For the Easter season, enjoy this excerpt from the 1993 Pearl of Wisdom by Jesus the Christ. (Vol. 36 No. 26.)
“Go here!” “Go there!” Thus you will hear the people proclaiming the coming of the Messiah. “What Messiah?” we say.
Why, the Messiah is the Christ of me and the Christ of you and the only begotten Son of the Father-Mother God. And yet, unless you will open your breast and show your sacred heart that your sacred heart might be the target of Antichrist, do you truly walk in my footsteps on Good Friday?
Do not be afraid of pain! Be not afraid to know the pain that allows you to enter into the bliss of nirvana and total oneness with your God. Is this not your desire, beloved? (“Yes!”)
Think about the deep desiring of your soul and your innermost being. If you desire to be in God and to embrace and be a part of that great Tree of Life so that the birds of the air (meaning the winged orbs of consciousness of the Mind of God) that rest in the branches of your consciousness actually become a part of you–if you really desire all of this and more, beloved ones, then you must surely conclude from the equation of being and anti-being that if you are to realize your highest imaginings of self in God, something must go: on this side of the equation something must go. And that something is anti-being.
But you will look again and you will see that the Lord God has not, does not and will never deprive you of anything that is necessary to your spiritual, eternal joy, as Above, so below. Only you can deprive yourselves of joy by free will, by karma made.
All of the things that you need, beloved, come to you by your recitation each day of the Lord’s Prayer, the “I AM Lord’s Prayer.” This prayer is a declaration of the Father’s love for you and of your love for the Father.
This Lord’s Prayer is the prayer whereby you achieve the bonding in your Guru-chela relationship with me and Maitreya and others of the ascended hosts. Therefore let us recite it now together:
I AM Lord’s Prayer
by Jesus the Christ
Our Father who art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy name, I AM.
I AM thy Kingdom come
I AM thy Will being done
I AM on earth even as I AM in heaven
I AM giving this day daily bread to all
I AM forgiving all Life this day even as
I AM also all Life forgiving me
I AM leading all men away from temptation
I AM delivering all men from every evil condition
I AM the Kingdom
I AM the Power and
I AM the Glory of God in eternal, immortal manifestation–
All this I AM.
This is your alchemical formula for the precipitation of your Tree of Life, your goal in life, your pyramid in life! Do you not see that the Father has guaranteed to you the kingdom, the power and the glory?
The kingdom is the consciousness of the totality of your being in God. The kingdom, beloved, is God’s consciousness where you are. The full power of God that comes upon you is the empowerment of your Mighty I AM Presence, which you experience when you seriously embrace the Path. The Path is difficult yet not too difficult for anyone–hard, yes, but not too hard. Yes, beloved, the glory of God is the ring upon ring upon ring of your Causal Body that descends upon you when you live the “I AM Lord’s Prayer.”
When you find the key to my heart in this prayer and many other prayers that were dictated by the ascended host through Mark Prophet, you will come to understand, beloved, that you can fulfill all of your goals–human, material, physical, spiritual, mental, psychological. Yes, you can fulfill all these goals and at the same time retain what you are in God and not lose one iota of your spirituality or your inner attainment. And the talents of your God-mastery will descend from your Causal Body in this life when you are ready to receive them and when you have balanced certain karmas that you made since you had that attainment of Light in ages past and applied it to many good works.
Yes, beloved ones, if you try to do all things by yourself, you will find it is simply impossible. For the word is written and it cannot be broken: With God all things are possible! With man nothing is possible.
