Ascended Master Patrick, May 18, 2007 through Kim Michaels.
But I tell you, my beloved, we are not out to produce an impressing display in front of 50,000 people, where we have people fall over and jump out of wheel chairs. For that is not our aim with Aquarian age movements. Our aim is to awaken those who do not need these outer manifestations. Because, as I said yesterday, they know what is true in their hearts.
What is it we desire to see for modern spiritual movements. Well, we do not desire to see one or two people who have the flow of the Spirit. We desire to see many who have the flow of the Spirit in various forms and capacities. The same God that is in me is in you. The same God that was in Christ Jesus when he walked the earth is in you right now at this moment. The difference is that Jesus was willing to say, “Not my will but thine be done. I and my Father are one, so my Father can do whatever he wants to do through me. And whatever words I receive from my Father, I will speak them to the people.”
Jesus was willing to let the God in him out of the box. When you become willing to do the same thing, surely that God will work through you, according to your divine plan. So the question is, again, when will you be willing to do this? When will you be willing to let go of your expectations and your conditions? For those expectations and conditions have exactly the effect of preventing God from working through you, for God will not violate your free will. If you have an expectation that the Holy Spirit should flow only in certain ways, well then the Holy Spirit will not flow through you. It simply cannot be, for in the Aquarian Age, the Holy Spirit will only flow through those who are in the River of Life, the river of self-transcendence, and who are willing to demonstrate that river by being willing to transcend themselves on a daily basis, never saying “This cannot be done,” never saying “This should be such and such.”
Do not be disturbed by anything, do not be disturbed by a sudden noise, do not be disturbed by other people’s reactions and their thoughts. Being who you are is the absolute requirement for making your ascension. You cannot enter the kingdom of God permanently until you have demonstrated that you are willing to be the Christ in front of the world and the condemnation of the world. For only in being willing to demonstrate that, to endure the scorn and the ridicule and the persecution of the world, can you truly demonstrate to yourself that you have attained total non-attachment to the things of this world.
The ultimate test is to let those who are the scornful do and say whatever they want to say, and just turn the other cheek. For when you feel in your Being that no matter what they send at you, it will not touch that infinite peace in your heart, well then you know that you have overcome your expectations, your attachments, your conditions.
And that is when you can then fulfill the final requirement for the ascension. Which is that you are willing to turn away from this world, to face the gate to the spiritual world and take that final step that brings you through that gate forever, so that you permanently leave the earth behind. This is sometimes the most difficult test. And I can assure you that even for Jesus and myself this was a difficult test, for we still had a desire to see our work come to fruition and benefit other people.
But in the end, we had to be willing to say that if nothing visible had come out of our efforts on this earth, we were still willing to leave the earth behind. For if we had not been willing to do this, what would have happened? Well, we would have had to come back into embodiment, would we not? Until we came to the point where we felt we could let go of the expectations and the conditions and walk that final step that permanently raised us above this world, regardless of the conditions in this world.
I thank you for enduring with me during this long discourse, but I wanted to give you a feel for my true Being. And so I deemed it more comfortable for you that I did not do that on the mountain yesterday. Once again, I seal you in the ascension coil of Patrick, the ascended master. I give you a portion of my Peace, the peace that I found inside myself, the peace that helped me become non-attached to the serpents of this world, therefore rising above them as if they had never existed. Thus, I say to you, “BE in the Peace of the ascended master Patrick.” Thus, it is done!
