Teacher: The Beloved One.
Subject: “A Lesson on Stillness.”
Received by Lytske.
The Beloved One: “Stillness is a requirement for a happier life. Stillness presents you with an inner peace, providing you are willing to ‘look your personal short-comings in the eye’ and demonstrate a desire to better yourself for your highest good and the highest good of the universe. In this way everyone and everything is blessed by your efforts. It takes self-knowledge, and by this I mean that you must be willing to notice that there are areas in your life you can improve upon. Stillness is not only a tool to worship your God within, but it also allows you to recognize where you can improve, and so acquire wisdom through this experience. This is not an easy road to begin with, but in time it yields many incredible blessings. Importantly, you learn to accept yourself as a beloved child of the Creator God, Who loves all of His offspring equally – His created children and His evolving creatures.
“This is how all the universes of space are evolving and peopled. You have realized by now that you are not the only planet in existence and in time you will realize that the universe is really a friendly and loving place. You are not yet well enough evolved to realize this, as some of your under-developed minds in the cosmic consciousness area, still insist on fear-mongering and speak about weaponry for space. I beg to ask the question, ‘What on earth for?’ The universe does not allow warfare among its planets. The spiritual hierarchy only desires for you all to grow out of your ‘sand box’ stage and take your place as worthy cosmic citizens, who can welcome their neighbours from other planets.
“I tell you that sitting in the Stillness, and connecting up with the Spark of God within, is precisely what mortals do on other planets. They all desire the connection with the All That Is. Many of them are much further progressed along this path of having acquired a clearer vision of the All That Is, while others are about at your level and there are some who lag far behind, not unlike some on your planet. Everything, however, works out for the ultimate good of all concerned. The ones further ahead are those who have gone beyond the warmongering stage. They have become more peaceful. They have in their times of Stillness realized the folly of their ways in that the most beneficial Source of all creation is all-loving and all-forgiving. It is the omnipotent, omniscient God, Who desires to come alive in all His seeking children.
“It is the very personality of that Great Being, which yearns to intimately be connected in the inner life of all His myriad creatures. This would be the culmination of His yearnings that you would feel more at home in the universe when you finally realize that you are not a cosmic orphan and no longer alone, but part of an enormous and most loving organization. Do away with your selfish superstitions and grow up to accept each other as brothers and sisters, first here on this planet and then in the infinitely wide cosmos. You are all equally loved and respected, so set aside all of your differences and recognize each other at your spiritual root source. The tool thereto is Stillness meditation, which each of you can use to come to a greater understanding through insight leading first to worship and then to wisdom. These too, are God-given Gifts. Discover these Gifts within yourselves.”
