(Ramesh Balsekar, my edit)
Minerals, plants, animals, and humanity; what comes next? Will it be a super-human being who observes the Matrix we live in fold into nothingness? What then lies beyond the Matrix we are embedded in? Well, one step at a time. The 5D world, as the New Agers call it, is waiting for us. Each spiritual discipline has the tools to awaken to the New World. Christ versus Zen, it is merely a matter of involvement.
Zen is the realization that we can rest at the center of the circle watching the world spin, as Lao-Tzu described this blessed state in the Tao Te Ching. Christ is the super ego showing the ego that it is nothing but an ill-fated belief. Zen is Neo in the movie Matrix stepping away from the machine that still has his Soul siblings attached to it. Christ is Neo handing out red pills inside the Matrix to whoever is willing to swallow it.
Zen is science. Christ is love. Zen is beyond this world. Christ shows us that the 3D world is not real. Neither spiritual discipline is superior. It is a question of what is more useful in your current state of Awakening. As a matter of fact, I use both spiritual disciplines in my writings and coaching. The time of Pass-over stands for freedom. The time of Easter stands for transcending the 3D world we were born into. Be free!
