Incurvatus in se "Latin: Incurvatus in se" (Turned/curved inward on oneself) is a theological phrase describing a life lived "inward" for self rather than "outward" for God and others. Paul the Apostle wrote of this condition in the Epistle to the Romans 7:15, 7:8-19: For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I. [...] For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. It was perhaps Augustine of Hippo who first coined the phrase incurvatus in se. Martin Luther expounded on this in his Lectures on Romans and described this state as: See also References External links The Catholic Luther, an article quoting Luther's use of incurvatus in se.

Tomgram: Rebecca Solnit, The Future Needs Us — from TomDispatch 'Tis the season of tradition and, as it turns out, TomDispatch has one seasonal tradition of its own. For the last nine -- count 'em: nine! -- years, Rebecca Solnit has stepped into the breach (“dear friends!”) and ended the TomDispatch year for us with her usual panache. As for myself, on this disaster planet in 2013, let me admit to finding hope in a single young man, Edward Snowden, who in his act of disobedience, which was civil but for many here in the U.S. hard to swallow, he truly awoke a world to the dystopian possibilities lurking in the global security state that Washington has been building. — Tom The Arc of Justice and the Long Run: Hope, History, and Unpredictability by Rebecca Solnit North American cicada nymphs live underground for 17 years before they emerge as adults.

Be a Scrooge This Year: Reflections from A Christmas Carol The name of Ebenezer Scrooge has become synonymous with miserliness, greed, grumpiness…all those things you don’t want to be. It’s really too bad, and Scrooge gets an unfair treatment in my opinion, because at the end of A Christmas Carol, he’s changed his ways and become a whole new man. The story should be remembered more for that — for the hope that a man can mend his ways and change his spirit — than for the coldness old Scrooge displays at the outset. Author Charles Dickens wrote in a preface to the short novel that his intent in writing was “to awaken some loving and forbearing thoughts.” After going through the text for the AoM Book Club, the following questions sort of naturally arose as I was thinking about it. Hopefully we can use these as a reflection for the Christmas season to be able to awaken some of those loving thoughts that Dickens was eager to find. Do you carry a “low temperature” about you? Can you relate? What have you lost in the pursuit of Gain? Feeling tense?
Ways of Keeping a Prayer Journal :: Deeper Devotion Question “Can you suggest ways of keeping a prayer journal?” —Harry Answer First of all, I have to say I think keeping a prayer journal is a great way to spend time with God. Let me give you my simple method for prayer journaling and then I’ll talk about other ideas you might try. That’s just my method. Media If you like to write by hand, then a notebook may be great for you. If you’d rather type, try keeping a journal in Microsoft Word or just a text editor like Notepad. If you want to go a step further, you could also try keeping your prayer journal online. Methods When you are praying for specific people, try getting a photo of each and putting them in your journal. Prayer is intended to be a conversation. I find that God often teaches me through a “theme of the day” or “theme of the month.” If you find that you are seeing signs of a sin buildup in your life that hasn’t been confessed, spend time just dumping out all those things.

Virtual afterlives will transform humanity – Michael Graziano In the late 1700s, machinists started making music boxes: intricate little mechanisms that could play harmonies and melodies by themselves. Some incorporated bells, drums, organs, even violins, all coordinated by a rotating cylinder. The more ambitious examples were Lilliputian orchestras, such as the Panharmonicon, invented in Vienna in 1805, or the mass-produced Orchestrion that came along in Dresden in 1851. But the technology had limitations. To make a convincing violin sound, one had to create a little simulacrum of a violin — quite an engineering feat. Then, in 1877, the American inventor Thomas Edison introduced the first phonograph, and the history of recorded music changed. Imagine a future in which your mind never dies. That second version of you could live in a simulated world and hardly know the difference. It is tempting to ignore these ideas as just another science-fiction trope, a nerd fantasy. If did you want to capture the music of the mind, where should you start?
How Should We Live: History’s Forgotten Wisdom on Love, Time, Family, Empathy, and Other Aspects of the Art of Living by Maria Popova “How to pursue the art of living has become the great quandary of our age… The future of the art of living can be found by gazing into the past.” “He who cannot draw on three thousand years is living from hand to mouth,” Goethe famously proclaimed. Thomas Hobbes extolled “the principal and proper work of history being to instruct, and enable men by the knowledge of actions past to bear themselves prudently in the present and providently in the future.” He writes in the introduction: How to pursue the art of living has become the great quandary of our age.[…]I believe that the future of the art of living can be found by gazing into the past. Rather than approaching that wonderbox as an instructional manual, however, Krznaric looks at history as a choose-your-own-adventure compendium of do’s as well as don’ts. We need to trace the historical origins of these legacies which have quietly crept into our lives and surreptitiously shaped our worldviews. George Orwell
