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.

 

THE RELEASEMENT MASS/SAMADHI MASS FOR THE NEW HUMANITY: EUCHARIST RE-IMAGINED

A MASS FOR THE NEW HUMANITY: THE RELEASEMENT MASS

A MEDITATIVE, DEEP, UPLIFTING EXPERIENCE OF DIRECT GOD-UNION, AN OPEN TABLE TO WHICH ALL ARE WELCOME

The Releasement Mass is an adaptation of several liturgies with original material by Bryan Rice, but is unique unto itself. This Mass was inspired by the Gnostic Liturgy of Peace and by spiritual teachers such as Tau Malachi, Paramahansa Yogananda, Rosamonde Miller, and Patricia Jepsen Chuse. This Mass is an empowerment and mix of shamanism, A Course in Miracles, Non-dual Gnosticism, and elements of dance that are part of the Cosmic Mass created by Matthew Fox. Come and be uplifted and freed from compulsions and desires that cause suffering and neurosis. Experience something you have never given yourself permission to take part in before. This Mass transcends any one tradition and is a partaking in the Light and Life Force of the Radiant Christ Presence. It is not a sacrifice in any way. It is a remembrance of our True Nature and Oneness in the Divine.

SAMADHI OF THE BODY AND BLOOD: A MASS FOR THE NEW HUMANITY
All are invited to this “Open Table Fellowship”. All you need do is BYOBW: “BRING YOUR OWN BREAD” and “WINE”.The purpose of this Mass is to eradicate all mortal longings and to Transfigure sense desire energy into a sacred yearning for the divine substance and Cosmic Meal of immortal outpouring. This Mass is NOT a sacrificial remembrance, but a remembrance of “who we truly are in the Fullness of Heaven”. All of you have the I AM Divine presence of Christ Consciousness in you. You can consecrate bread and wine together with the priest by your innate divinity. This consecration is a non-local, remote experience not bound to one space-time location. We do this in thanksgiving for the life of Jeshua Messiah, who revealed the path of Enlightenment, the “Way” to the Supernal Parents, the goal of this Eucharist is to gain flashes of insight and illumination, to help further the cause of Awakening from sleep and ignorance, unconsciousness, and delusion (maya). Contained within this Yoga (Divine Union/Bridal Chamber) is a Releasement (Apolytrosis/ Deliverance) of any and all forms of darkness and oppressive spiritual forces, as the Radiant Light of the +Father and +Mother God, the +Holy Androgynous-One-God, penetrate the darkness with Supernal Light from the Heavenly Abode. In this Eucharist Yoga Feast, there is a true exchange of Primal Life Force energy transmitted through Pure, transformative God-Consciousness. In the receiving of the divinized gifts of bread and wine, one can experience the Bliss of the Ultimate Reality, strength to endure, power to overcome, and get a glimpse of The Fiery Light-Transmission, Zion Illumination, or Samadhi Yoga (UNION) with God, by realizing the Love of God in the intimate quarters of what mystics of the past called the Bridal Chamber, and your true nature through Self-Realization. Above all, we take part to evolve and accelerate in Consciousness. You ARE the CHRIST. 

THOUGHTS FROM BRYAN RICE

THE ONE AND ONLY RULE: That you consider yourself to be a conduit for the Divine Source of All That is, and thereby, have within you, the very nucleus of the God-Presence/Spark – the Vital Life Force of God which is the Unified Principle and circuitry through which the “BODY AND BLOOD” of the Father-Mother flows and thereby CAN consecrate the Bread and Wine when you are in alignment or At-One-Ment with that very God-Power. Together in the meditative Mass audio, you co-consecrate the elements. What you believe happens or doesn’t happen during the celebration of the Eucharist is of no consequence, just that it is a Rite of Empowerment, Fellowship, Thanksgiving, and Rejuvination.

What I suggest as mere food for thought (no pun intended) is that the “Essence” of the elements beyond the atomic and even beyond the quantum level of existence, does in fact become the “Fiery Desire-Light-Energy” and the Messianic Consciousness Substance that serves fit to remind us of who we are. THE GODSELF, THE CHRIST. THE BUDDHA. KRISHNA CONSCIOUSNESS (not the little ego self-definitions we invent). This Essence that already exists within us, rises and falls, seemingly dying (though only ever hiding) then experiences the Resurrection-Power through God-Union. This unitive aspect of our Essence with that of God-Being/GodSelf/Christ-Self is the meaning of this Mass. We merge with the divine in the intimate holy of holies and turn away from the outer, exterior, sense identified habits, to be One with the O’ All Maker.

THE ONE AND ONLY THING YOU NEED DO: “BYOBW”: “Bring Your Own Bread and Wine” – Everything else is to be taken as a grain of salt. What speaks to you, you take with you, what doesn’t, you simply let what is happening pass gently by, coming, then going.

WHAT IS THE EUCHARIST? : SOMETHING DIFFERENT TO PONDER

* ON A METAPHYSICAL/ONTOLOGICAL LEVEL:

A DIRECT, INTIMATE, PERSONAL ENCOUNTER WITH the Quaternity through the VEHICLE OF A SACRED FELLOWSHIP MEAL, (OPEN TABLE FELLOWSHIP). DIVINE REALIZATION through a SACRED RITE of THE OUTPOURING OF DIVINE ENERGY, THE TRANSMISSION OF THE FOUR SACRED ELEMENTS, of EARTH, WATER, AIR, and FIRE (LIGHT), invoked from its state of PURE PRESENCE, THE REALM OF POSSIBILITIES, and POTENTIA and then MADE TO MANIFEST as a FIERY INTELLIGENT ACTUALITY – an ANDROGYNOUS HOLY FIRE and LIGHT that gives each recipient a FLASH OF GNOSIS or A TASTE of DIVINE ILLUMINATION = THE CHRIST (LIGHT) PRESENCE. THE DESCENT OF THE CHRIST FROM THE MYSTICAL REALM TO PHYSICAL – MADE MANIFEST IN INDIVIDUALS THROUGH THEIR BELIEF In SHARING and passing of the gifts from one to another (rather than the priest giving the Eucharist to every one – so that there may be no grovelers, or opportunity for guru worship, rather – ) and in proclaiming to each person in succession, that “This is my body, given for you” and “This is my Blood (Life Force), take and drink” – that there is a Principle of the Real Presence of Christ’s Mystical Body and Blood (Life Force), being passed IN and THROUGH each person, beginning with the Priest who invoked the Holy Presence of the Quaternity, consecrated the gifts, and TRANSMITTED the MYSTICAL PRESENCE, INITIATING the chain of SELF-OFFERINGS in a manner reflective of Christ (who began the process), each person in fellowship, one to another outwardly proclaiming what becomes an inward reality, that IN CHRIST, THEY ARE ALL ONE, and that part of each person, is inwardly taken into the next, completing the chain, by returning any unconsumed part of the elements to the Priest.

The Presence of the Holy Name, made manifest through the Christ and Holy Spirit, once invoked and either commanded or made to manifest in the original yet-to-be shared oblation, by the Priest’s best intention, will create a chain reaction – a CONNECTING UNITIVE PRINCIPLE at work by the motion and movement of the Holy Spirit. GOD enters each person THROUGH THE MYSTICAL PRESENCE OF CHRIST in and through the congregation DUE TO this EXERCISE OF FAITH. CHRIST MANIFESTS in those present, but not specifically through any atomic change in the elements themselves. This MYSTICAL PRESENCE is INTENSIFIED in the PRESENCE OF OTHERS, in silence and with candles and incense, and SPARKS A NEWNESS OF REGENERATION (“I am the bread of life”) in all those who humbly share in the COMMEMORATIVE MEAL of REDEMPTIVE LIGHT and the SUBSTANCE/PRESENCE of LIFE ETERNAL .

* PURPOSES OF THE MESSIANIC BANQUET/BRIDAL CHAMBER

1. THANKSGIVING, for Yeshua Messiah laying down his life as a free act of love for his fellow humans, (not out of a God-planned sacrifice for atonement).

2. TO COMMEMORATE the LIFE, and MINISTRY of Yeshua/ the Christos (and the Magdala), and to SHARE in the WORD (Logos)

3. FELLOWSHIP; meals are sacred and bring people together, to commune–i–cate with fellow brethren.

4. TO NOURISH

5. UNITE: Unitive Purpose; God-Union: Communion – meaning to be in UNION “WITH” the Quaternity (Father, Mother Sophia, Son, Daughter Sophia); This UNION or BRIDAL CHAMBER is experienced on the level of BODY, SOUL, MIND, SPIRIT; YOGA with the CHRISTOS/SOPHIA and FATHER-MOTHER GOD.

6. TO INVOKE, MANIFEST, and RECOGNIZE the I AM PRESENCE in oneself and fellow neighbors, and be WITNESSES of/give TESTIMONY to The DIVINE AGENT of God, who in the great Quaternity, Father, Mother, Son, Daughter, ACT through well-intentioned devotees, to MANIFEST, the PRIMAL FOOD OF CREATION, through multi-dimensional, METAPHYSICAL & MYSTICAL MEANS. The PRIMAL FOOD of bread and wine outwardly REPRESENT inward (soul-bound) reality. Wine remains wine, bread remains bread, but the gifts are FIRE and LIGHT that cause the inner atmosphere of a recipient to BLOOM, BLOSSOM, and FLOWER.

7. To ESTABLISH a universal means by which to invoke the Holy Name of God and the Christos that humanity could experience the TRANSCENDENT (Father) and IMMANENT (Divine Mother) aspects of God beyond mere abstractions of the mind. WORD BECOMES FLESH in that the divine in its state of PURE POTENTIAL, through the INTENTIONS of a holy vessel becomes an ACTUALITY. As Yeshua Ben Joseph says in “The Way of Mastery”, “WHAT YOU DECREE IS”.

8. Not so much for the holy oblation or offering of bread and wine to themselves be divinized or to have their properties changed, but through our PARTAKING in them, we ASSUME the NATURE of the CHRISTOS-SOPHIA, synthesized through their syzygy – the one receiving the elements becomes the ESSENCE of GOD expressed in the CICUITRY of GOD’s blood that flows through all existing creatures ever made in the Angrogyny’s image, and has the LIFE FORCE OF not only the Christos, but The Quaternity activated in the frail, human form.

9. TO INITIATE a CHANGE or RAISING OF CONSCIOUSNESS in a congregation, fellowship, or an individual; to give someone an experience of GNOSIS, intimate divine knowing, or a flash of INSIGHT OR ILLUMINATION for the purposes of EVOLUTION and the EMERGENCE of a NEW EARTH and NEW HUMANITY.

10. To TRANSFIGURE the recipient of the Holy Eucharist with the LIGHT-PRESENCE of Christos, the CONTINUUM OF LIGHT ETERNAL, in the SUPERNAL ABODE.

11. To REDEEM; not in the sense of atonement or absolution from sins, but a STRENGTHENING and GUARDIANSHIP of the soul from IGNORANCE and FORCES OF DARKNESS.

12. To INITIATE the CHRIST-FLAME in the hearts of those who receive.

13. To ATTAIN ETERNAL LIFE.

* NOTE ABOUT BLOOD OF GOD/THE TRUE CIRCUITRY

The Father’s blood is the Blood of Christ, a new circuitry manifest by the Jesus Mind, the Cosmic Christ Consciousness, the calibration of all avatars and ascended masters. As we find people relating to one another as one family, nations will know peace and will understand the lifeblood that runs through all and honor it. This “blood” that constitutes the circuitry of the new body or new world will be the Law unto itself and the connecting presence with all people, to a dawn of new cosmic identity. (Patricia Jepsen Chuse – “The GodSelf”)

BOUND TO DUALISTIC CONSCIOUSNESS OR CONSCIOUS UNIFICATION WITH GOD?

As a student of both modern and classical Gnosticism, I have to comment on Tau Malachi’s book Living Gnosis. What I am drawn to are the words he uses to describe conscious unification with God or the divinity within. He doesn’t go so far to say we can achieve Godhood, for if he did, I would challenge that. That would be Luciferian Gnosis, according to Archbishop Christian Thomas Umberger. In the third chapter of Living Gnosis, Malachi accurately describes a condition of polarity which we tend to take upon ourselves. He is right. We, as he says, “identify ourselves almost exclusively with surface consciousness, finite reason, and the limited name and form of mortal being”. One would have to be totally detached from reality, or be in complete ego-illusion, rather to admit that we are not succeptable to ‘surface consciousness’. Though I do not believe everything Tau Malachi teaches about Sophian Gnosticism in particular, again he is right on when he says we “exist on many other levels” also citing that “there are many other dimensions to our consciousness and being, from the physical, vital-emotional and mental levels to spiritual and supernal aspects of consciousness and being into an authentic individual, representing alignment and harmony of our true being. To recognize with God naturally and spontaneously”. Gnostic Christians call this state Messianic or Christ Consciousness and Tau Malachi refered to it also as “the Gnosis of Yeshua Messiah”.

Malachi, then says something brilliant. “Whatever might transpire in our incarnation in the material plane and physical world, the unique essence and truth of our soul of light remains unchanged. It is, was, and forever shall be the same, completely pure and pristine, radiant and glorious, ever at-one with the light of the infinite and divine being. At anytime, we can remember ourselves and the light that is in us and experience a conscious unification with God and Godhead. It is the present truth of our inmost being – our Christ self”.”

Unity with God. That is sought after by every mystic and it is the call of every human, longing to return to its source. Notice he said “conscious unification with God and Godhead”, not “becoming God”.

Messianic Consciousness: The Way to Christhood

As a student of both modern and classical Gnosticism, I have to comment on Tau Malachi’s book Living Gnosis. What I am drawn to are the words he uses to describe conscious unification with God or the divinity within. He doesn’t go so far to say we can achieve Godhood, for if he did, I would challenge that.
