Esu Sananda: Reclaiming Your Authority As A Co-Creator
3/7/99 ESU "JESUS" SANANDA
Good evening, child. It is I, Sananda, also known as Esu or Jesus the Christ, depending upon your own understanding. Regardless of the label, I come in and with and as representative of the One Holy White Light of our Father, Creator of all that is. It is my pleasure to commune with you on this day, and I am thankful and honored that you have taken the time to sit with me.
I, as well as others of the Higher (Lighted) Realms, are in full understanding that many of you ones are questioning what is taking place and when and how it might all play out eventually. What I shall comment in regard to this matter is this:
All is progressing forward, and all will eventually play itself out. There are many human conditions, karma, and decisions that have effect upon the outcome of the situation, and we must allow for all these human dramas to be expressed as they will. After all, the principal way that you in the third-dimensional reality learn is by the human experience through your current expressions of physicality.
Many have, are, and will complete lessons as the current situation plays itself out, and it is as it should be—even though it may not be as many wish it to be. There shall be those who will consider the outcome to be sad, and others will be vindicated, and still others may come to the completion of this particular physical expression.
None can predict the absolute outcome, for the human drama is dependent upon the free-will choices and decisions made by all involved—and there are many, many involved, even some who do not know they are involved. So, know that it will all be resolved, one way or the other, and there are none who can know for certain, though there are probable outcomes.
[Editor's note: The following section was originally denoted as a private message for some ones who are in responsible positions which are impacted by this situation. This update continues from a similar message within the 2/1/99 writing by Sananda.]
As you will recall, we wrote previously about Doris's own personal condition. That condition has not improved, but rather has deteriorated even further, for the heart is still hardened, and she will not allow herself to reach out to those who really do care for her wellbeing. Her emotional state is such that you might consider her to be in a melt-down condition, and confusion is blurring the mind's ability to make rational decisions. Even words meant as constructive criticism or assistance are taken with an unhealthy dose of doubt, anger and distrust.
All the while, she has E.J. sitting beside her, encouraging her to continue, as they have lost so much of their own in the financial arena, that he too is functioning from a state of great fear. You see, even though he professes to believe all that has been written and spoken by us in the last eleven or so years, he still fears that, without money, he is nothing and fears for their future.
Add to this the embarrassment of having to return without having succeeded, after all the statements made about not returning until they have gold in hand, and you have two people who are operating, not in faith, but in fear, which is the ABSOLUTE opposite of faith.
Those with whom they are dealing, trying to obtain money, are not all working from the Lighted side of Creation. There are many who would dangle a carrot of small amounts of money in order to obtain complete control of a U.S. operation, even though it has never been presented as such.
When you play in the Big League, with the Big Boys, you can know that, unless you have absolutely clean hands going in, with nothing even the slightest bit shady in your background, these Big League Players will find out all the dirty laundry in your baskets, and will use it against you whenever needed. The information is held as a trump card, ready to play, just as soon as they hand over the bait money.
So, be very careful, anyone who thinks they shall benefit from such funding, for I can tell you for a fact that strings are attached, and the strings reach around the world several times and are filled with many knots. If you ones believe that the money from these sources is what is needed to bring about freedom and liberty to your projects and this mission, then I tell you that you certainly are traveling down a very slippery slope, and at the bottom you shall find yourselves drowning in thick quicksand. I strongly urge you, therefore, before accepting any money from this source, to think about what you really want, and just what your intent might be, for if money is all that you are seeking, then money is all you shall have.
How many times have I told you ones that you HAVE NOT because your faith is such that you believe you CANNOT HAVE? My Father's universes are filled with abundance, but abundance does not always take the form of great sums of money.
One of the basic lessons that you should all have learned is that money is not the answer to all of your problems. Your problems come from lack of trust, lack of cooperation, lack of community, and lack of love and forgiveness.
You have formed something which more resembles a large business holding, with one or two people controlling everything, rather than each and every one of you having the same amount of responsibility AND authority. Giving responsibility without the authority to carry out the job at hand is a dead-end position. How can you possibly carry out your particular task, and have full responsibility of that task, without the authority to make decisions about that task? If you have the responsibility, while only one or two hold the positions of authority, how can those one or two persons possibly know every detail involved in every task, and how can they possibly expect to, or be expected to, make the best decisions for every situation?
[Editor's note: This is the end of the originally private section of this writing.]
Why is responsibility so freely given, while authority is rationed? The answer is as old as the world itself, and it is CONTROL. If you have the responsibility to carry out your appointed or chosen task, but another holds the reins of authority, then you are most likely destined to fail, even before beginning, because you are always going to be on "the short end of the stick" when things go wrong, even though the decisions that brought you to that end were not necessarily your own.
Yet, the position is still your responsibility!
Under these conditions you will forever find yourselves in "head-butting" contests with those in "control" and seats of authority, for it is a most inefficient way to operate. Authority is not rendered to those with whom it should reside because there is lack of trust, lack of cooperation, lack of love, and lack of forgiveness. In your third-dimensional expression, there are VERY FEW
who have progressed enough in their journeys to allow authority to fall to those who are responsible for a given job. Meanwhile, those who can actually handle authority in a responsible, balanced manner are even fewer in number.
Authority carries with it a great deal of responsibility, and if you ones fully understood the ramifications of the authority that you have been given by Creator, you would not be in the condition you find yourselves today. When you allow another to take away your authority, or you freely give it away, you are short-changing yourselves, because each and every one of you have no greater or any less authority in the eyes of Creator God.
I told you earlier that God's universes are teeming with abundance in every form. It is only because you have allowed your authority to be usurped by the Adversary that you live in a mental and spiritual state of LACK consciousness. If you truly believe that all you need, and even what you desire, is yours simply for the asking, then you would not be needing to travel all over the globe to find monetary treasures. You would, rather, be creating them exactly where you are!
But, because your levels of faith and understanding are stuck in the mud, you are, therefore, continuing to lack what are, in some cases, even the basic necessities—to say nothing of the desires of the heart. You have not because you ask not, or you ask in error—that is, you ask without COMPLETE AND UNBENDING FAITH! If there is the slightest seed of doubt, you have undone it even before you have spoken it. And, remember from whence cometh doubt—it comes from fear, and you all do, I hope, remember THE source of fear, for it is, after all, lesson number one.
By allowing fear to have such control over you, you have, in essence, given away your authority to create the reality that you all profess to desire. God did not create you to achieve any task without giving you the authority to create your own reality.
But you all walk around as if you are victims of some angry, vengeful god. The anger and vengeance are not from God, children, THEY ARE FROM THE ADVERSARY, and you must, if you are ever going to step off the down-trodden path, take back that authority which you have given away.
Stop waiting for another to bring you back the money, or tell you what you can do, when you can do it, and how you can do it. Stop waiting for someone else to make your decisions, and know that the only really bad decision is the one you refuse to make.
ONLY BY TAKING THE RESPONSIBILITY AND THE AUTHORITY FOR YOUR OWN LIVES CAN YOU TRULY BECOME FREE. Freedom is not going to come from money and, in all likelihood, money will be fleeting if you believe that it is all you need to set you free.
I agree that you live in a physical world, where money seems to be the ultimate ruler. But that, children, is the greatest of the lies, for it only gets you ones running around in very large circles, chasing your own tails—for the more you get, the more you spend, and the more you spend, the more you want, and the wants become needs, and the cycle becomes never ending, for more is never enough, and enough always requires more.
Rather, get your spiritual house in order—and that means you clean out all bits of fear, regardless of how small they might appear to be, for those bits of fear will forever keep the abundance just beyond your reach. After all vestiges of fear have been eradicated, you will suddenly find that even your priorities have changed, and suddenly money becomes but another tool, and not something that you endlessly chase after.
You will find that the big houses and fancy cars and clothes have absolutely no value, and appearances mean nothing. The only thing you will find yourself focusing on is your part in the overall scheme of Creation; and once you find this level of knowledge, then material possessions, fear, and doubt have no hold over you.
THIS IS FREEDOM!
This is the point where abundance will truly flow, for you will be working in cooperation with Creation, and not in opposition to it—for fear of lack is opposite to Creation, and fear only destroys your authority, which is given to each of you in order that you might create your own reality.
Do you ones understand this? The most difficult part of the whole journey upon which you ones find yourselves is ridding yourselves of all the self-imposed limitations due to fear. The best way of getting rid of fear is to have experiences which allow you to take control over the fear with the AUTHORITY of your birthright, and thereby re-create the situation into something more balanced and bountiful.
Many of you ones have bought into the lie that it is much easier to allow someone else to hold the reins of authority, for if something goes wrong, they're ultimately the ones who will be blamed. However, allow me to correct you, for it is once again a lie that your lives are easier thereby, for there is always much more struggling because you shall always have to answer to the one(s) in authority for everything you do. You will be obligated to that one or ones, thus you have no freedom—so your life isn't easier, but instead becomes more complicated! You expect the one(s) in authority to provide for you in one form or another, and that, chelas, is not the way I taught!
Know that we allow the human dramas to play themselves out because we do not have the authority to interfere. We do not have the authority because the authority is YOURS, not ours! It is your decisions, your choices, and your authority to work through your own dramas. We only interfere in extenuating circumstances, and when a species is ready to blow up their world, which affects the rest of Creation.
You who are there as Ground Crew have the same authority as everyone else on the planet. You would never have been asked to participate in the experience with one hand tied behind your backs, so to speak. You do not need our permission to do anything, for we do not grant permission, and we do not call all the shots, as so many of you seem to believe. We shall all work in complete cooperation with one another, but we shall never take away your personal authority and decision-making functions, for you would learn nothing, and the mission would soon cease to be effective.
There is none whose authority is any greater than another. Those who would tell you otherwise are not functioning within the framework of this particular mission. There are other missions that have been mounted by adversarial forces to destroy this mission of bringing Earth into the greater galactic family, for those who would want control perceive they have much to lose. Therefore, just because ones come telling you that you shall do thus and so if you want to be on "my team", be very, very careful which team this is, because MY teammembers do not dictate every aspect of your lives!
Each of you know full well all these things, and are only in need of refresher classes from time to time. This has been one of those refresher classes.
Thank you for your time, your patience, and your perseverance in these times. We are making progress, and though you may look upon happenings as setbacks, know that they are but further experiences from which all shall learn many valuable lessons.
I am Sananda, One with the Holy White Light of Creator God, our Father. I leave thee, as always, with the blessings of our Father. Go then, in Peace and in Light and in LOVE.
