“The death of egoism is to understand that one is an element in a universe that personalizes itself by [God uniting Himself with us and us responding to His call]. So it is no longer oneself that one loves in oneself. ” — Teilhard de Chardin, On Suffering, p. 55 (Harper Collins 1975) (courtesy of Yurii C. Ramos at The Teilhard Project) [editorial modifications in brackets]
About William Ockham
I am a father of two with eclectic interests in theology, philosophy and sports. I chose the pseudonym William Ockham in honor of his contributions to philosophy, specifically Occam's Razor, and its contributions to modern scientific theory.
My blog (www.teilhard.com) explores Ignatian Spirituality and the intersection of faith, science and reason through the life and writings of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (pictured above).

Can you say where that diagram is from (is it a specific article from St. Romain’s web-site)?
The link to the diagram can be found here on Dr. St. Romain’s website (I will provide a link in the post also). If you are interested in the intersection among spirituality and psychology, I would highly recommend Dr. St. Romain’s recent book “God and I: Exploring the Connections Between God, Self and Ego“, which is not only a fantastic read but a very practical spiritual guide.
Thanks for this link William of Ockham, that’s what I was looking for!
