Ascended Master Jesus, May 10, 2009 through Kim Michaels.
And what trips you up in many cases is exactly your willingness to look for the beam in your own eye. Your willingness to recognize that there is something that must be given up. And therefore, you are so focused on seeing the problem, of overcoming the problem, and thinking in terms of problems, that you cannot let go of the memory of who you were in the past and how you were an imperfect being and how much you had to give up. And therefore, you cannot always accept that now that you have given it up, you are no longer that being who had that problem before.
Do you see, my beloved? When you are reborn, you become a new person, a new being in Christ. But you have free will. You cannot accept that you are a new being – you cannot accept it in your conscious mind – unless you are willing to truly acknowledge that you are not the person who made the mistake or had the belief that you discovered yesterday and gave up.
My Beloved, if you look at my life as Jesus, I passed several initiations where I had to accept a higher identity. You can see this between the lines of the official scriptures, although some of them have indeed been taken out, some were never even there, because the gospel writers did not have the full understanding of my being and the path of Christhood and the initiations I went through. Nevertheless, the reality is that I had several initiations where I had to accept a higher sense of identity in order to take my mission to the next level.
And had I not been willing to do this, then my mission would have stalled at a certain level. And I would not have gone all the way to the ultimate end of hanging on the cross and giving up the ghost of the final limitations—thereby being resurrected. So you see, my beloved, this is the initiation that all of us have faced as we walked the path and attained our ascensions.
