The Power of Truth
Beloved Ascended Master Jesus lived a life of service. He spent his life teaching about God’s love for us and how to live a life of love. He was an example for all to follow. Jesus healed those who were ready to heal and performed miracles for all to witness. He was the essence of Pure Love.
Jesus became "Jesus the Christ" when he made His ascension. He is not "Christ" for all have a Christ Self, known as our Higher Self, and when we are eligible to make our ascension, we will become "______ the Christ" as well.
Jesus spoke the Truth, drawing a crowd of people wherever he went. He was crucified and died alone on a cross. Even those closest to Him abandoned him when he was captured for fear they would be next. Three days later He was resurrected from the dead.
Through His death and resurrection, Jesus taught that in the end, Love and Truth will always win.
So what exactly is Truth? Pure Truth is Pure Love. It is strong enough to stand on its own. It needs no army to defend itself. Pure Love is unconditional. Anything else is only our perception of the truth. If our truth is not Pure Love, then it is rooted in fear and is conditional. We are getting something out of it.
"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking. It is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always preserves." 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
When we feel the need to defend ourselves, tarnish the honor of others, strike back/hurt, or manipulate another in order to hear “our truth,” our spirit may be calling us to go within. To go within to explore and examine the still small places we may be holding our own anxieties, frustrations, insecurities, and fears.
As spiritual seekers, it is important for us to discern truth for ourselves. It is important to examine whether or not what we are being told is correct. Observe. What is the person sharing the information getting out of the situation? What would you be getting out of the situation if you took the information to heart?
Beloved Master Jesus taught, “Do not judge lest you be judged yourself.”Matthew 7:1
Ascended Master Kathumi taught (Teachings for the New Golden Age):
“Those who rest smugly and complacently in their own willful pursuits of pleasure, use just such an argument to discredit the earnest ones on the path. One day, in the distant future, such a challenge will echo through their own consciousness as well!"
“One of the chief requirements for spiritual mastery is discrimination."
“Know, always, that the prompting which guilds up the personality, that which gives aggrandizement to the human ego, is not the ‘still small voice’ of the Presence, but rather the etheric rumblings of your own past experiences, the emotional desires of your feeling word, or mental concepts and precepts from your past lives."
“Remember, you have sat in the past before many teachers, who have given forth both truth and fallacy, and into your mental and emotional bodies and your etheric consciousness are builded those concepts, some of them solidified and petrified and lying dormant, within them, for centuries. As the flame begins to surge through you, these concepts are re-vivified and come forth, and you must recognize them for what they are—NOT NECESSARILY THE VOICE OF TRUTH!"
“As you proceed into an understanding of the voice of silence, know that that which makes you humble, that which makes you selfless, that which makes you loving, that which makes your pure, that which makes you harmonious, is of God. The feelings that stir within your heart to make of this star a planet of light, to relieve the burden of your fellowman, to raise those in pain and distress into understanding and harmony—that is of Light. That which decreases the personality and increase the power of Christ is of God. Do you understand my words and feelings?"
“THAT WHICH DECREASES THE PERSONALITY AND INCREASES THE POWER OF CHRIST, THAT IS OF GOD! THAT WHICH SEEMS TO GIVE AGGRANDIZEMENT TO THE HUMAN EGO, IS NOT THE STILL SMALL VOICE OF THE PRESENCE.”
Walking the spiritual path is not for the faint of heart. It means looking at the self to see what needs changed within. It means not blaming or finding fault with another for our own weaknesses. It means holding our head high and being true to ourselves—even in the face of adversity. Walking the spiritual path may difficult work, but it is well worth the reward in the end!
Blessings to you on your journey!
