Hegel: "Zum Handeln gehört wesentlich Charakter, und ein Mensch von Charakter ist ein anständiger Mensch, der als solcher bestimmte Ziele [...] mit Festigkeit verfolgt". Nach Maximus dient die Bildung dessen, um ein Liebender zu werden, am Ende dann bleibt nur die Liebe als Tat.

erratum, that gratuitous "&" shb "bridge their concepts" I still emulate my masters, i.e. via typos.

I've charitably interpreted Neoplatonic, Thomist, Scotist & Palamite idioms as all, more or less, adequate, using Peirce to bridge & their concepts. They've done the heavy metaphysical lifting, not me. Theologically, you & Amos generously gifted me. Now, Jordan et al. But thanks!

I owe so many apologies of that sort, my post-mortem sanctification will be placed in TBA status, while I'm busy delivering them to those who've already crossed-over. Now is the acceptable time to send flowers. Today is the day of floration.

4 May God bless us with just enough foolishness to believe that we can make a difference in the world, so that we can do what others claim cannot be done: to bring justice and kindness to all our children and all our neighbors who are poor. Amen. ~ Sister Ruth Marlene Fox, OSB

3 May God bless us with tears to shed for those who suffer pain, rejection, hunger, and war, so that we may reach out our hands to comfort them and to turn their pain into joy.

Ramelli is far too overlooked and given far too less credit for her amazing work, especially those who reduce the universalism "debate" into DBH's person shall read her, we are not a persona cult !

It's precisely such ideas as I've gleaned from the two of you that I'm grappling with here:

This has always reminded me of Sri Aurobindo, whose panentheism, sometimes to me, seemed stronger than just a mereological kind (divine fracture), whose no/self was dynamic (karmic bundles) not static, whose account was yogic (beyond discursive, a yogic, unitive praxis), etc etc

The idea 'divine providence' just is the hypostatic union (i.e., Incarnation) is pretty darn revolutionary. All creation embraced in/by the Incarnate One (as risen) means we may misrelate 'within' him (within the possibilities of being), never outside him.

sure sounds like a Neo-Chalcedonian Cosmotheandrism to me?
