Discipline of the Secret

The Holy Spirit as a Psychophysiological Phenomenon

by Michael Riddick

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Does modern Christianity have it all wrong? Find out how an ex-atheist came to realize God and offers unique insight into the teachings of Christ, the mystical experiences of the saints, and a completely new and revitalized understanding of the Holy Spirit as the powerful, possessing medium of communication between God and man.
The early church bishop St. Basil spoke of “the silent and mystical tradition…the unpublic and ineffable teaching,” of the early Christians. Similarly, the apostle Paul spoke of giving the “little ones in Christ, milk to drink, not meat.” This unpublic and ineffable instruction of the early Christians was the “meat” of Christianity, now lost to our modern age. Christianity, subject to persecution in its earliest days and acquiescent in its old age, has left nothing but a mediocre shell of what was truly a core discipline of monumental transformative power. This power, kept secret because of its sanctity, was hidden from the masses and lost but to a select few over the centuries. Christ said, “Many are invited, but few are chosen.” Are you? In this book, illumination is given to the mysteries of early Christianity, the mystical experiences of the saints and the teachings of Christ. Also evidenced is a novel understanding of the Holy Spirit and its role as the powerful, possessing medium of communication between God and man. The author notes, “The Holy Spirit is a tangible power experienced in the physiology of our body. It is not an idea, concept or belief, but a genuine transformative agent shaping our nervous system by a force not yet understood by science. It is the power by which we experience God in our body, which then may direct us, comfort us and reconcile us to His nature. In emptying our cup of human nature, we invite in the divine nature to fill us.”
About the author
Serving as a conduit for insight into the "mysteries," Riddick began his spiritual journey during his late teenage years. An atheist, turned Christian, Riddick holds Christianity to much scrutiny, yet does not deny his spirituality. This unusual combination, and his unique perspective, brings fresh insight into Christianity and the power and potential it may yield. Riddick holds a Bachelor's degree in Religion and Philosophy with a concentration on comparative religion.
