Starting from humble circumstances

Ascended Master Mother Mary, September 30, 2006 through Kim Michaels.

 

My Beloved hearts, I am Mary the Mother of all life. For I have become one with the flame of the Divine Mother that truly encompasses all life in the material world and all life in the spiritual realm. I come with a message of peace, of love and of gratitude. For truly, we, the ascended masters, are grateful that you have come to be here with us. It might seem as if we meet in strange places—in this place in Sweden. But think about the conditions that Jesus and his disciples endured many years ago when they walked the dusty roads of ancient Palestine. Many Christians have grown up with a vastly distorted image of Jesus and his image, thinking there was great glory, fame and fortune and that Jesus was treated as the celebrities you have today.

The reality was far different. For Jesus did not stay long enough on earth to become a celebrity as you understand it today. He was not known beyond the borders of Palestine. And even within Palestine he was not known by many people, nor was he revered as he is revered by Christians today. After all, he was born in a manger. And why was this so? It was to show human beings the all-important truth that it is not the way things appear to the outer senses or the outer mind that is important. What is important is what is not seen with the senses but what can be felt and experienced in the heart. This is what counts. This is all that counts. And thus, we have always attempted to help the spiritual people see that it is not the outer appearances that are ultimately real, that the outer appearances are not permanent and that they truly have no power over your mind—unless you allow your minds to become identified with the outer conditions, even with the ego itself.

Look beyond outer conditions
So you see, the call for the spiritual people has always been to be spiritual regardless of the outer conditions they face in their personal lives or on the planet as a whole. The spiritual path, the true spiritual path, is not a matter of attaining outer fame or fortune or the status of a celebrity as some Church leaders and some preachers have indeed attained. We do not desire our true servants to be looked upon as celebrities or to be idolized. We do not desire our true servants to set themselves up as being above others. For what is the purpose?

The purpose, the true purpose, of all of our servants is to show people that there is more to life than the outer appearances and that they do not need to be limited or held back by the material conditions they face, or even by the psychological conditions they face in their own minds—but that you can transcend these outer conditions no matter what they are. And you can become more because the real you, what I have called the Conscious You, is more than any outer conditions, more than the ego, more than the outer personality.

You are not a human being. You are not a piece of living meat. You are a spark of the flame of God. An individual spirit spark who has the potential to become one with the All of God’s Being. And yet you are in a physical body on earth. So you face the challenge of balancing the knowledge that you are a spiritual being with the practical everyday reality that you all face on this planet. And this is a challenge that all of us who have descended to earth have faced.

Jesus and I faced it. And we sometimes had as much difficulty as you have in balancing the daily reality with our spiritual vision and goals.

My Beloved, this is natural. And I do not desire to see you become frustrated and think that you should be more spiritual, that you should be doing this or doing that, so that you frustrate yourselves and get down on yourselves for not doing enough. For truly we have done so ourselves. We have seen many other spiritual people do so. But in this age, the Age of Freedom, we desire to see many people rise above that, rise above that sense that it is not enough, that you are not doing enough.
