“All that I will be sharing with you, not just in this lesson, but in this course, has as its final goal your complete Christed consciousness and the fulfillment of what your own soul desires.” (“The Way of the Heart,” WOM, Chapter 3, Page 27)
The purpose of the Way of Mastery (Christ Mind Trilogy)! Jesus is doing what he can to lead us to Awakening, and in the Way of Mastery he articulates this more clearly than in either A Course in Miracles or A Course of Love. His purposes there were slightly different: In ACIM, to dislodge the ego; in ACOL, to establish a new identity.
But in The Way of Mastery, he goes right to the heart of our trouble: the need to awaken, to move toward Christ-consciousness or enlightenment. He cannot awaken us directly, but he can direct our minds and hearts to remove the barriers to enlightenment that have prevented this blessing from descending upon us. God takes this action, as ACIM said. And we ourselves can do much to cooperate with Jesus in removing the barriers that we have placed in the way.
This is the fulfillment of what our soul has longed to have. The fulfillment that will turn meekness into a treasured way of being for all souls. This is a not a cast-down meekness, but a gentleness of spirit that will make all things, all things, right. It will be a meekness such as the man Jesus embodied when he was on earth.
This gentleness of spirit will give us the joy that we crave, the joy in Awakening that we have known is out there, waiting for us.
