Are You Prepared for the Shattering Risk of Finding the Divine – in Yourself?

"The reason why...you want to go on seeking, going on this pilgrimage, reading this book and coming to that conference, is because when you start to discover that the Divine is living in you, as you, you are going to be freaked out." - Andrew Harvey at the second Christ Path Seminar

Over the next seven posts, I will introduce selected logions from the Gospel of Thomas, so we can begin to understand their meanings on a deep soul level. You will realize that what’s being given to you in this astonishing Gospel, this amazing divine revelation of the inmost processes of transfiguration, is something that speaks to you in your own deepest journey, from the depths of yourself. This information is given by someone who lives in that depth, because that person has become one with t … [Read more...]

The Gospel of Thomas – A Road Map to Transfiguration

AH3-CP2

I am not writing to you today as someone who wants to present a scholarly picture of some ancient text and its mystical ramifications. I am writing to you as someone who knows that this world is in horrific danger, that we are running out of time and that the only possible way through is with a massive, grassroots revolution of inspired sacred love in action.I am spending my life, giving every ounce of my energy and passion, to going all over the world to say to people, “For God’s sake, wake … [Read more...]

What Are the False Gods of Our World?

Matthew8atCP2

Jesus talks a lot about false gods. He’s talking about idolatry all the time, and about projections and the shadows of avarice and envy, for example, which as I say constitute our economic system in its present state.So again, I ask: How are we doing today with living his message?The names of the false gods of today could all be written in capital letters: for example, Nation with a capital N, or Religion with a capital R. My Religion can beat up on your Religion, my God can beat up on y … [Read more...]

A Radical Vision for a New Generation

"'In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams." - Acts 2:17 paragraphAs ministers and educators, we hear a great deal from parents about the need to pass spiritual values on to our young people. But over the past few years, we've seen the young people of the world taking the lead in teaching Christ-like values of love, compassion, justice and mercy...and most … [Read more...]

Don’t Spend Years Studying Jesus – Put His Teaching into Action!

"Jesus identified himself with that prophetic promise, that he had come to speak to the poor, heal the blind, and so forth – as we all are!" - Matthew Fox brings the message of Jesus home in the second Christ Path Seminar.

So in what way was Jesus a prophet? There are so many ways…but let’s look at just a few. We do know how, very early in Luke’s gospel, in the 4th chapter, he went to the synagogue. And it says in the gospel that he picked up the scriptures and started to read.But Chilton says that Jesus was not literate, that this is Luke, making Jesus look better to the culture, cleaning it up, making him look good to the middle class: he could read, he could do everything the priests could do. And we shoul … [Read more...]

My Personal Encounter with the Christ

andrewtalking8-cropped

So we’ve looked at some personal experiences of walking the Christ Path…but what might it involve for you to step onto this pathI’m not going to unfold it for you now—I’ll do that later. But what I’m going to do is to tell you a story, because if I can communicate this to you, I will have done much, much more work than unfolding the mystical path for you. If you want to read it, I wrote a book, Son of Man, in which everything that I know about the path is there, so you can study it.Bu … [Read more...]

Walking the Christ Path Through Life and Death Experiences

Andrew Harvey shares his personal journey with the Cosmic Christ at the first Christ Path Seminar.

I’ve shared two stories with you on the experience of walking the Christ Path. The third story...a story at the core of my heart... comes from my father.My father was a very beautiful person, very regal and very humble, very strong and very gentle. And he had a very, very profound inner life about which he never spoke, except on his deathbed when I happened, through grace, to be with him. And I asked him, “Who is Jesus for you, as you are dying now?”And his eyes filled with tears and his … [Read more...]

Healing Hands and Mended Ankles – Walking with the Beloved

andrewtalking7-cropped

In my last post, I said very grand things about the transformative power of an intimate relationship with the Beloved. And I want to share three stories with you to demonstrate just how intimate and personal this relationship  is.The first is the story of Kevin, my chiropractor. Kevin is a tremendous buddy of mine, and I love this man because he radiates sweetness and kindness and joy. He is a dyed-in-the-wool fundamentalist so we avoid fundamentalist theology. But we talk, when I’m on his bo … [Read more...]

A Divine Companion on the Lonely Journey of Evolution

andrewtalking8-cropped

Before anything, more than anything, with absolute urgency and sincerity, I want to write in letters of fire upon your heart that we have in Jesus our great evolutionary, revolutionary brother, a living, powerful, unbelievably tender, vulnerable, eternal friend, brother, Beloved.Second, I want to say is that the historical Jesus—and I said this again and again in different ways in my previous posts —the historical Jesus is crucial not just to Christians but to the entire human race, because t … [Read more...]

Walking the Christ Path in Transformation: Fierce Compassion

Matthew Fox opens his arms in prayer at the first Christ Path Seminar

So we’ve looked at the four paths of Creation Spirituality – the awe-inspiring, wonderful cosmic oneness of the Via Positiva; the grief, loss, and letting-go of the Via Negativa; the visionary, creative birthing and problem-solving of the Via Creativa; and the fierce, inspired action of the Via Transformativa. So how do we apply these to our actions in the world?As Rabbi Heschel wrote: “There lies in the recesses of every one of us a prophet”--and of course a mystic. Charles Hocking, early ph … [Read more...]
