You might be closer than you think

Ascended Master Jesus, December 23, 2005 through Kim Michaels.

There are so many of you who are so much closer than you think to reaching a level of consciousness where you can be the instrument for the Living Christ. Again, you need not necessarily stand in front of a group of people. You can speak the Living Word in a conversation with others, that is not an ordinary conversation talking about worldly things, but an extraordinary conversation because you are allowing the Living Christ to flow through you. And that Living Christ can then transform the other person because the Living Christ knows exactly what to say and how to say it to awaken that particular person, in whatever state of consciousness he or she is in at the moment.

The Living Christ can give a person the precise key that the person needs to take the next step on the spiritual path, whatever that might be, which you often will not know with your outer mind. If you are willing to be the instrument, truly the Living Christ can speak through you and thereby you can ignite the heart flame of another person, you can reawaken that memory. And that is how the Living Christ spreads throughout the earth—from heart to heart.

This is how Christianity spread in the early days, when those who went out and preached did not come out with a written book, with a scripture or with a set doctrine. They spoke the Living Word and it was the Living Word that ignited hearts for Christ. And when those hearts were ignited, they came to a point, where they were no longer afraid to let the Living Christ speak through them. And thus, the Christian movement spread like rings in the water, which is the only way it could spread in the ancient world—and which is the only true way it can spread today and transform the world to the maximum capacity.

Truly, you can do much through a book. Truly, you can do much through a website. But ultimately, the most important way for the Living Christ to expand itself in this world is from heart to heart. And thus, you have been willing to come and experience the Living Christ flow through the heart of one person. And you must realize that, truly, the Living Christ can express itself through your heart as you see it expressed through the hearts of others.

But how can this happen in you? It can happen only if you are willing to multiply the talents instead of burying them in the ground. And why do you bury your talents in the ground? Because of fear. There is only that reason. Again, we return to the fact that you must confront your fears, one at a time. Confront your fears of letting the Living Christ speak through you, thereby transforming another person and transforming yourself in the process. I truly will help you, if you apply to my heart and the heart of Mother Mary. We will help you see what it is that you fear, why you fear it and why your fear is unreal, why it is unnecessary.

Multiply what we have given
You must begin, you must multiply the talents, for we have now given you an outer teaching and outer examples. And we can do no more—until you decide to close the figure-eight flow by multiplying the talents so that you are willing to become more, and so that you too can become the instruments for the Living Christ.

You can do this in any situation in life. Some of you have professions where you counsel other people. Well, would you not rather counsel people from the level of the Christ mind than from the level of the worldly mind? Some of you do not counsel people in your occupations but you interact with people in other ways. And you will be amazed how, when you open your heart, the Living Christ will, in seemingly ordinary situations, bring forth some morsel of truth, charged with light, that will transform another person. And they are suddenly awakened and realize, “This is what I have always been looking for, this is the answer I wanted.” Or they realize, “I need to change my life, I cannot go on like this any longer.”

And when you see this happen to other people, as many of you have already seen, you will feel the joy that I feel when the Living Christ is allowed to enter the heart of a person in embodiment and transform that person and lift them up. For truly, the Living Christ has only one desire and that is to raise up all life. And that is why you see that when people embody the Living Christ, they have no other desire than to raise up all of life. They have come to that point of surrender that they simply want to serve, and they want to raise up all life instead of raising up only one part of life, namely themselves.

But what is to stop you from coming to that same point? Only your fears, and your fears are unreal. So what keeps you from being who you truly are and expressing who you truly are is simply unreality. And thus – again – when you see the Living Christ in another, do not idolize that person. Do not put them up on a pedestal as people have done to me for 2,000 years and as people in almost every spiritual movement on earth have done to the leader or leaders of that organization.
