Give great pleasure where you can, and seek to hold no anxious limitation, because this suffocates love; it awakens no mutual love, and where love is missing, is no spiritual progress, although you have earthly created order so to speak, but divine order must first be fulfilled, and according to divine law love is first.

Justice. Equal rights. Mutual love.

28. and 29. September 1947. B.D. NR. 4131.

Also the sense of justice is subject to a law. An increase in many ways is certainly possible; nevertheless also a restriction is advisable in cases where it is about equal rights. Because it must always be taken into account that both giving as also receiving are first subject to the law of love. Giving is determined by love, that is love must be the driving force of giving, and so every gift must awaken love in the receiver. Because love is the original substance of all that what is visible to man; as it also must flow constantly towards all works of creation, if they are to remain. And that is why the power of love is necessary, if that what is offered is to awaken mutual love and so the power to be increased in itself. Giving proves love; but the receiving can also proceed without love, but will then remain accordingly without effect; unless the receiver takes part in spiritual gifts out of own drive, which come from above and again lead upwards. Earthly gifts can only have an earthly effect, i.e., the giving part must expect, (29.9.1947) that his gift is certainly accepted, however is not differently valued than a naturalness and therefore also awakens little or no mutual love, what would have to be mentioned as spiritual failure. Then the will of the giver alone is important, but not the act in itself. The degree of love is always decisive, which pushes a man to give, and that is why giving cannot be generalized, since the degree of love is not always and towards all men equal; man must rather practise strict self-critique, otherwise he sees actions as love activity, which are merely effects of education or habits, which do not have love as driving force towards fellowman. There is no doubt that the behaviour of men in latter form is commendable and therefore should also occur; however every act, which is carried by love, has eternity value, because its effect is increased soul maturity. Acts of love increase the spiritual state of mankind on earth; acts of justice can certainly be combined with love, are however mostly driven by the feeling of official consideration; they can be carried out mechanically, without the heart being involved in it, and will therefore also never follow man as act of love into eternity. Just thinking and just acting is demanded of men, because the opposite has a damaging effect upon the neighbour and therefore is lack of love; it is a violation of the law of love. Consequently just thinking and just acting can be regarded as fulfilling of the law of love. But under justice equal rights are not always to be understood because claim to absolute equality cannot always be raised and by all men. Because also there laws exist, which are subject to divine will. Man should certainly be intent on not overbearing himself in any direction, therefore not to demand for himself more than he wants to give; he is to send to the other what he himself thinks is desirable, this will however must be remaining free lasting; it is not allowed to be inevitably steered in one direction, what is however the case when the reason of giving is a form acquired by education, which is complied with. (29.9.1947) For that reason check seriously, which feeling drives you, when you let your will to give become action. Do not be satisfied with a correct act, which lacks all warmth, but follow the urging of your heart, then love will determine you, and all thinking, wanting and acting will be good. But act just in cases of need, where not only one depends on your help, but this is necessary everywhere. Then do not deny giving to one while you give to the other, but make an effort of a just allocation and assessment. Give great pleasure where you can, and seek to hold no anxious limitation, because this suffocates love; it awakens no mutual love, and where love is missing, is no spiritual progress, although you have earthly created order so to speak, but divine order must first be fulfilled, and according to divine law love is first. Where it is respected, all other good qualities will follow, in which also justice is included. Amen. B.D. NR. 4131.
