For this power is a radiation of that being, which has created everything.

 

Bertha Dudde:

 

Earth life end in itself or means for purpose. Nature of God.

8. August 1953. B.D. NR. 5742.

Learn to not consider the world as an end in itself, but as means for a purpose. Then you will also assess your earth life differently; you will not make it the aim of all your wishes and desires, but seek your aim elsewhere. Who considers the earthly life of worth only, who only strives for things, which are earthly and make the bodily life pleasant, who strives towards it to just create a carefree earth life bringing fulfilment to him, he also considers this earth life as an end in itself, and his thinking is wrong. For it is only a means for the purpose. Earth life is given to man to acquire in it a different life; a life that lasts for ever, but not lived by the body, but by the soul only. Who reflects on, that he inhabits the earth for only a short time, that he himself cannot determine the time of his walk on earth, that another being standing above him determines the duration of his earth life, who reflects on, that he himself also does not determine the course of his earth life, but it must be covered fate like by him, as the being standing above him wants, he should already see from it that a purpose is involved with his earth life, that some success is to be produced in the time of the walk on this earth. But men do not reflect on this, who are turned towards the material world only and want as it were live it up. On the contrary, the fact that their life is a limited one, is for them cause to take away from it, what they just can, for they do not think of the hereafter, but of the present only, which they seek to fashion according to their wishes and desires. They demand proofs about it that there is a continuing on of life; they assess only that, what they see, and avert all thoughts, which remind of a hereafter. They assess earth life too high and would still not be able to assess it high enough, so they look at it with spiritual eyes. And the world truly offers them pleasures enough, which they do not want to give up for the sake of a to them not provable life after death. And after all they could create proofs for them, when they would seriously wish it. For nothing on earth is constant; everything passes, as also man himself passes according to the body. But one thing also remains for the most unbelieving man undeniably: the power conserving and always creating new everything. For demonstrably creation remains, that is it renews itself constantly and therefore gives evidence of a power, which cannot pass for ever and will therefore also work for ever. And to connect this power with oneself should be the endeavour of each one man, then man himself would also be convinced that it is likewise active in him and cannot pass after death. Since man is a living, power proving work of creation, this power must therefore also be in him and just leave the cover at death, but as power still being able to continue to have an effect in the universe. It therefore just changes its stay but cannot pass for ever. For this power is a radiation of that being, which has created everything. And who has once won this cognition, he also just looks at earth life as a transitional state, where the power has manifested itself in a man for the purpose of certain work to overcome everything material, to be able to be active completely free after the death of the body, but what is only possible through the overcoming of matter, not though striving for it and increasing it and consequently chaining the power to things, which have no continued existence. These things then burden the immortal of man, the soul, which is now powerless, although it is in itself the power radiation of God, but it is still surrounded by thick covers, which take all freedom from it, but which it could certainly gain for itself in earth life, when it had recognized the purpose of it and striven for it.
Amen. B.D. NR. 5742.
