Product description

Product Description

...suddenly he was there, in the corner, manifested, superimposed in the place where stood a beechwood chest of drawers with a mirror on top. He was in the midst of an aura of golden, living sunlight, which radiated out from him more than an arm’s length in all directions. He was about three or four paces from me.
As I became aware of his presence he began to move toward me. It was not a walking movement. He seemed to be above the floor a few inches, and he glided. The movement was relatively slow, certainly unhurried, but as he drew nearer he began to speak. I heard him with my ears, I experienced his speaking with my soul, with my heart; every cell in my body and every fibre of my being experienced his speaking. There was no part of my being that did not hear him. And every part of my being understood with a total certainty the meaning, at a soul-knowing level rather than an intellectual-knowing level of understanding, what was the true, mystical meaning of those words...
...By the time he had finished speaking he had reached less than an arm’s length from where I was standing. His aura of golden, living sunlight had enveloped me, and the feeling of Love — of agapé — to my being was so intense, so powerful, so uplifting to my spirit that I felt as if my heart had grown to the size of a football and was going to burst out of my chest cavity. This feeling of all-pervasive, all-inclusive Love was complete, permeating not just my body but my entire aura in an orgasm of the soul, immeasurably more intense than any such physical experience. I was blinded by a waterfall of joyful, rapturous tears and every part of me was alive, electrified, as never before.
His presence was visible in the midst of the light of his aura, which was at least as bright as the sun but did not hurt my eyes at all. With me now fully enveloped by his aura, he stopped. His eyes were radiating the all-knowing wisdom of the ages, and love; personal love as well as universal, unconditional Love. I knew he loved me personally, in a way and with a Love that is utterly beyond any love I had ever known, heard about or experienced in this world. He embraced me; not with his ‘physical’ arms but with every part of his being ― with his total, unconditional, intimate, penetrating, all-encompassing, all-pervasive Love. I was a quivering jelly. Not from fear (how could fear exist in such an exquisitely beautiful, magnificent encounter?) but from being overwhelmed by the power of his Love... I remember reading at some later date, in the book of Revelation, chapter 1 verse 16, …and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength, and saying to myself, ‘That is an exact and perfect description of his appearance.’

This is an extract from “Seek ye First the Kingdom...” One man’s journey with the living Jesus. It tells the story of Brian Longhurst's encounters with the wisest, most loving tutor of all time.

Brian brings a quiet authority to his words that can come only from decades of leading by and guiding from he who has all power in Heaven and Earth. This book - matter-of-fact, often humorous and easy to understand, even for newcomers to spiritual reality - brings to the reader a liberating and empowering sense of peace, enlightenment, upliftment and encouragement.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspired and readable! 14 October 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is truly inspired. The author chronicles his spiritual journey in a narrative that is both enlightening and entertaining. The centerpiece is his life changing experience of contact with Jesus. The teachings of Jesus are presented in context of their true mystical nature, in contrast to the dogmatic mythology of traditional, so called, Christian churches.

In A Course in Miracles, a passage from the Clarification of Terms says this about Jesus: “Walking with him is just as natural as walking with a brother whom you knew since you were born, for such indeed he is. Some bitter idols have been made of him who would be only brother to the world. Forgive him your illusions, and behold how dear a brother he would be to you.” This is how Jesus is lovingly presented in Seek ye First the Kingdom.

The spiritual message is woven throughout anecdotes of the author’s life and experiences, which makes for interesting and easy reading. Still… I read most of it slowly, taking time to breathe in the feeling of the message. I was happy to discover this book and add it to my spiritual library. I look forward to reading more from this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genuine and Faithful account of a lover of God. 14 August 2014
By A Friend - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is one man's honest account of his life and relationship with the Living Jesus. What and who is the 'Living Jesus' ? For Brian, Jesus is a best friend, a teacher, a companion, the Voice for God, and a mirror for Brian of his True Self. Personally, I know this book to be genuine and deeply heart felt. To have this on going commitment and communication with Jesus is something all of us have the capacity to experience. Brian's destiny in this life seems to give us all an example of the power and reality of the Inner Life as the priority we are meant to have. Thank you for taking the time to write this account, Brian, and of your commitment to the Love of God.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Bard of Glouchestershire 10 October 2013
By s k spahn, louisiana - Published on Amazon.com

Brian Longhurst is a bard. Like that other English bard, Brian is a master at weaving a tale. What a delight to discover, on what all to often can be a heavy and serious journey into spirituality, this absolutely light-hearted and funny adventurer. Brian could well be my neighbor, or the guy in the seat next to me in one his famous English pubs. Employing stories as his loom and words as his yarn, he spins his colorful tales compellingly. Glistening and colorful, "Seek Ye First the Kingdom..." is the delightful story of Brian and Theresa Longhurst's life lived with Light. Far from the cathedrals and sermons of traditional religion, the Longhursts commune with the Living Jesus. With Brian at the keyboard, the Jesus of old steps right out of the dead pages of history books and dust-covered bibles to join you in the easy chair of your own living room. Sharing Brian's vision of the Master at the banquet table is a radically new way of seeing, hearing and learning from Jesus.
"Seek Ye First the Kingdom..." is not just a book, it is an invitation. If you've got "eyes to see and ears to hear"...accept your engraved invitation and begin your own adventure!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Awesome! 4 December 2013
By EBey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Beginning from a young age, he experienced the Holy Spirit in person. Those experiences have been the energy behind all of his life experiences. He never swayed from his calling; has faith had become embedded deeply in him. Brian is a teacher to all of us.

I found his writing humorous, exciting, witty and thought-provoking. These words resonated with me “nothing from the Source of All will coerce any of us into embarking upon a journey for which we are not yet ready.” How true that is. Everything has it time; we cannot forced anything to occur. A prime example is the butterfly which goes through metamorphosis. If the cocoon is opened too soon, the butterfly dies.

We must have an open mind and heart to be receptive to the energy of the Source. Brian’s many direct contacts with Spirit are due to his “at-one-ment”) with his Higher Self; the same can be applied to all of us if we believe and listen to our inner guide. I enjoyed reading about his traveling experiences and his connection to their children of the spiritual realm (especially “Jessica.” It is not about waiting for God to decide for us; we have to choose and through our choosing all else falls into place. Theoretically, there are no wrong choices.

How beautifully he explains the infinite link we have with God as there is no separation. That which is infinite has no end, thus how can we be separate? Our perception believes such separation exists. It is an illusion and we as humans have identified with the physical. It is the corrupt thinking of the ego.

“Time is part of the illusion of separation from Eternity, and only appears to progress in a linear fashion…nothing, other than that in the perception of a confused, fragmented, upside-down, split-off from reality part of the man of Papa’s Son. Linear time does not exist for God….there is only the eternal moment of NOW, which is perfect Love, joy, peace and the sublime ecstasy of oneness in the Heart of God. (p. 142)

(I love Papa, although I use “Momma.”) Thank you for not losing focus on your journey and to continually placing God first in your life. What a joyful read!
