“Jesus is not a resident of Nirvana. He has the power to visit here in etheric body, to instruct, to nurture and heal, but he doesn’t remain long at any one visit. He is everywhere in lighted space throughout this universe, although not known by the name Jesus–or Emmanuel, his given name. Although he often is referred to on Earth as Jesus Christ, Christ is not pat of his name, but rather designates his Christed beingness. Christ is not a proper name. It means “being one with God,” and it is just as correct to say “Buddha the Christ” as it is to say “Jesus the Christ.”
Jesus is a creation of God and the Christed energy, that is most pure, loving and high angelic station closest to Creator. The Christed energy is supremely respected and is all-powerful throughout this universe. Jesus’ influence, benevolence and inspiration are needed in higher echelons as well as here, and they are very greatly needed on Earth. His message as perceived there is so limited that it is a dreadful travesty because his abilities in evidence of God’s power and love are so much more profound than are attributed to him.
That same God fragment who embodied as Jesus has incarnated in other Earth lifetimes throughout human history. One such personage was Buddha, whose followers have kept his message more intact than Christianity’s adherents have kept the message of Jesus. Other embodiments of the Christed energy have appeared in human form in other planetary systems, but not in the same religious leader status as Jesus and other major personages of Earth religions.”
