6. What is the Christ?

Section 6. What is the Christ?

Christ is God’s Son as He created Him. He is the Self we share, uniting us with one another, and with God as well. He is the Thought which still abides within the Mind that is His Source. He has not left His holy home, nor lost the innocence in which He was created. He abides unchanged forever in the Mind of God.

Christ is the link that keeps you one with God, and guarantees that separation is no more than an illusion of despair, for hope forever will abide in Him. Your mind is part of His, and His of yours. He is the part in which God’s Answer lies; where all decisions are already made, and dreams are over. He remains untouched by anything the body’s eyes perceive. For though in Him His Father placed the means for your salvation, yet does He remain the Self Who, like His Father, knows no sin.

Home of the Holy Spirit, and at home in God alone, does Christ remain at peace within the Heaven of your holy mind. This is the only part of you that has reality in truth. The rest is dreams. Yet will these dreams be given unto Christ, to fade before His glory and reveal your holy Self, the Christ, to you at last.

The Holy Spirit reaches from the Christ in you to all your dreams, and bids them come to Him, to be translated into truth. He will exchange them for the final dream which God appointed as the end of dreams. For when forgiveness rests upon the world and peace has come to every Son of God, what could there be to keep things separate, for what remains to see except Christ’s face?

And how long will this holy face be seen, when it is but the symbol that the time for learning now is over, and the goal of the Atonement has been reached at last? So therefore let us seek to find Christ’s face and look on nothing else. As we behold His glory, will we know we have no need of learning or perception or of time, or anything except the holy Self, the Christ Whom God created as His Son.

“Christ is God’s Son as He created Him. 2 He is the Self we share, uniting us with one another, and with God as well. 3 He is the Thought which still abides within the Mind that is His Source.” 

We are the Christ; it is the only thing that is true about us. Everything else is illusion. We are not each one a separate Christ, we are the Christ as one. In each of us is the Christ Mind and as we learn to see only that in each other, we will see that we are united and one with God. As this occurs with more frequency, the mind will awaken and we will have completed the cycle, returning our attention to paradise where we will abide for a while again before letting that illusion go as well.

Regina’s Tips

Christ and God’s Son are synonymous, and they both point to what many people call consciousness.

It’s important to remember that terms are symbols, and because they are only symbols, terms are not used consistently. Because terms are used differently at different times, we need to reach an understanding that is beyond terms.

Let me paint a simplistic picture that will help us understand Christ-consciousness.

At the highest level of truth, the source exists. The source is a mystery, often represented by darkness. It is unmanifest life teeming with potential.

Out of this potential, consciousness arises. Consciousness is awareness, but it is more than that. It is like a canvas that potentialities can be painted on. It is also the divine mechanism, or paint brush, that enables creation. Through its beingness, ongoing creation happens. Without consciousness, nothing else could be.

This is Christ. It is what we are beyond our experience of human. The humans that we appear to be are temporary appearances in the consciousness that we are.

Past Entry

Christ is the sum of all that God created and we are all part of Christ. Christ is untouched by anything seen in the world and continues as was created forever without interruption of any kind. Christ is the link that keeps us connected to God. Salvation lies within Christ.

I love this sentence: “Home of the Holy Spirit, and at home in God alone, does Christ remain at peace within the Heaven of your holy mind.” My mind is holy, and in its holiness is Heaven. When I do not feel like I am in Heaven, I am not in my real mind. But my real mind remains untouched by my despairing dreams, safe from my illusions.

The thought that comes to me and comforts and reassures me is that since Christ remains at peace within my mind, peace is always available to me. No matter what chaotic story I may be telling myself, peace is still accessible to me because it has gone nowhere.

Jesus seems to be using Christ and Holy Spirit interchangeably. And since I am part of Christ, I am also part of the Holy Spirit and we are all part of God. There is no separation. I try to envision this and my mind, which is still concrete in its thinking, and I cannot.

I do see why it is that Christ vision is our goal. It is through Christ vision that we see the end of dreams and a world at peace. For the longest time, I felt this was an impossible goal because I could not do it. Now I understand that my desire to end dreams makes it possible for the Holy Spirit to translate them into truth for me. In my willingness to awaken, the dream is ending, slowly at first but more quickly now, because as I experience the peace of God what else could I want?

Is it possible to live as Christ even here? I think it is. As I watch the mind for thoughts of separation; perception, projection, and time, and I become willing to bring those thoughts before the Holy Spirit to be reinterpreted, I move closer and closer to that awakened state. Truly, that is all I am doing. I am noticing what is not Christ and choosing not to believe it. I do this through the Holy Spirit in my Christ Mind because I cannot look to a dream to interpret itself. In surprise, I see how simple is salvation.
