But on earth also the inactive man mostly creates a compensation through fulfilment of earthly desires and so helps himself over his state of weakness or over conscious inactivity idleness -, robbing himself of one day over the other, which was given to him for the ascent development of his soul.

Spiritual death. Idea "life".

22. July 1947. B.D. NR. 4088.

Man can live and still be spiritually dead, but as the other way round he also can die and still enter eternal life, only that this is a spiritual life, while former only concerns the body, in which the soul is in the state of lack of light and consequently also without power, therefore a state of death is its lot, even so it lives in the midst of surroundings full of joy. Because earth life is just a pretence life, which does not last, but man who is spiritually dead, is also without knowledge and therefore puts the pretence life before the actual life, the life of the spirit in eternity. But what are you man fundamentally? You are spiritual, only surrounded by a material cover, and as soon as this cover drops, which is passing, the spiritual in you is free, no matter in what state the soul leaves the body. It is free of its outer form, but not every soul is able to want and to create. But the wanting and the ability to create out of itself is its happiness; it is that state, which was originally its purpose and which got lost. But wanting and being able to create is synonymous with life being able to be uninterruptedly active according to its will. On earth "life" means an ability to be active unhindered through bodily weaknesses and afflictions, because an earth life, which has latter as company, is not fully valued and is regarded as shortcoming, as long as man does not stand in right knowledge about his earth task. But on earth also the inactive man mostly creates a compensation through fulfilment of earthly desires and so helps himself over his state of weakness or over conscious inactivity idleness -, robbing himself of one day over the other, which was given to him for the ascent development of his soul. In the spiritual kingdom on the other hand the soul must do without all anaesthetic; it must feel the state of its inactivity as depressing; it must become an agony for it so that it seeks to flee from it. Its lack of power prevents it from an unauthorized change of its state; it is poor in every respect and must live in want, until help is brought to it in its trouble through the prayer of men on earth being close to it. Because where love forwards such a prayer into eternity, there the soul gets a glimmer of knowledge like lightning. If it makes use of it, then the light around it will soon become stronger and the terrible agonies of the lack of light let up. But the desire for life awakens now in it and stimulates it to activity; but activity in the hereafter is: working in love, as also on earth the soul can win eternal life through a love life only, which only gives its soul the right life. And so death never ever needs to frighten a man, who makes an effort on earth to walk in love, because he will not die, but live in eternity. But the others, who only value earthly life alone, death will keep its thorn, because they are really in the state of death after their demise; only that they are not completely wiped out, but that the awareness of their existence adheres to them extraordinarily and often so that they think of themselves only and pay no attention to the misery of the souls around them. And then they are in deepest danger of having to remain in the state of death throughout eternities, because only love can give life, because the law of love must be fulfilled on earth as in the hereafter, because without love there is no life and man can never become happy. Therefore life and death can be close together; the demise of a man does not need to mean his death, as also life of a man can only then be called life, when the spirit is active constantly, when man sets himself a spiritual goal and follows it eagerly; when he works in love, as his spirit tells him to do, because he will not die, but live in eternity. Amen. B.D. NR. 4088.
