Glenda Green is an internationally recognized portrait
painter and art historian. In 1989, her husband had a dream that Glenda
was to paint a portrait of Jesus Christ. The possibility intrigued her,
but it took nearly two years before she decided to undertake such a painting.
After months of study, research, and contemplation, she felt frustrated
as to how to proceed. She prayed in her studio for guidance.
Glenda describes what happened next: At that moment, a presence
entered the room unlike any Ive ever experienced ... Although He
was transparent, there was a radiant glow, and He displaced the air so
conspicuously that I could see currents of pressure-waves rippling about
eight feet in front of me. Was it the Holy Spirit ... or perhaps a special
angel? ... later experiences and insights were to reveal that it was the
Master Himself, in pure spiritual form.
The Presence called my name, though in no human words I know, and
then shot a beam of energy from Himself to a point between my eyes. I
presume He implanted something into my optic nerve, for a radiant
picture projected before my eyes. It was an exact visual prototype of
the painting to be done.... From that moment forward, my life has
not been the same, not even in the smallest way ... After that, the events
day unfolded perfectly as they should, and each hour of work was a living
dialogue with the Master.
Glenda Greens book, Love Without End: Jesus Speaks*, is the result
of the Master Jesuss four-month visit to her studio in Fort Worth,
Texas. Glenda was interviewed by Share International co-worker Betsy Whitfill.
Share International: From 23 November 1991 until 12 March 1992, the Master
Jesus appeared to you in your studio so that you could paint His picture.
Could you describe the experience of having Jesus visit you?
Glenda Green: It was amazingly comfortable. Prior to this, I had thought
that being in the presence of Divinity, or in a higher realm, I would
feel inadequate or unworthy, conditioned as I was by the various dogmas
of the Earth. I was surprised at how much the Master extended Himself
to make it OK for me to be exactly who I am, and what I am.
We talked about sacred things and ordinary things, and He seemed to express
an equal interest in anything that interested me. There was not only an
absence of judgement, but also an absence of any predisposition to judgement.
This is the most important thing to communicate. There was nothing too
insignificant for Him to deal with, nothing too major for Him to reveal.
SI: Jesus spoke to you a great deal about love. What is love and why is
it so important?
GG: Love is what, literally, makes the world go round. It is what created
the world. Love was the first manifestation of existence, prior to which
was simply the unknowable. Of all things that can be known, love is the
ultimate and the primary. It exists on the cusp between the unknowable
and the knowable.
Love cannot be defined. It is the definer, coexisting with the Creator
and all creative forces. Therefore, it is the closest thing, within the
knowable, to the power of existence. It is a proto-energy that
which motivates things into being energetic.
SI: You wrote that Jesus urged that people be love. Why is
it so difficult?
GG: Because people confuse love with attachments. This is why the Masters,
through the ages, have focused on releasing attachments as a primary mode
to ascendancy and soul fulfilment. Its not that we are to
disattach in order to live in poverty, or to have nothing, to have no
gratification of the senses or no experience of desire. The root meaning
of desire is of God. Without desire for the higher life, you
dont reach the higher life. The only reason to conquer desire is
to conquer the association between love and attachments.
SI: Jesus talked to you about the mind and its structure-creating capacity
obscuring love. Could you explain?
GG: The mind is binary, as is any computer. It is a recorder of data;
it integrates data and makes comparisons. This enables us to evaluate
and make choices, but the mind builds polarity in thinking. Love is the
great primal integrator which sees the oneness of things. The mind is
a powerful and valuable servant.
The Master never diminished the importance of developing ones intelligence
through education. But because the mind is binary, it has to be a servant.
That which is primary is singular. The heart is the hub of the wheel of
life the singular point, and love resides in the awareness of singularity,
through which we can comprehend unity. Singularity and unity have to be
proprietary to be above binary considerations.
Structure can be created by anything, from Divinity to the lowest motivation
for survival. It is just an organizational pattern for purposes of predictability
and order in life. Thats all. You have to know where to
place structure in your life. You must realize that it is derivative.
Structure doesnt create anything; it is a created form. Just as
the mind is secondary, being binary, structure appropriately placed is
a derivative form. Even original Creation, as structure, is derivative.
God preceded the Cosmos.
SI: Jesus spoke to you about economics, saying that structure creates
the illusion that expansion is the only route to power and glory,
and that collapse occurs when nations over-extend, over-specialize
natural cycles of compression. Is this relevant to todays
world economic situation?
GG: Yes. We have expanded so far away from natural order that well
have to reconnect, compress, willingly or through collapse. Historically,
it has happened time and again to great civilizations. This great principle
at the back of everything. We can avoid the pain of this coming collapse
by intentional compression. Jesus stressed this. If everyone who can do
so gracefully initiates the process, we increase the ratio of probability
that the entire world can do it.
SI: You wrote that sharing leads to prosperity for everyone. Could you
enlarge on this?
GG: It is such a simple, self-evident principle, its hard to enlarge
on it. We build walls to protect our proprietary stuff ideas and/or
property. These walls eventually cut us off from receiving. An idea which
served me well five years ago may not necessarily nourish me today. Had
I shared my idea years ago, I would have new ideas coming back to me today.
The proprietary concept must be as fluid as is life if it is to be valuable.
SI: As individuals we may be able to understand sharing to some extent,
but on national and international levels there tends to be resistance.
Did Jesus have any suggestions?
GG: The Masters definition of morality is change for the better.
Some nations are locked into their history and are unwilling to see a
future which brings change for the better. But there are things on the
horizon which will make life so much better than anything existing in
history, that the clutching hand of the baby will eventually let go of
SI: What do you see on the horizon?
GG: One thing would be the new science, and another international communications
(Internet) which are so free and so fresh that people can have a sense
of liberty without having to pack up and leave their homes or
countries. When freedom becomes an option for everyone, youll find
it to be an irresistible commodity.
SI: Jesus also told you that So much love energy is being poured
on the Earth now, it will shatter some needless structures. Love
GG: From three sources. One is Divinity itself, because the will of God
is that the greatest good be done. Another source is from all beings who
have arrived at Christed levels of awareness, who are radiating tremendous
amounts of love. The third source will actually account for the crash
thats about to happen, but this collapse will not be externally
Throughout the history of human evolution we have been building structures
more to compensate for our unconsciousness than our consciousness. We
have governments and military to keep the tigers out, not to manage what
we have. However, during the long evolution of consciousness, we have
been increasing in awareness. Now we are at the point where our consciousness
exceeds our unconsciousness. This consciousness will itself destroy the
structures which unconsciousness has built to deal with the unknown. It
is a natural evolutionary process.
The Master said that is why it has been predicted by every race of man,
every religion throughout time. I would call it humanitarian love, the
ability to do the greater good regardless of the price. We will choose
the greater, and the lesser will disappear. I think were virtually
there now, but everything ebbs and flows.
SI: Is this the great healing Jesus told you is to come?
SI: Do you think the imminence of this transformation influenced the timing
of Jesuss visit to you?
GG: Yes. I think the whole message was intended to expedite this process
for those who can benefit from His reinforcement.
SI: Did He say anything about His return?
GG: Not really. I did ask if He would be coming back soon. He said: Soon,
but not in the framework that others would see for me.
SI: Since Jesus is Teacher for the Christian Church, what message did
He have for modern Christianity?
GG: I did not notice any difference between His words to me and His ancient
words to the Earth except that there was clarification. Traditional Christianity
is not, for the most part, operating from His words but from
the dogma imposed on His words. Hes very pragmatic and to Him there
is nothing more practical than living a spiritual life. He sees no separation
between the physical and spiritual.
The souls fulfilment is not different from fulfilment of a human
life. When we understand where structure belongs, well rise above
competing dogmas. Dogma is just intellectual structure. Thats why
He said: When you know the truth, the truth will set you free.
People erected dogma to compensate for what they did not understand, to
complement their ignorance not their wisdom. A study of comparative religions
shows that all religions create dogma, and that is the difference between
them. Their wisdom is all the same.
SI: Did Jesus refer to any of the great Teachers, like the Buddha?
GG: Only once. He said: The reason I am here is to assist you in
knowing the Father. If you worship Me and know not the Father, then youve
taken the wrong pathway. So you can see what has happened. At that
moment I wondered if this would also be true for Buddhists, Muslims, Hindus
and others, and He said: If you know the Buddha in order to know
the Father, then you are not lost. If you know the Buddha only to know
the Buddha, then youve taken the wrong pathway.
SI: What is the most important thing Jesus told you, and how did it change
GG: Speaking personally, He helped me transcend my persona and restore
my relationship with my Source/Creator. I feel a greater connection to
everyone and everything. As a consequence, I am able to do this work.
SI: As you travel around speaking, how are audiences responding?
GG: Believe it or not, Ive been invited to give the Sunday service,
in the pulpit, to more than 20 Christian denominations and other nondenominational
churches. People respond tremendously well. Ive spoken to New Age
groups, but they are wary of my introducing dogma. Once they know the
breadth of the message, theres a tremendous response.
SI: What are your future plans?
GG: Ill be writing two more books. The Workbook will assist in a
deeper understanding and will allow me to bring in other aspects of this
message. The other book, called Gunnar Glow Star, The Cat Who Saw Christ,
will be for the child in us all, to distil the pure essence of the message
from innocent perception. Ill be doing seminars to help others develop
the work. There are study groups forming now around the country, which
think are very important.

Quotes from the Master Jesus in Glenda Greens book, Love without
Blessed are those who live in moderation, for they shall inherit
the earth. Moderation is the economy of God and the economy of blessing....
As Heaven comes to Earth, the standard of economy will be that of moderation.
It will not be necessary for one person to hoard and another to starve.
Sharing will become a joy as you learn that everything you share will
become the basis of your own receiving.
When the heart is in the proper relationship to God, and the master
of ones life, then charity occurs as a natural aspect of sharing.
There are no structures that cannot be superseded by love.
Kindness is the heart of living. It is what makes life bearable,
meaningful and delicious. Division is the instrument of all
Any prayer asked in love, or honoring love, will be answered, although
your Father has no covenant to answer the prayers of your ego, to solve
its self-made problems, or to make its fictions result in happiness. Your
Creator is one with reality, so how can He answer a prayer that seeks
further separation from the love and the reality that He is? Even if He
were willing, how could He? When you pray to be strengthened in your
understanding of reality and your competence with it, your every prayer
will be answered and often dramatically.
The realization of love restored can come in a thousand ways ...
a peaceful heart, a dance step in your walk, a childs kiss, or a
glistening spring morning. What it universally means is that the love
of God is present. If love appears to vanish for a while do not worry:
it only seems that way, so that you will seek it again. Love is a mystery
the greatest mystery of the universe. Love is your true Self, which
springs forth from God, the indefinable everlasting fountain of existence.
There is no explaining what or who will ignite the fire of love within
you. There is also no explaining how you, in turn, may light the fire
Behold infinity every day, and all that you seek shall be given
