And the other point, perhaps the fifth, but I don’t want to put
it … it deserves its own piece of paper. It deserves its own
thing, because it’s another evolution you’re going through.
It’s actually a dilemma. It’s a dilemma. It is what I call the
guru dilemma. What does that mean?
It means that here you are, beings that are becoming enlightened and allowing that to come into your
everyday life; spiritual beings on a spiritual path; generally getting over the whole concept of having to get
to know yourself so you can finally be yourself, you see.
LINDA: Two m’s?
ADAMUS: Dilemma. Two m’s.
And you have a certain archetypical concept of this thing called enlightenment and guru, and it’s very
distracting, because you put this as the Standard or the example, the shining light in your path and say, “I
have to be like that. I have to be – in order to be my spiritual self – I have to do as the gurus did.”
Just like we talked about before, dismantling this whole concept of getting to know yourself, it’s also time
to dismantle the whole concept of the guru that you’re aspiring to be.
Let me give you a few examples, and as I do, think of what your guru dilemma has been. What did you
think, in the human mind, that you had to be like? Because I’ll tell you right now, it’s not really what you
need to be like.
Yeshua, Jesus, since we’re right in the middle of his celebration. Just think of the energy of Jesus for a
moment, the ones that you were taught when you were younger. Calm, peaceful, healing, walking on water,
as I proved today anyone can do, halo above the head, long hair, beard, yes. Sandals, robe. Yes, absolutely.
Sheep, little sheep. (laughter) My dear friends, as humorous as it might be, this is the image that you had.
Now, the real Yeshua? The most impatient human I had ever met! Absolutely, totally impatient, had no
patience for stupidity, for rules, hated organizations, didn’t like time, didn’t like dawdlers. Why? Because
underneath, even though he was not a souled being, he brought in so many of the aspects or the energies of
you. And impatient – “Let’s get on with this!”
He was known to brawl. Boom! Punch right in the face. Down on the ground brawling. This isn’t in the
Bible, is it? It wouldn’t do them very good, you know, they thought, to put this in. He liked to eat a lot. He
got a little pudgy later on. He got a little hm (Adamus gestures “large”) thing going.
He was known to cuss and swear. There were a lot of people that were afraid of him. He was a rebel, a
revolutionary and he was intolerant. (Adamus chuckles) A loving being, totally compassion, but absolutely
impatient. That’s not the nice portrait picture that you have of him, but this is what many aspire to be. “I
have to be … what would Jesus say?” Jesus would say, “Get the fuck out of my way!” (lots of laughter and
applause) Sorry. I apologize for being so irreverent, but it is …
LINDA: No you don’t!
ADAMUS: It is true! It’s like “Move aside, we’ve got work to do. We’re here to seed this Earth with the
Christ consciousness, the Christos, the crystal consciousness, for a new age that’s coming about. Move
on with it! Move on! Get off to some other planet, go someplace else, because this is a place where we’re
growing and expanding.”So he was quite a revolutionary. And no, they didn’t write about that, because then
what would happen? Everybody would try to be a revolutionary, the organizations, which I don’t like, couldn’t handle that.
Think about dear Buddha for a moment.Dear Buddha. I was talking to him the other day, as a matter of fact.
Not to drop names or anything, but … (laughter) “Buddha,” I said, “Buddha, we’ve got work to do.”
Buddha was neurotic, phobic. He had phobias, a lot of phobias. There were certain types of insects and bugs he
was just deathly afraid of. He was neurotic. He was always having to clean his hands and his feet all the time. He was
very selfish, in the bad meaning of the word selfish. He stole energy from everybody. “Oh, here comes Buddha.
Get out of the way. He’s going to try to steal energy.” And he could never settle into anything. He had chosen a nice
rich family to be born into; he couldn’t settle into that. He had demons going after him all the time. He was perhaps
what you would call a multiple personality, flipping back and forth, as a lot of the neurotic people do – one minute
holy man, next minute total jerk. And he would be offended if there were certain things you were wearing
or certain odors coming from your body. So he was very difficult to get along with it.
Later on he chilled. He relaxed a little bit. He had this neurotic obsession for enlightenment and just starved
himself to death to get it. Actually, he starved because he was phobic about a lot foods. He just wouldn’t eat
them. If anybody even looked at a food that he was going to eat, he couldn’t eat it.
Finally he relaxed. He gave up trying to find himself, trying to get to know himself. He relaxed. That’s when
he started eating. He gained some weight and he finally had the enlightenment that he had always wanted.
He melded with himself.
So, guru? Is that the picture that was painted? Is that what you see when you go to the sacred temples? No,
you see the very peaceful Buddha. But he wasn’t.
And – not that this next one is an Ascended Master, but he’s an interesting study – Steve Jobs. Steve
Jobs, somebody from your era – brilliant, driven, totally insecure. Absolutely insecure. One minute very
obsessed about the project he was working on, and the real project actually was technology tools to expand
consciousness, interconnectivity to share, to actually expand the consciousness of humanity. That was kind
of implanted in him. Brilliant ideas.
He was a visionary who had this mental/creative melding a long time ago, but totally insecure. Always
questioning. It got tiring after a while. “Am I doing the right thing? Am I going the right way? Should I have
done it this way or that way?” Wasted a lot of energy doubting, worrying all the time.
So, dear friends, ah, here’s another one I just happened to be taking a walk with the other day – St. John
the Baptist. Crazy man. (laughter) He was a lunatic! Another good example of a multiple personality; one
minute screaming and yelling to get the demons out of people, pushing their heads under water. He used
to drown people. It wasn’t baptism! It was called murder! (laughter) Later they change it and said he
was baptizing. It’s like, “No, he’s trying to kill the bastard!” (more laughter)
And the next minute very pious, reverent, asking God for forgiveness. Well, I would have too if I had done
all that bad stuff. Down on his knees.He was a mad man! His hair was a mess. His beard
– filled with food from years ago. He didn’t bathe himself. He and Buddha would have never gotten along.
(laughter) They would have had a hard time together.
So let’s bring this to the point so we can get to questions and answers.
The guru dilemma, your dilemma: who do you aspire to be like – any of them? (audience says “No”) Or yes.
Or yes. In other words, they had human characteristics because they’re here on Earth as humans. They have
what you would call flaws, but they’re actually not, they’re just idiosyncrasies. And so do you. You’ve been
trying to get to know yourself and perfect yourself, make yourself just this pure, holier-than-thou human.
They didn’t do it. Why should you? They had disturbances! Issues! Challenges!
What eventually caused them to be Ascended Masters? (audiences members say “Acceptance,” “They let
go.”) Acceptance, let go. Everybody should get an award. I don’t know if Linda brought enough. But they
They let go of this need to try to define themselves, to find themselves, to know themselves, to improve and
perfect themselves. They came to a point of exhaustion – anybody feel a little connected to that? – a point
of exhaustion, of saying, “This search, this desperate search, is exhausting. I’m just going to give up. To hell
with this whole spiritual path and all of its books and all of its workshops and all of its accoutrements and
everything else – to hell with that! I’m done! I’m done!”
In that moment of acceptance, then it came together. Then they had a good laugh, every one of them.
And then it didn’t matter. It didn’t matter that they weren’t perfect, because they were never going to be.
It mattered that they accepted. It mattered that they loved themselves, quirks and all. Bad bank accounts,
overweight, stupid little tics or strange things you do, your bad temper, your impatience, your lack of real
… no, your lack of – Cauldre messed up my timing – your lack of real understanding of the spiritual being
that you are. You get over all that. You go into a place of acceptance.
You could say it’s surrender, but it’s only surrendering to you. It’s not surrendering to anyone else or anything
else. It’s not surrendering to the guy that’s on the cross – too bad that they put him there – it’s surrendering
So let’s take a deep breath with that.
Whatever you think is flawed, imperfect, whatever you think are the things you have to work on, forget
about it. (someone says “Yay”) Yes. Yes. (audience approval and applause)
And then, suddenly, you’re just being. You’re not trying to perfect anything. You’re not trying to find
yourself. Now you’re just being. In that, the creative energies that we talked about earlier rush in now.
“Good! This person’s no longer just trying to figure it out. They’re just doing it.”
The creative energies rush in. The mind can slow down. The need to try to make things right or perfect
or in some sort of delusional ideals of old gurus goes out the window. That’s when you can sit here today
and say, “I am the Master. I don’t care what they say, I am the Master. I am the Master.” (audience says “I
am the Master”) It’s that simple. That simple.
But then the mind jumps in, and it will by the time you leave this parking lot, and say, “Well, if you’re the Master,
then you can walk on water also.” (laughter)
