“My question for you is, would you be willing to surrender your illusions in order to remember the peace of God? The question is whether or not you will accept the atonement for yourself, the resurrection for yourself, and be determined to walk this Earth as one who has arisen.” (“The Way of Transformation,” WOM, Chapter 15, Page 184)
God makes the decision about our receiving Christ-consciousness, but we can delay and even say “no.” He needs our acquiescence, and here we read from Jesus several aspects of what God is looking for in us before He acts: our surrendering illusions, accepting the atonement and the resurrection, and being determined to walk in this world a one who has arisen.
These words in The Way of Mastery are the only place in my reading that I have ever seen detailed what God is looking for in deciding to bestow His peace. And His peace will certainly include, at some point, Awakening.
Let’s pay close attention, and let’s ask to be shown how to carry out these desires that come from God. Really to understand what we might do.
We have to be ready to walk the Earth as one arisen. If this frightens us, then we are not ready.
Let’s pray to be ready today.
