Nevertheless also worldly knowledge can then be of value for fellowmen, when spiritual striving is recognizable at the same time; then the worldly knowledge will contribute that man also seeks to create knowledge of fields for himself, into which he cannot penetrate by virtue of his intellect when it is for example proven to him with the help of worldly science, that a passing after death is not possible and he then also acknowledges another field intellectually, for which he then strives and therefore aims at.

Wisdom of the world - spiritual knowledge.

14. August 1949. B.D. NR. 4713.

The all including wisdom of the world cannot replace that knowledge, which can be called heavenly wisdom, therefore gives information of that what lies outside of the world, but what can also not be proven, exactly because it concerns truths lying outside of the world. Who is regarded as extremely wise in the world, therefore on earth, he can still be ignorant in the highest degree in things, which concern those fields, and his wisdom is gone with the moment of death; he has as it were just taken part in the research of a limited field, but about which the soul passes over in its bodiless state, which is no longer worth of fathoming for it, which it therefore leaves, no matter whether it has researched it completely or only partly. It now enters a kingdom where completely different researches are of value, and its riches or its poverty now obviously comes to light and it determines the state of its new field of action, which can be agonizing or also makes happy. Who has now acquired spiritual knowledge on earth for himself, he will be able to utilize it and in this way create a lot for himself, which makes him happy, because he is completely absorbed in making other souls happy, which vegetate in complete spiritual poverty and have to rely on help. This spiritual knowledge is only rarely striven for on earth, because men do not yet recognize it as valuable and forget it over the knowledge of the world. Worldly wisdom is no wisdom, because man just specializes in what is in existence, things, which he can observe and also calculates in accordance with the sharpness of his intellect and can instruct men about them as definite fact. He calls that "knowledge", but it is only the knowledge about the divine order, in which the whole creation moves, and he gets hold of this knowledge through intellectual research and pondering. As soon as his soul leaves the bodily cover, this knowledge is without importance for it; it is no good to it in the kingdom of spirits, where only that knowledge has value, what touches that spiritual kingdom; then the most minimal spiritual wealth, therefore knowledge about the divine plan of salvation, about the relationship of the creator to his creatures, be usefully applied by it for the soul; it will constantly increase the wealth. Then the intellect is no longer decisive, but the heart, i.e. the life of feeling of the soul, how far it penetrates into spiritual knowledge. The field, which is now accessible to its research, is unlimited, will therefore bring new things for ever and for that reason also make constantly happy; there will be constant progress, an increase of spiritual knowledge and therefore also an always more busy activity and a constant increasing field of action; while limits are set for the one searching worldly, alone already through the recall out of earth life, which breaks off all research and makes it worthless for him. Worldly knowledge serves the man on earth only, but can be used by the souls in the hereafter in no way for their activity. Worldly knowledge concerns pure concrete things only and leaves every spiritual question open. Nevertheless also worldly knowledge can then be of value for fellowmen, when spiritual striving is recognizable at the same time; then the worldly knowledge will contribute that man also seeks to create knowledge of fields for himself, into which he cannot penetrate by virtue of his intellect when it is for example proven to him with the help of worldly science, that a passing after death is not possible and he then also acknowledges another field intellectually, for which he then strives and therefore aims at. Then the worldly knowledge can be called the first level, which leads to spiritual knowledge, but it is also only allowed to be used as springboard to spiritual knowledge, because this alone is decisive, because this alone is unlimited and for that reason worth striving for and must be won by everyone, who wants to be allowed to happy making activity in the spiritual kingdom. Amen. B.D. NR. 4713.
