Ascended Master Jesus through Kim Michaels.
Shakespeare, who was an embodiment of Saint Germain, coined the immortal words: “All the world’s a stage.” I would add that all the world’s a stage—in which all the roles are defined by the fallen beings. I have said that in order for you to step onto the path of Christhood, you have to be willing to start defining your own role on earth instead of playing predefined roles. You especially have to stop playing the roles that the fallen beings have defined for human beings.
This is truly a challenge because the effect of the epic dramas is that the fallen beings have defined a large number of roles that are not seen as roles. Instead, they are seen as being real and as being mandated by God. The message being that you must continue to play these roles until the end of your life or until the epic objective has been achieved—which, as I have explained, will never happen. Many people are trapped in playing these roles—indefinitely.
Consider how easy it has been for the fallen beings to pull people into the epic dramas. All they have to do is to commit some kind of aggressive act against someone, and if that someone feels violated – feels victimized, feels attacked, feels unjustly treated – then that person will slip into the dualistic mindset and will then play the role of one of the dualistic identities that have been created over time.
Playing a pre-defined role
The beings who fell in the higher spheres created certain identities based on duality. These identities can be compared to the roles you have in a theater production where some people play the hero, some people play the villain, some people play the victims. Those who are trapped in duality are already – without realizing it – trapped in one of these dualistic identities, in one of these parts, one of these roles in the play.
When they act out that role in aggression against the innocents who are not yet trapped in such a role, there is a possibility – a strong possibility – that the innocent children will feel victimized by the aggressor and therefore will slip into the role of being a victim. Then they are trapped in the dualistic dramas of the ego. Now they see themselves in relation to – in opposition to – someone else who is in a dualistic role. Without knowing it, they slip right into one of these dualistic roles, such as the role of victim. Some slip into another role, that of the one who seeks revenge, or that of the one who seeks justice by somehow compensating for the wrongs done in the past by committing another wrong in the present.
This is the basic fabric of the ego—that it always plays one of these dualistic roles, it takes on one of these dualistic identities. You need to become wise as serpents so that you can see the unreality of the serpentine mind, the serpentine logic, that has created these varied dualistic parts and identities. You can then realize that you have taken this on as an actor in the theater takes on a costume, puts on make-up, puts on false teeth or a wig or a hump on the back in order to resemble the part it is meant to play.
When you see the unreality of this, when you become wise as a serpent – wise to the serpents – you realize that you are not the part you are playing, you are more than that part. That is when you can begin to contemplate the possibility of separating yourself from the part, even separating yourself from the entire play so that you can eventually walk out of the theater and say: “I have had enough of playing that old worn-out part. Find somebody else, for you will have to do without me. I am done with this. I have had enough!”
The game ends when you decide to stop playing
When will your struggles end? You have free will, do you not? When will your struggles end? When you decide that they will end, now! Can you make that decision right now? Perhaps not. But I tell you, there will come a now when you can make that decision—if you decide that it is going to happen now.
The universe is a mirror, which means that whatever you send out, the universe must reflect back. When you take on a certain role in the play, in the dualistic play, then the universe thinks that you want to experience the outer conditions that correspond to the role. If you feel like a victim of life or a victim of outer circumstances, the subconscious message you are sending into the cosmic mirror is that you want to experience what it is like to be a victim. The more victimized you feel, the more frustrated you feel, the universe can interpret that in only one way: “Oh, he wants to experience even more of a struggle, he wants to be victimized even more.”
Why does the universe interpret it that way? Because the cosmic mirror has absolute respect for your free will. As long as you are in that role, that identity of being the victim, the universe can only interpret it in one way, namely that you are not done playing the part of a victim. You still want to experience what it is like to be a victim. Naturally, the universe gives you what you want. It will continue to do so, even accelerating it, until you finally come to the point where you take responsibility and say: “Okay. I have been a victim for a long time, but it was because I made a decision that caused me to enter into that victim consciousness. I took on that part, I put on that costume. But I have had enough of it!” You then decide that you will no longer play that part.
Let me assure you that the universe is based on free will, which means that whenever you decide you have had enough, you are free to leave the theater. Even if it is the night before the big premiere, you are free to quit and say: “Enough of this madness!” This is why you need to be wise as a serpent. Because the serpents will do everything they can to make you believe in the lie that for this, that or the next reason you cannot just walk out of here, you cannot just walk out of that part. Once you have taken it on, it is permanent, you can never escape—or so they want you to believe.
This is why they have come up with so many clever illusions, including the mainstream Christian delusion that you cannot save yourself but that only Jesus, as the external savior, can save you. All of these Christians think they are headed straight for heaven. But they are still in the consciousness of being a victim, still feeling that there is some external force who is pulling them down to hell or pulling them up to heaven—when in reality it is themselves and their own consciousness that is pulling them up or down. Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also (Matthew 6:21).
