“A personal connection with the unity of the cosmos”

Growing up I imagined what it would be like to participate in a spiritual night club, to feel the aliveness of life, dance, ritual, and art, in the direction of devotion. For the most part, I feel older traditions have grown stale, and I want my generation and those that follow to experience something hip, edgy, attractive, and cool—a palpable, direct, phenomenological experience of spirituality that they can recognize in themselves and each other—and this is where the Cosmic Mass comes in.

The night of the Cosmic Mass on December 1st I found what I was looking for. The music was perfect, hip and energetic, the rituals were on par with cultivating a personal connection with the unity of the cosmos, and I felt I could give myself over to a impersonal higher essence—I felt like an empty vessel I could give over to God. I knew I wanted to be a part of a community like this.

  1. I really think that you need to know that God is not impersonal; Try reading the Gospel of John from the New Testament and find Jesus Christ who is the Son of the true and only God, a Jesus who is our necessary Saviour and Redeemer; through Him we come to know the God who is personal; the cosmic christ is a deception or at best an over emphasis which leads away from our personal relationship with God; I pray that ‘you will know the Truth and the Truth will set you free

  2. Dear John, thank you for sharing your thoughts. Dr. Fox responds: “God is both personal and impersonal.” To learn more of the nature of the Divine as expressed throughout mystical Christianity and across world spiritual traditions, please see Original Blessing: A Primer in Creation Spirituality and One River, Many Wells: Wisdom Springing from Global Faiths
