Ascended Master Mother Mary, April 11, 2009 through Kim Michaels.
You may look at yourselves, and how you get an inner prompting and then your outer mind says, “Oh no, that can’t be true. Not little old me. How could I possibly do something that affects the entire nation?” But you see, my beloved, as you integrate with your higher being, there comes a point, where you have to ask yourself: “Do I believe the spiritual teachings that I am following are true? Do I believe that the spiritual practices I am doing actually work? For after all, I have been following and studying spiritual teachings for some time. I have been practicing spiritual techniques. I have been working on my psychology. Do I believe that any of this works? Do I believe that it makes a difference?”
If the answer is “No,” well then stop doing it and go out and enjoy life. But if the answer is “Yes,” then recognize that you are transcending your former sense of self. And as you keep transcending the former sense of self, there must come a point, where you say, “I am not that little old me, who thinks that he or she can do nothing, because I was brought up to think I am nothing and cannot make a difference on earth. I am not that separate self, that has been programmed by the consciousness of anti-christ to deny that the Christ can be born within me. No, I am more than that separate self, and I am willing to recognize, that the Christ can indeed be born within me. And although the little old me of the separate self cannot make a difference in my nation, the Christ within me, God through me, can indeed make a difference.”
This does not mean, that you have to go on a crusade and go out as you see so many religious people go out and preach and try to convert everyone. It means that you simply have to recognize, that you can be more. And that you can be the open door, for saying something at the appropriate time, that will make a difference, not only in individual lives but also in society as a whole.
When you look at yourselves and you look at the growth in consciousness, do not fall into the trap of thinking, that you are the only ones who are growing in consciousness. This is a common mistake, that we see in many spiritual communities, where they see, “Oh, we are so different from people in society who just live the material life and drink and make merry. They reject us, they do not understand us. But at least we must be better than them, for we are spiritual and we are growing spiritually. Whereas they are not.”
Many people are ready to awaken
All life is interconnected. As Jesus said, “And I, if I be raised up, will draw all men unto me.” There is an underlying oneness of all life. As you have raised your consciousness, you have pulled up many others who are beginning to rise above the mass consciousness. But there is an Alpha-Omega action. You may look at yourselves, and if you are realistic you will see, that you could not have raised your own consciousness alone. If there had not been other people out there – who were also willing to raise their consciousness – then you could not have made the progress you have made.
It is, thus, an interactive relationship. And the image, the understanding, I want to give you here is, that there are many more people out there than you think, who have raised their consciousness at inner levels, but who have simply not come to a conscious outer recognition of the process, of their potential, of the spiritual side of life. But they are very close to breaking through. Which means that one remark, one article, one writing, one expression, one book from you, can make a difference, can reach these people and certainly awaken them as you, yourselves, experienced an awakening—where you went from not being consciously aware of the spiritual side of your nature, to suddenly being aware of it and feeling like a whole new life had opened up to you.
So many people out there are ready for that awakening. But you see, what they are ready for is not some religious rebel-rouser or hellfire-and-brimstone preacher, for they are past that level of consciousness. They are ready for someone who has not studied spirituality but who has lived it. And who is expressing it, not in a willful, forceful manner where you say to yourself, “Oh I have to go out and save the world and restore Christianity for Jesus, or bring The Golden Age for Saint Germain, or restore the Divine Mother for Mother Mary.” But you do it in a way, where you are simply letting it flow from within, daring to be who you are, daring to express your higher being instead of using the outer mind to think, that you have to do or be a certain way.
