Born Again Mystics


  "Know ye not that ye are the temple of God,
and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?"
1 Cor. 3:16 

   In the mytical pursuit of God, all of the world religions converge to express man's innate divinity or Christ consciousness, and to achieve permanent union with God. The exoteric divisions between Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity, Zoroastrianism, Taoism,Judaism and Islam and Confucianism melt away as the sun of truth arises on the dawn of man's awakening and the spirit flame blazes in the in the heart.

    The mystical paths of all religions teach that God is love and to become God in action, we must become love in action. The main precepts of mysticism are as follows:

• God is spirit, love and light, both male and female, Alpha and Omega. God qualities are mercy, justice, truth, wisdom, purity, joy, faith, good will, beauty, geometry and order, to name a few. whenever we exemplify these qualities, we bring God into manifestation in the world of form. God's spirit is all-pervasive, as proven by quantum physics.

• Man and woman are created in God's image. God's spirit resides in our hearts as a seed presence that has the potential to become the fullness of divinity. As this seed grows and transforms our consciousness into divine consciousness, we achieve new stages of godhood, evolving from children of God to sons and daughters of God, christed ones, buddhas and ultimately gods and goddesses. Because God is in our hearts, we are never separate from him and we are Gods in the making.

• Our souls are separate from the body and live both in and out of the body. The soul can travel to the heaven world (etheric retreats) during sleep and between embodiments. The soul reincarnates into a new body at the conclusion of a lifetime, following this period of training, with further opportunity to experience free will, balance karma and perfect in God.

• Life difficulties come from past misuse of free will and returning karma. Karma explains why some people are born rich, others poor; why some die in infancy and others live to a ripe old age; why some are genuises and others carry infirmities. Karma is the reason we are born to a specific family, culture and geographic area.

• The resurrection is a spiritual process that happens when the soul is ready. Man does not have to pass through death to experience it. The resurrection of the dead means that the dead human consciousness, likened by Jesus to dead men's bones, will be resurrected through the light of Christ illumination.

• The kingdom of God is a consciousness. It is our divine inheritance. Mystics who discover and expand their divine spark and live in the omnipresence of God have found the kingdom. Jesus, in fact, explained that the kingdom of God is neither here nor there but to be found within. Our divine spark may be tiny or invisible, from a physical standpoint, yet it encompasses the fullness of God. Like the parable of the yeast, it has the ability to expand the whole loaf of our consciousness.

• Heaven is union with God and hell is separation. Heaven and hell can be experienced both on earth and between embodiments. Ultimately, manifesting the consciousness of heaven leads to freedom from rebirth and permanent reunion with God in the ritual of the ascension.

• Salvation (soul elevation) comes from doing good works, balancing karma and loving our neighbor. Through this process we put on our Christ consciousness and are "saved through Christ."

  
After those days, saith the Lord, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts;
and will be their God, and they shall be my people.
—Jer. 31:33-34
