We left off on the story of Jesus’ background. His mother and father, Mary and Joseph, were Essenes. John the Baptist and his parents, Elizabeth and Zacharias, were also Essenes. The only purpose of the Essene movement was to raise consciousness enough so the soul that would become Jesus could enter the material plane.
It is necessary again to raise human consciousness so that the next step in our evolutionary process can manifest and lead the way. There are times we think the next manifestation of the Christ consciousness will be a couple. It seems that true unity is something that is sorely lacking in our world today.
As for reincarnation, we sought references from the internet and found these statements, which sum up the Christian perspective. “One reason Christians don’t believe in reincarnation — the belief that we come back to life over and over again — is because they believe in heaven. After all, if heaven is real (as Christians believe), then there isn’t any need for an endless cycle of dying and coming back to Earth. In fact, why would we want to return time and time again to the pain and insecurities of this life? Ahead of us is the glory of heaven!”
The above statement was said by one of the more famous preachers of our time. As one can see, there is no need to be mindful of your actions in this life because you are automatically “saved.” This attitude has allowed for many an ungodly thing to manifest, some in the name of God.
The above statement is typical of those that are designed to have man look outside himself for answers. Answers that exist ONLY within the individual. There are many Teachings about the above statement. Here are a few: “Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, Lo there! For, behold, the Kingdom of God is within you.” (Luke 17:21) Jesus also said: “If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you.” This is from the King James Bible. Here is what is said in the Gospel According to Thomas: Jesus said: “If you bring forth that within yourselves, that which you have will save you. If you do not have that within yourselves, that which you do not have within you will kill you.”
We know how harsh this sounds. However, here is the meaning behind this Teaching: Bring forth your true power, your true faith, your ability to perceive, to hear, your ability to understand. If you bring that forth and work with that information, it will save you because you are going to be reading symbols, you are going to know your patterns, you are going to know the cycles, you are going to know where in a cycle you are, and you will be able to make the adjustments.
If you do not do that, if you do not work with the information that you have, then you are like everyone else, and you are at the mercy of the forces. You are at the mercy of your patterns, you will still fulfill your subconscious concepts and their expectations, your life will continue to unfold the way that it always has unfolded until you truly begin to get it and to bring forth that which you have.
