Teacher: The Beloved One.
Subject: “Are you willing?”
Received by Lytske.
The Beloved One: “Thank you My child, for being willing to lend Me your inner ear. Today’s subject is about your being willing. Of course, the question arises in your mind: ‘Willing to do what?’ This is the right question, because until you are totally certain of where you are going, you will exercise caution and you have become discerning. When over time you fine-tune your listening skills; you will no longer have doubts. Our relationship is about ‘the bonding between God and mortal’, even while you are still in the mortal habiliments. Your conviction of this will become so strong that nothing will be able to shake you lose from knowing that you are a child of God.
“However, it is still only vaguely understood by you that you are being trained in spiritual preparedness. This is why ‘to be willing’ is the subject for today. It is about when a creature is willing with heart, soul and mind to listen for, and be about, doing the Will of God in the truest sense of the word. The doing of God’s Will has been greatly misunderstood on this planet, which simply boils down to the golden rule of doing unto others, as you would like to be treated. Ask yourself, ‘how would I like to be treated?’ And when you know the answer in your heart of hearts, go forth and do likewise unto others. Smile and the world smiles with you; because the secret of a genuine smile uplifts and benefits everyone around.
To be willing to follow these simple rules is truly uplifting. Putting this golden rule into practice with sincerity, after having thought about how one would like to be treated, is perhaps somewhat more difficult.
“Life could be so simple. It has, however, become extremely complicated, because the simplest of all rules has in practice been forgotten. Perhaps this is a good time to remind each and every one that God is no respecter of persons, and all are his children, never mind what planet they come from, or what form they have or color of skin. The differences are for you to discern, and to recognize each other at the soul-root level. God our Creator loves all his offspring equally. They are the humans who put different values on people. I know that I am singing to the choir; however the question remains; How long will it take the citizens of this planet to wake up and look at each other for the true values each has been gifted with to develop in the mortal estate.
“Are you actually realizing your purpose for being here? Do you know why you have been given this mortal life – to evolve your precious immortal souls, and start developing all those wonderful gifts God has given you in your divine blueprints? You are both, the architects and the builders of your life. No one else has that responsibility. So when will you show yourself willing to get serious and make yourself available for the job only you can do? You all have been given a Spark from God within to help guide you. It depends on your willingness to open your private connection to God, and keep it alive and functioning with daily meditations, so you promote your inner listening skills and develop your bond with God.”
