To claim the birthright of our own divinity, we must care of our personal business first. When we develop self-awareness, we make room for the Presence to work through us. To prepare for the New Age (and blast off into a new vibratory realm to change the world), therefore, we have to start from the beginning and reflect on our past suffering and family problems. I know it’s no fun to take responsibility for our own joy; it’s much easier to place the blame for our perceived challenges elsewhere. But self-reflection and self-responsibility are the only ways to clear the pathway to truth if we don’t want to enter a religious order, which doesn’t work for most of us living in modern-day suburbia. With some prayer and application, we can learn to recognize the Presence in us so fully that there can be no differentiation in our existence and God’s. We already have at our disposal the most beautiful and enriching written wisdom, owned by all of humankind, so let’s embody the light. Everyday life can become the cocreative experience it was originally meant to be.
To work in conjunction with the Divine Presence, we need to be conscious that we exist as one. Cocreation is our natural state. The universe is one big, receptive, energy sphere. It reflects our intentions, thoughts, and actions, so we can learn to be conscious cocreators with the Divine Presence. For years, my spiritual work was simply getting people to think positively and affirm what was right and good in their lives. I taught people how to broadcast through their words and energies that they are whatever they think they are. When we invite success, prosperity, love, or any number of wonderful qualities into our experience, we are working with natural laws. We enjoy the results. It’s great practice.
But it’s not enough. Those of us who seek to be Christ lights and attune our consciousness with God (and as a result, create loving miracles of healing and abundance in our experience) must go beyond positive thinking and realize that we are one with the Father, no matter our perceived differences. That’s how to find the kingdom within. It’s also nice to have a mystical experience of a unified universe, a deeper connection, a sense of the eternal, that doesn’t discount our Christianity but rather refreshes it.
Oneness is our natural state. It is a complete harmonic convergence with the Divine, where we draw ourselves back to conscious oneness with all creation. It is our realization of God’s own reflection in the son of man, in all of humankind. In all of us. To have the Christ light within, or “have Christ in you,” is to obtain that level of consciousness. A Christed one is an enlightened person who has awakened to his or her own divinity and light, and who embodies the higher vibration and fully reflects God.
