Transformation Through “I AM” By Jacob Glass
“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by
the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good,
and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
– Romans 12:2
Not only does the ego speak first and speak loudest, but it also is most at home and adapted to the denser vibrations of the earth realm. It does not rise above the victim consciousness that dominates the physical plane and so the systems of the world are built around what it believes and teaches. Practitioners become very frustrated, angry and depressed when they begin leaking and spewing out their energy seeking to “change the world” rather than changing their Consciousness within the world.
This is not a giving up in frustration nor a “conforming” to the ways of the world simply because “this is the way it’s always been.” Rather, it is the understanding the any REAL and lasting change can only be the result of a change in Consciousness. Again, this is not a “getting rid of” but a TRANSFORMATION. Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother TRANSFORMED the pumpkin into a coach, the rats into horses, the mice into footmen, the rags Cinderella was wearing into a ballgown. And it was not done by magic, but rather by Cinderella’s CONSCIOUSNESS. It did NOT come from the wand of the Fairy Godmother – it came from Cinderella herself – from a Power within her, but not of her. The Fairy Godmother IS the Christ Consciousness, the Divine Presence brought forth by the BELIEF Cinderella had in Divine Possibilities beyond the current appearances. The Good Witch in The Wizard of Oz IS Dorothy’s own Christ Consciousness revealing Itself to her.
Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother told her “I AM going to take you to the ball.” Notice she did not need a prince to take her to the ball or to save her or to give her what she wanted or needed. The great “I AM” within her is what transformed her world and took her to the party. Through this great “I AM” Consciousness her world was not fixed or gotten rid of, it was transformed. Jesus did not say, “fear not for I have FIXED the world and gotten rid of all the problems, put the right people in power and smote all your enemies, plus gotten everyone to agree with your way of thinking and doing things” – He said, “fear not, for I have OVERCOME the world.”
This is an act of Grace that comes through our willingness to stop trying to reconcile the irreconcilable. We soften and detach as we place our trust in the good, acceptable and perfect Will of God, which is our happiness. Cinderella did not earn her way to the ball, did not fight her way in, did not sneak in, wasn’t legislated in, did not stage a coup or get a boob job to attract her way in. Instead, she abandoned entirely all the ways of this world and any tendency to conform herself to the insanity of a completely insane thought system. Instead, she rose up in her Consciousness to the “secret place of the Most High” and transformed her victim consciousness to Grace Consciousness in which she was not given a “strategy” of how to MAKE her dreams happen, but was instead lifted above the insanity and carried by love through the clouds to the place where every seeming limitation is laughed away by the power of Grace.
