Ascended Master Jesus, December 31, 2011 through Kim Michaels.
But you see my beloved, this is not the movement I started 2,000 years ago. Do you not realize, that the Christian religion has painted a man-made image of Christ. If you truly listen to what the Catholic Church is saying about my life, when I walked the earth 2,000 years ago, you would think, my beloved, that I gave my sermon on the Mount in St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, would you not? And you realize, of course, that this was not the case, for this monumental edifice to the human ego had not been built by the time I walked the dusty roads of Galilee.
So where did I give my sermons, where did I meet people in the beginning of my mission? I met them like you are meeting today: in private homes, where people came together as the little children, who wanted to hear a new message. And they sensed the message that I gave, they sensed the joy behind it, the joy of having found oneness with something higher than the divisions on earth. And that is the Spirit in which they came together, these early Followers of the Way, who had no agenda, who had no sophisticated arguments, who did not come to be proven right, who did not come to prove me wrong. Even though, of course, you see that some had the consciousness that was illustrated in Peter, of wanting even the living Christ walking with them, to live up to a certain man-made image.
Yet many came, and they were willing to first express their image, but then grow out of it, then transcend it by coming into greater oneness with me as the teacher, by coming into greater oneness with each other as the Followers of the Way. And thus, we of the ascended masters today do not desire to give you a clearly defined doctrine, a clearly defined set of rules. We do not even desire to see you start organizations, that set themselves apart from others or say they are better than others. We desire you to maintain that awareness of the inner child, where you do not think that you know better than the teacher.
For do you not see, that if you really look at a child, you see this great desire to learn. And it is this openness to learning that opens your heart to a teacher, whether it be a teacher in embodiment or the ascended masters. We of the ascended masters look down upon earth, and we are always seeking to help anyone rise higher on their individual path, we are always seeking to give them a teaching.
But we see that there are some that we cannot help, because they do not have the innocence, the childlike mind, the beginner’s mind, the openness of the heart to seeing something that they cannot see today. To letting the teacher take them by the hand and leading them up higher, until they can look back at their former state of consciousness and see: “Ahh, how limited it was, and how glad I am that I now have a higher perspective.”
