Dec. 22, 2017 – Private talk with Jeshua

December 22, 2017 Private Talk with Jeshua, excerpt, minutes 14-37

(Jeshua is already incorporated, speaking privately)

Jeshua: …I am always with you. I love you, cherish you, protect you, guide you. I will never leave you.

Now, I ask you to have courage, because what you came into the incarnation to do is hard. It is to help alleviate suffering from beings who are blind. They keep bashing themselves into brick walls and falling into holes, and will not accept the fact that they could end the blindness by opening their eyes.

Picture a whole world of people who are not literally blind but believe they are blind, and walk around harming themselves and harming others. Because they’re used to bashing into things that are (inaudible), they walk around with a knife in front of them. And so if they walk into somebody else, they stab the other. Constantly wounding each other, wounding themselves. And then there are those very cherished ones who have had the courage to come in as humans with their eyes open, not yet fully awake but with the eyes open, and to say, “I choose to come into this heavy density planet to help others learn to open their eyes.”

You are doing this through your dharma practice and intention to teach, to share the dharma, whether it’s in a group or just one-on-one… there are so many ways in which you are holding to that intention. But it takes enormous courage.

I know Aaron asked me to come in for two reasons. One is because you said you don’t feel me with you, and I want you to feel me with you. The other, I was not only born with my eyes open but fully awake. Imagine my despair when I saw so many people staggering around with their eyes closed and wounding each other. And our Father had asked me to come and help them learn that they need not wound each other.

I felt enormous despair at a certain phase of my life. Before I began my teaching, I wandered for some time in the desert, as the story goes, asking, “Can I do this? Won’t I do more harm than good? Might I not destroy with my power? I don’t know how to do this. Father, show me. I am lost. I feel danger. I am afraid.” And I knew my power. And I knew my human capability to open to anger, not hatred; never hatred, but anger. And I knew my power to destroy through that anger. And I wanted to run away. I felt, “I cannot do this.” And then I knew I had to try, because it is what the Father asked me to do. When I say ‘Father’— Father, Mother, Beloved, what the Divine asked of me, and what I had agreed to do, why I had come.

Not as much is asked of you, daughter, but to keep your heart open and to know that you have chosen wisely. That you are surrounded by loving guides— myself, the Mother, Aaron, but also your own very beautiful personal guides, very high-level guidance. What is asked of you is to keep your heart open and be mindful. Just that. And when the heart closes, and it will, to pause and know the heart is closing. “Oh, right here with the closed heart, where is the open heart?”

Aaron’s new book speaks beautifully of this, how to come back to the open heart, to the light that you are. I cannot ask you not to doubt, only to know that doubt is a trick of the mind. To pause and remember, and use Aaron’s delightful, “Is that so?” And hold the stone (crystal) and ask Jeshua, “Help me. Guide me, here.” And to turn to the Divine, the Infinite Creator, out of which we all have emerged, and remember that you are love. You are created in love and in light. And you can never be less than that. You can only diminish that by pulling the armor around the self. But you can never be less than the light and love that you are.

(continuing later)

I am Jeshua ben Joseph, a son of our Father. And I greet you, sister, (name), a daughter of our Father, and ask you to remember that you are my sister. I’ve called you daughter at times, but you are both. You are my sister, as all beings are my brothers and sisters. And that you have the power to love, and the power to destroy. The extraordinary power to love has been entrusted to you because it is known that you have the understanding not to destroy. Every human, as they awaken, finds that power in themselves, to love and create or to destroy. You are a highly positively polarized being. You will not destroy. You are not poisonous. I know it’s a lot of power to carry. Think of it as a sacred trust by ones who are a bit older and wiser than you. And know that you are ready to carry this power of love, and to carry the pain that comes with it.

Before I go, let me share one more story here. Aaron tells stories of me in his Christmas stories. When I travelled and saw people beating each other, harming each other, being cruel to each other, saw something as simple as a starving child, a young child in the marketplace eyeing the food on the table, literally starving and reaching for a small, a fruit that had worms in it, or a piece of bread that was a bit burned, looking at the shopkeeper, not daring to ask, “May I have it?”, just reaching. And the shopkeeper might hit him, sometimes with a stick. “Get away!” It tore my heart apart, because that shopkeeper came to learn generosity and love, and he seemed to be incapable of doing it, he had so much fear and greed. I would sometimes sit and cry. I would cry out to the Father and ask, “What can I do?” And I was told, “Love him. Love the shopkeeper.”

On one such occasion, I returned and that same child was still wandering around the marketplace. You could see his ribs sticking out, he was so skinny. Perhaps 6 years old. I came to him and took him by the hand and went up to the shopkeeper, smiled at the shopkeeper, and said to him, “This small child is very hungry, and I have some coins. How much would it be for a piece of bread, for an apple?” He gave me a figure, an exorbitant figure for that amount of food, because he was eyeing the boy angrily, who had tried to steal from him. He said to me, “I will not sell food to you for him. He is a thief.” I said, “Perhaps he is a thief because he is hungry. Nevertheless, I will pay you for the food. How much do you want for it?” He gave me a figure three times what this should have cost.

I said, “We both know that that is an exorbitant amount of money for this food. But here. But I have one condition: that you come around here, kneel down on the ground and hand it to him.” “No!” “Well, I’ll find another shopkeeper then. But the offer is still open: three times what the food is worth, what you could sell it for to anyone else. All that is asked of you is to come around and kneel down and hand it to him.” I had coached the boy before and told him what I was going to do, and asked him, “When he gives it to you, can you look in his eyes and say, ‘Thank you’?” He was terrified, but he said he would do it.

So, our shopkeeper friend, his greed got the better of him. He came around— he had picked an apple with some wormholes and a slightly burnt piece of bread. I did not correct him and ask for the best. He came around. He knelt down. He was eye-level with the boy. A kind of grudging, “Here,” and he looked into the boy’s eyes. And the boy said, “Thank you. I have been so hungry. But I will take it home and share half with my younger sister.”

Something broke open in this man’s heart. I had hoped that it would, but I could not make it happen. He looked in the boy’s eyes and tears formed. He reached out and pulled out another piece of bread and apple, these perfect and beautiful! He said, “Here’s one for your sister, also.” He asked the boy, “Where do you get your food? Where are your parents?” “My father has died and my mother right now is very sick, so there is no food in our home. I find what I can for myself and my little sister.”

The shopkeeper looked at me. He did not know me, but he somehow seemed to trust me. He said, “Will you stay here with my stand while I go off with this boy? I want to see his home.” I agreed. So, I was not there at the home and I don’t know exactly what happened, but the boy took him home. He saw it was just as the boy described. The mother, she had not broken her leg but perhaps sprained it badly. She could not walk. She was thin. She was sick. The home was a very poor home, even had the mother been well. But it was not well-tended because the mother could not walk and the father was dead. He said to her, “Sister, what happened to your husband?” “He was killed.” Not sure exactly the circumstances, but an accident of some sort; not murdered, but an accident, about 3 months previous to this time. “And how have you survived?” “When I can walk, I can do some weaving.” She showed him the very beautiful weaving that she did. “But it is too much pain, I cannot go to the marketplace, and my son is too young to do it.”

He said, “Daughter, you stay home and weave, and each week I will stop here and pick up your weaving to sell in the marketplace. I will not charge you anything for it. I will sell it from my bread and fruit stand. I bake the bread, and I have an orchard with abundance. Your son may come to me any time for this bread and fruit, but bread and fruit is not enough to survive on.” He told the son to come with him and back to his home, and gave him a basket of eggs. And he said, “Come back when you need more, and I will try to find other food for you.”

So, this act of trust in this man’s capacity to open his heart, and my willingness to meet his greed so that he would connect with the boy— I didn’t manipulate this, I just trusted that if he made direct contact with the boy and could see him not just as a thief but as a human child, I trusted the capacity of his heart to open – these acts of love opened the heart’s door.

But when I first saw him hit the boy with the stick, when the boy reached for food, I felt so much rage at this man! I wanted to destroy him! I wanted to take his table and throw everything into the dirt! I wanted to hit him. I had to take time to tame my rage, and to ask, “How do I help this man, and how do I release my own rage?” I was human. Anger still arose. Because I was awakened, I would never enact that anger. But I was human, and anger arose. —When I say I would never enact that anger, I would never enact it in a way to literally harm another sentient being.

The story, I hope, demonstrates the power that you have to work with your own anger, and to touch the world with kindness, one human at a time. Perhaps sometimes it will be 3 or 4, or 300 or 400. But basically, it’s heart to heart. That is how we transform the world into love and light. Invite that light and love to come forth. You have that power. Never forget it. And it is why you came into the incarnation. And if sometimes you fail, that’s okay. No one will condemn you. If the task seems too big and you need to back away, that’s okay, and no one will condemn you. You are not bad because of that.

You are loved. And help will be with you with each step. If you say it’s too much, we will simply hold and hug you until you’re ready to try again. Will you trust me with that thought?

I release the body to Aaron. My blessing to you, my daughter, sister, beloved. My blessings.

April 16, 2017 Easter Sunday, Remembering Wholeness with Jeshua

April 16, 2017 Easter Sunday, Remembering Wholeness with Jeshua

Jeshua: My blessings and love to you all. I am Jeshua. I know that’s Aaron’s greeting; I have learned it from him. Thank you for inviting me to be here with you today. (Walking among the group) I want to look into your beautiful faces, feel your presence, and invite you to feel my love and presence…
There is no need to believe anything special about me. I am no different than you. I was born as human, as you were all born as human. Yes, I was more awakened, perhaps, than you were at your birth in this lifetime. I did not forget why I had come. But don’t put me on a pedestal. You are just as divine and radiant, and as much Sacred Spirit, as I am.

Give me a minute… this one has pain in the body. Just trying to bring in supportive energy. Your loving energy directed to her will be helpful, also… (pause)

Breathe in, allow the energy in. Think of it as a cylinder of light, pouring into your head and into the chakras, opening all the chakras in the energy system… (his hand is over her head) (pause)

They called me different names— Messiah, Holy One, even Cursed One. I was none of these. I was simply Jeshua ben Joseph, the son of Joseph and Mary, come to Earth at the request of our mutual Father/Mother/Creator, to bring love, to open people’s hearts; to teach people to know their innate light, their radiance; to know who they were. That’s all. People say, “Well, he came to fulfill a prophecy.” There are many prophecies. I came because our beloved Creator/Father/Mother said, “Please, will you go down and help?” I could have said no, just as each of you can say no. There is free will. But there was no reason for me to say no. It was my joy to say yes.

But I understood from the start that it was going to be hard work, that I was coming into a very heavy density realm. It is as if you suddenly found yourself in a diving suit—the old-fashioned kind of diving with tanks, a big bubble around the head and a heavy suit. You’re half a mile under the sea. Very hard to move around because the density is so heavy. I understood it would be cumbersome. (walking around imitating the heaviness) Do you feel like that sometimes, when you’re walking around?

You are here, as I was then, to help fulfill a prophecy of the Earth’s evolution as a higher density planet on which beings can live without the veil of forgetting; knowing who you are and why you have come, knowing non-separation, and with full free will too. Able to live with the love that is your birthright.

 It’s so hard for some of you to believe that. (pausing for a drink of water) Water. This Earth is a place of such blessings, amongst them, simple water. Air, light, fire. You were born into these elements, and they are a part of you. When you open to the elemental basis of yourself, it helps you to come back and know who you are. You are not a brain, you are Love (hand over his heart). We put it together, heart/mind, because the wonder of the human is that you have intelligence and the opportunity of free will choice. That means you can choose love or fear in any given moment. And in that choice, may awaken to the truth of who you are.

In that lifetime I was named Jeshua. It was not my first human lifetime. It was the first one you know about, but not the first one. In your Buddhist teachings you have the stories of the Buddha’s early lifetimes, the Jataka Tales. Well of course I had early lifetimes also, both on the earth plane and on other planes. So when you ask, who is Jeshua and what happened on these days of Good Friday and Easter Sunday, the human who came as Jeshua ben Joseph simply went through a transformation, releasing some of the heaviness of human density, and allowing myself more fully to enact the high energy and light that I truly am.

All of you, you’ve been here before. Who are you? Are you this human being, sitting in this chair? Who were you before you were born? Who will you be after you die? It’s constantly changing. What is the essence that holds it together?

I have a little experiment here. Let’s have 8 of you, any 8, who would like to come up. The ends of some of these candles are broken, so have care with them… I have 4 more candles… Anyone else like to participate? I think these 12 are all the candles in the box… Now I’m going to take the first candle and light it. Spread out enough that those in the back can see. I’m going to light this candle and pass it to you…

This is what we might call the Jeshua light; now it will become the N light. N is going to light D’s candle with it and then extinguish hers. I want you to watch the flame. D will light B’s and then extinguish hers. Watch the flame carefully. Now it’s burning from a red candle, and now it’s burning from a white candle, a pink candle, green candle, just as some of your inner flames sometimes burned in a black or white or brown or yellow or red body, male or female, short or tall. Watch the flame.

Each lifetime, a new candle. One flame. Now you all may sit down, and will you please hold up the candle (the last one lit); hold it up. Is there anything different in that flame than the flame with which we started? Is it the same flame or a different flame? Same flame or different flame? (Group: same flame) Same flame; different bodies. Do you understand the point I’m making?

The holy light that is the essence of you, the radiance and love that is the essence of you, this remains. Part of what I came to teach as Jeshua is that this light that you are cannot die. The body passes, just as the candles change. The light essence that you are can never die. In those days it was believed that when you died, that was it, you were gone. Some of the teachers of those days did not like what I taught because they did not believe that there was any essence that continued, any divine essence that could not perish.
Q: Soul?
Jeshua: The word “soul” gives the idea of something perhaps a bit more permanent than I have in mind, but what I am talking about here is this core of light that comes from the Father/Mother/Creator and expresses through you, in whatever form you are in that lifetime, and will never die. You are expression of that life, now expressing on this heavier-density planet. So the body may cease but the Light continues , and expresses from a new candle.

Actually, for Jeshua, the body did not completely die, because of the training I had to keep a spark of life going. To all perceptions, I was “dead”, but because my focus and energy were not on the outer forms but on the essence, from that essence I was able to rekindle the candle. So as I lay there in that cave “dead”, the consciousness continued. Pure awareness, noting this body, this inert body in which it rested, drew light and rekindled itself.

I had help. We had a triangulation of three caves and people toning in these caves, creating a triangle of energy that helped support my process drawn from my training. Enactment of this process was all our training. I could not have done it alone any more than we could sit here in this circle and have strong energy just with one person. You can feel my energy but…(static, recording stopped; he thinks his high energy as he raised his vibration a lot to demonstrate “feel my energy” did something to the recorder)

Jeshua: The recording stopped: I think we lost about 5 minutes. I will continue.

Barbara: Here, while reviewing, I have asked Jeshua to fill in a little of what we lost. He says this is very shortened and not exact.

You can feel my energy but also all the energy of the circle, that magnifies mine.

While within the crucifixion, there was pain, but also, I knew how to withdraw consciousness from the body. I did that in part, though not completely because I chose to have the human experience.

When I was carried into that cave, to the human eye I was dead, but I retained that spark of life and could rekindle it. The process has been lost, but you are on the path to relearning it. As humans, once you see a possibility, you know and trust it is possible, and then your belief system of “impossible” no longer blocks the manifestation. So I also came to demonstrate this continuation of Light.

There was no fear. I knew my essence could not die.

Remember being a child jumping, perhaps from a dock, into the water and the waiting parent’s arms. It was frightening to leap, but you also trusted the parent, that he or she would catch you. In time that leap ceased to frighten. In life, you are often invited to leap, and to trust the Love that will catch you.

Jeshua continuing from the audio transcript:

When you pass from the body, it’s just like that leap, leaping into the Father/Mother’s arms, the loving parent waiting to catch you safely; to hold you until you are ready to climb back on the dock and begin a new incarnation. And then you leap off again. Both ways it is a leap, into what you call birth and into death.,.

So yes, there was pain involved, but I also knew it was completely safe to die because I was not identified with the body; the light that I am could not be extinguished. The light is eternal.
The more you can touch on that light in the incarnation, to know it and rest there stably, the more fully you can bring forth your energy to invite a higher vibration of love on this heavier density plane, and to change this plane. The more you hold back, the more you become part of the fearful masses that weigh everything down. But that’s okay too. If you must do that, then do that for as long as you need to until you are ready to step past it. There is no right or wrong here, only each human holding the intention to help themselves and the whole Earth remember the— I am asking Aaron; I started to say “intrinsic”— is that the correct word, Aaron? The essence of light that you are. My English vocabulary is not completely up to date; sometimes I refer to Aaron for help on the vocabulary.

(walking among the group) So I love you all, and thank you for being here with me today. Know what you are and let go of the rest… Release limiting beliefs that do not serve you. Celebrate rebirth of all that is good and beautiful! Know that heart of love that is your essence.

Remember that we are brothers. I will not say don’t put me on a pedestal, but put yourself right up there with me. Or take us both off and let us just walk on the earth together. Either way is fine.

(to individual) Your beloved is so strongly with you, with us in this circle. (inaudible personal comments, long pause as he walks around, greeting each person) Let go of everything that is not light, and trust your radiance to shine forth… (continuing) Breathe… Fire needs a bit of air. (continuing) You also, breathe; like father, like son. Breathe… (continuing)

Our schedule had me talking until 4pm, and then the Mother. Within that talk there was supposed to be time for questions. I will leave it to you whether you want to spend some time with questions and have a much shortened darshan with the Mother, just an exchange of energy with little talking, or whether you wish me to end here and have the Mother come in here for the normal darshan. Is there a preference? (a show of hands; about equal) Since you are here for the Remembering Wholeness, I think these are enough words from me, and we’ll get together another time when we can talk longer.

I’m going to release the body to the Mother. Actually I’m going to release the body to Barbara so she can stretch a bit and change the chairs here and then start the darshan.

May you all experience the deep blessings of love that are your birthright in this human form. You were never promised that there would be no pain. You were promised that you have the capacity to transmute that pain into love. This is your human work, as it was my human work.
My love, my blessings. I release the body…

There is No Original Sin – Nov. 13, 2016 – Jeshua channeled by Barbara Brodsky

For the complete archives: archives.deepspring.org

November 13, 2016 Sunday, Jeshua

There Is No Original Sin (At the NC retreat, Jeshua asked to incorporate in response to a question from someone in a small group meeting struggling with feelings of unworthiness and despair over original sin and a belief that she should suffer because of that sin)

Jeshua: I am the one you have called Jeshua. I came in love for all beings. I did not suggest ever that people should suffer, or that people must suffer to reach a higher plane. My dear brother and friend Siddartha Gautama also did not say that people should suffer, only that suffering is inevitable until you awaken and understand that nature of suffering. But why should you continue to suffer? I came to teach you love. Some of those who brought my teachings into a religion created the idea of sin. I did not come to save people from their sins. I came to remind all of you, that you already are awakened, that you also are the Christ. The word “Christ” means “awakened one,” and I came to remind you that you are that Awakened One; not to be a model put up on a pedestal, but to take your hands and walk with you and support you knowing your own truth of love. How could it be otherwise? You are love.

The rest of it is, as Aaron would say, mental objects, just ideas in your head, ideas that have been so deeply ingrained, that you have somehow a stain on you and you must do something special to eradicate that stain. You have all been in mud puddles, yes. You’re splashed all over with it. Get in the shower. It rinses right off. But if you think it has seeped into the skin so that you must use a scouring pad to scour it off then you will bleed, there will be pain, and that is not what I came to share. The only answer is love.

You find it hard to believe that. I cannot make you believe, nor would I try, only I offer you my love and the power of my love. Come sit here before me for a minute, please. Your name is…? (She replies.) Look into my eyes… Do not think of me as a Lord high up. Think of me as a brother, a friend. One who promises you that love and this whole kingdom of heaven in whatever fashion that might appear, that this is here, now, in your heart. You are the awakened Christ.

(pause)

Let all the rest go, all those beliefs of eons of Catholic lifetimes. I was not a Catholic. I am simply Jeshua, the one who teaches love and the path of love.

(pause)

Thank you, Q. When doubts come up, please remember this time together. You are love, and that’s all you need to remember. Shower off the mud. And if you fall in another mud puddle, shower it off again. You are love.

I can release the body to Barbara or I can stay in the body if there are others of you who wish to talk here. Any others of you who wish to have this connection? Usually we have the Mother do this. Sometimes my energy is too strong for people, and often we have the Mother come in for darshan. We do this with the Mother, who has a softer energy. But if my energy is comfortable for you I’m happy to stay in the body. I don’t want to knock people out.

Q: (inaudible, asking for continued support for softening (the heart))

Jeshua: You still believe in that notion of sin, that something must be done to wipe it away. When I use the word sin, it’s perhaps too strong a word. But when you have negative thought, angry thought, jealous, hateful, greedy thoughts, your whole being moves into the sense that something is wrong. Aaron would remind you this has simply arisen from conditions and the conditions have not yet been purified. Wash the mud off. Who are you underneath these thoughts of good and bad, right and wrong? Who are you?

You were recently with the Mother, and I noticed you experienced a lot of softening and could feel her love. I hope you can also feel my love. My love and her love do not make you good, or save you from being bad. You never were bad. But let my love be a reminder of the essence of your heart. You ask for support for softening. Why is the armor there? In what ways do you believe the armor protects you? Why does this beautiful heart need armor?

I don’t think for you that it’s because of what you’re afraid will come in to you. I think the armor is to keep in what you feel is negative, because of the deep intention not to harm others. You keep that armoring in place, as I perceive it, as a way of protecting others from your own sense of occasional negativity. You are powerful, but the power of your intention to do no harm is stronger than the power of your anger, the power of your sorrow, your neediness, your confusion. The power of your love is so strong you don’t need the armor.

You don’t believe me, and I will not try to convince you, only to ask you to consider the possibility. The support is always there. But as soon as fear comes up and the heart closes, you can’t feel the support. Do you have any thoughts about what I’ve said?

Q: Just that much of this is hidden.

Jeshua: Certainly it’s hidden, otherwise it would have healed long ago. It’s the deepest places.

Imagine layers and layers of armor. As you grow and open, the outer layers fall off, but somewhere, for so many of you, there is still that notion of original sin, that somehow you are blemished in some way. There is such a deep aspiration to be loving in the world, to do no harm in the world, truly to awaken in support of higher consciousness in yourself and in the world. And still the idea, that original tiny seed of negativity, it must still be there because I still feel anger. I still feel confusion, doubt, greed. So, there must be something, no matter how small the seed, it must be hidden in there. And because of the strength of your intention to do no harm, the armoring goes up.

What I would ask of you, is to begin to trust your innate goodness, your radiance, your love. I promise you all there is no original sin. You were born of light and of love. You were born as human and therefore experience all the human emotions. There is doubt, there is greed, there is anger, even hatred. There is the desire of one to be stronger than the other, to control the other, and so forth. This is part of the human experience. But as Aaron said so clearly to you last night, you are here and doing this practice to remember that you do not have to enact these kinds of negativity, but can simply note them as they arise. They do not have any power over you unless you give them power. The ability to not give them power is a core human learning. There is no original sin. There is no innate blemish to your being. You are light. You are love. And this is the whole essence of what I came to the earth to teach.

Walk in my footsteps, then. Remember, you are love. Let nothing convince you otherwise. Attend to any negative impulses that will arise because you are human. But trust that you are love. And the armoring, it is safe to let the armoring dissolve. It is really easier for those of you who armor much less against hurt from others than because of the concern that some negativity will go out to others. You have the belief that you must hold in. What if anger comes up and I hurt somebody? Armoring. You will not hurt anybody. When experiencing this pain, reach for me. “Jeshua, I’m feeling such rage. Help me. I don’t want to hurt anyone.” Reach for me rather than armoring, and that will help you. It takes courage, and you have that courage. I love you.

(John arrives)

John, I am Jeshua. We’re having a different kind of circle here today. Welcome.  We began by talking about the feelings of sin and wrongness, original sin, and so forth, and I requested to come in and to say I never taught that. Is there anyone else who wishes to speak with me, and if not we’ll let Barbara come back.

What I have just been saying goes for all of you. Watching the armoring that comes when a negative thought arises. Not so much armoring the self to protect the self, for most of you, but armoring because of the high intention to do no harm. Thus, you close the heart so that the anger doesn’t go out. I would say everyone in this circle does this to some extent.

Then I ask you to trust. Aaron talks of non-duality, the anger and that which is not angry. You have the capacity to hold space for the anger and release the anger in ways that are not harmful, actually to use the anger as energy and transmute the anger. The anger is just energy. It’s not something evil. There is no ultimate evil. The anger is just energy. You hold the intention not to enact the anger in the world, but to use the energy of the anger, run through the loving heart, as a ground for compassion; and to bring healing in this way.

This is what I came to teach. Some of you know the practice of tonglen. I learned this practice during my years in Tibet. It’s a powerful practice in which you bring in the pain, the anger, the fear. Let it come down into the heart, and trust the power of the heart to transmute this. Right there with the anger, where is compassion? Gain confidence through practice, that you can touch such compassion. And then breath that compassion out into the world. This is not just an idea. You truly are releasing that energy into the world. It’s real. So instead of fearing your negativity, know it as energy, and hold the strong intention to use that energy for the highest good by letting the heart transmute and release it. Purify it in the heart.

(long silence)

Don’t worry about whether I’m real or not. Simply ask yourself if my words and my energy are helpful to you. And if they are, then use them. And if they’re not, release them.

Please remember that I had many lifetimes to come to a readiness to incarnate as the being you knew as Jeshua, to prepare myself not to hate even as I was nailed to a cross. This is not expected of you. If anger and hate arise, forgive yourself for it. Know that this is part of the human experience. It is in this way that you rise above it, not by hating yourself for hating.

This is the core of it. How do we not hate when people hurt us? So many of you are in pain about the recent election, not so much because you loved that female candidate and couldn’t wait to see her elected, but because there was so much pain around the male candidate. For most of you the pain came from his seeming brutality, his deep way of hurting others, and it went against everything that you wished for, for yourselves and for your country. For many of you it took you back, in this or past lifetimes to times when you were hurt or even killed as part of some minority, when you were hated or despised.

I have said in the scriptures, and I don’t state the exact way it is said because I didn’t say it in English, but, “Blessed are those who can experience hate heaped upon them and not hate in return.” Blessed, why? Why does that make you blessed? Because as Aaron described last night, not told but described— he says he is not dictating, he is simply expressing his view— you are all here to learn and teach loving kindness and compassion, and the power of love. It is love that saves us, only love.

This man and his followers, they come to test you, as many in my time were tested in my name, despised because they said they followed me. But they found the courage to trust the path of love and to follow it. It was not me they followed, it was the awakened consciousness in their own hearts, the love in their own hearts. And they found the courage to follow that love. Otherwise this religion you call Christianity would have died away. It wasn’t just based on me, it was based on the millions who said, “I embrace this doctrine of love and I will follow it no matter what hardships, no matter how much hate from those who seek power, seek their own personal power at the expense of others.”

Now you are come into a time where, in a sense, you are all asked – not to be martyrs, nobody is going to kill you, that is not the intention,– but to speak your truth, speaking from the Christ heart, the awakened heart, the Buddha heart of yourself. Say no to hatred, to bigotry, to greed, to those who would seek power at the expense of others. You will find ways to do this as you work, each within yourselves, to purify and release the fear and anger, so that the radiant heart can shine out ever more brightly. Do not be afraid. There is so much support for you here. And all of you literally, consciously or unconsciously, came into the incarnation to do this work. As the Buddha said, if it were not possible you would not be asked to do it.

With that I will leave you. My love to all of you. Let us form a full circle here. Try something with me. As you join hands, turn your left hand, palm up and your right hand, palm down. Send the energy around the circle. It is not my energy; it is our energy of love. Feel it circling. Breathing in and receiving from the left hand, feeling it within you, and then breathing out and releasing it through the right hand. Breathing in and receiving it again, and releasing. (pause) If you feel any resistance, just note the resistance. It is not wrong to feel resistance, it is human. (pause)

I’m going to join your two hands here… I love you all, and I am with you always. Do not be afraid. You did not come into this world to see it destroyed but to see it rise. To see the rising of consciousness on this earth plane; to help hold the light everywhere. Together we do this. I said do not be afraid, but if fear arises, don’t get caught in its stories. If there’s fear, it’s just fear. Please do find the trust to know it is safe to experience fear. All will be well. Because of your love, all will be well.

My blessings to all of you. I love you.
