real, actual, effaceable spiritual reality of ‘X’ number of dimensions expressed inthe direct and the esoteric teachings of Christ corresponds significantly to the‘extra natural’, currently unexplainable recent discoveries (and those soon tocome) of physics then the scientific skepticism of academia and thefundamentalist blinders of most religions will begin to fall away from their eyesopening the doors of perception within their minds, hopefully allowing manymore to be aware of the need, and be caught up in the excitement and passionof those of us who work and await the dawning of a new age in which the healingfusion and reunion of science and religion reveals to all the world the One Truth,the AR, the Toa, the ‘Quality’ of Persig in ‘Zen and the Art of MotorcycleMaintenance’ by and through which life has meaning and a purpose greater thatthe sum of its parts. This is why this to me is the most important task facinghumanity. We must learn the Truth about what it means to be a human being, a Truth that grants to all living beings their own measure of dignity and a rightfulplace in our multidimensional universe, free to pursue that which represents foreach on the spiral of being, what I call, ‘authentic life’, for each has it’s ownpurpose, and to fulfill that purpose is to live authentically and by default providesmeaning to one’s existence, albeit for man there is a higher purpose of greatermeaning to which he may aspire. The story of Christ begins in the Bible as he was born to a Hebrew mother andraised in the culture of Israel at that time. We know he intensely studied thePentateuch, the ‘five books of Moses’, and the prophetic books as well. From thefour accounts of his life in the New Testament we know he was thirty years oldwhen he began his ministry, yet we know little of his life till then., except that weare told that as an infant he was taken to Egypt to escape Herod’s death decreefor all first born males of that time. We do not know how long he was in Egypt orwhat he might have learned there, but at the age of twelve it is recorded that hewas back in Israel and ‘taught’ as one ‘learned’ in the temple. We do not reallyknow if he stayed in Israel for the next eighteen years, however some apocryphalaccounts say he traveled to India. No one knows but the possibility is intriguingin that some of what he taught corresponds to some of the teachings of theBuddha. Whatever the number, locations, and extent of the influences on himhis message as a whole is largely original. Particularly unprecedented is thesubstantial ‘revelations’ he gave us on the nature of spiritual reality and ourrelationship to it. Derivative in part or not, as a whole this was new andcontroversial, in the context of Judaism, at least, and threatening to the verypower of Rome as well, as his crucifixion and the later persecution of Christiansattests. The power and mystery of this man and his message exists to this day,two thousand years later, as (a billion) people still seek His Truth for guidanceand hope.
