Spiritual Transformation and Recovery
Tim Moon underwent a spiritually transformative experience while recovering from alcohol addiction which opened him to the world of mystical spirituality. He shares the depth of his experience through his writings.
In the last three years, I have undergone a significant spiritual awakening. This newfound, unexpected enlightenment, has forced me to reconcile my newfound knowledge in the present, with old experience from the past, Requiring that I look at my life and thinking through a different lens. A lens that allowed me to blend the best of both. It also demanded that some of my past thinking be discarded. The following are a few essential things that have either substantially changed or that I simply can’t believe anymore.
Non-dual Christianity unlocks significant benefits for spiritual awakening. It promotes a deep spiritual connection to all reality, resulting in transcendent inner peace. It also brightens, completes and brings clarity to existing spiritual knowledge. Finally, it provides essential reconciliation between the Eastern and Western worlds, which the formal church has unfortunately forgotten.
This week Tim Moon has been busy writing up a message to be delivered to his 12th graders at their Baccalaureate. Turns out, this is advice for all ages. I bet we all wish we’d received a send off like this when we graduated high school. Please enjoy these 4 L’s for staying center in life.
Now that the Easter holiday is behind us it is fitting that we look to the next major event following Christ’s resurrection, His ascension into heaven. This event often does not get the attention it deserves in modern Christianity. It is overshadowed by Christ’s death and resurrection, a forgotten reality, rendering the death and resurrection of Christ less potent than they truly are.
The sense of being suddenly connected with an abiding unconditionally loving presence is a common claim by those who have had Near Death Experiences (NDEs). Although more gradual, and arguably less dramatic, I have experienced a connection to God that is similar to these near-death experiencers in my recovery from alcoholism.
In the second installment of this series on three mystical lessons learned, Tim Moon explains how his recovery from alcoholism introduced him to a reality that he can access by looking in and describes what it is like to live in heaven now.
Twenty-seven months ago I underwent a spiritually transformative experience during my recovery from alcohol addiction. This opened me up to a whole new world of mystical spirituality. In less than 3 years, I have gone from suffering a maddening craving and obsession for alcohol to enjoying a depth of spirituality that has empowered remarkable spiritual growth and physical healing. It has also restored a childlike innocence in my relationship to God and the people around me. In this three-part series, I will be sharing three lessons I learned during my recovery.
