Question: What is the difference between the course to Christhood and the path to the mastery of the seven rays? The course to Christhood was given first, so it would seem that from the perspective of progressive revelation the course to Christhood should be studied first by new students. Is this so?
Answer from the Ascended Master Jesus through Kim Michaels. This answer was given at a conference in Estonia in 2018.
No my beloved, it isn’t so. As we have explained, there are 144 levels of consciousness. The path to self-mastery is given to take you from the 48th to the 96th level. Therefore for new students we recommend that they start with this unless they have a strong intuitive sense that they should start with the Christhood course. I gave the Christhood course because there were a certain number of people who were ready for it but most people are not ready for it and would benefit from going through the seven-ray course first. When you reach the 96th level, you start with what we would call the Christhood initiations and that is when you can benefit from the Christhood course.
Progressive revelation doesn’t necessarily mean that it is always a linear way, that the lowest teaching is given first or that a teaching for new students is given first. It is a much more complex equation that we operate with. You will also see (in a sense) that I started out with this messenger giving teachings on myself and Christhood and Christ consciousness and Christianity because I was aiming in the beginning at reaching out to Christians. So an outcome of this effort was the Christhood course. Then we later broadened it to reach a much broader segment of people and that is when we came up with the course on the mastery of the seven rays.
