Show Notes

Christopher and Riley explore the spiritual exercises of cosmic consciousness and cosmopolitanism as practiced by the Roman Epicureans and Stoics, and the early Christians. These spiritual exercises were taught by Roman philosophers Lucretius, Epictetus, Marcus Aurelius, and Seneca. They were also taught by Jesus of Nazareth, who was Seneca’s contemporary, as recorded in the apocryphal Gospel of Thomas as well as in canonical Scripture. Cosmic consciousness and cosmopolitanism are a way past cherubim and the flaming sword back into the paradisiacal garden of Eden where we can experience the peace of the presence and love of God in unity with Him in the eternal now free from duality and enmity.
