H.P. Blavatsky on Christ -- the true esoteric SAVIOR

"...'The coming of Christ,' means the presence of CHRISTOS in a
regenerated world, and not at all the actual coming in body
of 'Christ' Jesus....Christ -- the true esoteric SAVIOR -- is no man,
but the DIVINE PRINCIPLE in every human being. He who strives to
resurrect the Spirit crucified in him by his own terrestrial
passions, and buried deep in the 'sepulcher' of his sinful flesh; he
who has the strength to roll back the stone of matter from the door
of his own inner sanctuary, he has the risen Christ in him...."

"The 'Christ principle,' the awakened and glorified Spirit of Truth,
being universal and eternal, the true Christos cannot be monopolized
by any one person [or church or religion]....We may learn from the
Gospel according to Luke, that the 'worthy' were those who had been
initiated into the mysteries of the Gnosis, and who were 'accounted
worthy' to attain that 'resurrection from the dead' in this
life....In other words, they were the great adepts of whatever
religion; and the words apply to all those who, without being
Initiates, strive and succeed, through personal efforts to live the
life and to attain the naturally ensuing spiritual illumination in
blending their personality -- (the 'Son') with (the 'Father,') their
individual divine Spirit, the God within them. This 'resurrection'
can never be monopolized by the Christians, but is the spiritual
birth-right of every human being endowed with soul and spirit,
whatever his religion may be. Such individual is a Christ-man. On the
other hand, those who choose to ignore the Christ (principle) within
themselves, must die unregenerate heathens -- baptism, sacraments,
lip-prayers, and belief in [Christian] dogmas notwithstanding.... He
who finds Christos within himself and recognizes the latter as his
only 'way,' becomes a follower and an Apostle of Christ, though he
may have never been baptized, nor even have met a 'Christian,' still
less call himself one."
