Peak-experiences (reliving one's birth, travelling to the gates of death, biofeedback, dance and even drugs � anything which can provoke an altered state of consciousness) are believed to lead to unity and enlightenment.

Gnosticism never completely abandoned the realm of Christianity. Those polarities can also be described as the paths of light and darkness, good and evil, etc.� Whereas the path of light is committed to truth and love, the path of darkness is committed to deception and fear.� Ra described further dimensions of existence that pursue those paths.� It is a fascinating perspective that this essay cannot do justice to.� It provides a framework to understand interactions between beings on this plane and beings in others, how humans evolve on the physical plane, and the soul's journey.� Others have called the path of serving others the path of service-to-self through service-to-others.� Ra said that the dark path leads to a dead end of sorts.� The study of "that which is not" is valid, and many valuable lessons are learned along the way.� As that path is progressed, higher levels of power and understanding are attained.� Along the li ght path are constantly increasing levels of expansion and integration into creation.� Along the dark path there are constantly increasing levels of concentration and withdrawal into one's perceived self.� Along the light path there is an eventual reunification with the source of creation, the ultimate coming home.� The source of creation is love, and that force created and sustains not only this universe, but also all of creation.� Because lo ve is the power of creation, love is the game that humans are learning, because we are learning to be creators at Earth School. [9] � There are no spiritual lightweights on the planet at this time.� This is an extremely challenging place to be.� As the light path leads to a wondrous reunion with the creator, those at the dark path�s highest level also realize that a reunification with The Source is its next step.� When a highest-level dark path being attempts that reunification, it gets a rude awakening: the dark path does not lead home.� As it is the study of "that which is not," the entire path is ultimately one of illusion and self-deception.� As that highest-level dark path entity "knocks on God's door," God�s greeting is approximately: "I am happy that you are here, but I have news for you.� You are a being of light, not darkness.� You trod your path because I gave you the freedom to choose it.� But it was not real, not in the way you might think.� I am proud of you, my child, but there is an important lesson that your path has not taught you, and the lesson you must learn before you can come home.� You cannot fit in here, as much as I would like you to.� You could not stand it.� I created you and everybody else.� I love you, as I love all my creations.� Your path has led you here, but loving yourself, while an important lesson, is only part of the journey.� The journey is not complete until you love all of creation, as I do.� You have racked up quite a tally.� You incurred many debts to others as you failed to love them, and only loved what you thought of as yourself.� As you failed to love others, you also failed to truly love yourself.� You owe yourself a great debt that you can only pay while serving others.� I have a deal for you.� All the mastery, all the wisdom, all the greatness that you attained on your path, which is indeed impressive, you can exchange for an equivalent status on the path of light.� From that exalted rank of light, you will labor long to settle your debts, make right your wrongs, and bring as much light to creation as you earlier brought darkness.� I think you will find that loving others is highly rewarding, not only to yourself, but also to others.� You have a choice.� You can stay where you are, at the dark path's highest level, where you can progress no further, because there is nowhere else to go.� Or, you can accept my offer, working magnificently with me, engaging in fabulous work on behalf of creation, and when you have balanced your scales, you can come home, and it will be glorious." [10] � The Ra Mat erial is popular and highly regarded.� More obscure are two recent books by Gina Lake, channeled by "extraterrestrials."� Her themes are similar to Ra's.

It's Almost Suppertime - Luke 14:15-24: A feast was made and many were bidden, but when they would not come the servant was sent to the streets, highways and the hedges. For the past couple of years, since leaving my life as an attorney and embarking on what I view as my spiritual path (or whatever ;)), I’ve only been reading non-fiction. This is the fatal flaw in the whole movement. However they do not always undertake the necessary discernment in the light of Christian faith. I think maybe sometimes demonic attack just has to do with persecution of the Christians too.

No matter what is happening to the outward man, my inner self is being progressively renewed day after day. Fowler calls this the intuitive/projective stage of faith. I noticed that when I wasn’t saved I never felt any attacks from demons but ass soon as I gave myself to Christ, it’s when I started to feel the attacks. Our trusting in God and His promise to us is the faith that saves us by God's grace (Eph.2:8-9).

It is the conscious choosing of a direction. One must have these "manifestations of power" in order to truly bring people to Christ? Each type is explained and applied to our experience as believers. As we grow to know God better, we will grow in seeing life from His perspective, and in some areas sin less. The Holy Spirit is the source of our deepest satisfaction.
