Christ is Not a Given Name
“Christ” is not the last name of the rabble rousing troublemaker from Nazareth named Jesus. The word “Christ” was a spiritual title and is not a given name. The historical Jesus (if he did in fact exist) was “Christed” or anointed by spirit into spiritual consciousness that transcended his material existence. Becoming a Christ by choosing Christ Consciousness means to practice the same application of love that Jesus The Christ did and it is possible for me to actually practice this Consciousness for whole minutes at a time. Even Jesus himself was not always engaged in the practice of “Christ” Consciousness. Sometimes Jesus was engaged in his personhood as Jesus the temple brawler. Jesus the person had to eat and bleed but Jesus The Christ was unaffected by His death by torture because His Christhood was not a physical manifestation.
From Wikipedia: The word Christ was a title or office (“the Christ”), not a given name. Christians of the time designated Jesus as “the Christ” because they believed him to be the Messiah, whose arrival is prophesied in the Hebrew Bible and Old Testament. In postbiblical usage, Christ became viewed as a name—one part of “Jesus Christ”.
Becoming A Sun
Last Sunday I decided to become An Emissary of Divine Light in my community. I am an emissary of spiritual consciousness who has been inspired by the Emissaries of Divine Light. The EDL current website is focused on the book: Becoming A Sun: Emotional & Spiritual Intelligence for a Happy, Fulfilling Life. I also found a book on spiritual attunement written by Jaclyn Stein Henderson, the woman who introduced me to the Emissaries of Divine Light in 1991. So I decided to write this blog titled: Becoming A Christ.
Becoming A Christ
The simple theology behind Christ Consciousness is very easy to learn but extremely difficult to practice. The main practice is to love your enemy as you love yourself and you immediately become a Child of God. Once I have performed this difficult practice of loving my enemy the rest becomes easy. If I can love my enemy then I can easily love God with all my heart, mind, body & soul and give my alms in secret so that I do not forfeit God’s Grace. Not praying in public or wearing special religious garments is easy for me because my personal experience has been that hypocrites can easily practice costume changes.
Loving Your Enemy Is So Difficult That God Made The Rewards of This Practice Infinite
Loving the repugnant anti-social parasites in my community is so difficult for me that when I perform the miracle of forgiving the assholes I am instantly rewarded. Life becomes more energized, exciting and even my food tastes better! When I lighten-up my heavy heart and have compassion for the infantile neurotics in the laundry room I am instantly healed myself.
Have you ever really loved your enemy as you would love yourself? Try it and you will experience God. I always thought that loving my enemy was something I would do later on in life. Like maybe I will love and pray for my enemy when I am older. Now I am older. For the past few years I have been loving everyone who triggers my negative emotions and now it is finally becoming a daily practice. The secret is to find my emotional triggers and then inwardly cringe with embarrassment at my infantile neurosis. When I see myself in other people’s bad behavior I am filled with compassion and I love the adult children in my daycare world as I would love myself.
Pray and Grow
Praying and meditating have been a part of my daily practice for years and now forgiving my negative people is becoming a daily miracle. Negative people give me something to be grateful for. The religious hypocrites in my community give me something to be grateful for and I love them for their blatant fakery. I love assholes because they make me look good.
