Grace is the actual and inherent state of the cosmos. The electro-magnetic flux going on around you continuously, and that physically, you in fact are an active, integral and flowing part is bliss awaiting your nascently conscious awareness of it. That integrative awareness is satori, god’s grace descending upon you, entering the kingdom of heaven, etc. etc. Why must we become as little children to enter the kingdom of heaven? Because a child experiences the world directly, not as a word or some other abstraction…exactly as you can…if you look at it directly in space and time where its active and an actual experience instead of a photo or image in your mind which is at least once removed from now.
So the experience of grace, the integration of awareness/consciousness itself and the electro-magnetic flux is the basis, the starting/re-starting…of everything else in one’s life. Grace is where you find love. Love is a unity, a oneness and grace being the active form of love, in other words love in action it is the state from which all of the gifts of love, like gratitude, joy, empathy, congeniality, welcoming, flow, togetherness and ethically determined intention/mutual goals are experienced and expressed.
So with this prefacing sermonette let us ask ourselves why wisdom and paradigm-ology are such penetratingly effective mental tools. It’s mostly because they utilize the mental process of integration which is direct looking, truth, essence and operationally effective factor combining and then mental and temporal aligned action/policy. Wisdom and paradigm-ology are essentially the same tool and process. Epistemological processes for directly perceiving behindness, the realities unconsciously missed by many, not because they are deficiently equipped to do so, but mostly because we are other concerned/distracted. Wisdom is not wisdom unless it has a pragmatic way of acting or not acting attached to it. And this aligns with grace as grace is love in action or as is appropriate, not acting. Paradigm-ology is the study of the phenomenon of paradigms and paradigm changes, but because paradigms and paradigm changes are the most integrative mental and temporal phenomena of human history (i.e. single concepts that effect change in the complexities of entire patterns) they are then logically and definitionally wisdom insights themselves.
Sufficiently practiced these tools and processes lead to the conscious experience of grace, the bliss of continuous integrative nowness….no matter what that nowness may be…and align our thinking and acting-policy choices in our various systems…so as to further pursue a unitary agreement and flow of both, that is a gracefulness of human existence.
