Awaken The Power of the Inner Christ
There are principally four inner voices used to talk, to communicate one with the other. Now this is noticeable that there is a part of you which speaks with excitement at the possibility of becoming someone of importance, or at the possibility of indulging some great thing. We’ll call this portion for the moment, “the unbridled child-self”. On the other side of the mind which is much, much stronger, there is a parental teacher, a tutor-determined self. They both are parts of you; both parts work in a way of speaking one to the other. And the teaching face of yourself is often, very often in this case, angry and punitive with the little child, who you feel must be held in respect, particularly self-respect.
Now, the other two voices we have mentioned is as if you could see the earth line on which the child and the parent within you stands. Now, draw a crosspiece from Heaven to Hell to complete your diagram, and know that whatever the communication is between the two sides of yourself – the child and parent – what is said can only be taken from one or the other of these two perpendicular selves. We’ve referred to one as Hell. Everything below that line, that is, the line of earth, everything below it, is characterized by fear, punishment, attempts to restrict and hold old blaming memories. Now it is from this triangle, from parent to child, and downward to Hell and back up then, this triangle, is what is called “living in Hell” now at the present.
The great Master said, “You may now, this day, be with me in the Kingdom of God, in the Presence of God. You can at this moment open yourself to Christ Consciousness.” Now, the difficulty in doing that has been your training in society as you grow. You are taught to strengthen the parent and to dismiss the inner child, which is, for example, the source of the lack of ability of adults to play.
Now, supposing you became aware that this vertical line on the diagram represents the only two sources in the Universe that you can get energy for communication from. All energy in this Universe is basically love and fear. Love being at the top of the diagram and fear in Hell below. Now be aware of a doctrine that is this simple, which says: all of your thoughts, impulses, actions, feelings, come from where your habits dominate the direction of your intention and interest. When every thought is a thought of, “How will I hurt myself today? How will I make a fool of myself? How will I strike others?” All these are fear-based questions. If instead you could begin a day with triangulating a conversation with the Christ – let it be described in this manner:
Become as aware as you can become from this communication. Be aware of the child within you, a vulnerable child who needs warmth and love, who needs acceptance and even encouragement, and the other side of yourself is a bit dictatorial, parental, a teacher, finding things wrong with the child. Now, for as long as these two sides of yourself don’t love one another, which is the situation that you are in right now, be sure of it, when these two sides of yourself neither love nor trust one another, one hundred per cent of your communication, your inner thought is coming directly from Hell, the lower triangle, which has as its top, Child-self on the left, Adult-self on the right, and Hell below. All thoughts that come from below the earth level are the thoughts of Hell, they are characterized by fear, and in fact, it is fear that controls all actions and thoughts during a period of anxiety. Being one with God, being in harmony with God does not and will not produce anxiety. If there are any energies in and about you which do cause anxiety, then turn your eyes, turn your thoughts to Living Love. Living Love is at once the manifestation of God on Earth, and is at the same time Christ within you. And the method for talking with, communicating with the Christ, even in rather ordinary conversation can occur when you notice that every thought, every thought that you think, that makes yourself less worthwhile as an individual, self-criticism, fears of being around others, all these things are things created in Hell. Bring your thoughts to a point in which you may love yourself, even your body. Love and accept your thoughts and your feelings. Allow yourself to become an extraordinary, attractive person.
Begin to stand tall feeling a love for your own self and communicating an aura of love, vitality, even such as would suggest that you are having fun, enjoying life. Now as you do that, you will encounter hundreds, perhaps thousands of individuals both in your own country and perhaps others who suffer from the anxieties that you held about yourself. We are suggesting that you be so successful in metamorphosis of yourself that you can become an example and a teacher. You will have important experiences to draw upon to assist others through their negative self-image problems. But begin as soon as you begin to feel better, and notice that the changes about yourself, reach out and cause others to move from Hell to Heaven.
