Who We Really Are

In celebration of this Friday, I want to share with you a very special gift taken from my new book, The Hidden Teachings of Christian Mysticism Vol. 1.

As human beings, we are accustomed to thinking of ourselves as separate, especially in terms of our own physical bodies and personalities. Yet the little bundles of self-definitions that form our personalities are energetically sustained and internally supported by old stories, old thoughts, and old beliefs.

 What we think of as being our own personal analytical minds, is actually created by continually reinforcing such habitual patterns of thinking.

However as Christians, the deepest comprehensive understanding of our awakened mind is actually based on the discovery that we are eternal souls spiritually connected to the divine radiant light of our Creator. Once awakened to this fact, we realize that all of us are extended energetic sparks and radiant reflections of God’s divine mind, complete with profound illuminating power.

Before an individual is spiritually awakened to this fact, their thoughts and actions are centered on their own survival-based patterns.

Which most often are borrowed from other people such as our parents, siblings, and friends, and used to create their own personal value system, opinions, personality traits, and reactive mannerisms.

This is why our ego must first be stripped of its acquired individuality before we can spiritually grow.

The old bundles of self-definitions that have maintained our separate identities must be stripped away so we can realize that each one of us is in fact a part of the infinite light of God’s radiant being.

No one manifests their full true spiritual nature until they have ridden themselves of the limitations of their acquired ego.  

This process of “born again” thinking is developed by constantly revising one’s personal self-definitions, which allows the divine light of God to clearly shine forth in their lives.

Walking A Spiritual Path

In celebration of this Friday, I want to share with you a very special gift taken from my new book, The Hidden Teachings of Christian Mysticism Vol. 1. 

We are often told that “man is spirit,” and that he contains the divine spark of God’s own illuminating fire.

Because of this most radiant gift, man’s soul is considered to be immortal, and has the capacity to spiritually grow, mature, and radiate divine light without limit.

Which is why whether or not an individual’s spiritual discipline has been deeply rooted in a particular religious teaching, if they sincerely seek to know God with their whole heart, they will eventually discover the divine mysteries that are hidden inside a true spiritual walk.  

This road less traveled will eventually lead the seeker down a winding path towards becoming a more spiritually evolved child of light.

When we live our lives as children of God, as we stand on our own particular rung on the ladder of life, we can often see other rungs that are currently located both above and below us.

 Those who stand on the rungs located high above us may even appear to be as gods, especially in their incredible spiritual knowledge, ability, and power. Yet these older brothers and sisters reveal to us that not long ago they also stood exactly where we are currently standing.

If we desire to be like them in the future, we must also share the same steps as they had trod upon in the past.

Esoteric Spirituality In Christianity

In celebration of this Friday, I want to share with you a very special gift taken from my new book, The Hidden Teachings of Christian Mysticism Vol. 1.

Because of a serious lack of understanding in what metaphysical training is all about, and how it applies to spirituality, many Christian religions simply refuse to take a closer look into anything that might be labeled “esoteric spirituality.” 

Yet historically, many of these unorthodox methods of prayer and meditation were often effectively used in earlier times to help many Christian monks and nuns progress towards a stronger and more profound spiritual relationship with God.

Without this much needed understanding and support, many people of faith often become confused as to what to do when their personal spiritual gifts begin to manifest.

Some Christians actually become extremely frightened of these supernatural abilities, even though these advanced mystical states were at one time considered to be a natural part of their spiritual growth and development.

Oftentimes these awakening experiences are ignored within the church, other times the natural spiritual gifts are even thought of as being “evil.”

This attitude is seen so often in the church, that much of today’s drop in attendance and the restless spiritual searching of the youth seems to be inspired by the belief that Christianity has nothing to offer someone who is truly seeking deeper spiritual growth.  

This assumption is often followed by the belief that the church today has become nothing more than a collection of antiquated dogmas based on political hierarchies and the desire for control.

Yet, it is a mistake to think that Christianity has no inner teachings.  

Many of the supernatural abilities that lie dormant within most believers were at one time considered to be an essential part of the Christian faith, responsible for manifesting the eternal soul’s divine potential in the world. 

In fact, in ancient times the ultimate goal of Christian mysticism was to energetically awaken and inspire an individual’s heart and mind towards a deeper experience of spiritual consciousness, and to draw him or her closer towards an enlightened understanding of God’s most radiant love and divine truth.

It is from this divine truth that the energetic manifestations of the spirit world are suddenly brought into conscious awareness.

Spiritual Transformation

In celebration of this Friday, I want to share with you a very special gift taken from my new book, The Hidden Teachings of Christian Mysticism Vol. 1.

The term “Spiritual Transformation” is defined as the progressive alteration and change of a person’s current thoughts, beliefs, and feelings surrounding their life, to a higher more spiritually elevated relationship with a divine power. This type of spiritual awakening is often rooted in a special awareness associated with one’s eternal soul and its innate relationship with God.

 Although many people say “the path to the eternal soul lies within,” the simple truth of the matter is that this special road to spiritual awakening is only uncovered through dedication and personal exploration.

Many times this important life transforming adventure requires an individual to receive specific teaching designed to move them from one particular state of mind towards the internal embodiment of this spiritual knowledge.

Often this esoteric wisdom is considered to be far beyond the understanding associated with normal spiritual teachings, religious dogma, or esoteric mythology.

The road to discovering the particular tools needed to awaken someone so that they can experience a deeper spiritual transformation will often vary from person to person.

However, these unique teachings can many times set into motion a powerful spiritual awakening, one that is brought about through exposure to different philosophies, trainings, and meditation practices – all of which center on consciously changing a person’s present state of heart and mind, and directing them towards a closer relationship with God.
