The Reappearance of the Christ - Chapter V - The Teachings of the Christ
Within the world of glamor - the world of the astral plane and of the emotions - appeared, centuries ago, a point of light; the Lord of Light, the Buddha, undertook [133] to focus in Himself the illumination which would eventually make possible the dissipation of glamor. Within the world of illusion, the world of the mental plane, appeared the Christ, the Lord of Love Himself. He undertook to dispel illusion by drawing to Himself (by the attractive potency of love) the hearts of all men, and stated this determination in the words, "I, if I be lifted up, will draw all men unto Me." (John XII, 32.)

The combined work of these two great Sons of God, concentrated through the world disciples and through Their initiates must and will inevitably shatter illusion and dispel glamor - the one by the intuitive recognition of reality by minds attuned to it, and the other by the pouring in of the light of the reason. The Buddha made the first planetary effort to dissipate world glamor; the Christ made the first planetary effort towards the dispelling of illusion. Their work must now be intelligently carried forward by a humanity wise enough to recognize its duty.

Men are being rapidly disillusioned and will consequently see more clearly. World glamor is being steadily removed from the ways of men. Those two developments have been brought about by the incoming new ideas, focused through the world intuitives and released to the general public by the world thinkers. It is also largely aided by the unconscious, but none the less real, recognition by the masses of the true meaning of these Four Noble Truths. Disillusioned and deglamored (if I may use such a term) humanity awaits the coming revelation. This revelation will be brought about by the combined efforts of the Buddha and the Christ. All that we can foresee or foretell anent that revelation is that some potent and far-reaching results will be achieved by the merging of light and love, and by the reaction of "lighted [134] substance" to "the attractive power of love." I have here given a clue to the true understanding of the work of these Avatars - a thing hitherto quite unrealized. It might be added that when an appreciation of the meaning of the words "transfiguration of a human being" is gained, the realization will come that when "the body is full of light" (Luke XI, 36.) then "in Thy light shall we see light." (Ps. XXXVI, 9.) This means that when the personality has reached a point of purification, of dedication and of illumination, then the attractive power of the soul, whose nature is love and understanding, can function, and fusion of these two will take place. This is what the Christ proved and demonstrated.

When the work of the Buddha (or of the embodied wisdom principle) is consummated in the aspiring disciple and his integrated personality, then the full expression of the work of the Christ (the embodied principle of love) can also be consummated then both of these potencies - Light and Love - will find radiant expression in the transfigured disciple. What is true, therefore, of the individual is true also of humanity as a whole; today humanity (having reached maturity) can "enter into realization" and consciously take part in the work of enlightenment and of spiritual, loving activity. The practical effects of this process will be the dissipation of glamor and the release of the human spirit from the thralldom of matter; it will produce also the dispelling of illusion and the recognition of the truth as it exists in the consciousness of those who are polarized in the awareness of the Christ.

This is necessarily no rapid process; it is an ordered and regulated procedure, sure in its eventual success but relatively slow also in its establishment and sequential process. This process was initiated upon the astral plane [135] by the Buddha, and on the mental plane when Christ manifested on Earth. It indicated the approaching maturity of humanity. The process has been slowly gathering momentum as these two great Beings have gathered around Them Their disciples and initiates, during the past two thousand years. It has reached a point of intensive usefulness as the channel of communication between "the Center where the Will of God is known," and the Hierarchy where the Love of God demonstrates has been opened and enlarged, and the contact between these two great centers and humanity has been more firmly established.

Thus thousands of intelligent men and women will be enabled to free themselves from all delusion and emotional control. The moment that the hearts of men are active, that moment sees the termination of emotional, solar plexus activity. That is a statement of fact; it is the hearts of men which respond to the call of Christ and it is those hearts which are becoming invocative today. The agonizing emotional cycle through which humanity has passed during the past one hundred years, and the emotional tension in which men today live are also playing their part in fitting humanity to emerge into the realm of clear thought; this will mark a significant turning point in human history and will be one of the results of Christ's future scientific work (if I may use this term) with the hearts of men, bringing them into rapport with the Heart of God.

Because of the magnitude of this theme and the wide extent of the psychological area in which the mass of men now live, I cannot further enlarge. This field of experience and of trial is well known to all aspirants and is the battlefield of millions. The Christ within, as the Controller of the individual life, can bring that battle to [136] an end; the aspirant can emerge clear sighted and unafraid. The appearance of the Christ among men will do the same thing for humanity as a whole, not in any vicarious sense but through the livingness of His Presence, stimulating the Christ principle in every human heart. [137]
