      In your answer to the Christ question and the influence of the Buddha- are you then suggesting that the work of the Buddha from Mars (as he rays back His compassion and forces) is the new way to bridge the gap to Christ for the majority who cannot approach Him yet? It would seem that that "something" is happening along these lines with the rise of Zen and Buddhism in the West at present. Yet, one can and will find the same "mistakes" common to traditional Buddhism- the elimination and lack of clarity concering "the ego" and  I Am. Buddhists still contend that ego is a transparent and temporary psychological and social construct and during deep meditation and eventually Satori, all vestiages fo the ego are transcended or passed through. Only Being exists or better yet non Being and just Existence. This all occurs within a vaccum so to speak, that is, within the confines of personal consciousness. Yet, this glimpse of one aspect of the Divine or True reality bypasses the eternal I Am, it seems. Thus, Buddhism in its present form is working against the consciousness soul, it would seem.

      Valentina,

      Thanks for this important reference. Nevertheless, the veiled nature of Christ's probable work and inspiration through these cases still does not suggest direct contact with the Risen Christ. Most if not all Eastern sources you mention, and others, are still unable to identify the Christ and His mission objectivity. I think the problem may lie in the nature of training and conscioiusness work in the Eastern schools and a predispostion towards inwardness. God is sought by going within not without (into the spirtual worlds directly) when one awakens from within it may be like sitting in a bubble (the body and soul) and looking out as through a 360 window. Being able to willfully travel or explore spiritual realms is not the intention-  "self Realization" and resting in the Divine as It is, is the prime goal.

      The only issue that remains: why are there not more cross cultural confirmations of content of AP and esoteric Christianity.
