episode 94: Secular Mysticism

"Secular Mysticism

By Paul Dunion | October 1, 2013

Secular mysticism is the theme of my latest book, “Path of the Novice Mystic – Maintaining a Beginner’s Heart and Mind”. Unlike most spiritual traditions of Mysticism which are connected to a particular religion, Secular Mysticism is not oriented around religion. Secular Mysticism offers us an alternative to either believing we can triumph over life or see ourselves as victims, conquered by life...

episode 92: The EVANGELICAL CHURCH IS BREAKING APART (Part 2, final part)

"I reject Eurocentric religion a.k.a racist religion because it promotes "divine colonization" and "divine imperialism." -Antonio Myers

"The way our sensibilities are shaped determines who we are, including the order of our loves. For many Christians, their politics has become more of an identity marker than their faith...




"On the flip side, many churches aren’t interested in catechesis at all. They focus instead on entertainment, because entertainment is what keeps people in their seats and coins in the offering plate. But as Jacobs points out, even those pastors who really are committed to catechesis get to spend, on average, less than an hour a week teaching their people. Sermons are short. Only some churchgoers attend adult-education classes, and even fewer attend Bible study and small groups...



episode 89: Porn Is Not the Problem, You Are. Complaining about the dangers of porn distracts from personal responsibility.

"So many religious people have a bad habit of trying to control who goes to Heaven and who goes to Hell and they have a bad habit of trying to be God." -Antonio Myers

episode 87: I permanently let the religious Jesus go! I permanently hold onto allegorical interpretations of Christlikeness from secular perspectives!

"The first three of these modes (literal, allegorical, and moral) were part of Christian tradition as expressed by Origen. St John Cassian (c. 360-435) added the fourth mode (anagogic) in 4th century.[4] His contemporary, St Augustine of Hippo (354-430) used the four fold interpretive method in his explanation of Christian doctrine, On Christian Doctrine...



episode 86: Characteristics of Unhealthy or Abusive Church Environments

"Based upon my own experiences, I have made the following additional observations about unhealthy and abusive church situations.

  1. Institutional Pride: The system is never the problem. If something goes good, the system gets credit for it. But if something goes bad, the system is not at fault, but rather some individual gets blamed for it. If anyone identifies problems with the system, that person will be marginalized, put down and discredited...



episode 85: I kissed the four walls called church goodbye part 2 (final part)

I live by right speech:"Right SpeechAbstinence from False Speech

Do not knowingly say what is not true. But note that this does not mean you have to tell people everything. The Buddha said that whatever we say should pass three tests at a minimum, and often a fourth: Is it true? Is it useful? Is it timely? (And the fourth: Is it welcome?)

Abstinence from Malicious Speech

This links to the intention of non-ill will...

"Jesus — whose parents had to flee to a foreign country to save his life — has followers who advocate to close the borders to desperate refugees. Christians shouldn’t be outraged about 666 pairs of so-called ‘Satan Shoes’ but completely resigned to voter disenfranchisement, the school-to-prison pipeline, the resegregation of public schools, the opioid crisis or the epidemic of mass shootings...
