Consciousness is the root of all things. Michael Sharp
Theology is the study of God. On the Lightning Path, God is a syncretic term for The Fabric of Consciousness (or just Consciousness. Therefore, on the Lightning Path, the study of God is the study of Consciousness. Since "consciousness is the root of all things" (Sharp, 2006), including Physical Creation, the study of consciousness is, technically, the study of all consciousness and creation in toto.
For the purposes of spiritual study, Lightning Path theology can be broken down into the study of:
- Consciousness → Nature of Consciousness / Unfolding of Consciousness
- Physical Creation → Emanation/Unfolding of Physical Creation (Cosmology)
- The Emergence and development of Life, in particular as a vehicle for Consciousness
- The Ascension of Physical Creation
