Ascended Master Saint Germain, April 6, 2007 through Kim Michaels.
For we are not about going down—we are about going up! There is only one direction for me and that is UP! And if you want to follow me, you have to go up with me, because I will not stand still and wait for you. I have a golden age to manifest on this planet. And I am about my Father’s business. So if you want to be a student of Saint Germain, follow me as I go up! God did not tell me that I had to be the hierarch of the Aquarian age—I made a choice. And I made that choice not out of pessimism, not out of thinking that this world was about to fall apart. I made the choice because I saw the higher vision of the potential of making that Golden Age a reality.
My Beloved, the motto of all pessimists throughout the ages has been, “I am not a pessimist, I am a realist.” There is blind realism and there is the realism based on the vision of Christ. Surely, there are optimists who are blind, but I am not among them. And I do not want you to be among them. But neither do I want you to be among the blind pessimists who think they are being realistic in believing that things can only get worse.
Do you think Jesus would have come to this planet if he thought there was no hope of turning it around? Nay! Why would we expose ourselves to a hopeless cause? Why would we bind ourselves to a planet that was doomed to go to hell? This planet is not doomed to go anywhere. But it surely has the potential to go up, and to transcend all of the old mental boxes that keep people trapped and keep them asleep.
So my beloved – just to stress this point again – what is needed in America today is that the American people are given a different perspective that allows them to step outside of their current mental box and look at America from a greater perspective. To some degree you can get this perspective on this earth by interacting with people who are outside America and therefore are looking at America from outside the mental box. But I must tell you that there is hardly anywhere to go on this planet, where they do not have their own mental box that filters their view of reality and their view of America. So while you can learn somewhat from people in other cultures and nations, you need to raise that vision and seek for something that is totally beyond the duality consciousness. And that something is, of course, the Living Word, which is the only thing that will connect you to a reality that cannot be affected by duality, and therefore cannot become a closed box and cannot become subject to the forces of the second law of thermodynamics.
Jesus came 2,000 years ago to set the foundation for the golden age of Aquarius by creating a tradition, whereby people would have and maintain the direct contact with the Living Word—which would allow them to develop Christ discernment, so that they could not be pulled into the dualistic extremes and become blinded by that relative, dualistic logic. For the only way to avoid creating a closed mental box, creating a closed system, is to be connected to something beyond duality.
And the only thing beyond duality is the universal Christ mind – the LOGOS – which is simply another word for the Christ mind, and has been translated in the English Bible as the Word. But I tell you, it would have been far better if it had been maintained as the LOGOS. Because the LOGOS has a broader meaning than the Word. And I shall let Jesus himself explain this to you. But the reality is that from the very moment that the Creator decided to give beings free will, the universal Christ mind was created to make sure that they could never be lost in the consciousness of duality, the consciousness of separation, but they always had a way back to the reality of oneness. And that reality is the LOGOS, which is expressed in this world through the Living Word. It is the only thing that can help you escape the duality consciousness without having your sense of self-worth broken down.
