The Beloved Within: “To continue another lesson, I desire to touch on the subject of worries.

“Worrying is a most useless activity to engage in. It wastes a lot of precious time that could more fruitfully be spent in prayer and meditation.

“Prayer is by far the better activity as it engages the level of earnestness, sincerity and belief, with which the prayer is offered. It also ought not to be selfish prayer for instant gratification, as it is more helpful to pray for others.

“Furthermore, the Creator does not mind by which name He is called, for this concerns only the caller and the intent of the heart.

“Besides, prayer always goes to the appropriate celestial agencies, who always know and abide by the Father’s will, as the Father divested himself of all duties able to be performed by others.

“Only worship and adoration go directly to the Eternal God.

“To return to our subject of worry; this is an area where the ‘faith muscle’ gets a real workout to counteract that nefarious and deadly poison, for it can swallow up and drown a person in a sea of self-pity and depression.

“Prayer, trustful prayer, creates a backbone for the soul, as it helps build up that faith muscle, and provides an undying hope for better days ahead.

“This is God’s promise: There will always be better days ahead when life is being lived with a greater understanding and as wisdom is gained through experience by learning from your mistakes, so the realization shall dawn that all is well.

“Remember that mistakes are lessons in disguise, for through these lessons one learns to forgive oneself and others.

“Remember also that ‘according to your faith, it is done unto you’. Worries disappear when you exercise your faith in the loving over-care of the Creator.

“Come, let Me assure you by My presence that all is well.”

About Spiritual Lobbyism

Subject: “About Spiritual Lobbyism”

Message received by Anyas

“... Jesus won [Simon Zelotes] for the higher concepts of the kingdom of heaven. He had always identified himself with the party of protest, but he now joined the party of progress, unlimited and eternal progression of spirit and truth.” [UB 139:11.7]

Thought Adjuster: “As you can imply from the above quote, there is a world of difference between being a protestor and a progressist. As witnessed in your world, both tendencies shaped history. However, a mere protest will not necessarily bring about progress if it does not suggest better operative ways and the follow-through of hand-on implementation.

“Protests often turn into hate – and resentment-driven riots. Jesus never condoned such behaviors, as they are counter-productive to establishing the family of man under the loving divine parenthood. He told Simon that it was proper to want to see the social, economic, and political orders improved, but he would always add: «That is not the business of the kingdom of heaven. We must be dedicated to the doing of the Father’s will. [. . .] we must not immediately concern ourselves with naught but the representation of the will and character of the divine Father who stands at the head of the government whose credentials we bear.» [UB 139:11.9]

“As the spiritual savior of humankind, Jesus entertained a long-term vision that encompassed past, present, and future generations of souls. ‘Activists’ are the movers and shakers of modern times, as they draw attention to areas in need of reformation. Do not discard their role as social reformers, as they are catalysts for change.

“However, Jesus’ discipleship is called to principally devote their energies to promoting his spiritual vision, as there is a shortage of laborers in that field. Jesus laid the groundwork while living among men and needs many diligent stewards of his legacy.

“The altruistic interests of the kingdom of the heart require pointed spiritual lobbyism. Do not squander your precious life force in engaging in trivial matters. Go after a worthwhile calling that adequately caters to your soul’s needs.”

All is Well

Alabama, US of A, October 10, 2013.
Teacher: Thought Adjuster.
Subject: “All is Well.”

Message received by Oscar.

Thought Adjuster: “How many times in your life have you experienced anxiety about situations that seem bad or even desperate? However, you are still here and frequently have experienced that, in the end, everything is always resolved. What many fail to grasp is that most of these ‘resolutions’ happen internally, within each person’s consciousness.

“It does not matter how great a tragedy appears to be, with time the negative impact of this event often can be minimized or even completely overcome. Obviously, the tragedy does not vanish, but the way in which the occurrence affects you does change. Sooner or later, you decide to accept what you cannot change and to begin to trust again in the fact that all will be well in the end. This is the natural faith in human beings, always searching the horizon for better times.

“For those who let themselves be illuminated by their Spiritual Being, the occurrences of life do not affect them too much, because they have accepted that the will of the Father will prevail in the end, and that this will is the way with more love and goodness for all beings. This is the source of true and lasting peace which is always expressed in lives that are inspired by faith and motivated by the impulse to worship the Father in heaven – the desire to be increasingly more like God.

“If the situation you live today causes you anxiety, remember you have gone through similar events in the past and in the end everything was good. Remember that you are not alone in this life experience and that you can count on abundant spiritual help, centralized in the presence of the Father within your own being. God himself is taking care of your affairs and He wishes to guide you to overcome all obstacles. It is up to you to take advantage of this great resource that has always been inside of you.

“And if everything is going well, be grateful to the One who from behind the curtain has helped you to overcome everything. In addition, do not fear for the things that may happen. Fear is always a negative reaction of anticipation about things that may never happen. It is like investing all your money to buy expensive coats to protect you from glacial temperatures while you live in a tropical island. It makes no sense, it is a waste of resources, and it does nothing to improve your current situation. In fact, fear does precisely the opposite. It distracts you, affecting your ability the think clearly and calmly about how to solve your problems.

“A life consecrated to the purpose of being better every day – to live the will of the Father – is a life filled with hope, inspiration, and free of fear, since you would start living as if you were already in the presence of the Father, enjoying His care, His guidance, and His help. Even though this is already a fact in every moment but it is only through your own experience and personal search that this fact becomes a reality in your life.”

The Love of God Shall Triumph

Teacher: The Beloved.
Subject: “The Love of God Shall Triumph.”

Message received by Lytske.

The Beloved: “The daily exercise of seeking Me in the Silence of the heart is the inexplicable attraction of Paradise, latent in each evolving soul. It is the faraway echo of the Eternal; the origin and destiny of every created being and evolving creature. Even when your faith wavers, and you slip because of unbelief, it takes true courage to march on in this uncertainty as to what lies beyond the veil.

“I can assure you that the Master Planner and Architect is also the Builder and artist, who painstakingly and patiently in His great love and wisdom will see to it that every stone, color and hue, is laid down in a most perfect pattern. It is His will that each created being and human creature through experience evolves toward this perfect design that is held within this great Being.

“Simultaneously with this infinitely great decision in the eternal past, the Creator decided that He wanted to experience Himself through all the created beings and evolving creatures of His time and space planets. He therefore gave each creature free will to make their own personal choices and decisions to co-create this ideal pattern of evolving perfection, and gave each one a tiny Spark of Himself, for help and direction, should they so desire.

“He also gave each being their free will to choose between good and evil. Therefore, all the evil you see and experience is of humankind's making. Humankind is inherently good, but on your planet and some others, unfortunate great upheavals have occurred, which have caused gene mutations leading to mental aberrations. Here you see in operation the law of cause and effect.

“However, the ‘Call of Spirit’ shall ultimately prevail and the Love of God shall absolutely triumph.”

With the Heart of a Philanthropist

Oregon, USA, November 24, 2020.
Thought Adjuster.
Subject: “With the Heart of a Philanthropist.”

Message received by Anyas.

Philanthropy: The root word Phil translates from the Greek verb meaning to love, and Anthro translates to man. Philanthropy consists of private initiatives, for the public good, focusing on quality of life.

Thought Adjuster: “There are many facets to the philanthropic act of giving. It is meted out in various love currencies that simultaneously require an investment of your time vouchers: the courtesy of your focused attention when you lend a friendly ear to someone in need; the contribution of your physical, emotional, or spiritual energies when you compensate for someone’s handicaps or diminished capacities in these specific areas; the sharing of your vision when you thread a needle for a seamstress whose eyesight is deteriorating; the winged offering of a prayer that you spontaneously launch off to intercede on someone’s behalf; the philanthropic donation of forgiveness when you shred your debtors’ IOUs; the instant booster shot of a warm smile; the enlightening dispensing of your intellectual or experiential competency. You get the idea. Your gifts consist of a wide array of mixed media, delivered in the shining and heart-warming wrapping of love, empathy, and compassion.

“You will notice that the more you adopt a giving stance, the more alive you will feel. By their altruistic nature, your deeds cannot but trigger a communicating-vase-phenomena where the Divine replenishes the energies you spend for the highest and collective good as his cherished go-betweens.

“What and how can I give today? This question will place you on standby, ready to jump into action whenever an opportunity arises. Upon retiring, go over your day. It will validate the fact that the Father took you seriously when you reported for loving service.”
