Ascension- The End of
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 resinged 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 litterally 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 cruxifiction 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,
