Teacher: The Beloved.
Subject: “Fear Is the Great Temptation.”

Message received by Lytske.

The Beloved: “Today we will delve a little deeper into the concept of ‘fear,’ and what it represents. There is fear everywhere; fear of growing old, fear of losing one’s health, fear of the future, and fear of losing loved ones. The list goes on and is seemingly endless. Each person harbors their personal known, unknown, and unreasoned fears, until they are confronted with them.

Fear is the great defrauder of inner peace, and it can attack your spiritual, emotional, and physical well-being. Illness results when it is allowed to get out of hand. Fear imprisons the real self, so the spiritual seed-soul neither grow nor does it flourish. Fear is evil. Fear is a temptation, preventing the human being from growing in trust and confidence in the over-care of the Creator God and in all celestial beings entrusted with their care.

Fear is the denial of the God-Fragment within. Fear causes depression and can make people contemplate and commit suicide. Fear is lack of courage to be honest with oneself – to be truly discerning about what is being feared. It is the long downward spiral into a dark damp pit, at the bottom of which lies paralysis and hopelessness of the human spirit.

The human spirit is designed and created to soar. God gives you life, faith, and trust as wings to practice with. You strengthen these wings with your growing confidence in the unconditional loving over-care of the Giver of all life.

Humans carry the seed of an abundantly rich soul within them, but very few realize that this great gift dwells within themselves, due to a lack of faith and by letting fear run rampant. Take hold of yourself, and turn within as soon as you feel fear holding you in its icy grip.

Know that I am here, always waiting to steady you and give you My peace. Say aloud: ‘All is well,’ and believe this.

Grow into a greater faith and trust in the goodness of God.”
