The ‘BE’ Attitude

Take accountability for your actions and be rewarded for your acts of integrity.

Jesus on “The Law of Karma”

Jesus teaching to the massesDuring his lifetime, the Master Jesus left us clear and concise instructions for living. His teachings give us pearls of wisdom that challenged the conventional ways of being and living in his time. Nevertheless, the path he taught teaches us how to become one with our Higher Self. Let’s take a look.

Did you know that Jesus taught the law of karma? Specifically, in his Sermon on the Mount, he states the mathematical precision of the law of karma, which is the law of personal accountability. Many Christians believe that because Jesus died on the cross for them, they are free of their karma and do not have to make amends.

This belief is a half-truth because Jesus did pay the price for our sins, but it was only for ‘a time.’ We are still accountable for paying back our karmic debts and taking back upon ourselves what Jesus has carried for us. We were never given a pass on accountability for our actions.

The ‘Be’ Attitudes

The most famous of Jesus’s lessons on karma are those of the twelve blessings to be received by those who live a righteous life. These are stated in the Beatitudes, the teachings that Jesus delivered during the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew: Chapter 5).

For this sermon, Jesus called together his disciples. He explained to them in the Beatitudes how the attitude of Be-ness – the attitude of being one with God – would enable them to refute the materialism of their day. He wanted them to acknowledge the actions of the Christ in each other and to be able to perform the same feats that he was to demonstrate at the conclusion of the sermon, i.e. cleansing the leper, casting out demons, and healing all who were sick.

In a dictation through Mark Prophet, Jesus said: “Many are familiar with the Beatitudes of the law, with the scripts of beauty and positive affirmation, but they fail utterly to assess their own need to manifest the teachings they profess to love.”

Here are the Beatitudes, with clarification by our teachers Mark L. Prophet and Elizabeth Clare Prophet. This sermon covers instruction on the twelve phases of human creation.
  • Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.  (Blessed are those who humbly acknowledge their spiritual need. They are ready to surrender the small self and to be disciplined by love. All duality must go, for they will then be able to enter into His kingdom.)
  • Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. (Blessed are those willing to work through their doubts and fears and sense of mortality to recognize that they are now and always will be the son of God, a son wed to the Christ through the crystal cord (See Your Soul’s Journey on Earth), for they shall attain atonement (at-one-ment), and the resurrection of their true identity.)
  • Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the Earth. (Blessed are those who have attained an awareness of God and the Divine Ego and no longer feel the need to defend the human ego through intellectual arrogance, for they will inherit everything by their submission to the Will of God.)
  • Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled. (Blessed are those who passionately long to know and be the Law of God in action, for God will satisfy their souls with the flame of love that begets obedience to righteousness (the ‘right’ use) of the Laws of God.)
  • Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy. (This is the restatement of the Golden Rule: “Do unto others as you would have done unto you.” Blessed are those who show mercy through forgiveness, kindness, and compassion to a suffering humanity, for they also shall receive mercy.)
  • Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. (Blessed are those who are in harmony with Christ, have conquered all misqualified substance (been purified from the inside out), for they shall have the singleness of vision of the image of the Most Holy.)
  • Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called the children of God. (Blessed are those who express gratitude for the presence of God in themselves because they have risen to the consciousness of oneness with God and shall be able to behold the perfect concept of Divinity.)
  • Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven. (Blessed are those who willingly sacrifice the human ego and its qualities of frustration, anxiety and injustice, and the non-recognition of their God-identity,  for they will experience total immersion in the oneness of Christ.)
  • Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. (Blessed is he that resists the machinations of intrigue and treachery and other defense mechanisms of the human ego, for the manifestation of one’s real identity is the Light of the world that draws all humanity into the consciousness of God-Reality.)
  • Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. (Blessed are those with the singleness of purpose through loving obedience to the Laws of God, that all one’s actions are to the glory of God, for you shall accelerate the momentum of the Real Self.)
  • Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. (Blessed are they who have the consciousness of the Christ and willingly and obediently fulfill God’s Laws with exactitude, for they shall balance their karma victoriously.)
  • Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment: but I say unto you, that whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment; and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca (Jewish expression of scorn or contempt), shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire. (Blessed are they who do not abuse God-power through criticism, condemnation, or judgment of others, or engage in psychic murder through the projection of anger towards others, for they shall be able to withstand the fires of human miscreation.)
