Teacher: The Beloved One.
Subject: “Just Come With an Open Heart and Mind.”
Received by Lytske.
The Beloved One: “Open your heart and mind to the Creator, but do not expect anything. Be as a newborn baby; not expecting anything and yet trusting that everything will be there to satisfy all needs. This is the utmost trust a mortal can show the Creator: To become as a small child, washing itself clean in order to be presentable to its grandparents, who would accept him or her anyway, as they love the child unconditionally.
“Why am I beginning today’s lesson like this, you wonder? Well this is a good introduction to expectation, because I desire for you to grasp as well as possible at your level of understanding, how God sees His children. There is an innate need for every little one to be understood, and to feel safe and secure in its own environment. Every child should be able to expect this safety and security.
“However, life on this planet is far from ideal and in need of correction. What if a child has been denied this safety and security? At these earliest tender moments in life, when it ought to feel wanted and welcomed, already its concept of trust is being warped and unhappiness ensues. Every little one has the right to feel wanted and safe, otherwise its co-x matrix (core of being) begins to grow out of balance and the child will begin to fight for its needs and wants.
“Expectation, and glad anticipation that something wonderful is going to happen, is the eternal hope which can spring up in the human heart. It is one of those hidden gifts, which through negative circumstances gets pushed into the back of the mind. It becomes difficult to retrieve so blockages begin to form deep within the human psyche, and people forget what pure hope feels like, what pure expectation feels like, and how to look forward to the days ahead with glad anticipation.
“Life has become mundane because they expect life to be humdrum. So they spice up their life and look for outward entertainment with which to keep their minds busy, and they forget their own inner world and richness of thought. Even tiny ones are already placed in front of the television and other forms of amusement, so certain areas in their minds close off to inner exploration and inventiveness, because they are being entertained rather than learning to entertain themselves.
“I point this out in the hope that you realize how extremely vital brain development is and how important it is to make those early connections in the mind. Synapses wither and die when not used through active thinking and so the child-like hope, trust and expectations are not given much of a chance to develop correctly.
“Therefore, it has become even more important to turn within into the Silence and learn to listen without expectation, to just come with an open heart and mind, and to strengthen their own connection they have with their God within.”
