“You who receive these words now, remember that you are among the one hundred and forty-four thousand that God chose to be elevated by this means to the highest peaks of holiness. You have already completed your path to the knowledge of who you really are.” Choose Only Love bk.3, 9:II
This word from Choose Only Love comes from Mary of Nazareth. Here, she says something very startling, that those of us reading and receiving these words are among the 144,000 people identified in the Bible as being singled out for particular consideration.
I don’t think the number 144,000 is exact. I think it is a generic number for those of us who are following the guidance we are receiving from God, seeking to do His will, trying to live a good life under this guidance. There likely might be many more than 144,000 as we all begin to walk the pathway home.
Ask what God wants us to do. If we have been given any particular consideration, we need to find out what to say and do next. Those to whom much is given, much is required—as we know. Most importantly, we don’t want to slip into egoic attitudes, for these would nullify any good works that we might do.
Have we actually completed our path to the knowledge of “who we really are”? We must ask this question of ourselves, ask if Mary is right about us.
And walk in humbleness, in humility. We have much to do to save the world, and we ourselves must not lose our way.
