Belief can work both ways.. lets not forget.

For you may believe in the "i am Christ" philosophy as many others would believe in the "i am the son of Satan" philosophy..

Belief can be placed into any idea and thus power that idea.. that is why i would say for you to place your belief in your said idea is an extreme action.

You may think you know what you are talking about and you may put things very eloquently and articulately but to think you are Christ when you have not walked in his shoes for even a moment is in itself to many a religious folk, an act of blasphemy.


I do not believe in the I Am Christ Philosophy, I simply see it as an alternative to He, or Some external person is Christ, i.e "hero worship" which leaves the individual impotent to help either themself or others. I may be totally wrong about the whole idea and if I am, so be it, I will look at it another way! However, the advantage of this philosophy is that your mind does not get held to ransom by the ego, as it is with all religions and ideologies! Once your mind is held to ransom by a belief, which resides in your ego, you have stopped being yourself and have turned into a clone of another person, who is themself, a clone of another and so on! Have I walked in Christ's shoes, yes I have! We all have, as suffering, enlightenment and death and resurrection are all relative symbols, expirenced by everyone, at some point in thier life!

"In a nutshell, the “I am Christ philosophy” describes a way thinking, independent from the belief system. It symbolizes a kind of cognitive freedom, a freedom which enables the individual to stand on their own feet and travel free, without the leading strings of belief imposing masters. It enunciates a type of holistic thinking and being, or unified consciousness described by Jung as "individuation." Most importantly, it represents true mental freedom!"

It sounds more like the serpent in Eden ".... ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil." Your words above could have been the serpents next words... Smooth sounding... But trickery.








Firstly, I am not out to decieve anyone, I will leave that to religionists, like Chrysostom and Luther and other CHrisitans who all promoted lying as a means of persuading people to join in their litte trance!

Finally, in the words of Robert G. Ingersoll; "Give me the storm and tempest of thought and action rather than the dead calm of ignorance and faith, evict me from Eden when you will, but first let me eat from the tree of knowledge"

[color=7A7A7A]My brain has not yet fully awakened this morning, so that could be a factor, but I don't really think that it is.


What are you talking about?

What is the point? To spark a heated discussion and/or controversy?

I would like to kindly ask, you, and all peoples whom are simillar to you... to stop argueing with, and insulting people, simply because you dont understand what they have said/wrote...
[ it makes me tired, to read pointless criticism, that holds no merit, or logic...]

Thanks for the support.

Sounds a tad egotistical and deluded to me.

You are not God, Satan or even Napoleon Bonaparte. Are you Chris(t) or Sherlock, you seem a little confused?

Here, try this nice comfy dinner jacket with sleeves that strap around the back. We have a lovely plushly decorated room just for you, everything soft and padded!

Yes, religion, Christ, God, belief....all tools used to control the masses. The oldest form of control and government.

I don't have imaginary friends anymore.


What would you do if the imaginary friends suddenly told you they where there? Kinda hard to ignore them when you get proof for yourself of their existance. Yes, the way the religon is used by the powerpyramid is for control. But the truth behind religon that religon/science is trying to explain is in fact revolutionary against the powerpyramid. Spirituality is the way from my point of view to understand it all. Religon is for those who fear. Spirituality is for those who have conqured their fear. The witches had to die because they knew to much. Namaste


I really like what you have said here, it interests me very much!

Seems you have received plenty of ad hominems from those who have failed to grasp your premise.

"So in this idea, then, everybody is fundamentally the ultimate reality. Not God in a politically kingly sense, but God in the sense of being the self, the deep-down basic whatever there is. And you're all that, only you're pretending you're not. And it's perfectly OK to pretend you're not, to be perfectly convinced, because this is the whole notion of drama. "

--Alan Watts

FYI, Campbell taught at Sarah Lawrence College (my alma mater) for almost 40 years. He may well have taught some classes at Princeton, too (SLC and Princeton have a lot of ties and nearly merged back in the 1960's), but SLC was his primary teaching home.

My thoughts are that youre playing to the crowd to get stars for your own glory, because you're more or less parroting the same ethics humanists and neo-platonism does with their greek philosophies.

Thank you OP for a thought provoking thread! People pray to this God up in the clouds to make them healthy, rich, employed, married and whatever else people ask the magic genie for. This has created a mentality that does not reinforce the power of self, the power that we all have to change our reality. We have all heard of the saying "let go and let God", I believe that's why we have so many people collecting welfare and sitting on the couch all day! They are waiting for God to answer all their prayers. If you realize the power that each one of us has over our own destiny than many many more people would be living up to a higher standard. Take your power back, you are a God, we all are!

Yadda Yadda Yadda..

I wish you would come up with your own thoughts for once..

Everything is an idea inside the mind.. evil and a carrot cake... then nothing is real and everything is nothing.
So pretentious honestly and to call me a douche when you don't even know me.. that is a sure sign of ignorance on your behalf!


perception of a carrot surely has neural processing behind it, but the carrot exist outside of you. Evil doesn't. And no you proved your douchehood in your first post mocking a youngsters mind.

Wrong. This is just making an observation. I can judge you if you wish, but i'd rather not.

Dude, you rock.

I completely agree with you. I believe Philosophy was finally snuffed in the minds of men and women when someone turned it in to a subject for literary analysis; and it stuck.

The stuff is not meant to be analyzed for it's literary merits, it is meant to catalyze the Dialectic so that it becomes a living thing inside the Philosopher.

Thank you for your post. You did a really good job of explaining the predicament in only two paragraphs.

X.

I'm with you! I just finished listening to The Disappearance of the Universe audiobook. It made a lot of sense to me. The idea is that this universe is basically something like a dream (experiment?) the central God-mind is having. For this process, parts of the one "mind" (for lack of a better term) immersed itself in duality, dividing into more and more interacting parts. Since as individuals we are all constructed of those parts, we have forgotten (both due to the circumstances and also due to manipulations from individuals who have forgotten even more than most of us have) that we are all really one, experiencing something akin to an internal dialog. The quicker we can stop judging, forgive everyone and everything, and become totally aware of our oneness, the quicker we can achieve a peaceful and enlightened existence.

So yes, we are all Christ, or whatever you prefer to call it - beings with no need for fear and hate, and all the other addictions, brainwashing and bad decisions life throws our way. The potential is there within each of us if we can just get our heads screwed on straight. Meanwhile, while waiting for the rest of the crowd, we can work towards this on an individual level. Indeed this is a necessary first step before the mass of humanity can join together in peace, love and prosperity. The internet is starting to play a huge part in developing this potential, not to mention exposing the plots and cults that have suppressed our well-being throughout known history.

I like to "put on hats" of different ideas and world views, just to see how they fit and feel. This one feels very right to me. Personally I'm hoping that the phase that we are moving into (i.e., 2012, etc.) is the beginning of remembering the wholeness of which we are all parts, and throwing off some of the ridiculous and cruel decisions and activities that mankind has indulged since we first arrived in this place!

Choosing what to do with your life does not make you God. It was written, you are gods, but there is only one God, and it ain't you. Using your own flame for light will always burn out!

And to the OP.

"For many will come in my name, claiming, 'I am the Christ,' and will deceive many. Problem is, this is the internet so your only deceiving yourself. Hey, no pun intended, I used to think like you myself... til some crazy stuff happened to me.

Hey, peace and love and all that stuff, but the Truth stands forever.

The flame that gives rise to the individual is god. The source of our being is god. The self or "i" is maya

Then let me rephrase the flame for your maya will be snuffed if you don't find the source... and drink it.

The title of this thread, ‘I am Christ’, although sounding like the rant of a deluded mind, is in fact, a profound notion. A notion that has the power to end wars, famine, inequality and the manipulation, which has been the cornerstone of both religion and politics. This philosophy, which I have termed‘I am Christ’, is not of my own contrivance, but dates back to a time before the alleged advent of Christ himself. Philosophers like Socrates and Plato propagated this ancient idea, along with more modern scholars like, Jiddu Krishnamurti, Carl Gustav Jung, Wilhelm Reich, Albert Einstein and the late professor of mythology at Princeton University, Joseph Campbell, to name just a few.

Although it is an exceptionally useful way of thinking, it is frightening to those malign shepherds who have been at the helm of the sinking ship of humanity, since time immemorial. As a result of the threat posed by this idea, the heads of both religion and politics have released a virus into the minds of the many. In so doing, they have ensured that this philosophy is denied the opportunity to take root amongst the masses. This virus has continued to ensure our masters' ill-gotten power over us. We have given this virus the harmless and innocent name,‘belief.’ Yet, it is far from harmless and has been the favored tool of the malevolent in fomenting disorder and chaos amongst an otherwise intelligent species. Should we be freed from this cognitive prison, the balance of power between the masses and the elites would shift, toppling the naked emperors that have subjugated humanity since the deliberate spread of this mental and emotional plague!

your thoughts!

Christ was tortured...Crucified....speared then slowly sufficated to death. I would say although many may think this to be an example...I consider it an example of what to avoid. Split Infinity
