The Beloved One.
Subject: “A Lesson about Assignment.”
Received by Lytske.
The Beloved One: “This lesson may at first puzzle you, although in time much of the content of all my lessons will become clear. Life itself consists of lessons which you give yourself through the choices and decisions you make. You have the prerogative to always change your mind and do things differently, especially when things don’t turn out as expected. However, dear one, they are the seemingly hard lessons which carry the greatest blessings as they embody precious knowledge you can in no other way acquire. They are those lessons which form your character as at times you are tested every inch of the way, until you ‘arrive at a place of calmer waters’ and life seems to flow smoother for a time.
“You may liken life to an assignment – one which your higher self decided upon before your birth. This thought may seem incredible to you, but that is because you still hold onto the vestiges of your old belief system, and belief systems are concepts from seers, prophets and believers, set down in your so-called holy books which are full of concepts from these people. Oh yes! Much of it is inspired, but much of it, also, is human thought contamination, and personal opinion. Hardly anything contains pure celestial truth, but some of it is truth, and each and every one of you lives part of that truth until it becomes clearer in your mind. You do have that precious capacity of thought and you each represent a part of that truth as you learn it in your evolving discernment and soul-development.
“In your mortal assignments, it is up to each one to discover that part of truth which is their very own, and that precious part is the discovery that you all are the beloved children of the Creator God. It is this discovery which helps you to become grounded between heaven and earth and in a way it represents the beginning of your spiritual assignment to become perfect even as the Ultimate Creator is perfect. You gradually begin to realize that life consists of different levels, and now you enter a higher and more moral and ethical level of living as you earnestly begin to co-operate with the Guidance of Spirit within, and you begin to weave your eternal soul in co-operation with this Spirit. Your own spirit-self will become unrestrained by this co-operation. This, of course, happens through your willingness to make time to listen and act on this Guidance.
This Gift from God, this Still Small Voice comes with the counterpart of your assignment. ‘You will have opened the door’ by your willingness to search for answers, and will have found those answers waiting within yourself. It is part and parcel of becoming an independent thinking human being who dares to believe in an unseen God. And having had so much confirmation from within, you can no longer deny My existence in you, unless you become willful and turn away from Me. But you are smart enough to realize, that I offer you the greatest hope of all as I have given you the peace of mind for which you have been searching all your life. For this was and still is part of My assignment, to aid you through this life so you can fulfill that part of your mortal assignment and become that which the Eternal desires for you and has individually gifted you with, which is to live life to the best of your ability. For in the mind of God, there is a plan for all His mortal children to become perfect as He is.”
