“Beloved, accept now that you are Christ. Begin to walk on Earth as gods, loving everything, always in love.” Choose Only Love bk.2, 21:II
When we walk the world loving everything, always in love, then indeed we are Christ. And there is something further: “Begin to walk on Earth as gods.”
This is heady stuff. But we will be misinterpreting if we let these words be an appeal to our ego. These words are not meant in such a fashion. Our little personalities often misconstrue.
When we are living in love, everything looks different—and this includes us. We truly are being a Christ when we walk in love upon the face of this earth.
To do so will make such a difference. We won’t be so much changed as just living more fully. Our minds will have slowed down, and cleared, and we will be happier. Yet Christ-consciousness is not so much a matter of a changed mind as it is of a changed outlook, though Jesus says elsewhere (in The Way of Mastery) that if our scientists knew what to look for in the brain, they would have found it.
Do we have to have walked the whole pathway back to God in order to be considered a Christ? No, because being a Christ is our inheritance, what we are meant to step into. We don’t have to be perfect in order to reach this place. It is our joint certainty that all is well. It is our renewed hope for a better life.
And the only way that we can have a better life is to turn ever more completely to expressions of love in everyday life.
