Loving yourself is the essential key
My Beloved, what will it take for a critical mass of people to manifest the necessary degree of Christhood, to hold the balance in these critical early phases of the Golden Age? Well, it will take the healing of psychology. And here I would like to point out – in the strongest way I possibly can – that there is indeed a large number of people on this planet who have been pursuing their spiritual growth for decades. They have followed various practices, various teachers and teachings—they have made progress. But I must tell you that a substantial portion of them have not passed the critical point on the path, the critical point whereby they have healed their psychology to the point, where they are able to fully accept that they are sons and daughters of God in embodiment.
Accepting that you are a son or daughter of God means that you are perfectly able to love yourself. For if you cannot love yourself, then you cannot fully accept that you are a son or daughter of God. You cannot fully accept that you are worthy to be a son or daughter of God. You cannot fully accept that you are worthy to walk the earth as a Christed Being, and you cannot accept that you are worthy to express your Christhood, to express Christ truth, and to challenge the errors of the consciousness of anti-christ.
And if you do not accept that you are fully worthy to be a representative of God on earth, then you will be overwhelmed by the onslaught of the forces of anti-christ, even the forces of many well-meaning people around you, who will not accept that you come out and declare that you know Christ truth, whereas they for some reason have come to believe that according to this or that guru or spiritual teaching one is not supposed to make that declaration.
Yet as has been said by Jesus, Christhood that is not expressed in a selfless pursuit of freeing other people is not Christhood. It is not Christhood that is manifest. And thus, it does God and the ascended masters no good for you to sit in some remote cave, meditating twenty-four hours a day—even if you have reached a certain inner state of purity of meditation. What is needed in this time is that those who have manifested their Christhood at inner levels also dare to express it by helping others.
Unless you are selflessly working to help others, you have not truly manifested Christhood. And what will it take for you to clear that hump, where you are not longer focused on your own growth? What will it take for you to throw away that sense of self and work selflessly for the greater cause of the ascended masters, for the greater cause of raising the consciousness of humankind? Well, it will take that one thing, my beloved—that you come to the point of fully, finally loving yourself because you fully, finally accept that you are lovable and that you are loved by God precisely because you were created by God as an individualization of God’s very own Being. And thus you sprang from love, and you came from love and you are fully lovable.
This is the essential key. And I must tell you that the prince of this world, the forces of this world – working with your own individual ego – have managed to come up with all kinds of schemes, whereby they have made people believe that they should not love themselves. Yet if you do not love yourself, you cannot follow Jesus’ commandment. And what was his commandment, when he was asked about the most important commandment of the law? Well, he said that the first commandment is to love God with all your heart, soul and mind. And the second one is to love your neighbor as yourself.
In order to love your God, you must love yourself as God, as an individualization of God—so that you love God as your own higher being. You love God as your greater Self. And in order to love others as yourself, you must know that they too are extensions of God. And therefore, they are extensions of your own greater self, and therefore you are connected to them through your own connection to God. And thus, you can love others as yourself, as your own greater Self – in a horizontal sense – in the material world. This is the love that will transform this world into the Golden Age of Saint Germain.
