Ascended Master Jesus, December 25, 2005 through Kim Michaels.
The true spiritual teachers of this planet have always taught the path of oneness, and an essential aspect of this path is selflessness, where you realize that you are one with all life and therefore the only way to truly raise yourself is to raise all of life. For only then will you have fully grown. My Beloved hearts this is the essential path—selfless service.
Inasmuch as ye have done it unto the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me—that is how you must feel, and you must then look around you and say, “How can I help raise up other parts of life?” And it might give you some humility to take a look at the many people in the world who are seeking to solve concrete physical problems, be it starvation, poverty, child abuse, disease or any other things. I must tell you, there are many people in the world who are working selflessly to improve the conditions of humankind. And even though they are not following an outer spiritual teaching or belonging to a particular religion, they have internalized the path of selfless service and they are demonstrating it in their lives.
So when you recognize this, you might be humble and ask yourself, “I have followed the spiritual path for some time now. What have I done to elevate the rest of life?” And I am not hereby saying that you need to go out and battle these concrete physical problems, for there are other people whose mission and karma it is to solve these problems. But what I suggest you do is that you say, “How can I use my experience on the spiritual path? How can I use the teachings that I have internalized and the love I have garnered to inspire other people to awaken to the spiritual path, to the spiritual side of life?”
I am not hereby talking about getting people to join a specific Church, religion or organization, I am talking in the broadest sense of helping people discover the universal path that transcends outer teachings and organizations. What can God do through you to elevate other people and help them grow spiritually? That is the question to ponder. And then you need to look at your approach to the spiritual path and change it, so that you do not seek to elevate the individual self but seek to elevate all.
