The Beloved One.
Subject: “The Effort of Faithfulness.”
Received by Lytske.
The Beloved One: “Although you have no idea of what the subject might be, you fully expect a message to be forthcoming. It proves your expectation of my being faithful to you, and it proves your being faithful to me. Allow me to tell you that everything is according to God’s plan, for you are steadily moving forward in your listening skills. It is in the inner world where the fastest growth can happen if the creature is willing to listen. It is my observation that people are willing to spend large sums of money so they can learn from an outsider how to contact their God within. I tell you right now that all have been born with the ability to quite alone accomplish that task. One does not need to be ‘spoon-fed’ by others who have done the work for themselves. It becomes far more soul-satisfying if humans will individually discover the Gift of their innermost selves, which entails, needless to say, some hard work. Nothing of value is ever gained if one is handed this Gift on a silver platter.
“The greatest satisfaction and soul-peace is gained by those whose lives have been forged between hammer and anvil, experiencing what they boldly chose through their free will and decisions. Even though some things appear to happen because of the mistakes of others, there is always a lesson in it, somewhere, which can lead to greater insight, even though this might not be immediately apparent. It takes a lot of living, and inner recognition that everything is always well. Mistakes are of value for the simple reason that one can learn from them so they don’t need to be repeated. Therefore it is befitting to each human with a normal thinking capacity to consider that they have the power within them to change their life if they are not happy. They don’t need to be told how and why to connect up to the living Spark from God within them. All they need to do is go into the Silence and persevere. It is they who need to make that decision and no one else can speak for them.
“It is their responsibility to make that connection, even though it is helpful to at times get pointed into the right direction by those who have blazed the trail before them. Ultimately each mortal is responsible for making their own connection to God, as no one else can do it for them. This is the only short-cut you can make. Visiting your places of worship is only good for social interaction – to be with kindred spirits, who are also trying to make that all important connection to the All That Is. This planet is on the cusp of a grand spiritual awakening, and the best way to proceed is to turn within to commune with the indwelling Spark from God asking for your daily directions as to how best to do Gods will. After that, simply allow the day to unfold according to his will – the way with the most love.”
