There are therefore so to speak two courses of development to be covered in the mandatory state – once as matter, but then also as entity bound in matter, only that this second course of development goes considerably quicker, because matter is faster destroyed than totally dissolved, and as long as it is useful – therefore can be made to things, which have a useful purpose - the spiritual in it also does not escape; it only is often for a long time without activity and therefore suffers.

All matter spiritually enlivened.

28. and 29. April 1947. B.D. NR. 4032.

Also matter, actually appearing lifeless, carries life in itself and therefore must be acknowledged as carrier of spiritual, although it is not comprehensible to you that some entity has been allocated hardest matter as stay, in which it apparently cannot develop, therefore is as it were forced to inactivity. But God knows about the will of this entity and has given to it the cover accordingly. But as long as the will of the entity resists God, it is also not willed to carry out an activity according to the will of God; therefore it is also denied the possibility to occupy itself with service. But activity means life; an inactive being will therefore remain in a dead state, and therefore its cover, matter, will remain for infinite long time unchanged. And nevertheless it is inhabited by some entity, which feels its hard outer form as permanent pressure, as fetter, to now be driven to give up its resistance, so that it gets alleviation of its agonizing state. Matter itself is equally spiritual, which resists God, which therefore just starts its course of development. But this spiritual can likewise redeem itself through serving only, and its serving consists in that respect that it is a cover to the already more mature spiritual, which makes serving possible for it. It therefore can, through its preparedness to help the spiritual in its ascent development, mature itself and slowly win that degree, which also earns itself a cover and in which it is allowed to serve. But the procedure of development lasts a considerable time, so that therefore matter as such needs a long time before it is completely dissolved and one can speak of an overcoming of it. But the course of development must now be continued, and this so long, until many spiritual entities have united themselves and what is expressed through always more perfect and greater forms. As long as the spiritual entities have the so-called dead matter as stay, so long the state of these entities is constant, i.e., they remain in a God-resisting will and therefore can expect no change of their surroundings and their outer form. But in the knowledge of eternity matter is so placed that that spiritual enlivens the outer edge of matter, which decreases its resistance at the earliest, why also the small change, which is carried out in endless long time, is lightly visible to the human eye from the outside, while the interior of matter remains unchanged and releases that what is bound in it not earlier until the will and the power of God intervenes and destroys matter or lets it be destroyed. Then also the inner spiritual can take the way to the light, when it is willing. Once it has found the way to the light, then it also pushes towards it, because also hard matter feels the blissful relief of light and more and more decreases its resistance against God. But the state of the spiritual in this matter is a complete different one than the one in the softer form, in the plant and animal world, where life is visible to the human eye and therefore also some entity is recognized in it. Because in this form the spiritual can already move freer and be active, even so according to divine law. However hard matter holds likewise spiritual in it, only therefore lifeless, because it is completely powerless and likewise tied up through the outer cover. Something tied up cannot move and appears therefore dead, until it has broken the fetter. Spiritual substances so to speak fight against each other – matter consists of more immature spiritual substances, which, in joining together, do not want to let the already more mature spiritual escape, because it is their purpose to grant it stay. The spiritual in matter has already a higher degree of intelligence; it is only annulled through its resistance against God and therefore cannot defend itself or free itself from the fetter tiresome to it. But if matter is destroyed, then it escapes and moves into another form, because against God’s will it can neither use the freedom nor feel it agreeably. If the act of destruction had happened in accordance with the divine will, then the spiritual will move into a form, which means further development for it, while with irregular destruction – through human evil will – the spiritual seeks again a same form, despite the agony, which it has endured in it, because before the embodiment as man all spiritual is subjugated to the mandatory law of God. All matter must however be seen as cover of spiritual, which is to develop upwards, as long, as this matter represents something useful, as long as it still can be used for things, which fulfil a serving purpose. If this matter is now used through men for creations of all kind, then man helps the spiritual in matter to serve and therefore to ascent development, and that is why busy creating of a man brings unimaginable blessings in a spiritual sense, because all spiritual in matter pushes towards the state of life, which is only possible in loosened form, after certain spiritual substances have found themselves together for common work. The course of ascent development consequently happens so that all form must be seen as cover of spiritual substance, which changes all the time, however needs a long space of time in the beginning, until the state of activity, the state of life starts, but then the soul substances which are in the form increase, therefore certainly one can speak of a soul, which however is not allowed to be compared with a human soul, because latter unites all soul substances. (28.4.1947) And so you now must imagine that everything what you see is enlivened by spiritual entities, every entity is a miniature little soul, of which innumerable of them form the human soul. Also matter itself will go this course if its substances are matured so far that they now themselves as entity can take residence in that what they were themselves before – solid matter. There are therefore so to speak two courses of development to be covered in the mandatory state – once as matter, but then also as entity bound in matter, only that this second course of development goes considerably quicker, because matter is faster destroyed than totally dissolved, and as long as it is useful – therefore can be made to things, which have a useful purpose - the spiritual in it also does not escape; it only is often for a long time without activity and therefore suffers. If it is then inhabitant of an outer form which betrays more life, then latter will also go through a quicker process of decomposition, because the substances of the outer form are already more mature and soon need an outer form themselves, to further ascend. All spiritual must cover the course through the whole creation; otherwise it could not in a human soul live through the last stage, because it is formed out of all earthly creations in the smallest measure. Everything what man is able to see, is contained in a soul and so elaborately fit together that you will not stop to see and marvel when you look at your own soul as pure spirit beings. You hear it, but you do not grasp it, as long as you stay on earth, nevertheless knowledge is given to you about it, so that you, who are appointed to the office of teaching in the last time before the end, are taught right, so that you can imagine the course of ascent development truthfully and also can give information, when it is demanded of you. But knowledge about it is not absolutely necessary for men, who spiritually strive little and to whom therefore above all the love commandment is to be preached, so that they set about the forming of their soul. They are only to know about the endless long course of their soul before, so that they are conscious of the great responsibility, which they bear towards their soul. Amen. B.D. NR. 4032.
