Jesus Radiates the love of his Sacred Heart
 Jesus Radiates Love of His Sacred Heart

“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today and forever”! (Hebrews 13:8)  Worshippers of the Christ have taken this declaration of the Holy Scriptures and have used it as a powerful affirmation to know and feel that Jesus as the Living Christ is here with us today–loving us, raising us upward, and moving us Christward to help us claim the empowerment as God’s freewill gift to all; to become that same living Christ that is in Jesus now and always.

"Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away: behold, all things are become new."
(II Corinthians 5:17)

And yet the Jesus of today remarks that few among us choose to be who we truly are as Christed beings as many would rather be something else.

And so he gives us this commission:

Yes, it is up to each of you as Christed beings to carry forward my message—the message of my mission two thousand years ago and my message of today—that each one is the living Christ, created in God's image and likeness and must choose to be that light, that Reality now and ever through freewill…
And so you must teach them the art and science of knowingness, acceptance and beingness as a trilogy of perfection; for when they can feel, know and sense God's Presence within, everything changes, a new universe opens, divine possibilities may be engaged in and further insights ensue. 
                                                                  ----Beloved Jesus, delivered through his amanuensis, David Christopher Lewis, October 26, 20161


Accepting this great commission into our lives daily engages us in a greater knowingness of what we may accomplish in our lives when giving devotional prayers, songs, mantras and dynamic decrees in sacred ritual:

… “[T]he Christ is there through those words, for you have locked into the essence of Christ-glory through the infinite Word, the Logos, who empowers those words in the I AM name of God”2.

The Presence, Light and Personhood of Christ

Immerse yourself in the wonderful synthesis and encapsulation of brand new Aquarian teachings on the meaning of “the Christ.” View a video presentation of David Christopher Lewis, inspired by Mary the Mother of Jesus3.

 

Learn the Meaning of "The Christ" Video:
 

 

Summary highlights and thoughts:

In this video, we learn that the “Christ” manifests at differing levels or aspects of being. The Christ ‘Presence’ at its core has all the virtues of God. It exists through all time and space and beyond all time and space. At its universal origin in the heart of God, it is available to all. As the Anointed One, the Only Begotten Son (sun), the Divine Logoic Word, it may and does assist each one of us in becoming fully the Christ [our]selves. 

You begin and continue to identify with your Holy Christ-Buddha Self as we refer to it in The Hearts Center.

The Christ Presence facilitates the process of transfiguration wherein we come to know our true Self, our true nature. As we allow it through our own assent, it merges as Godly essence with our own Christ essence.

The Christ Light ever illumines and shows the way. As light energy it imbues our auric field with brightness and aliveness. Its radiance opens the portals betwixt the human and the divine. Through the effulgence of the Christ light we can access higher realms of dimensional awareness and being.

And now comes the Personhood of the Christ. Whereas the Presence and Light of Christ shine constantly and unceasingly, much as the light of our own sun casts light on the earth, when any one person determines to individualize that Spirit of Christ as a unique expression and identity manifest in form; when a soul incorporates the Son as the Third Person of the Holy Trinity corporally (bodily), the dynamics of winning this divine estate here and now while yet in the veils of flesh becomes an ongoing commitment to manifest the Christ Light daily.

The Many Offices and Titles of the Lord Christ, Personified in Jesus

For such a one as Jesus who determined long ago that he would integrate with the Christ Presence and Light and bring it into the uniqueness of his own being, in witnessing to this for the rest of humanity, he gave all the opportunity to observe the Word made flesh as described in John 1:144.

And as the Christ Presence assists all to become fully the Christ, when Jesus committed to totally identify himself with the Christ, the Logoic Logic of the Living Word became the cause and core of his very being. (And recall that same Presence helped Jesus himself pass the trials and initiations he endured in his Galilean ministry). And thus, he took on the responsibilities and job of Wayshower—the Exemplar. He would become then the Good Shepherd leading the flock of the rest of humanity to the living waters of the truth of who they are in God Reality.

Jesus The Good Shepherd Today

Jesus desires us to know how he has used the titles, various roles and offices he holds as an Anointed Son of God to act as mediator, facilitator, and the open door for all to enter into the consciousness and experience of The Christ as it becomes personalized in each and every one of us.

Our Lord is desirous of imparting the higher truths for today to help us meet the challenges of the NOW on behalf of our families, communities, individual nations, ourselves and the very earth we live on.

The challenges we face come to us uniquely at a personal level and call us to remember that through the unity and oneness we all have in the Christ essence at our core, our individual path is connected to the greater path of all. We are indeed all connected in a circle of light.

Jesus on the Initiatic Path and Our Twelve Spiritual Rights1.
Our spiritual rights are those virtuous bestowals from the Divine One, our Creator, our Source, that allow us to live righteous lives. Our rights allow us to live righteously.

To love God and to love one another and all created beings.
That is a right. It’s also a command, but it’s a right. We have the right to do this and no one can take that right away from us—to love God and to love one another and all created beings.


To live, move and have our being in the light of our Divine Presence.

Affirm with beloved Magda her mantra: "I live and move and have my being in a living, liquid-crystal diamond of light". We have a right to do this, to feel and experience this. No one can take that away from us. It is our right.


To use the free will vouchsafed to us to glorify God and magnify the Lord.

We choose, through free will—it’s a choice, a conscious choice—to glorify God and magnify the Lord. God vouchsafed to us this free will, and it’s our right to use that free will virtuously, graciously, honourably as sons and daughters of God. This is really our purpose, to glorify God and magnify the Lord. And whatever your talents, your gifts, your qualifications are through school, through higher education, through employment, if you can use those talents, gifts and graces to glorify God and magnify the Lord, you will fulfil your destiny.


To co-create with our Creator and with other co-creators.

God is the original Creator, yet we, as sons and daughters of God, are co-creators. God vouchsafed to us free will to co-create with him/her. So this is a right; we have a right to co-create. We are sons and daughters of God created in his/her image and likeness. So if we’re created in the image and likeness of God, don’t you think God would give us this ability to co-create? .


To experience God’s beautiful creation within all of nature.

It’s our right to experience God’s beautiful creation within the natural order because God created it for us. You remember that in the Bible it says that God created the natural world in the first five days, then he created man and then woman on the sixth day, and then he rested on the seventh day. He created the natural world before he created his sons and daughters so that we could live in that natural world. So it’s our right to experience this.


To be loved, appreciated, touched and valued for who we are.

Every little baby has to be loved, appreciated, touched and valued. And we as adults have a right to be touched, loved, appreciated, valued. Touch is a type of love expressed. It’s a physical sensation of appreciation through the melding of two hearts and two auras. As brothers and sisters on the path, we are all in this together. We’re all on the initiatic path. We are all striving in the same dynamic through our daily tests and initiations. We’re going through it together. We’re going to get through it together. We do it more easily together. So we support one another, we love one another. We all have the right to be loved, appreciated, told what we’re doing well rather than all the negative stuff.


To give our gifts and talents and thereby to bless others and all life.

This is a right, to give our gifts and talents. We encourage everyone to give their gifts and to share their talents, because it’s important. God empowered us in the beginning, yet we’ve been kind of dumbed down by civilization [and the current educational system] to be in a suppressed mode. So we have to rise out of that, have our metamorphosis and be liberated.


To speak the truth and to speak our truth without fear of denigration.

Everyone has a voice; everyone has talents and gifts, and we have a right to speak the truth and our [own] truth. Jesus put the truth first, because what’s more important than our truth, our temporal little truths, is The Truth, the Higher Truth. We can access the truth by being true to ourselves, being true to our Higher Selves. And then, through that 'truth spirit' that we enter, which is vital and real, we can then access what people call "my truth" or "our truth", which is a part of the greater truth.


To walk a path of light, the path of initiation and to be initiated by the Divine One.

We have a right to walk this path of initiation,[under the aegis of Serapis Bey]. We have a right to be initiated, and the masters also have a right to initiate us. If we put ourselves in juxtaposition with them, if we call to them and ask for blessings and spiritual graces, they have a right to require us to use those graces and that light virtuously rather than for personal self-gain, for ego. So we have a right to walk this path of light, the path of initiation, and to be initiated by the Divine One.


We have the right to freely associate with others of like heart, mind and soul, especially in the sacred bonds of community.

To freely associate—this is one of the things that our founding fathers in the United States afforded us. We have the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights. The Bill of Rights includes freedom of religion, freedom to bear arms, freedom of speech, freedom of the press and freedom to peaceably assemble, which is association.


To learn, to grow, to evolve, to self-discover and to realize our highest potential.

We all have these rights. They’re etched in the very essence of our being. We have to learn, we have to grow, we have to evolve and we have to self-discover, because if we don’t, we’re not making progress and we might as well not be alive. Being alive means we have the inner urge and the inner desire to learn, to grow, to evolve, to self-discover like children, who are naturally inquisitive. And we usually lose some of that as we age. We have to be childlike, as Jesus said, so that we have that inquisitiveness again.


And finally,

We have the right to ascend and return to our natal state of perfect beingness with our Source, with God.

We have the right to ascend. So if you think that somehow you are not worthy to ascend at the close of this life, you have to dissolve and transmute that sense of unworthiness: “I’m not good enough. I’m not holy enough. I’m not spiritual enough.” Because, guess what? We’re all made in the same image and likeness, unique in our individuality, but born of the same Spirit and essence. And we all have a right to return to the heart of God through the spiritual initiatic path and to experience and maintain that state of oneness.

And once you’ve had the illumination, the reconnection (as some call it) and the quickening, it’s a matter of sustaining that experience of oneness.

Darshan with Jesus on the Dynamics of the Aquarian Family

We have a darshan now with beloved Jesus on the dynamics of the Aquarian family. This will be about ninety minutes, till one o'clock, and he will answer questions that you have here. It has to be about the family. We are not going to ask questions about our twin flame or what our divine plan is or what ray am I on, okay? And those on the broadcast can submit questions too. So if you'd like to ask a question, I think we have an extra mic from over here, right? Here we go.

If there aren't any questions, Jesus will just talk a little bit. Jesus would like to say that he had other brothers and sisters, and you don't really hear about them in the Gospels, except there are a few little intimations that they existed. He was the oldest and he loved his brothers and sisters—there were seven of them. And this is even being proved now through other sacred texts that have been rediscovered.

Jesus says that in Catholicism and Christianity, it's really unfortunate that everybody thought he was an only child. The concept that most of us had as Catholics was that the Holy Family was just Jesus, Joseph and Mary. And sometimes people use those names in vain, or sometimes they say “Jesus, Joseph and Mary” as a blessing to themselves. Yet imagine if we knew from our youth that there were other brothers and sisters and that Jesus' family—Mary and Joseph's family—was a lot larger. We could have celebrated this fact all through our childhood and our adult life.

All the brothers and sisters were individualists; they were all unique. They all had their strong points and some their weak points. As a whole, they got along very, very well. Yet, as with any large family, there were also situations that came up and issues that occurred.

Now, Jesus, as we know, went on a long journey when he was thirteen, and he was gone for quite some time. Some people think he was gone from thirteen to twenty-nine, yet I'm seeing through his eyes now that that was not necessarily the case. He may not have been gone that entire time in the Far East. Yes, he had much learning to do with the great masters from the East, yet he also was concerned about and loved his family. And he and Mary had a type of very wonderful telepathic communication, and we heard about this in a prior HeartStream. So even though he was separated for great stretches of time, there was a very wonderful aspect of how he communicated with his mother and she communicated with him that was absolutely magnificent and really miraculous.

Jesus also, as we know, went to Egypt as a very young child. And I'm seeing that at another point in his life he went to Egypt again. He received various initiations through the hierophant at Luxor, and this was a master that was there before Serapis Bey was there. Serapis Bey himself took over that function from a prior master. We know Serapis Bey was embodied in Greece and he did not ascend until after Jesus ascended.

There was an ancient mystery school in Egypt that predates Christianity, and many of the magi, or the wise men from the East, were also aware of this mystery school. Now, others of Jesus' brothers and sisters also studied the deeper mysteries. However, most of these studied with various initiates who had been part of or lived subsequent to the Essene community. As long as Joseph was alive, he also conveyed many of these deeper mysteries to the entire family.

If we really knew what happened in that family, it would transform our entire concept of what life was like in that family. Yes, they lived a very practical life in many respects; they had to do all the things that all of us do to take care of ourselves. Yet, just as we are interested in spiritual things and pray a lot and do meditation and other work, so the members of the Holy Family had their various chores, responsibilities and they were part of a family unit. The balance and the harmony within the family depended on each person performing their particular role.

As in many families—especially in Latin America—the older siblings would often tend to, take care of the younger ones. Mother Mary taught all of them very, very practical things, and so did Joseph as long as he was alive. Now, we know that Joseph was much older than Mary and he passed on before all of the children became adults. After he passed on, his presence was still very tangible in the family, and he supported them energetically from the heaven world.

It's interesting that some of these understandings of Jesus' brothers and sisters are in documents that are in the Vatican, and the Vatican even knows that Jesus travelled to the East. Yet because of the orthodoxy within the Catholic Church, they have never desired to reveal this information because it would transform Christianity as a whole. However, the truth is now being revealed. A lot of information has come forth from sacred scriptures that were hidden away. Other information comes from messengers of light whom the masters have revealed it to, and when we all ascend, I think we will be very interested in looking at these akashic records to actually know what really happened.

So I'm seeing a great angel opening the Book of Life now. And there are many, many events that are in the Book of Life—the akashic records—that will be revealed in subsequent months and years. And if I live long enough, maybe much of this will be revealed. And some of this may be revealed through other true messengers. The most accurate record, of course, is in the akashic records. Some of the stories about Jesus early on were embellished and not completely 100 percent accurate. Yet there are some deeper mysteries within these stories that reveal certain ancient truths that we can take to heart.

So now, does anybody have any questions? First __________, then __________, and then the one online.

Question:  Beloved Jesus, can you please tell us a little bit more about the relationship you had with your father, Saint Germain, and also a little bit about what the ideal relationship is between a father and his son?

David:  I think you mean Saint Joseph at the time, right? Not now, okay. Joseph loved Jesus with his entire being, and Jesus felt this deep love. Even though Mary held Jesus as an infant more than Joseph did, there were many, many times when Joseph held Jesus because Mary was involved in other things. And one of the most iconic images in the churches is of Joseph holding Jesus. And just in this representation there is a great truth revealed of the importance of the relationship between father and young child.

Joseph spoke very tenderly to Jesus as his father, and even in his infancy he would say things that would inspire the soul of Jesus to grow. He would reveal deep mysteries in a very powerful way that even the young child could understand. Now, we know that Saint Germain, who was Joseph, later was the primary writer of the Shakespearean plays. Even as Joseph, he was a phenomenal storyteller. And Jesus became a great teacher through parables. Where do you think he learned how to tell stories? From his father. His father would tell him little funny stories, but they always were filled with rich descriptions and important lessons. He imparted many of the virtues in these stories, how important it was to live the virtues. He was kind of like an Aesop of that time.

Jesus was always looking straight at Joseph's face when he would tell the stories. Jesus, as a young child, was so in wonder and enthralled with the face of his father. Joseph looked like the most amazing man who ever walked the Earth, as Jesus' father. To Jesus, he was like God. And so as he looked at the face of Joseph as Joseph told these stories, sometimes Jesus—even as a young child—would have these deep mystical experiences. And the angels in heaven would open up records from the past—even of Joseph's past—and show him amazing things.

So in the thirteen years that they were alive together in that family, Joseph fulfilled his role in imparting very important truths to the soul of Jesus. Joseph was much more than a carpenter. He was a great initiate of the sacred fire; even then he was an alchemist. He wasn't working with elements in a laboratory, of course, yet he was always engaged in some type of divine experiment and work. And when he would finish a project and show it to Mary, Jesus and some of the other children, there was always a great celebration of this accomplishment and everyone would be amazed at the beauty of what Joseph had created.

Both Jesus and all the children learned how to pour themselves into their work, how to invest so much love and care and reverence in the work. Joseph taught them that that love and care and reverence was actually embedded as a life force, or energy, within what they created.

Now, here is a really funny story. I read a story long ago in The Lost Books of the Bible and the Forgotten Books of Eden that said that Jesus had made these little birds out of mud, and then he breathed life into them and they flew away. So I was wondering whether this was one of the stories that was not true. Yet Jesus is saying today that it is true. And the reason it is, is because after Joseph told this one little story, Jesus had so much belief and faith and acceptance that it was true that he decided to just do it himself. And in his innocence and in his total belief, it became a reality. Now, there were only two birds that he did this with, so we can imagine them as the two turtle doves. You know in the song about the twelve days of Christmas, two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree. Maybe it's an American song. So when Jesus performed this seeming miracle, it was just the beginning of many, many amazing things that happened.

What's the difference between doing that and turning water into wine or multiplying the loaves and fishes? It's just substance that's transformed into another substance. So it was amazing that Jesus did this, yet it wasn't so exceptional to him—it was just kind of like he did it. So what does this teach us today? Mother Mary just told us to imagine miracles, and Joseph gave Jesus the same teaching. Through the power of imagination, we can do anything. It is all about belief, faith and acceptance.

So to recapitulate now, the relationship was profound, yet also very anchored in materiality, as well as spirituality. Joseph was the most practical living being on the Earth at that time, yet also one of the most absolutely spiritually advanced. And he imparted to Jesus the importance of the balance of spirituality and practicality. And, of course, Jesus demonstrated this throughout his life. He cared about every individual. He would often precipitate food for people before he fed them spiritually.

The story of the loaves and fishes and also what he did on the shores of the Sea of Galilee, where he fed them with fish, were just two examples. He had already demonstrated this ability in the Far East. And many events happened that were never recorded in books, which this angel who opened this book today will share with our souls and our spirits on the inner.

If you make the call before you retire to sleep tonight to go to the sacred retreat of the Holy Family over Cuernavaca, this angel will open these records so that you can see a lot more, and you'll all be amazed, even if you don't remember them in the morning. That experience will register in your spirit and it will enrich you with so much joy. So thank you for the question.

Question:  I am __________ and __________'s father and I also have other kids. I received the call of the ascended masters and I became a Keeper of the Flame, and even before that we had spiritual practices with my kids. Once I became a Keeper of the Flame, I told them to do the same. When I went to Summit, I went with my daughter __________. So my first question is, what are the changes that are manifesting in the Aquarian Age compared to the Piscean Age regarding the relationship of the husband and wife?

David:  The family unit is the sacred unit of community and of all beings. The current trends in homosexuality are not based on universal truth. We will not see that in the Aquarian Age, because people will understand the nature of family and the importance of the Alpha-to-Omega and the Omega-to-Alpha relationship.

So the relationships in Aquarius will be similar to what we had in our time, before all of the current societal, I would say, perversions that are occurring. However, in some societies, women were not “equal” to men in their station in life. And in the Aquarian Age, of course, there is complete and total equality at all levels. Women will not be seen as objects for sexual gratification. They will be revered for their sensitivity, their spirituality, of course their beauty, and their divine motherhood. Likewise, men will not be looked upon as only someone to provide for you. There is one who is the Great Provider, and that is God. We even refer to God as Providence. We will all understand that our providence comes from the Divine and that both men and women are vehicles for this providence to flow to the family.

Both men and women can be ones who nurture the souls and the bodies of their children, and there is and will be a new equality in how this manifests. Yes, women are the ones who initially care for the infant children; they nurse them; they're there all the time. Yet men will also step up to take more of a role in caring for and nurturing children so that the women can also engage in activities that are part of their divine plan.

Now, as a generalization, women are the greatest of the educators, especially for younger children. Most of the teachers are women. Why is this? Because they are very wise and they have a great, great ability to convey that wisdom to their students. This will not change in the Golden Age; it's still going to be true. Yet maybe a few more men will develop the sensitivity that the women have so they can be teachers.

So what I see happening is a great balance. Where there has been imbalance, there will be established greater balance. Where the scales have benefitted men in the past more than women, there will be balance so that there is co-equality. And likewise, where men have not been in touch with their divine feminine self, they will develop this spirituality so that they can actually be balanced themselves. The greatest transformations will be in those cultures where there has been the worst imbalance, and unfortunately even today in some of these cultures it's very imbalanced.

So, generally, this transition time is a time of the raising of the feminine light. Once we have the Aquarian Age, everyone—both men and women—will be more self-realized and neither side will attempt to dominate or pervert or control the other. There's a beautiful reciprocity and harmony. There's a sharing of responsibilities rather than some saying, “That's your responsibility only.” And then it's a natural and gentle flow and a cooperation and collaboration that's very beautiful. So thank you for the question.

Participant:  My second question has already been answered. We are going to give equal education to both women and men.

David:  Absolutely. Amen. Awoman!

Participant:  Because my daughters will complain a lot about that. I know how to educate children. What do parents need to do and what are our spiritual obligations with children once they are adults?

David:  We've heard the teaching that your obligation ends at thirty-three. So as adults, your responsibility is more energetic and spiritual—to continue to convey wisdom, yet recognize that the person is an adult and they are now, in their life, at that point of personal responsibility. As a father or a mother of an adult, it's a little better to only give advice when asked, because every adult has to learn through personal experience. And if your adult parent is constantly advising you, it feels like a disempowerment.

Now, as a parent of adult children, it's good to ask questions, “How are you doing in your own parenting? Do you have any questions for me about how I can help you through my great wisdom, having raised you, which you are now experiencing and having some issues with? You see, my child, I had all these issues with you, and now you're learning what I already went through.”

Sometimes you can, in a fun spirit, reflect back certain things and share adult lessons where you are now more on par with your adult child. You are not above them just because you're their parent. You relate to them as another adult. And your children will really appreciate this type of relationship, because they are fully adults and they will naturally seek your wisdom. Now David will give an example in his life. It's actually in my wife's life, and I think it's okay to relate this, Mona. Okay.

Mona's daughter will call her, or sometimes Mona calls her daughter. Her daughter is  thirty-five years old and she's constantly asking her mother, Mona, for advice. And Mona very generously and lovingly conveys it because her daughter has become very wise and realizes how wise her mother is. And the advice that Mona gives to her daughter is very, very important, and her daughter seems to always accept it very appreciatively. And there is a great love relationship there; there is a respect and a cooperative spirit that has actually made the relationship greater than ever before. We know that sometimes when children go through their teen years they get very rebellious. And so when they get older and are adults, it seems as if their parents become very wise, almost overnight.

There's a joke about this, right? And the joke is that the teenager, when he becomes twenty, says, “Oh, my dad just became so smart all of a sudden,” but it was really the child who awakened and realized how smart their parent was. So I hope that helps a little bit.

Question:  I thank Jesus' Presence, and I want to tell him that I love him very much. The families who do not live together in the same place, how can they perform the role of an Aquarian family from the place where they are?

David:  You are always tied to one another through your heart. And in this modern age of instant communication through the Internet, phone systems, computers, et cetera, your parents or your children aren't that far away. You can communicate through texting, emails, phone calls or Skype right away. And more importantly, the love of your parents—if they are truly loving parents—is always with you. Your love for your parents—if you're a loving child—is always with your parents. That love is what binds you together as a family, not just being in the same physical house.

People can be in the same house, but divided. There can be a lot of animosity and division. So that proves that just living together doesn't necessarily mean that you are harmonious. Likewise, you can be separated physically in different homes, but through the bonds of your love for each other, you are just one breath away, one heartbeat away.

So whenever you have a question or a problem, call or text or email your mom. If your mom hasn't heard from you in a while, what's going on in your life? Are you okay? What sustains the relationship is loving communication and that can happen all the time. We just heard that Jesus, even though he was in India or Tibet or Nepal, was telepathically communicating with his mother because the relationship was so strong. You can do the same thing; you can even send a ray of a thought or a feeling to your mom. She will actually receive that at a soul or spirit level, and she may just pick up on it and call you or send a prayer.

There are many people in these relationships who can almost complete each other's sentences. I can tell you dozens of examples—this is David—of my relationship with my wife. I'll be thinking of something and she verbalizes it. And I say, “I was just thinking about that.” So how often does that happen with you? That proves this dynamic that communication happens through the heart and you can be in a constant form and stream of communication based on love, which is so powerful and dynamic that you won't feel separated, even if your homes are somewhere else.

Question:  Beloved father Jesus, I would like to ask you if you can tell us, now that we are sons and daughters, how can we, as a son or a daughter, start to bring out this balance in our family's lives?

David:  I presume what you mean is that maybe your parents are not quite as sensitive or advanced as you are. Is that what you mean?

Participant:  They are, but I'm actually the spiritual anchor in my family. They're also into spiritual practice.

David:  Well, you know the answer to this because you're already doing it. It's to be that pillar of love and light, and a lot of it is just being true, faithful, honest, respectful and patient. And if your parents are at all sensitive, they will see how amazing you are through your behaviors and practices, and they will actually ask you questions and seek your wisdom.

Even though I don't desire to do this, Jesus is telling me that I have to. In my family, I was the first to become a vegetarian out of ten children. And then I found The Summit Lighthouse when I was eighteen. I went to Summit University when I was nineteen. And then my mother came a year later and may father a year after that. They saw the changes in me and liked what they saw. So they thought, “If this is working for David, maybe it'll work for us.” Now both my parents are ascended. What I realized is that they were really advanced. I thought I was so advanced. They were the ones who brought me into this world. They went through World War II, lived through the depression—amazing, amazing parents. Imagine having ten children—that was the test of the ten. So really, I give honor where it's due.

Yes, I'm doing what I'm doing as a messenger, but they prepared the way. They set the table. They changed my diapers and did everything else they could to educate and prepare me. So we worked as a team, and we're still working as a team. So see your family as a team. Sometimes team members perform the same role at different times. Sometimes in basketball, one person shoots and another person passes, and then in the next play the other person shoots and the other person passes.

So we do our work and respect everyone in our family, and we take turns performing certain roles. And it becomes an amazing alchemy of togetherness and oneness. Right now you may be the spiritual anchor for your family, yet I can assure you that you were born through your parents, you chose them, they chose you and they knew exactly who you were and what you would become. You knew before you were born their faults and their virtues. And you all worked on this beautiful plan and it's working out very well, because you are so beautiful, you are so amazing and you have to give part of that glory to God through your parents. So just keep thinking and loving and appreciating them, saying every day, “I love you; I appreciate you; thank you for raising me; thank you for feeding me; thank you for teaching me; I love you.” And that love will build a spiritual relationship in a more powerful matrix. And one day they will thank you for who you are, what you've become and how you've changed their lives.

Question:  I feel a lot of joy for being so close to Jesus when I was a child. I am a teacher and I sometimes have doubts on the path that I am on because I teach mathematics and Spanish grammar. I have become a mother to a lot of my students. So my question is how can I still be there, because sometimes I have doubts?

David:  After motherhood, being a teacher is the most sacred of all vocations. You are the great influencer of their minds, their hearts, their souls. As you convey to your students the truths of both the instruction and the truth of your essence, of loving them as a true teacher/educator, they will really expand in awareness and appreciate you both as a teacher and as a friend and kind of a mother. Sometimes children don't have very positive role models in their parents, so their teacher may be more of a divine role model. I can assure you, they will always remember you as one of the best teachers they've ever had when you love them and pray for them.

And sometimes that love is expressed as tough love. Discipline here and there is not bad; it helps them to control their emotions, their physical bodies and actions. And yet if there's tremendous respect between students and teacher and between teacher and students—because it's a two-way street—the relationship that's built will extend itself into other relationships. And you will help them become more whole as they go through school and life, and you can help them heal themselves and their families.

I know many women who are teachers who never had children of their own. Yet I've said to a few of these women, “All your students are your children.” God had so many children for you that he made you a teacher. And I can assure you that when some of these students grow older, they will come back to you years later and thank you for being the teacher that you were— that loved them, that respected them and that really taught them. You taught them more than just grammar or math—you taught them about life and about what's really important. I see all these children tugging on your apron strings and relying on you as their true teacher.

Now, the masters have placed many, many spirited and spiritual people in teaching positions. This is where they first learn about the path. And when they learn these lessons in school, it will translate for them throughout their entire life too. So when the path of the ascended masters comes along, they will be ready to step into that position and that light. I know some teachers that actually introduce ascended-master concepts, very subtly. It's not in the children's face. It's very subtle yet very [inaudible], with the right meditation, and of course also following the values of your school, what you are expected to teach.

You can always introduce some very important concepts about life, and I don't think anyone would be opposed to that. And even the parents of those children may come to you and say, “What are you doing? My children are so good. What did you do in class? I want to get to know who you are.” And then, where appropriate, you can share some more, without jeopardizing your job, of course. Just be very careful. It's a great position and role to be in. Remember Jesus' words today: the most important vocation after motherhood is teaching. So thank you.

Question:  Thank you, Jesus, for being here. How can I keep a balance between being a mother that protects and the Buddhic indifference and be able to see every person with the immaculate concept? It is relatively easy to forgive when somebody harms you or does something bad to you, but when a person harms your children, it's difficult to avoid reacting.

David:  Jesus is showing me a number of people who have had their children murdered and who forgave the murderer. This is one of the hardest things to do. “Why did you kill my child?” Yet with true Christian values of forgiveness, we have to forgive because that is the only thing that frees us from the hurt, sorrow and despair. If we continue to harbor anger and hatred toward the person who did the vile act, that keeps us in a cocoon of darkness. If we forgive them, we are involved in light.

What would you rather live in, light or a cocoon of darkness? Does this mean that you allow people to hurt your children? No, you defend them with your entire being. You would never allow someone to hurt your child or kill them when you can prevent it. Yet if some evil deed occurs and someone has abused your children or done something very dark, you separate the act from the person. You forgive the person, even as you condemn the act. And in this understanding, which comes through this separation of the deed, or the act, from the person, you come to a new realization of who you are, because Jesus assures all of us that in past lives we've done the same thing. So what we condemn in others, we've done.

Remember when he wrote in the sand when the people were ready to stone the woman to death for adultery?1 He was writing all of their sins from that life in the past. He was anchoring in the physical plane the karma that they had from their own acts, which was even worse in many cases than what that woman had done. And so they were all condemned by what he wrote, and they could not, then, stone her to death. So realize that none of us has lived perfectly in our lifetimes. And when we understand this, we can be much more forgiving and understanding. There but for the grace of God go I. This is a statement we can say to ourselves when we see someone else in a situation that's very trying, which we could have been in too.

Question:  Thank you, beloved Father, for allowing me to share now. I would like to ask, if instead of making the sign of the cross, is it correct to say “I AM the way, the truth and the life”?

David:  [applause] I AM the way, the truth and the life. Thank you.

So now those online.

Question:  Beloved Jesus, there are so many single-mother families in the world, which causes issues for the children and the mothers who don't then have a father figure. What can we do to change this?

David:  Three things. First is to pray for a father figure to come into the life of your child or the lives of single mothers that you know. In some cases, it could be, let's say, the brother of the mother—that's an uncle. It could be a grandfather or just another man that comes into the life of that woman who can be that father figure. Secondly, we can ask the masters to support that woman and to anchor the light of the father energy within the life of the child. In some cases, those mothers have to be kind of both mother and father, fulfill both roles, until a man comes. Yet this is one of the most difficult situations, and it does cause a lot of potential problems down the road.

Now, the men who abandon their wives and their children and don't provide child support are creating a heap of karma. And Jesus reminds us that long ago Saint Germain told us that if you've done this in this life, where you have basically abandoned your children and not provided child support, don't expect to make your ascension. It's part of manhood and your responsibility to provide. Unfortunately, many men will get the woman pregnant and then have nothing to do with the woman after that or the children that are born. This is a great travesty and it must be corrected. We must teach men how important their responsibility is as fathers.

Unfortunately, in our civilization today, with the perverted sexual mores that we have accepted in our culture, sex at a very early age has become more normal. People are not taught how important it is to prepare for their children's coming. They have sex out of wedlock and then neither one takes accountability, and the mother either aborts or the father encourages the abortion.

So you mothers and you women are also part of this process. Choose your man wisely. Don't engage in sexual activity before you're prepared to have children. We shouldn't have sex before we are ready to take the responsibility of having children. The primary purpose of sex is to bring forth children; it's not just for pleasure. It can be very pleasurable, yet its primary purpose is for procreation.

How many children are taught this by their parents from an early age so that they go into this relationship with their heads on straight? Unfortunately, with Hollywood and all the movies and all the media, we're not taught appropriately from early childhood. So it's more difficult to correct a problem after it has manifested than to prevent it. So Jesus' teaching is to try to prevent this from occurring to save more women from becoming single mothers.

Now, the third part of this is that if you are a single mother, pray to heaven to bring you the man that completes you and will help raise your child. Jesus assures you that there is always the right man who can come into your life, even if you're a single mother, who will love you, your child or children and support both of you. So just do your alchemy and pray. That's all that Jesus can say about it now.

Question:  Can you tell us any more about what Jesus' parents did to help him deal with his teenage years and to avoid common temptations?

This is such an important question, which Jesus would like to answer at another time and allow even maybe twenty minutes to answer it. And hopefully we'll have time either during this event or at another time for him to answer it and really give us a depth of teaching. I just don't desire to rush this right now. So thank you, everyone.

Darshan with Jesus on the Dynamics of the Aquarian Family

We have a darshan now with beloved Jesus on the dynamics of the Aquarian family. This will be about ninety minutes, till one o'clock, and he will answer questions that you have here. It has to be about the family. We are not going to ask questions about our twin flame or what our divine plan is or what ray am I on, okay? And those on the broadcast can submit questions too. So if you'd like to ask a question, I think we have an extra mic from over here, right? Here we go.

If there aren't any questions, Jesus will just talk a little bit. Jesus would like to say that he had other brothers and sisters, and you don't really hear about them in the Gospels, except there are a few little intimations that they existed. He was the oldest and he loved his brothers and sisters—there were seven of them. And this is even being proved now through other sacred texts that have been rediscovered.

Jesus says that in Catholicism and Christianity, it's really unfortunate that everybody thought he was an only child. The concept that most of us had as Catholics was that the Holy Family was just Jesus, Joseph and Mary. And sometimes people use those names in vain, or sometimes they say “Jesus, Joseph and Mary” as a blessing to themselves. Yet imagine if we knew from our youth that there were other brothers and sisters and that Jesus' family—Mary and Joseph's family—was a lot larger. We could have celebrated this fact all through our childhood and our adult life.

All the brothers and sisters were individualists; they were all unique. They all had their strong points and some their weak points. As a whole, they got along very, very well. Yet, as with any large family, there were also situations that came up and issues that occurred.

Now, Jesus, as we know, went on a long journey when he was thirteen, and he was gone for quite some time. Some people think he was gone from thirteen to twenty-nine, yet I'm seeing through his eyes now that that was not necessarily the case. He may not have been gone that entire time in the Far East. Yes, he had much learning to do with the great masters from the East, yet he also was concerned about and loved his family. And he and Mary had a type of very wonderful telepathic communication, and we heard about this in a prior HeartStream. So even though he was separated for great stretches of time, there was a very wonderful aspect of how he communicated with his mother and she communicated with him that was absolutely magnificent and really miraculous.

Jesus also, as we know, went to Egypt as a very young child. And I'm seeing that at another point in his life he went to Egypt again. He received various initiations through the hierophant at Luxor, and this was a master that was there before Serapis Bey was there. Serapis Bey himself took over that function from a prior master. We know Serapis Bey was embodied in Greece and he did not ascend until after Jesus ascended.

There was an ancient mystery school in Egypt that predates Christianity, and many of the magi, or the wise men from the East, were also aware of this mystery school. Now, others of Jesus' brothers and sisters also studied the deeper mysteries. However, most of these studied with various initiates who had been part of or lived subsequent to the Essene community. As long as Joseph was alive, he also conveyed many of these deeper mysteries to the entire family.

If we really knew what happened in that family, it would transform our entire concept of what life was like in that family. Yes, they lived a very practical life in many respects; they had to do all the things that all of us do to take care of ourselves. Yet, just as we are interested in spiritual things and pray a lot and do meditation and other work, so the members of the Holy Family had their various chores, responsibilities and they were part of a family unit. The balance and the harmony within the family depended on each person performing their particular role.

As in many families—especially in Latin America—the older siblings would often tend to, take care of the younger ones. Mother Mary taught all of them very, very practical things, and so did Joseph as long as he was alive. Now, we know that Joseph was much older than Mary and he passed on before all of the children became adults. After he passed on, his presence was still very tangible in the family, and he supported them energetically from the heaven world.

It's interesting that some of these understandings of Jesus' brothers and sisters are in documents that are in the Vatican, and the Vatican even knows that Jesus travelled to the East. Yet because of the orthodoxy within the Catholic Church, they have never desired to reveal this information because it would transform Christianity as a whole. However, the truth is now being revealed. A lot of information has come forth from sacred scriptures that were hidden away. Other information comes from messengers of light whom the masters have revealed it to, and when we all ascend, I think we will be very interested in looking at these akashic records to actually know what really happened.

So I'm seeing a great angel opening the Book of Life now. And there are many, many events that are in the Book of Life—the akashic records—that will be revealed in subsequent months and years. And if I live long enough, maybe much of this will be revealed. And some of this may be revealed through other true messengers. The most accurate record, of course, is in the akashic records. Some of the stories about Jesus early on were embellished and not completely 100 percent accurate. Yet there are some deeper mysteries within these stories that reveal certain ancient truths that we can take to heart.

So now, does anybody have any questions? First __________, then __________, and then the one online.

Question:  Beloved Jesus, can you please tell us a little bit more about the relationship you had with your father, Saint Germain, and also a little bit about what the ideal relationship is between a father and his son?

David:  I think you mean Saint Joseph at the time, right? Not now, okay. Joseph loved Jesus with his entire being, and Jesus felt this deep love. Even though Mary held Jesus as an infant more than Joseph did, there were many, many times when Joseph held Jesus because Mary was involved in other things. And one of the most iconic images in the churches is of Joseph holding Jesus. And just in this representation there is a great truth revealed of the importance of the relationship between father and young child.

Joseph spoke very tenderly to Jesus as his father, and even in his infancy he would say things that would inspire the soul of Jesus to grow. He would reveal deep mysteries in a very powerful way that even the young child could understand. Now, we know that Saint Germain, who was Joseph, later was the primary writer of the Shakespearean plays. Even as Joseph, he was a phenomenal storyteller. And Jesus became a great teacher through parables. Where do you think he learned how to tell stories? From his father. His father would tell him little funny stories, but they always were filled with rich descriptions and important lessons. He imparted many of the virtues in these stories, how important it was to live the virtues. He was kind of like an Aesop of that time.

Jesus was always looking straight at Joseph's face when he would tell the stories. Jesus, as a young child, was so in wonder and enthralled with the face of his father. Joseph looked like the most amazing man who ever walked the Earth, as Jesus' father. To Jesus, he was like God. And so as he looked at the face of Joseph as Joseph told these stories, sometimes Jesus—even as a young child—would have these deep mystical experiences. And the angels in heaven would open up records from the past—even of Joseph's past—and show him amazing things.

So in the thirteen years that they were alive together in that family, Joseph fulfilled his role in imparting very important truths to the soul of Jesus. Joseph was much more than a carpenter. He was a great initiate of the sacred fire; even then he was an alchemist. He wasn't working with elements in a laboratory, of course, yet he was always engaged in some type of divine experiment and work. And when he would finish a project and show it to Mary, Jesus and some of the other children, there was always a great celebration of this accomplishment and everyone would be amazed at the beauty of what Joseph had created.

Both Jesus and all the children learned how to pour themselves into their work, how to invest so much love and care and reverence in the work. Joseph taught them that that love and care and reverence was actually embedded as a life force, or energy, within what they created.

Now, here is a really funny story. I read a story long ago in The Lost Books of the Bible and the Forgotten Books of Eden that said that Jesus had made these little birds out of mud, and then he breathed life into them and they flew away. So I was wondering whether this was one of the stories that was not true. Yet Jesus is saying today that it is true. And the reason it is, is because after Joseph told this one little story, Jesus had so much belief and faith and acceptance that it was true that he decided to just do it himself. And in his innocence and in his total belief, it became a reality. Now, there were only two birds that he did this with, so we can imagine them as the two turtle doves. You know in the song about the twelve days of Christmas, two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree. Maybe it's an American song. So when Jesus performed this seeming miracle, it was just the beginning of many, many amazing things that happened.

What's the difference between doing that and turning water into wine or multiplying the loaves and fishes? It's just substance that's transformed into another substance. So it was amazing that Jesus did this, yet it wasn't so exceptional to him—it was just kind of like he did it. So what does this teach us today? Mother Mary just told us to imagine miracles, and Joseph gave Jesus the same teaching. Through the power of imagination, we can do anything. It is all about belief, faith and acceptance.

So to recapitulate now, the relationship was profound, yet also very anchored in materiality, as well as spirituality. Joseph was the most practical living being on the Earth at that time, yet also one of the most absolutely spiritually advanced. And he imparted to Jesus the importance of the balance of spirituality and practicality. And, of course, Jesus demonstrated this throughout his life. He cared about every individual. He would often precipitate food for people before he fed them spiritually.

The story of the loaves and fishes and also what he did on the shores of the Sea of Galilee, where he fed them with fish, were just two examples. He had already demonstrated this ability in the Far East. And many events happened that were never recorded in books, which this angel who opened this book today will share with our souls and our spirits on the inner.

If you make the call before you retire to sleep tonight to go to the sacred retreat of the Holy Family over Cuernavaca, this angel will open these records so that you can see a lot more, and you'll all be amazed, even if you don't remember them in the morning. That experience will register in your spirit and it will enrich you with so much joy. So thank you for the question.

Question:  I am __________ and __________'s father and I also have other kids. I received the call of the ascended masters and I became a Keeper of the Flame, and even before that we had spiritual practices with my kids. Once I became a Keeper of the Flame, I told them to do the same. When I went to Summit, I went with my daughter __________. So my first question is, what are the changes that are manifesting in the Aquarian Age compared to the Piscean Age regarding the relationship of the husband and wife?

David:  The family unit is the sacred unit of community and of all beings. The current trends in homosexuality are not based on universal truth. We will not see that in the Aquarian Age, because people will understand the nature of family and the importance of the Alpha-to-Omega and the Omega-to-Alpha relationship.

So the relationships in Aquarius will be similar to what we had in our time, before all of the current societal, I would say, perversions that are occurring. However, in some societies, women were not “equal” to men in their station in life. And in the Aquarian Age, of course, there is complete and total equality at all levels. Women will not be seen as objects for sexual gratification. They will be revered for their sensitivity, their spirituality, of course their beauty, and their divine motherhood. Likewise, men will not be looked upon as only someone to provide for you. There is one who is the Great Provider, and that is God. We even refer to God as Providence. We will all understand that our providence comes from the Divine and that both men and women are vehicles for this providence to flow to the family.

Both men and women can be ones who nurture the souls and the bodies of their children, and there is and will be a new equality in how this manifests. Yes, women are the ones who initially care for the infant children; they nurse them; they're there all the time. Yet men will also step up to take more of a role in caring for and nurturing children so that the women can also engage in activities that are part of their divine plan.

Now, as a generalization, women are the greatest of the educators, especially for younger children. Most of the teachers are women. Why is this? Because they are very wise and they have a great, great ability to convey that wisdom to their students. This will not change in the Golden Age; it's still going to be true. Yet maybe a few more men will develop the sensitivity that the women have so they can be teachers.

So what I see happening is a great balance. Where there has been imbalance, there will be established greater balance. Where the scales have benefitted men in the past more than women, there will be balance so that there is co-equality. And likewise, where men have not been in touch with their divine feminine self, they will develop this spirituality so that they can actually be balanced themselves. The greatest transformations will be in those cultures where there has been the worst imbalance, and unfortunately even today in some of these cultures it's very imbalanced.

So, generally, this transition time is a time of the raising of the feminine light. Once we have the Aquarian Age, everyone—both men and women—will be more self-realized and neither side will attempt to dominate or pervert or control the other. There's a beautiful reciprocity and harmony. There's a sharing of responsibilities rather than some saying, “That's your responsibility only.” And then it's a natural and gentle flow and a cooperation and collaboration that's very beautiful. So thank you for the question.

Participant:  My second question has already been answered. We are going to give equal education to both women and men.

David:  Absolutely. Amen. Awoman!

Participant:  Because my daughters will complain a lot about that. I know how to educate children. What do parents need to do and what are our spiritual obligations with children once they are adults?

David:  We've heard the teaching that your obligation ends at thirty-three. So as adults, your responsibility is more energetic and spiritual—to continue to convey wisdom, yet recognize that the person is an adult and they are now, in their life, at that point of personal responsibility. As a father or a mother of an adult, it's a little better to only give advice when asked, because every adult has to learn through personal experience. And if your adult parent is constantly advising you, it feels like a disempowerment.

Now, as a parent of adult children, it's good to ask questions, “How are you doing in your own parenting? Do you have any questions for me about how I can help you through my great wisdom, having raised you, which you are now experiencing and having some issues with? You see, my child, I had all these issues with you, and now you're learning what I already went through.”

Sometimes you can, in a fun spirit, reflect back certain things and share adult lessons where you are now more on par with your adult child. You are not above them just because you're their parent. You relate to them as another adult. And your children will really appreciate this type of relationship, because they are fully adults and they will naturally seek your wisdom. Now David will give an example in his life. It's actually in my wife's life, and I think it's okay to relate this, Mona. Okay.

Mona's daughter will call her, or sometimes Mona calls her daughter. Her daughter is  thirty-five years old and she's constantly asking her mother, Mona, for advice. And Mona very generously and lovingly conveys it because her daughter has become very wise and realizes how wise her mother is. And the advice that Mona gives to her daughter is very, very important, and her daughter seems to always accept it very appreciatively. And there is a great love relationship there; there is a respect and a cooperative spirit that has actually made the relationship greater than ever before. We know that sometimes when children go through their teen years they get very rebellious. And so when they get older and are adults, it seems as if their parents become very wise, almost overnight.

There's a joke about this, right? And the joke is that the teenager, when he becomes twenty, says, “Oh, my dad just became so smart all of a sudden,” but it was really the child who awakened and realized how smart their parent was. So I hope that helps a little bit.

Question:  I thank Jesus' Presence, and I want to tell him that I love him very much. The families who do not live together in the same place, how can they perform the role of an Aquarian family from the place where they are?

David:  You are always tied to one another through your heart. And in this modern age of instant communication through the Internet, phone systems, computers, et cetera, your parents or your children aren't that far away. You can communicate through texting, emails, phone calls or Skype right away. And more importantly, the love of your parents—if they are truly loving parents—is always with you. Your love for your parents—if you're a loving child—is always with your parents. That love is what binds you together as a family, not just being in the same physical house.

People can be in the same house, but divided. There can be a lot of animosity and division. So that proves that just living together doesn't necessarily mean that you are harmonious. Likewise, you can be separated physically in different homes, but through the bonds of your love for each other, you are just one breath away, one heartbeat away.

So whenever you have a question or a problem, call or text or email your mom. If your mom hasn't heard from you in a while, what's going on in your life? Are you okay? What sustains the relationship is loving communication and that can happen all the time. We just heard that Jesus, even though he was in India or Tibet or Nepal, was telepathically communicating with his mother because the relationship was so strong. You can do the same thing; you can even send a ray of a thought or a feeling to your mom. She will actually receive that at a soul or spirit level, and she may just pick up on it and call you or send a prayer.

There are many people in these relationships who can almost complete each other's sentences. I can tell you dozens of examples—this is David—of my relationship with my wife. I'll be thinking of something and she verbalizes it. And I say, “I was just thinking about that.” So how often does that happen with you? That proves this dynamic that communication happens through the heart and you can be in a constant form and stream of communication based on love, which is so powerful and dynamic that you won't feel separated, even if your homes are somewhere else.

Question:  Beloved father Jesus, I would like to ask you if you can tell us, now that we are sons and daughters, how can we, as a son or a daughter, start to bring out this balance in our family's lives?

David:  I presume what you mean is that maybe your parents are not quite as sensitive or advanced as you are. Is that what you mean?

Participant:  They are, but I'm actually the spiritual anchor in my family. They're also into spiritual practice.

David:  Well, you know the answer to this because you're already doing it. It's to be that pillar of love and light, and a lot of it is just being true, faithful, honest, respectful and patient. And if your parents are at all sensitive, they will see how amazing you are through your behaviors and practices, and they will actually ask you questions and seek your wisdom.

Even though I don't desire to do this, Jesus is telling me that I have to. In my family, I was the first to become a vegetarian out of ten children. And then I found The Summit Lighthouse when I was eighteen. I went to Summit University when I was nineteen. And then my mother came a year later and may father a year after that. They saw the changes in me and liked what they saw. So they thought, “If this is working for David, maybe it'll work for us.” Now both my parents are ascended. What I realized is that they were really advanced. I thought I was so advanced. They were the ones who brought me into this world. They went through World War II, lived through the depression—amazing, amazing parents. Imagine having ten children—that was the test of the ten. So really, I give honor where it's due.

Yes, I'm doing what I'm doing as a messenger, but they prepared the way. They set the table. They changed my diapers and did everything else they could to educate and prepare me. So we worked as a team, and we're still working as a team. So see your family as a team. Sometimes team members perform the same role at different times. Sometimes in basketball, one person shoots and another person passes, and then in the next play the other person shoots and the other person passes.

So we do our work and respect everyone in our family, and we take turns performing certain roles. And it becomes an amazing alchemy of togetherness and oneness. Right now you may be the spiritual anchor for your family, yet I can assure you that you were born through your parents, you chose them, they chose you and they knew exactly who you were and what you would become. You knew before you were born their faults and their virtues. And you all worked on this beautiful plan and it's working out very well, because you are so beautiful, you are so amazing and you have to give part of that glory to God through your parents. So just keep thinking and loving and appreciating them, saying every day, “I love you; I appreciate you; thank you for raising me; thank you for feeding me; thank you for teaching me; I love you.” And that love will build a spiritual relationship in a more powerful matrix. And one day they will thank you for who you are, what you've become and how you've changed their lives.

Question:  I feel a lot of joy for being so close to Jesus when I was a child. I am a teacher and I sometimes have doubts on the path that I am on because I teach mathematics and Spanish grammar. I have become a mother to a lot of my students. So my question is how can I still be there, because sometimes I have doubts?

David:  After motherhood, being a teacher is the most sacred of all vocations. You are the great influencer of their minds, their hearts, their souls. As you convey to your students the truths of both the instruction and the truth of your essence, of loving them as a true teacher/educator, they will really expand in awareness and appreciate you both as a teacher and as a friend and kind of a mother. Sometimes children don't have very positive role models in their parents, so their teacher may be more of a divine role model. I can assure you, they will always remember you as one of the best teachers they've ever had when you love them and pray for them.

And sometimes that love is expressed as tough love. Discipline here and there is not bad; it helps them to control their emotions, their physical bodies and actions. And yet if there's tremendous respect between students and teacher and between teacher and students—because it's a two-way street—the relationship that's built will extend itself into other relationships. And you will help them become more whole as they go through school and life, and you can help them heal themselves and their families.

I know many women who are teachers who never had children of their own. Yet I've said to a few of these women, “All your students are your children.” God had so many children for you that he made you a teacher. And I can assure you that when some of these students grow older, they will come back to you years later and thank you for being the teacher that you were— that loved them, that respected them and that really taught them. You taught them more than just grammar or math—you taught them about life and about what's really important. I see all these children tugging on your apron strings and relying on you as their true teacher.

Now, the masters have placed many, many spirited and spiritual people in teaching positions. This is where they first learn about the path. And when they learn these lessons in school, it will translate for them throughout their entire life too. So when the path of the ascended masters comes along, they will be ready to step into that position and that light. I know some teachers that actually introduce ascended-master concepts, very subtly. It's not in the children's face. It's very subtle yet very [inaudible], with the right meditation, and of course also following the values of your school, what you are expected to teach.

You can always introduce some very important concepts about life, and I don't think anyone would be opposed to that. And even the parents of those children may come to you and say, “What are you doing? My children are so good. What did you do in class? I want to get to know who you are.” And then, where appropriate, you can share some more, without jeopardizing your job, of course. Just be very careful. It's a great position and role to be in. Remember Jesus' words today: the most important vocation after motherhood is teaching. So thank you.

Question:  Thank you, Jesus, for being here. How can I keep a balance between being a mother that protects and the Buddhic indifference and be able to see every person with the immaculate concept? It is relatively easy to forgive when somebody harms you or does something bad to you, but when a person harms your children, it's difficult to avoid reacting.

David:  Jesus is showing me a number of people who have had their children murdered and who forgave the murderer. This is one of the hardest things to do. “Why did you kill my child?” Yet with true Christian values of forgiveness, we have to forgive because that is the only thing that frees us from the hurt, sorrow and despair. If we continue to harbor anger and hatred toward the person who did the vile act, that keeps us in a cocoon of darkness. If we forgive them, we are involved in light.

What would you rather live in, light or a cocoon of darkness? Does this mean that you allow people to hurt your children? No, you defend them with your entire being. You would never allow someone to hurt your child or kill them when you can prevent it. Yet if some evil deed occurs and someone has abused your children or done something very dark, you separate the act from the person. You forgive the person, even as you condemn the act. And in this understanding, which comes through this separation of the deed, or the act, from the person, you come to a new realization of who you are, because Jesus assures all of us that in past lives we've done the same thing. So what we condemn in others, we've done.

Remember when he wrote in the sand when the people were ready to stone the woman to death for adultery?1 He was writing all of their sins from that life in the past. He was anchoring in the physical plane the karma that they had from their own acts, which was even worse in many cases than what that woman had done. And so they were all condemned by what he wrote, and they could not, then, stone her to death. So realize that none of us has lived perfectly in our lifetimes. And when we understand this, we can be much more forgiving and understanding. There but for the grace of God go I. This is a statement we can say to ourselves when we see someone else in a situation that's very trying, which we could have been in too.

Question:  Thank you, beloved Father, for allowing me to share now. I would like to ask, if instead of making the sign of the cross, is it correct to say “I AM the way, the truth and the life”?

David:  [applause] I AM the way, the truth and the life. Thank you.

So now those online.

Question:  Beloved Jesus, there are so many single-mother families in the world, which causes issues for the children and the mothers who don't then have a father figure. What can we do to change this?

David:  Three things. First is to pray for a father figure to come into the life of your child or the lives of single mothers that you know. In some cases, it could be, let's say, the brother of the mother—that's an uncle. It could be a grandfather or just another man that comes into the life of that woman who can be that father figure. Secondly, we can ask the masters to support that woman and to anchor the light of the father energy within the life of the child. In some cases, those mothers have to be kind of both mother and father, fulfill both roles, until a man comes. Yet this is one of the most difficult situations, and it does cause a lot of potential problems down the road.

Now, the men who abandon their wives and their children and don't provide child support are creating a heap of karma. And Jesus reminds us that long ago Saint Germain told us that if you've done this in this life, where you have basically abandoned your children and not provided child support, don't expect to make your ascension. It's part of manhood and your responsibility to provide. Unfortunately, many men will get the woman pregnant and then have nothing to do with the woman after that or the children that are born. This is a great travesty and it must be corrected. We must teach men how important their responsibility is as fathers.

Unfortunately, in our civilization today, with the perverted sexual mores that we have accepted in our culture, sex at a very early age has become more normal. People are not taught how important it is to prepare for their children's coming. They have sex out of wedlock and then neither one takes accountability, and the mother either aborts or the father encourages the abortion.

So you mothers and you women are also part of this process. Choose your man wisely. Don't engage in sexual activity before you're prepared to have children. We shouldn't have sex before we are ready to take the responsibility of having children. The primary purpose of sex is to bring forth children; it's not just for pleasure. It can be very pleasurable, yet its primary purpose is for procreation.

How many children are taught this by their parents from an early age so that they go into this relationship with their heads on straight? Unfortunately, with Hollywood and all the movies and all the media, we're not taught appropriately from early childhood. So it's more difficult to correct a problem after it has manifested than to prevent it. So Jesus' teaching is to try to prevent this from occurring to save more women from becoming single mothers.

Now, the third part of this is that if you are a single mother, pray to heaven to bring you the man that completes you and will help raise your child. Jesus assures you that there is always the right man who can come into your life, even if you're a single mother, who will love you, your child or children and support both of you. So just do your alchemy and pray. That's all that Jesus can say about it now.

Question:  Can you tell us any more about what Jesus' parents did to help him deal with his teenage years and to avoid common temptations?

This is such an important question, which Jesus would like to answer at another time and allow even maybe twenty minutes to answer it. And hopefully we'll have time either during this event or at another time for him to answer it and really give us a depth of teaching. I just don't desire to rush this right now. So thank you, everyone.
