The Book’s KEY POINTS:
- The mystery of reconciliation with God has to do with understanding identity.
- To experience God, one must concentrate upon His nature. This will depend on the location of one’s awareness at any given moment.
- Personal control of one’s life will be realized through the process of concentrating awareness in alignment with the nervous system.
- Experience can never occur outside the present moment.
- By bringing the senses back to their organ of experience through the body, we must therefore be no thing outside of our awareness through the body.
- Experience is for the observer. The observer cannot itself be observed.
- One’s identity does not belong to the world because you can verify that the world is not you.
- While one can function within and enjoy the forms and conditions of the impermanent world, one ought not abide in them.
- The mind is an instrument used to categorize experience for the observer.
- Behaviors function as a resource through which the observer may navigate and adapt to the conditions of experience.
- Repeat actions of the same kind create an observed behavior and form beliefs.
- All of one’s experiences and beliefs are recorded in the tensions of the body.
- The purpose of emotion is to communicate a course of action for the observer.
- It is when tension is gone that true learning may occur.
- By releasing physical tension, one becomes vulnerable to change.
- The role of submission is to relax our flesh and one’s sense of certainty.
- In a state of total surrender, we experience directly from the nervous system.
- All vice is born out of a separation from God, while all virtue is born from union with Him.
- A regular observance of suffering will become the catalyst for its release.
- The employment of one’s own conscious and unconscious conditions keep grace and mercy from entering one’s experience.
- In submission, what is, is simply allowed to be in all its imperfection, and what results is a flow of experience much more satisfying and harmonious.
- Through the challenges of submission, all illusions of identity are stripped away and one’s authentic nature is remembered.
- Through moderation of one’s breathing, while practicing stillness, the presence of awareness concentrated in the nervous system can be experienced directly in our physiology as a tangible and ecstatic ‘electrical’ or ‘fire-like’ vibratory current or energy whose byproduct is horripilation.
- It is through one’s regular cultivation of energy that the act of redemption is one constantly recurring in a living relationship between you and the divine.
- The more one’s mind and body are trained to an unconditional state through presence and observation, the more readily one may engage the divine.
BACK COVER text:
Christ said, “The Secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you.”
What is this secret?
The early church bishop St. Basil spoke of “the silent and mystical tradition…the unpublic and ineffable teaching,” of the early Christians. Similarly, the apostle Paul spoke of giving the “little ones in Christ, milk to drink, not meat.” This unpublic and ineffable instruction of the early Christians was the “meat” of Christianity, now lost to our modern age. Christianity, subject to persecution in its earliest days and acquiescent in its old age, has left nothing but a mediocre shell of what was truly a core discipline of monumental transformative power. This power, kept secret because of its sanctity, was hidden from the masses and lost but to a select few over the centuries. Christ said, “Many are invited, but few are chosen.” Are you?
In this book, illumination is given to the mysteries of early Christianity, the mystical experiences of the saints and the teachings of Christ. Also evidenced is a novel understanding of the Holy Spirit and its role as the powerful, possessing medium of communication between God and man.
The author notes, “The Holy Spirit is a tangible power experienced in the physiology of our body. It is not an idea, concept or belief, but a genuine transformative agent shaping our nervous system by a force not yet understood by science. It is the power by which we experience God in our body, which then may direct us, comfort us and reconcile us to His nature. In emptying our cup of human nature, we invite in the divine nature to fill us.”
