Teacher: The Beloved.
Subject: “Fleeting Material Needs and Wants.”
Message received by Lytske.
The Beloved: “It is truly helpful to contemplate all the ways in which you are blessed. This teaches you to forget your wants and instead shifts your focus to what has already been manifested.
The real need is always inner growth toward a higher level of living through increased understanding and love towards each other.
Material needs and wants are fleeting. Of course, there are real needs, but the attitude towards these needs can be changed, so that there will neither be any self-pity for seemingly being short-changed, nor jealousy toward another.
Real freedom from needs and wants comes only by living in faith, knowing that you are a worthy child of an all-powerful Creator. Believe that He who created the heavens and gave all the stars their places and knows them by name, can equally well take care of you.
A lot of poverty is created by fear of poverty. Worry and fear attract poverty and this often sets a cycle of poverty into motion, because that which you think about, you attract.
When you count your blessings and start thinking abundance, this cycle shifts then into a higher gear, according to the law of attraction.
Of course, this means thinking honestly with sincerity and truthfulness. Never prostitute your inner soul-self by being dishonest in the gathering of unearned wealth at someone else’s expense.
Each honest bit of work is worthy of recognition, and this is always recognized in heaven.
The state of the soul is the most precious possession in all creation. Nurture your soul in honesty and sincerity, not out of fear of punishment, but out of love for the Creator. He gives you all those life experiences through the Gift of free will, so that you can choose how you will live your life.
Always remember to turn within to count your blessings, and to confer with Me, your Guide.”
