Christian mystics pursue a threefold path of ascent to God. This threefold path consists of the purging of the soul of all that is unlike God; illumination that displaces ignorance with the light of God; and finally union of the soul with God.
This path is the imitation of Christ. When you imitate Christ—mirroring his life, work, great love and healing power—you displace the not-self with the true Christ Self. That Christ is being formed in you!
In this edition of The Prophet Archives, Elizabeth Clare Prophet shows you the stages of Christian mysticism that you can master with examples from the enlightening writings of Christianity’s leading spiritual pioneers.
