Ascended Master Mother Mary, May 18, 2007 through Kim Michaels.
Your Creator, your God, accepts you right now unconditionally for who you are. And there are two meanings to this statement. For it should be obvious, given the knowledge that you have – and, certainly, I realize that most of the world do not have these teachings or do not accept them – but you who accept these teachings can understand, that you were created out of a greater spiritual being who came out of an even greater spiritual being and that chain of being reaches all the way back to the Creator.
Perhaps you do not fully internalize and accept this teaching. But you can understand it – at least intellectually – and therefore you can understand that when you were created out of the Creator’s own Being, surely God the Creator accepts himself. And certainly, God the Creator accepts that part of its own Being that is imparted to you. So you should be able to understand and accept that God can have unconditional acceptance for that part of your Being that truly is an individualization of the Creator.
Yet, I desire to give you an even deeper teaching, which I know will require you to stretch the mind and the heart and to watch your emotions and see the inner reaction. I ask you, as I am speaking these words, to watch your reaction, your thoughts, your feelings—the conditions that come up in you. For I must tell you that many of you might look at yourselves today and say, “I can understand that God accepts my God Flame, my I AM Presence, my divine individuality, but surely I have fallen into a lower state of consciousness. I have created an ego. I have accepted conditions. I may have psychological issues. I may have done certain things in my life. And surely how could God accept this? So how could God accept the outer personality, the outer sense of identity that I have created in this world?”
But you see, my beloved, the reality is that God accepts you for who you are right this moment. And God’s acceptance of you is unconditional. Watch your reactions. Watch how your ego will struggle with this statement and come up with reasons for why this cannot be so. “For if God accepts me for who I am right now, then why do I have to go through this arduous path of penance and forgiveness of sin and being saved by some external savior?”
The truth is, the path that you have to go through is the path that you have created through the conditions that you have accepted. Depending on what kind and how many conditions you have accepted, there is a path for each one of you to follow. But here is the essential key, that so few people have understood. The path that you have to follow in order to qualify for your freedom is NOT fulfilling the outer conditions that you have come to accept. The path is to let go of those conditions!!! To come to see that they are unreal, that they are illusions, that they are dualistic illusions created by the serpentine mind, by the fallen state of consciousness, by the consciousness of separation and duality.
Many of you have already realized this because you have experienced this in your own lives, that you had to go through a period of searching or depression or outer difficulties, only to come to a point where you surrendered, you let go, where you said, “I don’t need this belief anymore. I don’t need this vicarious atonement. I don’t need to feel like a sinner.”
Do you see the essential characteristic of thinking that in order to be saved you have to fulfill an outer condition? And so you strive all of your lives to be a good Catholic or a good Muslim or a good Hindu or a good New Age person or whatever you think is the outer path. And yet the alternative is to realize that the real path, the inner path, is to let go of the conditions that are inside of you instead of trying to fulfill outer conditions, that only take your attention away from the kingdom of God that is within you. Making you think that you have to enter some external kingdom, that you need an external savior or an external Church or to fulfill some external conditions.
