The Man in the Mirror

A powerful song sung by Michael Jackson about the importance of healing the “man in the mirror,” which is, on the LP, “the center”, or the “Self in the middle.” As Michael sang, if you want to heal the world, start with your Self and move on out from there. 

Authentic Marxist Spirituality

This is an article by George N. Lundskow who is a sociologist of religion. This article is an attempt to offer Neopagan spiritualities up as what on the LP we would call Authentic Spirituality but what he calls Progressive Spirituality.  Lundskow recognizes that...

Working Class Hero

A song about Toxic Socialization, by the late, great John Lennon. As relevant now as it was 50 years ago. Paul, et. al., keep singing those “silly love songs.”

Navigating reConnection

This article is excerpted from Triumph of Spirit Book Two: New and Old Energy Archetypes. This book explains archetypes, creation templates, and gives you the tools you need to remove mental limitations, reprogram your brain, and transform yourself and your world....

LP Alignment Rule Set

Alignment Rule Sets, like the Ten Commandments or the Eight Fold Path, have been around for centuries. The LP offers a modern and up to date rule set suitable for guiding you towards strong and pure connection.

“H” is for help – Not a sign of weakness

This draft article, which outlines the importance of getting qualified and competent help in your healing and reconnection journey, is excerpted from Lightning Path Workbook Two: Healing. It would be nice if we could say that healing and reconnection are easy...

Rethinking psychedelics

Here are some articles on the healing and connecting properties of LSD, psilocybin, and other  Connection Supplements of longer duration and deeper penetration. Feel free to suggest resources in the comments section.

Being nice to become an alpha male

Here is a short little article from an Asian newspaper that reports on ten years worth of research at Minnesota's Jane Goodall Institute Center for Primate Studies. This study shows that "alphas" are not typically the "bully type," but in fact use multiple...

Addiction to money

What’s wrong with the world today? Lots of different things, that’s true, but addiction to money is at the center. Addiction to money distorts human society and destroys human life. It’s time to wake up and get some help.

Are bullies alpha males or sick puppies?

An article about healing and awakening. If you’re a typical “alpha type,” and if you use concepts like “alpha male” to justify and normalize your behaviour, you may need to rethink your self-image. Alpha is not healthy behavior. It is pathology rooted in childhood and environmental trauma.

“Alpha male” or sick puppy?

In this article, we look at “alpha behaviour” and call it for what it arguably is, dysfunctional and toxic psychopathology. The cure, or at least a first direction towards a cure, is simple. Replace unnatural all-male, and all-female, social structures with strong, healthy attachments within functional, “wolf-pack” families.

Born to be good

Priests and some scientists tell us we are evil and savage inside. There is a Freudian Id, and Jungian shadow, a primitive cheap and “damn dirty ape.” But recent science shows that, contrary to ideology, humans are in fact born to be good. The problem is it is beaten out of us and suppressed.

The times they are a changin – Bob Dylan

This song is most certainly talking about the collective awakening that was occurring in the 60s and 70s, before The Family, with the assistance of Hollywood and the actor Ronald Reagan, shut it down. As anybody reading these lyrics will attest, we’re living through another “time changing” moment.

Ego Explosion

Has your [bodily] ego exploded? It is an understatement to say there is a lot of misconception about spiritual awakening and spiritual connection (a.k.a. ascension) out there. It is often a case of the blindfolded leading the blindfolded. I suppose it wouldn't be so...

Live High – Jason Mraz

This song is a anthem to Connection (live high), activation and empowerment (live mighty) and alignment (live righteously). It is a celebration of the depth of creation. It is statement of belief in the divinity within (God peeking through the blinds), the power of...

Babylon System

Any intermediate or advanced or LP student will recognize this song for what it is, a strong condemnation of the soul sucking, vampire System. On the nature of the System, Marley is quite clear.

Jason Mraz – Love for a Child

Mental health and happiness are elusive things for most people. The problem is our modern capitalist societies have convinced us that to be happy we have to buy products. In the process the true core of happiness, which is aligned, positive, self-identity, is lost. What’s worse, our search for happiness is turned into a desperate drive to have more, and more, and more. The GRAND ILLUSION is that all this purchase is what makes us who we are. However it is not true. True happiness only comes from finding out who you really are, and living in alignment with that self.

What to do if your child is an empath

The Child Empath As children, we are all naturally empathic. As children, we are all highly sensitive to the environment and empathic to life around us. The problem for us all is that, as we grow up, a toxic and violent "system" beats the empathy out of us and we...

What to do if your spouse is an empath

As children, we are all naturally empathic. That is, as children, we are all highly sensitive to the environment and connected to life that surrounds us. The problem for all of us is that, as we grow up, a toxic and violent "system" beats the empathy out of us. As we...

The New Arms Race, the Third World War

This is an article I wrote for The Conversation. This is the draft submitted to the editor. It is placed here as originally written, and in advance of publication, exclusively for LP students. My introduction to advanced communication technology (i.e. the Internet and...

Teen Suicide and Toxic Socialization

What causes physical, emotional, and mental illness? In a word, Toxic Socialization. The damage from toxic socialization is profound, and can range form "simply" psychology, to profound disconnection, to taking one's own life. In this article written for The...

Entheogens

In this article I want to take a brief look at the issue of entheogens or Connection Supplements as I like to call them. In this article I give general guidance and advice on how to safely approach their use as facilitators of authentic connection experience.

Everybody has a Mystical Experience

We live in a where most people believe in God. Despite propaganda to the contrary, the number of atheists in the world remains rather small (only 3% in the U.S.A and only 9% in Canada), and this is even after a couple centuries of scientific progress (Hunsberger &...
