Ascended Master Jesus, March 23, 2008 through Kim Michaels.
Greetings, my beloved, on this Easter Morning—meant to symbolize my resurrection from the grave, from the tomb. But yet I, Jesus, did not come to this earth to symbolize this for myself, I came to symbolize the potential – for all human beings – to let the human self, the mortal self, die. And thereby be resurrected – not into a new physical life or spiritual life in some higher realm – but to be resurrected into a new sense of identity, where you no longer deny the reality that you are a co-creator with God.
Thus, you acknowledge that the kingdom of God is within you, that you are one with your father, that your father has worked hitherto, and that you are willing to work by being the co-creator that you were sent here to be. So that you can play a part in bringing the kingdom of God to earth. This is the purpose for which I came, this is the purpose for which I went through the physical events of the crucifixion, my death on the cross—in order to symbolize what is possible for all human beings spiritually.
Christ unifies the Divine Father and the Divine Mother
For you see, 2,000 years ago, it was indeed necessary to give people physical, visible, outer manifestations, or they would have not been able to lock in to the potential for overcoming death, the consciousness of death. But of course, in giving those outer manifestations, it was foreseeable and inevitable, that many people would focus on the outer manifestations, failing to see the hidden symbolism behind them, and thereby failing to see the universal aspects of my mission and message, thinking that it only applied to the Jews, thinking that certain things only applied to me, or that certain things only applied to Christians.
The Christ consciousness is universal. The entire idea of the Christ Consciousness is, that it unifies the material and the spiritual. It unifies what you might call the Divine Father, and the Divine Mother, so that there is no separation between the Creator and its creation. For of course, as it is stated in the Gospel of John, without him was not anything made that was made.
And that is precisely why the kingdom of God is within you, because God – God’s being, and God’s Presence – is embedded within everything. And it is only a religion that is based on separation, that could have turned Christianity into a monotheistic religion, thereby raising up the graven image of the external God, the angry, remote being in the sky, looking down upon you, ready to judge you for any transgression and send you to a hell for all eternity.
My Beloved, it is time that the Christian people, those who call themselves Christians today, wake up to the reality of my true message—that I did not come to create another religion that denies their Christ potential, as the Jewish religion did at the time (and still does, for that matter). I came to awaken all people to the potential to find the kingdom of God within you, and thereby become an extension of that kingdom on earth, the co-creator who co-creates that kingdom and brings it into manifestation. Thereby giving the abundant life to all people, both the abundant material life and the abundant spiritual life.
God sees no difference between spiritual and material
In God’s mind, in God’s vision, there is no difference between the material and the spiritual. This is an illusion created from the duality consciousness, the consciousness of separation, that was brought to this planet by the fallen beings from higher spheres, but that has also been espoused by many people on this earth. Only the duality consciousness makes it possible for the ego to exist. And the duality consciousness also gives the ego the potential for creating the illusion, that the ego has attained what it craves the most, namely some kind of superior status, compared to other people on earth.
That is precisely why so many people in so many different areas of the world – and in so many cultures and religions – will not let go of the duality consciousness. This even applies to those who call themselves Christians. They will not let go of the duality consciousness, for if they were to let go of it, they would have to realize and recognize, that the salvation I brought to this earth is not exclusive to themselves, to the members of their own particular little church—that they have defined for themselves, thinking that they can thereby exclude all others from being saved.
What does it then take to overcome that duality consciousness? Well, it takes a recognition, a realization, that God the Father was never separated from God the Mother. What has happened in the duality consciousness is, that you have created these gender roles, and you have created these images – dualistic images – that makes it almost impossible for us to communicate the reality, the spiritual reality. For when we say a word, you immediately start – you meaning the people on earth – to impose your dualistic images upon them. So when I say “God the Father,” immediately people project an image based on the gender roles that have been defined in human society. And when I say “God the Mother,” they project another image based on their image of women. But those images are both dualistic, are both unbalanced, and thus they cannot lead you to the correct understanding of what it actually takes to be saved as the Christians call it. Which truly means that you enter the kingdom of God, which as I said is within you, as the symbol for the fact that the kingdom of God is not a physical state, is not a spiritual state—it is a state of consciousness.
It is not that you have to travel somewhere physically in order to enter the kingdom of heaven. It is not even that you have to shed the body and ascend to some spiritual realm in order to enter the kingdom of heaven. The message I came to bring to earth was embodied in the saying I preached in my early days, where I said, “The Kingdom of God is at hand.” Meaning, you can experience it right now by entering the state of consciousness that is the Kingdom of God.
And what is that state of consciousness? It is the state where you have overcome the illusion of this world, the illusion created by the prince of this world, so that you overcome the illusion that God in the Father aspect, in the Alpha aspect, could ever be separated from God in the Mother, Omega aspect. It is true, that there are two aspects of God. There is the one Creator which is the Infinite, which is in-divided, in-divisible. But yet that infinite Creator has expressed itself in the world of form, but in so doing has expressed itself as form, has embedded its own Being in form, has created everything out of its own Being. And therefore, even though there is still an aspect of God that is the undivided Creator, nevertheless God has also divided itself into the world of form, the Ma-ter light that has taken on form.
The role of Christ is to unify Spirit and matter
God the Father is not separated or distinct from God the Mother in the way you think of it, based on gender roles on earth. God the Mother is another expression of God the Father, and your role as self-aware beings in the matter realm is to awaken to the reality, that you are extensions of God the Creator. And thus, you can be the open doors for God the Creator to bring its kingdom into manifestation on earth. But you can be those open doors only, when you overcome the sense of separation from your source, from your Creator, so that you finally say, “I and my Creator are One.” And you recognize that you were never separated in reality.
If God is infinite, it must mean that the Creator is everywhere, so how could you ever be separated from the Creator, separated from your source? It cannot happen, except as an illusion created in the mind that is based in separation. So you see, how this relates to the topic of restoring the Divine Mother, the Divine Feminine. For in order to walk the path of Christhood, you have to overcome the illusion that the Divine Mother – that the feminine aspect of God, that the matter realm – could ever be separated from the Father, the Creator.
You then become the open door for spreading that truth to others, for giving that life-giving truth to others, that they too might be awakened, and realize that they are extensions of God the Father. But when they attain union with that God the Father, then they become God the Mother, they become the representatives of God in the matter realm. And thus you become the Father-Mother God in embodiment. You become the union of the Father-Mother God right here in this realm.
This is the role of the Christed being. This, my beloved, is the true path to Christhood. There are levels of the path, but as you go towards the higher levels of the path to Christhood, you need to integrate the Father and Mother aspects of your being. You realize that your lower being – the identity you have built in order to express yourself in this world – needs to come into oneness with God the Father, whereby you actually become God the Mother in the pure sense of God the Mother.
The Divine Mother is always pure
Be not confused by appearances; do not judge after appearances. Make the subtle distinction here. Everything you see around you in the material realm is created out of the Ma-ter light that has taken on form. The Ma-ter light is an expression of God the Mother—in a sense we can say, that the Ma-ter light in its pure form IS God the Mother. Yet God the Mother has vowed to allow the self-aware beings, the co-creators, to experiment with their free will and thus take on any form that they impose upon it through the power of their minds. And thus, what you see on planet earth is manifestations of God the Mother, but not in a pure form, not in a form that is in accordance with the vision of God the Father, or the immaculate concept of God the Mother.
So you cannot look at the imperfections on earth and say that this is God the Mother. God the Mother can never be in any impure form, even though God the Mother allows her energies, her light, to take on an impure form in order to give God’s co-creators the opportunity to reap what they have sown. Yet God the Mother forever remains pure, remains undefiled by any imperfect manifestation in this world. God the Mother has always been pure—and will always remain pure. And when you obtain the Christ consciousness and see that there is no separation between God the Father and God the Mother, well, then you become the purity of God the Mother in embodiment. You become an expression of the purity of God the Mother.
Whether you are in a male body or a female body has no impact on this whatsoever. You still – when you attain the Christ consciousness – you become God the Mother in embodiment. For do you see, that the Creator in its pure infinite in-divided form does not express itself in this world? It is the Creator expressing itself as God the Mother, that has created the world of form. And thus, you need to even go beyond the expressions of God the Father and God the Mother, and perhaps find a more universal expression, such as the infinite God and the expressed God, the manifest God.
Your oneness with the expressed God
You, as self-conscious beings, are evolving towards God consciousness. And when you obtain that God consciousness, you can experience the Creator in its pure form. But as long as you are in embodiment in the world of form, you do not experience the Creator in its pure form, you experience the Creator in its expressed form as God the Mother. And that truly is the God that you become one with while you are still in embodiment.
You will know that I said, “I and my Father are One.” The reality behind that statement is, that when you are in embodiment, you hold a female polarity with the beings in the spiritual realm, namely the ascended masters. So when I said “I and my Father are One,” I acknowledged my oneness with my teacher and guru, Lord Maitreya—my oneness with my I AM Presence, my oneness with my spiritual lineage that leads all the way to the Creator. And thus, in acknowledging that oneness, I acknowledged the oneness of Spirit and matter, the spiritual realm and the matter realm. But what I am talking about here is an even deeper awareness of God as the infinite, unexpressed Creator and God as the expressed Creator—that has expressed itself in the finite world. And thus, it forms a different polarity than the polarity between the spiritual realm and the matter realm.
So you see, again, there are layers, there are wheels within wheels, but you need to contemplate here that your goal as Christed beings is to work towards the state of consciousness, where you have unified the two aspects of God—that have traditionally been seen as masculine and feminine, Alpha and Omega, Father and Mother. You no longer see any separation, even any difference, between them, because you realize that they have become one in your being. For that is the Christ consciousness—it unifies the two aspects of God, so that you overcome the illusion – that is possible only in the world of form – that any form could be separated from its source.
Salvation through the Divine Feminine
What I am telling you here is that the path to salvation, that I came to bring to this planet, was indeed the path to personal Christhood, but the path to personal Christhood is not a path that can be walked without the Divine Feminine. What has happened to Christianity is, that instead of becoming the religion it was meant to be, it became an extension of the Jewish religion. Which was a religion focused on the Father aspect of God and the denial of the Divine Feminine, that sprang from the falsified version of the Garden of Eden story, which blames Women and the Feminine for the fall of Man.
And thus, Christianity became another religion that denies the Divine Feminine. This was not my original intent, and that is why it is true – as some people are beginning to realize – that I had an entirely different view of women and women’s role in spirituality and religion, than what has been portrayed by the Catholic and later Christian Churches. They are almost all based on blaming women for the fall, and therefore raising man and the male aspect to some superior status, using it as an excuse for suppressing women physically and spiritually.
When you obtain Christhood, you rise above the gender roles on earth. It no longer matters whether you are in a male or female body, for you rise beyond human sexuality, and you do not see yourself as one or the other. It is simply of no consequence what your body is, or what your sexuality is, as it is so commonly discussed today. For it no longer has importance when you obtain that state of oneness, when you obtain that union of the Father-Mother, the Feminine-Masculine, the Outer and the Inner. And you realize that there was never a separation, for how could God be separated from itself, when God is infinite and thus is everywhere and thus must be in everything—and not the remote being in the sky.
That is why I said, that the Kingdom of God is within you. For as long as you picture God as the remote being in the sky, you will never obtain union with that God. You will only obtain that union, when you find the God that has expressed itself as You – as form – and you acknowledge your union with that God. Then you overcome the sense of separation. Then the masculine and feminine come together in perfect union, in perfect harmony. Then the inner has become the outer, and the outer has become the inner, as is quoted in the book of Thomas—and then you overcome that separation. Now you know who you are, now you know why you are here. And at that moment, you are reborn, as I attempted to explain to Nicodemus—who could not understand it because he could not separate himself from the linear, analytical mind based on duality and separation.
But what did I say, my beloved? “No man can ascend back to heaven save he that descended from heaven.” Only the conscious self can ascend back to heaven. And it can only ascend back to heaven when it realizes that it was never separated from heaven, it was never separated from its source, for it is an extension of the Creator’s own Being. That is when you are reborn into realizing who you always were, who you always have been. But this does not mean that you then disappear, for it now means that you can take the individuality you have created in the world of form and raise it up and resurrect it, so that it becomes one with the divine individuality anchored in your I AM presence. But in order for that to happen, you must let the unreal individuality – the individuality that is based on separation and duality, the mortal human self, the ego – you must let that identity die on the cross by giving up the ghost—the ghost that is some sense that you are separated from God.
And when you finally give up that ghost, then the human self will die. Then you can be reborn into knowing who you are, and then the Divine Mother and the Divine Father will come into perfect union in your being, and you will be as above so below. You will be here below all that you are above.
Today’s Christianity cannot lead people to salvation
What I am saying here is, that the Christianity that you have today has deliberately been perverted in denying the importance of the Divine Feminine, in denying the teachings I have just given you. And which I did give in a veiled form 2,000 years ago, and which some of my disciples did indeed grasp and did indeed teach to others—although, again, few people understood it at the time.
So you see the consequence here: the Christianity you have today, the male-dominated form of Christianity, can never lead people to salvation! Do you understand my beloved? It can never fulfill its promise of leading people to salvation. It is impossible, it is a false promise—and every Christian Church that promises salvation to its members is making a false promise. Christianity can only fulfill its potential, when the role of the Divine Feminine is restored in Christianity.
This does not necessarily mean, that we need to have a role-reversal, where suddenly women take over all positions formerly held by men. But it does mean, that we need to create a new Christianity, where it is of no consequence whether you are in a male or female body, for you can hold any position, fulfill any role in that religion, in that movement.
Only women can restore Christianity
The Christian Churches of today are so stuck in this male-dominated mindset, that the only way they could possibly transcend is that women are acknowledged as being completely equal to men, and are allowed then to hold any position in Christian churches. This has the potential, that they can balance the male element and eventually bring balance to the churches. But it is a rather low probability that the mainstream Christian churches will be willing to make that transition.
Thus, is it far more realistic to expect that new Christian churches need to spring up, new movements need to spring up, so that people come out of the old churches and join new churches, new movements. This does not mean that I envision most mainstream Christians joining a movement that recognizes direct revelation from the ascended masters. For many Christians are not ready for this, but I tell you clearly as also emphasized by Mother Mary and Kuan Yin, that women hold the key to the potential for transforming Christianity.
And thus, I ask you, who are the more spiritually aware people, to envision that women are raised up in all Christian churches, and that they either are allowed to transform the churches, or that women stand up and say, “We must then come apart from these inflexible rigid churches, and start and find a new way to approach the mysteries of Christ, so that we can unify the Divine Feminine and the Divine Masculine.”
This is the vision I desire you to hold on this Easter Sunday and beyond—that the Divine Mother is restored in the Christian religion. Especially that the value of the Divine Mother is finally recognized and understood, recognizing also that it is not only women who can be in contact with or be extensions of the Divine Mother. But that both men and women must become extensions of the Divine Mother, as I have explained it in this discourse. For only when both men and women are balanced in the Divine Feminine and the Divine Masculine, will you reach your full potential individually and as a spiritual movement, that can pull up the collective consciousness. So that you can be the top ten percent who pull up the eighty percent of the people and bring forth the judgement of the lowest 10 percent. So that if they will not change, they will be removed from this planet and have opportunities elsewhere.
Hold the vision of a resurrected Christianity
Thus my beloved, hold that vision. Hold the vision, that Christianity will be resurrected, that there will be an awakening so that as a critical mass of people in all Christian churches, or at least in as many as possible, will be willing to give up the ghost of the old male-dominated unbalanced Christianity. They will be willing to let that identity, that mass identity, die, so that the movement that I came to start can be resurrected, and we can have a truly balanced spiritual movement. Where the Father and Mother, the Masculine and Feminine, work in perfect harmony and union, so that people can overcome separation between matter and spirit, between the Creator and its creation, between the unexpressed God and the expressed God in all of its expressions. So that all of its expressions are indeed aware of themselves as expressions of the One indivisible God.
This is the vision I hold. This is the vision Mother Mary holds. I ask you to also hold that vision, and see that this movement will start, especially with the women in Christian churches who will wake up and say, “The old ways are no longer working! This cannot go on. We must take on a more active role, not in setting up ourselves against the men, but in helping the men see, that they too are trapped in their traditional roles. And they too would experience greater freedom by rising above them, by going beyond them, by simply letting that ghost die, that is holding them nailed to the cross of an unbalanced religion, an unbalanced world view.” This is my call, this is my vision.
And I also wish to extend my great gratitude to all of you who are participating in this conference, so that you are adding to the momentum that has been created. For I can assure you that you have already precipitated a major breakthrough in the collective consciousness. You have achieved the goal that we envisioned for this conference. And thus, I wish you to feel the gratitude that all of us have for your willingness to be the spearhead, so to speak, to break through this old encrusted male-dominated consciousness, and carve a pathway for the resurrection of the Divine Feminine in all areas of spirituality. And even in the area of religion, so that religion can become spiritualized instead of the current condition, where most mainstream religions no longer have any spiritual element, any spiritual fire, any spiritual teaching. And thus, of course, they cannot satisfy the spiritual needs of today’s spiritual people, who will not settle for doctrines and dogmas, but want answers that make sense and take them into an intuitive recognition, and intuitive experience, of what I called the Spirit of Truth.
Thus my beloved, I seal you in my Flame of Infinite Joy, for truly I came to bring Joy to the world, as this is my keynote. Thus, I bid you catch my Joy and bring it to the people. For if you truly understand what I have told you in this discourse – that the Kingdom of God is at hand – then how could you not feel Joy?
