TOPICS: Some have Christhood but are not aware of it – some still need to develop Christhood, but can do so in this lifetime –
Question: I have recently finished reading and studying your book Save Yourself and found it to be most enlightening and inspiring. Thank you so much for bringing forth these teachings.
Page 299 – In the second paragraph, you say that the golden age will not come until a critical mass of people manifest individual Christhood. Then you go on to say that there are currently 10,000 people who have manifested a high degree of personal Christhood on inner levels and, further on, that there are millions of people who have manifested a high degree of Christhood. I do not understand the difference between these two groups of people. Would you please clarify this?
Quote from the book:
The golden age will not come until a critical mass of people manifest individual Christhood. As I say in The Christ Is Born in You, there are currently 10,000 people on planet earth who have manifested a high degree of personal Christhood at inner levels. Unfortunately, the vast majority of these people do not consciously recognize their inner attainment, and therefore they do not dare to acknowledge and express it. There are also millions of people who have manifested a high degree of Christhood. These people could quickly make tremendous progress if they would consciously acknowledge their potential and be willing to engage in the path of expanding their Christhood.
Such people can be found in every walk of life. Many of them are found in traditional Christianity. Many of them are found in other religions. Many of them belong to no particular religion or subscribe to scientific materialism. And a substantial portion of them are found in the New Age movement.
I need these people to quickly come to a conscious realization of who they are and why they are here. I am constantly trying to reach out to all of these people. However, I do believe that the most receptive should be the people in the New Age movement who see themselves as very progressive and spiritual people.
Answer from ascended master Jesus through Kim Michaels:
The difference is simply a matter of degrees. There are 10,000 people who have attained a very high degree of Christhood, yet most of them are not consciously aware of their spiritual attainment. Therefore, they cannot express that attainment in this world. When one of these people awakens to his or her spiritual identity and attainment, that person can very quickly begin to express that Christhood.
This attainment was achieved in prior lifetimes, yet because people normally forget their past lives when they are born, it is possible that a person can have high spiritual attainment without realizing it. This is reinforced if the person grows up in an environment that does not encourage people to express their spiritual attainment. This can happen if a person grows up with parents who are not spiritual or parents who belong to an orthodox religion, which states that “ordinary” people cannot have spiritual attainment. One example of this is a mainstream Christian religion that has turned me into an idol that no one can emulate.
There are millions of people on this planet who have attained a high degree of Christhood, but they are still some distance away from attaining full Christhood. If these people are awakened to their spiritual identity and attainment, they have the potential to make tremendous progress for the remainder of this lifetime. Many of them will, in fact, be able to achieve full Christhood in this lifetime. However, doing so will take a determined effort on their part. In other words, these people still have to work at it to develop Christhood. It is not simply a matter of realizing that they have already attained it and then beginning to express it, as is the case for the 10,000.
