Ascended Master Mother Mary, March 12, 2005 through Kim Michaels.
My Beloved hearts, God has no greater desire than to see every human being come back into the River of Life. God has no desire for you to feel like a sinner, to blame yourself, to hold yourself back in fear, thinking you are not worthy. All of these feelings, the feeling that you are not worthy to be in the River of Life, these feelings truly spring from pride.
That may surprise you, because when you feel really bad about yourself, you don’t feel prideful at all. But you see, at a deeper level, your outer mind is saying, “My soul is not worthy.” Yet your lifestream was created by God, and that means you are saying that God must have created something that is not worthy. And if you hold on to that belief, you are saying that you know better than God what God created. In reality, God created a perfect lifestream because God created you in his image and likeness. And therefore, those who put you down, those who put themselves down, those who claim that you are nothing but mortal sinners, they are the prideful spirits, the prideful beings, the false prophets about whom Jesus spoke. And truly, if the blind lead the blind, they shall both end up in the ditch.
What makes you spiritually blind is pride. So go not after the prideful preachers of the world, those who tell you that you are no good, that you are not a spiritual being, that you need something from outside yourself in order to be saved. Do not buy their wares. Center in your heart, reach for the love of Christ, reach for the love of the Mother of God, the love that is so tender that few people can bear it. And yet, I so long to share it with all.
Your potential to follow the example set by Jesus
Your potential is that you can expand your consciousness, until you attain the same Christ consciousness that my beloved Jesus demonstrated 2,000 years ago. But you cannot do this in a mechanical way by following an outer ritual. You must do it by going within, by transforming your consciousness. In the beginning, this will be uncomfortable, and you have heard the saying, “No pain, no gain.”
Truly, I do not desire to see any of you experience pain, but I must tell you that there is a truth here, in the sense that most people on this earth have become comfortable in their state of suffering. They have become so used to the pain, which they experience daily, that they are numb to it. Before you can grow out of that pain, out of that state of consciousness, you must be willing to come out of your comfort zone.
You must be willing to look at some of your beliefs and realize that they are not the highest possible, that there is more to know, that there is more to understand. And that is why you see so many people who go through life being busy with the things of this world, not paying any attention to their own spiritual growth or to the spiritual side of life. And then they experience a major crisis, be it a health crisis, an accident, the death of a family member or the loss of a job. And all of a sudden, their new pain is so much more intense than the old pain with which they had become familiar, that they now wake up and say, “There must be a better way. There must be a way out.” And then they turn to the spiritual path.
My Beloved hearts, I have seen people do this millions of times. And although I welcome anyone who becomes spiritually awakened, I would so love to see people wake up before they hit the wall, before they experience a crisis. I would so love to see people wake up because they connect to the love in their hearts, and they just know from within that there is more to life, there is something higher.
To do that, the Conscious You must be willing to surrender itself to the masculine polarity of itself—the spiritual self. It must be willing to listen to the messenger sent by God, sent from Above, the messenger who comes into your life and says, “There is more. You don’t have to be stuck here. You can grow and go beyond this.”
Mother Mary’s life
This is really the story of my life. I wish I could give you a sense of what I felt when I was sitting there in the monastery, in solitude after my morning prayers, and I thought it was going to be just another day. And suddenly, there was a rushing like a mighty wind, and there was a bright light shining in the room. And there was the angel of God, standing in my room. My soul literally went into shock; his light was so bright, his vibration so intense that nothing on this earth compares.
If you will listen to my voice, I am giving you now the sense of the intensity of the Light of an archangel, at the level that I think you can bear, the level that will show you that there is more to life, there is something beyond, there is a higher state of consciousness, without burning you with the fire that is too hard for human beings to bear. Yet you can grow to the point, where you can bear that fire, where you can stand in the fire of God and like the bush that burned before Moses, you are burning with the spiritual fire, but you are not consumed.
You have allowed the fire of God to burn away your fears, your misqualified energy. You have invoked that fire from above to burn away the misqualified energy you have created over hundreds, and in many cases thousands, of lifetimes. And this fire is so intense that it can burn away the misqualified energy, created over thousands of lifetimes, in just one lifetime—if you truly apply yourself.
Many of you, who are the spiritual people today, should realize that you are the spiritual people because you know you are ready to take that step. You are ready to step out of that limited sense of identity as a mortal human being. You are ready to come up higher and you are ready to say, “Yes, Jesus is my older brother. He is not an idol, put up there on a pedestal. I will stop dancing around this golden calf presented by orthodox Christianity by turning Jesus into this superhuman that no one can reach. I will accept him as my older brother. I will follow his example, and I WILL come up higher. I will follow the example of Mother Mary, and I will ask that the Angel of the Lord, in the form of my own Christ self, will appear to me and show me the next step, show me the illusions I need to leave behind, so that I can fulfill the plan that my conscious self made before I came into this lifetime.”
Your divine plan
The greatest problem on planet earth today, the only problem on planet earth today, is that so many human beings have forgotten who they are and why they are here. And this is understandable, because the energies in this realm are so dense, so heavy, that it can easily overpower you, and you lose your memory of why you came. Yet those of you who have started the spiritual path, who are awakened, should realize that there are no limitations of how far you can go on this path, except the limitations that you accept with your outer minds.
Thus, when the Angel of the Lord appears to you and says, “You can let the Christ be born in you,” it is because the angel knows you are ready, as the angel knew I was ready to give birth to the physical Christ child. My devotion had caused my energy field to be filled with love, to be filled with grace. And you too can purify your temple, until you are ready for the Christ child, the spiritual Christ child, to be born in your heart. And thereby you become the Christed being that you truly are, that you already are in heaven. This is the being that is covered over by a mortal sense of identity, built from the illusions of this world.
