Man must appropriate abilities for himself; he must bring talents in himself to development and strive to gain highest soul maturity by this. He must therefore develop himself further also still as man, and indeed no longer according to his outer form, but his thinking, wanting and acting must be meant for his inner shaping, so that a being enters the spiritual kingdom at the end of his earth course, which is like the originally created being, so as it took its start from God.

Pre-men. Creation metaphorically described.

7. and 8. May 1948. B.D. NR. 4293.

You must imagine the development of every work of creation to win the conviction that also man had to cover an endless long time of development before he reached the stage, where he could think, speak and act in free will. An outer form had to be formed so to speak, which was suitable for every performance; further an organic activity had to be possible for this outer form, which served the preservation of the body. But this outer form had to be first generated in a most primitive way and become more refined in the course of time, therefore a long generating time belonged to it, until this outer form was so shaped that intellect and free will was added to it and could now carry out every activity rationally. Hence it follows that there was no sudden creation of man by God, although this was certainly easily possible for him, however did not correspond to his wisdom and love, but that a slow ascending development preceded, of which product man is, who is able to think and carry out acts he freely wants, who could now also be called to account for his thinking, wanting and doing. Therefore before the fully developed man there existed already human like living beings on earth standing on different levels of development, however time wise there was no great difference so that at the same time the whole earth was (then) inhabited (not inhabited) Ö. (crossed out and in brackets the script was changed) by that living being, which could lay claim to the name man, which therefore was in the possession of free will and a well-developed intellect and consequently able to appropriate a certain degree of cognition.
And this being increased itself in accordance with divine will to divine order, because every work of creation, including man, is subordinated to the divine law of nature, and it is directed and destined to natural acting, whereof also its existence depends. He certainly can also violate this law of nature, but by which also his bodily life as man on earth is endangered, as also the life of his soul; the outer form was given to the soul for the soulís further development. (8.5.1948) For the sake of the high aim also abilities had to be given to man by God, which can lead him to reach this aim, if free will is seriously directed towards it. Man must appropriate abilities for himself; he must bring talents in himself to development and strive to gain highest soul maturity by this. He must therefore develop himself further also still as man, and indeed no longer according to his outer form, but his thinking, wanting and acting must be meant for his inner shaping, so that a being enters the spiritual kingdom at the end of his earth course, which is like the originally created being, so as it took its start from God. The act of creation is therefore a process, which stretches over a great space of time, but which was so described to men, as it was grasped by him, because the state of imperfection of the creature results in ignorance, in the inability to recognize the deepest motives of creation, its meaning and purpose and the final aim of the creatures put by God on earth, why the knowledge had to be offered to the latter in a form, which gave a rough outline of Godís rule and will, to make the creation of earth and all living beings understandable to man metaphorically. But as soon as man achieves the forming to love in free will, as soon as he develops in himself the ability to accept spiritual instructions, as soon as he is in contact with the spiritual kingdom mentally, he will also know about pure truth, about the slow ascent development of every creation and therefore also of man, who as crown of creation is the only living being, which can change ignorance to a high degree of knowledge, to whom therefore also the ability was given to recognize God and his work, which shows love, wisdom and omnipotence. Has man acquired that knowledge, then he is also able to explain that metaphorical comparison, which was once given to the old, who also, if they were pious and God-fearing, understood the right meaning of it. To faithless men on the other hand every description of creation appears as untrue or unacceptable, and they reject, but without knowing about truth or being able to put a better knowledge against it. But truth could also be offered to these clear and comprehensibly, they would reject it, because their intellect does not grasp, since their hearts are without love. Amen. B.D. NR. 4293.
