An Island of Light, Peace, Harmony and Balance.
A Thought Adjuster Speaks - # 140
May 15, 2004
Dear one, today let Me talk about ‘self-willed-ness’ and the ego.
In your path to self-mastery, these matters need your intense scrutiny. When you sincerely desire to do the Will of the Creator with a glad and joyful heart, then you need to be vigilant in your self-examination, because often the ego also plays a role.
Self-will and ego are like identical twins and at times hard to separate. When something bad happens, and because of the aftereffects, you may need to think: ‘how could I have handled this better, or how can I behave better next time.’
Often there is no next time, which gives rise to guilt, regret, resentment, anger and more. These are all spirit poisons.
Impatience is a great curse, especially in speech. Harsh, hurtful and untrue words can never be recalled and they echo throughout eternity.
Words can very deeply wound tender hearts, because self-will being out of control, often together with an immature ego that needs to have the last word.
Yes, I know that oftentimes it is a very fine line to walk, often in supposed self-defense. Ponder these words, My beloved, for these are two great areas to practice self-discipline on the way to self-mastery.
Just for one day, moment by moment, live consciously and check your reactions to others. Are they coming from love or are the coming from hastiness and impatience?
In sincerely doing the Will of the Creator, you need to tackle your negative traits, and in so doing you are becoming an island of light, peace, harmony and balance in an utterly stressful and dark world.
Earthly certificates and diplomas are of very little significance in eternal life if self-mastery is not practiced.
Come to Me daily for nurturing, help and further instruction, for that is why I live within you, to help you grow into all you can be in eternity.
