Re: Doka and thoughts on Love

Hello Allen,

The books fit in with the title of the thread. Nygren wrote a massive text on Eros and Agape and de Rougement wrote a book called Love in the West (I think). When I was an SJ, I worked through a work by one of my senior colleagues, a book called The Mind and Heart of Love, by Martin C D'Arcy.

Best wishes,

Good Afternoon Peter,

Just to put my original post into context, I had just read the Frederick Buechner "meditation" for the day (September 10th) as I have for several months now. It brought to mind the Doka I referred to in my original post. Serendipitously it being the eve before the 10th anniversary of "9/11," the convergence of thought streams seemed somehow "relevant" and I thought others might also enjoy contemplating both the Doka and the Buechner quote. That was my motivation for posting, nothing more.

Will you be soon further elucidating your views on O-sensei and Omoto? You've spoiled me you know.

Kind regards,

~ Allen Beebe
