Ascended Master Saint Germain, December 15, 2007 through Kim Michaels.
What has kept the people in ignorance for thousands of years, is that a small elite have prevented the people from realizing and accepting their built-in divinity and their Christ potential to escape any limitations, to go beyond any institutions on this earth, by connecting to a reality that is beyond the material universe and therefore can never be subject to, or restricted by, any institutions in this world. The only way for the people to be truly free is to connect to something that cannot be controlled by any philosophy or institution on this earth, something that is beyond any philosophy or force that springs from the consciousness of anti-christ?
My Beloved, only by reaching beyond this world, can the people be truly free. And they can reach beyond this world only when they discover, understand and fully accept the reality that Jesus attempted to teach humankind 2,000 years ago, namely that the Kingdom of God is within you. You might look at the people – for example in South America – who have grown up in a small village, where they have lived in poverty their whole lives. And you might look at those people and see the immense distance between their current standard of living, between their current outlook on life, and the standard of living found in some of the rich nations and among some of the people who are more educated and more enlightened. And you might look at that distance and say, “How could they ever overcome that and manifest a more abundant life?”
But you see, it all starts in consciousness. And it all starts with the top 10 percent of the most spiritually aware people, many of whom are precisely the people I have talked about—who are somewhat enlightened, but who have been trapped in intellectual philosophies and therefore are not aware that they are part of the spiritual top 10 percent. Those are the people who can bring forth a change, that will start at the highest level and will spread to all levels of society, and therefore, inevitably, will pull the people up to a different outlook on life. And it will also change conditions in society, so that all people have an opportunity to create a more abundant life for themselves because they live in a society that rewards effort.
The people who have grown up under the most poor conditions, have been programmed to believe that no matter how hard they work, they cannot get ahead, for they are boxed in by limitations over which they have no control. But as I explained at the very beginning, the universe is a mirror. And if you project into the cosmic mirror that you are boxed in by physical limitations over which you have no control, well then, my beloved, the universe can do only one thing—it can reason that you want to experience physical conditions that box you in, and so it gives you what you want because it is forever responsive to the Law of Free Will.
So how can you change status quo? Well, only by helping the people overcome that sense of hopelessness, that sense that nothing matters, that they can never get ahead. Once you create a shift in society, where there is a change in the people’s mindset – and there is a change in physical conditions and the laws of society, so that people can see that by working harder, by making an effort, they can actually get ahead – well then, you have the beginning of a fundamental change, that can very quickly shift a society away from being weighted down by the consciousness of lack into beginning to believe in the consciousness of abundance.
