Tropism towards Agape
The human reality, the authentic one, is elsewhere, further, deeper than the easy surface in which we are unceasingly likely to confine it. The order of the 'same' does not exhaust, and by far, the totality. The human realm is open on an order which is not that of the daily obviousnesses which reign in surface. There, the euphorias go to the maximum of being, of having and of appearing. In deepness, on the other hand, opens an infinite order of gaping. Here 'other' values have course. Not-being, not having, not-appearing. This order of gaping is not immediately accessible. To be somewhat at home with it you need something like a preliminary 'conversion'. Then, behind an 'infinite vacuum', you apprehend, in hollowness, quasi negatively, an infinite plenitude.
A deep tropism, something like a secret divine instinct towards its essential dimension, calls the human reality towards the Other one.
Man exists authentically only in the precipice of his vertical gaping… Called by an abyss of plenitude. There cannot be true humanity without this call. Even if nobody wanted to listen to it, even if nobody wanted to hear it, it would not be less the fundamental and constitutive provocation of the human being. Man, simply, unconsciously or consciously, would constitute himself in negative inversion against it. Nobody could know which animal man would be without it. With it is also given the possibility of not listening to it.
Do we find our plenitude while bringing it back into the immanence? Or do we find it while letting us provoke by the disproportion of the Other one?
It is a question of simple humanity. From the start on the spiritual 'vocation' is not a question of chapel nor of sacristy. The deep call of each man is of total humanity, of humanity from before the great schizoid divide, of divine humanity. As created, from the beginning, at the image and the resemblance of God. The spiritual adventure is not for bringing a supplement or an improvement. It has from the start on ontological significance. It is to constitute the human condition in its authenticity. By discovering the truth of God, it makes up the truth of man.
Let you choir in the vertical gaping totality. Such a fall goes through deepest bottomless interiority. There the spirit is loosing itself to some extent. Beyond its powers, beyond its thought, beyond its very possibility for distinction, it coincides with the pure light. It makes the experiience of 'illumination'. Thus takes place a kind of interior birth.
Mystical gaping opens in the crack of being. The clean mystical way is negative. Against our instincts and to our logic it is a question of making up emptiness for reaching plenitude. Ascetic life. Purification. Detachment. Silence. Gaping. Nothingness.
This call takes the voice of man. It takes the voice of God. In the Incarnation of the Verb. It is a cry in us of the Spirit which shouts “Abba!” and attests that, far from being orphan, we are of divine race and of trinitarian family. The proportion of man is thus not the man but disproportion. We are created for inordinately large desings.
