A revolution in the spirituality of Earth

I took several interesting classes from some Yale professor, on Herman Hesse, Jung, and J.R.R. Tolkien, and how their ideas relate to early Christian Gnosticism…. My dad said it was like GRAD school type stuff… but on all points of theology I was constantly explaining simple (Lightning Path) concepts to the teachers, etc. and it was kind of embarrassing because their thinking was confused and not really too sophisticated at all by LP terms.” — Benjamin Pritchard

Welcome to the Lightning Path…

The Lightning Path is a powerful, effective, grounded, logical, intuitive, modern, and authentic path of spirituality. The Lightning Path is designed to provide a fast path (like the path of a lightning bolt) towards what I call reconnection but what others have called enlightenment, moksha, gnosis,[1] liberation from Maya, emancipation from mental slavery,[2] the descent of Christ consciousness, Sam̄adhi,[3] Sat-Chit-Ananda, Fana,[4] Satori,[5] the Clear Light,[6]  being “born again,” being “clear,” and so on.  Put another way, the Lightning Path is designed to get you Connected with Consciousness, to put you in touch with the inner core of your divinity, and to get you experiencing the high spiritual truths of creation for yourself.

To get started, browse the Fast Path page. Start from the top and read your way down one book at a time. If you got questions or want to connect, visit our forums.

To read the nice things people say, visit the student/reader feedback page.

And if you are a little freaked out by what’s happening in the world, don’t worry. The “stars” are falling and the old world is stalling, but you are finally and firmly facing in the right direction. What happens next is entirely up to you.

[1]Rev. W. R. Inge, Mysticism in Religion (New York: Hutchinson’s University Library, 2005) 9. Gnosis is “not merely hearsay and dependence” on the teachings of others. Gnosis is that “which envisages the unseen for itself. For it does not believe on a person, it believes in and into him.” In other words, gnosis is direct mystical experience that you yourself have.
