Ascended Master Saint Germain, December 15, 2007 through Kim Michaels.
Well, once again, it can be done only by them seeing examples of people who are willing to put themselves in the flow of the River of Life, and to allow that River of Life to take them wherever they need to go in order to fulfill their divine plans. One of the main reasons why Jesus came to earth, was to demonstrate to the people that God has love for them. For did he not say, “God so loved the world that he sent his only begotten son into the world, so that the world through him might be saved.”
So we could say that the essence of Jesus’ mission was to help all people understand and accept that God loves them, for they are worthy of God’s love. And God has sent his son into the world to show an example of one who loves unconditionally. Of course, this was meant to be much more than what it has been turned into by official Christianity, that once again perverted the inner teachings of Christ by turning Jesus into an exception. Saying that Jesus, the outer person of Jesus, was the only son of God, instead of the reality of Jesus’ teaching, namely that it is the universal Christ consciousness that is the only begotten son of the Father.
Because only this state of consciousness can recognize the reality of the Father, while at the same time recognizing the unreality of those who have fallen into the duality consciousness and have separated themselves from the River of Life. And thus, the Christ consciousness is the only one who can bridge the gap between the Creator and those who have separated themselves from the River of Life, thereby serving as the open door through which they can get back into oneness with all life.
Jesus came to set forth that example of someone who loves unconditionally. And with loving unconditionally we mean, of course, as we have said before, someone who will not accept current conditions as final or unchangeable, but always goes into a particular situation seeking to raise up that situation and the people in that situation to become More. The Christ realizes that it is not realistic that people can come from a state of extreme poverty to manifesting full Christhood in the blink of an eye. So he meets them where they are, giving them a cup of cold water in Christ’s name, giving them whatever they need at their current level of consciousness in order to raise themselves up to that next level, and then continue from there.
You must understand, that precisely because of the consciousness of separation, precisely because of the downward spiral of poverty, both spiritual and material poverty, people were not ready 2,000 years ago to understand the inner teachings of Christ. And that is part of the reason why Jesus’ teachings were perverted, so that he was set up as the exception. Whereas in reality the hope was that many people would dare to follow in the footsteps of Christ and also express that unconditional love by saying, “We cannot accept current conditions, we need to change, we need to come up higher.”
And when you look at the past 2,000 years, my beloved, you will see that there have indeed been outstanding individuals, who had that love of Christ to come into this world, into a particular society, and say, “Things must change! Things cannot remain the same! Things must become more because they CAN become more, and this is right!” The greater Right that is beyond any human discussion, or any human definition of the duality of human right or human wrong. It is right because it is Right in God. You have seen a few individuals who have taken that stand, and you have also seen that, once in a while, a greater group of people were willing to take a stand for a greater cause, for something that was right. And every time you saw that happen, you saw a shift in the collective consciousness, and you saw that being outpictured in the physical reality, so that society changed at least a little bit.
