The Beloved One:“Let us begin today to let the thoughts be more focused on the words which flow from the deep mind, for you know not whence they come. It is I, your Beloved, who strives to take all your doubts away, for your request has been heard. It is forever true that whatever it is you think I already know, because I know your hunger, I know your desires to come closer to Me, but this is difficult as still, once in a while, doubt rears its ugly head.
“Yes, I promise that I will fulfill your deepest desires, but this can only be done, when you show yourself to Me as totally willing. ‘How do I do that’, you ask? Dear one, each time you seek My nearness, more doubt flees. Oh, yes! I know that you also desire to feel this in your heart, and not only in your material brain where everything is astir at this moment.
“Please do not worry; just trust the process. You are a fragile human being, and the readiness needs to be there. You are such a delicate instrument, I do not want you to become unbalanced or unhinged. No fanaticism will ever rear its ugly head if we take things slow and easy.
“Your Master, Jesus, was never in a hurry, and this is the character trait I would have you cultivate more. Above all things, patience is required, for this is also a fruit of the spirit, and we both know that you fall far short of owning this fruit.
“I admonish you to try just a little harder to keep your temper in check. Just take ‘My Hand’ for I work with you, always, and I know that your intentions are good, and yet you need to remain calm, even if your nearest and dearest of kin vex and exasperate you.
“This is a most valuable lesson to learn.”
