Ascended Master Jesus, October 23, 2005 through Kim Michaels.
Truly, those who are not willing to be disturbed are not my true followers. And I must tell you that this very messenger once had a discussion with a Lutheran priest who believed in sincerity that when I came to call my disciples and said, “Leave your nets, I will make you fishers of men,” they did not instantly leave their nets and follow me. “Oh,” the priest said, “they must have had a least a year to put their things in order and prepare to follow Christ.”
But you see, my beloved, my mission was only a total of three years. There was no time for my disciples to take care of their worldly business. I must tell you that when I called my disciples, I literally walked up to them – they had never seen me before – and I looked them straight in the eye and I said, “Leave your nets and follow me,” and I turned around and walked away. And those who did not follow me straight away did not become my disciples, for that was the law at that point in time.
And although the requirements have been slackened somewhat – because back then I had only three years and now we are in a more ongoing cycle – I must tell you that although you can take some time to step on to the inner path of Christhood, you cannot take forever. There must come a point where you are willing to say, “Enough is enough! I have had enough with that ego, and it is time that I step on to the true path.”
When that time comes for you individually, you need to be alert, you need to be aware, because truly your Christ self, myself, or another ascended master will appear to you at inner levels. And you need to be open to hearing our voice. And if you have the attachment to an outer teaching or organization, you will reject us when we come to you.
Do not reject the teacher
Imagine what would have happened if Mother Mary had rejected the angel when he came and told her that she was to give birth to the Christ child. What if she had said, “I don’t believe you are real. I am perfectly happy living in my monastery. Leave me alone.” Oh my beloved, then I would not have been born, would I? So if I come to you and say, “The Christ is ready to be born in your heart,” and you say, “Leave me alone, I am comfortable,” then the Christ will not be born in your heart. And thus, the second coming will not occur on planet earth. For it will take ten thousand people who are willing to let the Christ be born in their hearts to bring about that second coming that is the fulfillment of the cycle of Pisces and therefore the open door to the Golden Age of Aquarius.
It is time to step up to the plate and be on the inner path, and throw away and leave behind anything that has become a net that no longer catches fish but catches you and holds you back from plunging yourself into the River of Life. I am come that all might have life and that they might have it more abundantly. But it does not mean that I, Jesus, will appear in the sky and let the abundant life rain upon you from heaven. Having the abundant life means being in the abundant state of consciousness. And that state of consciousness is perpetual self-transcendence. Truly, there is nothing else. There is no substitute for self-transcendence.
