The Beloved One: “Life on this earth is beset with uncertainties and often everyone, quite unknowingly, labors under the yoke of handicaps. “Humankind is learning to deal with and accommodate the obviously visible impediments. However, it has hardly started to address the mental, emotional and spiritual handicaps.
“The mental, emotional and spiritual handicaps are far more real and insidious and, because of their invisibility, they are harder to deal with. “The spiritual handicaps are intertwined with the mental ones and both affect the emotions; and although the emotional ones seem easier to deal with, they are in fact the most difficult.
“Its cause is often a lack of parental love and acceptance, a lack of nurturing. Frequently it starts already before conception if the young couple is not ready to accept full responsibility for the new life they are creating.
“The unseen Spirit of God is always present.
“Most so-called love-making is but a random moment in time, without thought for the eternal consequences. However, it often culminates in the creation of a new life. “The world still lives in separation from God and is oblivious to the love of the Creator. Abuses are rampant, as there is often a total disrespect for human life and dignity.
“Is it really any wonder that there are as yet so few truth-seeking souls? The emotional and mental handicaps do influence the spiritual life. Much healing needs to occur in all these areas and this is not accomplished with chemicals of any kind. “Healing starts ‘in the inner life,’ with a truthful and sincere seeking of the real purpose of the Gift of life itself — the open door to all healing.
“Much celestial help is available, and all one has to do is ask in sincere prayer and sit in meditation to hear the answers. Doors are always opening, but it is in mindful and conscious living that these opportunities are discovered. “There are lessons to be learned, experiences to be gained, for the growing of a strong dependable character. “Do turn to the Silence within, and listen to the still Voice of the eternal God.
“It is in you to do so.”
