The human mind has spiritual currents running through its thought streams. These streams contain vital information from Spirit that is highly valuable to humans. Spirit is the source of everything TRUE, BEAUTIFUL, and GOOD and conveys these ideals through the human mind that intersect with a person’s beliefs, helping the individual ascend into the higher information that uplifts and improves the quality of life.
In human life, spiritual growth is achieved by aligning with these spiritual currents that come from both the personality and mind of Spirit by intellectual assent and emotional devotion. Christ Consciousness is the growing human recognition and blending of the human evolutionary (or ego) mind with the Divine Mind and the Divine Personality that is the source of human happiness and fulfillment. This awareness accrues over time within the consciousness of human thinking when intention, attention, and openness is focused on knowing who and what is that “christed” state of being—that higher mindedness of enlightenment.
As this awareness in the human mind grows and strengthens, life becomes more liberated, joyful, peaceful, and love-dominated. The fear which creates isolation and despair begins to diminish in thought and feeling. You are free to live the life you were born to live — as a child of Spirit in a love-filled and supportive universe.
Is Christ Consciousness Christian? Do I have to be a Christian to achieve Christ Consciousness?
The highest state of intellectual development and emotional maturity is sometimes termed the “christed” state because of the sacredness and purity of the individual who has achieved it. Jesus achieved this in his human life, and was given this term before his name as the recognition of his achievement of this spiritual status. This path is open to anyone regardless of their religious tradition if and when he or she is open to become a living vessel of LOVE and TRUTH on the planet and actively strives to attain it.
This is not a term used exclusively in the Christian religion, nor does it mean that you must adhere to the Christian belief system to attain this state. All of the world’s religious traditions offer a path to achieving this “christed” status, and people are free to find their way in the context of their religious choice. What is significant to remember here is that each person has his and her own path to finding Spirit, and to open to allowing that path to unfold naturally. Sometimes people find their way within the context of certain religious beliefs that the major world’s religions offer; some people will find their way by blending some beliefs together in a unique and innovative way. All ways and paths are honored if they lead a person into becoming more loving, forgiving, patient, kind, compassionate, tolerant, and happy. All paths of LOVE lead to the same Source of All That Is. We all share the same Creator-Source as living expressions of that Source Personality and we all are moving back home to unite with our Source.
Christ consciousness is the state of awareness of our true nature, our higher self, and our birthright as children of God. Christ consciousness is our living expression as a child of Spirit as we unfold our own divine life plan onto the earth plane: bringing heaven to earth. Living in the reality of our “christed” self is actually being fully alive and invested in who we truly are. In our “christed” self we live as inspiration for others to seek this for themselves so we can collectively move our planet forward into the divine plan for planetary transformation and glorification.
Jesus: The Inspiration for Human Life
It is the goal of human life to evolve toward Spirit. This is the journey that unfolds over the course of one’s lifetime—it is the adventure of moving from time and space to eternity. Spirit ever reaches into the hearts and minds of humans to urge us to choose the ascension path to unite with the Source of Creation. One way Spirit does this is to incarnate as a human to reveal Spirit’s personality to humanity to serve as encouragement to discover and walk the path of Spirit. God actually steps down into the skin of a human to show us the way back home. The person who fulfilled this role for us is Jesus.
Jesus’ teachings centered around helping people find their own internal source of Spirit. He lived what he taught. He was the embodiment of love and goodness, peace and understanding. His God-centeredness allowed him to achieve what we consider miracles because he understood the natural laws of the universe and was able to tap into the great power of love to bring healing to people. He practiced meditation and prayer to gain strength to meet the challenges of daily life. He consistently showed love, kindness, patience, gentleness to others and encouraged them to open to the Spirit within themselves. He said, “The kingdom of Heaven is within.” He lived his life to show us how to find Spirit and what a human personality looks like when he or she is Spirit-centered. He paved the way for us to find God for ourselves.
Jesus’ divine life plan disclosed itself to him over the course of his lifetime. Just as we can open ourselves to our Indwelling Spirits to find our own higher purpose, Jesus accomplished this during his human lifetime. He is an inspiring guide to help us achieve this for ourselves. Once he fully achieved his own state of “Christ consciousness” he was able to manifest and depict to others his divine self. His life purpose was two-fold and provides the living link between our Creator-Source and humanity: to show each person how to experience God in himself/herself and for himself/herself, and then to embody the Creator and reveal God’s love for each person to those who were ready to grow in Spirit.
The significance of Jesus’ life overshadows the Christian religion that evolved from human thought and beliefs about his life over the centuries. You can have a personal relationship with Jesus that is more satisfying than any idea coming from a belief system that you may have learned about him. Invite him to enter into your heart and mind and give you answers to the pressing questions about your life. Invite him to show who he is and the role he can play in your life to help you become more of who you truly are. You can ask him any question.
No question is off limits; even those regarding his teachings and the Christian religion that evolved around the events and mysteries of his life. He will give you the truth about himself and the teachings of Christianity that trouble you or cause you to have doubts about or reject him, questions about the crucifixion and why it occurred, questions about God’s relationship to humans, questions about his teachings and resulting human interpretation; anything at all. He is open to hearing your complaints, your questions, and your concerns. He will address each one of them in a manner that will have you amazed and delighted at what you learn.
Jesus is much better and more approachable than any institutionalized belief system about him. In going directly to him, you will get an enhanced picture of who he is and the role he can play in your life to help you become a better person, to find happiness and fulfillment, to accompany you during your struggles, to give you courage and strength, and to help you find the answers to all of the urgent and pressing questions of your life. He was tested here as a human and there is no one living past or present that has his unique perspective on life. He is here for you now. Invite him into your life and allow him to delight you to your heart’s content.
Seeded inside every human heart is a tiny bud. This is the embryonic soul: the growing part of your personality which houses your divine nature. What waters this seed is Spirit—divine love with its kaleidoscope components: color, vibration, sound, light, pattern, texture all a reflection of the magnificent wondrous Source of creation. The tender bud responds to everything that is good, beautiful, and true. Spirit energies weave around the little spark of divinity breathing life and love into it. Growth of self emerges as the divine nature and the human consciousness combine to yield a flower of great beauty and fragrance, unique and vital to cosmic fabric of reality.
The plan to become a large, loving, vibrant soul housed in a human body is the goal of our existence. It is our ideal to strive for. All of the potential for us to be our best self expressing our many talents, abilities, divinely bestowed gifts can be realized in our daily lives. There is within our being, in our core, those endowments of Spirit that lovingly help us achieve this. We are so loved and adored by Spirit; we are offspring of Creation and Spirit constantly seeks to unify with us. Opening the door to our deepest nature means looking past those things that get in our way to seeing who we truly are and asking for that divine part of us to stir, awaken, and grow. Allowing ourselves to feel the adoration of Spirit for us is the means for us to open the door to becoming spirit.
Healing of the soul opens the door to our divine persona as the barriers that obscure our true selves are gently absorbed and eliminated by Spirit—pure love. To find your true self—to tap into your soul—is to go beyond the resistance and pain deep within your being, and to ask for the source of love within to expand all deeply-embedded obstacles of the psyche into light. Gently and gracefully will all of the crusty layers of a false self-image respond to the saving energies of Spirit as the new energies of radiant glorious light build you into a new substance like itself: pure Spirit. The new strands of energy change the environment in the consciousness of self and the body is built in the new language that changes the structure of DNA. Little by little do we become anew; truly are we then born of the Spirit claiming more and more of our divine birthright to be children of God.
