Secret Teachings of Christ, Part 4: There is both an outer and an inner—or secret—meaning to the teachings of Christ. The reason for that is this: Even though some people are awakened enough to comprehend the inner truths, other people—particularly those in the more materialistic, physically-oriented Western culture—are not. For them, the more abstract inner truths must be cloaked in symbolism. While they can readily accept the focus of outer teachings, such as teachings about the personage of Jesus, they are not open to the deeper inner teachings, such as the one that centers on the mind that was in Christ Jesus and is in everyone—the Christ Mind. These are the teachings that were given only to the disciples, who had reached a certain level of spiritual awakening enabling them to more readily comprehend the teachings.
In this lecture, Dr. Masters talks about the deeper meaning behind the birth of Christ Jesus as celebrated during the Christmas Season. This celebration not only honors the birth of Jesus himself, it is also symbolic of allowing the Christ Consciousness within you to be born; or, more accurately, it is symbolic of allowing yourself to awaken to the Christ Consciousness that is already there. This Christ Consciousness—this Consciousness of God within you—is what Jesus is talking about in many of his “secret” teachings, such as, “Whoever loses his life for my sake shall find it.” In that teaching Christ Consciousness is speaking through Jesus, and simply pointing out that if you want to be truly alive, you must give up your sense of a personal ego for the sake of the Christ Consciousness within you. Only then will you find the true purpose of your soul. And in living your soul’s purpose, you will find lasting happiness and fulfillment in life.
