THE GUARDIAN, APRIL 16, 1982 PAGE 5 eaching for Whole HNOW YOUR FAITH Sponsored By Arkansas State Council Knights of Columbus By Dolores Leckey uncover for me new insights to the meaning in the words of AN unusual but brilliant Jesus. "Zen and the Bible," In one place, Father Jesuit Father J.K. Kadowaki speaks of con- examines the templation and union with Gospel through the God. This can occur, he of Zen meditation believes, through the act of loving another human thinking has helped thoroughly: with one's whole body and soul, with one's whole mind and emotions. need both, Allstate i)lsura II('e mortgage protection insura nee. in good hands.

LITrLE ROCK 374-0312 IF WE love in this way, writes Father Kadowaki, we should learn to see both God and the rest of human life in the one upon whom we con- centrate the force of our energy. That reminds me of Jesus' urging us to love God with all our mind, all our strength (bodiliness), all our soul -- and to love our neighbor as our- self. The startling thing about Jesus' teaching is that it's not merely words. We can look at his public ministry - the gospel accounts -- and see how he lived, how he loved, fully engaged with other persons. He brought the fullness of his personhood to his many acts of love. THE LIFE of the mind, for example, was not dismissed by Jesus. Quite the opposite. He begins intellectual en- deavors at an early age, arguing with the rabbis in the temple. The body was not denied by Jesus. The ordinary in- teractions of eating and drinking, and of con- versations with all kinds of people, mark the pages of the Gospel. Furthermore, his healings involved his own body: Jesus touches the sick in vivid ways. Remember the mudpack made from his own spittle which he applied to the eyes of the blind man? His last evening on earth was focused on the perpetuation of his bodily presence in sacred bread and wine. And finally, his dead body was anointed with spices, as well as much sorrow. -Vacuum-Fan Ctr.

He recommended setting time aside for prayer and meditation; reading something intellectually or aesthetically stimulating; exercising and eating properly; doing something just for fun. ( NC Photos) JESUS DEALT with emotions, too. He experienced anger, we read. And he cried. He wept when his friend Lazarus died and when he thought of the fate of Jerusalem. I suspect he also wept when he saw the poor widow put all she had into the temple treasury. Jesus had a way of probing into the emotional recesses and defenses of the men and women who followed him and who sought his help. Again and again, he asked those who would be cured or freed: What do you want? IN THIS way, Jesus insisted that people get in touch with the centers of themselves -- with their freedom, choice and responsibility. In Jesus' time, as in our time, this is a pathway to emotional health. Throughout his public ministry, Jesus was alert to the world of the spirit. He battles principalities and powers at the same time that he encourages people to look within their own hearts and there to glimpse the spirit of the living God. The approach Jesus takes is OCcupation. We will be taking calls for enrollment starting 12:00  a whole approach. He is open noon until 3:00 p.m. every day except Weekends. ; and fully present.

TO CONTROL our weight through the proper use of food and alcohol. Many people I know have variations on the Menninger theme. Some have adopted a special diet. Others do yoga before meditating. One friend takes a study day once a month. Still others, convinced that a whole life requires some artistic expression, have begun to sing or dance, to paint or do pottery, to weave or sculpt. IN SO doing, these people have come to agree with Father Kadowaki that Jesus meant us to throw our full energy into the affairs of life-- like St. Irenaeus in the second century, who cried that "The glory of God is the human person fully alive." The journey of faith is a journey toward becoming a whole person. 1982 NC News Service Above Monument Gray Granite on 4It.
