Depending on Your Driving Force

Subject: “Depending on Your Driving Force.”

Received by Lytske.

The Beloved One: “Allow Me to lead you into the subject of motivation, and what it is that motivates humans. What is this motivation, this driving force? Usually a human being just acts, hardly ever giving a thought as to why he or she acts in whatever way, because most acts are instinctual. They have become habits, which are ingrained and therefore hard to break. Still, underneath all of this is a cause which has been set in motion, which is part of motivation.

“This subject needs careful scrutiny, as motivation has different layers. There is conscious motivation, where the human will is involved. There is subconscious motivation, which has become simple habit, and there is also super-conscious motivation, which is more involved on the higher level of spirituality. We will mainly spend some moments on conscious motivation and the thoughts that drive these. It has everything to do with the level of conscious awareness. Many humans never give a thought to what motivates them. However, motivation determines their quality of life, their relationships, and the control of their habits. And usually also, when there is little or no self-control, their addictions gain the upper hand.

“Motivation is the secret to everything – to studying, to learning, to cultivating the self, to attaining goals in life, and more.

“As constant companions, motivation needs sincerity and honesty, as everything one chooses to do, or decides not to do, hopefully leads to laudable feelings of satisfaction of a life well-lived when looking back at a later time. Perhaps one will look back on a life with much regret, guilt of having missed opportunities, hurt feelings, and anger, which are usually misdirected at others. The cause of such unhappiness is often misdirected motivation and wrong choices and decision making.

“You get an inkling of just how complicated you can make your life, when motivation goes awry, especially when you act unthinkingly and fail to consider the consequences, or in extenuating circumstances where others try to make up your mind for you. So now we come to the free will, which the Creator has gifted you with, and of course, there am I, your Inner Pilot. You have the freedom to always come to Me in the Stillness and ask Me to motivate you.

“This then becomes your super-conscious motivation. And this decision you will never regret. Actually, you might even at a certain point in life say, ‘I ought to have first asked my Thought Adjuster’, or you might think, ‘I wish I had listened to my Inner Pilot’. It matters not what name you give Me, for I am part of you, and if it is also your desire, forever, as we steadily move in the direction of becoming one.

“All this depends on your motivation and decision making choices.”
