The Intimate Christ
Christ is the Fire of the fire, the Flame of the flame, the Astral Signature of fire.
Upon the cross of the martyr of Calvary, the mystery of Christ is defined in one word, consisting of four letters: INRI - Ignis, Natura, Renovatur Integra - Fire Renews Nature Unceasingly.
The Advent of Christ into the heart of the human being transforms us radically.
Christ is the Solar Logos, the Perfect Multiple Unity. Christ is life which beats throughout the entire universe. Christ is what is, what always has been, and what shall always be.
Much has been said about the Cosmic Drama; without a question, this drama is made up of four Gospels.
We have been told that the Cosmic Drama was brought to Earth by the Elohim. The great Lord of Atlantis acted out that drama in flesh and bone.
The great Kabir Jesus also had to play out the same drama publicly in the Holy Land.
Even if Christ were to be born a thousand times in Bethlehem, it would serve no purpose if he were not born within our hearts as well.
Although he died and was resurrected on the third day among the dead, this serves no purpose if he does not die and resurrect within our hearts as well.
To attempt to discover the nature and essence of fire is to try to discover God whose real presence has always been revealed secretly as an igneous aspect.
The burning bush (Exodus 3:2) and the fire at Sinai immediately after the issuances of the Decalogue (Exodus 19:18) are both manifestations in which God appeared to Moses.
Saint John describes the Master of the universe (Revelation 4: 3, 5) as one who had the appearance of jasper and sardine stone, the color of a flame, seated on an incandescent and shining Throne.
“For our God is a consuming fire,” writes Saint Paul in his Epistle to the Hebrews 12:29.
The Intimate Christ, the Heavenly Fire, must be born within us and, indeed, He is born when we have advanced sufficiently in the psychological work.
From our psychological nature, the Intimate Christ must eliminate the very causes of error, the Causal “I’s.”
As long as the Intimate Christ has not been born within us, the dissolution of the causes of the ego would not be possible.
The Living and Philosophical Fire, the Intimate Christ, is the Fire of the Fire, the Purest of the Pure.
Fire envelopes and bathes us totally; it comes to us through the air, through water, and through the earth itself. These are its preservers and its diverse vehicles.
The Heavenly Fire must crystallize within us. It is the Intimate Christ, our profound innermost Savior.
The Intimate Lord must take charge of our psyche, the five cylinders of the organic machine, all of our mental, emotional, motor, instinctual, and sexual processes.
