Identity in the view of a mystic

22 Jan
Chiara Lubich, born in Italy on January 22, 1920, would be 100 years old today, among many teachings I found in her philosophy, 
this one is still little known and seems appropriate to the moment of humanity, because it speaks of 
identity, and begins by commenting on Hegel, this writing it was almost burned were it not for a 
person who hid it in a safe.

egel: non é vero che l´essere che existe é statico, ma dinamico. Tra l´essere e il il non essere, viene fuori il divenire. Tesi, antitesi, sintesi. Il nulla serve, perché se non serebbe l divenire. Il nulla adquista um valoe filosófico, um ruolo particolare. Aplicando uma “concezione trinitária” (cóse disse lui), c´é l´essere, il non essere ed il divenire. Il divenire non é qualcose imperfetta, ma la sintesi ta l´essere ed il non essere. Non si puó sostenere completamente il princípio di identitá perché essere e non essere non si appongono assolutament, perché trovano la síntese nel divenire.

It is not true that the being that exists is static, but dynamic. Between being and non-being, becoming arises. 
Thesis, antithesis, synthesis. None of this is necessary, because it would not be possible to do so. None of this has a 
philosophical value, a particular role. 
When applying a "Trinitarian conception" (as he said), there is being, not being and becoming. 
Becoming (becoming) is not imperfect, but the synthesis of being and non-being. 
The principle of identity cannot be fully supported, because being and non-being are not at all opposed (they cannot be fixed), 
because they find meaning in the synthesis in becoming.
This not only overturns the theses that seek fixed identities and call them liquid or corrupt identities that admit a non-being of dialogue, in fact they are the inspiring source for a more integrated world.
