Indeed. The only difference is that we are all at different stages of different paths to the same place. But when you reach a certain point you begin to illuminate the way through your actions in the drudgery of daily life for those who follow on your path, and a bit to others as well, like a beacon in the night.

In truth, the messiah is simply someone who has reached a certain level of enlightenment. Now whether fellow humans recognise this or not in someone is a different matter.

I mean how would you recognsie the messiah? Think about it.
