When I first heard that man was God embodied, I thought it was the most ridiculous thing I had ever heard. A few months later I realized that this was indeed the Truth, so I began to search for any thing I could find that would throw some light on this subject. I went to meditation groups, to New Age groups and to wherever I thought I might find verification. I read Goldsmith, Holmes, Spalding, MacDonald Bayne, and a dozen others, but none fully satisfied me. I saw that man was indeed God embodied, and that we of ourselves could have no being at all. There had to be more to it than what I was finding in the written works of others. To help myself understand, I began to write. I had written about 140 pages, all with pen and pencil, from every conceivable perspective I could think of. I was encouraged to put these short essays into a book, so I did so, and entitled my booklet Points of Light. To give you an idea that it takes time for ideas to 'germinate' in your mind. A month or two after I had produced this booklet, one day a 'light' came on, and I thought, this is the Christ Mind!
This revelation pushed me to continue writing. Since then I must have written three or four hundred pages. A terrible amount of repetition. I published Points of Light, in 1993. Since then, I changed the title to The Christ Mind. Along the way I published an edition entitled I am that I am. The early chapters, I have tried to improve upon, but basically my present book has been built upon my initial understanding.
I gave a copy of my first booklet to an old friend. A pastor I had a great deal of respect for. We were to discuss what I had written after he had read it, but unfortunately he passed away before we could get together. His wife found the copy about three months after his death, and gave it to me. I wanted to see what his comments might be. The first thing I found was "Bob thinks he's God, ha, ha, ha." Almost the same thing I said when I first heard it also. As soon as I read that, I knew it had gone 'right over his head' You see, it was not 'Bob', who thought he was God, it was God, who had 'been programmed' to believe that He was Bob. It is not an easy thing to see. To say that 'Bob' thought he was God, is to give 'being' to 'Bob', when in fact the only thing that has being is Godů the Source. Jesus' disciples never saw it either. "Show us this Father fellow you keep talking about," Phillip said the night before His crucifixion, and perhaps then we will believe you. Nor did the religious of the day, nor has the Churches of the World seen it to this day. Manů is God embodiedů the Father embodied! There is no one else!
As time goes by, I seem to be able to write about our relationship to God, with more and more clarity. With each email I write, and with each essay I write, I seem to make it more understandable. It would be repetitious for me to go through it all again, but just today, I realized, that in writing the Christ Mind, plus subsequent essays, I have given the World the message for which they crucified the 'Christ' some 2000 years ago! No one could see it then, but they can now! As I thought about this, I remembered the story about Jesus' baptism, where the heavens opened unto Him, and the Spirit of God, was seen descending like a dove, and lighting upon Him, and a voice from heaven saying, 'This is my beloved son, in whom I am well pleased."
