Look for your own filter

Ascended Master Jesus, April 6, 2007 through Kim Michaels.

The key to entering the kingdom of heaven is to step back and become aware of the filter through which you are looking at the world. For when you become aware of the filter, you can begin to examine it, and you can see that the filter is made up of certain beliefs. And when you examine those beliefs, you see that they are not completely in alignment with the reality of the Living Word.

When you are willing to see your filter, to discover it, and when you are willing to ask for the Living Word, you will get these “Aha” experiences, you will get these insights that come to you—sometimes at the strangest moments when you are in the middle of some activity, or even when you wake up in the middle of the night and suddenly understand something that you had never seen before. And suddenly, you will see that your beliefs that you had held for a long time – the beliefs that you thought were absolutely true and necessary – they are unreal, they are out of alignment with the reality of the WORD, the Living Word, because you now experience that WORD in your heart. And you know that your outer beliefs do not fit, they are not the right key, they will not unlock the door to the Christ consciousness because you are, as I said, judging on appearances rather than judging righteous judgment.

That is why I said that I came not to judge the world but that the world might be saved, because I came to reconnect everyone to the Living Word within them, which is what I called the Comforter—which I said I would have the Father send in my name, and he would bring all things to your attention that I have taught you. And the Comforter is the Living Word in your own heart, your Christ self, which will give you that inner Word that unlocks the understanding for you, the understanding that is beyond any outer words.

It is a reality that I could be talking unceasingly for the next ten years and you could be sitting here listening to me for the entire time, yet you might be no closer to having that inner realization. You might have a very sophisticated intellectual understanding of my teachings, but until you see it in yourself, “Aah, I am the one who needs to change, I need to pull that beam from my own eye and then I will see clearly,” until that happens you have not really started the path that I came to offer the world—the straight and narrow way that leads to eternal life.
