We can manifest the evolutionary mysticism Teilhard taught and forecast. We can learn to apply his ideas and visions to our daily life and to our social awareness. This is conscious evolution, a presence in the world as members of Christ’s body. Indeed, we are alive today to co-create, through Him, with Him, in Him, and as Him the future he came to proclaim.

Evolution for Teilhard is a continuous move toward the fullness of the risen Christ, the cosmic human, the divine-human, a universal consciousness drawing all to universal convergence and connectedness. Teilhard shows us a path to such a glorious transformation. His earth mysticism shows him a vision of the cosmos as full of divine life. This is Christ, incarnate in matter, calling us to union with him through matter.

A meditative focus on Teilhard’s words helps open us to the mysterious forces in the universe that continually reveal God’s face. Our calling is to join into the momentum of our evolving universe so we can present that face to the world. We do this in all we are and find it everywhere we are. We also delightedly find out who we are because a calling always shows us our surprising potential.
