"Christ" is the resonance of pure Love emanating from our awakened Silence.
Jesus was a simple man without a theology or belief-system, who spontaneously acted from the radiance of his Heart. He didn't have a plan, or know what he was going to say a moment before he said it (Mat. 10:19). Yet in that moment, the living Silence spilled from his lips in words of fire. He was immersed and surrendered in the ocean of Love.
For Christ, the radical act is simply to be present; the revolution is to breathe. For when you are truly aligned with the Kingdom of God within you, every breath is the Holy Spirit.
Through the flowering of Jesus, Christ became a unique and personal fragrance that still permeates the earth. Ever so human, like you and me, ever so divine, like you and me, he is imperishable all-pervading Friendship.
Christos, Buddha, Shiva - it matters not what name you use. The resonance of unbounded Being through a finite form is the human work we are all about. Yet we bow to those who have fully embodied this play of divine love, for they show us who we really are. We bow in freedom.
"Christos" means "Anointed One." First, we meet the Christos reflected in an other who inspires us: the master. Then we imbibe the breath of the master, and discover the Christos to be our very inhalation. You can breathe the same Spirit that Jesus breathed. Let Spirit-Breath nourish you with her sparkling sap. For she is the mother, the feminine aspect of God, and second person of the Trinity.
Finally, having realized the Christos as the master, then as the intimate life-breath that animates our body, we realize the Christos as our deepest Self. We come from the Son, through the Spirit, to the Godhead. And this first person of the Trinity, more intimate than the master, more intimate than our very breath, is the immoveable Being, the Self.
O seeker, the Holy Trinity is more real, and more intimate, than you have ever imagined. Forget theology and surrender to the Master, to the Breath, and to your Self. For they appear as three, but are a vibrant unity. The Master who awakens you, the gift of his awakening Breath, and the boundless Being who awakens, are all one.
