Revised April 30, 2015
Transcribed by Kathryn E. May
I would like to tell the story of my life as Jesus. I am Sananda Kumara. This is my spiritual name – my soul name. When I came to Earth, I was given the name Yeshua ben Joseph, but those who knew me when I was young called me Emmanuel.
I will tell you many things that do not agree with the story of my life as it has been told in the Bible. Some of these corrections have been published in my New Scriptures, which were also transcribed for me by our trusted scribe, Kathryn, who has agreed to take these messages and present them to the world until I am able to come to you in person, and we will teach them together. Some of the basic information also appears in her book, “Who Needs Light?” However, I will now complete the story by writing my own biography.
I do this not because I care about whether people know me or not, but because of the implications it holds for my teachings. I do wish to bring accuracy and clarity about the message I intended to carry to Planet Earth, and it seems that now is a good time to do that.
I will try to give you a picture of the basic elements of my life, and I will touch briefly on my fundamental beliefs, which are far more simple and consistent than the Bible stories would have you believe. I came to tell of my love of God, of the wonders of God’s Creation, and to teach that Love is what truly matters in life, nothing more.
I was born to my mother, Mary, in the spring (not December 25th). It is true that she was a young woman, and that she was told by Archangel Gabriel that she would have a child who was sent directly from God. The energy of Mother/Father Creator was the source for the formation of the human body, which was created in my mother’s womb, so it is true that the infant body was not conceived in the usual way. Joseph, who became the true father of the child I came here to be, was a good man of great Faith, and accepted the responsibility for the care of me and the children who were to come later to our blessed family.
It is not true that I was born in a manger, or that my parents were poor. Joseph was a fairly prosperous farmer, and we were surrounded by close family and friends. We lived comfortably and were afforded a good education. I had a brother, James, and a sister, Martha. Later, we were followed by a young brother whom we called Simon. I was also surrounded by close cousins, aunts and uncles who oversaw our growth and well-being, and who took pleasure in our company. One of my closest friends and schoolmates was Mary Magdalene. She was the love of my life from our earliest days.
Now, it is important for all of you to know about the formation of my identity, because it will tell you a great deal about the tremendous Love God feels for humanity, and it will give you a glimpse into the workings and plans of the Company of Heaven.
The person and the life you knew as Jesus Christ was planned carefully before it occurred. It was intentionally designed with the foresight that such a life would bring enormous change and hopefully a new understanding of God’s True Way. It was intended to raise the consciousness of the population of Planet Earth, which was mired in the struggle against Darkness. Planet Earth was nearly overwhelmed by waves of invading Dark Ones, who incarnated over and over and monopolized the power and wealth on the Planet – as they continued to do until this past year, when the Galactic Councils were finally able to come to the aid of humankind in a more direct way.
At the time I came, more than 2000 years ago, it was with the intention of beginning the Ascension process that was to usher in the New Golden Age. We knew it was a difficult challenge, and we wanted to assure our success by creating the situation that would offer the best chance of success. It was decided that I would incarnate as the soul who would join with the baby Yeshua. Since it seemed too difficult a task for one lone soul to accomplish, it was suggested that we create a more powerful entity by joining forces with another soul, or perhaps two other souls, who would merge together to become one in life.
This was the creation we agreed upon. I was to be joined in the body of Yeshua by my dear Brother and fellow Starseed, the one you know as St. Germain, an ancient soul of the Kumara lineage, like me. We were then joined by the one who is known to you as El Morya, whose identity has not been fully revealed until this day. El Morya is in fact my dear and trusted Brother, whom you call Ashtar. We felt so comfortable in our Love and Trust for one another that we were reassured by the knowledge that no matter what this life might bring, we could manage it together. I would be the “lead soul” and would take responsibility and be the namesake by which the person of Jesus would be known. It was a great comfort to me to know I would be so supported.
Our hope was to bring Light and Love to all. It was also planned that Mary Magdalene, who was to be my lifelong partner and wife, would be the incarnation of my Twin Soul. Our intense love and attraction for one another as Twin Flames would allow for the strongest possible bond and would provide the balance needed to create an equally powerful female partner. It was important to Mother/Father Creator, in agreement with the Galactic Councils, that female energy be fully represented as well.
Mother/Father God, our loving Source and Creators, were intimately involved every step of the way. They oversaw this Project, which was to bring the Christ Consciousness back to their beloved Mother Earth and her suffering humanity. So you see, there are no coincidences and no accidents in the planning of events that are chosen to unfold on your planet. All is carefully planned, although free will on the ground does not always allow for the perfectly predictable execution of our plans. In this case, it took more than 2000 years for our carefully laid plan to come to fruition.
My childhood and education was a happy time, a time of preparation and expansion, for I needed to become used to the experience of cohabiting in one body with two other intelligences. We fell into step with one another, as we had always done. My memory of my origins and my mission was not complete in the beginning, but it became clearer as I grew. I studied and traveled, yet always returned to my family and to my Mary.
I felt such Love for my family and for my beloved Mary that our destiny together was absolutely clear. We were married in a joyful celebration in the bosom of our family in Nazareth, and began our life together. We were devoted to our family and to each other, and were dedicated to bringing Light and Truth to our world.
Mary accompanied me on some of my trips to other towns, and our home became a gathering place for conversation. I did not think of myself as a teacher or lecturer. I simply shared the deep Love I felt for God and humankind. I knew the profound respect and affection of our Mother/Father God and the Ascended Masters who had been my friends and teachers in the eons before my journey as Jesus. I was absolutely certain that the representation of God as an angry and punitive judge was utterly wrong. I also knew there was no hell, no fire and brimstone and no real Lucifer or Satan.
I wanted to bring the message of Love and forgiveness to all I encountered, but early on I began to feel the intensity in the reaction from anyone who was close to a position of power or influence over others. Their resistance to my story of Love was clear, insistent, and based in the fear of losing something they felt they could not let go of. This negativity was not limited to religious leaders of my own faith, who did not easily relinquish their image of an angry and vengeful God. Rather, the resistance and negativity I encountered crossed religious and philosophical boundaries, and it sometimes came from unexpected sources.
The more I shared my message, the more I began to see that people in any position of authority feared it because the message inspired personal freedom and independent thought in a way that challenged all forms of authoritarian control. People began to flock to the gatherings, especially when I brought the power of Mother/Father God to heal the sick and to soothe those who felt bereft at the idea of coming to the end of life without any hope or understanding of their place in the Universe. So many were fascinated and relieved to hear my affirmations that yes, there is an afterlife, there is the possibility of reincarnation and God is Love!
Yes, I did talk about my own memories of life in higher dimensions, where all life is guided by Universal Laws, where peace reigns and where one can learn to create with their own thoughts and intentions. In the higher dimensions, learning goes on in the most expansive and unlimited ways, and the mysteries of space and time are easily understood. Angels are indeed real, and souls can be forgiven for all life’s transgressions and can be helped to learn a higher level of understanding, along with a greater closeness with God.
I also taught that it is our responsibility as intelligent beings to respect and hold precious our blessed Mother Earth, Terra, who provides all and who nurtures all upon her breast.
Humans, animals, all the creatures, plants and sacred places on her surface deserve our protection and respect because they are as much the expression of God as we are. I did not eat meat, nor did I encourage the raising and slaughtering of animals of any kind for food. With attention to the particular needs of native plants in the dry Mediterranean climate where we lived, the cultivation of fruits and vegetables provided a rich bounty, enough for all.
These were my simple teachings, and I talked to everyone who would listen about the glory of life when Love is put above all else. Of course, this came in direct conflict with the Roman conquerors whose civilization, for all its cultural advantages, was firmly founded on war and conquest. Thus, my message of Love, while it raised hope and comforted many, put me at odds with the authorities across the region.
My friends and students in turn taught the message of God’s Love wherever they went. Occasionally, they took notes, and Mary Magdalene recorded some of our teachings in a more formal way in her graceful, clear language. Those writings have been mostly hidden, revised or re-translated to present an entirely different perspective – one which engenders fear, want, and feelings of entitlement. Mother Earth was described as a force to be conquered, and God’s Love was shaded with contempt and arrogance.
Our simple and direct Aramaic was twisted into dense and contorted parables. I did enjoy using parables to make a point, but where I was quoted, my explanations for the examples I gave would be left out, and the result became a murky and contradictory version of what I had actually said.
This is my reason for giving these messages to the world at this time: to help those who felt the truth of my message find their way back to the simple pleasures of knowing who you are, where you came from and what life is really about.
Throughout the Universe, life thrives. We are not alone, nor are we the most advanced civilization – far from it. Our Brothers and Sisters from the Stars are here in the skies above you, waiting patiently to be of help with the most important endeavor a being can take part in – the Ascension of the entire population of the planet. With this lifting of all souls to higher dimensions, we will also experience a lifting of energies throughout the Multiverse, for this is a Universal and a multi-dimensional process. It is the destiny, the inner drive of all lifeforms – this evolution to higher dimensions – and you are a part of that process, every one of you.
Now I must return to the story I promised you – the story of my life. Mary and I continued to live and teach near our home. During that time we had two children, a boy and a girl, and lived a life as nearly idyllic as a family could experience, for a time. We had a fairly prosperous family farm. (I was not a carpenter; I was a farmer). It was a simpler time, and we were generously supported by our families and our community, so that I could travel, do our healing work, and continue to spread our message throughout what is now known as the Middle East and beyond. Our beloved friends welcomed me warmly, cared for us and our children with great love, and made it possible for me to share our message widely.
I was completely devoted to my beloved Mary, my love, my inspiration and the center of my life, as I am still. We have remained as Twin Souls, even as we have continued our long relationship with Planet Earth and her beloved humankind. We have both incarnated since, and she is in a body now, as are most of your Ascended Masters – especially the female counterparts who are here to usher in the Age of the Feminine.
It warms my heart to share with you here, as I have through other messages, that my Twin Soul is Kathryn. It is important to include this information now because she is not only the center of my own heart – in this lifetime she carries and embodies the Christ energies, as I did in the Jesus lifetime. For us both and for us all, Kathryn is carrying the codes that fulfill all we set in motion long ago. Much of her work has needed to be kept relatively quiet until the proper time, which is now. Our focus remains unified on the freeing, healing and Ascension of Earth and all upon her. (More of our story is shared through Mother God in the Addendum she has given Kathryn, which is included here and with the New Scriptures.).
You are all familiar with the supposed end of my life, when the forces of Darkness within both the Jewish community and the Roman governance aligned to persecute me as a traitor and a troublemaker. They put out the warrant for my arrest. I was alerted, and it was apparent that the inevitable would come to pass. I was to be made an example, in order to quell the growing foment against the oppressive Roman rule.
I called my beloved family together. I did not call them disciples; they were my close friends and fellow travelers, my trusted companions. None was more loyal or devoted than my dearest Brother, Judas, as you call him. I called him to my side to talk with him about the impending confrontation with the Roman soldiers. I asked him to go to them and to tell them of my whereabouts in order to avoid a search-and-seizure melee, which would have put my entire family in danger.
He carried out my wishes faithfully, as I knew he would, for he was the incarnated Soul of Light, Archangel Gabriel, son of my beloved Brother whom you now call St. Germain. My dear and steadfast Brother, Archangel Gabriel, was Judas, and he was the one who took on the role of Lucifer. He never fell from the Light nor did he ever sever his connection with our Mother/Father God. He was and is the Bearer of the Light of God, as his name represents. He did not then nor has he ever had any real identity as the fantasy thoughtform creation the Dark Ones called Satan. There was no bribe or betrayal – he loved me then as he does now, without reservation.
And so it happened that I was taken into custody, given a brief and prejudged trial at the hand of the autocratic Pontius Pilate and taken to be tied up and yes, nailed with spikes, not to a cross but to a large tree. I was not given the honor of being put on a cross, contrary to the later contrived history. That was generally saved for wealthy and important people, and it would have increased my notoriety.
Now I will acknowledge a part of the story that has been difficult for me to talk about. The soldiers also arrested my Mary, and she suffered the same fate as I did. We were both unceremoniously stabbed in the heart.
The whole procession and “execution” carried little of the drama or pageantry of the Hollywood version. It was a stark demonstration of cruelty and raw abuse of power. We were tied to the tree; nails were put in my feet and hands, causing great pain and anguish to both the tree and to me.
We were able then to leave our bodies, calling upon Creator to protect and sustain us, and we put our bodies into a deep coma state, which you might call suspended animation.
We, the souls who had inhabited these bodies until then, were able to ascend into higher dimensions, even while we tended to the bodies’ care. We kept the thread of life alive until our bodies were taken away, and with the care of our beloved mother and friends, we were later resuscitated.
Yes, I did later meet my friends on the road, and I appeared to Paul, too, after I had spent a short time recuperating from the wounds, with the exquisite ministrations of my miraculous Mother Mary and Sister Martha. I did not leave the planet then. No, I lived on.
Our family traveled to France, where we were welcomed and protected, and where we were able to provide the education and safety our children required. It was there that our third child was born, and Mary Magdalene established her own mystery school. We later traveled to Turkey and the Far East, where we were also welcomed.
I felt a strong connection to Buddhism, and I wished to unify the teachings. I desired to include many of the tenets of Buddhism in the messages I passed on – especially the emphasis on creating peace by making peace within; the concentration on the inner search for freedom and truth; and the use of meditation to reach a higher vibration and connection to God.
It was in Tibet that I found the mystical and mythical places where Heaven and Earth meet. There are portals there to Inner Earth, and the monks have studied the deep healing techniques and quiet practices that allow them to live for hundreds of years. I remained with them for extended periods during my eighth decade of life, in perfect health.
It was a long and fulfilling life, filled with rich companionship and, especially in my older years, with quiet contemplation in the embrace of God’s Love. I returned from my travels to be with my Beloved Mary in our last years. We remained in France, with occasional sojourns to England and Scotland, until my natural death at the age of about 86. Mary followed me very shortly afterward. We felt at the time we had begun an awakening, yet we were aware also of the campaign of Paul, who called himself an Apostle, and took it upon himself to create a new sect, Christianity.
I had not intended to create a religion. I only wanted to bring the message of Love and Light, which would have illuminated the world’s existing religious teachings. Ours was a straight-forward message – which, if left to flourish and spread, would have created peace on Planet Earth, or at least it would have established a bulwark against the flood of Dark Energies that came with the increasing invasion of the Archon Alliance including the genetically modified Reptilians. However, as so often happens, it turned out to be those who professed to be supporters who created the most lasting distortion of our teachings.
When Constantine ordered the compilation and publication of the Bible of all my available teachings, the result was anything but accurate or complete. His intentions were politically motivated. He wished to control the burgeoning growth of what was then being called Christianity – the recognition of the Christ Consciousness on Planet Earth. The Emperor saw the threat of allowing Light to filter throughout his far-flung and increasingly unmanageable Empire.
Joy and Peace insulates people from propaganda and fear-mongering, and the belief in a glorious afterlife in the presence of God tends to make them fearless in their resistance to being controlled. Allegiance to family, community and to God dilutes one’s loyalty to any political entity, dissolving artificial boundaries and national fervor. The priesthood, which was a powerful entity in its own right, aligned with Constantine’s needs because it was in their own benefit to maintain the power of Patriarchy-as-religion.
And so, the document you call the Bible was created. The Old Testament set the tone with emphasis on wars, competition and vengeance. The picture of God it painted combined the teachings of the most narrow and violent sects of early Judaism – designed to align with the later writings – most of which were doctored, redacted, reinterpreted and redesigned to create the confusing, contradictory picture of the angry, judgmental God you now find there.
The concept of “sin” was introduced into the writings, and along with the picture of a Satanic anti-hero, lifted from the fearsome folklore that had been used by parents to subdue their children. Guilt and shame centered around the control of sexual practices and obedience to an external, punishing God. This “God” was indeed a reflection of the perfectly controlling Emperor, but it bore no resemblance to the God who was my Father of Creation, my own loving Creator.
I will say definitively, a child cannot be born in sin, since an infant is a completely innocent Light, untouched by Darkness, a pure soul in the process of beginning a new life. Creating a child is a holy act, blessed by all in Heaven. Nothing an infant could do could be in any way associated with sin or evil.
There is one remaining travesty which must be addressed here, and which must be healed before Mother Earth’s people will be able to live in Peace. That is the idea that Christianity is the one true religion. I do not, and never have, taught that I was the final expert or the only son of God.
We are all children of God. No single person or set of teachings is The Last Word – superior to all others. There is only one Source/Creator, the Creator of all Creation in our Universe and others beyond. No individual or religion has a direct line or a preferred standing with Them. They are our Mother/Father Source, and all are equal in their eyes.
So, you see, the idea of a religious war is an absurdity. Every soul on Earth and throughout the Multiverse has an equal place in Their hearts, and an open line to communicate, without the need of intermediaries, priests or channelers. You are each born with the ability and the desire to be connected to the Love, protection and forgiveness of our Creator. To do so will bring only joy and deep fulfillment to all.
I will not offer you detailed descriptions of the people and places I encountered in my life. Those elements are not important, except to confirm my Love for humankind and my close attachment to my family, wife and children. I am not the subject of the teachings God wished to bring to Earth. I was the vessel for our Creator’s message of Love. The events of my life are important only as they illuminate what we stood for and what we taught others. Our message was changed profoundly when the crucifixion was invented as the centerpiece and focal point of my life.
The image of my body hanging on the cross is indeed a constant reminder to all that you too will be punished for believing in me and my teachings. It is a gruesome threat, and it wipes out joy. This indelible image alone has done more damage than all the words could possibly do to discourage exuberance, celebration and Faith. It elicits sadness and dread, depression and hopelessness. What comfort can one really take in the statement, “Christ died for your sins?” I must tell you now: I emphatically did not.
My punishment at the hands of my persecutors did not defeat me, nor did I die. Neither my life nor my death had anything to do with sin – yours or mine. I came to Planet Earth to represent the embodiment of a good and loving family, which obviously had nothing to do with celibacy, to teach through living among others and to lift the hearts of those who had been downtrodden and subjected to unfair political and financial practices. The abuse of power was nearly as rampant then as it is now, although the means of robbing the poor to give to the rich has become more effective and efficient in recent times.
Many people seem horrified to read the channelings from me and also from Mother/Father God which include extensive political content. I wonder why they would think that my teachings could be separated from the conditions under which people live, and the oppression which causes massive suffering and deprivation.
People who are suffering oppression have little energy left after struggling to survive and are more vulnerable to further oppression. They also have a harder time keeping their hearts filled with Love and their minds open to God’s message. It is our intention to help lift the conditions under which people live as well as the state of their spiritual lives.
I was also a healer, as I am still. Physical suffering caused by illness and disability has long been aggravated by poor diet, overcrowding and toxic environmental conditions. I wished to alleviate the unnecessary pain of physical illness because it tends to leave people exhausted and desperate. They do turn to God for solace and healing, and once they do, I want to bring them the relief and joy that comes with healing. This is the reason we are working with so many Lightworkers who are healers now.
It is time for all of Mother Earth’s beings to heal, and for Mother Earth to restore herself after the millennia of abuse at the hands of humankind. It is time for the Grand Awakening to the Truth that all are One. There is no individual, no animal, no tree that is not inherently connected through the fiber of their being to every other being. A tree feels pain when it is cut; it deserves to be honored and respected when it is used to build a house. Better yet, the technology to completely avoid the use of forest products is available and will soon be brought to Earth by your Galactic Brothers and Sisters.
What sort of thinking is required to cause an entire civilization to deplete and devastate its home, the source of all they need for survival? I believe it is the same Darkness that feeds self-hatred and hatred of others not like oneself. That festering hatred has flowed throughout the relationships between humankind and their companions on Earth, creating a poisonous atmosphere in which animals turned on each other and began to fight and eat each other. As the vibration of Love courses across the planet, lifting hearts and minds, the animals will respond by feeling and behaving as brothers to one another.
Eventually, all the Kingdoms of Earth will join humankind in harmony and Love, and eating one another will be a thing of the past. Human bodies are evolving to be nourished by a vegetable and fruit diet, and the animals will change along with you. It has already begun, for both humans and animals.
The same pervasive effect applies to your weather, for the consciousness of humankind stirs the same violence in the weather patterns as it does in the Animal Kingdom. Mother Earth is now accomplishing her cleansing and restoration to the pure Eden of her beginnings. Humankind will either be disrupted and overwhelmed by the violence of her reactions, or you will raise your vibration higher by the day, thereby mitigating the effects of her self-protective actions.
I tell you these things about the current developments on Earth because, you see, my work with humanity never ended. I passed from the experience of life in a body in the 3rd dimension directly to the 5th dimension. Understand, I did ascend, taking my body with me, just as you will do. This part of the Biblical story is partially true. It was called a resurrection, which is not as accurate a description as Ascension. I not only came back to life, but I later raised my body with me into higher dimensions. Those of us who have accomplished this will now have a body available to us when we wish to return to Earth, without having to go through the birth and childhood process.
I offer you this brief outline of my life to reveal to you the most destructive of the ideas which were presented as if they were mine, as if they represented the Truths as they apply to our Mother/Father God, our Creator, and their relationship to us. There is much more I could tell, but I wished only to point to the most egregious falsehoods – those that created the biggest distortions to the Truth of our relationship to Mother and Father Creator and the Company of Heaven, all of whom are here to assist you now in your coming Ascension.
I suggest that you read this autobiographical message in the context of the earlier channeled messages from Mother/Father God, who have given you a much more extensive and detailed description. They have been channeled by our dear Kathryn, and the compilation of these helpful messages is called “When God Pinched My Toe.” They provide you the opportunity to feel how we work together with other Ascended Masters to accomplish this glorious and historic Ascension process. You will hear the Love in their voices and the Truth of their words, which are completely in alignment with my own.
I believe you will come to feel the great Love we have for you, and the Love I have carried in my heart for all these eons. When others had given up on the humans of Planet Earth, our Faith and Love remained strong, and we have now been proven right in our Faith that together, we will realize the Dream and accomplish the greatest challenge ever undertaken in the history of the Universe.
I Love you all. We are One, inseparable as the wind and the leaf, forever and always.
I am your Jesus/Sananda, together with all the Company of Heaven.
