It is not wrong to wait for a Messiah that will stop hatred and fear forever. The mistake is to expect Him to come outward.

— Sean Dragon

The Savior

Humanity was always waiting for a Savior, since the beginning of history. A Messiah who will redeem us from all our tribulations.

The concept of the Messiah exists in almost all religions, and in some of them, the Messiah has already come. But the modern human only redeemed does not feel yet. On the contrary, several times this human need for salvation has become a means of exploiting, manipulating and oppressing people by the various clergies. Result; More guilt, misery and bondage than redemption and happiness!

Obviously, something is wrong with this concept. I think this lies in the origin of the Messiah.

No Longer Slaves

The tremendous Spirits who have passed from our planet, like Jesus or the Buddha, with their divine message, have told us that every change can only come from within us. The great Master Gandhi has said: "Be the change you wish to see in the world."

We must never forget that our lives are the result of our choices. So in most of the cases, the trials and tribulations of our lives have their source in the choices we make, therefore from these choices, we must "be saved".

Therefore, waiting for someone to come to save me, mainly from my own choices, is a clear example of spiritual (and not only) laziness. I will not act, but someone else will do it for me. That's not the case!

Lord Have Your Way In Me

All the great Spiritual Masters have spoken of our Divine Self, for the God within. The Creator of the Universe and Love had provided us with the Divine Flame, with which He gave us the ability to create our world as we wish it. We let this flame waste away, over the years, because of our spiritual laziness, but a spark always remains, which fortunately it can never extinguish. Whatever we do, it will continuously burn within us and remind us of our origin.

This spark we must feed again, with Love and positive thoughts. We must feed it by following a new way of life in which goodness, offer, service, and smile will prevail. A quest for the magic you can live when you decide to give without expecting any reward. If we choose to live this magic, against the way our modern world seems to work, then this spark will begin to illuminate the world from within us, and it will unite with the corresponding sparks of our brothers and sisters who are trying the same. Their union will re-create a flame, and this flame will become a fire that will spread to the world and will burn hatred and fear. Then each one of us will become a Messiah for himself/herself and the world.

i-welcome-the-messiah

It is our responsibility; nobody else’s. It is a challenging task because it needs a lot of Spiritual work to break the rust of matter that keeps us away from our happiness, but it is our onus to do it. No one else can save us from ourselves.

Let us, therefore, abandon the excuse of the outer Messiah and let's take our life in our hands. In fact, it is the only way we can help our loved ones. If we really want to offer them happiness, we should become the example for them. We have to show them the way through our own improvement. When they see Love changes us into beautiful and happy people, they will believe that they can do it themselves.

So let's do it, let's choose Light and Love. Let's become an example for our loved ones, and also let's become part of the flame, the fire, and part of the Redemption of this world which was made to be the Paradise.

I am becoming the Messiah I want to see in my world.

That was very deep and enlightening. I will be reading it for the second time to decipher the meanings better. Amazing, deep and inspiring indeed !

Audrey Hunt from Idyllwild Ca. on October 05, 2018:

A message worthy of every brother and sister to follow. Thank you, dear Sean. We must be the change that we seek in others. We must live the example of pure love and light. We are God's children and as such, have a responsibility to be as God-like as possible, in our thoughts and actions.

I'm saving this article because it inspires me so. I feel the need to refer to such wisdom often, to help me to be a better person each minute of every day.

Blessings and peace go with you now and always.

Hi Sean, Gandhi's words are true...be the change you want to see. Spiritual work sounds harder than the word work alone. Thanks for sharing.

wonderful message.

Ioannis Arvanitis (author) from Greece, Almyros on September 30, 2018:

Yes, my brother John, we should strive as best we can to emulate the teachings of wise men like Jesus, the Buddha and Gandhi. How accurate is your phrase! This is the essence of my text. Thank you for your kind words, I always treasure them.

May Love embraces you!

Ioannis Arvanitis (author) from Greece, Almyros on September 30, 2018:

No, my dear Mary, anything but lazy I consider you are! I can see that you are an active Warrior of the Light! Thank you for your feedback.

Respect!

John Hansen from Queensland Australia on September 29, 2018:

Brother Sean, what a wonderful and much-needed message to us all. Don't wait for a Messiah to come and save the world but each be a Messiah for ourselves and the world. We should strive as best we can to emulate the teachings of wise men like Jesus, the Buddha and Gandhi. Blessings.

Mary Norton from Ontario, Canada on September 29, 2018:

I count myself among the lazy but thank goodness, the Light is always there even if only a spark and just a little attention to the spark brings light. Time to get out of this laziness.

Ioannis Arvanitis (author) from Greece, Almyros on September 29, 2018:

No apologies brother, the rest were right enough!

manatita44 from london on September 29, 2018:

Well, I forgot Jai Sean! Accept my apologies.

Ioannis Arvanitis (author) from Greece, Almyros on September 29, 2018:

I love your comment, my beloved brother, Eric! You have the most cheerful way to encourage me every time! This is what I call a Spirit of living Love!

Gratitude my brother!

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on September 29, 2018:

Whahoo. That "space" of surrender, the only way to a true peacelove. I love to think and I love not to.

I call this article bitchin cool and groovy. And what great songs and comments. Our brothers and sisters are volcanoes spewing forth a light of molten burning love.

"

We let this flame waste away, over the years, because of our spiritual laziness, but a spark always remains, which fortunately it can never extinguish. Whatever we do, it will continuously burn within us and remind us of our origin."

A mantra worthy of practice.

Ioannis Arvanitis (author) from Greece, Almyros on September 29, 2018:

Thank you so much, my beloved brother, Tim! Your comments are always like a big brotherly hug for me, they are significant!

When you have some time take a look at my previous Hub "A Community of Love", I have a dedication for you.

May His Light guides you!

Sean

Tim Truzy from U.S.A. on September 29, 2018:

Excellent article, Brother.

This is powerful and so true:

"...this spark will begin to illuminate the world from within us, and it will unite with the corresponding sparks of our brothers and sisters who are trying the same. Their union will re-create a flame, ..."

Spiritually, fire is a great purifier. It represents His presence as well. (Moses and the burning bush, for example.)

Inspirational and instructional. You have given us a gem of wisdom to help us live in this world, Sean.

Much respect and admiration,

May God bless you for your service and kindness,

Sincerely,

Tim

My dear beloved Brother, Manatita, this is so magical! When someone like me writes down a piece of his Heart and someone like you comes and adds to this a piece of his Heart, merging it with Love and Light, it is magical! Thank you for the improvement of my Hub, my Lantern! You are so right!

Jai Guru! Jai Christ! Jai to the Absolute Supreme!

manatita44 from london on September 29, 2018:

What a sublime quote, my Brother. I keep saying the Heart … the Heart … the Heart … it seems to be almost unreachable for a few, not knowing that once the fire is ignited from within, then everything else follows and blend as one.

You video is very beautiful and illustrate the point well. I am afraid, you are afraid, we are all afraid, because we see other forces as trying to attack our ephemeral possessions.

We feel reverential fear and not Love, so we are afraid of being the water that flows into the sea. We feel that we would be submerged, not merged in order to become alive. We wish to taste sugar but fear becoming the sugar itself.

Of course fear exists on many levels and for some it is truly deep-rooted. In Guruji's philosophy, fear, insecurity and ego are truly big enemies of freedom. Their by-products of unworthiness, guilt and self-doubt are incredibly strong.

By God's Grace there is a remedy: prayer … prayer … prayer … nothing can be done without Grace. For its descent, we need to serve, offer gratitude … sacrifice, which helps the Heart, so we become receptive to the Higher Light. Nothing is possible without Grace, Hence we need to be willing and malleable vessels of its Light.

A well-written, hopeful, promising and invaluable Hub for us all. Jai Guru! Jai Christ! Jai to the Absolute Supreme. In a simple way, glory to God in the Highest and on Earth, Peace to all sentient and non-sentient beings. Salaam!!

Louise Powles from Norfolk, England on September 29, 2018:

That is lovely to read. I agree with everything you said. We must take responsibility ourselves and treat people with love and kindness.

Ellison Hartley from Maryland, USA on September 29, 2018:

Love this! So true, we all have to work to be more like Jesus, to treat others as we would like to be treated and to live sending out positive vibes, love, and kindness. Thanks for another great read!
