Symbols and Concepts
One of the things you should know as you set out onto this path is that The Lightning PathTM presumes to be a complete system of spiritual thought and practice. Or at least, that’s the goal. When the SpiritWiki is complete, when the Lightning Path books are written, when the mentor program comes fully online, when the DVDs are burned and the web radio is transmitting, the Lightning Path will be a complete and self contained, no compromise, no strings attached system of spiritual transformation and global emancipation designed to take you from blindfolded denizen of the old world to shiny new member of a Divine World Order in no time at all. If you are interested in how that’s going to work, if you want a peek at the inner workings of the LP, then pay attention to the LP Theory and LP Symbols menus. Here and there I will expound upon the deep and inner workings of LP spirituality by focusing on the LP’s original and powerful use of symbols, archetypes, and concepts.
And just so you know, it’s nothing to be worried about. While avatars and avatar-wannabes in the past have forgotten their place and purpose and used symbols and concepts to manipulate, exploit, brainwash, foment hatred and duality, and even engage in mass murder (Hitler comes to mind here), here we are going to expose the inner archetypal workings of symbols used on the Lightning Path so you can not only learn to protect yourself against the selfish manipulations of those who would profit from the nefarious use of symbols and archetypes, but decide for yourself whether this is for you. After all, adopting any spirituality is a huge commitment and can have massive life consequences, so you want to be sure. If you have your doubts, if you are a little uncomfortable about gurus, prophets, avatars, and the like, that’s ok. You should be. Religions, spiritualities, and those who purport to know and understand have done many bad, bad things in the past and we (and by “we” I mean the people of this earth) really want to avoid that this time around.
With that said, let us look at some of the key symbols you will find while traveling The Lightning Path.
