An Article by Doug Esse
The following is an email exchange between Jim McCarty of L/L Research (and the “scribe” in the Law of One material) and myself. He had some questions about what seems to be negatively-influenced words from Jesus.
I do not believe that the Jesus’ words were Orion-influenced at all but I do believe that they were phrased in such a way as to make sense to people of his religion, living at his time, in his culture. The bottom line is that Jesus was a master teacher of transformation and his mission was that of the Confederation: to help positive humans polarize more to harvestable levels by re-attaching to positive path through heart activation. This is summed up in the Two Great Commandments, which Jesus gave to his people. See below to see how our dialog unfolds.
Great to hear from you again. And great also to be able to read your latest essay/channeling.
I also wanted to ask you if you have ever read any of Carla’s channeling of the Holy Spirit? To me they are the most inspiring channelings I have ever heard. I copied the one from my Camelot Journal entry from today and will paste it below for your enjoyment. [Here is a link to this channeling source: https://llresearch.org/library/a_book_of_days_pdf/a_book_of_days.aspx%5D
I enjoyed what you had to say about Jesus’s and the Confederation’s mission regarding Earth being tailored to fit the needs of this “motley crew” that has had such trouble making the harvest to the fourth density, not only on this planet but others as well. This class of repeaters certainly could benefit from some special attention.
But I have been wanting to ask you for some time as to some of the seemingly negative comments that Jesus makes that do not fit into the Law of One at all such as those who do not believe in the good news that Jesus was preaching will be cast into the outer darkness and suffer weeping and gnashing of teeth as is described in Matthew 8:12, 13:41-42, and 24: 44-51. I know that there is a lot of negative stuff in the Old Testament dealing with the Orion Yahweh and his “vengeance is mine saith the Lord” stuff, but I thought that the New Testament would/should be free of that negativity as Jesus realized how the Orion group had been responsible for most of the negativity in the Old Testament, and he came to make a New Covenant of Love. And I have found so many other instances of Jesus’s words just not jiving with the Law of One.
Do you think that Empress Theodora not only removed references to reincarnation from the Bible but also put these negative concepts in Jesus’s mouth? Or someone else?
Jesus as a master teacher was all about teaching us transformation. Unfortunately, human consciousness being dualistic did not understand Jesus’ teachings very well and secondly, our modern interpretations of many of Jesus’ sayings are flat out wrong because we have interpreted them by our mindset, not his historical context.
Matthew 8: 11 I say to you that many will come from the east and the west, and will take their places at the feast with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven. 12 But the subjects of the kingdom will be thrown outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”
First, when Jesus is talking about being thrown outside, into the darkness, and all the weeping and gnashing of teeth, he is referring to being put outside the walls of Jerusalem. He is referring to the idea that a prophet is not accepted by his/her own people, yet many people from outside the tribe, will see the prophet’s message as enlightening. Thus, his words are a critique about religious/political systems that are narrow minded and overly structured to the point that they have lost the ability to see truth and love.
Jesus’ primary mission was to reform his own religion, which as we know from Ra, had been besieged by the mindset of elitism (ref 24.6). As I allude to in my article that you read, Jesus was providing a corrective to Judaism to realign with [the Confederation] Yahweh’s original intentions.
Secondly, from the lens of the Law of One, we can add an eschatological perspective to Jesus’ words. When the Harvest happens, who goes to 4th and who stays in 3rd (where there is wailing and gnashing of teeth)? Jesus is again critiquing the tribal mentality of his own religion where they believe they are the only path to God if they follow the Mosaic laws (which as we know, were inspired by Orion (ref 16.18).
He’s basically saying, “Look, just because you follow the tenets of your laws exactly and believe in your righteousness because of your religion, doesn’t mean squat. The real issue is if you can learn to open your heart to God and neighbor.”
In fact, Jesus provides clear evidence of his mission to reform his religion when he said that he nuances the whole Ten Commandments into Two Commandments which are about loving God with all of our hearts and loving our neighbor as yourself (Matthew 22-37-40) And furthermore, “neighbor” is even defined as an enemy!! (The Good Samaritan, Luke 10:25-37).
These Two Commandments from Jesus are truly the pathway to harvestability to fourth, right!? In Matthew 8:11-12, Jesus it telling the Jews (his own religion) that even those whom they consider the worst enemies (the Roman rulers and occupiers), will be able to enter the Kingdom of God (4th density) when they have faith (opening of 6th chakra into intelligent energy, ref Law of One 49.6).
Matthew 13: 40 “As the weeds are pulled up and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of the age. 41 The Son of Man will send out his angels, and they will weed out of his kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil. 42 They will throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 43 Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Whoever has ears, let them hear.
As to Matthew 13:40-43, there are two main interpretations that make sense to me (and by the way, there are always layers of meaning with each verse and we should approach any scripture of any religion with the ability to see multiple interpretations simultaneously).
The first is that on an individual level, the weeds that are pulled up and burned in the fire refer to are blockages inside of us that keep us from activating the heart (to harvestable to fourth density levels). The end of an age refers to when a person dies. Blockages in our lower chakras uphold the ethos of separation which is endemic in 3rd density. These blockages, if in the 2nd chakra, will result is us not accepting ourselves and finding ourselves inferior or when we call ourselves “idiot,” and “stupid,” or “I’m the best…” etc.
If the blockages are in the 3rd chakra, this will result in a life of projecting onto others our own shadows and scapegoating them. Either way, the blockages reinforce 3rd density thoughtforms that keep people entrapped in third density.
But what happens when we unblock these energy centers? How do we do this? Usually, any kind of transformation that leads to heart activation will require great suffering and great love.
Great suffering means that we come to a point in our lives where we admit that we are powerless to change something about ourselves and we surrender into a large Wholeness which heals us. But the surrendering is always painful, it’s the Dark Night of the Soul spoken about in many spiritual traditions. This Dark Night is always a place where we “wail and gnash our teeth.” What is burned up in the furnace? Our former operating system of seeing the world which gets fried by the process of transformation. This process of transformation is called “metanoia,” and it means, “expanding our heart/mind,” which is another way to say that we activate our heart chakras. In fact, whenever you see “convert” or “repent” in the Bible, they are using the Greek word, “metanoia.”
Great love means that we encounter unconditional love from another or from God so that we are inspired to live from a more humble and less bellicose place. That place would be the seat of the heart.
And, finally, what happens when a person opens up the lower chakra triad enough to activate the heart? They shine and are ready for the “kingdom of their Father,” or fourth density.
These verses can also be understood at the collective level, too. The “Son of Man,” is a phrase that would mean today, “The Archetypal Human,” or “Whole Human, fully complete and enlightened.” A “Son of Man” person would be one who embodies fourth density consciousness, or Christ Consciousness. Christ Consciousness is another way to describe what RA calls the fourth-density green-ray energy that is bathing our planet now. So when Jesus says, “The Son of Man will send out his angels, and they will weed out of his kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil,” he is saying, in effect:
“When the earth moves into 4th density consciousness, many of you humans will not be ready to receive this kind of love/light [read: “send out his angels”] because you are not polarized enough. So, you’ll have to go back into third-density consciousness and once again experience life where the veil of forgetting is in place. Life in 3rd density is difficult, crazy intense, and it feels like being cast out.”
Then, Jesus, says, in effect:
“But for those of you who can respond to the new cosmic green ray love, your own inner light will resonate with the love/light of fourth density and you’ll be harvestable to fourth density… the kingdom of the Father. So… listen up people do you all understand what I’m saying?”
Matthew 24: 44-51: 44 So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him. 45 “Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom the master has put in charge of the servants in his household to give them their food at the proper time? 46 It will be good for that servant whose master finds him doing so when he returns. 47 Truly I tell you, he will put him in charge of all his possessions. 48 But suppose that servant is wicked and says to himself, ‘My master is staying away a long time,’ 49 and he then begins to beat his fellow servants and to eat and drink with drunkards. 50 The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. 51 He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Your last verse speaks to the cosmic Law of Responsibility which, as we know from Ra, kicks into gear when a person has incarnated enough times to grasp some of the lessons of the Law of One and thus karma gains traction to help with the learn/teaching throughout the rest of the third density experience (ref 22.5).
When the Law of Responsibility is not heeded, a person will not polarize to harvestable levels and there are consequences (ie shorter life-span, ref 22.5). When cosmic green-ray energy heralds the coming of fourth density (read: the Master returning), the love/light of fourth density will expose those areas in a person where they are clearly blocked (read: cut to pieces). Where do those nonpolarized people go? They go back to 3rd density with all of the other people who professed to love God and neighbor but their actions revealed otherwise (read: hypocrites).
So from my perspective, Jesus’ great mission was to effectuate and accelerate the Confederation’s mission to help people harvest to fourth density. Jesus attempted to reconcile his people with God, and build upon the path given by the Confederation Yahweh without all of the genetic manipulation the latter performed. It seems that by then, the Confederation (including Yahweh) learned that manipulating the body/mind complex of humans and making them superior does not work. It just creates elitism and gives Orion even more inroads into our planetary consciousness. Through Jesus, the Confederation, was interested in helping transform heart/minds (via metanoia).
Jesus’ language may seem harsh to us but it was strong so that it could get through to the people of his time but it was worded in such a way as to preserve free will and the Law of Confusion (ref Law of One 73.13)
As to Empress Theodora removing Jesus’ teachings on reincarnation or putting negative words in Jesus’ mouth, I don’t think that the latter is true. But did she remove the words on reincarnation? Likely not. The Cannon of the Bible as we know it was brought together in 382 by the Council of Rome. Empress Theodora lived several hundred years afterwards. So if anything of Jesus’ teachings were taken out, it would have been way before her.
Finally, I don’t hold rancor against those verses taken out, like most who study esoterica do. Given the historical context at the time, the cultures that espoused reincarnation were not viewed as liberating but rather problematic. A belief in reincarnation can foster spiritual laziness because I won’t have to work hard (polarize) if I know that I am just going to keep returning. But if I think that this life is the only life I’ve got, then all of sudden, everything is more sacred and urgent. Furthermore, we’ve had cultures in the world that have always believed in reincarnation, but is the world more positive today because of their beliefs? No. In fact, in India, their own distortions of reincarnation resulted in a caste system which could easily be exploited by Orion given that it sets up a pretty structured hierarchy with the powerful up top and the “undesirables” at the bottom.
From A Book of Days, channeled by Carla L. Rueckert:
Hope And The Experience Of Love
I am known as the Holy Spirit. I greet you in the full consciousness of the love and the creative energy of Jesus the Christ.
As that active energy called love invisibly swirls and moves throughout each atom of creation, opportunities are constantly being given for that which is of a less spiritual nature to take on the vibrations of a spiritualized love. Thus does the spirit bring out the song in stone, the clapping of hands of the trees, and the rejoicing of the mountains.
Thus also the spirit of the Holy One moves invisibly and energetically within the heart of humankind, creating seemingly from nothing a strong and lasting faith. The seeker who wishes to experience the movement of the active principle of love need bring to the encounter with that transformative energy nothing but a heart full of hope.
Not all encounters with new life are as dramatic as Paul’s vision upon the road to Damascus. May you be willing to support within yourself those promptings of energetic love which whisper from deep within your heart. May you hope in the spirit.
We offer you the peace of this ever-fulfilled desire, now and ever. Amen.
