Blessing of illness and suffering. Maturing.

23. August 1951. B.D. NR. 5194.

The decline of the body is often a salutary warning for man, who is still too much turned towards the world and for that reason endangers the soul. He must once learn to recognize that for nature’s part a stop can occur, and out of this cognition becomes aware, what afterwards comes, when the body has become completely unsuitable for this earth. Man must often be warned and admonished, as long as he does not remember his soul out of his own drive. Bodily sufferings, illnesses and loss of bodily functions must therefore also be seen as a means for maturation of the soul, since they can change the thinking of a man considerably and because of that are also often applied as means of healing for the soul, so it is in danger, to become a slave to spiritual death. But not always do they fulfil their purpose. Then a state of stubbornness occurs, a complete turning away from the divine-spiritual, and man seeks to win everything from life despite illness and misfortune, which have affected his body. Nothing is without meaning, what is granted to a man – illness of the body often brings about the recovery of the soul; then it has been a blessing, because man learnt to despise the world, after he had to do without it and he sought and found replacement in the spiritual world. He is allowed to receive delicious goods as compensation for those goods, which the world denies him and which he now recognizes as worthless. But to this belongs that he humbly bends under the fate, which was imposed on him for the sake of his soul, that he bears in submission, what certainly appears difficult to him, however can also be overcome. As soon as man has a small faith, he feels the hand of God over him and submits devotedly to the will of God; and then he can only win, but never lose, therefore also not be felt sorry for, because he possesses far more than a man full of health and bodily power, who has no connection with that kingdom, which will also once be his stay after bodily death. Decisive alone is the degree of maturity, which the soul has at the departing from earth. Everything, what can contribute to the increase of maturity, God applies, even so man does not feel it as beneficent, as long as he is without cognition. Once he will see the blessing of suffering and of illness and thank God for the application of means, which were successful, without curtailing the will of man. A sick body is not so bad than a sick soul, and if it is to regain its health, the body must endure illness, until the soul has become tolerant, until it directs the look towards heaven and has learnt to see the world only as passing test school. In future it will be able to rise carefree and unimpeded to high regions of the spirit and eternally thank its creator for the favour done to it, having let the body suffer, so that the soul recovers its health. Amen. B.D. NR. 5194.
