I have never felt that I had properly concluded my thoughts on the Christ Mind! In my opinion ~ this first portion of the Book of St. John (KJV)
basically says it all! Should I add anything more than what I have written ~ I would only be repeating what I have said so many times. So I will keep my
'comments' as brief as possible.
My concluding chapter:
Only through faith in the realization that God is the "I" within us, can we attain the Christ Mind ~ the consciousness in which Jesus functioned! Then we too can say that we are the light of the World. Did He not tell us in His 'Sermon on the Mount' that we too were the Light of the World? (Mat.5-14) Was not this sermon meant for all humanity? In First John 4;17, we read ~ Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment ~ 'because as He is ~ so are we in this World'! Our names are just our names ~ our physical identity! The Spirit of God ~ is the "I" within each and every one of us ~ thus the necessity of the Spiritual Rebirth ~ the dying to 'self' ~ (the illusion in which virtually the whole of humanity functions!) through faith in the realization, that God is the "I" within us! We were meant to walk as Christs! (To walk As God ~ the Father ~ is to walk as Christs!).
God gave being to Himself as a 'man', so that He could 'speak' as a 'man'. He made us in His image and likeness ~ by 'becoming' us ~ by 'being' us! But the man named 'Adam', didn't know this! So he functioned as the 'man' ~ (as the 'human being') he believed himself to be. This was why God the Father 'came' some 2100 years ago (as the 'babe' named 'Jesus'!) to demonstrate to humanity that man and God are ONE. He suffered the agony of death on the cross in order to save us from our 'selves'! Thus the necessity of the Spiritual Rebirth! We must be 'born again'! (We must acknowledge Him (the Father) as our reality!) We (male or female) embody the capacity to partake in Gods Eternal Reality! We embody the capacity to become aware of being 'Spiritual beings' ~ Gods in every sense of the word! And this 'renewing of our minds' sets in motion our transfiguration ~ enabling us to ascend into the heavens as living Spiritual beings ~ as did they who were known as Enoch, Elijah and Jesus of Nazareth!. We are 'nothing' of ourselves. The "I" within each of us ~ is the Light of the World. We are ALL One ~ and the 'Spirit of God' ~ the LIGHT OF THE WORLD ~ is that One!
We read in the first chapter of The Gospel According To St. John (KJV).
In the beginning, was the word and the word was with God, and the word was God The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him, and without Him ~ was not anything made that was made. In Him was Life ~ and the Life, was the light of men And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. The same came for a witness ~ to bear witness of the Light, that all men through Him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. That was the true Light, which lighteth every 'man' that cometh into the World! He was in the World, and the World was made by Him, and the World knew Him not. He came unto His own, and His own received Him not. But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God ~ even to them that believe on His name. Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God! And the word was made flesh, and dwelt among us (and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
