Why Jesus became the Christ
Why Jesus became the Christ
At Christmas we commemorate the birth of one of the most appealing people on earth ever: Jesus. A man who loved his neighbors, a man who opened the eyes of his fellow man with inspiring insights and remarkable miracles. How did he, the simple carpenter son from Nazareth, manage this? Why did he actually come to Earth 2,000 years ago? If we consider life as an experience school for the soul, then we can shed new light on these questions.
By taking up the challenges that life presents, the soul gets to know its unlimited possibilities. It lives in the higher dimensions (heaven) to experience the spiritual side of life, it descends into lower dimensions (the earth) to understand the material side. Life in the higher dimensions is loving and harmonious, life in the lower dimensions often hard and painful. To get into the lower spheres, the soul takes on an embodiment. So we humans are a temporary embodiment of our immortal soul, come to earth to experience material life.
By coming to earth, our soul can gain experiences that are impossible in the heavenly spheres. Think of experiencing limited consciousness and experiencing emotions. As much as we do our best, through incomprehension and struggle we cannot escape intense feelings of pain, anger and sorrow here. Sooner or later our loving heart will be hurt; we are bullied at a young age, lose our loved one in the meantime or see our life's work thrown together at the end of the ride. The result is pain, frustration and uncertainty.
Our soul does not have to descend to earth for eternity; at some point she has had enough experiences in the material. However, the soul cannot just slam its earthly life book to take on new challenges in a higher dimension. For the soul to become detached from life in the lower dimensions, its embodiment will have to get rid of the earthly ballast, such as karma, limited beliefs and unprocessed emotions. Cleansing the soul literally and figuratively lightens it, allowing it to ascend to the higher dimensions.
How does Jesus fit into this picture? Given his loving and inspiring behavior, he did not carry a heavy backpack full of unprocessed experiences. This allowed him to respond to the events in his life as lovingly as in the higher spheres. It was as if he was already in the higher spheres. His ego had said goodbye, his personal will had been exchanged for the will of God. Not fear and mistrust were the basis of his actions, but surrender and trust. Despite knowing what was about to happen, he patiently waited in the garden of Gethsemane for the soldiers to arrest him.
Jesus is no exception. In the course of history more souls managed to withdraw from the earthly wheel of life. What makes his life special is the great fame that has been given to it. Thanks to the unremitting efforts of the Church, almost everyone on earth has heard of this man's light and love. Many now know that in addition to the harsh reality, there is also a gentle and loving reality. That miracles are not illusions, but can become lifelike. And that death is not a dark hole, but a return to the world of love and light.
Because of that fame, his life can serve as an example for people who also want to rise from the hard life in the lower dimensions to a loving life in the higher spheres. The crucial question arises how Jesus became the Christ. In other words, how did he become the carrier of the Christ energy, the energy of unconditional love that is omnipresent in the higher dimensions? If we refer to the Bible, we read, among other things, about his ordeal in the desert before he could share his teachings. Evidently, an adventure in the void was important to his transformation from seeking man into omniscient Christ.
Why is this void so important? In the void we are confronted with ourselves! There is no more distraction, no possibility to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Disturbing thoughts and unprocessed emotions emerge ruthlessly, which can transform them into loving thoughts and warm feelings. The void also touches our deep-seated fear: do I survive in nothing? These intense trials allow us to overcome our fear, and with it the need for control. In other words, as we travel through the void we can cleanse ourselves, and then we can live in love and light, surrender and trust.
And that emptiness is also present in our lives at the moment. More and more people feel the need to create peace in the hectic life of today and to take stock of their lives; what do I like, what not anymore, what do I give up, what do I want to change? Who does not have a Buddha statue in the house; the symbol of stillness and inner transformation. But our fear is now also fully touched. Who is still sure of a carefree old age, enjoying a well-deserved retirement and good health? In short, our prosperous vision for the future has turned into a large question mark full of (financial) uncertainties
Due to an increase in confusion in our lives, we are thrown back on ourselves. We are challenged to take new paths in good spirits. If we succeed in this, the gate opens to a life in love and light. And Jesus' life story can inspire us. Not if we hide in his light, but if we use our experiences to light our own light. Not if we consider ourselves sinful, but if we learn to see ourselves as a courageous soul, who embarks on many adventures to discover the greatness of life. By regaining the love for ourselves and our neighbors, our lives become inspired and we return to the higher dimensions.
At Christmas we celebrate the birth of light and sing about peace on earth. Christmas does not fall in the spring, when we put new seeds in the ground, not even in the summer when we take care of the growing crops, not even in the autumn when we reap the benefits of our work. Christmas falls in winter, the time of rest and contemplation. Let us use that rest to seek and kindle the light within ourselves, so that the peace sung will become a reality. Then Jesus can confidently step down from the cross to continue his life path.
In light and in love,
