The Path of Trust, Part 1: What is It?

My last blog St John of Revelations broke a record in reader responses. I take this to mean a lot of you would like my Rogue Scholarly progress to venture down the path of more religiously iconoclastic themes, such as posing that St. John’s famous closing chapter in the New Testament was not hiding a prophecy about the future but exposing a man suffering from post traumatic stress disorder. It is possible John survived the sack of Jerusalem by the Romans. He had become their prisoner in later years, exiled to the island of Patmos on the Aegean Sea. There he sat in his dark cave, like a wounded, grumpy-bear evangeloid with candle and parchment, he began scratching out his letter to the Churches that soon switched tone into a docu-demented psychotic episode becoming the Book of Revelation.

In that blog I began to share some stories about a man who had a chief influence in my spiritual education while visiting this mortal coil. The anecdote and the picture of Osho stimulated a lot of interest, vigorous comment, debate and a few hit-and-run acts of emailed calumny. Many of you seek a clarification about my take on Osho and gurus in general and I feel the time has come to ramp the HogueProphecy narrative up a notch for a few rounds of postings. Let us explore for a bit the higher definition of prophecy beyond being the act of forecasting the future, to prophecy as the message of good news and revelations of eternal truths showered on us by authentic masters. We will still provide each posting of this four-part series with a fix on current events tied to forecasts about and fulfillment of predictions for 2010.
