“What do I need to let go of? How deep can my self-honesty go?
“How wide can my compassion for life spread?
“What actions am I actually taking in this world?
“What am I defending? What am I afraid of?
“Am I willing to become so powerful a conduit for Christ that I take on responsibility for the atonement and tell Jeshua to move aside?” (“The Way of Transformation,” The Way of Mastery, Lesson 22, Page 268)
Jesus shows a sense of humor when he channels, live, in The Way of Mastery. Jesus’ sense of humor here is representative of occasions in the rest of the book. Here, of course, Jesus is using his other name, the name he is said to have used 2,000 years ago, Jeshua. He does need our hands and feet to save the world, but certainly he won’t be stepping aside. And neither could we succeed in his work in the world if he did.
The questions are quite helpful to self-reflection. Take them one at a time, and see what they show about us. They will take us toward giant leaps in our progress toward Awakening. I see that Jesus mentions compassion, which always comes before love when we are walking the pathway back to God.
When we let go of the things that we know are holding us back, there is no limit to how much we can help Jesus.
