Jesus, the Daily Life of a Master - part 1

Jesus-the-daily-life-of-a-masterBY OLIVIER MANITARA

In this book, the author explains how he managed to go into a memory of the tradition in order to draw new scenes from the life of Jesus. He calls these scenes fragments of the fifth gospel, which he shares for the readers of 'The Essential.'

After the Dead Sea Scrolls, which revealed to the world the existence of Essene communities and their relationship with Jesus, it seemed important to me to examine the life of this Master and deepen the origins of Christianity in a new way. This is how I discovered that each scene in the life of Christ was connected to a wisdom that touches your heart, two thousand years later.

One day, Master Jesus met a man who was plunged into torment and despair. He strongly wanted to end his life. He thought about it more and more and was about to take action. He met the Master at the turn of a path and the appearance of a son of the light called out to him, and he thought, “We do not meet such a being just by chance.” He saw a sign from God, and with respect, but also bravado, he urged the Master to explain the meaning of life and give him a good reason to live on earth.

The Master knew immediately who he was dealing with, and with the gentleness and availability that characterized him, he spoke these words that are now in the Gospels: “Walk while you have the light, lest darkness come upon you; for he who walks in darkness knows not where he goes. While you have the light, believe in the light so that you may be the children of the light.” These words had an extraordinary effect on the man. He understood that his despair and suicidal feelings did not come from him but from demons, shadowy beings who wanted to steal his life, his purpose and his light. He had lived up to that point without actually knowing for who he was living, and his life had lost its sense.

The Master took the time to talk to him and explained the words in more detail. He said that the earth was a school and place of work and it was impossible to be born and take a body without a mission, a task to complete for one own personal welfare, that of his neighbour and the earth.

Everything that appears on earth has a reason to be, a purpose and is written into the overall plan. This reason is the light that should guide man’s conscience in his choices and enterprises. When this reason guides man, the light in him grows, his consciousness expands and his will is spiritualized. This light shines in him but can also project clarity on everything that surrounds him and on everything that happens to him.

In this way man can easily read and understand the great book of life and destiny. Through the increasing light, God’s presence in life finally appears. When the divine manifests in the heart of consciousness and sensitivity, everything has a new meaning.

Nevertheless, if man loses sight of the deep meaning of his life, then, darkness settles in him and his consciousness and the sensitivity of his soul darken. This inner darkness attracts demons and thieves of light who take possession of him.

The reason for living is hidden in every man and also in everything. Only he who awakens the light inside him can discover it.

The Master explained that on earth live two brotherhoods: one of darkness and one of light. We recognize these two brotherhoods by their works: those of darkness are serious, sad, filled with power, fear and death. Those of the light are joyful, filled with love, wisdom, courage and life. The brotherhood of the children of the light has left works of light, love, beauty that glorify the Father and his creation on the whole earth. The dark brotherhood has left works of destruction and domination.

He who consciously awakens the light in him by discovering the deep reason of his life on earth is naturally brought to meet the brotherhood of light by the law of mutual support. By meeting them and by working with he also becomes a child of the light.

It is among this brotherhood that all the sons of God are born, all those who have realized the divine in life and who have manifested it on earth in full consciousness for the good of all beings. In this way they have left the imprint of divinity on earth, a work of light, a path to follow and symbols to translate. Through them are born the Mystery Schools, places of teaching and great inspired cultures. A child of the light can really become a messenger of God, a living God, who changes the fate of the world. Many men may eventually follow in his footsteps and through their union prepare the future incarnation of the light.

Jesus gave this teaching to this man who lived in darkness and was on the brink of self-destruction. His suffering was so great that he wanted to enter into a new life but he did not know how to do it.

Jesus told him that the reason for his life was written in the deepest part of him, in his breath. There, in the breath, is the place of conscious union with the energy of the Father. But he did not only tell him that, he showed him the presence of the brotherhood of light with all the strength of his soul and held out his hand.

Walking on a path of light, creating a work of light, does not happen alone. What man does alone is poor, what he does in perfect harmony with others that are on the same wavelength as him, is absolutely beautiful.

This man was enlightened by the Master and the demons of darkness that had enslaved him, left him. He became a disciple and followed the lifestyle of the Essenes all his life; not as an imposed and sterile discipline, but as a mean to manifest the light in him and glorify life.

Thus, he began to serve the light and became a child of the light. His name was written in the great book of the brotherhood of those who since the beginning of humanity are united with the light.

While Master Jesus was going through a small village, surrounded by a few disciples, with the idea of visiting a merchant, he was approached by a man who was very unhappy because his wife had given birth to a cripple child and spoke with him. He spoke about his child and was trying to understand why this misfortune had fallen on him. This man was a believer, he loved God and he also believed in Master Jesus who he considered as a representative of God on earth. In his own way, he was pious and well appreciated in his village and community. But in his home, he beat his wife, even while she was pregnant and acted like a tyrant. He was very authoritarian and his wife had nothing to say.

Looking at him, the Master saw all these things and told him that he was not sincere and truthful for if he was filled by the light of God down into his daily actions, his wife would not have given birth to a deformed child. He was, in truth, the only one responsible and now the son had to pay for the work of the father. He said to him: “There is light in the man of light and he lights the whole world. On the other hand, he who has not the light gives birth to darkness.”

These words of the Master, as harsh that it may seem, in the context that it was delivered, was definitely not a judgement, but reveals a divine law that invites reflection.

It is obvious that we should not go a spiritual Master if we are afraid of being shaken up and do not want to transform ourselves.

These words are not only about physical procreation, but also about the spirit, the soul, thoughts, words, and feelings, states of mind, actions and enterprises. For wisdom, all these are children who are brought forth by man. There are lives, destinies and words that become deeply negative because they have been birthed by inner darkness.

Master Jesus explained that a deformed child is not necessarily negative. He was deformed because he came into a world that corresponded to him. This world was brought forth by the father’s violence. In this way the child responded to the world of his father.

The father merely believed in God acting in opposition to his belief. The Master said that the biggest weakness of the Children of the Light lays in this inner division that pushes them to dis-unite to the outside. They think one thing and in life act in a different way. This attitude generates darkness and conflict in life. Only unity provides the strength and stability of the Light.

Living in darkness or in the Light is above all a personal choice and responsibility but we must understand the consequences are always collective. This is precisely the collective consciousness that brings us back to our individual responsibility.

I remember that the Master spoke at length to this man on the necessity to live with the eyes and ears open and oriented towards the conscious analysis of oneself and one’s daily life. He also explained the need for unity in his life so that his beautiful ideas are consistent with his actions.

The man was very impressed by the explanations of the Master. He opened his consciousness and his life changed. He became a caring husband and raised his son with love.

Thanks to this man, the Master gave one of the finest words of wisdom that is: “There is light within a man of light and he lights the world. If he does not have the light, he gives birth to darkness.”

The Master Jesus was at the shoe seller, sitting on a chair while the shoe seller was having him try on a model. When the shoe seller touched his feet, he felt something gentle, peaceful and calm in his soul. Almost instinctively, he raised his head and looked the Master in his eyes, trying to discover the mystery of this gentleness he perceived. An exchange with the Master happened from soul to soul through the eyes, and the man struck by love that he had felt, collapsed on the floor crying.

He explained to the Master that is life was difficult, that he was obliged to work very hard to sustain the lives of many members of his family in order to pay tributes, taxes, debts that he had incurred. He had the feeling that he had become a slave, that he was enslaved and that his whole life was about paying taxes.

The Master looked into his eyes gently and with friendship. He wanted to bring him solace, not with words, but by touching his heart and awakening the divine essence of his heart. It was a process of healing and initiation in the Light of the Father. This man plunged his eyes in those of the Master and offered him all his despair. The Master then spoke these words of God:

“Come to me, you who labor and are overburdened, come to me and enter my school because my yoke is light and my authority is gentle.”

The Master explained to him, from heart to heart that love must guide his life. In everything he did he should be like the first manifestation, the first born of the Father. Love had to come out of him to envelop and feed all the members of his family. Then, he would also feel lightness in him and not fear, despair and anger.

He invited him to contemplate all the wonders that the Father had offered him in all aspects of his life with the eyes of the heart: that it be through nature, work or family. He assured him that if he returned to the love of the Father, all his sufferings would be consumed because in him lived the simple love of the heart and that the heart is beyond all explanations. It is a spiritual organ that only finds its fulfilment in the action of loving. If man acts under the inspiration of this energy in his life, then his whole life is entirely renewed and transformed; be it in the family, health, labor or his inner life.

Man looks at the world with physical eyes and discovers according to what he is physically but if he looks with the intelligence of the heart, then it is no longer his own conceptions of life that he perceives. His heart opens a new universe to him, one of peace, of gentleness and rest in the Father.

Finally, the Master invited him to open his heart to his Father and he affirmed that everything else would be added to him.

“Come to me because my yoke is light and my authority is gentle.”

These words have a “political” resonance and it goes far beyond what the Master told the shoe seller than wanting to comfort and heal him by revealing the power of the heart. It joins other words: “Give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar and to God what belongs to God.” Caesar is the tyrant, the false god, the one who enslaves and diverts the energy of the Father by engraving his own image on everything. So, this shoe seller carried on him in his subtle bodies the image of Caesar and lived for Caesar. Caesar is not a man, it is a principle, an egregore fed by all the men who belong to him and who carry him in themselves.

Each little tyrant who aspires to enslave life, calls and feeds this great tyrant. This egregore incarnates regularly through men and he places his system destined to reduce all forms of life to slavery and domination. This is government by fear and military power.

The Master wanted to deliver this man from this etheric imprint by showing him the heart and also the Father as being the one and only God. When a man finds the Father in his heart, he can then escape the most terrifying tribute, the one of his spirit, his soul and his life.

The yoke of the Father is light, gentle and full of hope.
