TOPICS: Free will gives lifestream right to deny God – plausible deniability must be maintained – dualistic mind can deny any evidence – ego and power elite create system that is always right – science cannot prove anything beyond limitations of the instruments used – some are not ready for the path of Christhood – do not waste your time seeking to convert them –
Question: Why isn’t there one hundred percent irrefutable evidence that the soul exists after death, even though scientists and para-psychologists have been trying to prove it for years?
Answer from ascended master Jesus through Kim Michaels:
The reason is that planet earth is currently functioning as a planet that gives sanctuary to many lifestreams who are in a specific state of consciousness. They either desire to deny God’s existence or they desire to deny that God is right here with them. In other words, they want to continue to live based on the sense that they are separated from their source.
The Law of Free Will allows lifestreams to live out this illusion for a time, and that is why there must be plausible deniability. Therefore, no absolute proof will be given of God’s existence, the reality of the spiritual realm, the soul’s survival of physical death and many other such questions.
As long as people are in the consciousness of separation, they look at life through the filter of the duality consciousness, and thus there is no evidence that is one hundred percent irrefutable. When I walked the earth 2,000 years ago, I raised the dead, I healed the sick, I walked on water, I turned water into wine and still there were people who doubted that I was the Messiah.
The simple fact is that the dualistic mind can always question and doubt any evidence. Because the dualistic mind is relative, it seeks to create a framework that enables it to believe what it wants to believe, and consequently to disbelieve what it wants to disbelieve.
Even though I performed miracles, I could not convince the scribes, the Pharisees, the Sadducees, the lawyers and the temple priests of the Jewish religion. I can assure you that no matter what evidence could possibly be given, it would not convince the scribes, the Pharisees, the Sadducees, the lawyers and the temple priests of the scientific establishment or even orthodox Christianity.
You see, once a power elite has established itself in any field, it makes use of a principle that we might call the privilege of formulating the problem. When you conquer this privilege, and when you operate from the duality and relativity of the dualistic mind, you define a framework in which your basic beliefs cannot be disproved. The reason they cannot be disproved is that you have defined these beliefs in such a way that they always give you a way out. You can always refute any evidence that contradicts your basic beliefs, your paradigms, your mental holy cows.
For example, most orthodox Christians vehemently deny the reality of reincarnation, and consequently they adhere to the doctrine that the soul does not exist before the conception of the physical body. Well, if you do not believe that the soul exists before conception, you cannot give an irrefutable proof of the soul’s existence after death. If the soul can exist independently of the body, it can exist both before the conception of and after the death of the body.
Likewise, the scientific establishment has defined that anything that cannot be proven by instruments made of matter simply does not exist. The soul is a non-material entity, so how could the existence of the soul possibly be detected by an instrument made of matter? You might be aware that an ordinary microscope cannot detect a subatomic particle, no matter how powerful that microscope is. The simple reason is that the microscope makes use of visible light, and the wavelength of visible light makes it impossible to see a subatomic particle directly.
The instruments that have been developed by science up to this point simply cannot detect the soul. There are some instruments that can detect the energies of the soul, but so far they have not been accepted by mainstream science.
As I said, God simply does not want humankind to have irrefutable evidence about the existence of God or the spiritual realm. God wants this to be a matter of belief, because this requirement acts as a filter, filtering out those who are not willing to look beyond the dualistic mind and their own egos. These are precisely the people who cannot enter the kingdom of God anyway, because until you look beyond the dualistic mind and the human ego, you have no chance of attaining Christ consciousness. So what would be the point in proving the existence of heaven to people who have no chance of entering heaven?
One might say, “But if there was irrefutable proof, these people would be converted.” Unfortunately, this is not true, as my rejection by the religious authorities proves. There are numerous examples of how we of the ascended masters have given proof that has been accepted by many people but nevertheless rejected by some. The people who reject such proof are simply not ready for the path of Christhood.
If you read the scriptures, you will see that I often said that those who had ears had better hear. Having ears means to be open to the Living Truth that can be known only through direct experience in your heart. If you are not open, there is no outer proof that can open your mind and heart to the truth. And when you are not open to the truth, you can and will question and tear down any evidence that could possibly be given.
I have seen people who observed that I raised a man from the dead. These people knew and fully believed that the person was dead. They saw the person raised from the dead and walking around. Yet they were still not convinced that I had anything of value to teach them. And after a very short period of time, their dualistic minds had made them doubt, explain away or deny what they had observed with their senses. There is an old saying that seeing is believing, but it is only true for those with open minds and hearts. Those who are not open will quickly find ways to deny what they saw with their own eyes. That is why I said:
Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed. (John 20:29)
The brutal truth is that as a spiritual seeker you need to realize that there are some people who currently are not in a state of consciousness in which they can be awakened to the spiritual path, as I explain elsewhere. Therefore, you should be careful not to waste your time and energy on such people. As I said:
Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you. (Matthew 7:6)
This might sound brutal, but the reality is that life is too short to worry about helping those who will not help themselves. There are so many people who are open, and they are the ones I was talking about when I told my disciples to feed my sheep. The others you simply have to leave behind, as I said:
Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead. (Matthew 8:22)
