Art Church: The Cosmic Christ

The Christ principle of connectedness and divine enlightenment includes three levels of incarnation:

Christ as the physical incarnation, the story of Jesus of Nazereth
Christ Consciousness, a principle of God Realization
The Cosmic Christ, a vision of the body of Lord Jesus as the Supreme Personality of Godhead.

Each generation re-imagines the archetype of Christ. Lifting sin unburdens the soul. Christ is the remedy for sin, the healing scapegoat that soaks up karmic damage. Christ can transform your existence with his touch, the blessing power of a spiritual master, the embodied presence of Holiness. In identifying with the Cosmic Christ, it is possible to unburden ourselves from negative self-images and forgive all others and ourselves for any actions that might have offended God, our own highest aspirations. Alex will describe his painting “Cosmic Christ,” and the “garment of destiny” comprising so many stories of humanity.

The original work, “Cosmic Christ” by Alex Grey is present in the gallery to highlight the discussion.
