In my first essay, I discussed the atonement theory that dominates most of mainline Christian thinking. After Disclosure, the greatest need for the human family will be how to understand meaning and purpose. As some have said, it is easier to live without food than without meaning. One huge meaning making belief system for many, if not most, Christians is the understanding that Jesus’ main role was to be a transaction between a wrathful God and a sinful humanity. Since we couldn’t pay the debt that our individual and collective sins had amassed, Jesus had to come down and suffer so that the debt would be paid off. It is in this line of thinking for the reason why Christians always are so grateful to Jesus for his great sacrifice on the cross. He did for us what we couldn’t do for ourselves.
Though mainline Christians don’t use the word, “karma,” much, it is pretty equivalent to what they mean by “sins.” Karma is real and in fact it appears that karmic laws undergird the entire spiritual evolution from the most dualistic existence to the most non-dual. There is such a thing as karmic debt, as reported by near-death experiences and a variety of metaphysical sources. So, did Jesus really take on our collective karmic debt and balance it by his death?
I offer here a nuanced understanding of the karmic rebalancing needs that Jesus did help with but not in the way that is commonly understood. It is my hope that this nuance satisfies both the exoteric and esoteric but please note that the following is only my own speculation, so accept this caveat.
Teaching Us How to Fish!
The common adage of which everyone is familiar is that it is better to teach a person how to fish than to give them a fish. The former is empowering and leads to transformation, the latter is enabling and leads to dependency as well as disempowerment. As we see below, I hold that the Logos, through Jesus, directly modeled for humanity how to live a transformed life of love and forgiveness that is contagious. As the lifestyle is passed on, karma is rebalanced since forgiveness and love stop it.
Jesus Sacrificed an Incarnation at the Logos’ Invitation
I believe that Jesus, who was the face, or living icon, of the Logos/Love, actually came to END religion, at least the superficial aspects that have led to war, pain, and exclusion, once and for all. God is not Christian and neither was Jesus, for that matter. Christianity was never supposed to be a new religion but a revealing of what was always true through not only a non-dual master teaching but also through this teacher’s death, resurrection, and ascension. Q’uo, a source channeled by the same team that brought in the Law of One, said in a breathtakingly beautiful and concise description of the role of Jesus, explained that by the last three years of his life, Jesus channeled the Logos so completely that he “stopped experiencing the Creator and for long periods of time became the Creator experiencing third density. Such is the perfect channeling of love. The achievement of the perfect channeling was the mystery of union between Creator and illusion,” (click here for the link to Q’uo’s full statement). Jesus became the 3rd density “disguise” or vessel of the fullness of the Logos and through him, the Logos revealed to humanity the whole path of spiritual evolution from beginning to end (out of the octave and into 8th density!) through the gestalt of Jesus’ life, death, resurrection, and ascension. In fact, the entity that came to be known as Jesus’ first and ultimate personal sacrifice is that he accepted the invitation prior to incarnating to Earth to be a messenger of Love, itself (see Law of One, 17.11 and 17.22), and thus sacrificed an incarnation (precious, indeed!) so that this mission of the Logos, of ultimate intimacy with third density, could be accomplished. This statement from Q’uo elucidates further:
There needed to be one who wished to sacrifice an incarnation to the ever-increasing pleasure and agony of the Creator, experiencing what this instrument would call the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, for it is the nature of the Christ and the nature of third density that the two, perceiving each other, should react—the third density with a lack of understanding, and the Christ with wonder, joy and sacrifice. Such is the sorrow of your illusion and the joy of sensation and communion.
The Logos, Through Jesus, Assumed the Archetypal Role of the Scapegoat
Forgiveness demands three new simultaneous “seeings”: I must see God in the other; I must access God in myself; and I must see God in a new way that is larger than an “Enforcer.” (Sunday)
Jesus showed us how to hold the pain and let it transform us, rather than pass it on to the others around us. (Monday)
We are all tempted to project our problem on someone or something else rather than dealing with it in ourselves. (Tuesday)
An utterly new attitude (Spirit) has been released in history; it’s a spirit of love, compassion, and forgiveness. As Jesus prayed on the cross, “Father, forgive them, they know not what they do.” (Wednesday)
Jesus did not come to change the mind of God about humanity (it did not need changing)! Jesus came to change the mind of humanity about God. (Thursday)
The cross moves us from the rather universal myth of redemptive violence to a new scenario of transformative suffering. (Friday)
Through Jesus, the Logos showed the heart of Itself as Love. If humanity’s mind could be changed about God, then embracing God as a loving, merciful deity would be a way to connect to the power source of higher/highest energetics and become channels, like Jesus, of the Logos/Love. Karma gets balanced with love as lessons are learned due to the heart breaking open and forgiveness showering forth. Like Jesus, we become fonts of the Logos, channels of Love, itself. We become the faces of the Logos where It can “sound through” and speak to a hungry, hurting world.
Conclusion of Part II
Jesus was able through free will to so purely channel the Logos that the Logos “walked in” and experienced Earth’s third density directly and without filter. It very well may be that many of Jesus’ sweeping, cosmic statements in the Canonical Gospels as well as other non-canonical Gospels such as the Gospel of Thomas, did indeed come from the Logos through the mouth of Jesus. In this way, Jesus was both human and divine simultaneously which is in keeping with the mainline Christian notion, albeit with a nuance not described therein.
Jesus willingly sacrificed an incarnation so that the Logos could embody him in order to teach humanity how to access higher levels of consciousness. Through inspiration and imitation, people’s hearts were opened and the collective increasing of green ray, heart energetics gained in strength towards tipping points that continue today.
Jesus “saves” us not because he saved us from the wrath of angry deity by paying an outstanding karmic debt but because he showed us how to live a life of love of self, love of neighbor, and thorough forgiveness. We are the ones who stop the wheels of karma and the Logos, through Jesus, showed us the fastest, most efficacious way to do it: sacrificial love.
