Ascended Master Nada, April 6, 2007 through Kim Michaels.
My Beloved hearts, you have earned a visitation from the Chohan of the sixth ray, Nada is my name. I do not often get an opportunity to speak on earth. And the reason for this is that so few people on earth have understood and embodied the qualities of the sixth ray, which is truly the ray of ministration and service—service to all life, service to the God in all life.
Jesus came on the sixth ray of ministration and service to set forth an example of service, true service, which is the service that seeks to raise up all life. What has happened to the example and the teachings of Jesus is that those who did not have the true desire to serve all life perverted those teachings and that example – that unique, magnificent example of service – and they created their graven image of service.
There are many people throughout the world who think they are giving service. There are many people in the Christian movement who think they are giving service, and they will claim any day – 24 hours a day, if you care to listen to them babble on about their own greatness – they will claim that they are serving God. But they are not serving the true God, the Living God. They are serving the graven image of God that has been created on this planet and that has been reinforced by many religions, but in the western world, especially through the Judeo-Christian tradition.
Serving a false God
That graven image is the image of the remote God in the sky, in many cases the angry God in the sky, who judges everyone and condemns those to hell who do not follow his law as robots. But you see, that God – although that God does exist – is not the real God. It is a false God that has been created, not simply on this planet, not simply in this universe, but as Maitreya explains in his book, it has been created in a higher sphere and has gradually fallen into this sphere, where it has now become the dominant image of God that people hold on this planet—the remote being, the external God.
Millions of people around the world firmly and truly believe in the illusion that because they are engaged in this or that religion, because they are doing this or that work prescribed by their religion, they are serving God. And they are serving the false God, the remote being in the sky, but they are not serving the Living God. Here is why—the Living God is not remote. For without him was not anything made that was made. It is even in the Christian Bible, that God is in everything that was ever made. And yet, were the Christians to hear or read this teaching they would say, “Oh, but that is Pantheism. That is a pagan teaching.” And so it is, but it is also a true teaching that was falsely banned as heresy by the Catholic Church fathers.
If God is in everything and if the kingdom of God is within you, then why would you need an outer Church to come between you and God? And so those who are the beings who fell in higher spheres and have descended to earth and who are trying to set themselves up as gods on earth, created the graven image of the remote God. For you see, only if people believe that God is remote, can they fall for the illusion that they need an external Church in order to reach God.
For when you realize the truth, and the full meaning of Jesus’ statement that the kingdom of God is within, you realize that you do not need an outer Church in order to enter the inner kingdom. This is not to say that you cannot benefit from a religious activity, a spiritual activity. But you can benefit ONLY if that activity seeks to open your heart, so that you can attain the inner contact with the God within, with the kingdom of God within. And if a spiritual movement, organization, truly fulfills that original goal, then it can be extremely beneficial, and it can be very beneficial for people to come together in a community.
