Rev. Dr. Charlene Proctorabout this book: The Oneness Gospel: Birthing the Christ Consciousness and Divine Human in You, is a rich mix of science, spirituality and mysticism that transcends the boundaries of religion, and uplifts the reader to that place of Oneness.
The motivation behind the book was when my family was going through suffering and with any family there is always some suffering. I experienced that with my son. Carrying burdens of magnitude, such as illness or the disease of addiction, and watching a loved one spiral into a personal hell is not easy. In our home, there was emotional suffering for all involved, and as a mother, I took that on as our own. That is how my back injury arrived. The back is all about support. Emotional trauma takes a physical toll on a human being and consequently, we carry that in our energy layers, our koshas, and it perpetuates disease. I looked for any tools to help me release emotional charges, and I was intrigued with a process that could do it.
I became interested with the idea of deeksha as a means to release emotional trauma from the energy layers in the body. I received this blessing and energy from Sai Maa and Amma Amritanandamayi many years ago. These were my first introductions to deeksha and darshan from holy masters. I experienced what it felt like to release suffering and open my heart and to feel being loved unconditionally.
Studying the works of Yogananda and going back to the New Testament made me realize that truth is universal. God's grace arrives in uncountable forms and is always available to everyone. It's free. In the Oneness community, grace is seen as a means of healing.
During my research, I discovered the Oneness teachings as given in India. They originated in Sri Amma and Sri Bhagavan, two people who consider themselves one unified, avataric consciousness. They are God-realized and were initiating the collective force of unified consciousness in the form of something called the Oneness Blessing. It's actually deeksha, but the difference between them and all who have gone before is that they are teaching everyone how to give it. They are interested in creating individual change through this neurobiological event, which they say happens through grace. Once you invite that energy into you, it's there to stay. I thought this was a wonderful idea. It helped inspire the material and lessons in The Oneness Gospel.
After I discovered the teachings in Fiji and India, I noticed their congruence with the teachings of Jesus. They are simple, interfaith, and universal. Given the polarized society we live in today, these unity-oriented lessons on personal transformation are very exciting.
