Spiritual Liberation

Fulfilling Your Soul’s Potential
by Michael Bernard Beckwith | Atria Books/Beyond Words © 2008 · 272 pages

Michael Beckwith runs the Agape church in Los Angeles and is one of the most plugged in human beings I've ever seen. In this Note, we'll explore some of his many Big Ideas—including how important discipline is and the fact that as we rock it, our discipline turns to blissipline. We'll also see how to avoid spiritual constipation by PRACTICING what we study and how even enlightened beings burn their bagels on occasion (so we can prolly relax into our own imperfections).

“My central message is not about religiosity or churchianity. It is about aspiring toward spiritual liberation, which I define as becoming free from the narrow confines of fear, doubt, worry, and lack, and living instead from a conscious awareness of one’s Authentic Self, one’s true nature of wholeness.

Spiritual liberation results from discovering and expressing the intrinsic qualities of enlightened consciousness that have been ours since the moment we came into existence. Simply put, all that is required to live up to our highest potential is already inside us awaiting our conscious activation. Living up to our potential is about becoming more ourselves, more of who and what we are as awakened beings, a central theme you will encounter throughout this book.”

~ Michael Bernard Beckwith from Spiritual Liberation

Reverend Michael Bernard Beckwith is *easily* one of the most electrifying and energetic people I’ve ever seen.

He lights up the transdenominational church he founded over 20 years ago (the Agape Spiritual Center) every Wednesday and Sunday and if you find yourself in Los Angeles I HIGHLY recommend you check it and him out!

It’s simply impossible to capture his energy in a book, but Spiritual Liberation is packed with a bunch of Big Ideas I’m excited to explore. So, let’s get on it. :)
