Utopia Now

 

 

 

The Lightning Path is all about personal and global transformation. We don’t want to wait another hundred years and we don’t want to see it only when we die and go to heaven. We want it in the right here and the right now. But personal and global transformation aren’t easy. In order to get from here to there, there’s a lot of confusion we have to clear up, a lot of new things we have to learn, and a lot of work we have to do.

The Lightning Path helps move you and humanity forward by providing a framework that can clean up confusion, teach you want you need to know, and empower you to do the work you need to do. Start by reading the Lightning Path books (listed below). Develop your foundation through exploration and discussion. Before you know it, your thinking and your life will transform.

Books are organized by topic area and level, with more advanced readings being lower down in the  list. Start with the Foundations and Basic LP Spirituality categories, and move forward from there.

You can purchase these books individually from the LP Press site (links provided below). Alternatively, LP students get access to all these books, plus additional student resources, readings, and audio. To become an LP student, register at this link.

Note, the LP is under heavy development. In order to help you identify when sources are updated, a simple versioning system is used.  Versions below 1.0 are first drafts. Major revisions are identified with integer changes (i.e. from version 1.20 to 2.0). Minor versions are identified by incremental changes (version 1.01 to version 1.05). The wider the range, the more substantial the revisions.

 

Foundations

Books in this category are “foundational.” These books provide a strong foundation upon which to build your effort to enlighten and transform. These books provide you with basic concepts, basic spiritual techniques, and a critical perspective on spirituality, the economy, and the world around you.

The Great Awakening is a gentle introduction to human spirituality. It covers common spiritual misconceptions that confuse and disempower us, provides basic concepts to help understand the transformation process, and provides basic spiritual technique so you can get the ball rolling. The book also provides guidance on various spiritual "gotchas" that can interfere with forward progress, or bump you of the path.

Archetypes and Right Throught

We have want answers to the big questions. We all want to know who we are. We all want to know why we are here? Books in this section provide the answers to these questions, not by telling you what they are, but by showing you what’s wrong with our current answers, and giving you the tools and techniques you need to figure it out for yourself.

These books rely on foundation and basic concepts, ideas, and techniques. You’ll get the most out of these books if you build the foundations, and learn the basics, first.

Big questions are questions of identity, purpose, and origin, like "Who am I?", "Where did I come from?", and "Why am I here?" Archetypes are the "big ideas" in your brain that answer the "big questions" of your life. Your brain is filled with archetypes and ideas that provide ready made answers to all the big questions. However, since birth you have been fed erroneous and deceptive archetypes about your identity, origin, and purpose. You have been told lies about your origin. You have been decieved about your purpose. You are not evolving ape. You are not a fallen soul. You are not a karmic trainee. This is not a cosmic schoolhouse. The truth is you are Consciousness. The truth is, you are light. The truth is, you have divine purpose. The truth is, you are God.

In LP Workbook Four learn about enslaving Old Energy archetypes and emancipating New Energy archetypes . Learn about The System that puts the ideas place and what you need to do to clear out the enslaving old energy ideas with emancipating new energy truths.

In the beginning Spirit was and spirit moved, no thing and everything contained in a single drop of glorious creative potential. And then, Spirit thought, and from that thought sprang all of Creation.

Have you ever wondered, “What’s the purpose?” Have you ever asked, “What’s The Plan?” Have you ever said, “What’s it all for?” If you have ever asked these questions, and if you are not satisfied with the common religious, scientific, or esoteric answers, then The Song is for you. The Song of Creation is the complete, canonical, and glorious New Energy story of creation. The Song tells the glorious truth of our plan and our purpose, our mission and our work, but it leaves out all the Old Energy clichés and corruptions, all the hierarchies and exclusions, and all the excuses and justifications that you find in other creation stories

Uplift your mind, expand your consciousness, and reach for your soul. Read the Song of Creation today.

There is a lot of talk in esoteric circles about “initiation.” For some it is a secret ceremony with your boy buddies. For others it is a dream sequence involving electricity. For others it is an entheogen led dive into the watery depths of consciousness. What is “initiation.” So many opinions, so little consensus. On the Lightning Path initiation is simply activation. On the LP initiation is the removal of energetic blockages and the temporary or (preferably) permanent reactivation of your body’s sophisticated and powerful energy system. On the LP Initiation has profound consequences. Its nature is captured in vivid detail in the Halo/Sharp Power card. The Lightning Path Book Five – Initiation walks you through it all. It explains the nature of initiation, relates initiation to your body’s energy system, and provides guidance on safe activation. The book also provides guidance on coping with the “stuff” that will inevitably rise to the surface. The path forward from here is simple. Clear the “stuff” and proceed forward towards bliss, power, and glory.

Here is a little bit of truth that you’ve probably never been told before. Your body is a powerful manifestation device! It is a powerful vortex of creative energies and it allows you to manifest and create within the physical universe like no other thing. The truth is, the bottom line is, your physical body is a sophisticated and sensitive piece of spiritual engineering, powerful beyond measure, and capable of amazing feats of creativity far beyond any of the limited, impotent, and passive intimations of the “secret law of attraction.” The only problem is, as of this moment, the energy system of your physical body is blocked, shutdown, and damaged. Energy flows are either severely restricted, or they are internalized and repressed. The net result of the damage done is creative impotence and long term debilitating disease, even death! But you can turn that around and reclaim your power before it is too late. The Dossier of the Ascension provides foundational guidance on identifying fears and blockages, clearing energetic pathways, healing your physical unit, and reactivating your body's energy system. In this book find the powerful Great Invocation meditation (see Youtube visualization) along with several minor visualizations to help focus and clear energies. An essential prerequisite to full re-ignition (initiation) of your body's energy system.

The Book of Magic is a multi-volume treatise on chakra activation. Whereas The Dossier of the Ascension speaks in general terms about the major blockages to chakra activation, and discusses the big and little fears which cause the energetic constipation that leaves you spiritually impotent, The Book of Magic goes into great detail on how to handle and navigate the powerful new realities that are opened up when you successfully maintain chakra flow.
