Ramtha the Enlightened One is a Master Teacher who learned to transcend the limitations of the physical world and humanity in the dynamic times he lived long ago. His mission is to teach others what he knows. JZ Knight started channeling Ramtha publicly around the country and abroad beginning in 1978 and continuing through the 1980s. Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment (RSE) was established in 1988. Using ancient wisdom and the latest discoveries in neuroscience and quantum physics, RSE teaches students how to access the extraordinary abilities latent in their brain and the tools to Become a Remarkable Life.
What is honor? Everyone cherishes that word. Everyone wants to somehow be honorable. It seems to be a noble and befitting way to be. I will tell you what honor is. Honor is when you don’t play games and simply are your ulterior motive. That is being impeccable. That is not necessarily beautiful but it is impeccable. Being honorable is being up-front. There is no mishmash, no gray area. There is no maybe. There is no hot and cold or one day you are on and the next day you are off. There is no instability. When you are what you are at this time in your time that is being honorable and indeed impeccable. To waver off of that is to be unimpeccable.
Can we find truth then in the axiom that there is honor among thieves? Yes, there is. Can your enemy then, your most awesome enemy, be closer to you than your lover? Absolutely. That is what I call an impeccable person. That impeccable person, I will jolly well enjoy their presence. I am very picky about who gets into my presence, because when people have ulterior motives you always have to deal with their soap opera. Like a soap bubble, they are changing colors and are filmy and never want to really know. You always have to entertain them or not talk to them at all because they are not impeccable people. They are not who they are. They are pretenders. They are an imitation and are not genuine.
Honor is when you don’t play games and simply are your ulterior motive. That is being impeccable. That is not necessarily beautiful but it is impeccable. Being honorable is being up-front.
There are a lot of disingenuous people sitting in this audience hearing this message. You are disingenuous because you don’t live in your life what you have learned here. You are disingenuous because you take what you have learned here and use it as a pretense while all along covering a rotten nature and your ulterior motive. That is why you are not consistent in this school. Soapy, soap-opera people are never genuine. Genuine beings I enjoy and engage because we have a true interaction with them. They have nothing to hide, and when we engage, they engage from a truthful place. When they learn, they learn truthfully, not soapy learning but real learning.
This is no different than at the light review after death, because at the light everything is uncovered. The soap opera is shown right in front of you, and you are all players and see how disgusting that was. The one thing that you take with you from the light review, as the personality aspect of the great self, is feeling that you dishonored yourself — flat-out dishonored yourself — and as a result you manipulated, were insincere, and untruthful to other people.
I used to call lies creative truths, and they still are creative truths. Creative truth is to avoid the motive. When you are what you are, you never, ever have to protect what you say. You never have to worry about what you say because all of your thoughts are written in the energy around you, just as if they were written in the sky above. You never have to worry. If one hundred thousand years from now those thoughts, that ulterior motive, comes back to you, you will feel no shame for it because the motive was not disingenuous. It was a motive evolving. It did not make a lot of people succumb to it. It wasn’t using others and it wasn’t abusive; it was genuine. That is true evolution.
I want you to understand how important decisions and choices are in your life.
If you dig up fossil remains of present-day animals, you will see that there is a modulation, a change, in who they were ten million years ago versus who they are today. If we look at those remains, we do not say, “That is bad. That was a mistake. We are much better off today with this one.” You do not see evolution in those terms. You simply see the fossil from where it was in its past to where it is today. You see through geological age the evolution of that species and we celebrate that it changed. It gives us hope for ourselves. We never look at what it was and condemn it. We only do that if we are disingenuous.
In our light review after death, if we are honorable people we are going to see our honor. We are going to see that we lived forthrightly what we were and had clear boundaries about it. It is going to become obvious who we were and how it affected everyone. Most certainly it took unique people in your life to live as an honorable person, but by the same token you to them were the spark of honor in their lives. So what are you going to view as God when you look at the consequences of every action in the light review? Think about this. You are going to become the person who mirrored to them that honor, and in that moment you are going to feel their honor. It may not be the epic point of evolution but it is the point of evolution of that life. It solidified; it was real. And honor, those who are around us can only be with us because we are that way. They can only love us because they love in us what they love in themselves — that poignant truth, that honor, that nobleness. It may be backward but it is real and tangible. It has substance. It is not illusionary. When you love an illusion, it only says that you are one yourself. That is why it never lasts. Relationships based upon illusionary love are an illusion and both participants are illusionary. They never last. It is like vapor; when the sun hits it, it dispenses. When real heat comes into the relationship, it dispenses because it is an illusion. It is ulterior motive to ulterior motive and soap in between.
When the choice is so natural to you and it is common thought, then you have made it. Until they are made that way, they will never be real choices and the unfinished business in the soul will lie there still unfinished.
I want you to understand how important decisions and choices are in your life. I am not talking about choices over which you grandstand. When you grandstand a choice, you have never made it. When the choice is so natural to you and it is common thought, then you have made it. Until they are made that way, they will never be real choices and the unfinished business in the soul will lie there still unfinished.
What does this do for the pressure in your chest that no amount of wine, drugs, women, men, and no amount of money, perhaps, has ever been able to remove that hurt? You have tried it all, and the hurt was there because of a missed choice. Is it possible to have redemption from something that you have missed and have the pressure removed from your life? Absolutely, for what is then redemption but a choice well-placed? Redemption comes by enlightened choice. Everyone has their issue with the soul, their conscience, and you can’t hide from it because it is you.
Who then decides destiny? Destiny is not about some alien God that has strings on you manipulating you. That is superstitious, primitive thinking. An honorable destiny is made by self-organized, enlightened choice commonly experienced. It is up to you.
