Ascended Master Mother Mary, April 16, 2006, through Kim Michaels.
My Beloved, I know that when you look at life, when you look at the earth from your perspective of being involved in the consciousness that is still so prevalent on earth, namely the consciousness of duality, it can be difficult to see the great hope of the resurrection both on a personal and planetary scale. I know how it feels, for I too was indeed burdened when I stood before the cross with Jesus hanging upon it, almost covered in blood, looking very distraught as he called out, “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?”
But I must tell you that I could not allow myself to let my feelings slide into any negativity whatsoever. For it was my task to hold the immaculate concept for Jesus until the very moment when he gave up the ghost—and even beyond it, to the moment of his resurrection and later his ascension. Thus, even though a part of me was responding as any normal mother would – by watching her son tortured and nailed to the cross – there was a higher part of my being that never, ever wavered from seeing the immaculate concept of Jesus’ victory over the last enemy called death.
The broad way to destruction
My Beloved, every Easter, there are indeed many people who think back to how I must have felt when I met Jesus on his road to Golgotha and later stood at the foot of his cross watching him die. Every Easter I feel the outpouring of love and compassion that so many feel when they reenact or contemplate this scenario. Many of those who are mothers think about how they would have felt if their own son had been treated like this. And thus, they send me a wave of compassion. And while I appreciate their loving hearts, I must tell you that I feel much greater compassion for each one of you, who are still in embodiment and who are still trapped in the duality consciousness.
I even feel a special compassion for the many Christians who contemplate Jesus’ death and my own affliction. Yet they do not understand that these events happened a very long time ago and both Jesus and I are now ascended beings who are free from the pain of the duality consciousness and the human ego. Thus, we have won our immortal freedom and we no longer need compassion or sympathy from human beings. On the contrary, it is human beings who need our compassion, for you are still trapped—trapped in the duality of the human consciousness because you have not conquered the last enemy called death. This is truly the spiritual death caused by the ego, the illusion of separation from God that leads people to walk the false path, the way that seemeth right unto a man but the ends thereof are the ways of death.
Thus, I must tell you that there are so many people on this planet who are walking this false path of death. And truly, this is cause for compassion from all of us in the ascended realm. I must tell you that the way that seemeth right unto a man is the way that Jesus called the broad way, the wide gate that leads to destruction. What is that broad way? There are many Christians who believe that the broad way is any religion besides their own, even besides their own particular branch of Christianity.
But I must tell you that it is not so. The broad way that leads to destruction is not followed simply by people who are not religious or by people who do not belong to Christianity or even any other particular religion. The broad way that leads to destruction is indeed followed by many people who consider themselves to be highly religious and who faithfully attend their Church services in whatever Church they profess to be the only true Church and the only road to salvation. The unfortunate truth about religion on this planet is that religion has been so heavily influenced by the duality of the human ego and the subtle illusions of the mind of anti-christ that almost every religion on this planet has become the broad way that leads to destruction.
This broad way is the path that makes people believe that they can be saved, that they can enter the kingdom of God, that they can attain eternal life without overcoming the very condition that caused them to be separated from that eternal life, to be separated from God’s kingdom, in the first place. That condition is, of course, the human ego which is born out of your separation from God.
