Preserve Yourself

"Go now and leave your life of sin." Jesus (John, 8:11)

The valuable seed that you do not care for could get misplaced.

The young tree that you fail to shelter is open to destruction.

The fountain that you do not care for could dry up.

The water that you fail to distribute becomes muddy.

The fruit that is not utilized becomes spoiled.

The good earth that you fail to cultivate becomes asphyxiated by useless weeds.

The hoe that you fail to utilize becomes rusty.

The flowers that you fail to cultivate will not re-bloom.

The friend that you fail to preserve avoids your path.

The medication whose proper dosage you do not imbibe as indicated will not benefit you physically.

Thus, as well, is the Divine Grace.

If you do not guard the blessings from Heaven respecting them in your own self; if you do not utilize the great knowledge that you receive to benefit your own happiness, if you do not appreciate the contribution that comes down to you from on High, then the dedication of the spiritual messengers is of no value to you. In vain, will they improvise miracles of love and patience in solving your problems, because without the adhesion of your will in the regeneration process, all their protective measures shall be useless.

"Go now and leave your life of sin."

The lesson from Jesus is expressive and sufficient.

The Divine Doctor provides the cure, but if we do not preserve it within us, no one will be able to foresee the extension and consequences of the new imbalance that will pursue us for lack of vigilance.
