The Mystical Christ and the Anti-Christ
Christ could also be interpreted mythically, traditionally, or mystically. In metaphysics we come to comprehend that there’s a distinction between Jesus the person, and Christ the Saviour. From a mystical viewpoint Christ represents a sure occult precept inside the microcosm. It’s really what is named the “Larger Self,” “Christ Consciousness,” or in psychology, the “superconsciousness.” Sure esoteric teachings know Christ to be the Non secular Triad inside man’s microcosmic being. Concisely, Christ is part of the spirit inside us. The complete consciousness or attainment of the notice of the superconscious thoughts is the “second-coming,” esoterically interpreted. Didn’t St. Paul declare that we needed to develop the “thoughts” that was in Christ (Jesus)? And that scriptures say that Christ, the upper thoughts, knocks on the door of our consciousness and waits for its entry? Those that are unaware of this esoteric principle await for the bodily look of Christ (the Grasp Jesus, or Lord Maitreya).
Nevertheless, from a religious viewpoint, it’s the Christ that awaits our look within the greater ranges of consciousness the place “he” features. The religious attainment of Christhood is facilitated by sure types of meditation, religious disciplines, service to humanity, and metaphysical examine. It has naught to do with the unfoldment of psychic or paranormal powers. We point out this for we’ve got seen how many individuals, particularly those that profess to be paranormals deceive themselves into pondering that they’re being religious and being of nice help to humanity when the truth is they’re inflicting folks to go astray with their many deceptive “companies” and “wares” that don’t set off the evolutionary impulse inside the psyche of their sufferers or purchasers however merely lengthen their state of mortality and religious ignorance. Their work affords solely temporal reduction, nothing extra. Like orthodox allopathic medication, they cope with signs however don’t go to the center of the matter. It’s the case of the blind main the blind. Now we have typically been warned of false prophets in scriptures.
In accordance with prophecies, earlier than the arrival of the second-coming of Christ, the Anti-Christ would first make his look. Nevertheless, this too shouldn’t be taken at face worth. That Christ is a religious precept to be discovered inside man can be true of his adversary, nonetheless, in saying this we don’t repudiate the potential for any particular person chief embodying the attributes and spirit of the Anti-Christ. We all know that there are a lot of fallen-angels which can be presently on earth and are set on corrupting and destroying humanity.
In Islam, the Anti-Christ is known as Dajjal. He’s the deceiver, the liar, the corrupter. Sure folks imagine that Dajjal is mostly, some particular person that might shortly make his look in world affairs; others interpret the beings navigating UFOs because the cursed Dajjal. As Christ is to be discovered inside man, so is Dajjal, the Anti-Christ to be discovered inside. Dajjal is definitely the human ego, or the false ego, the decrease self, the beast whose quantity is 666. This mysterious quantity that has puzzled Christians for hundreds of years really has its roots in Kabbalism. Within the Arabic alphabet, for example, each letter has its numerical worth. That is known as the “Neptu Huruf Hijaiyah” by Islamic occultists in Indonesia. The Greek and Hebrew alphabets likewise have comparable numbering methods whereby every letter additionally represents a worth. Sure phrases within the Greek language which means or referring to “ego,” have letters of which when added-up numerically, give the sum of 666. The beast, or the Anti-Christ, or Dajjal, subsequently, is solely symbolic. It represents the human ego in its unfavourable expression. We imagine our readers perceive the implication of this; therefore, we is not going to dwell on this additional, besides to inquire: Are we expressing the qualities and nature of Dajjal or Christ in our on a regular basis lives?
From the above illustration concerning the arrival of Jesus, the Christ, we are able to see how essential it’s to maintain an open-mind. It’s in all probability wiser to anticipate the sudden relatively than to anticipate one thing that has no existence except for being in our personal fantasies and beliefs. Even our personal interpretations, we admit, are controversial and are prone to dialogue or debate. We could also be mistaken in particulars however not in essence–we know what we speakof.
There’s nothing absolute in mortal expertise. Even the holy ones could change their strategy of help to humanity within the fixing of karmic issues. Their methods usually are not wholly predictable, simply because the methods of humanity could not completely conform to at least one’s prognostications. There’s all the time the factor of free selection that even any particular person may not be completely sure as to the trail he would take when confronted with a sure state of affairs the place he has to decide.
The World-Instructor and Non secular Administrators
It isn’t identified to most individuals that within the background of the exterior governments of the world lies a single religious authorities that directs the affairs of planetary evolution. In esoteric teachings, that is the Non secular Hierarchy of Terra inside God’s huge kingdom. We could also be skeptical as to the existence of this religious authorities/hierarchy, its objective, and even of the members composing it; however, many college students of the occult have verified their existence via private expertise.
On the head of this Non secular Hierarchy is the planetary deity, Sanat Kumara. Immediately serving below this deity or King of this planet is the Planetary Buddha, presently held by Gautama; and below this officer, the Cosmic Christ. The latter is the director overseeing the three fundamental departments within the Hierarchy: the “Division of Manu,” the “Division of the World-Lecturers,” and the “Division of Civilization,” or the workplace of the Mahachohan. The three departments in flip direct the actions of the guardians of planetary evolution, the Seven Lords of the Rays. The current World-Lecturers are Masters Jesus and Kuthumi. It ought to be understood that the above titles and places of work usually are not all the time held by the identical entities, and that these beings who maintain these places of work are sometimes well-known historic saints, prophets, avatars, and saviours.
In affiliation with the Non secular Hierarchy is the Karmic Board, the members and administrators of that are known as “Lords of Karma.” The Karmic Lords regulate and dispense karma to each particular person, group and nation on this planet. The Non secular Hierarchy works in cooperation with the Lords of Karma of their many actions. It ought to be identified that the aim of the Non secular Hierarchy and the Karmic Board is to help humanity and all sentient beings to evolve to a better state of being. What’s related to our dialogue right here is that the Cosmic Christ who previously held the workplace of World Instructor is the Nice Being and Saviour that humanity is ready for. All the world’s religions have their supply within the division of the World-Instructor, and that divine being who presently holds the publish of Cosmic Christ. This entity is the Messiah, Imam Mahdi, Christ, Kalki Avatar, and the Buddha Maitreya anticipated by spiritual devotees everywhere in the world. He’s commonly known as Lord Maitreya, nonetheless, this in flip is however a title. His actual identify is just not typically identified; some say he goes by the identify of “Harjas.” Relating to his id, Virochana Khalsa in his guide, “Tantra of the Beloved,” believes the current holder of the title Lord Maitreya to be none aside from the Nice Deathless Avatar, Babaji, alias Nagaraj.
Babaji was born a while within the third century AD. As a physical-immortal, he’s stated to be alive to this very day. One in all his gurus is the Rishi Agastya, additionally stated to be deathless, or an immortal. In accordance with historical past, this Nice Seer as soon as visited the Indonesian archipelago. That is the theme of Poerbatjaraka’s guide “Agastya di Nusantara (“Agastya within the Indonesian Archipelago).” One of many former theosophical leaders right here in Indonesia, R. S. Suyatno, already deceased, believed the actual id of Semar, the “dhanyang,” “Manu,” or guardian of Indonesia to be none aside from Rishi Agastya.
Babaji was the one who despatched Paramahansa Yogananda to the Occident, earlier this century, to unfold the teachings of Kriya Yoga–a yogic science primarily based on sure esoteric teachings to be discovered within the Bhagavad Gita. This yogic science accelerates soul-evolution by leaps and bounds.
We must always point out right here that this planet is host to many cosmic guests of lofty religious improvement. Sathya Sai Baba who resides in India is simply one of many many beings who’ve descended on earth to help the evolution of humanity. He is among the Cosmic Avatars and is taken into account as an incarnation of Vishnu, and even Shiva.
Then what about Ratu Adil and Satria Piningit? They too are members of the Non secular Hierarchy and the Karmic Board as these appellations suggests. Nevertheless, allow us to first cope with the Christ, Lord Maitreya. We must always add earlier than persevering with that these beings could or could not possess bodily our bodies. Most of them work from religious ranges. These beings are spiritually immortal, which means mainly that they possess a continuity of consciousness encompassing the bottom realms of life to the very Throne of God. Wherever they might be they preserve consciousness of their id, their perform, and objective with out ever lapsing into the state of unconsciousness, even ought to they shift planes or dimensions. They work in some ways and in historic occasions, these beings had been known as, “gods.”
Andrew Tomas in his guide, “Shamballa: Oasis of Gentle” narrates of his journey to Tibet and his discussions with sure Lamas. In reply to one in every of his questions concerning world affairs, one of many senior Lama says: “Maitreya will present the best way however it will likely be as much as mankind to tread the highway.” Tomas then inquired, “How concerning the creation of Maitreya?” The Lama solemnly replied: “Within the final quarter of the 20th century mankind should put together for the approaching of the Arhats (Saints), even Maitreya himself, at this important interval of the world’s historical past.”
Bodily, Maitreya is alleged to be of Western origin–or a minimum of brought-up within the western tradition. Statues depict him sitting as a westerner, in a western pose, with each ft on the ground, as a substitute of the standard “lotus” asana assumed by the numerous buddhas and bodhisattvas.
Maitreya Buddha, the World Saviour, is related to the “legendary” land of Shamballa. There are a lot of legends identified in Tibet, China, Russia, Ceylon, Burma and lots of different international locations concerning Shamballa. To some Shamballa may signify a metropolis, valley, palace, temple, monastery, or a state of consciousness. James Hilton modeled Shangri-La in his guide, “Misplaced Horizon,” after the legend of Shamballa. Many nice souls, warriors or knights of the spirit have their coaching on this mystical place.
In accordance with the Ageless Knowledge Shamballa is the religious retreat of the Lord of the World, or the planetary deity, Sanat Kumara, identified by Tibetans as Rigden Jyepo. Occult teachings discuss with him because the “Youth of Sixteen Summers.” Shamballa was established 18 million years in the past by Sanat Kumara when he got here from Venus with different cosmic beings to take cost of earth’s religious unfoldment. Shamballa is alleged to lie over the Gobi desert within the etheric airplane; others imagine that Shamballa lies bodily someplace within the coronary heart of the Himalayas. Doreal, a scholar of esotericism, says in his work, “Maitreya, Lord of the World” that Shamballa is believed to cowl an enormous space, and that it’s divided right into a Northern and a Southern portion:
“It’s divided into two components. In Southern Shamballa there dwell these beings known as masters, adepts, or nice Gurus. In Northern Shamballa there dwells the Avatar or new World-Instructor who’s to return into the world and that there he has gathered collectively the entire warriors of Shamballa. That’s, all these souls who in previous incarnations, have advanced to the place the place they’re worthy to be the sunshine bearers within the Age (the Aquarian Age) that’s to return . . .”
The soldiers and knights of Shamballa come armed not with bodily swords or armaments, not with bodily power; they arrive with religious energy to be able to conquer the darkish forces of the world. Maitreya is alleged to steer them into Armageddon, the nice “Jihad” or religious warfare, using on his symbolic white steed. The next is a Tibetan prophecy made in 1915:
“It’s predicted that the manifestation of Maitreya shall come after the wars. however the ultimate warfare shall be for the reason for the true teachings (spirituality, in contradistinction to non secular dogmas). However each rising up towards Shamballa shall be stricken in all his works. And the waves shall wash away his dwellings. And even a canine shall not reply to his name. Not clouds however lightning shall he see on the ultimate night time. And the fiery messenger shall stand up on pillars of Gentle. Every warrior of Shamballa shall be named the Invincible. The Lord Himself hastens, and his banner is already above the mountains.”
The Historic Christ and His Fashionable Look
A number of centuries earlier than the looks of the Grasp Jesus and his affiliate, John, the Baptist–who was the prophet Elijah in a previous incarnation–preparations had been already underway for the approaching of the Cosmic Christ. The Essenes, a mystical brotherhood current on the western shore of the Useless Sea space throughout the time of the early Roman empire, was established for the aim of getting ready candidates that might be the earthly dad and mom of the “car” or little one that the Christ would overshadow, or perform via; and likewise to arrange the kid himself for the very important half that he would play in forming an ideal instrument or channel that might be utilized by the Christ. The Essenes was a mystical department of the Nice White Brotherhood they usually had been properly often called the “brothers in white,” indicating that they had been maybe, the forerunners of Islamic Sufism. The historians Pliney, Josephus, and Philo talked about them of their writings, and the famed “Useless Sea Scrolls” have gained the up to date public’s consideration of their former existence. Nevertheless, it’s notable that this mystical sect was not talked about within the New Testomony, apart from the assorted references concerning the lads in white who appeared in Jesus’ tomb, and on the time of his Ascension. It’s also fairly odd that they aren’t talked about in Rabbinical literature or within the Talmud.
Being the religious guardians and academics of Jesus (not his authentic identify), the Essenes had a powerful affect upon the lad and through his ministry in later years, Jesus taught most of the precepts and tenets of the Essenes. One such educating is that of angelology or maybe what Islamic occultists right here in Indonesia name “Ilmu Khodam.”
Via sure mystical means and indicators that even the Magi acknowledged, the council of the Essenes selected a younger virgin to be the Mom and an aged carpenter to be the Father. It’s associated within the gospels how the mom was knowledgeable of her coming being pregnant by Angel Gabriel. Some occult college students imagine this Gabriel to be one of many senior brothers of the Essenes, or a minimum of the channel for the lofty being. Angel, from the Greek “angelos” merely means “messenger.” At the moment, nonetheless, we is not going to talk about the issue of the “Immaculate Conception” that has so vexed students and laymen alike.
Jesus was born to be the car of the Cosmic Christ, or Lord Maitreya, and to help within the initiating of a religious awakening within the inception of the Age of Pisces. The Grasp Jesus and Lord Maitreya, or the entity that presently holds the title of Cosmic Christ are two totally different beings. The latter was and nonetheless is the Guru of the previous.
When the Grasp Jesus commenced his ministry, Lord Maitreya typically took over the physique of Jesus to ascertain bodily contact with humanity. This mode of operation was additionally chosen for the second-coming that might have occurred within the early a long time of the 20th century, however one way or the other failed.
Within the early years of the final century, the leaders of the Theosophical Society, Annie Besant, and C.W. Leadbeater had been looking out for candidates among the many younger, who can be the car for Lord Maitreya’s second-coming–just as Tibetan Lamas would seek for their “tulkus,” or incarnations of Dalai Lamas and different religious dignitaries. They found one distinctive little one of Indian origin: Krishnamurti. They ultimately took him and his brother below their wing, educated them and skilled the younger Krishnamurti for the duties that he must face forward. Virtually each night time Leadbeater took him by way of astral journey to his private Grasp, and to do sure work within the astral planes. Krishnamurti’s love for his Grasp and his teachings had been immeasurable. It appeared that Krishnamurti’s religious preparation was progressing easily and solely the day was waited wherein Lord Maitreya would overshadow Krishnamurti’s physique. Then an unlucky incident occurred. Krishnamurti’s brother grew to become gravely ailing. Krishnamurti sought assist from his Grasp and different members of the Non secular Hierarchy however with no seeming response. His brother ultimately handed away and this had a traumatic impact upon his youthful thoughts. He ultimately rejected something to do with Theosophy, the Masters, and their teachings. He even rejected his position because the car of the Christ and dissolved the Order that was established for the aim of presenting Lord Maitreya to the world. Though he ultimately grew to become a world-teacher in his personal proper, the holy ones had been ever sadden by Krishnamurti’s perspective and actions. They stated that Krishnamurti’s teachings presents a lofty purpose to folks, however on the identical time he takes away the ladder via which the purpose might be reached.
In accordance with additional communications from the Hierarchy, although, Krishnamurti’s refusal to play his half in Maitreya’s emergence had a constructive impact. Lord Maitreya determined to seem personally on earth with out overshadowing or working via any single particular person.
Ruth Montgomery as soon as wrote an article within the Reader’s Digest, and in it she quotes a prediction made by Jeane Dixon regarding a world-saviour who was alleged to have been born on Feb 5, 1962. Dixon says that:
“Mankind will start to really feel the nice power of this man about 1980, and his energy will develop mightily till 1999, at which era there will likely be peace on earth to all males of goodwill.”
Judging by appearances, plainly this prediction has not been fulfilled. And a 10-year span appears too quick for peace to be established worldwide–knowing human-nature. No particular person is ready to set up peace on this planet single-handedly. It takes the collective effort and cooperation of humanity.
Maybe we must always take into account the phrasing of this prediction for Dixon could have emphasised that peace will descend on earth solely to “all males of goodwill.” If the latter is the case then the which means is evident: that peace in a single’s coronary heart is barely established when one has a goodwill-attitude. This means that there are a lot of who’re experiencing peace at this very moment–these are these with goodwill.
As will be reasoned, the Peace-bringer would focus extra on the lots than these few who’re already residing in bliss–only the sick want therapeutic. However may this individual that Dixon predicted be the Lord Maitreya, the Imam Mahdi? Folks may do nothing however wait in energetic anticipation within the ensuing years.
