You asked: Is attuning to the Thought Adjuster the same thing as
experiencing Christ Consciousness?
I would think that you are correct in the assumption in your
question, but there may be an elements of desire in there, too. Is
"Christ-consciousness" what you seek?
I am thinking that the fact that you want to know these things is an
indication that you already are "Christ-conscious," or willing to be.
The term "Christ-consciousness" is not found in The Urantia
Book, but when I think of it, I am reminded of this passage:
102:4.1 Because of the
presence in your minds of the Thought Adjuster, it is no more of a
mystery for you to know the mind of God than for you to be sure of the
consciousness of knowing any other mind, human or superhuman. Religion
and social consciousness have this in common: They are predicated on
the consciousness of other-mindness. The technique whereby you can
accept another's idea as yours is the same whereby you may "let the
mind which was in Christ be also in you."
"...The fact of experience is found in self-consciousness
plus other-existences—other-thingness, other-mindness, and other-
I found this in the section called: The Fact of Experience, which is a
really good section that will add more to this understanding for you, I
think, if you read it through.
And so, it is through the ministry of the Adjuster that we can be
connected to that mind of Christ, too. Since the Thought Adjuster is a
literal fragment of God, and since Jesus [Christ] is our representation
of that same God, attuning to that presence for guidance and direction
in life is an essential to becoming both God-conscious AND Christ-
conscious. Again, I would think that this is a function also of our
CHOOSING to gain this kind of experience. I am not sure it happens
without our seeking it.
We also have the ministry of Jesus' Spirit of Truth, whose presence
is also available to us. Along with the Holy Spirit (Mother Spirit),
these two-the Adjuster and the Spirit of Truth-work together, too, to
help us become more conscious of our unseen benefactors.
34:5.6 The presence of the
Holy Spirit of the Universe Daughter of the Infinite Spirit, of the
Spirit of Truth of the Universe Son of the Eternal Son, and of the
Adjuster-spirit of the Paradise Father in or with an evolutionary
mortal, denotes symmetry of spiritual endowment and ministry and
qualifies such a mortal consciously to realize the faith-fact of
sonship with God.
And in my understanding, this would constitute "consciousness" --
of God, and of Christ Michael.
