A Thought Adjuster Speaks - # 359
18th July, 2004
Dear one, allow Me to accept your songs of praise and gratitude that are singing in your heart. These are like a
smile from your soul towards the Eternal God. Purify yourself more and more by being gratefulgrateful for
the Gift of Life itself, and the abundance of possibilities and opportunities it offers. The true meaning and purpose
of life is soul progress.
This progress, however, can only be had when the heart is open and the mind is willing to follow. This would then
give you impetus and speed. But so often the heart is closed, or just partly open, and the mind is willful. The
heart needs to be cleansed and purified, not only from sorrow and grief, but also from resentment, un-forgiveness,
anger, deceitfulness, and the like, which impede progress and give maladies to the physical system and not in the
least to the heart.
The mind barricades itself behind all this, and this creates the mountains of unwillingness, and lack of trust and
faith in a Higher Power, while the soul withers and sometimes dies off due to lack of spiritual ties and nourishment.
You note that I mention heart, soul and mind separately, they do have their separate functions but operate as one,
just like the physical body does, but when one is malnourished, everything else suffers with it.
Believe Me when I tell you that love, praise and gratitude are the keys to the Kingdom of God within you, and create
the entrance thereto. Find something to be thankful for each day, especially when everything seems dark. You have
a saying; when life deals you lemons, you make lemonade. Add to that the deep sense that you are safely
ensconced in the lap of the Holy Mother Spirit, Who loves Her little ones when they come to Her with their scrapes
Feel then the safety and nourishment you are seeking, and go forth from Her embrace with thanksgiving and praise.
Despite how bleak life may seem, there are always blessings to be re-counted. Just turn within, where I am always
waiting to sustain you. A holy hush will settle over your heart, soul and mind, and you feel encouraged to carry
on yet another day, somehow knowing that all is well.
