TEMPTATION TO THE ADVANCED INDIVIDUAL – 1
The Christ is the manifestation of Truth, and this Truth came not to destroy but to fulfill the law of Life and to perfectly realize all of its manifestations.
Christ, Truth, healed the sick of the palsy, and when healed, the patient walked. Christ did not come to remove the individual from human sight, for, as the Scriptures say: — “He, Truth, came to the flesh to restore all things.”
The following will illustrate this thought: Let us suppose that a certain individual has come nearer to the understanding of God and man than any other human being. Let us suppose that this individual could, without fear or hindrance, pass through the human phase of living, up to the divine Life, which has no beginning and no ending.
