statement as a statement of Jesus the Man, rather than as a statement of the Christ. This misinterpretation has led to proselytizing, which has led to a lack of acknowledgment of other people's ways of meeting (attaining) the Christ other than through the form of Jesus.
Jesus was the Man, Christ was his attainment. Siddhartha Gautama was the Man, Nirvana was his attainment.
In Greek terms, an enlightened or God realized person has obtained the "golden fleece," i.e., Christconsciousness and He is called a Son Zeus (God).
"Come to me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give REST," i.e., by attaining what I have attained also, you will attain God-self-realization and forever "REST" in that state, even after the physical body dies.
Attain Christhood as I have done and you will be free of the torment of the psychological ego.
-Jesus, Matt. 11:28
How does one attain Christhood as Jesus did? Meditation.
Not that anyone has seen the Father, except He who is from God; He has seen the Father, i.e., IT TAKES ONE TO KNOW ONE).
-Jesus, John .6:46
