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.
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!
Enjoy Take Jesus off the Cross from Simply Divine
