Register now for Kripalu weekend March 2006

Thomas Moore's and Joan Hanley's weekend session, March 10 to March 13, 2006: The Jesus Way of Bliss in Lenox, Massachusetts is open for registration.

See Barque: Thomas Moore posting Jesus Spirituality weekend at Kripalu for details.
"The early Christians lived in common awaiting for the parusia, the coming. They were awaiting that great day of the coming of the Lord, as though the Lord is coming from the outside! The Gospels do not say that, but that is the picture we get, a waiting for this remote event. The very fact that the Gospels say that the time of the coming is indefinite, means it all depends on you. If you create the proper conditions it will happen and this is the teaching of Christ and it can happen now, today.
The coming is an interior consciousness event. The new creation does not mean that everything (external) is going to change, it means that your ability to experience reality is going to change. If the coming of the kingdom, of the coming of Christ, of the day of the Lord, the great psycho-mystical experience is right here at hand, here and now, why don't we see it? What do we have to do?"
