If you were to visit the Venezuelan Capitol in Caracas and later you would share your thoughts with me, it would be something like this:
If you were on the north side of the Capitol, you would say it has many statues holding the ceiling.
If you were on the south side, you would say there are no statues but only Greek walls.
If you were on the surrounding areas only, you would say it is all about gardens, not Green walls or statues.
Whoever visited the Capitol has seen it from different standpoints.
The same goes for when we attempt to know about the Christ as the second pillar of this teaching. This is the basis for a person to have a happier life and raise consciousness level. If I ask what the Christ is you will probably answer: He is the son of God, the one we see on the cross, or He is the one we have inside. There are different opinions and we wonder why. Simply, we have all approached to this knowledge from different ways, but who is "THE CHRIST"? Let's discuss this knowledge from three different standpoints as in the Capitol example. First, there is a historic Christ, then an Inner Christ, and third, there is a Cosmic Christ.
Who was the historic Christ? The historic Christ was a man, son of Joseph and Mary, who became a Master. He lived and died in Galilee. Everybody knows about him and he was known as the one who was "crucified".
Let’s take the word Christ to gain more knowledge on this matter. This word comes from the second declination of the Latin words Cristus Cristi, which means anointed, full of grace. It generally referred to those people who were anointed with sacred oil. We can infer that the word CHRIST has nothing to do with a man who was crucified. Although it has been said that the word CHRIST came from the word crucified, this is not true. Christ is an anointed being full of grace.
God is the King and because we are his children, we are all princess and princesses. A prince is a person anointed with something very special, he is an anointed Christ. Each one of us is a perfect son of God. Remember what Jesus said, “You are Gods.” And in the bible, in the book of Genesis, it reads: ”So God created man in his own image and after His likeness”. We are all Gods. Now, do you think that you are God when you are furious and angry? What happens there? God is deep within your own self. He is the little seed you are. This little seed is within your heart and it is truly the son of God. We all carry him in our heart. It is what religions have called the breath of the Holy Spirit, the Divinity in men, the Higher Being, or the Inner Being. This is the Inner Christ, God inside of you, with all the ointments and the blessings of God himself. Every human being has the Inner Christ, whether they are good or bad, whether they hold to a religion or not. All human beings have the spark of God in their hearts and it is called the Inner Christ.
But what is the relationship between this Christ and Jesus? Not everyone knows what you are learning right now. Today, like in the past, there is a number of people who ignore these teachings. Two thousand years ago, a person called Jesus embodied and fully manifested his Inner Christ. He became that Being that we all hold in our hearts. He decided to act as a direct channel of that inner Christ and set him free so It could manifest itself.
We all have this Inner Christ like Jesus, but why is not fully manifested? Why are we not like Jesus? Remember that Jesus said: ”You will do these things and even greater. If you tell this mountain to move and go to the sea, this mountain will obey”. Now, why can you not do it? Because you were never told you could... that is why. Your personality, with all its flaws, hatred and malice, has denied God's Wisdom and made your Inner Christ withdraw into a steel capsule.
By contrast, when you start thinking positive and learn of your Inner Christ, the steel capsule starts to break up and the Inner Christ starts to manifest itself. So, what do you think, see and feel when God is inside of you? It is very easy. When the supreme stream of energy of your Higher Self descends upon your physical body, a conduit called the Silver Cord is formed. This cord penetrates through your head between the parietal and the occipital bones, and when it reaches your heart, it explodes in a three-fold flame surrounded by an immense sun-like light. This three-fold flame holds the three primary aspects of God: Will, Wisdom and Love. In church you have seen how God is symbolized as the Eternal Father. A triangle is drawn and its three corners symbolize: Will, Wisdom and Love; Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Why are these three aspects and not others? Because a universe cannot exist if there is no Will, Love and Wisdom altogether. If any of these three elements are missing, the universe could not hold on to existence either. Thus, God works with these three aspects together. We all dependen on them. Every one of us has God inside with these three aspects. You cannot tell anyone that you do not know something because God inside of you knows it. When you say you don't know, you are slaming the door in God's face. Whenever you say "I can't", you are denying the Christ inside of you the opportunity to manifest itself. He can give you all the Wisdom, the Will and the power of God itself.
Your Christ is God going with you everywhere. He has been called The Guardian Angel by many religions. Every human being carries this heart of light with the threefold flame. At first, they are small, but they can grow to the size of the body. A living Golden Flame is the Wisdom of God. All the Illumination and the Knowledge of God is inside of you for you to use. For instance, when your body is fighting an infection, the white blood cells fight it for you and you hare healed. The digesting process is done thanks to the intelligence present in your body, which is the Golden Ray of your threefold flame.
You are also going to find within your heart the strength, the power and the faith of God, which is the Blue Flame within your heart. You should never say you lack faith, because the greatest faith in the world dwells within your heart.
The Pink Flame is all your Divine Love within your heart. You cannot hate or reject people, because you have the love of God. Moreover, this Inner Christ with its threefold flame is within everyone. How can you hate a person when you and that person both hold the same God in your hearts. The bottom line is that the same divine energy is the one flowing through flowers, trees and all all that exist. Everything in this universe has the three aspects of God. But if we open any heart, the threefold flame cannot be seen, you might say. And that is true. However, I am talking about the spiritual heart. This truth has been known through all the ages and by all esoteric schools. Now it is time for all people to become aware of the Inner Christ. When Jesus lived in Jerusalem, he made everything using the power of the Inner Christ. He said “I Am the Path, the Truth and the Life”.
Now, we are going to talk about the Cosmic Christ. The sum of all the Christs or Divine sparks are contained in the Cosmic Christ. He is a real Being, tangible and visible, known as VISHNU. Actually, Koot Hoomi is the planetary Christ for Earth. Prior to him, the planetary Christ was Maitreya, known by the Christians as Jesus. He worked through Jesus to manifest the synthesis of all that is christic in the universe. Don't think for a second that Christ lives in the Catholic Church only or with those who announce his coming. He lives within all religions around the world. When he comes, he will not come to a few ones, he will come and open his arms to everyone. Why? Because everyone has a part of him wihint his heart.
To keep it simple, we could summerize saying that the Cosmic Christ worked through Jesus’ body and blood. When Jesus blood reached the ground, each drop had the Christ essence. Each one of us carries a drop of this blood within our hearts.
The greatest gift you can offer is to constantly bless that Inner Christ in others. You can call upon the Inner Christ for everything you need, when you do not understand something, when you lack love, when something is missing,etc. Think that it is God inside of you with all his power. Once someone asked Jesus where Heaven was, he replied: “Be careful, it is much closer to you than your own feet”. It is within your heart, you should look for it there. The festival of Asala has been celebrated throughout the ages on the first full moon of June. It is the festival of the Christ. This day, the Christic forces in nature are more alive than any other day of the year. Years ago, Lord Maitreya gave a prayer on the full moon of June called The Great Invocation, it is a universal prayer that can be used daily.
