LP in a nutshell
The Lightning Path (or simply LP for short) is a modern system of human development that provides you with the information you need in order that you might heal, awaken, activate, and ascend (i.e. connect) more fully to the powerful Consciousness that resides within you.
In developing its model/paradigm for human development, the LP blends scientific humanism, authentic spirituality, and progressive economics.
Humanism is a philosophical and ethical position that emphasizes human agency, human value, and the inherent goodness of human nature. Humanists prioritize human development and the full expression of human potential, and look to science to understand humans and our world.
The LP is humanistic to the extent that it prioritizes human needs and human values, asserts that humans are by nature good (see the articles Born to be Good and What does it mean to be human). Humanism relies, on empirical evidence and scientific theory to help understand humans and our place in the cosmos.
On the Lightning Path, and for reasons that become clear in the course of study, we do not view human spirituality, mysticism, or even “divine revelation” as incompatible with human science. The two should fit together like two sides of the same human coin. If they do not fit comfortably and in a complementary fashion, something is wrong with one, the other, or both.
That said, we do not accept traditional spiritualities because we view them as ideologically and economically tainted corruptions designed to undermine connection and subvert authentic human spirituality. Instead, we work to develop an Authentic Spirituality that honors and reflects the empirical truths of our human spiritual experience, and that teaches connection as the primary spiritual and humanistic goal.
The book Rocket Scientists’ Guide to Authentic Spirituality provides the definition and basic principles of authentic spirituality.
Realization of full human potential requires an economic system devoted not to unfettered accumulation and private profit, but to the creation of environments and institutions that can advance human evolution and support the realization of full human potential. In our view, all extant economic systems are based on unfettered accumulation and private profit and are therefore incompatible with the humanistic and spiritual desiderata of the Lightning Path.
The book Rocket Scientists’ Guide to Authentic Spirituality (RSGME) reveals the “esoteric” secrets of money, identifies “the problem” as addiction to money, exposes The System of accumulation for what it is, i.e. manipulation of “the many” by “the few,” and offers some tentative suggestions for moving forward towards a more progressive economic future. RSGME is accompanied by the video Money Moksha. Moksha is the Sanskrit word for “release,” or “discharge of debt.” Money Moksha is a video about the problem and its solution.
