The title 'Christ' means Illumination. 'Annointed' is another description used, annointed with Illumination.
Implicit in Illumination is a, or the, process of becoming illuminated. In the Bible, the New Testament is an allegoric and symbolic depiction of this process of illumination. Jesus, the symbol for that new quality of mind called consciousness, the "Light of the World, begins to grow in intensity; the Light that reveals our particular impediments to acquiring Christ mind.
Out of the darkness/ignorance of the Bethehem cave of human mind the new light of the world appears which will irradiate, as it grows, the relative darkness of human quality mind. It grows by consuming human mind, transmuting the relative density of human mind into Christ mind analogous to a forest fire consuming the dense forest and causing it to become that by which it is being consumed because "Our God Is A Consuming Fire" (Hebrews 12:29.
At all points in this process we are confronted by our present quality consciousness that blocks/prevents our becoming inclusive of our next stage or quality of understanding.
In Eastern parlance this obstacle, our current quality mind that is blocking-preventing the transmutation of human into Christ quality mind, called in the East the ("clear, cold light of right reason"); that human quality mind which has to be evercome (which has to die daily I Cor.15:31) in order to proceed (so that old things can pass away and become new II Cor. 5:17)... allow us to forget those things which lie behind, reach out mentally and become inclusive of new quality consciousness, of those things which are before... Philippians 3:13, is called the Dweller on the Threshold.
Every religious expression has its symbols for this, usually an angel or demon etc., guarding an entrance or door leading to further illumination. This can be an angel of open-mindedness which allows us to enter the new area, or the demon of a closed mind which prevents entrance into the new.
Any person, any religion, all crystallised dogmatic or doctrinal thought, any spiritual organisation by whatever name that promotes closed mindedness; that prevents our overcoming our Dweller; that lays claim to having all necessary truth; that there is nothing else to learn; just step in the steps they tell you to step in; that any urge you have to learn anything more is Satan tempting you, luring you away from God is, no matter how sincere, the true Anti-Progress...Anti-Illumination...Anti-Christ.

Yet, things are as they are

- and whenever it appears that things are not what they are, always remember that things are as they are.
But are things as they are

What things are depends upon quality of perception. Lest we forget...Copernicus??
E=mc2. I'm old enough to remember "you're trying to tell me rocks ain't solid, just matter at it lowest frequency... you must be crazy. What the hell is matter and what the hell does frequency mean? You people better read your Bible."

Yes, they are, always

Just because we think they are not, does not mean they are not - incredulousness doesn't change (the nature of) things. The only thing that chances is us - nature itself, is as it is.
Before we discovered and, sort of, understood classical and quantum mechanics, they were what they were, ever since "time" began, and they still are what they are and will remain what they are, regardless.

it's the perception of the reality that's wrong. The reality was always exactly that...reality.

But what is reality?
We, given the state of the humn brain, have three options:
What is reality?
|June 18 2008, 9:11 AM |
Since, if all knowledge of every kind were put into the head of one person, that person wouldn't have a clue as to what reality is, it would be laughable for me to say I know. So, unless someone needs a good laugh, I won't even try to define it. Just as there's no such thing as a woman being a "little" pregnant, there is no "little" or partial reality.
Are there perhaps temporary realities? (contradictory as hell, ain't it?) There is the reality that an acorsn becomes an Oak, begging the question what is an oak; is it a manifestation of the electric frequency called Earth; a manifestation our limited perception has caused us to identify as a tree that an acorn becomes an oak? Then there is the most complicated seed of all, the human. And on we could go naming seeds and their realities which are not realities at all; nothing more than indicative of our current, entrained, collective consciousness.
But right now, at my present point in evolution, I'm thinking thare is no ultimate reality. As you and others know, we are temporary condensations of a Cosmos that is involved in the incessant activity of birth (manifestation), life (existence) death and reabsorbtion back into our space frequency only to be reborn (reincarnated), re-manifested; exist, are reabsorbed by space in the cosmic process the old Hindus called the Cosmic Dance Of Shiva and modern Astronomy is calling the "Intrinsically dynamic Universe."
Sagan said they watch, just in that part of Cosmos they can observe, 100 new solar systems form every second. Our little brains can't think in these term too long without tripping our breaker, but try to see what Sagan said happening without end. The God of Christianity who ignored all of this, set up shop on one temporary condensation and created intelligent life forms on ours alone quickly becomes more than a bit ludicrous.
Solar systems, galaxies, universes come and go, blending, combining, becoming in their unmanifested space frequency, a homogeneous whole. This mix re-manifests...manifests in our case as planet Earth which is made up of the homogeneous mix of who knows how many other universes having been reabsorbed. Reality, or so it seems to me, implies finality. Who knows, who will say what this homogeneous mix we are condensed from, contains. We are that part of this planetary mix plus what Caused this mix to manifest, a mix which got up and walked. How much matter of how many Universes walks and thinks with us as we speak?
Is there finality in Cosmos? Apparently not. Is there finality to forms of manifestation? It appears so... finality to the form frequency of densified manifestation. Should our meditations be on the manifestation, or on that which is the Cause of manifestation?
If I understand correctly (and I will be the last to be surprised to find that I don't), if one's mind identifies with objectivity (in our case Earth) one is manifesting that quality of mind called human. If one's mind is beginning to identify with the Cause of Earth and its purpose in the galactic scheme, one has acquired what Christianity calls Christ mind. If one does not know Earths Purpose and its relation to the galactic scheme, one has not acquired Christ mind. If one identifies with Cosmos, with Cosmic process, sees no finality-reality, one has, as the Bible puts it, ascended to the Father...identification with Cosmic Mind...Space...God...Source. The Prodigal Son has returned to the Father's Home.
So, once again, what is reality? Beats the hell out of me.

How can a dummy who can't even spell 'acorn' be expected to define reality.
