Thrilling Christ Consciousness quotations

The Kingdom of Heaven is within you.


Christ consciousness quote Life will give you whatever experience is the most helpful for the evolution of
Life will give you whatever experience is the most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness.

Worship has been misunderstood as something that arises from a feeling which "comes upon you," but it is vital that we understand that it is rooted in a conscious act of the will, to serve and obey the Lord Jesus Christ.

Christ consciousness quote Happiness is a conscious choice, not an automatic response.
Happiness is a conscious choice, not an automatic response.

Christ's mission is to release the divine into our conscious knowing.

He awakens the impulse in humanity to rise above his lower nature and be aware of his higher nature that dwells within.

Many of us place top priority not on becoming Christ like in the middle of our problems but on finding happiness.... I must firmly and consciously by an act of my will reject the goal of becoming happy and adopt the goal of becoming more like the Lord.

If you want that splendid power in prayer, you must remain in loving, living, lasting, conscious, practical, abiding union with the Lord Jesus Christ.


Christ consciousness quote Each of us guard a gate of that can only be unlocked from the inside.
Each of us guard a gate of that can only be unlocked from the inside.

Behold thine immortal Self resurrected with Christ in the light of illumination, present in every soul, every flower, every atom!

Total relaxation is the ultimate. That's the moment when one becomes a buddha. That is the moment of realization, enlightenment, christ-consciousness. You cannot be totally relaxed right now. At the innermost core a tension will persist.

Were it not for the consciousness of Christ in my life, hour by hour, I could not go on. But He is teaching me the glorious lessons of His sufficiency, and each day I am carried onward with no feeling of strain or fear of collapse.

Christ consciousness quote No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.
No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.

I want the Pope to have the Christ consciousness. I don't want to just talk about Christ.

Christ is your God-essence or the Self, as it is sometimes called in the East.

The only difference between Christ and presence is that Christ refers to your indwelling divinity regardless of whether you are conscious of it or not, whereas presence means your awakened divinity or God-essence.


I was like you are. I thought Jesus came and died on the cross. Jesus' being here was about his death and dying on the cross but it really was about him coming to show us how to do it. To show us the Christ-consciousness that he had and that conciousness abides in all of us. That's what I got. That's what I got.

Christ consciousness quote Just let go. Let go of how you thought your life should be, and embrace the life
Just let go. Let go of how you thought your life should be, and embrace the life that is trying to work its way into your consciousness.

The word yoga is the same as the English word "yoke".

So in the New Testament when Jesus Christ says, "My yoke is easy and my burden is light," my interpretation is that he's referring to yoga. It means "union" - Union of the body, mind and the spirit as one continuum of consciousness.

Christ, Buddha, and Krishna are but waves in the Ocean of Infinite Consciousness that I am!

That a new humanity will be brought forth from this Christ consciousness in each person.

Christ consciousness quote Worrying is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do, but doesn't get
Worrying is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do, but doesn't get you anywhere.

While conscious of the challenges you face, I encourage you to follow faithfully in the footsteps of your founders, and to stir into flame the charisms and apostolic zeal which you have inherited from them, confident that Christ will continue to work with you and to confirm your preaching with signs of his presence and power.


You cannot be a conscious Christian without St.

Paul. He translated the teachings of Christ into a doctrinal structure that, even with the additions of a vast number of thinkers, theologians and pastors, has resisted and still exists after two thousand years.

I would like my art to be about the possibility that each of us has to realize our connectedness with this great Spirit, whatever you want to name it, our inherent Buddha nature, Christ consciousness, primordial reality, the ground of being, God. Whether you want to go for a personal or impersonal perception of Spirit, is up to the individual.

Christ consciousness quote And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not
And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.

Once again, we are reminded that awakening, or enlightenment is not the property of Buddhism, any more than Truth is the property of Christianity. Neither the Buddha nor the Christ belongs exclusively to the communities that were founded in their names. They belong to all people of goodwill, all who are attentive to the secret which lives in the depths of their breath and their consciousness.

To me, my Dad's the greatest guy - next to Jesus Christ - who ever walked this planet. He's been that outstanding male role model in my life. And he's still the same guy I grew up around, very conscious of the image he sets forth. As he would say, 'Wouldn't do anything behind your back that I wouldn't do to your face.'

Everyone receives spiritual formation, just as everyone gets an education.

The only question is whether it is a good one or a bad one. We need to take a conscious, intentional hand in the developmental process. We need to understand what the formation of the human spirit is, and how it can best be done as Christ would have it done. This is an indispensable aspect of developing a psychology that is adequate to human life.


Christ consciousness quote The key to growth is the introduction of higher dimensions of consciousness into
The key to growth is the introduction of higher dimensions of consciousness into our awareness .

Christ wasn't a Christian and Buddha wasn't a Buddhist and Muhammad wasn't Muslim. These people were having the experience of unity consciousnesses and universal consciousness and they spoke of it in words.

Jesus and Shakespeare are fragments of the soul, and by love I conquer and incorporate them in my own conscious domain. His virtue,--is not that mine? His wit,--if it cannot be made mine, it is not wit.

I appeal now to the convictions of the communicants, and ask such persons whether they have not been occasionally conscious of a painful confusion of thought between the worship due to God and the commemoration due to Christ.

Christ consciousness quote Holiness is not the way to Crisht; Christ is the way to holiness.
Holiness is not the way to Crisht; Christ is the way to holiness.

At the conscious approach of death, faith in the Biblical Religion, with its God and Christ and written Revelation, never weakens, but almost or quite always strengthens, and very often advances to a splendid assurance; while unbelief under the same circumstances never strengthens, but almost or quite always weakens and falters, and very often fails utterly.

We come, in our trust, unto God, and the moment we so embrace Him, by committing our total being and eternity to Him, we find every thing is transformed. There is life in us from God; a kind of Christ-consciousness is opened in us, testifying with the apostle,--Christ liveth in me.


Therapy isn't curing somebody of something;

it is a means of helping a person explore himself, his life, his consciousness. My purpose as a therapist is to find out what it means to be human. Every human being must have a point at which he stands against the culture, where he says, "This is me and the world be damned!" Leaders have always been the ones to stand against the society - Socrates, Christ, Freud, all the way down the line.

Christ consciousness quote The flower of consciousness needs the mud out of which it grows.
The flower of consciousness needs the mud out of which it grows.

The conscious attempt to be a good person without Christ is as legalistic as an attempt to make it into Heaven through empty religiosity.

If you want to be of use to God, maintain the proper relationship with Jesus Christ by staying focused on Him & He will make use of you every minute you live- yet you will be unaware, on the conscious level of your life, that you are being used of Him.

As long as we are flippant and stupid and shallow and think that we know ourselves, we shall never give ourselves over to Jesus Christ; but when once we become conscious that we are infinitely more than we can fathom, and infinitely greater in possibility either for good or bad than we can know, we shall be only too glad to hand ourselves over to Him.

Christ consciousness quote Take control of your consistent emotions and begin to consciously and deliberate
Take control of your consistent emotions and begin to consciously and deliberately reshape your daily experience of life.

The great majority of the Christian world is still weeping at the foot of the cross. The consciousness of man is fixed on the Christ Who died, not the Christ Who LIVES. They are looking back to the Redeemer Who was, not the redeemer who IS.


There is a baptism that belongs to Jesus.

It is in His supreme control. No angel or man can bestow it. It comes from Him alone. He it is which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost. So the individual who wants the Holy Spirit must come into definite, conscious contact with Jesus Christ Himself.

The Srimad-Bhagavatam states that any bona fide preacher of God consciousness must have the qualities of titiksa (tolerance) and karuna (compassion). In the character of Lord Jesus Christ we find both these qualities.

Father is the existence out of which everything comes;

Son is that knowledge. It is in Christ that God will be manifest. God was everywhere, in all beings, before Christ; but in Christ we became conscious of Him. This is God. The third is bliss, the Holy Spirit.

When my conscience under the Holy Spirit makes me aware of a specific sin I should at once call that sin sin and bring it consciously under the blood of Christ. Now it is covered and it is not honoring to the finished work of Jesus Christ to worry about it, as far as my relationship to God is concerned. Indeed, to worry about it is to do spite to the infinite value of the death of the Son of God. My fellowship with God is restored.
