Jesus! (They Got it So Wrong)

So Jesus (Yeshua) and I were having a convo the other day, and he told me that he is really tired of taking the heat for everything that goes wrong, and the glory for everything that goes right.  And those two are interchanged all the time, depending on whose side you’re on.

His exact words were, “Look, what happened 2000 years ago, give or take a century, is history.  I don’t get why people can’t let it go.  Or worse, distort the story.

But you guys, you ascension mavens, are different!  You got my story right.”

And, he said, that’s why he loves hanging out with us.

We get that he is not our savior, but he is our friend. He ended up being a martyr only because he tried pushing against the powers to be and they pushed back. See how that works?

His message to us is we don’t have to do it that way. In fact we can’t do it that way.  We can’t embody our Christ consciousness by self-sacrifice, or playing the martyr. When he said to go forth and do better than him, he meant go forth, shine your light, but sans the cross. Sans the suffering.

And by the way, the original cross was a symbol of the intersection of the human and the divine. Same for the so-called fish symbol.

So he did what he had to do back then, but these are vastly different times. We are in a very different energy.

The world, mostly, is still steeped in a consciousness of sin, martyrdom, victimhood, and lack of true self-love.  But we are not.  We are bringing in a new, and a radical way of being.

Yeshua stood out back in his time, because his teaching was pretty radical. The whole self-love thing didn’t go over well even back then. That’s right.  It wasn’t so much about love thy neighbor as it was love thyself that he got in hot water about.  Because loving thyself meant really being enlightened.

Those who ruled certainly didn’t want the people below them to practice anything that threatened their own status and power.  They needed Enlightened masses like they needed a hole in the head.  So the powers-to-be kept peddling a lot of self-sacrifice propaganda, coupled with the virtues of hard work.   Then they gave the people some bread and circus, in the hopes of keeping the masses just complacent and tired enough so they wouldn’t overthrowing the government.

Sound familiar?  Nose to the grindstone, no time for deep self-reflection.  But some beer and football at the end of a long work week.

So to the rulers, Yeshua spelled trouble with a capital J.  He presented too much of a threat.  A loose cannon.  He wasn’t willing to settle for bread and circus.  He wasn’t interested in compromise.  He was the Pioneer of Freedom.

Sound familiar?

So I’m really glad he and I had a little talk, because when things get rough here on the Planet, when gravity sucks and I start going down that rabbit hole of negativity, I can count on him to help pull me out with his perspective of hope but also not fluff it up with airy-fairy nonsense.

What I love about him is he cuts through the bull s**t.  And I can always count on him to call me on mine.

He reminds me of who I really am, and the enthusiasm I had about coming here and at the same time he recognizes the challenges of this path.  Of the merciless quality of true freedom.

His message for all of us is to go for it.  Be radical.  Be free, and, to not forget to ‘like’ him on Facebook!

    The Bible being dead and all that (Not opposing you at all, Maria…LOL), but I thought a little context would help to “Add” to your enlightened message (Told you you were a prophet…LOL)

    Matt.22 Verses 34 to 40

    [34] But when the Pharisees had heard that he had put the Sadducees to silence, they were gathered together.
    [35] Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying,
    [36] Master, which is the great commandment in the law?
    [37] Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
    [38] This is the first and great commandment.
    [39] And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
    [40] On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

    Why did everyone, throughout time, NOT get this (to “Sin” in the before translated intention was to “Miss the Mark”)? It’s like…they all just glossed over it! Yet…supposedly this is right from the mouth of Jesus himself as is agreed by most Christians (do heretics exist anymore? I think I remember being one…several times).

    Love thy neighbor AS thyself! It’s the second most important principle “Like onto the first.” In other words, It’s just as important as the first. In fact, they are both the same thing in that they both begin and end with the other.

    I dunno, Maria…I think you nailed this one even though you cheated with a direct line to the source. We, out here of the former Christian variety, had to work it out with long division, adding, subtracting and multiplying a lot of “Life Calling” lessons…

    …which I bet Jesus had to go through as well only…he was a savant. I bet he was ace at “Go and Sin no more” because he got it all the first time…didn’t have to keep repeating a lot of stuff (Like me). LOL

    Thanks. Always a pleasure to be part of something better like what’s here.

    Love in Spirit

    1. I appreciate your ‘illuminating’ context, considering my bible knowledge is weak. Lol.
      I guess that folks, throughout history, will see and hear what they want to see and hear. Especially if it challenges their comfort zones.

      And Yeshua was big on challenging those comfort zones. But I agree that he had to experience being human and he went through what we all went through, to develop a compassion.

      And you said it well, he was a savant. He actually wasn’t a souled being. So he was in direct contact with his I Am, without the mediary of a soul.

      He was also lost, and doubted himself many many times. I didn’t point it out in the post but he was also very sensuous. He loved sex, and food. And he had from time to time quite the temper. He mixed it up in the marketplace.

      But the earthly pleasures were part of being an enlightened being, not something that had to be transcended.

      And look at how THAT truth has been maligned.

      So, you were a heretic. Me, too. To this day I really dislike the smell of firewood.😖

        Well, Maria…

        Seems you didn’t need a strong working knowledge of the Bible. You did better than many considering. I seem to remember a Governor of Texas once saying, “If English was good enough for our lord and savior then it’s good enough for THEM.” Talk about high marks for “Sin.” ROFL!!!!

        Considering that you said your bible knowledge is weak, I dare say you got it right; compare to many who know bible front and back and still seem rather clueless.

        I was raised on “Jesus came to Earth to experience everything we experience [only he was perfect].”

        I’m like…eh…he experienced everything we experienced? How is that possible and he was/is perfect (looking at my life…everyone around me). He experienced THIS???”

        Jesus did a lot of human things. I’d point out that Jesus also ran away from trouble a lot; skipped town when the heat got to bad. And he had amazing courage; kept going back for more.

        Jesus gets snaps for being fully human.

        Love thy neighbor as thy self is enough to be going on with.

        I loved your message, Maria! Inspired…most definitely inspired.

        1. Thank you. Good points about Jesus….and it’s just too much pressure to put on one dude. Being the messiah, and expected to come back to Earth and do the Armageddon thing.

          Yes, I agree he has a real simple message. And Thanks for your insights.

          And I’m glad you enjoyed the post. It’s good to lighten up on such a supposedly serious topic. 💜

    I love this! I have often said that if Jesus were here he would be having a big old heart attack with all that is done/said in his name. I have often felt he was my great friend and supporter. PS. I was never a Christian.

    And I have been on the fanatic self love trail for most of my life (with all that shame and self loathing, it is taking all my 61 and a half years to get to where I AM now.) and several years ago I started thinking about love our neighbor as ourself. Well if we don’t fucking love ourselves, then we don’t fucking love our neighbor! I tend to see all problems as lack of self love. ♥️☺️

    I have to ask my hubby questions about the Bible since I was not raised as anything and he is a preacher’s boy. ☺️☺️ Although he is not much of a believer…. He calls his path IDGAS (I don’t give a shit). He actually does care a lot but he is not a Christian or God person, if that makes sense. ☺️☺️♥️♥️

    Thanks for this post. Love love love it!!

    Love to all!

    Maria!!!!! ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️ Sistar!!!!!

    1. Oh, siSTAR goddess of joy…….to be 61 again…sigh. Heeehee.

      And,you nailed it. If we don’t fucking love ourselves, we can’t love anyone else. And the IDGAS path is a damned good one, and it’s what the awakening is all about. Keep on keeping on my friend. It’s good stuff. 💕💕💕💕

      1. elizabethsadhu

        Hahahaha….i love you so much dear Sistar! Funny to look back and think 40 or 50 is SO YOUNG! I’ll tell Jim you appreciate his IDGAS. ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🤸🤸🤸🤸🤸🤸🤸✌️✌️✌️✌️✌️✌️✌️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️

    I climb trees. I’m not gonna grow up. Now that is behind me, I feel so much better.

    Thanks for that! I love lil’ ditties, and this was no exception. A real gem.

    If I were to do any re-writing of the bible, I would change the shortest verse from “Jesus wept.” to “Jesus laughed.” By the way, if Mother Mary had a virgin birth, she would have had a girl. And Maggie says “Hi”, but she ain’t coming back here again and neither are we. Love, B;
