Thought Adjuster: “The intention of a human being to become similar to God is realized by the effective alignment of the human will with the will of God. If you want to know how close you are to living a life consecrated to the will of God, you just need to determine how many of your decisions and actions have been made with the highest and purest intent, with your mind and your heart firmly aimed towards the goal of eternity.
“This consecration is only possible in those who stop to think about the consequences of their decisions. Acting in an impulsive or non-reflective way limits your options because you are depriving yourself of the opportunity to use your spiritual resources to determine your own destiny. In all circumstances, it is always possible to take a moment for reflection and to consult your Thought Adjuster regarding the best course to take. The important decisions in life should never be made in haste and nobody can force anybody else to act without the opportunity for deliberation.
“An important step in the path of spiritual progress is self-mastery. At the beginning this is just an increase in the ability for self-observation and to be always awake and aware of the actions being performed. Life would be so much joyful and satisfactory for many if they only used their wisdom and had the presence of mind to seek the advice of their Divine Sparks before they act.
“Do pay attention to the way in which you react to certain situations. Forget your haste and take all the time you need to make a decision. Once you have chosen considering your highest principles and values, move forward with courage and leave the outcome in the hands of the Father. This is how a human soul is forged for the work of eternity. This is how the trust between man and God becomes stronger and real.
“Let your intention be always oriented towards truth, beauty and goodness. Let it be guided by unconditional love and let this high and enlightened intent be the force that determines your destiny. This is truly the slow but sure path to perfection.”
