On Mastery

This page is dedicated to comments made by Jeshua on a variety of subjects we thought might be of interest to you. All of these statements in their entirety may be found in the material sold on this website.

As with all Truths, as they are absorbed as information and allowed to mature into understanding, old styles of thinking are surrendered and a new awareness emerges which uplifts all of humanity.

About Mastery

Any master, any true master, is one of the meek. For mastery does not rest on the accumulation of knowledge. Mastery rests in divine ignorance in which true knowledge shines forth, the knowledge that would radiate through your mind from the Mind of God, the knowledge that would enlighten even the sensory mechanism of the body so they receive what is being transmitted from all created objects in ways that transcend ordinary knowing and seeing and hearing.

A master cannot blame. And a master can never perceive him or herself as having been victimized. And yet, this mastery doesn’t come through special spiritual power. It comes through a simple and free choice to say in this and every moment, “I believe I’ll adopt the perspective of a master – no sense in blame, no sense in feeling like a victim. What I’m experiencing is wholly mine. I must, therefore, have wanted it.”

A master has no choice but to serve – but to serve not from duty, but from joy. For the greatest joy is to extend the good, the holy, and the beautiful.

A master never ceases in growing him or herself. A master is never finished. For the further you go into God, the greater the responsibility, for you are dealing with greater power. Thus the need for vigilance and discipline does not go away. It increases, but a master welcomes it.

Mastery is not control. For control – the need to control – is an effect of the energy of fear, not Love.

Fearlessness is the primary characteristic of mastery.

Mastery comes when fear has been completely dissolved. And fear is dissolved, not by fearing it, not by hating it, not by judging it, but by being looked upon with perfect innocence – embraced – in the same way that a scientist would watch the ripples of a little pebble that’s been dropped into a pool of water to see how they’ve created other ripples, and other temporary disturbances in the field or the surface of the water.

Mastery is a state in which you have embraced yourself as a ceaseless creator and assumed complete responsibility for everything which comes into the field of your awareness, without judging it, so that you can simply decide whether it’s going to stay or be dissolved in its effects.

Miracle-mindedness is still a stage of perception short of mastery.

Become, then again, as a little child, for every master is a little child, delighting in the great mystery and the seeming surprises of discovering the power that can move through them.
