Teacher: The Beloved.
Subject: Welcome Him into Your Heart.
Message received by Lytske.
The Beloved: “To develop a heart that welcomes the Ruler of a universe, telling Him that He is always welcome to stay and rest a while, is in truth, a reciprocation of the love He has bestowed upon you during your existence.
Slowly you are becoming aware of the fact that He also desires to be welcomed by His children, without being asked for help for one thing or another.
It is a sure sign of growth, even in little children, when they reciprocate with love as they sense a need in their parents. A true bonding springs up between parent and child, a genuine trust-bond and a deep understanding for the needs of others which will serve the child forever as he or she goes forth to establish that same understanding and trust-bond with his or her brothers and sisters
It represents the acquisition of harmonious character traits and a growing balance between the lower creature self and the higher God-self. It is the recognition of the needs of others, and being available just by ‘being there’.
This is true friendship. It does not give advice unless asked for, but it is being available as an oasis in a storm, asking nothing in return. This is really the beginning point of altruistic service, and a great move towards selfhood.
I perceive that this sounds totally compatible with your yearning for understanding as to what it is to be a good friend. Your Master Jesus said, ‘He who would have friends is to show himself friendly’. This was the example He set when He walked upon this earth.
Welcome Him into your heart, and invite Him to come and rest a while at any time, and when you have no need for anything.”
