The Christ Is Not A Person

( 7 )

Overview

Why are we born? For what purpose are we here?

The longer we are unaware of what is taking place within us — of what drives us and what can liberate us from the bonds of egocentric behavior — the longer we allow what the Buddha called the sorrow of life to hold sway. The sorrow of life is the sum and consequence of our total identification with the world of self.

The word Consciousness means something more than what the mind of self thinks, ...

Overview

Why are we born? For what purpose are we here?

The longer we are unaware of what is taking place within us — of what drives us and what can liberate us from the bonds of egocentric behavior — the longer we allow what the Buddha called the sorrow of life to hold sway. The sorrow of life is the sum and consequence of our total identification with the world of self.

The word Consciousness means something more than what the mind of self thinks, imagines, or conceives. Awareness in Pure Consciousness is an awareness that is beyond self. Contrary to traditional thinking, the so-called unseen, unknown world is nothing more than Consciousness of which we are unaware. Unawareness in Consciousness has been evolving into Awareness in Consciousness since before time began.

The author of this work comprehensively sets forth a meaning of ancient scripture that likely has not been advanced to you before. He demystifies ancient legends and myths so that the essential truth of ancient teachings shines through. Using ancient scripture as a guide, he insightfully explores a growing conscious awareness that has emerged within mankind over the last few thousand years.

A must read for anyone looking to discover the deeper meaning of ancient scripture beyond a literal interpretation of the words.

    A Profound and Beautiful Work

    This is such an incredible book I hardly know where to begin. I've always sensed that there was more to the Bible and other ancient teachings than what is customarily taught from the Christian point of view, and this book opened my mind and heart to what that "more" truly is. Breathing new life into ancient teachings, the author makes them once again relevant in our own lives today. After separating the wheat from the chaff, he reveals with great clarity how conciousness is the motivating force behind all creation and how the process of evolution is leading us, as human beings, into a cosmic awareness of who we truly are and why we are here. He points out how all profound spiritual teachings are at their core, one and the same. Much like enlightened masters of antiquity who spoke truth in their time, the author's words speak truth in our time, and that truth speaks directly to the spirit within. Truly a remarkable work, I highly recommend it to any and all, regardless of religious background or traditional systemm of belief.

    A Watershed Work

    J.C. Tefft has written the most comprehensive, insightful book I've ever read concerning the deeper truths of profound ancient scripture. I have never been drawn to orthodox religious beliefs and practices, but at the same time I've always found ancient scripture difficult to navigate. J.C. changed all that. His writing style and organization are eminently readable and understandable. In the past, I had completely missed many of the metphysical meanings that are expressed in scripture. While J.C. demystifies ancient legend and myth, he simultaneously shines an abundance of light on the true meaning of ancient, spiritual teachings that are often overlooked and misunderstood. I genuinely believe that this book may well prove to be a watershed work for mankind. I can't recommmend it enough. If I could give it ten stars, I would. Nancy K. - Fellow Spiritual Seeker
