Question: I thank God for finding you and I thank you for all the information you give us from this site. Dear Kim, you are a wonderful being and I want to send you all my admiration and respect. Dear Jesus, I know your voice because you are my shepherd. But I have a problem: how can I increase my love for you to be one with you in all my bodies, all my being? I feel I do not love you enough. Sometimes I call you and I imagine you are like the sun rays filling all the space between the atoms of me but I want to feel this not to imagine it. Thank you for everything and please, help me to feel you deep and clear.
Answer from ascended master Jesus through Kim Michaels:
My beloved heart, let me assure you that I already feel your love for me, and that it is quite sufficient.
It is important for people to understand that we are not requiring them to be perfect according to an outer or human standard. We look at an inner standard, namely the quality and purity of the heart. We also realize that every human being is currently at a certain level on the path that leads to oneness with God. And no one can do more than what they are capable of, given their level of attainment.
So in order to fulfill God’s requirements, you need to do the following:
- You need to do the best you can given your current understanding and level of consciousness.
- You need to constantly strive to increase your understanding and raise your level of consciousness.
If you fulfill these requirements, you are doing everything that God expects of you, and therefore your love is sufficient for today. You should allow yourself to feel at peace and not torture yourself with feelings of inadequacy. Remember my story about the poor widow who had little but gave all that she had. When you give all that you have, you should allow yourself to feel at peace with your gift.
What I encourage you to do is to use the tools we have given on our websites and in the books. I would encourage you to consider the need for spiritual protection and the transformation of negative energy. LINK As you continue to study spiritual teachings, purify the energies in your subconscious mind and resolve all imperfect beliefs about yourself and your relationship to God, you will naturally begin to feel that your love for me will increase. You will also get a clearer feeling for my Presence, which is always with you but which you do not always feel because of these blocks.
I would like to give you additional teachings on this. I have given a detailed explanation of the difference between human love and divine love, I encourage you to study that teaching. You will see that there is a fundamental difference between human love and divine love. Human love is often forced or willed, whereas divine love simply flows. So in order to love me fully, you will need to resolve the blocks in your psychology that keep you attached to expressing human love. You will need to simply let divine love flow through you.
Another important thought is that I do not need your love. Please do not misunderstand this statement. I very much appreciate the fact that so many Christians feel a deep love for me. Yet I would like to encourage such people to direct their love where it is needed the most. You see, when you envision me as a spiritual being, named Jesus Christ, you are envisioning me in my ascended form. It is this ascended form that is speaking to you on this website. My ascended form is a completely self-contained spiritual being. I am constantly bathed in the unlimited love of God that flows directly from the Father/Mother God through my consciousness. Therefore, my ascended form does not have a need to receive love from or be worshiped by human beings. However, I am more than this ascended form.
You will recall the statement that inasmuch as you have done it unto the least of these my little ones, you have done it unto me. The truth behind that statement is that the Christ consciousness is in everything that was ever created by God. Because I am one with the Christ consciousness, I am everywhere in the consciousness of God. So if you truly want to love me, then let your love flow through you toward those parts of life that have not yet fully accepted God’s love for them. In other words, direct your love for me toward those of your brothers and sisters who have not yet discovered that they are spiritual beings who are worthy of the unconditional love of God.
You see, the key to truly loving is to overcome human love and allow God’s love to flow through you. God’s love naturally flows from higher levels toward lower levels. God’s love naturally flows from God himself to all levels of creation. In reality God does not need to be loved or worshiped by human beings. God needs human beings to become conduits for his love so that his love can flow through them to other parts of life.
The problem on planet earth is that many people have descended into a state of consciousness where they cannot accept that they are worthy to receive God’s love. So their only chance of receiving that love is to receive it through another human being.
When you walk the spiritual path and begin to attain Christhood, you can become the open door for God’s love to flow to other people. You can express that love in a way that they can recognize and appreciate in their current state of consciousness.
So what I am saying here is that to fully love Jesus Christ, you must open your heart and mind and let divine love flow through you toward all parts of life. When you see me in everything and everyone and express your love for me no matter how imperfect the outer form might appear, then you will love me fully.
