La Mistica Selvaggia (Filosofia) (Italian Edition) by Michel Hulin,A. Bertagni

By Michel Hulin,A. Bertagni

“Non esiste da un lato una piccola mistica, marginale, incompleta, nebulosa, e persino degenerata o patologica, e dall'altro una Grande Mistica, l'unica autenticamente religiosa, l. a. strada maestra che condurrebbe alla conoscenza di Dio (…) los angeles mistica selvaggia comprende, già da sola, tutta l. a. mistica. Fin dal suo iniziale manifestarsi che sconvolge gli schemi percettivi, rimette in questione tutti i nostri postulati sociali, morali o religiosi, e lascia fluire in noi una marea di stati affettivi, il fenomeno mistico si dimostra pura primitività in step with sua stessa essenza. consistent with quanto varie possano essere le modalità che favoriscono l'emergere dell'esperienza mistica (droga, trauma emotivo o pratiche di preghiera e di ascesi), essa fa identicamente naufragare l. a. character sociale, le sue credenze, i suoi ideali e los angeles sua rispettabilità (…) Ma se mai si potesse incontrare un vissuto mistico allo stato puro, è vero che esso sparirebbe dal nostro campo di rappresentazione qualora lo lasciassimo sussistere, unstable com'è, vergine di interpretazione (…) Selvaggia può diventare allora (…) l'interpretazione del fenomeno mistico, non il fenomeno stesso. Il problema posto dalla mistica selvaggia è dunque prima di tutto di ordine culturale e storico. Laddove gruppi sociali omogenei (tradizioni iniziatiche o vere e proprie Chiese) hanno saputo mettere a punto, generazione dopo generazione, tecniche di induzione e codici di deciframento dell'esperienza estatica, il fenomeno ‘mistica selvaggia’ non examine praticamente mai (…) riemerge e torna a estendersi ogni volta che i codici si offuscano e perdono los angeles loro efficacia. (…) Una cosa è lamentarsi dell'attuale dilagare del sentimento oceanico nelle sue forme più fruste e spesso più distruttive, altro è potersi servire di argini e canali capaci di contenerne los angeles futura espansione selvaggia”

By Borriello Luigi

Aprire lo spazio del confronto tra los angeles fedeltà a un carisma istituzionalizzato come quello di Teresa d’Avila e l’interpretazione creativa nell’oggi della storia è un’operazione rischiosa, ma da farsi. Può portare fuori strada, se non avviene sotto l. a. guida fantasiosa dello Spirito according to rispondere alle sfide lanciate dalla società odierna, oltre che dai nuovi orizzonti della teologia e della teologia della vita consacrata. Come figli di Teresa di Gesù abbiamo un’identità e un’appartenenza a un’istituzione che non possiamo svendere né sostituire in line with restare in superficie confusi e smarriti. È alla riscoperta di questa identità e del carisma fondazionale di Teresa di Gesù che intendo dedicarmi in questo lavoro, lasciando intenzionalmente che sia Teresa a raccontare di Teresa. l. a. narrazione che los angeles Santa fa della sua esperienza di vita attinge il proprio soggetto da Dio che le parla e verte sulla sua personale esperienza. Appunto in keeping with questo, il percorso narrativo non procede più dalla Parola di Dio a Teresa, ma da questa a Dio che le parla, spingendola a raccontare le meraviglie che egli ha compiuto nella sua vita (L. Borriello).Prefazione di Anna Maria Cànopi500° Anniversario - Teresa d'Avila 1515-1582
