Teacher: Thought Adjuster
Thought Adjuster: “Your soul desires to be closer to its Creator. This desire has been infused in you by the presence of the Father within. When you listen to that 'voice' and focus your attention inward, you really learn and grow spiritually.
“You neither need to ask anything nor say anything. What I want to give you doesn't require any protocol. When you come to Me you will receive something your soul needs, even if you have no awareness of what you will be receiving.
“Believe that something important happens during your meditation exercises. Adoration is the process of letting your soul – still in its embryonic state – strengthen and grow in the image and semblance of God.
“The lessons of life are not learned in moments of struggle. There will always be decisions that have to be made, and many times you will make either good or bad decisions during your life. Real learning occurs when you stop to consider what you have done, or what you will do in searching for divine guidance within yourself. So many in your world live unconsciously, reacting to the events of life without realizing what they do and why they do it!
“It is through self-examination that humans can measure to what extent they have truly lived. At first you may only be able to observe your actions and decisions after they have occurred. However, by coming to Me often, your perception is adjusted and you can start to really live in the present; in the moment. That is when you are in the state when you are really present and aware of what you are doing while you are doing it, and therefore you will have a better chance of making the right decisions. This is truly living in wakefulness.”
Thought Adjuster: “You have made the decision to put yourself and your progress in my hands. Yes, you have decided this, even when there is still fear and doubt within you. I am not here to test you, or to send you sorrows to make you stronger. I am here to simply travel the path of life with you, and experience whatever life may bring.
“You are starting to observe yourself in 'real time'. This didn't happen in a natural or magical fashion. You had to make many mistakes in the past for you to decide to do something about them. You had to experience your anger many times to know what caused it and how to anticipate its appearance. It is the experience of previous mistakes, which helped you with your faith and your wise request for help and illumination. Remember this when next you make a mistake.
“Mistakes – the blunders of life – are not in any way necessary for spiritual growth and personal improvement. In spite of your slip-ups, there are some mistakes you never made, and some you will never make. However, you have learned valuable lessons which you have accepted in faith, and because of what you have observed. See? Even the errors and experiences of others can help you grow. This is why the experience of a mortal life is so valuable on High. Consider this when observing the mistakes of your siblings, and when you find yourself judging them.
“The true spiritual student – who must be the teacher of those coming after him or her – always finds opportunities to learn by always being attentive, observing – awake.”
