Question: Iceland ranks first in the world in gender equality. Does Iceland have a high level of collective consciousness that is above other Scandinavian countries or nations?
Answer from the Ascended Master Jesus through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2020 Webinar – Increasing Your Christ Discernment.
Well, first of all, you have to be careful about not setting up a scale and saying this country is higher than the others, and therefore it is better or so forth and so on. It is, of course, clear that there are some countries that are higher than others. But in terms of Iceland, in certain respects, it has an advanced level of consciousness.
But as you can see, from the financial bubble that was created in Iceland, there is also some serious limitations in the collective consciousness. There is a dream of some unrealistic form of economy where you do not have to make an effort, you do not have to multiply the talents. And this is what has caused the nation to go into this downward economic spiral.
And you saw that the other Scandinavian countries avoided this, because they have actually transcended that level of consciousness. And so, I would not say that Iceland is higher than the other Scandinavian countries in general. But I do not wish to create a scale here and saying this country is higher than that country, and so on.
All of the Scandinavian countries are at a fairly high level, as are many of the other countries in Northern Europe, Canada, New Zealand, South Korea, Australia, at least parts of Australia, and parts of the United States, but not the United States in general.
So their are, of course, what we have called the modern democracies, who are the most evolved countries on earth. And it is not really necessary to go into some kind of absolute linear scale that says, this is the highest country and this is number two, and so on.
