The Christ has been for two thousand years the supreme Head of the Church Invisible, the Spiritual Hierarchy, composed of disciples of all faiths. He recognises and loves those who are not Christian but who retain their allegiance to Their Founders—the Buddha, Mohammed and others. He cares not what the faith is if the objective is love of God and of humanity. If men look for the Christ Who left His disciples centuries ago, they will fail to recognise the Christ Who is in process of returning. The Christ has no religious barriers in His consciousness. It matters not to Him of what faith a man may call himself.
The Son of God is on His way and He cometh not alone. His advance guard is already here and the Plan which they must follow is already made and clear. Let recognition be the aim. Alice Bailey
He is that Great Being Whom the Christian calls the Christ; He is known also in the Orient as the Bodhisattva, and as the Lord Maitreya, and is the One looked for by the devout Mohammedan, under the name of the Imam Mahdi. He it is Who has presided over the destinies of life since about 600 B.C. and He it is Who has come out among men before, and Who is again looked for. He is the great Lord of Love and of Compassion, just as his predecessor, the Buddha, was the Lord of Wisdom. ... He is the World Teacher, the Master of the Masters, and the Instructor of the Angels, and to Him is committed the guidance of the spiritual destinies of men, and the development of the realisation within each human being that he is a child of God and a son of the Most High. Alice Bailey
WHEN men feel that they have exhausted all their own resources and have come to an end of all their own innate possibilities, and that the problems and conditions confronting them are beyond their solving or handling, they are apt to look for a divine Intermediary and for the Mediator Who will plead their cause with God and bring about a rescue.Read More
A talk given at the 2014 Christ's Festival meeting in London | New York
Today’s world is radically different from that of two thousand years ago, and understanding the changes that are needed for the Christ consciousness to flourish in this era of mass communications and the internet is challenging. The omnipresent icon of Jesus Christ that Christianity has constantly energised down the ages makes the physical reappearance of the Christ even harder to imagine against the backdrop of this age of technology; and as time marches on, the more it seems distorted and disconnected from the needs of our times. It takes a strong effort of the will to detach oneself from religious portrayals of the Christ and to reconsider His reappearance from a fresh perspective. How could such a figure fit into the current world scenario in a way that wouldn’t induce hysteria and wild adulation? How could such a figure lead human consciousness forward into the realm of pure reason and intelligent love without over-stimulating the emotional nature of the masses which could easily be whipped up into a frenzy by the world press?
