Ascended Master Jesus, April 8, 2007 through Kim Michaels.
But as I started out saying, there is no question that Christ shall reign forever and ever. For Christ is beyond time and space. And time and space cannot last forever. For it is not possible for anything in this world to go on indefinitely, for everything is defined by boundaries, by contrasts. The very fact that you have separate forms means that there has to be a boundary. So everything has to have a limit, even time.
To confound your logical minds, let me refer to something that has been pondered by certain mathematicians. Some of them have given up thinking about it, while others kept thinking about it until they found themselves in a straightjacket. For it is indeed one of these things that cannot be solved by the analytical mind. Now, you know very well that if you start counting, one, two, three, four, you can keep going. And maybe some of you as children played the game of counting to one thousand, just to see what that would be like.
Well, mathematicians faced the question of, “How many numbers are there—how high can you count before you run out of numbers?” If you will ponder this logically, you might on one hand say you can go on forever. You can go on indefinitely adding one number, always being able to add one number to the last number. But how long would it take to count up an infinite amount of numbers? Well, would it not take an infinite amount of time?
What is the solution to the riddle? Well, it is – as Einstein had indeed sensed intuitively but could not yet express mathematically – that the material universe forms a closed loop that loops back upon itself. In a certain sense – if you kept counting long enough from one to two to three, adding one number – in a certain sense you would end up back at your starting point. But this would not be in the linear sense, for I realize full well that your linear and analytical minds are racing to grasp this. But what would happen was that at some point you would have counted so high that you said to yourself, “This is ridiculous. There has got to be a better way to spend your life than by counting numbers.”
And you see, this is the key. For the reason why you are still in time and space is that you have not yet come to the realization, that you have had enough of the world where there is contrast between good and evil, joy and sorrow. Indeed, some of you fell into the duality consciousness out of curiosity. What would it be like to be outside of the bliss where there is no contrast? What would it be like to be in a world with contrasts? Would it not be a more intense experience—that you had a more intense experience of joy but you had also experienced sorrow?
