And how is the consciousness going to shift? Well, only by those who see themselves as the forerunners of Aquarius being willing to question the way they look at everything, to question what limits their imagination. Be willing to question what limits your imagination. This is, right now, possibly the greatest service you could render to the ascended masters and to humankind. Question what limits your imagination, including questioning what already limits your perception. For if you will not question your current perception, how could you ever free your imagination to soar beyond what you perceive as the limits for life? How then, will you question your perception? Let me suggest two areas, where you might begin: Church and state, religion and politics. These two are like two sides of the coin of life. They truly represent the Alpha and the Omega, the masculine and the feminine.
Politics may be a too limited word, for truly what it involves is everything that is the feminine aspect of life, the practical, outer expression of life in your personal life, in society, in politics, in technology, in education, in the family—in every practical aspect of life; this is the Omega aspect, the Divine Mother. The Alpha aspect, the Divine Father aspect, is not simply religion – as it has traditionally been conceived – but every aspect of how you imagine your potential. As we have recently said, the masculine is “what can be done,” the feminine is “how it can be done.” And this is the highest potential of Church and state, where Church, religion, is meant to represent the masculine, that gives you a vision of what to do. And then, state, or the feminine, gives you the practical vision of how it can be done, how you desire to express it.
What, then, is the primary preconceived idea, that you might question? Well, it is another aspect of the fallen consciousness, namely that there is only one right way to do it. This is, again, tied in to what I have explained about the judgmental consciousness, that wants to set up a standard for what is right and wrong, and evaluate everything based on that standard. Take that consciousness, make an effort to see it as an expression of the fallen consciousness, and then realize, that I am not here talking about going into the opposite extreme of saying that anything goes. For, when you reach for the Alpha of the vision of the Spirit, you know what can be done, what should be done and what is not right because it will not provide growth for yourself or for other aspects of life. But even when you see what can be done, and what is right from a higher perspective, there are still many ways that it can be done.
Many times we see our spiritual students have a correct vision of what should be done, but they cannot agree on how it should be done. And then, what do they do? Well, they fall prey to the belief, that there can only be one right way to do it, and that even we of the ascended masters have only one right way to run an organization, for example. And thus, what happens? There is the inevitable division into factions, where one faction will say: “Our way is the way the masters want.” And the other faction will say: “No, our way is the way the masters want.” And so, they are locked in a battle, they are divided amongst themselves, and therefore the house cannot stand, their organization cannot reach its full potential.
Realize, that there will be many different ways to do the same thing, that can all be valid and all be a contribution. For we realize, that in the fallen consciousness there is this underlying mentality, that there is only one right way to do it, and that all should conform to it. Is this not, my beloved, what we have exposed recently in Rome, in the Roman Catholic Church, of the suppression of individuality by the structure? The submission to the structure, thereby the individual suppressing its individual creativity in order to conform to the structure.
Well, if you are ascended master students, question the idea, that in the Aquarian age there will be only one valid religion. Question the idea that we of the ascended masters want to see the emergence of one religion. Question the idea that we of the ascended masters want to see all people recognize the ascended masters and one particular teaching of the ascended masters as the superior religion of the Aquarian age.
In the Golden Age, diversity will be seen as the greatest potential
Do you see the fallacy of the fallen consciousness? What is the essence of the fallen beings and their desire for control? They must suppress not only free will, but individual creativity. Each one of you is an individualized extension of the Creator’s Being. What makes up your individuality? Certain characteristics, a certain crystalline structure, as the Great Divine Director explained recently. Your individuality is the crystalline structure, and when the light of God shines through it, your individual crystalline structure can bring forth an expression that is unique, that is not in competition with others, that does not exclude or destroy or obscure the expression of others. But they all compliment each other, forming a beautiful facet of life.
This concept cannot be fathomed by the fallen consciousness, for to the fallen consciousness diversity can be seen only as a threat—whereas in the ascended consciousness, diversity is seen as the ultimate expression of God. Why did the Creator choose to individualize its own being? Because the Creator wanted to express itself as many individual facets, having them all form, each, a facet of the diamond mind of God. The Creator has given you free will, because the Creator desires to see variety, individuality, diversity.
This is the Creator’s desire; that is why the Creator has expressed itself as many individual co-creators. The Creator could have sat there, as the Creator, and created an entire world – it could even have populated it with robots – where everything was perfect. But the Creator did not desire to do this, partly because the Creator realizes, that such a mechanical creation gets awfully boring after a while. Nevertheless, the Creator decided to express itself through diversity. And so, we of the ascended masters are committed to seeing that expression.
And what is it, that is the essential challenge of humankind? You look back at history, and you see, that what has brought about progress is diversity. The Egyptian civilization may seem to have built great structures, but it did so by suppressing individuality, except for a very few. And the Egyptian civilization collapsed, as did the Roman civilization and other civilizations of antiquity. What have you seen in western civilization of today: a greater and greater expression of individuality, of diversity.
This is the vision that I hold for the Aquarian age. This is the age of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit bloweth where it listed, the Holy Spirit does not like to be confined by these monolithic structures. It wants to express itself through individuals, yet an expression where the individual does not see itself as a separate being – which is the product of the ego and the duality consciousness – but sees itself as an expression of the whole. And therefore, the individual expressions on earth will see their expressions as facets of a whole. And that is how the Age of Aquarius also becomes the age of community.
Come ye into unity by knowing, that you are expressions of the same source. It is not “come into unity by being the same,” that is what the fallen ones have attempted to achieve on this earth for eons. That is precisely what Christ embodied in order to challenge—to show that you as an individual have a right to go against the power elite, to go against the mass consciousness, to go against everything that wants to suppress individual creativity. You have a right to do as Jesus did, to express your individuality, even if it flies in the face of all conventions of your society. You have a right to go into the most holy temple and overturn the tables of the moneychangers, who have set themselves up in that temple, where they have no right to be.
This is the promise of individual creativity, this is the potential. Christ demonstrated it 2,000 years ago, you – who call yourselves spiritual people, or ascended master students, or whatever you call yourselves, but you who consider yourselves to be the more aware people in this age – you are meant to demonstrate today what Christ demonstrated 2,000 years ago. You are not meant to demonstrate, that you can do what people have been doing for 2,000 years, namely submit yourself to a Pope or a structure. You are meant to demonstrate individual creativity and your willingness to express it.
