"The Christ, the second face of God himself, has never taken a physical body; it only enters souls and spirits which are ready to receive it and become one with it. So Jesus, like all other great Masters of humanity and founders of religion, had a long road to travel before this spirit descended into him. If he was called Jesus Christ, it is not because he was the Christ but because he received the Christ. We can say that Jesus was God, but only in the sense that you and I, animals, trees, rocks and stars are also God. Since everything that exists comes from the divine substance, everything, in this sense, is God. The only difference is in the level of consciousness, and Jesus had the highest possible consciousness of God’s presence within him. It is therefore this consciousness we must develop, until we melt into the Divinity and can finally say like Jesus: ‘The Father and I are one.’"
