ECCE HOMO and THE RISK TO BELIEVE

ECCE HOMO si RISCUL DE A CREDE

(2 Breathings dedicated to DON, the Good and Wise Viking)

Motto:

… it is beyond any doubt that the human begin recognizes its archetypal divinity, only when it is in need for God…”

… este mai presus de orice indoiala faptul ca fiinta umana recunoaste divinitatea sa arhetipala, doar cind are nevoie de Dumnezeu…”

(Theophil Magus)

ECCE HOMO !

God’s biggest problem – probably only in the earthly life – it continues to be His highest and accomplished and most loved of all His creations, the Man.

Why?

For example:

beyond any other reasons and arguments, the simple and the most powerful is the fact that Satan himself indubitably accepts God like absolute Lord not only on Earth but in all infinite Universe.

And he fears Him. And he subdues himself to God even if he strongly fights against Him (there are all the proofs, beginning with the mythological literature and ending with the religious texts, even the most philosophical of them; not forgetting the artistic creations… and, not the least, the scientific ones.)

Even today the Man shortly asks:

if He exists, who is this God?

Yet, the Man, the same one, he does NOT doubt even for a moment about Satan’s existence.

More than that, he deliberately profits from Satan’s existence and, not only once, he does it with intense pleasure and unspoken satisfactions. Yes, no many commentaries on the subject, it is just like that!

Then, you can naturally ask:

who is or what is the Man?

It remains that emblematic whoop : Ecce Homo! (John 19/5) of Pilate, when he showed Lord Jesus Christ to the crowd, having the thorns crown and the purple dress…

Crucify Him! Crucify Him! (John 19/6)

shouted all the present people… along with their priests and servants.

… the babies spread out

yellow leaves under the azure…/

the golden autumn…”

ECCE HOMO !

Cea mai mare problema a Lui Dumnezeu – pesemne doar in aceasta lume paminteana – ramine in continuare cea mai inalta, desavirsita si iubita creatie a Sa, omul.

De ce?

Spre exemplu:

dincolo de orice alte motive si argumente, cel mai simplu si mai puternic motiv/argument este faptul ca Satan insusi indubitabil Il recunoaste pe Dumnezeu ca Domn absolut nu numai pe Pamint, dar si al Universului necuprins.

Si se teme de El. Si se supune Lui Dumnezeu chiar daca lupta din rasputeri impotriva Lui (marturiile dovezile abunda, incepind cu literatura mitologica si sfirsind cu textele religioase, chiar si cele filosofice; nu mai vorbim de creatiile artistice…, dar cu nimic mai prejos, cele stiintifice).

Doar omul se intreaba sec si astazi:

daca este, cine sau ce este Dumnezeu?

Totusi, tot omul nu se indoieste nici o clipa de existenta lui Satan.

Mai mult, beneficiaza premeditat de aceasta existenta si, nu o data, cu intensa placere, cu negraite satisfactii. Da, si fara prea multe comentarii, asa este !

(Banuiesc ca nimeni nu are nevoie de dovezi in acest sens, nu-i asa?)

Atunci, te poti intreba firesc:

cine este sau ce este omul?

Ramine deci, acel emblematic strigat: Ecce homo! (Ioan 19/5) al lui Pilat , cind L-a aratat multimii pe Domnul Iisus Christos avind coroana de spini si haina de purpura…

Rastigneste-L ! Rastigneste-L ! (Ioan 19/6)

au strigat toti oamenii… odata cu preotii si slujitorii lor.

… tzincii rasfira/

galbui frunze sub azur…/

…toamna de aur…”

THE RISK TO BELIEVE

In his philosophical interrogations, Martin Buber (Jew philosopher and theologian/1878-1965), referring to God’s existence, writes that:

if God exists it would be no difference between Faith and the lack of Faith…”

... the Faith risk would not exist ”, concludes the philosopher in his work “Philosophical Interrogations ”.

Therefore, I understand this statement like this:

If God exists – there is no need for Faith.

If God do not exist – again there is no need for Faith.

So: the risk to believe becomes identically with the risk of not believing.

***

Then – what is the risk to believe?

***

The risk to believe is this:

How do you explain God when you discover Him?

Do you crucify again God the Lord Jesus Christ?

Because undoubtedly you will discover Him.

… from the old pine some/

crows are crying endlessly…/

oh, sad October…”

RISCUL DE A CREDE

In interogatiile sale filosofice, Martin Buber ( filosof si teolog evreu/1878-1965), referindu-se la existenta lui Dumnezeu, scrie ca:

daca ar exista Dumnezeu, nu ar mai fi nici o deosebire intre Credinta si necredinta…”

“… riscul Credintei nu ar mai exista “ , conchide filosoful in lucrarea sa “Philosophical Interrogations” .

Deci, eu inteleg astfel:

Daca Dumnezeu exista – nu mai e nevoie de Credinta.

Daca Dumnezeu nu exista – iarasi nu mai e nevoie de Credinta.

Asadar : riscul de a crede devine identic cu riscul de a nu crede.

***

Atunci – care este riscul de a crede?

***

Riscul de a crede este acesta:

Cum il explici pe Dumnezeu cind Il descoperi?
Il rastignesti din nou pe Dumnezeu Iisus Christos?

Fiindca negresit Il vei descoperi.

… din batrinul pin/

ciorile tipa pre-ung…/

octombrie trist…”

Leonard Oprea created the Breathing, an original type of essay in Romanian and world literature.The Breathing is a short, simple yet profound meditation on human condition, a meditation ended by a haiku. But – this haiku does not finish the meditation. In fact, it re-opens this reflection to new questions and responses on human destiny. There are 100 Breathings in Leonard Oprea’s work „Theophil Magus – Confessions 2004 – 2006”, ed. „Universal Dalsi”, 2007, Romania)
