“I wondered what benefit it would be to the Christ or even Jesus to reincarnate into the World again via being born as babies, if they are already working in the World in physical bodies now?
“If they incarnated as babies, then wouldn’t they both have to start from the bottom and work their way up, and yet, they would both still know who they were at a particular age, and then work with humanity at that age?”
Whether or not one of the greater lives can work in the flesh with humanity and how they can interplay with us is determined by two things:
1. Humanity’s karma.
2. The readiness of humanity and disciples who will be taught by the avatar.
To openly manifest to humanity would create such a disturbance that this situation is avoided in this age. We are told that the gods walked among men in the days of Atlantis and this may have been necessary at the time to accomplish certain objectives, but it also created numerous problems, which would be amplified today.
One obvious problem would be that those in power and authority would be threatened and would seek to undermine the work and teachings of the Masters.
The coming of Christ will pave the way for the externalization of the Hierarchy so they can work openly with humanity again. My guess is that it will take some time before humanity is ready for complete openness, that it will be first tested among disciples.
In recorded history the greater lives have been born among us when they desire to work directly with us. When one is born as a babe he is much more accepted than a life that may not be seen as a normal human. Sometimes an avatar will be born among us and other times he will overshadow a disciple. The overshadowing has drawbacks as the body belongs to the disciple and not the Master. This gives the disciple full power of decision making and if he does not listen properly or fully cooperate then the work can suffer. Jesus was one that did fully cooperate (as far as we know) and this made his life a great success.
The drawback of the avatar being born as a babe is that it may take some time for him to fully understand his mission and he has to pump into his mind all the data and learning he will need for his mission. The advantage is he can work among us as a normal human without being an immediate threat to the powers-that-be and within the restrictions of karma.
That said, let me wish the group a Merry Christmas.
Again, in history, we are sitting on the blending of two ages, waiting for an avatar, a Messiah, a Christ to come. Inevitably such a life does show up. He will often come in a way not expected, in a situation unforeseen and be a character not like that envisioned. He will teach that which was not anticipated, ignore foundations held sacred and build on others held in low esteem. He will honor those rejected and ignore many held in great esteem.
All true disciples take the path less traveled by when that is the path that leads to the next step humanity must take.
May we all find the Christ giving birth to a new consciousness within us at this time so we can recognize the servants of the Master when they appear.
“A good conscience is a continual Christmas.”
— Benjamin Franklin (1706 – 1790)
