Studying Confucianism

Question: Is Confucianism worth learning to improve ourselves to better levels or is it evil, from a fallen being?


Answer from the Ascended Master Confucius through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2021 Webinar – Moving Toward Golden Age Relationships.

Well, I am not a fallen being, I never was and so it did not come from the fallen being. I was in embodiment at the time I gave the teaching, I had reached a reasonably high level of awareness, but by no means the highest that can be attained on earth. But I was able to receive some ideas from the ascended realm, and encapsulate them into the outer teaching of Confucianism.

However, what you have to realize is that, as all teachings must be, it was given in a certain context, for a certain culture, for certain people, for a certain time. Naturally, it has timeless elements, timeless principles, but it is not something I recommend that you study today, when you have the ascended master teachings. There may be a few people who will find that they need to study it for a time in order to familiarize themselves with it, but I will not give a general recommendation that all spiritual students should study it.

It was very much given for a certain time, and it was very much given to change outer behavior, not so much the deeper psychology because it was not possible at the time. It should also be said that it was very much given from a certain viewpoint that it explained the relationship between the state and the citizens and how the citizens should behave to uphold the state as an orderly, functioning state. But of course, what you had at that time was by no means a democracy and so it is not really applicable for a modern democracy.

You could say that, to some degree, Confucianism has been used by the fallen beings to justify a state where they are in control. And this is a valid point. But it does not mean that the teaching itself does not have timeless elements or valid elements. Anything that we can possibly give, the fallen beings will attempt to pervert it. And of course, some people will want to pervert it because it gives them an advantage. It solidifies the ruling elite’s position and makes the people subservient to the elite, for example.
