According to Charles Fillmore, The Christ is Consciousness itself:

“We have no independent mind; there is only universal Mind, but we have consciousness in that mind and we have… control over our own thoughts, and our thoughts make up our consciousness. By analyzing ourselves, we find that we unconsciously separate ourselves into different personalities. We should do this work consciously. We should enter into the understanding that the I AM power is given to us in consciousness, and then join or unify that consciousness with the great Christ Mind.” Charles Fillmore

 

We Want to Avoid Dualism:

1. The state of being dual or consisting of two parts; division into two.

2.Philosophy. The view that there are just two mutually irreducible substances. Compare monism, pluralism.

the view that substances are either material or mental.

3.Theology. The doctrine that there are two independent divine beings or eternal principles, one good and the other evil.

The belief that a human being embodies two parts, as body and soul.

 

The Christ is the realization of Altruism and the Golden Rule:

The belief in or practice of disinterested and selfless concern for the well-being of others.
