Meet Your Holy Christ Self–Your Dearest Friend, Guardian and Teacher

3 Jul

Jesus explained the mystery of the Christ at the Last Supper.  He took a single loaf –symbolizing the one Word, the one Christ–and broke it and said, “This is my body, which is broken for you.” He meant, “This is the body of the Universal Christ that is individualized for each one as the Christ Self.”  Though there is but one absolute God and one Universal Christ, the body of that Universal Christ can be broken and each piece will retain all qualities of the whole.

Jesus told the disciples to eat the bread.  In other words, they were meant to assimilate and become one with the Universal Christ.  Mark Prophet, the founder of The Summit Lighthouse, summed it up nicely in a lecture he gave in 1970.  He said: I see God as a great loaf; and I see the Christ, the Universal Christ, breaking the loaf.  And the crumbs I see as the individual monads, you and me.  We are all crumbs that have fallen from the Lord’s table.   We’re each a drop of water from the infinite ocean.  We all have the qualities of the whole ocean, of infinite reality, in ourselves but we lack the quantity.  And only through reunion with the ocean, when the shinning dewdrop slips into the sea, only when we merge with God and with our Real Self can we be all that we’re supposed to be. It is our sense of separation from God that keeps us from the reality of ourselves.

The first step you can take in the process of reuniting with your I AM Presence is to develop your relationship with your Christ Self–your inner teacher, guardian, and dearest friend.  He is also the voice of conscience that speaks within your heart, showing you what is right and wrong.  Emerson writes of an “unseen pilot” that is similar to the  Christ Self.  We cannot see this pilot, he says, because it is like someone walking directly behind us.  The Christ Self is the unseen hand that helps you to see where you may be blinded by your habit patterns, many of which are shaped by your past actions.  And he helps you decide the way that is the best for your soul.

Your Christ Self overshadows you wherever you are and wherever you go.  He allows you to be “Christ conscious” at all times or, to put it another way, to have the “Christ consciousness.”  When you have the Christ consciousness, you are never in doubt or afraid. You have supreme confidence in your ability to accomplish what you have set your mind to.  You receive inspiration and guidance.  One you walk under the direction of your Christ Self, you can then begin to become one with him, which will also bring you closer to oneness with your I AM Presence.  Emerson wrote that if someone obeys the unseen pilot, it will “adopt” him.  The person will then become one with the pilot.  When a person is united with the unseen pilot, he will receive “richer and greater wisdom” and lead a “heavenly life.”

As you become closer to your Christ Self, the “unseen pilot,” you’ll realize that your Christ Self is the real you.  You’ll find yourself spending more time as the real you, a part of God, and less time being cut off from God. Eventually you, like Jesus, will experience your ascension as you become one with your I AM Presence.  The ascension is completed when you are fused your I AM Presence.  Though the path to the ascension is a journey of many lifetimes, if you focus your attention on it, you can reach it at the end of your present life.  To prepare for the ascension, you need to practice becoming one with that Presence.

Head

I AM Light, thou Christ in me,

Set my mind forever free;

Violet Fire, forever shine

Deep within this mind of mine.

 

God who gives my daily bread,

With Violet Fire fill my head

Till thy radiance heavenlike

Makes my mind a mind of Light.

    I’ve been browsing on-line more than three hours as of late, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made just right content material as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before. “Dignity is not negotiable. Dignity is the honor of the family.” by Vartan Gregorian.
