I am that I am
The Christ Mind
is the seed, (the idea), that will lead us into the ‘Kingdom of God’... into a consciousness of Oneness... into the ‘Christ Mind’! This seemingly egotistical idea sets in motion the real Spiritual Rebirth. By no other means can we attain the Christ Mind. (By no other means can we enter the Kingdom of God.)
You are much more than the 'person' that you now believe yourself to be. You are an individual manifestation of God! You are to God... what a wave is to the ocean... what a branch is to the vine. You are just as much the presence of God, as a wave is the presence of the ocean or as a branch is the presence of the vine. LITERALLY!
The entire book is dedicated to the promotion of the Allness of God, the Oneness of God, and to the nothingness of any other thing!
What we have failed to see is this: No "man" (no John or Jane Doe) has ever been "born"! Every John or Jane Doe that has ever existed on planet Earth, has been "created"… but not by God! God made Man in His image and likeness. But… God did not create the person we believe ourselves to be. OUR PARENTS CREATED THE PERSON WE BELIEVE OURSELVES TO BE WHEN THEY NAMED US AT OUR BIRTH! Every "human" child that has ever been born, is God in the infant stage of development. In ignorance of this, our parents named us and then proceeded to mold us in "their" image and likeness.
Man… is the only organism on the Planet in which and through which the Source (God) can function in the world of form AS THE SOURCE…AS GOD. No living "thing" has any being apart from or other than the Source, and that includes every "human organism" that has ever been born .The Source does not give being to any "thing" or to anyone apart from or other than itself. Only the Source has being!
Even though the Bible tells us that God made man in His image and likeness… few seemingly believe this. Why? Because we have failed to find the Key that enables us to realize that we are the Source embodied... God embodied. We have failed to realize what manner of being we are! The "Source" is the reality of every man on Earth. Man and God are One. One is the Universal Spirit... the other is the Universal Spirit individualized!
The "Kingdom of God"…is a state of mind. A state of KNOWING that GOD... IS THE I AM WITHIN US! The Kingdom of God is synonymous with God consciousness!
The Key that enables us to function AS THE SOURCE, is the realization that God (the Father) is the I AM WITHIN US, and the belief that we are the person we have been programmed to believe ourselves to be, is what keeps us from attaining this realization. The person we believe ourselves to be is but the illusion in which we function. Thus the necessity of the Spiritual Rebirth, but not through the concept of the Spiritual Rebirth as promoted by the Evangelical Religions of the World. Through their concept, it is impossible for us to realize our relationship to our Source, thereby making it impossible for us to attain a consciousness of Oneness!
" I and my Father are One".... is the Key, the idea, that enables us to function As the Source… As God! Only in this realization can we "enter" the "Kingdom of God"... only in this realization can we attain a consciousness of Oneness. God is the Vine... 'He'... is also the branch! 'He' is the I AM, THAT I AM! Understanding the significance of the proclamation " I AND MY FATHER ARE ONE" initiates the real Spiritual Rebirth, without which we cannot attain a consciousness of Oneness... the CHRIST MIND.
What is the 'Christ Mind' ... it is the consciousness (the mind) in which Jesus
functioned ... in which he 'walked'. "He that hath seen me ... hath seen the Father" ... "I and
my father are one," he said. He knew that he and God ... 'his source', were One... One and
the same. So ... HE 'WALKED' AS GOD ... in God consciousness. He dwelt in the 'Kingdom'
of God... in the consciousness of being God! In Phillipians 2:5, the apostle Paul said, "let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus." In Mathew 6:33 Jesus said, "seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you." He was not talking about a place ... he was
talking about a State of Mind! The 'kingdom of God' ... IS A STATE OF MIND ... the CHRIST
MIND! We have been told that it is within us (the kingdom of God), but we have never been
told that it is a state of mind ... a state of KNOWING that the ' I ' within each of us is the
Father! We have never been told that the ' I ' within us that says I am Robert, I am Richard, I
am Henry, I am Marie, I am Helen, I am Shirley, etc., etc. is the same ' I ' that said, "I and
my Father are one" some two thousand years ago. Each of us is the presence of God! God
is the Life... the reality of each of us. "I am the Lord and there is none else." (Isaiah 45 : 6)
We have failed to realize our relationship to each other ... to our Source ... to God. When we realize that each of us is the Source manifesting... we begin to take upon ourselves the likeness of our Source. That likeness, is the CHRIST. To function in that consciousness... AS THE SOURCE... is to function in the Christ Mind! The Christ Mind... is but the Universal Mind (The Divine Mind) personified.
It is the purpose of this website to reveal and remove the illusion that has caused us to believe we are different from each other just because we 'appear' to be different. God is our reality ... our true identity. The 'person' we believe ourself to be... is but the illusion in which we live.
This opening page and the selected essays in the book "The Christ Mind" contain everything necessary to take you from your present state of mind, into the "Christ Mind".
Robert Clark has produced a fine treatment of the subject of oneness: the oneness of all things, and the inevitably logical conclusion that that one thing is God. The metaphysical concept that "God Is All There Is" is usually not well understood in metaphysical circles, but in this work Mr. Clark has brought irrefutable logic to bear in establishing this premise as an inescapable fact. In his chapter on Evolution he has approached the traditional dispute between Evolution and Creationism from a refeshingly different - and impeccably logical - point of view. This book is a thought provoking look at the fundamental problem of man's place in the reality that surrounds him."
