2 "In Christ we not only discover the centre or ground of our being, but we also find a meeting point with all other men and with the whole world of nature." Christ in India: Essays Towards a Hindu-Christian Dialogue (Bede Griffiths)

3 "Christ saw that in each person divinity and humanity met – and that man survived death by virtue of his existence within the divine." The Individual and the Nature of Mass Events (Jane Roberts)

4 "Christ cared only that people should recognize that God is love, that all are the children of the one Father, and, therefore brothers; that humanity's spirit is eternal and that there is no death; He longed that the Christ within everyone (the innate Christ consciousness which makes us one with each other and with Christ) should flower forth in all its glory; He taught that service was the keynote of the spiritual life and that the will of God would be revealed." Problems of Humanity (Alice A. Bailey)

5 "The conversion to Christ need not entail a conversion to the Christian religion. The word is a symbol for the Child of God within us, our true identity and a space of remembrance of all that is divine. To be His disciple is to take on the mantle of His ministry by refusing to acknowledge the ultimate reality of any walls that divide us." The Gift of Change, Spiritual Guidance for a Radically New Life (Marianne Williamson)

6 "He will come to restore man's faith in the Father's love, in the fact of the livingness of the Christ and in the close, subjective and unbreakable relationship of all men everywhere. The facilities of the entire world of contact and relation will be at His disposal; that will be part of the uniqueness of His opportunity." The Reappearance of the Christ (Alice A. Bailey)

7 "The major impulse driving the Christ towards special work was the desire to establish right human relations; it is also the desire – realized or unrealised – of humanity, and we know that some day the Desire of all nations will come, that right human relations will be found everywhere and that goodwill will implement that fulfillment, leading to peace in all lands and among all peoples." The Destiny of the Nations (Alice A. Bailey)

8 "Jesus saw and knew that the entire creation was alive with Godhead; he saw and knew that at the core of human consciousness lay a spark of divine consciousness in which the glory of the Godhead is always reflected and which is one with the Godhead." Son of Man, The Mystical Path to Christ (Andrew Harvey)

9 “On the cross, Jesus’ immortal plea as recorded in Luke 23:34 was ‘Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.’…He made no exception for those who had wrongfully abused him; theirs too was the promise of heaven.” Lives of the Masters: The Rest of the Jesus Story (Glen Sanderfur)

10 “The voice of Jesus is, verily, the voice of the eternal being. Through Him is expressed the call of the infinite to the finite, the call of the cosmic being to the individual, the call of God to man. His divine voice is the same, therefore, as the voice of the Vedas and Upanishads, the voice of the Koran, the Zendavesta, Dharmapada and all such scriptures of the great religions of the world.” Janet Bock, ‘The Jesus Mystery’ Lives of the Masters: The Rest of the Jesus Story (Glen Sanderfur)

11 "Jesus, not unlike many spiritual teachers, taught us that we are sons and daughters of God and are to act accordingly by becoming instruments of divine compassion." A New Reformation: Creation Spirituality and the Transformation of Christianity (Matthew Fox)

13 "Everything that came from Jesus's lips worked like a magnifying glass to focus human awareness on the two most important facts about life: God's overwhelming love of humanity, and the need for people to accept that love and let it flow through them in the way water passes without obstruction through a sea anemone." The Soul of Christianity: Restoring the Great Tradition (Huston Smith)

16 "This new mind awaits us in this next stage of our evolutionary journey. We are being challenged by the forces of history to grow into this mind, to mutate, as it were, in order for our species to survive. Jesus had the new mind, called in him the Christ Mind, as did Buddha and others. It is the mind when it is overshadowed by God, our mind when it has become one with His, when we have touched the heavenly light and been permanently altered by it. This state of enlightenment is the exaltation of our existence, the uplifting of our human consciousness to such a high place that we manifest, at last, as the children of God we truly are." The Gift of Change, Spiritual Guidance for a Radically New Life (Marianne Williamson)

17 "Jesus proclaimed the single, essential, transforming reality: God really is, and He is here, near and within." In Silence: Why We Pray (Donald Spoto, Ph.D.)

18 "Christ is the Beloved Master, brother, friend and unconditional lover in the words of his last, new commandment: '….that you love one another, as I have loved you.'" Alchemy, The Art of Transformation (Jay Ramsay)

19 "Jesus Christ belonged to the true race of prophets. He saw with open eyes the mystery of the soul. Drawn by its severe harmony, ravished with its beauty, he lived in it, and had his being there....He was true to what is in you and me. He saw that God incarnates himself in man, and evermore goes forth anew to take possession of his World." Essays, Poems, Addresses (Ralph W Emerson)

22 "The Christ incarnation had a momentous purpose, a divine teleology that encompasses the entire life of the cosmos." The Imagination of Pentecost: Rudolf Steiner & Contemporary Spirituality (Richard Leviton)

23 "The Cosmic Christ is the crucified and suffering one in every creature, just as much as the Cosmic Christ is the radiant one, the divine glistening and glittering in every creature." The Coming of the Cosmic Christ (Matthew Fox)

24 "It is Christ himself, in the very depths of our being, who seeks to be born and grow greater in our bodies and souls." Science and Christ (Pierre Teilhard deChardin)
