Question: I think I have a misperception with regard to what it means to “go global.” So what I think it means is that you focus on some condition on the planet, you move past what gets triggered in you when you look at that condition. Maybe you recognize that the world is not outside you, that the world is in your heart, so sort of oneness thing. And then you develop a non-attachment so that you can be the open door for love to flow. Is that sort of what going global means? The question is, “What does going global mean?”
This answer was given by the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels at a conference in Holland, 2016.
We have said many times that there comes a point on the spiritual path where you cannot grow further by focusing on your own growth, your own development, resolving your psychology, resolving your personal issues, even your health issues. From that point on, you need to go beyond the focus on yourself, and this is really the meaning of going global.
We see sometimes, in fact many times, that spiritual people are suddenly awakened to the existence of the spiritual path. After going through some initial period, they might find a spiritual teaching, a spiritual organization, and they might start exercising some kind of practice that may actually be aimed at doing something for the planet.
But the people do not quite lock in to this. They are doing the practice even in a sort of mechanical way, but they still become more and more focused on certain problems and issues in their own lives. They become actually self-absorbed, and they are just using the outer teaching sort of as a way to make them feel that they are doing what they need to be doing for the world, they are doing what they need to be doing to secure their ascension, but most of their attention is focused on themselves. This is what, in my initial dictation for this conference, I called the focus on petty problems that do not help you grow, that do not help the world grow.
Going global is just a way to say that you shift away from the focus on self because you have depersonalized your life to the point where you realize that many of your personal issues and concerns are not actually important to you anymore. It ties in with what I said − and we have said, many of us − that there are certain problems that either have no solution or cannot be solved by human means.
There comes a point where you have resolved enough of your psychology − you have grown enough on the path − so that the problems that are remaining are problems that you cannot solve. You cannot do anything about them, you can only transcend them, which means walking away from them.
How do you walk away from them? In the beginning it is difficult for people to let go, so therefore, an interim stage is to shift your attention on something else, a bigger problem, a problem that relates to more people. This then opens up for the possibility that you can receive help from above, with the multiplication from us that can bring more healing.
Eventually, of course, there comes a point where you are ready to simply look at yourself and let go of certain concerns and issues. You can just let it go and realize that this is no longer important to you, because you are no longer living for any personal purpose. You are living for the purpose of serving something beyond yourself, whether it be other people, or a cause, or the ascended masters.
