When the soul has asserted itself in the resistance against the power striving for its downfall and recognized its starting-point out of God then it certainly remains in the permanent care of its spiritual friends who stand by its side ready to help, but its striving for perfection must find the driving power in itself, its will must as it were remain uninterruptedly active to reach perfection.

In the last days we had dealt with the will of man and today comes now an application of this will:

 

Danger of becoming lukewarm. Regression. Extreme wrestling of the soul.

21. March 1939. B.D. NR. 0820.

It is a long way up to perfection. When the soul has asserted itself in the resistance against the power striving for its downfall and recognized its starting-point out of God, then it certainly remains in the permanent care of its spiritual friends who stand by its side ready to help, but its striving for perfection must find the driving power in itself, its will must as it were remain uninterruptedly active to reach perfection. Every deviation from the right track, every lethargy and carelessness has to be made good through double dedication and working on oneself and cannot be replaced through someone elseís power or help. The soul achieves everything with the own will; nothing without its will. That is why also no standstill is allowed to occur in the desire to reach height because a standstill is tantamount to regression. A man, whose soul is no longer active for its own eternal salvation, will definitely turn again towards the world to just have some activity, and re-establish the connection with matter, instead of separating from it, which is his real job. And so the danger of regression is always far greater than that of a standstill because the latter lasts only a short time, and then the man does his spiritual job again, or he departs from it, what everyone should anxiously try hard to prevent. Because the opportunity of regression is immediately used by bad powers, which lurk around him all the time, and for their part have an effect on such a soul with all means available to them. And the fight starts afresh and demands fullest power of resistance and readiness for action. That is why every soul is to just take care that it does not tire in its upward striving; daily it is to ensure the divine favour through continues prayer and trustingly turn for help to the father in heaven in every trouble and in the danger of becoming lukewarm. This already requires the will of the earth child, and as soon as the will becomes active just through prayer, the soul remains in permanent work on itself, and the danger of regression is rectified. Unthinkable long time has its struggle already lasted, and when also great demands are made on the soul in earth life, then the soul should still exactly now untiringly wrestle to pass the last test and to be able to leave its forced state and to see all Godís treasures as free light being and find eternal happiness in the union with the highest being. And that is why it is supposed to consciously renounce what still connects it with the world, although its body still dwells on earth Ė but the soul can hurry on ahead into the domains of highest happiness when it just lets its will become active all the time and prevents every decrease of spiritual striving or fights against it. Amen. B.D. NR. 0820.
