CHRIST MIND RAJA YOGA: AN INTRODUCTION FILTERING – THE REVEALED LIGHT TRANSMISSION

A Course in Miracles

Text

INTRODUCTION

 

1 This is a course in miracles. It is a required course. Only the time you take it is voluntary. Free will does not mean that you can establish the curriculum. It means only that you can elect what you want to take at a given time. The course does not aim at teaching the meaning of love, for that is beyond what can be taught. It does aim, however, at removing the blocks to the awareness of love’s presence, which is your natural inheritance. The opposite of love is fear, but what is all-encompassing can have no opposite.

 

2 This course can therefore be summed up very simply in this way:

 

Nothing real can be threatened.
Nothing unreal exists.

 

Herein lies the peace of God.

 

Commentary

 

Here we are told that A Course in Miracles is a required course. What does that mean? After reading other teachers’ thoughts on this idea, and meditating upon it, I believe what Jeshua (Jesus) is saying, is that the practice of giving and receiving miracles, or expressions of Love/extensions of Love with the intent to bless others is our calling and our duty or dharma in life. Miracles are the means to heal and bring about the “Atonement” or the correction for errors in our thinking, for correction of the primal guilt we feel is our burden, due to having collectively chosen to dream a special existence separate and alone from God and the Sonship of Christ Mindedness. We are all called to be miracle workers, to help create a new world, to bring Heaven to earth and the manifest universe. Knowing what the Course calls our ‘special function’ is required of us, if we are to bring liberation to the dream world.

 

 

A Course in Miracles is by no means the only path and the only curriculum. It is part of a universal curriculum. Revelation from Divinity has been ongoing since the inception of time and space and the manifestation of materiality that occurred as a result of that ‘tiny tick of time’, that micro-second, where we dreamed there was something more than God, a power greater than God which we thought we were especially entitled to. Allen Watson from The Circle of Atonement wrote a booklet called “Seeing the Bible Differently: How A Course in Miracles Views the Bible.” In it he talks about a concept that I first was introduced to by Sophian Gnostic Lineage holder Tau Malachi – that of progressive revelation.  What both men speak of is an ongoing process of Divinity speaking to mankind through inspiration and direct experience. What has happened, is that people through the progression of time have taken the Divine’s words and distorted them to fit their interpretations of what was being directly revealed. The aspect of revelation being ongoing, is a notion supported by the different covenants and the ‘canceling’ out of old agreements and notions of Atonement (for perceived sins against God – something that A Course in Miracles says is impossible). Jeshua Jesus came to reveal a new understanding of God as Father, an unconditional loving, compassionate presence that does not condemn.  Old notions of condemnation, vengeance, and retribution were meant to be dissolved in the life and teachings of Jeshua, but his followers who interpreted his teachings did what people from Old Testament times did as well – projected their guilt and fear onto God, thus justifying that we still had to appease an angry God, be forgiven for our wrongdoings in order to escape everlasting punishment. The old punishment and reward system has been overthrown by teachings of A Course in Miracles. Jeshua says that the Father cannot be both Loving and one who seeks to punish through vengeance.

 

 

So, as Allen Watson argues, the New Testament thus came as a succession to the Old Testament, and works such as A Course In Miracles, came as a succession and new understanding of earlier perceived understanding on the part of mankind, a kind of correction and clarification of teachings that didn’t totally discard previously held beliefs, but rather built upon them. Tau Malachi talks about different ‘gradations’ of consciousness, of what he calls “the light transmission” down through the history and succession of prophets and prophecy. Enlightened beings inspired by God, came to hear His/Her Voice more clearly as consciousness has evolved.

 

 

So, for those who have studied A Course in Miracles, many know that there are many references to the Bible made by the author of it, Jeshua Jesus himself (if you believe that). Many corrections to earlier teachings are made and clarification is brought to other obscure teachings that he argues were misinterpreted. A Course in Miracles is only one form of the universal curriculum. There are many spiritual paths that can lead us to the awareness of the Home we never in truth left at all. The “Course” is not meant to be another source of inspiration to become fundamentalist about. It teaches however, that by studying it, it will speed up the process of awakening or enlightenment. But it may not be for everyone. But it is a valid path that works, though it may take time to break down old thinking distortions and to heal perceptions in order to become a miracle worker and help build the “New Humanity”.

 

 

In the introduction Love is spoken of as being the only real thing there is. The Course emphatically teaches that there are only two emotions one can feel, Love or fear (fear being an absence of Love). Fear is not real, but Love is. Nothing real can be threatened so there is nothing to fear in truth. We cannot be harmed. Since the Divine is perfect Love, we have no reason to fear wrath or vengeance or final damnation of any kind for wrong actions or consciously chosen errors. We can atone and must learn to forgive, extending Love to all. Be at peace in knowing that nothing real can be threatened. You are Love and only Love. Mastery is fearlessness. Love is real. Everything else that stems from fear are just illusions.  Since only Love is real, peace is a guarantee. Though we may not seem to feel peace, know that you may be in fear and we can experience a shift into “True Perception” and “Knowing” that peace is our birth right. We were created from Love and therefore since that is what our Source is, so must we be as well.

CHRIST REALIZATION YOGA – DAY 44

DAY 44

 

Through Gnosis-Knowing and Divine Realization, contact with the Light of Father-Mother God, the Immortal Indwelling, is possible. This contact and awareness is the powerful Light Source that allows me to see the True Reality of Love right now.

 

 

Darkness tries to impede seeing. I cannot manufacture the Light of God Presence that shines bright in me now. I need but realize its Real Presence. The Christ is that Light. Through Radical Right Sight, I realize that miracles are made possible by connecting with the Radiance within my mind. If I isolate my self through wrong-minded thinking, I will not see the Light of Christ that I am at my center.
For there to be Radical Right Sight, I need to accept that Christ Light can flash across my mind in my third eye, the gateway to intuitive seeing and gnosis-knowing. That light is not outside of me. The ability to see is not found outside of me. The Christ is within. The Christ is who I was created to be. Christ Vision is always possible when I am in contact with the Light of Father-Mother God, the Supernal Parent-Source. The Love and Light that makes seeing possible will bring about the realization of my True Self as being in Communion with the Supernal Parent.
Today, I dedicate myself to quieting my mind and trying to reach within to my center, the Blessed Holy Spirit and Christ Mind. I am still trying to discipline my mind and till the soil to plant new seeds for Radical Right Sight. I am a Cosmic Mass unfolding at the altar of peace, joy, and happiness. With confidence, I invite other minds to join me at the Feast of Self-Remembering. Partaking of the Bread of Infinite Sustenance and the Ambrosial Wine-Light alive in the metaphysical spine. I allow Kundalini Christed Desire-Energy to awaken and rise on the altar of my metaphysical spine, the highway to Self and God-Realization.
I transform the density I think I am by offering it up freely to be blessed by the Light of the Supernal Parent Source within the crown chakra. The light descends through the other main energy vortexes and illumines every nadi, nerve channel and plexi, that creates a Supreme Feeling of Oneness with the All while inhabiting a body. This transfiguration allows me to see my True Nature as a Son/Daughter of God, whom I am in Union and Communion with the One God Mind appearing to be many.
I will contemplate today’s mantra with Love, recite it, chant it, live and breathe it at least three times, for a duration of three to five minutes, and longer only if no struggle or strain is induced in centering on this prayer for today.
Today, I leave behind old worn out and false thinking. I now believe and see differently than I did before. It is time to step outside and witness the folly of the egoic-ahamkar, by observing its meaningless, fearful ways. I will remind myself that I can and will escape darkness through the openness to Inner Transfiguration and recognition of the Christ Light Presence placed upon my inner altar. It’s Radiance is Knowable and capable of restoring me from my blindness caused by illusions. Therefore, I relax, and release the seeds of karma stored within my chakras, the seeds that are linked to darkness. I let the Christ Light shine away and magnetically bless all tamasic-darkening dense vibrations that limit my seeing. I choose wisely, in favor of the Transfiguration of the Inner Christ, the reflected nature of Father-Mother, Brahman Immortal. I see with metaphysical eyes, transcending sensory body-based seeing.

CHRIST REALIZATION YOGA – DAY 43

DAY 43
I am an extension of the Primal Cause, God Presence, Divine Mind, Immortal Brahman Spirit, the Indestructible Father-Mother Source. I am a creation of this Loving Source and I see only in alignment with this Presence and Mind.

 

Today, I come to the important Divine Realization that perception is not a quality of Divine God Presence. This Source exists in relation to Gnosis-Knowing-Knowledge. God Presence created the Cosmic Vibratory Memory of His/Her Self, the Holy Spirit to act as a neutral party, an arbitrator between perception and Gnosis-Knowledge. The Holy Spirit Mother Kundalini was placed in my mind at the very moment in time, I chose to separate from God Presence through separation-rebellion. This was the Atonement, the agent of undoing the ego-ahamkar thought system from which perception stems. The Atonement or conscious realization of At-One-Ment with God Presence, God Mind only seemed to happen because in reality, I never separated from the One Singular God Source.

 

 

My phone line to God through the medium of the Holy Spirit Mother Kundalini helps me transform my perceptions and brings me Gnosis-Knowledge, which brings True Sight, Christed Sight. I am the Christ. I am the Atman. I am the Awakened One. Gnosis-Knowledge is what I want to sustain me, to be in full Realization of my Divine Inborn Nature and Potential.
Though perception is not a function of God Presence, God Mind and is not real, in the plan for my moksha and kaivalya liberation, the dissolution of what never existed in truth, perception does have a purpose. Perception can be used for restoring my wholeness to my awareness. Though perception has no meaning, the Cosmic Vibratory Holy Spirit, the memory of God in my mind assigns it a value and meaning in close association to Divine Source’s. Radical Right Healed Perception is the way I as a Son or Daughter of God forgives my brother and sister, and thereby myself as well.

 

 

The reason I see only in alignment with Divine Presence is because I am One in Totality with my Source and am in alignment through the Christ Mind. Everything I do and think, I do so with and in the Mind of Divine Presence. Christ Vision is real, and it is actively real in me to the extent that vision and the Holy Spirit work together. Through this relationship I cannot see differently from Divine Mind Presence.

 

 

I commit to contemplating and centering on the mantra for today on three separate occasions for a duration of five-minutes, one early and one later in the day and the other when I am most receptive to hearing the Holy Spirit’s Voice. With eyes open I will scan my environment for a short period of time, applying the central idea for this day to what I seem to see. I might say:

 

 

“I am an extension of the Primal Cause, God Presence, Divine Mind, Immortal Brahman Spirit, the Indestructible Father-Mother Source. I am a creation of this Loving Source and I see this computer {or whatever object it is you are looking at} at One with Him/Her.”

 

 

This part of the contemplation should be short and done indiscriminately, neither deliberately including or excluding anything from consideration. I will apply this throughout the day to situations and events that may occur. For the second and longer phase, I will this time close my eyes, reciting today’s mantra again allowing relevant thought fluctuations to flow in to the mind in a personalized manner. For example:

 

 

“I see through the eyes of forgiveness. I see the world as blessed. The world can show me myself. I see my own thoughts, which are likened to God’s.”

 

 

I put aside all unconscious meanings that I have assigned to everything I perceive. I will step back and let the Holy Spirit show me Love and only Love. God is True Love. There is no seeing apart from this Love.

CHRIST REALIZATION YOGA – DAY 42

DAY 42
My deep abiding faith, belief, and power to Love comes from the Presence of God within. Christ Vision is the Father-Mother’s gift to my True Self and brings blessings of Joy and Peace.
Today’s idea is significant. It establishes a cause and effect relationship between what I perceive myself to be and have and what I can and will see. All power comes from the Infinite Dynamo of Energy and the Will of God, works through me, giving me sight. Helping me to see that wholeness is in all things. I of myself do nothing.

 

As my strength, I receive all that is necessary to extend Love and join with others. I have the power and ability to create beauty through wonder. This strength, power, and ability is freely streamed to me wherever I am or seem to be. Synchronous moments of being in a certain time and place in the space-time continuum with certain happenings and teachable moments are the result of Divine Presence’s gifts to me. I align with Real Christ Presence.

 

There is never a moment I am without the strength and God Power of Divine Presence-Divine Mind. I am always protected from all harm and cannot be threatened. If I am feeling vulnerable, I am refraining from seeing innocence and need to dissolve the karma created by image making and insane beliefs coming from my sick mind. If beliefs and karma could not be undone by God Power, I would be stuck in the mental asylum of the world filled with tamasic-darkening inertia, or hell-like, dense vibrations that lead to suffering and the perception of endless pain. I can make a beautiful film script and project a life of Love through Christ Vision because this gift is downloaded from the Infinite Spirit of God Presence and the Eternal, Immortal Mind.

 

I am not bound to the illusion of hell, nor to the images of hell that the Sonship and I have created of a place that does not exist, where suffering is ongoing and never ending, in the false notion of an underworld and afterlife that is terror-ridden and where neurotic guilt leads to unnerving suffering and agony, both mental and spiritual. This cannot be. Let me have True Vision of the Christ-Atman True Self, now. This Vision is inherent in my innermost being. It is my inheritance. I can and will see differently, because I am One in Yoga-Union with the Mind of God. Through the yoga of mental discrimination, I will see that I am either creating a subjective-relative blind state, dreaming of a devil ego-ahamkar through illusion or Seeing Truly that there can in reality be no duality, no suffering, and no pain. Only Bliss, Peace, and Joy are the gifts of clairvoyant clear-intuitive seeing.

 

I can and will escape the hell I made through trying to be independent and an individual, isolated mind, rebelling against Paradise Oneness. On my own, I can do nothing. With God Mind, God Presence, all things are possible and all misperceptions are corrected.

 

Two three-to-five-minute contemplative sittings are recommended for today, one of which should be soon after I wake and another done in stillness before I retire for sleep for the night.

 

I will begin my chanting by repeating the today’s maxim slowly, keeping the eyes open. Then I will close the doors of my body’s perceptual faculties and repeat the mantra affirmation even slower. I will empty my mind field of all thought vibrations except those which relate to the central affirmation for today.

 

I may contemplate the following:

 

“Christ Vision is possible because the Presence of God extends and emanates to me with Power and Truth now.”

 

Or

 

“The gifts of Divine God Presence has to be mine for the reason that my Source shares them with me. We are One. I am the Will of God Presence and have everything my Source does.”

 

I will step back and let thoughts simply flow. I will not strain to find thoughts that are pertinent, rather instead focus on saying these mantras slowly. Today, I affirm once again:

 

“My deep abiding faith, belief, and power to Love comes from the Presence of God within. Christ Vision is the Father-Mother’s gift to my True Self and brings blessings of Joy and Peace.”

CHRIST REALIZATION YOGA – DAY 41

DAY 41

 

The Father-Mother, Divine Guiding Light, Universal Spirit leads me and accompanies me on this journey, this exile, through the wilderness of the world, every step of the way, as I seek the Inner Promised Land of sweetness, milk and honey wholeness.

 

 

My intuitive fiery guide has never left me, even after I attempted to rebel and remove myself from the loving embrace of God Divine, the moment I tried to usurp His/Her power by choosing to be my own God apart and separate from that One Source of Inspiration.

 

 

I have no reason to feel lonely anymore. In truth, I have not been abandoned though I tried to abandon Father-Mother. This discernment and mental discrimination about what is truly real will allow me to triumph over all feelings of isolation, alienation, and abandonment. I have been depressed because of my decision to separate. It is the effect of that terrible choice. With depression comes all anxious, worrisome, helpless, miserable, fearful thoughts and all forms of perceived suffering. It is time to dissolve this accumulated karma, so I don’t have to continue to reap the negative effects of what I have sown.

 

 

In trying to be separate, I have concocted many supposed remedies for what I believe to be the insanity of the world I see. However, one thing I have not done is to call into question the reality of the perceived problem of there being a mental asylum ‘out there’ that I am subject to. There is no need to cure insanity and mental affliction, the effects of egoic-ahamkar separation because the perceived problem is not real. Today’s mental exercise has the ability to end all folly permanently. It is folly, though appearing to be quite concerning.

 

 

Within the nucleus of who I really am is the perfection of Oneness eager to shine forth as Great Rays of Truth out into the world I see through the manas-sense-mind eyes. This perfection and light will be the healing agent of all mental agony, perceived pain, the battle with fear, and any perception of loss. This truth-reality will align my mind with Reality, showing me that the suffering is not real and I cannot be harmed in any way as I am in Samadhi-Oneness, in God Communion and Yoga-Union with the Infinite.

 

 

My perfect wholeness is never taken from me, because its Divine Origin, the Source from which it came, is with me always, in all ways, everywhere I go. Endless Joy is my real experience making suffering impossible. My mind is still and at peace, because no matter where I appear to be, even stuck in the space-time continuum filled with forms and fearful images, Divinity is near and within, wherever I appear to be.

 

 

I must not believe this Truth, because it is hidden in the subconscious depths, behind the pits of despair and beneath the density of tamasic-darkening inertia, the matterward pull and afflicted thoughts which obscure me from seeing through Christed Vision. Today is about treading through the darkness, and shining a light out into the clouds that deter me from seeing and knowing that Divinity goes with me everywhere all of the time.

 

 

Today, I commit to one long practice period, first thing in the morning, when I arise, sitting in contemplation for three to five minutes closing the curtains of my body’s eyes from everything that appears to be eternal to my mind. First, I will repeat the idea slowly and make no concerted effort to think of anything at all. My goal is to simply turn away from the outside world, and close the door to my inner room, the Upper Room where Higher Awareness resides. I will pierce the veil to my inner tabernacle, penetrating the depths of my True Mind, ignoring thoughts that may try to invade and distract me.

 

 

At times throughout the day, I will repeat the mantra for today. But the true goal, is to go deep within and detach myself from all the troubling thoughts that are attached to the world I see. I will leave the appearances of forms, instead seeking the Ineffable Reality of All that Is, as it is, in the Heavenly Cosmos I never left now.

 

 

I can attain God Communion now and in every Holy Instant. It is natural to do so. The way to Bliss, Joy, and santosha-contentment will show itself, and I will become consciously aware of being One, in Samadhi with God Divine, by surrendering my entire attention to the inner layers of my being.

 

 

Throughout the day, I will chant today’s mantra often, with slow repetitions, closing my eyes whenever possible and I will contemplate what the word vibrations mean and how they feel in my metaphysical energy body. I will allow Kundalini Desire Energy to rise and expand my awareness of the wholeness and sanctity that complete me. It is time that I begin to laugh at all my fearful insinuations, and remember the Father-Mother, Divine Guiding Light, Universal Spirit leads me and accompanies me on this journey, this exile, through the wilderness of the world, every step of the way, as I seek the Inner Promised Land of sweetness, milk and honey wholeness.
