Welcome to day 3 of the challenge!
Today’s challenge is on Spiritual Liberation by Michael Bernard Beckwith.
For those not familiar with Michael, he is the founder of the Agape Spiritual Center, where his talks have been described as “electrifying,” and he also was one of the featured teachers in The Secret.
“My central message is not about religiosity or churchianity. It is about aspiring toward spiritual liberation, which I define as becoming free from the narrow confines of fear, doubt, worry, and lack, and living instead from a conscious awareness of one’s Authentic Self, one’s true nature of wholeness.
Spiritual liberation results from discovering and expressing the intrinsic qualities of enlightened consciousness that have been ours since the moment we came into existence. Simply put, all that is required to live up to our highest potential is already inside us awaiting our conscious activation. Living up to our potential is about becoming more ourselves, more of who and what we are as awakened beings, a central theme you will encounter throughout this book.” – Michael Bernard Beckwith from Spiritual Liberation.
And a few words from Brian on Michael: “Reverend Michael Bernard Beckwith is easily one of the most electrifying and energetic people I’ve ever seen. He lights up the church he founded over 20 years ago (the Agape Spiritual Center) every Wednesday and Sunday and if you find yourself in Los Angeles I highly recommend you check him out!”
It’s simply impossible to capture his energy in a book, but Spiritual Liberation is packed with a bunch of big ideas we’re excited to explore. So, let’s get on it! (But if you want to get a copy of the book, you can grab it here.)
