Christianity and Eastern Spirituality.


When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.


Hi Deepak, I’ve recently begun reading your and other “consciousness guide’s” books on spirituality and human existence, and I’m really interested in Eastern spirituality. While I do find that many Eastern spirituality tenets are extremely beneficial to our humanly existence and higher form, I find that the Fundamentalist ” you can’t have Jesus and Buddha ” teaching greatly divides my views on spirituality. Basically, I’m an “open-minded,” liberal Christian, and do find myself devoted and connected to Christian tenets, yet I want to incorporate traditional Eastern spirituality into my own. The problem is: the New Age movement is condemned by most Christian faiths, and is way too open-minded to fit what I’m feeling. How can I still be a Christian, yet “lawfully” incorporate Eastern practices and tenets into my beliefs? Thank you so much.


In my book The Third Jesus I explain how the spiritual practice of experiencing one’s core consciousness through meditation brings you to the essence of Christ’s teachings. That, I believe, is the key to integrating Eastern spirituality with Christianity, while still remaining a Christian. You may also find the Gnostic teachings in early Christianity illuminating in how closely its wisdom matches Eastern thought.
