The Beloved One.
Subject: “Breaking Free.”
The Beloved One: “This lesson in a somewhat different vein is to show you how to break free from your spiritual inertia of your long-held beliefs, which are not totally true. It is when you open your mind that you let new insights come. The more you get used to opening your mind, just a little further to let ring the truth bells deep within you, the more you are breaking free of long held thoughts and habits which no longer serve you.
“This breaking free pertains to the urge in your soul to grow God-ward. It represents ‘the shaking loose of old shackles’, which have held you so long in bondage of fear, and ‘the way things have always been done’. You will dare to break free from your habitual tendencies to let your thoughts run through the familiar channels, so you are no longer afraid to entertain a greater truth in your heart and mind.
“Habitual thinking is regressive, turning the life you are living into the mundane and humdrum. Like the Master stated, ‘Search all things but save the best’. Of course you would not go searching for the ways to demoralize your soul. This is a given. In all manner of things seek to do the will of God, and in keeping yourself occupied in this manner, you will be led into ways which will break you free from your spiritual inertia.
“Such is the path of the ones who desire to increase their God-given light within. It is always your choice and freedom as to which path to pursue, but once you realize which path leads to a higher and better way in life, you will choose the way with the most love in it, which helps you to grow heaven-ward. This is the meaning and purpose of life -- to do the best you can in order to become the best you can be.
“It is the perpetual urge from Paradise which draws you God-ward and helps you to break through your reluctance to explore the higher things of value and meanings, without being stifled by former conditioning. In this manner, life offers a much greater freedom, a deep inner feeling of joy, and a rightness of life itself. In this way you will discover that all the lessons you are walked through have a much higher purpose than you could ever imagine -- a purpose which will become clearer with each of the many following stages of your eternal existence.
“It is your very goal to break free into becoming the perfected you”.
