Teacher: The Beloved.
Subject: “Guideposts of Inner Growth.”
Message received by Lytske.
The Beloved: “A pure and trusting heart that comes in joy to the Creator of all is always sure of a loving response. It is the way of gladness that despite outer circumstances, the soul still has a song to sing. As well, the Creator always and likewise, enjoys the elevated state of the soul.
You have begun more clearly to recognize the Spark of God within. You also have begun to realize that the Beloved within is known to each individual soul by Its own name. Although the name does not matter, the reality of Its existence does.
Therefore, the more often a mortal turns inward into the Silence, the more he or she partakes of that immortal Gift from God. In time such a life will exude that indefinable fragrance as it learns to discern the still Voice and to follow Its leadings.
The saturation of divine love of the Creator is always reciprocal to the love of the human creature, although this may not always be perceived as such by others. The self is very ignorant of its growth. He or she can only discern this on looking back over their lives’ paths.
Is he or she happier? Has life contributed to discernable growth like strength of character? Has he become more tolerant and loving towards others? Does she sincerely try to discern the God of all creation in all others and accept each man, woman and child as her kin?
These are some of the guideposts of inner growth and development. Progress is noted by one’s following of the leading of the inner Voice, and not the voices of the world and its temptations, which clamor to enslave the soul in the form of addictions and more.
Persevere in your daily habit of coming to Me to commune in the Silence of your heart, and keep your eyes focused on the Glory of God.”
