Ascended Master Gautama Buddha, November 2, 2008 through Kim Michaels.
Nevertheless, I know that there are many among you, who are working on rising to the parallel universe of the Christ consciousness, and thus it is beyond your present level for you to see yourselves as the Buddha. And I am not asking you to go beyond that level of consciousness. For you are partly here to out-picture and exemplify that level of consciousness of the Christ to the many people on earth, who must grasp the Christ Consciousness before they can truly grasp the Buddhic Consciousness.
Yet, what I come to offer you is a deeper understanding and realization of my office as the “Lord of the World.” For you see, even though some traditional Buddhists see me with a female consort up in a remote heaven; the reality is that when I took up my role as the “Lord of the World” for planet earth, I renounced my female consort, set her free to ascend to a higher realm. Then, who is the female consort of the Buddha? Who is the female polarity to the masculine polarity of the Buddha? Well, the entire planet earth and all who live upon it have the potential to become the female consort—or rather, to see themselves as what they already are, namely the female consort of the Buddha.
For, as the “Lord of the World,” I hold the masculine polarity for planet earth; meaning that all who are part of the consciousness that is planet earth, well they are part of the feminine polarity for which I hold the balance—even being the open door for the very life-giving force that sustains all life on this earth. And you might contemplate, that before I could enter Nirvana, I had to be tempted and tested – not simply by the demons of Mara as is stated in traditional Buddhic mythology – I had to be tested and tempted by every level of consciousness found on planet earth at the time, in order to demonstrate that I had risen above and become non-attached to all of them.
You might consider, that as you rise on the spiritual path, the essence of you taking the next step is to be like the Buddha for that particular level of consciousness. For it is only when you reach the end, the top rung of the ladder, that you must face all of them at one time. Right now you only need to face the very level of consciousness that you are in the process of transcending. And you will transcend it only in becoming non-attached, so that that consciousness – so that that prince of this world – comes to you and has nothing in you, as Christ expressed it so beautifully.
Looking at your universe through the vision of the Buddha
Even though we talk about fallen beings and dark forces, we know – and we desire you to know – that they have no ultimate reality. I know that this can be difficult to grasp for some of you. For in the parallel universe in which your mind is currently focused, they seem to be very real and they even seem to have power over you. But that is where I can offer my assistance, if you will only spend a little bit of time and attention tuning in to my Presence.
Do not fall prey to the temptation to turn this into an elaborate ritual. Simply create a very simple visualization in your mind of you sitting under the Bo tree with the presence of Gautama superimposed over you. And then ask me to show you how your parallel universe looks from my state of consciousness, or at least from the state of consciousness right above yours, so that you may grasp it and free yourself from the illusion that this Mara is real and has any power over you. This will require you – as Jesus expressed – to tune in to the silence, the silence within.
My Beloved, how many of you as children played with a top, a spinning top? Probably all of you did, or at least you know how it works. It spins around on its axis, and when you look at the periphery of the toy, you might focus on a particular point on that periphery, and it is constantly spinning at great speed, never standing still. But that point is on the periphery of a circle, and the circle has a center. And my beloved, no matter how fast the point on the periphery is spinning, the point in the center is always standing still, is it not?
From a surface perspective, things on this planet may seem very confusing and chaotic. But that is because your attention is focused on the surface of the earth, which is indeed spinning around at thousands of miles per hour. So direct your attention to the axis, to the center, and realize that no matter how much turmoil is going on on the surface, there is a point within that is always standing still. And in that stillness you can find your own center, and there you will find me—for I am the center for all life on earth. That is my office as “Lord of the World.”
Thus, I sit in complete peace and Oneness, and although I see the surface appearances – although I see the demons of Mara in their distorted form – I see beyond them and see that everything is made from the Ma-ter Light. And the Ma-ter Light is the Buddha Nature. It is so one with that Buddha Nature, that it is longing to out-picture the perfect images that are stored in that Buddha Nature, as an infinite potential to express creativity in a way that raises up all life, rather than raising that separate self.
