End of the beginning
Part three of four
John 13- verse 1
"Jesus knew that the hour had come for him to
leave this world and go to the Father. Having
loved his own who were in the world, he loved them
to the end."
And then came the hard part.
Well resigned to a fate he saw coming,
Sananda/Jesus did three things to prepare himself
and those around him. He first came to to the
house where Lazarus lived and a dinner was being
prepared in his honor six days before the festival
of Passover in Bethany. There he told the crowd
that had gathered, "Anyone who loves their life
will lose it, while anyone who hates their life in
this world will keep it for eternal life." Without
spelling it out exactly, he was letting them know
that ascending to a higher dimension takes a love
of this third-dimensional life and all those in it
for only in the service of others can one even
consider moving on.
Next was the Last Supper, the hardest of the three
because of his foreknowledge of events to come. He
was soon to break the bonds holding himself and
the disciples together and knew all of them would
be deeply affected, especially Judas Iscariot.
Here too he stressed the importance of
self-sacrifice and caring for others when he said
" My command is this: Love each other as I have
loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to
lay down one’s life for one’s friends." Plainly
spoken so there would be no misunderstanding, the
simple rules of karma were laid out as a path for
salvation from an eternity spent on the third
dimension. His fulfillment of the scriptures was
nearly finished but one last preparation was left.
That took place when Jesus and his disciples
crossed over the Kidron Valley and came to the
Mount of Olives where he would also make his
ascension after his death.
Having first prepared the people and then his
disciples, he now prepared himself as he prayed
for strength. There in the Garden of Gethsemane,
he was led away to his inevitable crucifixion
where, betrayed, denied and despised, the whole of
humanity's darker side literally came down upon
his head. With acceptance of his fate complete, he
stoically faced it unto the end and, committed to
the fulfilling the scriptures, he appeared after
his crucifixion to his eleven gathered disciples
where he told them, "This is what is written: The
Messiah will suffer and rise from the dead on the
third day". He was back.
Reminding people of the fallibility of believing
that death is the end all and be all and that he
hadn't really gone anywhere, his 10th-dimensional
existence allows him even now to split into
infinite realities. The physical vehicle is only
one aspect that makes us who we are. Beyond that
is a world of wonder where Jesus Christ had
returned to being Sananda, a higher dimensional
example we can choose to make us who we are.
In love and light,
Russ and Karra.
