Ascended Master Saint Germain, April 12, 2009 through Kim Michaels.
Saint Germain, I AM. And I come to comment on the saying, “As a final touch, God created the Dutch.” Which really, my beloved, in its fullness should be, “As a final touch, God created the Dutch—and then he saw, that it was a bit too much.” The reality being, of course, that God did not create the Dutch. Nor did he create the English, or the French, or the Germans. For God created self-aware extensions of itself—beyond any of the divisions found on earth.
Thus, the key to The Golden Age, the key to peace, the key to the abundant life is to reconnect to your true identity as a spiritual being. Which is why this invocation gives that affirmation over and over. Truly, what will it take to manifest Saint Germain’s Golden Age? Well, it will take that the people of this world are willing to rise to a higher state of consciousness and overcome the division created by the artificial, man-made concept of nation states. Am I thereby saying, that there will be no nation states in The Golden Age? Indeed, I am. For within a century or two, the current nation states will dissolve and merge into a higher unity—or they will self-destruct in warfare and conflict.
The progression in consciousness
When you look back at the history of humankind, you will see a clear progression in consciousness. Go back thousands of years, where there were only scattered tribes living in the harsh environment, having no means of communication, no sense of awareness of what existed beyond their own small territory and their own tribe. Perhaps they came in contact with a few neighboring tribes, often being in conflict with them over territory or hunting rights.
Gradually – very slowly – the population grew and the awareness grew. Yet, if you go back to the time of Jesus, as Mother Mary mentioned yesterday, there was not the sense of awareness that you, today, take for granted as nation states. Consider the consciousness of the people before you had maps. You have grown up from an early age being shown maps of the world and of your own nation. So, you have grown up with the concept of a bird’s-eye view of this planet and what it looks like from above, seen from great height or even from space. And you have been used to seeing the lines drawn on the map, that mark the boundaries of your own nation.
But that was not there only a few hundred years ago. People could not even imagine what the earth looked like from above. Only a few souls started drawing maps, but most people did not have the awareness, that you take for granted. What I desire you to see is, that people started out with a very primitive tribal consciousness, which then gradually grew to a greater awareness, where many tribes might merge into the sense of a people, a greater people that lived in a certain area or migrated from area to area. But when the Bible, for example, talks about the land of Egypt, it is not the Egypt as the nation state you see today, for that awareness was not there.
The concept of nation states was a step forward in the growth – in the broadening – of awareness from the tribal level. Yet as you clearly see – especially in this past century, but also in previous centuries – the concept of a nation state can also be misused by the ego to create conflict and warfare. And thus, you will clearly see – with all of the warfare that the concept of nation states has given rise to – it can only be a temporary stage in the growth of the consciousness of humankind. For there must be a higher level, there must be something beyond.
Four nations are forerunners for taking the world beyond nation states
And I can assure you, that it is not the old model, that one nation conquers the world and rules the world. The age of colonization, the age of spreading communism – even the concept misunderstood by the former American administration of spreading freedom and democracy – surely must come to an end before The Golden Age can unfold. What, then, can replace the concept of nation states? It is a more universal awareness, that human beings come from the same source, a spiritual source—a source beyond the material world. And therefore, the material world is a means to an end, namely the growth in consciousness. And it is not an end in itself. For when it becomes a closed system, it will break down.
Thus, I come to give you a vision of the potential for starting this movement of overcoming nation states. Obviously, I attempted to start this here in Europe, centuries ago, as the Wonderman of Europe. And you see, that it is now beginning to manifest more clearly in the European Union, which – as its highest potential – can be a polarity to the United States. Where even though you have a strong national consciousness, the individual states are at least unified and not in direct conflict with each other—at least not, since the Civil War.
Something must begin to break down that national consciousness. And when you think about this logically, you see that one nation cannot do this alone. Thus, the vision I wish to give you is that the greatest potential for a stepping up into a higher awareness, a more universal awareness, is indeed that there are four nations in Europe, that are prepared to be the forerunners for this.
One of them, of course, being this nation, the Netherlands. But we might say, that the core of the Netherlands is indeed what you would call Holland. Where the greatest population is, and where there also is the greatest density of the spiritual people who have volunteered to embody here, to bring about this and other changes. Holland, then, represents the Mother element. But as you know, there are always the four elements—the Father, Mother, Son and Holy Spirit.
So although I know it will surprise many, the Father element is, indeed, Germany. Germany, of course, has the history of having a very strong national awareness that led to – or at least was the flash point for – both the first and second World Wars. But Germany was broken up after the second World War, and therefore the old sense of national awareness, in a sense, died. And even after the reunification, it was never recreated. For the German people do indeed have – at least the many spiritual people who have embodied among them – a desire to leave the past behind. And they want to grow away from that national awareness based on the sense of superiority, that they have so clearly seen out-pictured in their own nation—and that they truly desire to transcend.
Thus, you have Germany as the largest country, but Germany in itself cannot make that transition. And so you see, that Holland is a smaller nation right next to Germany, on the West. On the South you have Switzerland and Austria that represent the Holy Spirit. Where the highest mountains reach towards the heavens and the energies can descend, even the waters that become the rivers that run through Germany and out through Holland to the sea. And then on the North, you have the small country of Denmark that represents the Son, the Christ element.
Equality is essential for the Golden Age
So you see how these four countries – the three bordering the center of Germany – have a potential to bring forth a new awareness. And you will even see, that these countries have for a long time had that awareness of the equality of all men—and, of course, women as well. This is ingrained in their constitutions, in their national psyches. Especially the three smaller countries who can then help Germany overcome the last vestiges of the sense of division.
For even though in all of the three smaller countries you will see a certain perversion of the principle of equality, it should be obvious, that for there to be a Golden Age, there must be true equality among human beings. We cannot have a Golden Age as long as the majority of the population are suppressed and controlled by a small elite. And you will indeed see, that in some of these smaller countries, there has been a strong awareness in the population of the dangers of the elite, or the noble class of the middle ages and even the big industrialists and bankers and financiers. There is an awareness in the people of the need to establish equality, where all people are valued and all people are given equal opportunity, equal freedom.
Yet you will, of course, also see that this principle of equality and freedom can be taken too far, as it has been both in this nation and others. For freedom does not actually mean freedom to do whatever you want. If you exercise your so-called freedom to do whatever you want, well, then the material world becomes a closed circle. And then, the contracting force of the mother – or the second law of thermodynamics, as science calls it – will begin to break things down and this will take away your freedom.
This can be seen clearly in this nation, it can be seen clearly in Denmark, it can be seen clearly in Switzerland. And of course, it can be seen most clearly in Germany and in its past, where Nazism was the extreme example of taking away the people’s freedom in the guise of some greater, “noble” cause. And so you see, that it is necessary for the people to be awakened, to realize that there must be a new awareness and understanding of the true nature of freedom.
The nature of freedom
Freedom is the freedom to reach beyond the separate sense of self and realize you are more than that separate self—and then express that more in this world. That, my beloved, is freedom. What has happened in many nations is the perversion of this, where the power elite had taken away – through subtle and sometimes obvious means – people’s freedom to express their spirituality, their creativity. And therefore, they have given them a substitute of material freedom. Which of course is not material freedom at all, but they have then sought to use both religion and science to make the people believe, that the consequences of their “free” choices is not really the consequences of their choices, but something that happens that shouldn’t be there, that should be masked and camouflaged, as you see in the health field.
Where you see that people have been given the impression, that they can live any way they want, eat anything they want, and then when the body breaks down, they just go to the doctor who can supposedly give them some kind of remedy or cut out some part of the body to take away the symptom without even approaching the cause. The cause, of course, being consciousness. The people are not aware, that the material world is not material, the material world is mind—the basic substance of the material world is mind, is consciousness. And thus, the entire world is a projection of an image upon the Ma-ter light, the image held in the consciousness of a self-aware being or many self-aware beings.
The earth, then, being created by beings in the spiritual realm called the Elohim, projecting a pure and balanced image upon the Ma-ter Light to create the planet as a platform for the growth of self-aware beings, who had not yet risen to that point of Christ-awareness, where they see the oneness of all life. Thus, giving them a platform for experimentation with their free will, even through the sense of separation but also, of course, giving them feedback by having nature itself and their bodies out-picture the images and beliefs they hold in consciousness. Yet, because this very basic fact of life has been taken away from the people, how can the people exercise freedom, when they do not know that every material circumstance they experience is nothing more than a projection of the images held in their consciousness, individually and collectively? This then is the awareness that must be brought forth, that must be spread abroad, through the people, for many are ready to understand this.
The new message to be spread
You may find, that they will reject traditional religion. You may find, that some cannot tolerate the mention of the word God. But I tell you, it is because they are rejecting the traditional theistic view of God as the remote judgmental being in the sky. Yet many of these people know within their hearts, that there is a spiritual component to life, and it is only a matter of finding a way to express this, that helps them go beyond the traditional images of God and the spiritual side of life, to where they see the true universality of it.
And one key to this in Europe – that has been so dominated by Christianity for so long – is, of course, to restore a true understanding of the nature and mission of Christ, so that they can see in their outer minds what they already know in their hearts. So that they can see just how far the outer, official Christian churches have strayed from the inner reality, mission and message of Christ. There is such a crying need for this to be spoken freely, by those who are willing to acknowledge who they are and why they have come. For there is absolutely no way to manifest The Golden Age of Saint Germain without restoring – or we might say spreading for the first time – a true understanding of Christ.
The Golden Age is not something that can be brought forth on its own, independently of history. The Golden Age must be built on a foundation. And that foundation is, that at least the top ten percent of the population need to understand and know, that the central message of Christ was to be the example for all people to show, that they have access to their own higher beings—that they have access to God, directly within themselves. They do not need an outer intermediary, be it the state or political party, or a church. For the Kingdom of God is within you, as Christ said so many years ago.
That statement was never taken out of the official Bible. For those who attempted to manipulate the Bible could not even comprehend it themselves and thus did not see it as necessary to remove it. Yet it is the very center of the message of Christ. And it is the very key to establishing what I talked about earlier, the true equality among men, upon which the political system of the Golden Age must be built.
The master key to freedom and equality
Only when each person knows, that he or she has access to God directly within themselves; only then can there be true freedom and true equality. If the population believe, that they cannot access God directly but must access God through an external mediator of some kind, well, then they will be subject to being dominated by that external mediator. And whatever institution this might be, will inevitably be taken over by those people who lust after power, and who therefore will use that external institution to control the people, as indeed the Roman Catholic Church – from its inception by the Emperor Constantine – was meant as an instrument to control the people.
This must be seen. Someone must cry out, that the Pope has nothing on, and that the institution that he represents was flawed from its inception, was a deviation from the true mission of Christ. Where are those who dare make that cry? You, of course, have the potential to be among them, my beloved. As some of you have already done, at least in your own minds and among friends. But I tell you, there is a need to bring forth this awareness and to challenge not only the Catholic Church – for certainly we are not seeking to single out the Catholic Church – but to challenge the very institutionalized nature of Christianity—be it Protestant or Catholic or Fundamentalist or whatever you want to call it.
Look at the very idea that you are born in sin, and therefore are fundamentally flawed from the very beginning, fundamentally different from Jesus, who had an immaculate conception. I tell you: you all had an immaculate conception in the mind of your spiritual parents, when your lifestream first descended to this earth. Therefore, you can reclaim that birthright and say, “No, I was not born in sin. I do not accept that I am fundamentally different from Christ.” For do you not see, that the principle of equality cannot be completely understood or espoused as long as there is in the consciousness of the people, the concept that one person, even though he walked the earth in a physical body, was fundamentally different from all others?
Right there, you have, in the Christian religion, a concept that undermines the very reality of the mission of Christ and the very reality of the true principle of equality, that all men, all self-aware beings, all co-creators were created equal in the mind of God. Not in the sense that they were created alike, for each one is a unique individual, but in the sense that they are of equal value in the mind of God. Or rather, we should go beyond even the concept of value and comparison and recognize, that each lifestream was created out of the unconditional love, the unconditional mind, of God.
Ponder the mystery of unconditionality
For you are so used to thinking in terms of conditions, and I admonish you to stretch your minds and ponder the nature of unconditionality. For you will not fully lock in to your own higher being, until you begin to see beyond the conditions and recognize, that you were born out of unconditionality. You are unconditionally loved by your spiritual parents—unconditionally! And this is the key to your freedom. For it is the very key to escaping the main lie, that keeps people trapped in a lesser sense of identity. Which is the lie that you, in the present moment, are bound by the choices you made in the past.
And when people believe this – including the belief that they were born in sin, or any other belief, that makes it seem like there is a barrier to how far you can rise – well, when they believe this, they cannot transcend their current sense of identity. They cannot return to their true spiritual identity, for they cannot let the mortal identity die. And thus, they are destined to remain hanging on the cross, where they have put themselves and allowed their peers and their society and the mass consciousness of humankind as a whole to crucify them, by nailing them to that perverted image of what are the limitations of your four lower bodies, representing the four points of the cross. The cross, of course, being firmly anchored in the earth as a further symbol that you cannot rise.
But as Christ demonstrated on the cross, you can transcend the entire consciousness of the cross – the entire consciousness of duality – by giving up the ghost, letting the mortal identity die. And then knowing that you will be reborn as the spiritual being that you are. This is the true message of Easter: Not that Christ was crucified and suffered on the cross, but that he transcended the cross by giving up the ghost. Where – I say – in the Christian world is that message preached on this Easter Sunday? Where? Where are the preachers who understand this and to dare to say it from the pulpit?
Christ brought a message of liberation
Thus, I say, we need to raise up those, who will speak the true message of Christ: the message of liberation, the message of freedom. For until you understand the true message of Christ and its universality, you will not be free—and thus you cannot manifest The Golden Age. The message of Christ is truly universal. For so long now it has been identified with a particular religion, that is defined in opposition to other religions, that defines itself as the only true religion and therefore as superior to all others, creating an inevitable conflict with other religions. Who, of course, must reject that claim in order to maintain their own identity and keep their followers.
What Christ came to start was not that kind of religion. It was the universal way to transcend the old. To put off the old man and put on the new man and be reborn in Christ, a new being in Christ. Not the human being, but the spiritual being—who is beyond the body, beyond the material world, but is nevertheless here to express its divine qualities and thereby manifest the Kingdom of God here in the material frequency spectrum. Or rather, it is here to raise up the vibrations of the material frequency spectrum, until it begins to resonate with the Kingdom of God and The Golden Age, that is already manifest in the etheric realm.
Ah, my beloved, the wheels of time may sometimes seem to turn slowly. But in the words of the Buddha, “Time is not.” Yet cycles are real, and you are living at the interface between the old cycle and the new, where the old cycle is dying and the people are ready to embrace the new. You should once in a while take a pause and recognize just how fortunate you are, to be in embodiment at this incredible juncture in the cycles of humankind.
This is why you volunteered to take embodiment at this time. And although you may have experienced hardships in your life – that have caused you to forget this – once in a while, reconnect to that joy, that sense of purpose, that sense of incredible opportunity of seeing what it meant to be in embodiment at this time, feeling that drive from deep within your being. “Yes, I want to be part of this change.” And then embrace it. Embrace the opportunity to be here and to be part of the difference, part of the solution, part of the change, part of the rebirth and the resurrection of the Divine Mother.
So that we can put behind us the “Earth Mother” as a separate entity and instead restore the Divine Mother, who is one with the Divine Father. So you see yourself as an expression of the Divine Mother, because you know you have access to the Divine Father directly within yourself in the form of your higher being. You are, thus, not a separate being who is lost or born in sin, or in other ways limited by the material universe, for you are more and you can transcend. And in order to know the reality of this, you only need to go within and connect to the vibration of your own higher being, and know that this is what is real. And anything down here that does not resonate with that vibration is ultimately unreal, my beloved.
Thus, I dare say, you have had a sermon of the kind that should be preached in all of the institutions that claim to represent Christ. I do not say you need to go out and preach to the people, but I do admonish you to share who you are. Sharing is different from preaching, in the sense that you are not having any intention of how other people should react or respond. You are simply being the sun, my beloved. Let your light shine, do not hide it under a bushel. Let your light shine, for you are ready to shine and the world is ready to be shined upon.
Thus, my gratitude and the gratitude of all of us for raising up a platform, whereby we can manifest our Beings in a new way, in a more intense way through all of you. For our Beings are one with your higher beings. You are extensions of ourselves. We are not separate from you, my beloved. We are all one. We are all ONE.
