Banyen's Description: 

Beckwith is a dynamic spiritual leader who touched millions of viewers in The Secret. Here he’s written his spiritual message, along with his approach to embodying that message in daily life: a process he calls “aspiring toward spiritual liberation.”

In Spiritual Liberation, his first book, Beckwith addresses some fundamental questions about the process of waking up. Through personal and moving accounts, he teaches that inner spiritual work, not religiosity or dogma, liberates us. He draws on a wide spectrum of ancient wisdom teachers such as Jesus the Christ and Gautama the Buddha; contemporary spiritual luminaries Thich Nhat Hanh, Sri Aurobindo, and the Dalai Lama; and Western contributors to the New Thought tradition of spirituality such as Emanuel Swedenborg and Walter Russell, to create a profound new synthesis.

Evolved people understand that there’s a celebration going on throughout this great Universe and that a cosmic celebration can be localized within you when you realize that life is not a problem to be solved but a magnificent mystery to be lived.

Read silently or aloud, passages from Spiritual Liberation can be included during meditation or prayer. Each chapter includes an affirmation that distills its core concepts into a sentence or two for the reader to easily practice throughout the day. Also included are Embodiments—deep meditations designed to anchor awareness in everyday life.

Beckwith combines spiritual, educational, scientific, governmental, economic, and social elements. Topics such as “Evolved People,” “Transcending the Tyranny of Trends,” and “Inner Ecology” bring together insights from a range of spiritual paths to form a coherent practice that is neither Eastern nor Western but truly global.

“Activism and mysticism are called upon in Michael’s writings to show us how we can meld into a Beloved Community and therefore become one.” —Ram Dass, author of Be Here Now

 

Publisher’s Description: 

Michael Bernard Beckwith -- the dynamic spiritual leader who touched millions of readers and viewers in The Secret and through the spiritual community he founded, the Agape International Spiritual Center -- is now sharing his transforming central message and his powerfully accessible means for embodying that message in daily life, a process he calls "aspiring toward spiritual liberation."

Michael Beckwith teaches that inner spiritual work, not religiosity or dogma, liberates us. He draws on a wide spectrum of ancient wisdom teachers such as Jesus the Christ and Gautama the Buddha; contemporary spiritual luminaries Thich Nhat Hanh, Sri Aurobindo, and the Dalai Lama; and Western contributors to the New Thought tradition of spirituality such as Emanuel Swedenborg, Walter Russell, and Dr. Howard Thurman to create a profound new belief synthesis.

Either read silently or aloud, Spiritual Liberation can be included during meditation or prayer. Each chapter includes an affirmation that distills its core concepts into a sentence or two for the reader to easily practice throughout the day. Beckwith's personal and touching accounts guide the practitioner to integrate and activate the intrinsic gifts of divinity into everyday life.

The core concepts of Beckwith's teachings are cohesively conceived and convincingly stated in the provocative chapters of Spiritual Liberation. Topics covering "Evolved People," "Transportation to Trans-formation," "Transcending the Tyranny of Trends," and "Inner Ecology" are some of his foundational teachings that bring together insights from a range of spiritual paths to form a coherent practice that is neither Eastern nor Western but truly spiritually global.

Regardless of their belief system, readers will find it impossible to finish this book without at least a few "Aha!" moments.
Roughly 20 million people in the U.S. identify themselves as spiritual rather than religious. Spiritual Liberation draws on a wide spectrum of ancient wisdom to create a profound new belief synthesis that is neither Eastern nor Western, but truly global. Beckwith's touching personal accounts guide practitioners to integrate and activate the intrinsic gifts of divinity into their everyday lives.
