Samuel: Hello, dears.

Hello, Samuel.

S: So how are you feeling?


S: Aye. Did you drag yourself out of your sick bed to make it? Feel good? Aye.

Important night tonight. I’m going to talk tonight about how to ensure you are perfectly human. And how to ensure you’re not. And because it is somewhat moving into that season, I’m going to use the life—well, perhaps not exactly the life, more the ending few moments—of Christ Jesus’ experience here on the planet as the examples of how to allow your humanity and how to allow your divinity to function in the world. And particularly while I’m speaking, you might be wanting to think about all of those times you have said, Samiel how is it I know what it is I should be doing, and how it is I should be doing it? Because ultimately the bottom line of the answer is, in your divinity you’re doing it, in your humanity you’re waiting on it.

I want to move quickly with this tonight, because the points are so easy, simple, that I would rather you had the opportunity to let it move through than for me to try to string together all of the words that are going to make it float the boat.

Let’s make this a working of the light. [Candle is lit.] That’s how angels work, you know. They have what’s needed at the moment.

Thank you, love. Oh, stop showing off. Thank you, love. Ah, you know those salamanders.

All right, the first thing I want to ask is, Why is it I would be using the Christ Jesus for the examples? Why? First, let’s speak calendar; what is it there?


S: Aye, you’re getting close to that Easter time. Aye. And all of the holidays that surround that time. Sure, that’s a good one. But why particularly that direction?

Because he was required to live in human form and show that there was also a spark of divinity in us, and how to live that, and how to stay . . . he worked a lot with the people, and yet also had to work beyond his own human issues.

S: Because divinity in form was here as an example, and that’s true. Frank.

He’s probably the best, for the Western society, the most universally known example of someone in form living at their highest potential.

S: All right. That works. Paula.

Because you’re teaching us about Christ Consciousness right now, and that’s why we have […].

S: And that’s true, although actually where I’m going with Christ Consciousness has very little to do with the life of Jesus, truly. But yes, there is a flow that can be found here.

Well, He’s just a really good role model.

S: Absolutely. All right. Let me try this question just a little bit differently. What was He for you, for this time. For this time. How about that?

He was the avatar of the Piscean Age.

S: Sure. Sure. The avatar, which means? Can anybody translate before it gets too . . . ?



S: All of that can work. That which was here to bring about a transition in the frequency of energy by which mass consciousness functioned. Avataric energy. The highest level of spirit cloaked in form. Sounds slightly familiar, doesn’t it? Touching a few places here and there.

Because for this particular time . . . let me back up and change that sentence a bit, all right? For the Piscean Age—this particular past two thousand and so years, give or take ten minutes—the energy that has been sent to this planet as a means of helping to bring about the great change has been through the personage of Jesus, through the work of Christ. Did you get that? And using that life as an example is something that many of you in this room certainly had, because Western society has a very strong connection into Christianity as a foundation of primary religious thought. And there’s mouthfuls of things not being said there. Allowing yourself to take a look at what went on in that life, allowing yourself to have an understanding of how that information has been preserved for you, allows a perspective that might be exactly what you’re needing tonight.

Now, usually, when you’re going to tell a life story what you do is you begin with “Once upon a time a child was born,” but in this particular case, certainly to bring across the point that I’m wanting to bring to you, it comes instead with “Once upon a time there was a great trial.” Kangaroo court. Kangaroo court—now that’s an interesting thought, isn’t it? A mockery indeed it could be said. And this trial was, whether or not the life of Jesus of Nazareth, the son of the carpenter Joseph, would be allowed to continue in his radical ways

Now, this is where I want this story to begin, all right, right before this trial, but I’m taking you to that point in life, what you would think of, perhaps, as the end of it. I want first to go to how to be human. And to do that what I’m going to do is take you to the very people who specifically chose to follow that one, that light. I’m going to take you to those who had said they would give their very lives for him, to those who had a vision of what could be, because I believe that in your life you can relate to those individuals. Those who were, indeed, the—somebody say the word for me—so I can remember it.


S: Disciples. Disciples. I always want to say dis-apples. Doesn’t quite fit. First time I said that, I had several people in the room just stare at me. Dis-apples? What’s that? Aye. Made sense to me.

Those who said they were the disciples, the students, of that great teacher, the friends of that great love, who walked with Jesus.

Over the last couple of years, three years, they had been experiencing probably the time of their life, probably the time of their life, seeing a radical change in thought come their way. They heard teachings that made it make sense for them even though they were not the teachings that they had grown up with. They weren’t quite the teachings that they felt safe with. Sometimes that’s the fun part of it, though. But they recognized a truth that went beyond what their neighbors would say, and what their families would say. They recognized a love, and indeed in the writing afterwards, that is a remarkable part of the teachings that has absolutely stayed. Those men and women, do not be fooled, were touched by the love, because they all spoke of it.

It was a time of coming into themselves, and many of you can relate to that kind of awakening in which, in your life, you become aware, and it does not have to be a teacher, because, indeed, as you awaken, as you grow, and as you change, you become more adept at gaining your teacher in everything you see and do. The awakening of your spiritual awareness, your ability to see and give love at levels never before experienced. The recognizing truth as it touches within you, even if it’s not exactly the truth that everyone else you know goes for. You can relate to that group. So I want to talk to you a bit about what happened to them.

Let’s start their story at that famous Last Supper. Now you know what they were really doing there was partying. They were coming together, the large group of them. They had rented their own hall, they had the best of the foods brought out, and they were just having a good time. Planning what was coming next, watching everything that was going, probably had their own little conversations going with each other. Having a good old time. Slowly they watched one depart, then another, then another, and they realized that the party’s breaking up. Do you think they knew that the end was near? We’re talking individuals who have dedicated their life to the avataric energy of this full age. They were there, touching that magic every day. Do you think they got in their “five-minute sitting” that this is the last time we’re going to ever come together like this? Why not? Probably two very human reasons why. The first one is, it never occurred to them that things were going to go anything differently than the way it always does, that change would happen, ever. In fact, in a very human sort of response, in all likelihood they had their own expectations of what it was going to do.

When Jesus finally got up off of his sacred duff and took over and made everything all right for us all, “Well, of course, I’m his best friend so I’ll be the first person in charge.” “No, no, no, you won’t; I will be.” “Well, I’m his best friend.” “No, I’m his best friend.” They had their own vision of how everything was going to work out, and as a result, the now passed them by. And another reason was that not a one of them asked him.

All right, look, you are spending your life dedicated to the vision of this one whom you recognize as the next great answer. You have been there for the most incredible miracles, haven’t you? And you forget to do the simple stuff, such as [ask yourself], Is everything going all right? How are things flowing? What is your vision of this vision? If they had been able to move out of themselves and their version, they might have been able to be prepared, but it’s a very human thing to not take advantage of the wisdom that is available, especially if it interferes with the expectations you’ve carefully cultivated. So right there, that starts this interesting journey.

If you’re following along in the most typical of stories, what is the next sort of thing that happens in this pathway?


S: Conflict. Yes. Can you be a bit more specific there?

Well, I was going to say there would be more like a crisis would happen. There would be a tension that would build.

S: All right. How would this be? One of your very best friends goes out and turns you over to cops.

I would think one would feel a sense of betrayal.

S: Yes, indeed, it is very much betrayal. That’s a very human thing. You have disappointed me. I am going to go tell somebody something. And did.

Now, some of you may know that I actually count Judas as one of the prime players in this great drama. He gets the short shrift quite often, but think about it for a moment. If he had not been willing to be the low man on the totem pole, it might have been a lot harder for Christ to do what He came to do. But nonetheless, the point that I’m making here right now is what happened. A disappointed follower went and got the religious authorities to take a very big step, to call out the civil authorities. And, indeed, how many times in your own life have you had a version of that happen to you? Or maybe even by you. It’s one of the more stupid human tricks.

While that was going on, Jesus went to the garden to pray. Now what you might want to see here is that he asked [the disciples] to go with him, to stand guard, to watch, that the first thing that happened there is that several of those who were so dedicated to him—temple guards extraordinaire—didn’t get, “Stand watch while I pray.” Why would that be? Darn. Missed another opportunity to find out what was going to happen. But, nonetheless, absolutely assured him, “Of course I’ll do that. I’ll watch over you. Go ahead. Go talk. Enjoy your walk now. Go on. Go on with you.” And what happened? Well, they were tired. It had been a very busy few days. They had just started a new job, just gotten over the flu, had a lot of stress going on in their lives, or many, many other excuses.

But instead of following through with the promise that had been made, they dropped the watch. Fell asleep. And were awakened by what?


S: Aye. An incredibly awakening event. Typically human, I guarantee it. Do not worry about a thing. I will take care of things. Do not worry. It’s in my hands. Oops. Well, there’s reasons for that: I was so tired. I’m really sorry. I’ve not been myself lately. Or maybe too much yourself lately. And fell asleep. And so often in the life of mass consciousness, and even in the lives of those who are awake and functioning, you fall asleep and it takes a crisis to wake you up and get you going. It may not be a troop of soldiers stomping their way in front of you, but crisis nonetheless that wakes you up and gets you going. That’s perfectly human.

And probably one of the best ones comes right after that. The head of the guard comes up to this fellow who looks like he’s sleeping something off, and says, “Here, there! You! I’m looking for that terrifically outrageous rabble-rouser, Jesus. Do you know him?” And recognizing a cue, the perfectly human being chooses to make things easier for himself. To protect. To survive, in order to be able to serve tomorrow, of course. There’s always a good reason. And says, “Who? Never heard of him.”

Or there’s another response. “Have you seen him? Have you heard of him?” “I have. Just what is it you’re going to do? You better not hurt him or I’ll hurt you first,” and gets violent. I’m going to protect these teachings of love with my sword. That’s perfectly human as well. You’re frightened, you do not know what to do. You’re torn. What is right? And so immediately, as is so often the case with human nature, you revert back to that instinctual survival mechanism. Protect with a vengeance.

Christ Jesus came into this world with a message that said love them. Keep showing cheek is not the same message.

And there’s more. For instance, as he was led away, and eventually indeed sentenced to die by crucifixion, which was another form of stupid human trick, it’s made mention of the one who, being stronger, chose to take up the cross and try to carry it a part of the way, because compassion is also perfectly human. And the ability to take action on that compassion is so rare that it was worthy of mention that one who . . .

Simon of […]

S: Aye. Went forth from the crowd and said, “Let me help with this burden.” Compassion and wise action are indeed perfectly human, but are rare, because too often they’re only given in response to What will I get from it? How will this help me? How would you want to go out in history? The one who fell asleep at the watch or the one who said, Let me help, because the gift of humanity is that you have that choice. Your free will gives you that choice to prefer not to know what’s going on, to act by instinct, to function with expectation, to not make use of what’s available. Or to choose to act in love, because it is there.

Jesus was crucified, and it is reported that a few of his disciples got up the guts to watch him die. They had obligations to family, and the tradition of the time was that once death occurred, the family would take the body and so there was always those who were holding vigil. Those who were stuck with custom and following the way things are done in order to make sure things were proper.

And I’m going to make mention of one more rare and powerful act. Jesus was buried indeed in a borrowed tomb, but a tomb that belonged to one who spontaneously saw a need, and gave it away. The reason, I believe, history calls him a rich man is because he was willing to give of what he had. What was needed at that moment was a place for which all of history could be changed. And there was one willing to step in and say, I have something that might work.

When humans are functioning at their highest level, that is very much a signal. That willingness to give what is needed at the moment—it gets better in a moment—so this is how to be perfectly human, following the steps of those who probably had the chance many of you wish you had to walk with Jesus. How different would it have been for you? Well, look at your life now. How different is it now? When those same sorts of situations come into your life, when you’re in the middle of the party, when you’re in the middle of crisis, aye, when your very best friend has died, how is it for you?

Let me tell you now how it is for the divine. The first thing that I want you to be aware of is that Jesus did know. And for those who had ears, they could hear, as he was wont to say. “He who has ears, listen to this, because I’m telling you a lot more than what these words are about. Pay attention here. This is important. My days are numbered,” he said. “I will not be with you for long. In fact, that entry that we had a couple of days ago, it’s the last one.”

I’m going to back up just a minute to remind you of what Christ Jesus was about. Cloaked in flesh, born of a human woman, well, that’s only been in agreement lately. Right. And fully aware of his divine nature. Therefore, capable of using it. Energy that is specifically given at such a high frequency that it is called God’s son. Yes, indeed, all of those New Age minds are sending to me immediately, Well, he said we’re all sons of God. Thank you very much. Those reminders are helpful. But, all right then, let’s go there. So you’re right, he did say, “That which I do you can do more so also.” That “I am here to bring forth a new covenant, a new version of what this religiosity is all about. I am here to awaken in you that which is mine that my Father, that holds me in his hand, will be holding you as well, because I hold you in my hand.” Do you know what that’s saying, even without the incredibly outrageous translations that have come about, in such words? He’s saying right out, “you’re mine. You are what I am. And I and my father are one. You have a place with me forever.” Powerful statements.

So let’s talk about that godness cloaked in form. He knows the end is near, so what does he do? He throws a party. Now, why is it that that’s not recognized as a powerfully important statement? The desire is to come together with those whom you have loved, not to have the final statement. Not to have, This is what I want you to get down for the rest of the world forever. Here’s what I haven’t been able to teach you thus far. Let’s get rolling now. This is the last great teaching. Here it comes.

Or maybe it was, my friends, because you know how the Gods are. They see things differently. What’s important can easily be misconstrued, maybe even missed. Believe me, my darlings, it’s very, very true that saying, Who said this? It’s not the Gods in the road you need to worry about, it’s the ones hiding in the bushes. It’s easy to miss the greatest power, because it shows up in the little things. Jesus’ last great work with his disciples was to have a potluck. To come together and commune. To be the perfect host. Let us come together in celebration. That’s a godly thing to do.

After the celebration, watching one of his key players go out, he says, “You know what I’d like to do right now? I want to go take a walk in the garden.” There is no recorded statement that says the disciples were shocked. Obviously this was something Jesus was wont to do. I want to take a walk in the garden, and I’m going to pray. Are you known for that, by any chance? For loving to get out in the world and just see its beauty through your finger tips. Smell its heady scents through your eyes. Hear it with your heart. And pray. I know, all of the stories now have him going off into the garden and pictures have him kneeling down, sort of like this, praying like you do half the time.


S: Indeed. […] He walked through that garden and smelled the flowers, and recognized His Father in the flowers. And he kicked at the rocks, and he recognized his Father in the rocks. He saw God in the garden, because he saw God, his father, in the flowers. And the garden, because he saw God in every moment. Do you think He needed to set himself apart, and probably . . . something like that, and then come out with the words that he had come up with before? Look, you want to know how to pray? This is it. And so he did the same thing. “Great Father”? No, he said, “Look, we’ve got to talk. There’s a lot going on right now. If it’s possible for the way this is coming about to change, that would be nice, but whatever it is that works for the highest good of all involved to bring about the completion of this plan, I’m for it.”

That is what he said, you know. It was a relationship, an awareness, a clear acceptance of the divine communion that was available to him and through him, that it was a matter of going out into the world and walking the pathways, and recognizing—that’s what the Gods do, they recognize—the divine. And then talk to an old friend. “This is scary. If it’s possible, let it pass. If it’s not, I’m the one.”

Recognizing his cue, he had to go out and heal a guard, confront one of his unruly followers. The form calls it putting out fires. That’s what divine does. What’s needed at the moment to allow the greater plan to progress. All right, look, this is the end of me here. There is that ruckus in the garden, and I know that I am by far too important in this world, I’m here for a very specific purpose, I’m by far too important in this world, I should go out the back way, and let my guardians take care of it. He could have. They only brought one troop. That’s not troops like you have, it’s a few. But divinity moves beyond its own needs for the greater Plan. It forgives. “Oh, my friend, what have you done here? You let your temper get away again, didn’t you? I’ll clean up so that they won’t come after you. I asked you to stay and watch. What happened?” The divine confronts when needed, with compassion always.

Now, of course, you know that at that point that’s the part where Jesus starts railing and getting really angry, and telling them all that they’re just an unworthy group of sops. Right. Not at all. He made his point and that was the end of it, because you see, that was the end of it. Because from there on the only thing mentioned about Jesus is that which relates to his death. Be aware of a couple of things in there though. He did not make excuses. Oh, well, the reason they are saying these things about me is because I had to do . . . no excuses. Are you this one? Are you the one that’s supposed to be coming here and changing everything? Are you inciting these people to riot? Are you saying that you are the King of the Jews. Aye, well, they say that. All right, that’s enough. We’ll get you.

Divinity allows itself to receive when it’s needed. When the Syrian stepped forth and said, “Let me help,” Jesus did. You see, divinity knows to receive as well as it knows the gift it gives to others.

They nailed and lashed him up, and set about preparing for the worst possible form of death. It’s a very cruel suffocation, because all of your connective tissue breaks apart. You can no longer hold yourself up to breathe. The pericardium fills up with fluid. The heart cannot put oxygenated blood through the system. It’s excruciating. Takes two, three, four days. However, divinity controls their death. He had something extremely important to do, two extremely important things to do, and then he said, essentially, I’m out of here. Here I come. And left.

What were those two important things? One of them was his new neighbor started talking to him. In fact, they both did. One of them was derisive. The other was very humbled. Mention is made of Jesus’ reply to one of them, because divinity ignores the slings, the slights. Divinity is not frightened by nor lessened by somebody’s accusation. If you’re who they say, get us all down from here. Get yourself down. But continues on doing what needs to be done for the vision to be fulfilled. But there is note that he did make a reply to the other who said what to him?

“This day you’ll be with me in Paradise.”

S: That’s what he said to him. What did the thief say to him? Asked for forgiveness. He heard that. Divinity recognizes, listens, hears a heartfelt plea, and gives time, encourages, instills confidence, says, “You’ll be with me.”

And then he sent forth his spirit. After he did one of the most outrageous things he could do. He looks down and proves that he’s not human. In the midst of crucifixion, moments before his death, he says, “Will you take care of my mother?” No whining. Once mentioned he was thirsty. No whining, “Oh, this is so miserable. I can hardly breathe. I just hate this. It’s awful. Why me? I always have the worst stuff happen to me. In all of my incarnations, it ends this way. I hate that part. I didn’t know it was going to be such a violent society. I just hate this. I’m not good at this kind of thing.” None of that. There is no record that there was any thought except for others. Recognizing how his absence would be a loss in a society in which the duty of the son was to take care of the family, he asked one of those perfectly human and absolutely reliable disciples, take care of her, all right? That might have been some sort of evil trick, you think? That was a joke. Was not serious. He listened. He gave. He looked out for others to the very end.

At the very end, they were still making fun of him. Those who had never heard the teachings were still making fun of what they thought they understood of them. Look, he says he’s the King of the Jews. He did not [say that], of course. Let’s give him that title. Let’s see who gets the clothes. Let’s rob him. Let’s jeer. Let’s make fun. I’m sure it was quite disappointing when he went so very quickly, so quickly, in fact, that they put the spear through his side to see if water or blood would gush out from the wound. What a pleasant way to find out if someone’s alive or dead. Of course, the pericardial sack full of water. In the midst of that, he left.

Interesting telling of the story this night. But, of course, next month is where the story changes. And I assure you, I will give you a strange rendition there as well, whereas tonight I’m talking about being perfectly human and perfectly divine, and how you can see the difference. The vision and the purpose is what came next.

You know, my friends, this is your life I’m talking about here. You have a choice. You have within your structure the seeds of the sleeping divine power or the seeds of the awakened divine power, but it’s there. What do you choose to do? What do you choose to be? Perfectly human or perfectly divine. You look at your life and answer that question, and you remember, beloved souls, this is not your last day. You still have a choice. Be what you’re here to be.
