Question: Why is it important for us to know about the political system and the economy when the focus is really to look at yourself?
Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given at a conference in Holland in 2017.
As was said yesterday, my beloved, the process of walking the path is to a large degree a process of selecting out what you are not focusing your attention on. Even when you are an ascended master student, it does not mean that you have to pay attention to everything we say. There can be some of you who are in a phase in your lives where it is more important to focus on yourself, your own psychology and focus within. Then, you should do that if you feel that is important for you.
There are others that come to a level where you will actually not grow further by focusing on yourself because you need to now start expressing your Christhood. Expressing your Christhood means helping something, serving something, working on something that is beyond your personal interests. That is when you then can step up and in various ways you can help other people at a personal level.
There also comes a point where it is natural for you that you want to express your Christhood by doing something to change your nation or change the world. That is when you then start to make calls on this and the more you know about it, of course, the more precise calls you can make.
Also, just your own curiosity will want to know how the world works because you come to the point where you realize that most human beings on earth form their opinions based on very superficial knowledge of the situation. As you grow towards Christhood, you no longer want to have these superficial opinions so you want to study the political system or the economy so you can form a more informed opinion.
You can even come to a point where you are not really forming opinions but you are simply studying a topic so that you understand without necessarily forming what you normally call an opinion. You are simply just aware of how the system works.
If you feel it is important for you to focus on your personal growth, by all means do so. Then, when you come to the point where you feel the desire to serve some outer cause, some greater cause, then you can start making the calls on the political system.
We are, of course, a little bit in a dilemma because we do not have so many students and the more people make the calls, the greater of an effect it has. We are always grateful when people make the calls and really, even if you are working intentionally on yourself, it is not so difficult to find time once in a while to give an invocation for a more planetary issue.
