Recently, a reader asked me to briefly explain what I meant by Christ Consciousness. It is discussed in my newest book The Oneness Gospel: Birthing the Christ Consciousness and Divine Human in You (coming soon!)
By Christ Consciousness, I mean the state of attunement and alignment Jesus had with the Father, a state of being, and elevated state of consciousness. A state where only love exists.
Hence, he was so identified with the Father, he considered himself one with Him at all times. You will find him referring to himself as such, throughout the Gospel of John.
It is important to note that he told us we could achieve this state too, with diligence and attention paid to what we carry – our thoughts, intentions, and our forgiveness factor. Also, an awareness of what resides in our hearts, which hopefully, is good (God). These are all are important to rising in conscious awareness of our relationship to Spirit. In The Oneness Gospel, I discuss this state of oneness, talk about how we discover it, and make it work in our lives.
Since I went to India this year, I noticed many congruencies with some of the teachings of the monks who studied under Sri Amma Bhagavan, the founders of the Oneness University India, and the teachings of Jesus. I thought this was very interesting! In many respects, the two camps are really talking about the same ideas, only using different terms. I thought my readers would be interested in the oneness teachings enough to spark their interest in New Testament, and read it with fresh eyes. To embrace it at a metaphysical and metaphoric level!
Remember, whether we are from the East or West, and no matter our wisdom tradition, we are all one people who carry the same light within. It is the Christ within that illuminates your life (and the life of others). When we attune with that, and realize our potential, it allows us to achieve excellence in all things. When we recognize it in ourselves, we can then see it in our family and friends, and all of humanity.
How do you view this light that is within you? Do you feel this helps you rise in confidence and tackle difficult circumstances? Does it assist you in inspiring and uplifting others? In what ways do you rise in conscious awareness? Let share some thoughts!
Today’s tip from a reader: pay careful attention to using auspicious language and simply speak positive in all ways, no matter what is going on in your life! See if you notice any difference in your energy, attitude, and the way people react to you.
There is a wonderful affirmation on Daily Word at www.unity.org! See http://www.dailyword.com/ about excellence and the Christ Light within. Check it out!
Have a beautiful day, filled with many blessings. Thank you for writing in!
