As you want it, so is the lot of the soul after your death.

Will determines the measure of favour.

The will just needs to be good, then the ascent development is secured, then man is surrounded by so many good powers, who seek to transmit their will to him, which is completely meant for God, and then man will accept every favour offered to him and utilize it according to the divine will, and his soul will ascend and reach perfection.

Will determines the measure of favour.

27. December 1954. B.D. NR. 6146.

The measure of favour is not determining for the maturing of the soul, but your will to utilize the favours. For no matter how amply favours flow towards you, if you are not willing to accept and utilize them, so they are completely ineffective, and your soul does not profit from it in the slightest. Therefore the will determines the degree of maturity of your soul. As you want it, so is the lot of the soul after your death. And your will is again influenced from two sides - the light world and also the dark world seeks to win your will for it, and each one keeps that before your eyes, what it can offer you - light and happiness in the spiritual kingdom and also earthly goods, which are mortal and as a result mean a dark sphere for the soul. And so you would seriously think about that, what you can achieve, you would also be more careful, before you would decide. Everything what points you upwards, is favour - everything, what is advantageous for your soul, is favour - but you determine, whether favour becomes effective in you. Again and again the opportunity is offered to you men, to walk on the way upwards, and all these opportunities are favours, which God's great love gives you. And every time you can achieve a spiritual advantage, so you let yourselves be seized by the favour, when you no longer resist at all - then your soul will always demand that, what helps it to maturity, and God's favour will always flow more amply towards it. But differently with the unwilling souls, which certainly need much help, but remain unimpressed by the divine gifts of favour, which reject every help - which always keep their eyes directed towards the world, pursue all blinding lights attentively there and do not feel the beneficent gentle light of divine favour. The same measure of favour is sent to them as to the former, but they do not use it - they leave it standing unnoticed, and their soul remains in darkness; no power is supplied to it, but which every soul is allowed to receive amply, when the will of man allows this. For that reason the one can easily reach perfection, while the other remains deep down - although favours were amply at the disposal of both. They were used by the one, but left unnoticed by the other, and the soul also matures accordingly, or it remains in the old state, in darkness. The will cannot be forced as far as God is concerned and consequently also not by the powers full of light, who look after men on earth - but nevertheless in their love they try everything to change the will, that it may turn to God, that man may give up the resistance against God and now gratefully receives from his hand, what brings about blessings to him. The will just needs to be good, then the ascent development is secured, then man is surrounded by so many good powers, who seek to transmit their will to him, which is completely meant for God, and then man will accept every favour offered to him and utilize it according to the divine will, and his soul will ascend and reach perfection.
Amen. B.D. NR. 6146.
