“I traveled the path of the living Christ because that is what I am. It is exactly the same path you travel. Yours may not include portentous miracles. You may not be famous. You may not transform water into wine for humanity to begin to see a power not of this world. You may not heal the sick, externally speaking. None of that matters. None of that is essential.” Choose Only Love bk.3, 8:III
I think Jesus is here giving us a context for believing that we can one day be equals of him. Of course, those of us of faith don’t usually think in these terms. Yet Jesus says things like this repeatedly in various received (channeled) works from the recent past. We don’t have to perform the miracles that he did, though elsewhere he says that we will actually do more than he—certainly a startling assertion.
Jesus wants companions, not subservient individuals who idolize him. He can be an ideal for us, of course, but that is not the same thing as idolatry. He has pointed out the way, 2000 years ago, and he continues to be available to us in a mystical fashion that our finite minds and hearts cannot fathom. Many of us believe that he indeed did channel A Course in Miracles, A Course of Love, and The Way of Mastery. Now in Choose Only Love there are numerous portions coming from him as well.
Jesus doesn’t want us to assert things that we don’t quite believe. Even if we doubt the practice of channeling or receiving from a discarnate being, we still can read the words and be inspired. Much of what we read has a basis in traditional Christianity. This provides continuity from Jesus that is tremendously reassuring.
Ask today how we might emulate Jesus. Ask what our contribution might best be. Set up a dialogue in a journal, with questions and answers, and see if there doesn’t seem to be a way out there for all of us to experience directly. Ask to know what our mission is.
We will not be disappointed in what we “hear.”
