A spiritual striving man withdraws from the world; he begins to take stock of himself and his attitudes of his inner being; he certainly still lives in the material world, but little touched by it, and for that reason the spiritual world can successfully have an effect on him, because it hands out in the same measure, what is given up of earthly good, only that it gives goods of immortal value, which help the soul to eternal life.

Overcoming of matter.

21. May 1950. B.D. NR. 4901.

The goods of this world lose value, as soon as the spiritual kingdom has opened its horn of plenty and pours it out over man. For that reason you will always be able to recognize, who is in contact with the spiritual kingdom, may it be consciously or unconsciously through a way of life pleasing to God, because to him the world does not mean much. But there are only few of them; the majority of men are held on to by matter and have themselves no will to break away from it, which would also give them power for it. Matter exercises an always stronger attraction on the inhabitants of earth, the more it is coming to an end. Matter pulls man down, for that reason he stands on greatest danger; and so he is to be helped, it is only so possible, that matter is taken from him through divine will. He must become free from matter by force, to now being able to still renounce it out of free will or to desire matter again with all senses and strive to win it again. Then he has rejected the help; his striving obviously goes down matter becomes his ruin. Then he is granted after which his desire stands, but in a different way. He does not win earthly goods, but he becomes himself that, what he desires - (22.5.1950) hardest matter, which requires again endless times to overcome it. But as long as he dwells on earth, he has the possibility to free himself from it, as soon as his thoughts just take the direction of the will to the spiritual kingdom. Because once he is touched by its radiation, then love to matter starts to wane; the soul feels the blissful relief of the spiritual radiation and devotes itself more and more to it. A contact out of the spiritual kingdom already takes place, when man attends, so the divine word is imparted to him. A mere listening with the bodily ear has indeed still no effect, the heart of man must open itself to it and the heart and the intellect assimilate what was heard; then the spiritual rays of light start to have an effect and to turn out as counterweight of matter. The time until the end is just still short, and still it is enough to change the will of a man, because with good will the influence out of the spiritual kingdom can achieve a change of thinking, what is apparent by the decreased desire for the world and its pleasures, for earthly possessions and honour and fame. A spiritual striving man withdraws from the world; he begins to take stock of himself and his attitudes of his inner being; he certainly still lives in the material world, but little touched by it, and for that reason the spiritual world can successfully have an effect on him, because it hands out in the same measure, what is given up of earthly good, only that it gives goods of immortal value, which help the soul to eternal life. The world must be sacrificed to be able to receive spiritual good; but where the eyes are still turned towards earthly matter, towards the world with its pleasures, spiritual good can hardly be supplied. But if you men would know, how short your earthly existence still is and that you, you who desire the world, then lose everything, what you now strive for, you would joyfully like to gather a wealth, which lasts for eternity. But you cannot be granted full knowledge, i.e., you are indeed told that it is so, but you are not forced to believe it, because you are to freely decide to give up matter, to exchange it for spiritual good. You must stand in the midst of the world and learn to despise it; you must have everything at your disposal and voluntarily relinquish it; you must break your heart away from it, although you are blessed with many goods earthly; you must sacrifice of that, what you love, to fellowman, who is in need. Then you receive everything, what you give away, back in immortal form; a treasure is send to you out of the spiritual kingdom, which enriches you unspeakably and which to lose you never need to fear. For this treasure you take over into the spiritual kingdom, so the end has come or you are recalled prematurely into eternity. Break away from matter; give it away voluntarily and change your desire, as long as there is still time, so that you do not need to fear the end, which brings decay of all that, what still surrounds you as matter. Gather spiritual goods for you, which do not pass, even so the whole earth passes, to be again fashioned anew. Amen. B.D. NR. 4901.
