MY CHILD, PLACE INTO MY HANDS
THE GARDEN OF YOUR SOUL
Part 1 of 2 CS-120 19-Jan-98
(For a very beloved friend)
My beloved child, the first and most effective thing
that is suitable for one who feels prey to desolation
or what you call “being in the dumps”,
is to not pay attention if the medicine brings sadness.
You cannot be convinced of this maxim
if you run after incentives held as the joys of the spiritual life.
This is because the soul, accustomed to these joys,
is nourished by tender food,
which is easily assimilated and more easily desired.
The one who gets accustomed to not paying attention to moods
elevates himself to a region that is not simply indifference
but rather divine indifference.
Could a man remain above so many of his aspirations,
if at the same time he does not take from My hands all the events?
And how would he go about remaining indifferent
if he gives too much importance to what satisfies him?
But now it is better that I speak to mankind of My purpose in this matter.
You would not be able to understand ---and I speak to all of you
because these are hard things to penetrate your understanding.
This is why I am telling you that I want to raise you above yourselves
since you are the first obstacle toward making progress
in goodness and in joy.
You yourselves make the bulwark to this My beneficial Will,
which tends to elevate you above others,
but especially above yourselves.
This is the reason why I limit My actions of love for you
and no other reason is so strong as to hinder My love.
I repeat, these are hard things
or better said, you are the hard ones, the stubborn,
the unbelieving ones.
If I set the radius of action in which you can be helped by Me,
why do you not believe Me?
Why do you return to your entanglements if I, Myself,
show you the strings
which keep you from receiving all the joys that I wish to give you?
This is the Message of Love which I wanted to give you [My child].
It is the only Message for certain souls of Mine
who at times feel distressed
and that is why I give it to them.
The useless things are damaging more than being useless.
But let us better analyze this matter.
The state of each one of you corresponds approximately
to the proportion of the spiritual fasting that you have.
That is to say, that your soul is ahead
as it accepts the experience of blindness, dryness
and overcomes doubts.
