Mysticism; Gnosticism the spiritual
path of experiencing God directly within one's own self.
The Mystic Christ reveals the life and teachings of Jesus
to be an ancient tale of mystic union, salvation, and enlightenment. It
is the careful uncovering of a lost treasure of immeasurable value,
long buried in the suffocating darkness of conventional orthodoxy on one
side, and blind fundamentalist extremism on the other. From
the viewpoint of the world’s mystical religious traditions, the
brilliant light of Jesus’ way is revealed as a penetrating radical
non-duality unifying all people and all of life. The
Master’s path to this all-embracing unity is the spiritual practice of
pure selfless love. Love God intensely, love our neighbor as our own

The Mystic Christ is thoroughly punctuated with quotes from masters of the mystical traditions such as Buddha,
, and Lao Tzu as well as the
Gnostic gospels. But, most importantly, over 230 scriptural references
from the Old and New Testament are used to illustrate the harmony that
exists between the life and teachings of Jesus and the world’s great

artfully peels away centuries of abuse by the my-way-or-the-highway
pirates of religion. He gives Jesus back to the hearts and souls of a
humanity that yearns for the love of the Divine. He reveals a Jesus that
is positively enchanting for practitioners of any spiritual discipline.
The Mystic Christ is at once profoundly fascinating, deeply historic and electric with the vibration of the mystical experience.
