More than half of Americans are not affiliated with the Church (the number of people who have left the Church to reinvent their version of spirituality is over 100 million in the US and Canada, doubling in numbers globally) and this trend is sharply increasing in the last decade. Especially in light of current events, many are questioning the ways of the Church during a time of scandal and discontent. The Christian share of the U.S. population is declining, while the number of U.S. adults who do not identify with any organized religion is growing. Yet, the vast majority of people leaving the Church still consider themselves spiritual seekers. For those who are frustrated by the present teachings of the Church, enter spiritual mysticism, a belief that a union with Christ is attainable through absolution and self-surrender, allowing for unimaginable healing, joy, prosperity and peace. Antiquated Church doctrines are null and void and religious institutions exert control over followers of Christ with the idea that we are all sinners and the threat of eternal damnation. As a result, we have accepted material ideas as constants in the form of doctrines based on good and evil.
Author Anthony Nayagan personally struggled with material knowledge and unveiled his book, “Supreme Realization, A Journey into the depths of Conscious Energy, Healing, Joy, Prosperity & Peace,” a guide to connecting to Jesus Christ mystically, providing an explanation consistent with modern scientific discoveries in Quantum physics and cosmology. Since leaving the Church in his early twenties after studying the Vedas, Vedanta, and scriptures of other Eastern religions, Anthony paralleled Hinduism concepts, prayers, and rituals entrenched in the normal activities of people’s everyday lives, without a structured institution and hierarchy. So, he integrated these ideas to make a spiritual case for Christianity. Supreme Realization is a real-life journal of a Catholic, an ordinary sinful man who searched for Truth in all religions, staying away from Church for more than twenty-five years. It is a study of Christianity in light of modern scientific discoveries that recommends a deep-seated approach based on Mystical Theology for people of all religions, for everyday life, breaking down complex theological and spiritual subject matters such as consciousness and self realization and recommending pragmatic approaches for a fulfilled life in spirituality.
Anthony can speak or write on the following hot topics:
- Quasi-feudalism & the Church
- Moral theology and constraints for freedom
- Religious extremism as Christians being conformists
- Theology and the lack of wisdom
- Love with freedom and knowledge
- Wisdom and love as the cornerstones of life
- Prayer that leads to Healing from ailments
- Freedom in Christ
- Human rights and Christianity
- Isolation against the teachings of Christ
Anthony says, ”Religion is not about authentic conformity to scholarly interpretations of scripture. It is an experience realized. As conformists without questions, we often fall into religious extremism that exists in every major religion around the world. What breaks us out of this conformity induced extremism? Our freedom. Freedom to explore the scriptures at a deeper level. Such exploration demands that we develop inner freedom to a level of perfection. Supreme Realization provides a step-by-step guide to developing perfect inner freedom. Mysticism is not a qualification. It is a journey in which we come to realize what we are, as material, emotional and intellectual beings.”

More about Anthony Nayagan
Anthony Nayagan left the Church altogether in his twenties, learned writings in eastern religions, and avidly practiced Hinduism for three decades. Ten years before writing this book, he found his way back to the Church. His life experiences, interests, critical reading, radical thinking, contemplative meditation, and interpersonal relationship with The Divine contributed to this work. The author was a teenage alcoholic, suffered homelessness, clinical and spiritual depressions, and encountered all sorts of abuses as a child. He met with divorce, loss of children, and bankruptcies. He states, “My life experiences did not defeat me. Instead, they made me stronger in the joy of gratefulness to God. God remained faithful to make me learn that every attachment I held on to, is based on dualistic foundations. These will eventually perish. What is joyous and everlasting is the blessings based on wholesome knowledge; that is, the Wisdom of God.” Anthony Nayagan shares his own experiences and the wisdom he has found in a way that inspires, educates and motivates, and helps you open your own door to the spirituality and consciousness you seek. This book is the result of all those life experiences along with his interpersonal relationship with the Divine.

More than half of Americans are not affiliated with the Church. This trend is sharply on the increase in the last decade. The Christian share of the U.S. population is declining, while the number of U.S. adults who do not identify with any organized religion is growing, according to an extensive new survey by the Pew Research Center. Yet the vast majority of people leaving the Church still consider themselves spiritual seekers.
For those who are frustrated by the present teachings of the Church, alternatives that continue to share in Christ’s hope and love do exist. One of these alternatives is spiritual mysticism.
Mysticism is a belief that a union with Christ is attainable through absolution and self-surrender. It is not a new phenomenon in Christianity. It is as old as Christianity itself. During His time on Earth, Jesus trained all of His apostles to be mystics, as evidenced in all four gospels. In fact, in the Acts of the Apostles and their Letters, it is further evidenced how all His apostles turned out to be mystics. The mystic’s work, then and now, is a continuation of God’s work as long as God loves and cares for His creation. We, too, can experience this but we must develop a trusting, loving, and entirely dependent relationship with the Holy Spirit whose function is to help us delve into the mystical depths of any phenomenon such as this.
Supreme Realization, A Journey into the depths of Conscious Energy, Healing, Joy, Prosperity & Peace is a book directly written for this demography and demonstrates that we can have a life in Christ with or without the Church.
