Question: Is the Dalai Lama the last embodiment of the Lama, or is he going to be the next one who will embody as the Dalai Lama?
Answer from Ascended Master MORE through Kim Michaels (July 2013):
The tradition will continue, partly because the Tibetan people are not ready, or willing, to give it up. Yet, as the current Dalai Lama, has expressed, he would like to see a shift in the Tibetan people.
Yet, it is not likely that the people will be willing to take the step up in consciousness that the Dalai Lama has taken and demonstrated to his people. They are still so bound by tradition that even if the lifestream that is the current Dalai Lama does not embody in the Tibetan race, they will simply “discover” another incarnation that they believe is the right one.
There is no unbroken linearity of one lifestream having embodied throughout the entire history of Tibet. There has been shifts several times, and there is likely to be so again.
Everything is subject to free will. Thus, the current Dalai Lama has expressed a desire to reincarnate as a women in the West in his next lifetime. This is of course his right to decide, but I do want to say that the current Dalai Lama has qualified for his ascension.
