Ascended Master Serapis Bey, December 18, 2009 through Kim Michaels.
One might look at the teachings I have given here, the teachings given by Astrea, about the words and the Word. One might think, that one should therefore never speak out against anyone or any condition. Indeed, it would be wise to realize, that you should never speak out against any one person, for you should always recognize, that any person embodied on earth has been given an opportunity by the Karmic Board. And that opportunity was given because the Karmic Board realized, that the being, no matter how dark it may seem, has the opportunity to accelerate beyond its current state. And thus, when you address another person, you look at that opportunity, you hold that immaculate concept, and you speak to the person as if the person is real, is an extension of God’s Being, and has the opportunity to rise.
Therefore, you are not seeking to condemn or put down, but you are seeking to raise up. Now in seeking to raise up, of course, it may be necessary to challenge another person’s unreality, as Jesus indeed challenged the scribes and Pharisees—and was quite direct in doing so. Yet, if you are willing to truly ponder the teachings I have given in this release, you will be able to have the “Aha experience,” that allows you to see the reality I am seeking to communicate.
There is a fundamental difference between speaking out and challenging other people from the consciousness of judgment – where you have the fundamental world view, that it is right and proper and necessary to divide people into those who are worthy, those who are not, those who can be saved, those who cannot – and then speaking out from the purity of the Christ consciousness, where you seek to raise up all life. In the former state of consciousness, you think that you are worthy to be the judge of other people, of whether they should be taken to hell or raised up to heaven. You think you are worthy to play God. You think you are worthy to be the one-man Karmic Board, who can decide whether another should be raised up or condemned or go to the second death.
In judging, you judge yourself
Yet in so doing, what must you do? Jesus said, “Do unto others what you would have them do unto you.” But as we have explained before, the deeper understanding here is, that what you do unto others, you have already done to yourself. If you judge others, you have already judged yourself. And as I said, if you are in that state of judging yourself, if you came into the Ascension Temple and I exposed to you an impurity in your being, you would immediately use that exposure to judge yourself as being not worthy, and therefore you could not remain in the Ascension Temple.
By the mere act of judging others, you demonstrate that you have already judged yourself, and therefore you are not ready to enter the Ascension Temple. For you still have something, that you need to hide from yourself, and therefore you need to be in an environment, where you can maintain the illusion, that what you can hide from yourself and from other people, is also hidden from God and the ascended masters. And thus, you must remain in the school of hard knocks, where you can indeed hide. But in that school, we of the ascended masters can do little for you. Such is the reality.
If you recognize in yourself, that you have this need to judge and condemn, if you recognize it and if you come to the point where you say, “I am willing to go beyond it. Masters, help me transcend this need to judge,” then we can help you. We can give you individual instructions. But we can also ask you to follow an outer course of action, of seeking to purify yourself from the energies of the accuser of the brethren.
And for this purpose we will, of course, bring forth tools such as the invocation rosary spoken of by Astrea. But you can also use a simple prayer in your heart. And I give you this offer, that you can call to me, Serapis Bey, and say in whatever words you prefer, “Serapis, help me.” Give a simple prayer for me to help you see, what you need to see in order to gradually – as you are able to do so without shattering your self-esteem – go beyond that downward spiral of the fallen beings of the judgment and the division. And I will help you, as you are willing to look at yourself.
