And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him: And he opened his mouth and taught them, saying… ~Matthew 5 1-12
In Matthew 5:1-12, the Disciple expounds on how so many people heard the good news of an extraordinary teacher, this God-like man Jesus Christ, throughout Galilee, Decapolis, Jerusalem, Judaea and from beyond Jordan and came to hear him.
Jesus taught the multitudes according to their capacity. As I mentioned in the February Ah-Man Newsletter, we all are at different places in our spiritual journey. An Illumined One can teach everyone at whatever level they are on.
When the crowds gathered at this location, He spoke to them. But then he went up the mountain, and it is there he spoke to his followers. He spoke to about 24, it is said. These were followers who have sincerely followed his teachings and because of that were at a different place than the masses.
Jesus gave them more than just verbal teachings. An Illumined One sets a divine atmosphere in which just being present elevates one and can give one Spiritual Emancipation. By their very presence, those teachers, avatars, Liberated Ones, bring about an understanding of Love and peace.
I am sure we have all experienced this with someone on our journey; where just being around them brings about peacefulness.
