For those awakening divine humans

Take Jesus Off The Cross

He doesn’t want to be there! He also doesn’t want to be worshipped. Back there during the time of Jesus –  that was a very different time. and a different means of sending a message was necessary.

Jesus is not happy with what the churches have done with his original message, and he’s tired of being worshiped. It is actually a burden for him. He doesn’t want people to open up the doors of the houses of worship, and see a dead man impaled on a cross. He was a man, not a saint, or the son of God. He didn’t find his divinity until he went through the trials and tribulations in his own life. He had his doubts, fears, and he often felt lost in the sea of the beliefs and limitations of the unawakened consciousness of the people around him.

He slowly embraced his human self and eventually his love of life. He loved to eat, he loved sex and other sensual desires of the body.

This is also our story. We are going through our own transformation, bringing spirit home, to us, in our life. We are the teachers as Jesus was, and just like him, we also do not want the burden of being worshipped and depended upon. We want no followers. We want others to awaken to their God selves.

Just like him, we need to get away from the crowds ( mass consciousness ) and be in our sacred space. But unlike him, we do have more support and friends in the spiritual community. Maybe not your next door neighbor, or even your family or friends, but the global, on-line community.

So, let’s take ourselves off the cross.  Let’s not play martyr. That is so old energy. There’s no need for that anymore. There is nothing to sacrifice, nothing to forgive, no karma, no heaven or hell. Other than the one we create right here on Earth. There’s no need to prove worthiness. No external God.

You Can Take A Man Out Of The Church

Those of us who have gotten ourselves out of organized religion continued to carry a judgemental God within us. One that constantly asked of us to prove our worthiness.

We are asked to now release that judgemental inner God. To release the guilt and shame from our consciousness. We are asked to put ourselves on a pedestal, not some fickle, faraway, vindictive God. Stop worshiping the saints, the archangels, Buddha, or anyone else. Start worshiping yourself! There is no being more sacred than you. Jesus eventually loved himself, but he was also pulled on by mass consciousness. He was not ‘perfect’. He was perfectly human and divine. And, actually, there is no real separation.  The human is also the divine. God is in our blood, our bones, our hearts, our big toe.

We are awakening to that realization as the light pours into our bodies and our planet. We are sacred. We are teachers of the new Christ Consciousness. Nothing new for us. We’ve been doing it for a very long time. Many of us carry the fear of being persecuted for our beliefs. But, this is a vastly different time. The light quotient on the planet has never been at this level. And, we as Awakening Masters, are recognizing that we have no desire to convert anyone. We are more accepting of where everyone else’s is at. So if we are not pushing anything on to anyone, by the law of attraction, they won’t be pushing back. It’s a different time, and there are different energies present on the planet now. Yes the ones Awakening are still a fraction of the population. But that’s enough to bring a shift in the consciousness. We are not here to save the world, we are here to awaken ourselves. Maybe it is why sometimes we feel lost without our swords. There’s really no outside battle that is necessary, but we’re still in battle-mode.

But we’re getting tired of the inner battle between our minds and our hearts. We are slowly surrendering to our hearts, allowing our true selves to create in our lives. We are bold, brave warriors of light. Going where no man has gone before, going within. Exploring the deep and sacred within us. The dark and the light.

The dark is all of our fears:  old stuck beliefs, that are not even ours most of the time. Allowing Ourselves to be. To find that safe space within us. To nurture the child within. To give voice to the feelings, to the desires. To feel all the fears but not own them. To allow our sacred selves into our lives. To stand tall in a world that fears the light. Brave, brave warriors of love and wisdom.

The church gained control by telling the masses that their fate rested in a God outside themselves, judging them by their behavior. It all came down to control. Even Santa Clause was given control: If you were bad Santa would only give you black coal for Christmas.

My Experience

In my own life I am slowly embracing my human and god-self, making it all one package.  Slowly seeing that as I make choices that honor my human desires, it also honors my soul, and my spirit.  Slowly, I’m taking myself by the hand, and doing things that make me feel good, and I am choosing feelings that uplift me, and letting the other ones come and go.

It’s scary, because I am used to doing things that gave me a feeling of safety, even if doing them didn’t feel good.  I’m moving out of my comfort zone.  Sometimes it’s only the internal judge that’s telling me I am wrong. But that internal voice is a paper dragon.

We are not able to easily sit on the fence anymore.  It’s reckoning time, isn’t it?  It’s either move into joy and masterhood, or get hit hard.   That’s a good sign.  Fence sitting is not the most comfortable place to reside.

Our lives are like great paintings or great pieces of music. If we focus on all the technical 'imperfections' we will miss the true beauty of the work. We won't see, or rather, FEEL the essence and spirit of the masterpiece. I no longer identify myself as a writer, artist, or musician. Rather I express my divinity, and my humanity through the media of art, music and writing. I began this blog because I wanted to give voice to my experiences and insights, and I wrote for myself primarily. Eight years later, I am still writing for myself, and I am discovering that my experiences are not personal but universal - galactic even. And now I am more sure than ever that I am a new consciousness teacher, as each of you are. The way we teach is by going through the very human experiences, and as we ascend and shed our old selves, with love, and as we embody spirit in this lifetime, which we are all doing, we become the standards for others of the new divine human.

  1. Funny thing I noticed is that Jesus regularly pops up along my path as lately and I see it happen in a lot of my friends lives . And now even you Maria. I like 👍

  2. Maria, essentially I agree. I went through a process on this. I will try to spell it out in as few words as I can. First, I had to feel and recognize we ALL are children in the family of God. Then of course it was true of myself too. We are born innocent , and as children, are innocent. We do not need to be forgiven.

    But, then, we recognize we have become, and are recognized by others, as older brothers or sisters. WE function for part of our lives in that identification. Later, as we look to our parents, (or God) for guidance, or make mistakes in lording it over others, or whatever, we do need correction, and maybe we receive guidance or not. But, what if we do not seem to receive guidanace, when we had before that?

    Then, we begin to realize we are growing up, we CAN begin to see what we might need to do, or can do, or may need to do beyond ourselves as parents might, if they were where we happen to be. Again God might have asked us, but perhaps waits for us to realize it for our selves. That is THE step of knowing we have our own common sense, and at least occasional spiritual functioning, and knowing we can and must trust ourselves. In a human family, it being ready to marry, and have a family of our own. But, in relation to God, what is it? If is, at least to be an adult in the family of God.

    I had sensed, and felt guided by God as both Father and Mother, differently. But had I ever become my own mother, or was it mother to others? Does anyone become their own parents, or do they relate to them? I even finally related to my mother as the person she was, way beyond having been my mother,and she to me, beyond my being just her daughter. It was theoretical with my father. and we sort of changed knowing this, but with mother it was overt, we both knew it when it took place.

    Well, I am saying we do not become God, we relate to God, and there is a way that God relates to us by name, to who we are. Amen

  3. Oh—- and Jesus was an older brother, as was his message, and life. He is an icon, a symbol, but not just that. He is anyone’s example of an older brother, if we relate that way. I saw him up on a pedestal, turning to stone, and I breathed my life into him, but I was made stronger, not depleted.

    • Helena….thank you for sharing your perspectives on such interesting subjects. Trust ourselves we must, indeed. Yes, too about the mother energy…I find myself much more connected to my mother now that she has passed to the other side. (My post, MOTHERS AND DAUGHTERS)

      I feel Jesus as a brother and a friend. I feel I was assisting him back in his time on Earth. And that I and others are here now to continue the work he did. To embody the Christ seed into our physical vessels through embodied enlightenment, and to share that joy in whatever way feels right for us.

      Quite a process. Turns one’s life upside down. At least initially. Light has a way of doing that.

  4. Our story is only ours, and not the reality for another. We each come to this our own way. If it is real, we begin to live it in other ways too, and do not keep it as a lofty ideal we once reached. I say this for myself. On Jesus, I also saw a man I knew as holding religious ideals, which put an aspect of himself High on a cliff face, in a place trying to be like Jesus, and turning to a statue of what he must or should be. I confronted him, in the same way I must have been seeing this, and we communicated a long time over anyone trying to be like some example or someone being himself in the best ways actually possible. Being himself won out. For me too. I do not say this in argument, only in the way that words are forever inadequate, on such a reality and life changing processes. We communicate as best we can.

  5. Interesting post, as just a couple nights ago I was having a conversation with a friend. He was going on about something and all I said, was, Jesus did not nail himself to the cross. He got very quiet, as if he had never really thought of it that way. Needless to say, we moved on from there. I’m certain that he did not foresee his legacy being portrayed the way it has been for the last couple thousand years.

  6. Such a great thread of comments here. Thank you all, and thank you so much Maria, for your inviting messages.

  7. I heard an explanation to exspress the symbolizm of christ on the cross once that i thought was accurate so here goes.. we are all The christ potential, and up on that cross for being who we are.. It is time NOW to take ourselves down and resurrect.. best day to all
