The uncaring one will only want to arrange anew his own life, he will do everything to gain again prosperity and he will stop at nothing to achieve this at the expense of the neighbour. And soon it will be obvious from whom he receives his support and who gives him strength for worldly work and who has in return taken possession of his soul. Read more:

Changed Situation in Life. Worldly Men.

13. February 1947. B.D. NR. 3975.

A thinking that is completely orientated towards the world will hardly get into the spirit of the changed situation in life and will only constantly concern itself with the improvement of that situation and this will also prevent man from all work on his soul. Who lets matter become his master will also never overcome matter and to whom the loss of earthly goods was not a help to overcome these will rush towards these possessions with increased eagerness to increase them again and if he is to be helped again then this can only happen through renewed loss so that he learns to recognize the impermanence of matter and mentally profits from this. But increased worldly striving will result in the loss of all faith and this already will establish different camps which are recognizable outwardly. Men who are believers feel their worldly harassed state of affairs to be send by God and are therefore not anymore anxious to increase their earthly possessions while the man who strives for possessions has lost faith in a power that wants to reveal itself through events that brought him material loss. His desire for the world is greater and therefore he does not recognize God and also does not arrange his life according to his will. And so an exceedingly busy activity will begin and men will want to improve their life situation which has become exceedingly difficult due to the will of God. And the thinking of a man will now become obvious - the one who lives a life of love will help his neighbour to make his life bearable but the uncaring one will only want to arrange anew his own life, he will do everything to gain again prosperity and he will stop at nothing to achieve this at the expense of the neighbour. And soon it will be obvious from whom he receives his support and who gives him strength for worldly work and who has in return taken possession of his soul. But the believer will also find help in every difficulty but not visible outwardly but the power of God will inundate him, he will get every situation in life under control and remain in contact with God all the time, his faith will deepen, love for material things will decrease, and this is by far a greater progress than the increased worldly possessions of the unbeliever. Because he who sells his soul for the sake of an earthly life reckons only with the short time of life on earth which can come to an end for him any day. And he does not consider eternity which will be terribly agonizing for him because matter will captivate him the same way as it did on earth. And that is why man has to try to free himself from any form of desire for matter he is to take upon himself the difficult time with submission to Godís will and to follow God the more closely the more he is helpless worldly wise. For God will help him and will also reveal himself through the often miraculous help. And for him the time of trouble will be short but endless long the life in the spiritual realm where he, being rid of all material things, will be unspeakably happy because he already became an overcomer of matter on earth. Amen. B.D. NR. 3975.
