Jesus said: “They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world .. that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them ; that they may be one. I in them and thou in me, that they made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them as thou hast loved me”. John 17-16 , 21-23 KJV
The following are some beautiful words by sufi mystic Hazrat Inayat Khan discussing Christ consciousness.
“The Christ spirit cannot be explained in words. The omnipresent intelligence, which is in the rock, in the tree, and in the animal, shows its gradual unfoldment in man. This is a fact accepted by both science and metaphysics. The intelligence shows its culmination in the complete development of human personality, such as the personality, which was recognized in Jesus Christ by his followers. The followers of Buddha recognized the same unfoldment of the object of creation in Gautama Buddha, and the Hindus saw the same in Shri Krishna. Those who followed Moses recognized it in him too, and they have maintained their belief for thousands of years; the same culmination of the all-pervading intelligence was recognized in Muhammad by his followers. As to the belief that Christ gave his life to save the world, it explains the real meaning of sacrifice: that no man in this world going towards the goal will escape from the test to which life will put him. And that test is sacrifice. At every step towards the final goal, the attainment, a greater and greater sacrifice will be demanded of him, until he arrives at a point where there is nothing, whether body, mind, action, thought, or feeling, that he keeps back from sacrifice for others. It is by this that man proves his realization of divine truth. In short, the Christ-ideal is the picture of the perfect man; and the explanation of what the perfect man is and what are his possibilities can be seen in the verse of the Bible, ‘Be ye perfect even as your Father in heaven is perfect. The belief in Christ is in the Church, the book of Christ is with the clergy, the spirit of Christ is in the illuminated soul.The spirit of Christ can be traced in Christ’s own words where he said, ‘I am Alpha and Omega,’ I am first and last. By this he meant, ‘I was before Jesus was born, and I shall be after Jesus has gone.” … (Hazrat Inayat Khan)
Now lets look at a November 7, 1980 Satsang with Sri Nisargadatta Maharaja to see Jesus’s truth explained in another way in another time.
Questioner: Consciousness is time-bound, so whatever I am, is it also timebound, or is there not something which is eternal?
Maharaj: So long as the body is there you are this consciousness, but once the body and the consciousness go you are that original state upon which all this has come as a temporary state. Your original state is changeless and permanent.
The difficulty comes because you are all searching for That, forgetting that That is what you are. You, as the subject, are seeking you as an object. You are what you are seeking.
The moment there is a pose, there is fear. Anyone who has assumed the pose of a seeker will be bound to follow the traditional practices of a seeker, and the limitations.
What is the purpose of all that I am saying? It is a direct attack on identification with the body-mind. So long as that identification is there my direct attacks will continue.
Once dis-identification with the body-mind takes place, Brahman will come with folded hands to your feet.
