That is why God takes pity on them, and he obviously shows them, which value earthly matter has, by him allowing that it gets lost to men, by taking from them again and again what they possess and on what they hang their heart, without being aware that it is a wrong love, which slumbers in them.

Lot in eternity according to the will. Matter false love.

6. February 1947. B.D. NR. 3969.

After which man strives, that he is to have, because his will alone determines his lot in eternity. When you strive for the kingdom of God, then you will also take it and be co-ruler of all worlds – but when you strive for the world, for fulfilment of earthly wishes and desires, then you also have the world, i.e. not leave the earthly good, although you have entered the hereafter, because your wishes also create your surroundings for you, in which your soul dwells. You only will not be happy with the possession of those goods, because you will very soon recognize its un-realness, therefore find no more fulfilment of your desires, however continuously desire, and this desire will torment you, and that is why you must strive to get rid of such desires already on earth; you must desire spiritual goods, when you want to be happy in future. After which you strive, that will be your part. And so every man creates his lot himself, and he is therefore to be aware of the great responsibility, because there are eternities that lie before him, eternities, which he can spend in happiness or has to live through wretchedness. Because eternities can pass until he has overcome earthly matter, because in the spiritual kingdom the temptations are still very much worse because he resists them little, while on earth he can very easily get rid of them, when he only wants earnestly. A soul, which has overcome and enters the kingdom on the other side, is inexpressibly happy, because far more marvellous pleasures are waiting for it, of which you men on earth have no idea. It will also desire, however find continuous fulfilment, because what it desires is spiritual good; it is the love radiation of God, which makes it infinitely happy, which is its continuous desire and given to it constantly. And this love radiation of God spiritualizes its whole being; it more and more becomes like the eternal love and feels being attracted by it constantly; it continually desires the nearness of God; to be connected to him until all eternity and also to be unspeakably happy. Men on earth demand earthly pleasures, bodily consumptions and only strive always for material possession. And everything finds its end with the death of the body. Nothing they can take over into the spiritual kingdom, when they have not gathered spiritual goods, which however are only to be won by neglecting earthly wishes. And when they can still separate themselves from the world before the bodily death, when they still have recognized its worthlessness before and deal with thoughts of the hereafter, they can consider themselves blessed because then the way up is no longer closed for them in the spiritual kingdom, even so unspeakable difficult to climb, but then they no longer strive for earthly goods and no longer have to fear the bad temptations, through which a soul becomes weak and unable to resist. Then they will very soon find support from the light beings’ side, who help them, by them handing out spiritual goods to them, even so in certain limits, until the soul itself makes an effort to increase, until it has recognized its task in the spiritual kingdom and strives to comply with it. What it desires, will be granted to it. The will alone is decisive, and so that the will decides right, men will constantly be instructed by God of his will, but they do not listen to him, they further desire the world and bring their souls into great danger. That is why God takes pity on them, and he obviously shows them, which value earthly matter has, by him allowing that it gets lost to men, by taking from them again and again what they possess and on what they hang their heart, without being aware that it is a wrong love, which slumbers in them. He takes from them what they do not want to hand over voluntarily, to show them already on earth that it can be overcome to help them to free themselves from the desire for it, to content themselves with little and to turn their love towards spiritual goods, which are far more valuable and unchanging. Every earthly loss which affects man is a help of God; it is a gentle admonition to turn away from it, and a sign of transience of all earthly things. And who looks around with open eyes, he can recognize God’s work everywhere, who wants to help men to steer their thinking and striving spiritually, so that they learn to despise matter already before the death of the body and only strive for spiritual goods – so that they create a lot for themselves in the hereafter which means happiness - so that they become happy, because it is their will. Amen. B.D. NR. 3969.
