      DHCibc> I am somewhat surprised that there have been so few comments from
      DHCibc> Bailey students on what Blavatsky said about "Christ" as compared to
      DHCibc> what Bailey wrote about "Christ".

      DHCibc> Alice Bailey's version is what I would consider a "CRUDE literalism."
      DHCibc> What HPB characterizes as "a dead letter belief."

      The dead and the living are not only in the world, in the eye of the
      reader.

      I offer below some quotations that add more more perspective than the
      ones you selected.

      Best Regards,

      James

      "As I have earlier pointed out, the return of Christ will be
      expressed, in the first place, by an upsurging of the Christ
      consciousness in the hearts of men everywhere; its first expression
      will be goodwill."

      ****

      "In the second place, disciples everywhere will find themselves
      increasingly sensitive to his quality, his voice and his teaching;
      they will be "over-shadowed" by him in many cases, just as before, he
      over-shadowed his disciple Jesus; through this over-shadowing of
      disciples in all lands, he will duplicate himself repeatedly. The
      effectiveness and the potency of the over-shadowed disciple will be
      amazing"

      ****

      "Christ will, therefore, surely come in three ways. He will come as
      men recognize that He is truly here as He has been ever since He
      apparently left the earth; He will come in the sense also that He
      will over-shadow, inspire and directly guide and personally confer
      with His advanced disciples as they labor in the field of the world,
      in the effort to establish right human relations and as they become
      known as the directing Agents of [147] God's will; He will come also
      in the hearts of men everywhere, manifesting as the indwelling
      Christ, struggling towards the light and influencing the lives of men
      towards conscious recognition of divinity. Men on a large scale will
      then pass through the Bethlehem experience, the Christ in them will
      come to the birth and they will become 'new men'."

      ****


      1. By His over-shadowing of all initiates and disciples who are
      today, or will be at the time of His arrival, active in the three
      worlds of human evolution. This involves His influencing their
      minds telepathically. This over-shadowing or influencing will be
      His primary work upon the mental plane. This will constitute one
      of His most effective methods in His proposed spiritual
      interference in world affairs. Through the medium of these members
      or affiliates of the Hierarchy, He will have outposts of His
      consciousness in every nation. Through them He can work.

      2. By the pouring out of the Christ life or consciousness upon the
      masses everywhere and in every nation. This spiritual inflow will
      bring about the reorienting of human desire and will evoke the
      emotional reaction to His Presence. This therefore brings the
      astral plane within the active sphere of His influence; this
      involves the release of the energy of goodwill into the hearts of
      men, predisposing them towards right human relations. It is this
      establishing of right relations which is the major objective of
      His coming triple activity. The masses everywhere will be
      responsive to the work and the message of the Christ, as it is
      [616] implemented from the mental plane by the disciples and
      initiates, over-shadowed by the mind of Christ.

      3. By His physical appearance among men. Through His Own immediate
      appearance, He can establish a potent focal point of hierarchical
      energy upon Earth in a manner not hitherto possible. He has never
      deserted humanity and has always kept His promise to stay with us
      all the days, even unto the end of the age. Men in all lands will
      know where He can be found. The locale of this focal point of His
      threefold spiritual activity cannot here be disclosed, for it is
      contingent upon the results of the sequential processes of
      over-shadowing and outpouring.
