To overcome divine self-estrangement and the estrangement of the world from God, individual self-consciousness or spirit must become aware of its status as the manifestation of God’s Spirit. Spirit’s self-consciousness, displayed in human life, unites Father and Son (God and creation) and the whole human community together in mutual love. The climax and telos of history (the Absolute) occurs when Spirit becomes fully manifest in creation and global unity and harmony encompass God, nature, and humanity.
