Seek to bring everything to its purpose, and remember in the process above all your own soul that it frees itself in the midst of the world from earthly desires, that it may learn to recognize the spiritual kingdom as its place of start and again strives for it in the serious will to reach the reunification with God, which is the purpose and aim of earth life.

World only means for purpose. Overcoming of matter.

18. March 1951. B.D. NR. 5087.

The world never ever gives you fulfilment, because it still takes from you in the end everything, what you possess of earthly goods. The world just gives to your flesh body, but not to the soul, and since the flesh body passes, the soul stands poor and naked at the gate to eternity, when it has not got hold of spiritual goods on earth. The world only gives you seemingly, but in reality it takes from you the right to eternal life. You indeed stand in the midst of the world, it has so to speak been given to you as the place to stay, and the soul had to agree with that to cover a probationary period in this world. And it can also pass this probationary period with success, when man sees the earthly world exactly only as means for the purpose, as means of testing, when he does not let it become lord over him himself, but always remains its lord, when he does not make himself to the slave of that, what surrounds him, but always strive to overcome earthly matter in the face of his earth task, when he uses it well, where it is at his disposal, but in a sense wanted by God, by him helping matter itself to redemption when he sees everything earthly-material as that, what it is in reality judged spiritual, which likewise goes the way of redemption and is grateful for every opportunity to serving activity. Then matter will never become lord over man; then he will seek something for himself, what is worth striving for to him, because it cannot pass. Then he will send goods to the soul, which mean a true wealth and remain conserved for it also after the laying down of the flesh body. Standing in this cognition, man also does not consider matter as fulfilment of his desire; it is just a necessary means for him to cover the earth course successfully, and therefore the world with all its attractions and enticements also loses value for him. He knows it that they are just pretence goods and at the same time a strong danger to also lose the immortal goods. For that reason you are not to love the world, because this love just earns you the loss of eternal life; you are to learn to recognize it as that, what it is, as kingdom of the opponent of God, as massing together of the immature spiritual, which would like to pull again the already more mature spiritual down to it. You are to learn to recognize it as blind and deceptive light to not let your soul recognize the right light; you are to know that the world will once pass and you must for that reason strive for that, what is immortal. Then the earthly world will lose all danger for you, on the contrary, you yourselves will be able to contribute much for it, to also help earthly matter to ascent development, by you creating opportunity for it to serve, i.e. giving material things its purpose by you creating useful objects, so that the spiritual in them serves and in this way walks upwards. Seek to bring everything to its purpose, and remember in the process above all your own soul that it frees itself in the midst of the world from earthly desires, that it may learn to recognize the spiritual kingdom as its place of start and again strives for it in the serious will to reach the reunification with God, which is the purpose and aim of earth life. Amen. B.D. NR. 5087.
