By the time we actually are able to forget ourselves enough to “cling” to Christ, there is no need…
we just ARE and we allow Christ to be within us —
and we allow ourself to be [within] Christ.
Self-forgetting is the motion of striving toward clinging only to Christ —
not through stories, books, passion, or proselytization;
but through “seeing” the constant swirling of “self” (including even consciousness) arise out of and return to the dynamic process of embodied divinity.
Jesus gives a picture;
Christ gives the Way;
Spirit gives “inspiration” and energy;
God gives Ultimate Mystery and eternally-receding horizons.
