Ascended Master Jesus, May 10, 2009 through Kim Michaels.
Do you see, my beloved, humankind’s sense of self can be reborn. As it, indeed, has been many times over the course of history, my beloved. Take a look at the medieval society in Europe, where they believed the earth was flat. It took some time, it was not that everybody woke up one morning and said, “Oh yeah, I now see the earth is round.” No, it took some time. In fact, some people had to die physically and be reborn again into a new environment before they could accept that the earth was round.
But nevertheless, what happened was that the collective sense of self – based on the belief that the earth was flat – died, and humankind’s sense of self was reborn based on the new awareness that the earth is round. So, you will see many of these shifts, my beloved. The renaissance was a period of many such shifts. The industrial revolution, the scientific revolution, brought many such shifts. And science is still serving, to some degree, to bring these shifts, although it has also fallen into taking up the position that the Catholic Church held in the Middle Ages of actually holding back people in a materialistic mindset.
Yet you will see, in coming decades and years, that science itself will indeed be propelled beyond materialism. Materialism cannot maintain its grip on science, just as the old mindset can only maintain its grip on religion and spiritual people for a time. As you indeed see so many spiritual people in today’s age who have moved far beyond the mindset that held the people of medieval Europe in the grips of the Catholic Church.
