For that reason consider every disappointment, every failure, every suffering through material losses as a means, to overcome wishes and desires, and resign yourselves uncomplainingly to it, because it helps you to the overcoming of all that, what is an obstacle to being a good and eager servant in my vineyard – it helps you to make your heart free and to the getting ready for the reception of me, I who truly offer something to you, what surpasses worldly pleasures.

Suitability for spiritual work. Giving away of the world.

30. May 1949. B.D. NR. 4653.

Those who feel called to work for me, by them hearing my spirit’s expressions as spoken or mentally imparted word, must constantly be eagerly active and are not allowed to get lost to the world. Nevertheless the world is still their surroundings, i.e., as long as they dwell on earth, the world also approaches them with its demands. But it can be overcome, when the heart frees itself from desires and wishes of every kind. Love, which comes to development in every man, can be directed right or wrong. If it now belongs to the world, then it is a wrong love, which must be fought against, if man wants to stand in contact with me and therefore be active for me. Love directed towards me is therefore the right one, and this love must fill a man, who wants to work as my servant for me and my kingdom. In his heart must just be space for me, therefore no concessions can be made to the world, and that it is, what man finds difficult and why only rarely someone is suitable for spiritual work, for a service, which requires unconditional giving away of the world. For that reason I must choose my workers for me; I must train their abilities, tear the love towards the world out of the heart, however not inevitably, but I must seek to change his will, that he submits to me and is no longer turned towards the world. And therefore the goods of the world must be described to him as worthless and changeable, what is possible only, if they leave him unsatisfied, so that he no longer desires them. If now a man is very worldly minded, then the spiritual contact with me is lacking, and then he will also never ever be able to do a spiritual work. But often long time passes, before a man has recognized the worthlessness of the world, and for that reason also rarely workers will be found, who offer their services to me in free will. Because the world again and again approaches men and seeks to capture their thoughts. And it will always mean a fight, but which must be carried out for the sake of the salvation of the soul, and this fight must always end with the defeat of the opponent of me, who is the prince of this world and against whom therefore this fight is waged. No matter in which form this fight takes place, the success will always be a spiritual maturation, but the cause is worldly wishes and their fulfilment. For that reason consider every disappointment, ever y failure, every suffering through material losses as a means, to overcome wishes and desires, and resign yourselves uncomplainingly to it, because it helps you to the overcoming of all that, what is an obstacle to being a good and eager servant in my vineyard – it helps you to make your heart free and to the getting ready for the reception of me, I who truly offer something to you, what surpasses worldly pleasures. Give up the world, and exchange it for me, and you win the most delicious, when I myself am in you and hand spiritual wealth out to you, which is truly comfort and refreshment for your soul and not comparable with that, what the world offers to you. Serve me eagerly, and make yourselves worthy of the preferential treatment, having been accepted as workers for my kingdom. Perform your duty conscientiously, so that you in future will be rewarded as loyal servants and be happy. Amen. B.D. NR. 4653.
