Effectively Casting the Net

“And He said unto them, cast your net on the "right" side of the boat and you shall find what you are looking for. And the disciples did, and they were unable to draw in their Nets for they were filled with a multitude of Fishes.” ………. John 21:6

In the life of Ascended Masters such as Jesus, we always look for the miraculous to confirm their elevated state as people with the highest level of spiritual consciousness. They in turn perform miracles not as some cheap trick to confirm their status but to convey deeper meaning that could elevate the consciousness of all who witness such miracles, especially their closest disciples, but also for posterity through recorded sacred history. The words in the Bible are important when it comes to understanding the full implication of any event or message. If Jesus wanted to just perform a miracle, he would have simply said “Lower your nets again and you will find what you are looking for” but he says “cast your net on the right side”. This is the second time that Jesus performs a miracle involving catching fish and hence it had a very specific purpose.

In the first miracle, the capacity of Jesus and through his teachings, his own disciple’s capacity to move from the physical level of catching fish, which is a resource for physical sustenance, to the new ascended level of harnessing Christ consciousness to augment their own higher consciousness, is being highlighted.
This is the reason that Jesus says “………, even though you do not believe me, believe the miracles that you may know and understand that the Father is in me, and I in the Father.”
……….. John 10:38
Being in the Father is being at the very source in which true likeness we are created. This is the purest form of Divine or Cosmic Consciousness.
He also confirms that anyone can achieve this higher level of spiritual consciousness and even exceed the level from which Jesus was operating. For he says “I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.” ……. John 14:12

The second miracle happened after his resurrection and when the Apostles and disciples were at their wits end to understand the mystery of Christ. They were waddling in the muddy and murky waters trying to find some meaning in the events that have taken place. They had an idea of a physically invincible Christ and this miracle is to tell them that they are fishing for meaning in the wrong side. They would be able to find answers if they start to fish for understanding in the “right” side of their own consciousness. “They were unable to draw in their Nets for they were filled with a multitude of Fishes.” The meaning conveyed here is that comprehending the full Christ consciousness is a Herculean task and this realization is portrayed by the act of Peter recognizing Christ on the shore.

Love to you all
