“Those roots of fear must be dissolved at a level that is deeper than the conscious thinking mind can reach. The mind was never designed to be your master, but to become aligned as a servant of the awakened heart, just like the flower blooms and sends forth its scent for all to see from the depth of the soil that is unseen, but has been well prepared. So that the only roots that gather nourishment from the soil are the roots of that which speaks of Life and beauty, not that which speaks of fear and unworthiness.” (“The Way of the Heart,” WOM, Lesson 12, Page 144)
We want the roots of our mind to be well-protected, nourishing new growth in our mind that will serve Love well. The garden is an apt metaphor for this process. Our subconscious mind has become polluted by weeds, and it behooves us to do something about this.
Jesus also speaks of Life and beauty, because these blessings will descend when we are truly loving and have cleansed our mind of pollutants. What are the pollutants? Hatred, attack, anger, discontent—all of these, plus many others that are hostile to the mind. These hostile attitudes need to go, and go they will when we turn to love. And Love with a capital “L,” Who is God Himself.
When we have been anxious and in fear for a long time, it may seem daunting to cleanse our mind of such pollutants. If we ever want to reach Christ-consciousness, though cleansing the mind of fear and judgment is necessary. And enlightenment or Christ-consciousness or Awakening—all meaning the same—is the goal of The Way of Mastery. Jesus wants a genuine Awakening for all people everywhere, something that has never been done before. But he is trying, and trying mightily, to get through to us, in channeled writings in addition to speaking to our hearts about what we really need to do.
Jesus has companions who work with him; he calls it the “lineage.” These are entities who have long walked with God, loving and doing good in the world. Many have now “graduated” from this plane, and return only to help us who are still caught in this world.

Ask today to be shown how to love.
