Mystic Pete Chronicles: Sex and Mysticism.
There's no doubt that Mystic Pete clearly fits in that classification, as he quite obviously comes across as an earthy-crunchy kind of guy that not only shares a lot of valuable insights, but also a person who has the ability to be very entertaining. There's a lot of valuable and practical information in this book, and while I don't necessarily agree percent with all of his positions, I can confidently say that this book is an excellent resource for anyone walking the path of spiritual growth. With that said, I do feel it's important to note that for those readers who may have more conservative viewpoints about sexuality, there may be some parts of this book that you might not resonate with.
Is the world about to end, or about to begin? Surfing the Eroto-Astral realms. Laugh your way to mystical power. Mystic Pete is a radio host, producer, author and true mystic. In saying this he wrongly believed that he was damning Christianity for good, when in fact he was describing it perfectly.
If you read the Gospels you will find the impossible being made possible on virtually every page.

The authorities, therefore, were reluctant to act against him, as they are against the plethora of modern Quietists today, albeit in slightly different garb. However, his teaching contained two major fault lines that alerted the Vatican and forced it to act. The first was that in prayer you have to present yourself to God like a lump of dough waiting to be soaked in syrup.
Secondly, doing nothing included doing nothing about temptations too, most particularly sexual temptations.

That is why he was not only condemned for falling into the heresy of the primitive reformers, but for a series of sexual sins cited at his trial. Vigilantes who could not distinguish between genuine mystical prayer and its counterfeit were outraged. Even though these self-righteous ignoramuses are no longer with us they have managed to breed into our spiritual psyche a fear of Mystical Theology, just as the black death filled us with a fear of rats. The mystic way in which the saints, the mystics, the martyrs and great spiritual leaders of the past had been schooled for thousands of years, was not only misunderstood, it was condemned.
This school became the model, the paradigm for the other Public schools and Grammar schools down the centuries.
These two moral teachings, one from the Greco-Roman tradition, the other from the Judaeo-Christian tradition were, when harnessed together, meant to form perfect English gentlemen. We were encouraged to imitate the great saints in religious class and the heroes of classical antiquity in history class.
Could I be blamed for choosing Alexander the Great and his mentor Achilles as my heroes? I found it far more inspiring to destroy my enemies than to allow them to destroy me. That is until I grew out of pimples and into poetry and read those famous words of William Butler Yeats.
