Awakening the Light Within


The Spiritual Christian
The Teachings of Christ as a Way of Life




To all who cherish goodness, truth, beauty, and light, welcome. This website is dedicated to explaining the teachings of Christ as an internal path of spiritual awakening. The spiritual path explicated by Jesus Christ was referred to as “the Way of Life” and it demonstrates in its symbolism a process of personal transformation that will awaken inspired and dedicated individuals to recognize their true identities, their oneness with the divine, and their unique talents and abilities.

We now have the benefit of 2000 years of knowledge, discovery, and conscious evolutionary progress to use in our explanation and understanding of Christ’s teachings. In these two millennia, we have advanced in individual awareness to the point that we now understand more than ever about consciousness, consciousness structures, internal energies, and transformative practices. This knowledge helps us to fully understand the esoteric teachings represented in the life of Jesus Christ. 

The internal path which Christ refers to is approached through the individual effort of those who strive to think for themselves, to seek until they find, to knock until it opens, and to question until they know. Over the centuries, Christianity has been developed more as a mythical story about the life of Jesus rather than as a body of teachings which were meant to reveal a spiritual way of life. It is very difficult under these limited circumstances to fully understand that Christ’s teachings were meant as a way of life and as a path of spiritual transformation. 

There is a great deal more knowledge and a much broader perspective that is required in order to understand what Jesus Christ meant as the Way of Life as well as what He expects from us today. I believe that now is the time for Christians to take the next step and embrace the Light and teachings of Christ as a way of life and as a path of spiritual awakening. Now is the time to consciously bring the light of Christ into our whole being as an awakening, transformative, and integral experience. This is not a metaphor, but a very real experience.

Jesus Christ said, “Follow me.” This mandate means that we have to “walk the walk.” The walk Christ spoke of is the path of the active seeker. The seeker knocks on the door of understanding until it opens because he/she yearns for knowledge and light. The path which is followed are steps of awakening and internal experiences of purification, transformation, and realization. Although this is a singular path, the experiences are uniquely different for each person who finds the Christ Light within, who is healed, and who learns what it is to be both human and divine.
