Christ Consciousness

I grew up in a traditional Christian home and learned to both love and fear Jesus according to what was said at the pulpit. I learned to respect the ten commandments of Moses and all of the many mysteries of Jesus (Yeshua, in Hebrew and Aramaic). I also learned many of the psalms, proverbs, the Lord’s Prayer, the Catholic Rosary and the Orthodox Jesus Prayer. Still, there was something missing, because Christianity generally condemned and continues to condemn other paths and belief systems. When I finally learned about OM meditation, I experienced firsthand that God is OM and that we can experience God through this divine and holy sound. Also, after some digging, I finally came to learn that OM is the original language-sound root of contemporary words and ideas like Amen, I am, One, Omega, Shalom, Omniscience, Omnipresence, and Omnipotence – all words used to describe God or connect with God in some way. The picture above shows that Jesus is a true being of Divine Light and Divine Sound, and hence He is OM. One yogi explained it to me this way: God is Being. From Being comes Light and from Light comes Sound. So, we first chant OM and meditate on OM. Then, OM takes us to the realm of Light (Light of Christ, as shown above). Then, Light takes us to Being (Christ takes us to God the Father, in Christian terminology). So, rest assured, that Christ Consciousness is totally addressed and experienced in OM meditation. For those of you still doubtful, check out Holy Science by Swami Sri Yukteswar, the guru of legendary Kriya Yoga Master Paramahansa Yogananda. Om and Amen. Namaste.
