When the Creator decided to give co-creators free will, he knew that it became possible that they could misuse their creative powers. This could result in the creation of a veil – made of misqualified energies and incorrect beliefs – that would separate co-creators (in their own minds, not in reality) from their spiritual teachers, their spiritual selves and their Creator. They could then forget their spiritual origin and identity and come to believe they were nothing more than highly evolved animals and the products of hereditary and environmental factors. How could the risk of this be minimized and how could the Creator make sure a co-creator would always have the option to come back to its true identity, no matter how far it had descended below it? The Creator came up with an ingenious solution, a cosmic safety mechanism.
As described earlier, the Creator started the creative process by contracting its Being into a singularity, thus creating the void. Since then, the Creator has gradually been expanding itself in a move to eventually fill up the void. Thus, there are two basic forces involved in creation, namely an expanding force (God the Father) and a contracting force (God the Mother). If the expanding force was dominant, the Creator’s energy would expand in an uncontrolled explosion and instantly fill up the void. If the contracting force was dominant, everything would contract into a black hole and no organized structure could survive. Since the purpose of creation is to provide a gradual expansion that allows co-creators to grow in self-awareness, there must be a force that balances the expanding and contracting forces, thus ensuring a balanced growth that gradually leads toward the end goal.
The force that is designed to balance the expanding force of the Father and the contracting force of the Mother is the only begotten Son of God, namely the universal Christ mind, which the Bible calls the Word. This is a mind that transcends any single human being, but it is possible that a human being can attain a sense of unity with this universal mind and thereby become the Christ in embodiment, become the Word incarnate. In fact, the highest potential for all human beings is to let the mind that was in Christ Jesus be in them and thus fulfill their role of being fully enlightened co-creators who have the dominion of mind over matter demonstrated by Jesus and other enlightened Beings.
The Christ mind is designed to be the unifying element behind all of the myriad manifestations in the world of form. The Christ mind contains the blueprint for creation, including the Creator’s purpose and all of God’s spiritual and natural laws. And as the Bible says, “Without him was not any thing made that was made” (John 1:3), meaning that behind all outer appearances is the one reality of the Christ mind. The consequence of this is that you can never lose your potential to reclaim your true identity.
No matter how far you might have descended into a lower state of consciousness (compared to the consciousness with which you were created), you can never be completely lost. You ALWAYS have the option of reaching for the Christ mind, which is the true savior of humankind. Jesus himself talked about the Christ mind but since he was allowed only to give his teachings in parables, he used a symbol for it, namely “the kingdom of God.” That is why he said that the kingdom of God is within you (Luke 17:21), meaning that the kingdom of God is a state of consciousness.
The Christ mind is the unifying factor that is meant to assure oneness between the Creator and its creation, specifically the self-conscious co-creators with free will. It follows that because of free will, co-creators must be given the option to go against God’s laws. Yet they cannot go against God’s laws by using the mind of Christ, which means that the mind of Christ must have an opposite, namely the mind of anti-christ. The mind of anti-christ is what makes it possible for co-creators to separate themselves from God and their spiritual teachers, creating a veil that makes it seem as if they are separated from their Creator, separated from other co-creators and separated from the planet upon which they live. This makes it possible for co-creators to forget God’s purpose for creation or deliberately rebel against that purpose, refusing to play their intended roles.
When you have some measure of the Christ mind, you see the underlying oneness of all life, which makes it impossible to hurt others. Jesus told you to do unto others what you want them to do to you because he saw the oneness of all life. Thus, he knew that what you do to others, you are doing to yourself, your greater self. Yet when you are trapped in the mind of anti-christ, you think you are separated from this self or that it doesn’t even exist. This gives rise to the illusion that you can hurt other people without harming yourself. It even creates the illusion that your actions do not have consequences or that you can somehow cheat the universe and escape those consequences.
You have no doubt heard the question raised in Shakespeare’s play, Hamlet, “To be or not to be, that is the question.” The higher meaning is, “To be the Christ, or not to be the Christ, that is the real question.” You have the potential to be the Christ in embodiment, but only you can answer the question of whether you will choose to be the Christ or choose not to be the Christ.
