Question: If God’s love is unconditional and the ascended masters only want to set us free, then why are there so many conditions on the way to our ascension? For example, it is necessary to give invocations for many years to transform energy, although with more assistance of the ascended masters, we could do this much faster. We are forced to take certain lessons for a long time and only in physical incarnation, which is quite difficult. At the same time, the current messenger does not provide personal counseling as Jesus used to do. Why are there so many restrictions and rules that are presented as a desire to provide us with some kind of work, setting ourselves free from negative images and decisions of the past, without which we might end up getting bored here on this planet? Why are there so many restrictions and requirements that are presented as a manifestation of the free will and desires of spiritual people in the incarnation, which the ascended masters, out of respect to free will, have to comply with?
Answer from the ascended master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2021 Webinar for Russia – Overcoming the consciousness of Superiority and the Sense of Being Unwhole, Traumatized and Focused Outside Oneself.
Well, my beloved, if you are willing to take an honest look at the question and the mindset from which it is asked, then you have to say that this is a person who has not spent a lot of time studying our teachings, at least not as they were given in this dispensation. You have not truly studied what we have said about the spiritual path because what we have said is that all of the conditions that you have to fulfill in order to qualify for your ascension were created by yourself.
The energies that you have misqualified in many past lifetimes are the energies you need to transform by giving rosaries and invocations and decrees. The psychological selves that you have created as a result of choices you made in past lifetimes are the ones that you have to come to see and resolve in order for you to be free.
The reality of free will is simply that you can compare this to a maze: There is an entrance to the maze, and then, there are many twists and turns, but you are choosing whether to turn this way or that way every time you come to a fork in the road. This means that if you look at yourself from above, you can see that you have followed a certain path through the maze from your starting point to where you are now. How will you get back? By going back and reversing the decisions you made, tracing your steps back to the purity with which you descended.
How would you gain anything from us doing the work for you, setting you free from the misqualified energies? How could we possibly resolve the selves that you have created when they were created, made by your decisions and can only be uncreated by your decisions?
Then, of course, you can step even further back and say: “What is the purpose of life?”
The purpose of life is that you exercise your free will. You make decisions, you see the consequences of those decisions as physical circumstances or as emotional, mental and identity conditions in your three higher bodies, and you learn from that. But the purpose of life is not that you come to earth, make karma, the ascended masters take away that karma and then, you go back. The purpose of life is that you learn from making decisions, and seeing the results of your decisions, evaluating it, so you can raise your consciousness and make more aware decisions. Only you can do this.
It is not the purpose of life to take you to earth and take you back to heaven. The purpose of life is your growth. You grow through your own decisions, through your own observations, through your own conclusions, through your own epiphanies, whereby you raise your consciousness.
This is how you grow. It cannot be done mechanically. It cannot be done for you. We cannot do it for you. We can only help you do things for yourself, but you must be willing to do it.
