Lamp Of The Body Playlist

So I’ve mostly written this book right. Most of the actual writing is done. I’m just redacting it preparing to get it over to an editor. In the meantime, the smart play is to create the buzz myself. I’ve started making YouTube videos out of it and sharing the material without the meditations. This is […]

Western Eyes: Seeking Spirituality With Religious Trauma

Religious trauma may cause some of us to reject dogma and walk away from the institutions we come from but it doesn’t have to. True spirituality is on the rise and we begin to recognize how the divine within is reflected in others.

As I further my personal goals as a content creator I wanted to take a minute and address why i’m doing this. I want to give people a safe place to come to grips with God on their own terms. Click the link for more.

THE DIVINE MYSTERIES OF THOMAS

We talk about secret teachings and hidden wisdom all the time. Allegories and mysteries seem to be at the heart of mystic Christianity. Anyone who has ever read a gnostic text knows exactly how they play up the mystery of the journey within. But… I’d like to demystify inner transformation and invite you to study the opening lines of the Gospel of Thomas with me. Click the link for more.

Buried Treasure Of The Logion

Before I kick off another vlog on how to seek hidden wisdom I feel it’s important to look at the hidden-ness of Thomas. A lot has been written on the secrets of the logion that I feel scares people away from their treasure. Lets take a look at what hidden wisdom is buried in the opening lines of Thomas and see if we can’t find something less enigmatic together. Click the link for more.

DID YESHUA TEACH A SECRET DOCTRINE

“To you it has been granted to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God, but to the rest it is in parables, so that seeing they may not see and hearing they may not understand.” -Luke 8:10 There were obviously hidden threads in the Gospels but I doubt they were nearly as secretive as […]

All 6’s & 7’s: Journey Beyond The Senses

BEHOLD, THE KINGDOM OF G-D IS WITHIN “Go, call your husband, and come here.” The woman answered him, “I have no husband.” Jesus said to her, “You are right in saying, ‘I have no husband’; for you have had five husbands, and the one you now have is not your husband. What you have said […]

Demystifying Thomas 114

This is one of those logia that doesn’t sit right with our modern sensibilities. As is the case with each logion we are to sit with it and meditate until it is revealed to us. The more frustrating a saying of Yeshua may appear the deeper the truth it contains right? I’ve spent months wrestling […]

All 6’s & 7’s: Transforming Water Into Wine

“On the third day there was a wedding in Cana, in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there.” -John 2:1 Jewish mysticism has a practice called gematria- interpreting the meaning of scriptures based on numerical values. It’s a very complex Kabbalistic idea I won’t even attempt to capture here because it’s that deep. However, […]

What The Temptation of Yeshua Teaches

In the post called Symbolism Calls Us Deeper we discussed the esoteric elements behind Yeshua’s conversation with Nicodemus. Today, I’d like to relate that conversation to our own experience and describe how the Temptation in the desert gives us a playbook on how to overcome the triune elements of our being and realize the Kingdom […]
