The Eucharist - Are you the Christ?

As we come out of the age of Pisces (the fish – a symbol of Christianity) and into the age of Aquarius ( key phrase ‘be the change’) we leave behind the notion that Christ is singular. A separate entity outside of ourselves.

The Roman Catholic ‘Eucharist’ says it all. The body of Christ is with you and is in you – ‘eu – christ’ – you are Christ. For those of you who do not know of the tradition of the Catholic Church, the Eucharist is the symbol (round, flattened bread) of the body of Christ given to the congregation during mass, the wine given during this procedure represents His blood. So, in no uncertain terms, in the consumption of the Eucharist you are taking in the body and blood of Christ (symbolically) and in doing that you are agreeing to allow the embodiment of Christ within you (temple), merging with your DNA, so to speak. A spiritual profundity indeed!

And is it such an unusual idea that Christ had a wife and children? Our bodies are sacred temples of divine expression. It makes perfect sense to me that Jesus fell in love and procreated with the woman he loved and in doing that, he continued his bloodline. As the book ‘The Da Vinci Code’ pointed out, the holy grail could indeed be a reference to Jesus Christ’s bloodline. Now instead of taking offense at this, why is it not reason to rejoice! Jesus left us His sacred bloodline so that we could awaken ourselves when the time was right. This is a concept that renews my faith in humanity so why is it such a bitter pill for most Christians to swallow? Is it not a truly heartening idea that we may have the remnants of the Christ in us? He imparted a truly special gift to humanity and for those who truly wish to examine this theory you will find that the Christ story was not a failed message after all – it was a divine plan.

Does it surprise you that instead of searching outside of yourself for a savior to come and save you from yourselves that, indeed, you are that savior. The cliché that everything you’ll ever need is within you is now appearing to be an absolute truth. Jesus Christ himself advocated this. It was a much easier, and if I might say, lazier route to hand over the job of spirituality and the understanding of the ‘God’ concept to someone or something else outside of yourselves. This is what has happened through Christianity. You are handing your power over to someone else. If we are to take back control over our destiny and life as we know it on this planet we must never hand our power over to anything or anyone outside of ourselves.

I am going to give a very brief synopsis of my interpretation of what Jesus Christ meant to me. From the time I was a young girl I have always found the church and religious doctrine a very hard pill to swallow. My father insisted that I attended church every Sunday up until the age of 16, something that I resented him for but now find to be a very synchronistic part of my life. When I was 16 I was allowed to choose what I wanted to do. I decided to go to church on Easter and on Christmas day. Eventually that tapered off as I started to delve into other religions and spiritual practices. Although I never liked the power and control that the church had over it’s congregation, I always thought that there was some very spiritually sound advice in the Bible. Some things rang true and others didn’t.

The story of Jesus Christ was always an easy listen. Didn’t you find? When someone speaks his or her Truth there is always a resonance within the words being said that will affect you positively. Words are powerful tools of both positive and negative vibration. So, when Jesus spoke his Truth, it resonates within because fundamentally we know of the Truth as everyone has the Truth within. Our Truths are buried deep inside and the whole process of enlightenment is to shine a light on our Truth.

Jesus had no judgment, what a concept! How long has it been since you passed no judgment? Jesus had no heavy rules and regulations – he was a regular ‘hippy’ spreading the news of love for one another. If you clear all the dogma away around Jesus his truth was simple.

‘Love’.

Some of Jesus’ key messages were that of the love that God has for us, the love we should have for each other and the immense value of every one of us. He claimed to be Divine. Well, in the New Age we are now being taught the same. We are all Divine. And wouldn’t that make sense. If God is omnipresent, well then it stands to reason that He/She is in everyone and everything. Ergo, we are God. God experiencing the miracle of biological life in the Universe. I think that makes perfect sense. Jesus’ messages and teachings, although misperceived, miscommunicated and altered to suit the various religious doctrines, are still teachings that will bear the test of time. They are worthy of our attention still In this modern day and as we move into the New Age. In fact, and I am not a religious person, I believe that we have to look behind us to see the way forward. But lets try to leave the emotional baggage behind us to and move into this new way of thinking with a clarity of thought that we are all capable of adopting.

If you still think that someone ‘out there’ is going to come and save us or that you need to ‘believe’ in order to be accepted (whether it’s in society or into heaven) then you are still giving your power away. What a waste of a truly God-given status. God has given us the power and we give it away – an unused, unopened gift. If that isn’t blasphemy then I do not understand the meaning of that word.

Suffice to say that many of the things we were told are metaphors or symbolic gestures to help us grapple with certain concepts. Things like heaven and hell are a state of mind and not necessarily a physical place, although the power of ones mind is so magnificent that you could very well conceptualize something into existence. So be very careful of what you believe.

Right and wrong are also concepts. Oh, I can hear the crying out! Think about it, they are just concepts. The one who perceives the right or the wrong is the one who is the judge. As you are to, inevitably judge nothing, then right and wrong do not exist. Could this be why God is impartial? Not through lack of caring or wanting to help but coming from a place of non-judgement. We are on a planet of free choice. Nothing will intercept our free will. This is a vital key in experiencing our Godliness. If we were intercepted all the time and shown the right way we would not grow, we would be tantamount to robots being programmed. This is not far off from our current reality. Our current reality dictates to us through fear-based religious doctrine and media. How many of you love God and accept Jesus into your life not out of free will but out of a sense of securing your place in Heaven. This is the fear. How many of you fear living? Fear going outdoors or taking a trip on a plane? This is the fear the media instills. Hate is not the opposite of love, fear is. In the absence of love fear is present and in the absence of fear love is present. How are we going to implement this Utopia on Earth? By taking the reigns of our own Divinity.

We take back our power. God is waking up. You are the Christ. The Second Coming is about unifying humanity. Mankind will be the new Christ. We will not give our power away, we will take it, thank God for it and use it to bring about the Love in the New Age. A new concept of Love.

A love that does not judge skin colour, religious doctrine, social differences, sexuality and the list goes on. We can do this, it is our last chance. Look at history, how many times have we repeatedly made the same mistakes over and over again. As Einstein said, our problems cannot be solved by the same level of awareness that created them.Why don’t we take the time to look back and say, well if it didn’t work out back then why will it work now? The answer: it won’t! Change is the only constant. Mahatma Gandhi said something so profound that it should be stuck to your fridge door: ‘We must be the change we wish to see’. I can see nothing more succinct than what that says to us. Instead of relentlessly judging yourself and your neighbours, stop it. Do you want to be judged? Hell, no! So stop doing it to others. We all make mistakes. Let me repeat that because it is that important.

WE ALL MAKE MISTAKES.

We are all in the process of learning. The only thing that has changed is that we have to graduate now. We are going to be taking that final exam. The one where we have to walk the walk and talk the talk. The one where we are going to be that change that Gandhi spoke of. We are going to love unconditionally like Jesus asked us to. We are not going to idly stand by and waste our lives in meaningless pursuit – we are going to take a stand and see the world with new eyes. Forgiving eyes…our eyes will surely be amazed at the beauty we have taken for granted, not only in the surrounding beauty of the lands, seas and living creatures that share this awesome planet with us but in ourselves.

Compassion is to understand without judgment. To be compassionate is to be like Christ. When we empathize we try to feel another’s situation. When we have compassion, we are moved to do something about it. The feeling that gives rise to alleviate another’s suffering. No wonder Jesus tried to advocate compassion.

Can you imagine if we all took a moment to feel someone else’s suffering? Would we be so quick to judge or condemn? Would we be so quick to go to war? Wouldn’t this be the ultimate route to peace on Earth? Feeling another’s suffering, not just saying you do but actually feeling the compassion for another. Just the recognition of pain is a start to the healing process. Just acknowledging someone’s pain can be the road to recovery for that person/s.

With truth comes reconciliation, with reconciliation comes peace. Doesn’t everyone just want to be acknowledged and heard? Why is it so hard for us to listen? No-one is asking you to physically get out there and save the world (not unless you truly have the clout to do so anyway), we are just saying take the time out to really listen, empathize and in doing that you heal. Then the next step is to love. For everyone is a mirror to ourselves. Everyone is mirrored back to us as we face our fears, walk through them to come out on the other side as compassionate, loving, caring and divine beings who recognize the Godhead in their centre and act from that place of love and certainty.

If we all strive to be this way we will become the Christ incarnate. We are encoded with this divine bloodline, it is coursing through our veins. Jesus left behind a legacy that we are to fulfill in this new age. Would you want to let Him down? Would you want to let the rest of mankind down? I hope not.
