Teacher: The Beloved.
Subject: “Forgiving and Forgetting.”
Message received by Lytske.
The Beloved: “Let us discuss forgiveness. To practice forgiveness with compassionate understanding towards the perpetrator, at the moment when the act occurs, is truly divine. Such a trait is heaven-inspired.
One Person among you mastered this while still in the flesh. Jesus did all this as a human. He developed such a deep level of understanding during His life as a human, that He could say, ‘Father, forgive them for they know not what they do’, while nailed onto a cross. Thus, He can truly be called the Son of Man and the Son of God.
He came to this world as a helpless babe, and in growing up He experienced much hardship when at the tender age of not quite fourteen His earth father, Joseph, died through an accident at work. Jesus, as the eldest son, had to take His place as the head of the family of seven brothers and sisters. At that time the youngest had not yet been born. All this prepared Him for His life as a Healer and Way-shower for all seeking souls wishing for a better life.
A life of ease hardly prepares a mortal for a God-seeking and a God-loving existence. They are the vicissitudes of life, which propel a mortal into the waiting and loving arms of God.
It is in the inner, reflective life where true soul-growth takes place, as a desire develops to live according to the divine blueprint which was ‘seeded’ in you at time of your conception. This is the third deciding factor in that moment for a new life to begin, when the egg and the sperm find each other.
It has been very little understood on this planet, that prospective parents are co-creators with God. Never underestimate the creative power of this divine factor, which shall so unerringly carry you Paradise-ward, if you so desire.
Everything depends on your willingness to be guided into the doing of the will of God, and to answer His command to become perfect, even as He is perfect. So, in time you will learn to say, ‘What is God’s will for me today?’ In following this inner guidance from Me, your unseen Helper, you will learn that God’s way is far better than your way, and His choices improvements on your choices. However, you will always have the prerogative to choose for yourself.
So, you will always determine the level of co-operative partnership you are going to have. Forgiveness is a divine trait to develop and master. With this level of forgiveness, forgetting is automatic, for the two go hand in hand.”
