Man himself increases or decreases the receipt of power through his will, and he must therefore always work on himself, when he wants to ascend. Read more:

We must always keep in mind that it always depends on our will, on our intent, when we want to achieve something.

Before I bring an announcement by Bertha Dudde, first something from Jakob Lober from his work "Die geistige Sonne" (The spiritual Sun):

jl.gso2.126,24
   24] But when you are children of an almighty father and have the life germ of the father in you, then invigorate this germ in the good soil of my will and make strong the father in you, then also you will through this become strong in the father to the same degree. Because the father does not demand your strength for himself, but he demands it for yourselves, so that therefore also you are to become perfect, as he is in himself or in heaven.

Impartation of spiritual knowledge corresponding to his worthiness.

24. January 1947. B.D. NR. 3961.

Each individual receives spiritual gifts according to his worthiness and his desire, and the understanding for it will also be accordingly. Man may certainly now and then rise to spiritual spheres, but he nevertheless can be far more materially minded than others, and the receiving of spiritual goods can certainly take place at times, but it does not become spiritual property, because it does penetrate deeply enough into the heart. The world with its demands presses for attention and lets the spiritual fade. Men can therefore certainly place themselves in the possession of spiritual gifts at times through indirect receipt, but such will not be able to become very effective for them, because they do not place the desire for it in front of everything else. But likewise can the desire also be bigger, but the way of life does not always correspond with the will of God. Then the spiritual gift can only be offered to him limitedly, however always in that measure that power is supplied to him through this and he therefore can live according to divine will, when he seriously strives for this. Man can only be given in accordance with his worthiness, otherwise his ascent development would be influenced, i.e., his will would be forced to a life pleasing to God and therefore also spiritual progress. But spiritual gift, as power radiation of God, means a secure means for the ascent, as soon as it is received desirously. Man himself increases or decreases the receipt of power through his will, and he must therefore always work on himself, when he wants to ascend. But God takes the smallest movement of will into account; he draws him with his love, as soon as man just does not put up resistance, as soon as he does not cling too much to the world and with it makes the gift of favour ineffective. For God does not force the will of man because only in free will is a becoming perfect possible. Amen. B.D. NR. 3961.
