The 49th Mystic

Quotes

"All negative emotions are rooted in fear, most commonly fear of loss, my father said. The fear of losing worthiness created jealousy, fear of losing honor created anger, fear of losing security created anxiety, and so it went."

"Belief! Like a placebo, which is a very weak version of the kind of belief I’m talking about. If you truly, truly, truly believe that something has happened, it manifests. Whatever you ask, believing it has been done, it will be done, isn’t that what he taught?”

"Instead, look with new eyes. Change your cognitive perception, your thinking. Yeshua called this practice metanoia as written in ancient Greek. Meta, which means ‘change’ or ‘beyond,’ and noia, meaning ‘thinking’ or ‘knowing.’ Metanoia.”

"Your beliefs are powerless to save you from worry and fear when you hold any record of wrong. True love holds no record of wrong. It’s the only way you can walk on water.”

"It was (Jesus) who also taught that the eye, perception, determines our bodily experience in this life. With clear perception, you see only light, unbound from the polarity of light and darkness. But if your perception isn’t clear, you will see darkness. Fear. So remove the plank of judgment that blinds you. Pluck out your eye if you must. It’s better to be physically blind and perceive the kingdom beyond polarity than to have two eyes and be in darkness."

"Human juice. Such a wonderful thing."

"Some said there was no irony or coincidence. That the light only used the darkness to reveal its brilliance."

"The thing about humans that few of them realized—they were powerful beyond imagination."

"When you feel lost, know that it is always because you are covering up your identity as the light with your denial of it. Like hiding your light under a basket."

"For all practical purposes, humans are their memories. You’re a mother, a lover, a victim, a writer, a farmer, because you remember being one."

"Even knowing that my struggles were simply good teachers, as Talya had said, eased my fear only a little."

"My body was as much an experience vessel as an earthen vessel. In the same way shadows allowed the eyes to see, death was playing its part by providing a contrast to life in the world of polarity."

"It struck me that all conflict was built upon preference for possession. My land, your land. My house, your house. My rights, my food, my child, my religion, my knowledge, my man, my woman, my body."

"Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil. Because that shadow is nothing to fear but fear itself. You can’t defeat a shadow. You need only turn to the light, ignoring the shadow cast by the earthen vessel."

"Even when I was lost in the journey of life, I was still going somewhere. Right then, feeling so lost, I was still on a journey of some kind. What journey? The journey of perception. Of learning to see."

"Innocent by reason of insanity, just like the whole world, I thought. Every last human on earth was acting out of their programming, however lost. Forgive them, for they know not what they do."

As Ralph Waldo Emerson once wrote, “The mind, once stretched by a new idea, never returns to its original dimensions."

This Book is For: You are interested in a riveting story that will give you invaluable insight into the truth of who you are.  If you are open to see the world in a new way, this book is for you.

This book would have profoundly changed my life if I would have been able to read it as a young man. It changed my life now, but in my teens and twenties it would have been nothing short of a revolution. Not only does it elegantly dispatch the misguided dogma of Religion, it opens a window to the true mystical and spiritual meaning behind some of the greatest teachings of all time.

Then to imagine that these teachings are wrapped in a story told by one of the world’s greatest fiction authors--It’s simply too much to ask. But yet here it is, one of the most important books to ever be written. If you are curious of the truth behind Jesus’s teachings, if you know anyone who is a Christian or a Catholic that might be open to challenging their understanding of the nature of God and the Church, this book is the gateway to freedom from delusion. And if you just want a hell of a good story, you can dive in for that too.

  • I agree with this persons comment above. God thru Ted Dekker stories are life changing: delivering us from the bondage of religion, into a water walking faith in what Jesus accomplished for us on The Cross. Legalism vs Grace. Polarity vs Faith, I’m always overwhelmed and meditating with God on ALL of these Pearls of Jesus’ teachings, hidden for those who are hungrily searching! In Christi is ALL.
