Our friend, Melody Fletcher, publishes a great blog, Deliberate Receiving, all about Law of Attraction. She recently wrote a blog post, If We Create Our Own Reality, How Did Jesus Get Crucified?
An obviously thought-provoking title, especially if you grew up Christian, as I did.
Here are some thoughts on the subject — from me, my spirit guides, and Seth (the spirit guide channelled by Jane Roberts).
I abandoned the traditional Christian view of Jesus many years ago. As a result, my family is still wondering if he’s going to “save” me, or if I will burn in hell. I tell them to quit worrying about it ‘cause I’m going to the same place they are.
I believe Jesus was real. Though, in my opinion, not in the way traditional Christians see him. He was teaching self-empowerment. But his message got distorted and twisted for various ulterior motives. I do not believe he ever wanted anyone to worship him, even though he is the son of God. But then, we are all the sons and daughters of God. He even said all the things he could do we could also do.
Some years ago Chief Joseph, my other spirit guides, and I wrote an article, Did Jesus Exist? Here’s a slightly edited excerpt from that article:
“The vision many of you hold of Jesus, the Christ, is a magnificent one. You’ve created him as you would like to be yourselves. Does that mean he’s not real?
“Not at all. He is real — he lives in your hearts. He represents the joys, the hopes, the dreams all of you hold for yourselves and your loved ones.
“In a very real sense, Jesus is your creation. The creation of a vision, a dream you have — a dream of heaven on earth when peace and love will reign supreme among all peoples.
“The figure many of you view as the historic Jesus did not exist in the way you think he did. Your historic Jesus was a composite of at least several different and powerful spiritual teachers who lived around that time.”
Also, Seth (channelled by Jane Roberts) had some fascinating things to say about Jesus. For example:
“Christ, the historical Christ, was not crucified….He had no intention of dying in that manner; but others felt that to fulfill the prophecies in all ways, a crucifixion was a necessity. Christ did not take part in it. There was a conspiracy in which Judas played a role, an attempt to make a martyr out of Christ. The man chosen was drugged — hence the necessity of helping him carry the cross, and he was told that he was the Christ. He believed that he was. He was…deluded, but he also…believed that he, not the historical Christ, was to fulfill the prophecies.”
For me, Jesus’ basic message is simple:
We are all children of God, we are part of God. And therefore, we have all the power that goes with being divine. That’s real self-empowerment! And that, in my opinion, was Jesus’ real message to all of us.
I know not everyone agrees with my perspective. But it’s the only perspective that makes any sense to me.
