After watching the “Mary Magdalene” movie on Netflix, I was drawn to re-read some of the Ra materials, in particular regarding the life of Jesus of Nazareth.
What I liked about this movie, it quite clearly demonstrated the reason of Judas’ betrayal – just like it was explained by Ra:
“This entity, Judas, felt that, if pushed into a corner, the entity you call Jesus would then be able to see the wisdom of using the power of intelligent infinity in order to rule others. The one you call Judas was mistaken in this estimation of the reaction of the entity, Jesus, whose teach/learning was not oriented towards this distortion. This resulted in the destruction of the bodily complex of the one known as Jesus to you.” (17.17)
But what I was actually looking for, when re-reading these materials, is something that explains the reason behind Jesus intentional choice of early death through martyrdom. He definitely knew what was awaiting him in Jerusalem and “could also have, when the hour came, walked another path. Its incarnation would then have been prolonged” (84.4). So my question was: what was the true reason of Jesus choosing martyrdom? Is it what the church says about it or was his motivation different? He must have sacrificed his life for something really important, but what if his message was distorted by the structures of power just like many other truths?
So far the Law of One answered a lot of my questions, not only making sense in every area of my research, but also resonating with me on the deeper level. So, I’m going to refer this material in order to find information regarding the life and message of Jesus of Nazareth.
Ra says that Jesus was incarnated as a Wanderer from the 4th density, but more importantly, from the highest sub-octave of the vibration of love (love and compassion is the “curriculum” of 4th density). So, he was basically graduating from his density and decided to incarnate in 3D in order to demonstrate the purest and highest level of vibration of love – the “graduation level” at his density. He “was desirous of entering this planetary sphere in order to share the love vibration in as pure a manner as possible” (17.11).
Also, the quality of 4th density love that Jesus was demonstrating at the end of his life can be termed as “Love without Wisdom” (lessons of Wisdom is the “curriculum” of the next 5th density):
“When the entity Jehoshua decided to return to the location called Jerusalem for the holy days of its people it turned from work mixing love and wisdom and embraced martyrdom which is the work of love without wisdom.” (75.14)
“This entity incarnated with the plan of martyrdom. There is no wisdom in this plan but rather understanding and compassion extended to its fullest perfection.” (84.4)
Using an analogy, this type of incarnation can be compared with a 3rd density being (human) going to the 2nd density world (jungle, for example) in order to fully offer himself (including his life) for serving the 2nd density beings (plants and animals) without any means for self-protection against predators: “This entity was to be defended by its friends. The entity reminded its friends to put away the sword. This entity then delivered itself to be put to the physical death” (33.11). So it’s quite evident that this plan of martyrdom had no wisdom, so why to perform it?
It’s important to notice that Ra made a special effort to explain the true meaning of martyrdom, saying that the term “martyr is reserved for those who lay down their lives for the service they may provide to others.” (84.4)
As we know, Ra doesn’t waste a single word when answering questions, so putting additional focus on explaining the meaning of martyrdom should definitely have an important purpose. Which is not difficult to discover if we find classic Christian explanation of this term: “martyr is someone who died for their faith” (see Wikipedia for more details).
Doesn’t this deviation provide a completely different view on the reason behind Jesus choice of martyrdom? Instead of seeing the martyrdom as an act of 100% service-to-others (laying down one’s own life for the service to others, as Ra termed it), the Christian church is glorifying martyrdom as a proof of having strong faith, therefore justifying and promoting death based on the conflict between different belief systems. Isn’t it an interesting divergence? Such a definition of martyrdom (as a death for faith) is indirect, but still powerful motivation for religious wars, persecution of heretics (or any opposition to the governing policy), witch-hunts, jihads, discrimination and dividing of the society.
Also, what should look interesting is that Romans, after violently murdering a troublesome local teacher (from a different culture and in a foreign land), they took his teaching, brought it to their own land and culture, edited it to suit their needs and they have been pushing this modified ideology on the wider population of Earth for hundreds of years.
What did the Roman church find in the life of Jesus of Nazareth that could suit the purpose of this powerful and wealthy structure that was trying to establish and secure its dominance over vast foreign territories?.. Again, it’s an image of martyrdom, but from the additional invented angle: picturing a super-human dying “for forgiveness of our sins” and stating that he “gave Himself for our sins so that He might rescue us from this present evil age” [Bible/Galatians 1:4].
These days it’s not so difficult to see the purpose of cultivating such idea by any controlling structure that needs its subjects to feel sinful/guilty and small, but mainly powerless and passive. Here we see a clear attempt to switch our attention from doing our own inner-work and transforming our lives by ourselves to the false belief that someone else (who is much greater and more capable than us) will do it for us. This type of programming creates one of the major obstacles for a majority of believers on their way to making a change within themselves and in their lives: they prefer to wait for someone else (or for better circumstances) to do this work, justifying their passiveness by pre-programmed naïve statement that “their faith alone will save them”.
Also, speaking about the Roman church’s choice of promoting Jesus fate, it’s useful to notice that there is a subtle programming in demonstrating the image of very powerful miracle-maker being tortured and dying on the cross of his own volition. It gives a deceitful message of virtuous obedience, when avoiding the usage of own power for resisting authorities is considered honourable, so that we should feel “more spiritual” when letting the structures of power to take control over our lives, even to the point of killing us. It’s typical Machiavellian approach that Roman church used when decided to use the image of dying Jesus for its own advantage.
But the biggest part of Jesus work on Earth – his real-life examples of “sharing the love vibration in as pure a manner as possible” that he was demonstrating during his lifetime – this information is quite scarce: all we know are some stories that were edited by the church and some parables that still need to be decoded (this is one of the examples of available information: “This is my commandment, that ye love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.” – Bible/John 12:14). Though what’s really well-known and accentuated by the church is his death, to such a degree that Jesus and the death on cross became almost synonymous.
But still, can we find the true message that the death of this 4th density wanderer-teacher is implying?
Well, it’s possible, but just like Judas who wasn’t able to understand why Jesus didn’t use his “super-powers”, we often find ourselves in the same position when looking at the image of this powerful enlightened human being on the cross because of his own choice.
The reason for this confusion is that his act of self-sacrifice is intentionally misinterpreted by the church. But in reality he didn’t die for our sins or to save us or for his faith (in the way the church understands it). The main purpose of his life was to provide us with an example of the purest form of love; and usually when such an act of giving is undertaken in the 3rd density world, it leads to the early loss of life of the giver. This is how it works in the world where not everyone is vibrating at the pure frequency of Love. Jesus knew that, but he had chosen to perform his life’s mission anyway. This is what Ra calls “martyr” – people “who lay down their lives for the service they may provide to others”. Death through martyrdom was the price he had to pay for providing this specific kind of service (of sharing the purest vibration of love) in this 3D reality.
So, the question about why Jesus had chosen death through martyrdom is answered: he incarnated to demonstrate the purest vibration of Love; and facing early death was very unfortunate but the only possible outcome (or deadly side-effect, so to speak) of performing this task of his incarnation. So, he had to agree to that. But there is another question that seems logical to pose, because the idea of demonstrating “love without wisdom” may seem unpractical since it always leads to an untimely death in this reality.
Everyone may find their own sub-message in this act, but I’ll point only to the main idea. Why do we need to know what is the purest form of love?
The answer is simple: to have a benchmark, a distant goal or at least a general direction to follow when on the daily basis we are choosing our way towards the graduation from the 3rd density. The requirement is to be at least 51% of Service-to-Others (STO) – we know it theoretically from the Law of One, but what does it mean practically or what does the 100% STO look like?
Let’s use an analogy. For example, in order to pass a graduation exam in the arts school, a student needs to paint a picture in light colours: where the overall tone of the painting should contain at least 51% of the white paint (yes, this is my symbolic reference to the 51% Service-to-Others polarisation that’s necessary for the graduation from 3D). It’s quite logical to assume that for performing this task, the student needs to know the standards – the purest grade of white colour, so that he can adjust the colours of his painting based on this benchmark, trying to be as close to this level of lightness as the design of his painting allows, but minimum at the 51% lightness mark.
That was Jesus mission – to show us the purest “colour” (vibrational frequency) of Love, so that we can adjust our own vibration of love accordingly. And this kind of adjustments are to be done on a daily basis. Those lucky people who observed Jesus’ life as an expression of the purest vibration of love had this great example right in front of their eyes, they witnessed this vibration in action (that’s the origin of the religious term “witness”). Perhaps his companions were supposed to bring this information forward, but unfortunately it didn’t reach us in the form of a clear picture.
Though what’s clearly known is that this demonstration of pure vibration of Love prematurely ended the incarnation of this 4th density Wanderer. Which is not the intended message of his life: in our attempts to follow his example we don’t have to consent to the same fate, because in order to graduate from 3rd density we are not supposed to “paint everything in pure white colour” (as he did for the purpose of teaching).
We just need to be most of the time and in the most of our decisions (51%, symbolically speaking) on the side of Love and service to others (at the “51% lightness level”). It implies that most of the time we will be sacrificing a significant part of our life for helping others, i.e. giving up our comfort / convenience / time / energy / wealth / pleasure / habits /etc… and it makes us all, who follow this path of ascension, martyrs to a certain degree (if we perform our mission with love and for the sake of Love).Recommended4 recommendationsPublished in
