Metaphysical Meaning of Words
Used in Individual Chart No. II-B
Spirit.—That part of man which enables him to be self-conscious. That which he really is. We do not see the spirit of man any more than we see the Spirit of God. We see what man does; but we do not see the doer.
Christ, Logos.—The Word of God manifest in and through man. In a liberal sense the Christ means the Entire Manifestation of God and is, therefore, the Second Person of the Trinity. Christ is a Universal Idea, and each one "Puts on The Christ" to the degree that he surrenders a limited sense of Life to the Divine Realization.
Sonship.—We are all Sons of God and all partake of the Divine Nature.
Microcosm.—The individual world as distinguished from the Universal.
Emmanuel.-God-with-us.—Means that Christ is in every one.
Personality.—The external evidence of individualized being.
Individuality.—Each one is a separate identity in Mind and no two are alike. Each is an Individualized Center of God-Consciousness. Our personality is the use that we make of our Divine Individuality.
Conscious-State.—The conscious-state is the self-knowing mind of man. It is the only thing that distinguishes him from brute creation. Without a conscious-state of mind man would not be at all; or, at least, he would not know that he is. The conscious mind should be carefully guarded, as it is the real man.
Mental.—Means that man is mentally conscious.
Spiritual.—Means that man is a Spiritual Being.
