Christ Consciousness – Cosmic Self
“Christ means the Universal Principle of divine Son[Daughter]ship — the generic human, the Divine Pattern, the ideal toward which humanity evolves, the apex of individual evolution, the conscious union of the person with God.
“Christ means that mentality which recognizes the Law and uses it for constructive purposes only. There is no one particular person predestined to become the Christ. We must understand the Christ is not a person, but a Principle. Each partakes of the Christ nature, to the degree that the Christ is revealed through her, and to that degree she becomes the Christ. To practice the Presence of God is to awaken within us the Christ Consciousness. Christ is God in the soul of every human being.
“Our whole theory is that every person individualizes God. … that which is the Cosmic Self now manifesting as the individual self. The two selves are one. Cosmic Consciousness is not a mystery, it is the Self-Knowingness of God through us. … The greater the consciousness of God, the more complete must be the realization of the True Self – the Divine Reality.
“There is something about you and me that is cosmic, universal, that stretches over time and space; let us learn to think better of ourselves. Life is an eternal givingness, the offering of the cosmic Self to the joy of Its own fulfillment. You are I are part of this joy and we find fulfillment only as this joy passes through us to others. Everything moves in circles. We short-circuit our own good when we refuse to pass it on.”
Excerpts from Dr Ernest Holmes’ writings
Our book of the month You Are the Universe by Deepak Chopra and Menas Kafatos takes us even deeper into our exploration of the Christ Consciousness – Cosmic Self.
BOOK OF THE MONTH
You Are The Universe by Deepak Chopra and Menas Kafatos
Deepak Chopra joins forces with leading physicist Menas Kafatos to explore some of the most important and baffling questions about our place in the world.
You Are the Universe literally means what it says – each of us is a co-creator of reality extending to the vastest reaches of time and space. This seemingly impossible proposition follows from the current state of science, where outside the public eye, some key mysteries cannot be solved, even though they are the very issues that define reality itself. “The shift into a new paradigm is happening,” the authors write. What these two great minds offer is a bold, new understanding of who we are and how we can transform the world for the better while reaching our greatest potential.
