By the Virtue of Your Decisions

Message received by Oscar.

Thought Adjuster: “On your world you have learned that it is easier to believe the negative. It is much easier to believe that there is no God and that everything is just a product of chance. However, there is a living hope within everyone that is always inspiring them to search beyond their material limits – this is the Presence of God within each mortal.

Many, in their personal experience, have lived what civilizations and planets experience once the technological and scientific advances force them to look at the beliefs of the past under a new light. This is a critical point in which they can take one of two paths. They can abandon all their beliefs in the supernatural, considering them superstitions, and adopt a way of living that is exclusively materialistic or they can search for higher explanations and discover new relationships in the transcendental truths beyond the material realm with the same scientific spirit that has brought to them the many advances they presently enjoy.

This first path soon becomes unsustainable because it robs human beings of the inspiration to be the best they can aspire to be. A materialistic conception of life does not consider the progress of personality in eternity nor the unity of all human beings, therefore, the decisions and actions taken under this point of view are necessarily of a temporal and selfish nature, focused in the here and now, in the satisfaction of the needs or the whims of the present at the expense of the future needs. This is currently the predominant way of living on this world.

The second path offers the promise of eternal life and unlimited progress in eternity. This path elevates a mortal from being conditioned by her surroundings to becoming the architect of her own destiny and able to exert an influence over all creation as a participating agent of her Celestial Father. The decisions and actions taken from this point of view are motivated by the desire to express the best of the self, striving to be increasingly closer to the ideal each person holds about God – the hunger for perfection, the effort to achieve self-mastery. Thus, the human beings of the present consider the impact their lives may have in the future, in the following generations and in the rest of the universe. This is the birth of the consciousness of universal citizenship. Which path do you think is more beneficial for you and your world?

Science will reveal to you many mysteries of the past and will make you capable of controlling your environment and the energies that surround you in ways you still don’t even imagine. An exclusively materialistic mind frame is an effective obstacle to progress, because the wrong use of the new discoveries you make will have the potential of ending your civilization. However, a vision of life that takes into consideration the inspiration that lives within each one to express the divine will, will make you the masters of your world and your life, reaching increasingly higher levels of self-mastery that will allow you to choose, on your own, the destiny of your planet and your civilization as you become beings progressively closer to God’s likeness by the virtue of your own decisions.”

Venture Out of the Haystack!

“Variety is restful; monotony is what wears and exhausts. Day after day is alike—just life or the alternative of death.” [UB, 48:6.37]

Thought Adjuster: “Those resenting diversity would benefit from the following awareness exercise: “What would my life look like if stripped to the bare bone of contrast?”

Let us compare a human experience peppered with multiformity with one plagued with uniformity. The first case scenario has a holographic quality that prompts you to grab life by the horns, relishing its thrilling elements of surprises. The second one is stuck in a tedious, mind and emotion-dulling rehashing of the same old same old.

Uniformity puts in an idling mode your innate curiosity that gets naturally stimulated by a constant change of inner and outer scenery. Happiness ensues from the full expression of your original personality, leading you to find creative ways to vent your inner truth, beauty, and goodness — the mixed media through which you optimally express your spiritual side. These beautiful attributes scream for spontaneous self-expression as a vibrant tile of the breathtaking cosmic mosaic.

Without the backdrop of diversity, nothing and no one would stand out as a thing, event, or person of interest. A standardized learning curriculum would not do much for the overall planetary advancement. How could it be without the thought-provoking catalysts of diversity?

Small-mindedness and closed-heartedness are two significant obstacles that hold you back in your overall development. Unquestioned abidance to established rules, rituals, and belief systems is unproductive. God expresses his infinite nature in a rich palette of hues, sounds, tastes, scents, and textures, selectively infusing them in each of his carefully engineered micro or macro-scaled creatures for the collective enjoyment.

In your world, uniformity has become a regrettable trend that intimidates many into concealing their stunning originality in a plain-looking haystack, doing a great disservice to the whole.”

Find Yourself Encouraged

Subject: “Find Yourself Encouraged.”

Message received by Lytske.

Thought Adjuster: “Neither let your heart be troubled, nor let it be afraid.

Rejoice, for new things are coming. As you go deeper into yourself, you will discover things you knew not the existence of. Not only will your love and worship for the Great One be more profound, you will also become more aware of the many glaringly obvious things you need to correct in yourself.

Nevertheless, dear one, do not despair. Merely through your coming closer to Me, are you beginning to perceive things more clearly. This is how it is meant to be, for you to gain knowledge of the guidelines on your way to self-mastery.

This is the most ‘delicious’ training you can give yourself. Did not your Master Jesus say, “Be ye therefore perfect even as My Father in heaven is Perfect?”

This is the road to perfection. Although it may at times be slow and painful, never allow yourself to grow discouraged or weary.

Forever keep your eyes on your goal, for this is the most important race of all to be run – the race towards Paradise. In this mortal life you can make the biggest strides of all, as this is your training ground, and I am your private Trainer.

Together we shall run this race as one, and when you grow disheartened as so many mortals do, just return to Me in the Stillness to find yourself encouraged for yet another day.

Since I am with you, always.

In all ways.”

Fear-Ridden or Faith Driven?

Lot was the nephew of the Old Testament patriarch Abraham. He was a man who seemed to be significantly influenced by his environment. As long as he accompanied his godly uncle Abraham, he managed to stay out of trouble. But when he got away from Abraham's good example and moved to the city of Sodom, he was distressed by the evil going on about him. Yet, he did not work up the initiative to leave Sodom. God considered Lot and his family righteous, so he saved them. On the verge of Sodom’s destruction, two angels led Lot, his wife, and two daughters away. His wife turned and looked back. Immediately she turned into a pillar of salt.

Thought Adjuster: “The irrefutable evidence of planetary dysfunction adversely impacts the emotional wellbeing of this generation. Many of those professing to follow in the footsteps of Jesus have in fact, defected to the side of the “people of the fear,” a far cry from the can-do attitude exhibited by the authentic “people of the faith.”

The weight of the world did rest on Jesus’ human shoulders, as he assumed the staggering responsibility to be a planetary savior. How could he remain upbeat amid so many cruel, personal and collective disappointments?

A defeatist attitude will yield more setbacks due to the universal law of attraction. Just as Lot’s family was advised not to turn around to look at Sodom, people of faith should refrain from obsessing about the ambient gloom-and-doom that metaphorically turns them into unproductive pillars of salt — cursing them with debilitating depressions.

Your imagination holds great powers of positive manifestation. Stop playing a part in the global dysfunction you denounce. By envisioning best-case scenarios, you set the co-creative wheels of positive change into motion, thus exerting a positive countereffect on the influx of bad news, which, if given free rein, keep adding to the festering pot of toxic emotions — a loose-loose predicament.

Jesus judiciously CHOSE to keep his sight focused on the objective of the ages—light and life. It is how he acquired emotional self-mastery during his short earthly sojourn. His inspirational “Follow Me” admonishes YOU to adopt a similar emotional stance, thus developing immunity against the “demotivational” victim mentality. Focus on the solutions instead of obsessing about the problems.”

Partake and Participate

Subject: “Partake and Participate.”

Message received by Lytske.

The Beloved: “To Increase your faith, all you have to do is to turn within and stay awhile to enjoy a true rest. Your faith will receive an infusion when you feel My nearness, which is a balm for the soul. You already know that even in your loneliness, you are never really alone.

The more you develop your faith and trust in this process of listening to Me, the more you will cultivate your inner security and calmness. Consider our project to be like a beautiful garden, where you tend your flowers of faith and from which a few more weeds of unbelief need to be removed.

The human mind is many sided, and there are always trapdoors through which niggling doubts slip in, to once again disturb your peace of mind.

Know that the longer you stay and the more often you come to Me, the more successful you will be in taking Me with you in your daily life. For then you will have invited Me to consciously be in the background of all your thoughts.

This is truly what I desire of you – a greater consciousness of My indwelling presence. The sooner you comprehend this, the sooner you can access Me in your daily life, and thus will I be able to point out the best direction for you to take.

Right now, I am still under-utilized in your life. In accepting this – My plea to you – I will be better able to spiritize your mind, and for you to tap into My resources.

You can see yourself as an explorer, sailing uncharted waters, however, with Me as your Pilot, you have nothing to fear.

So, come. So, partake and participate.”
