If the longing for truth would be more found among men, it would truly not be such a great spiritual darkness among them, for their thinking would be directed right as result of the longing for truth. Read more:

Lethargy in thinking.

27. June 1955. B.D. NR. 6296.

The more the world captivates man, the more indifferent truth is to him, the less he desires it, and he accepts everything unthinkingly what is presented to him as truth - or he rejects everything unthinkingly. For his heart does not long for it, to hear truth. And again you therefore see in the world a great danger for your soul, for without truth you do not live appropriately; you do not know at all about meaning and purpose of your earth life, because you receive no real explanation, and you therefore also do not live consciously, but always only chasing after earthly goods, but of which you know after all, that they are transitory, that you can take nothing with you, as soon as your earth live has ended. But you also do not believe in a living on after death - again for that reason, because it is indifferent to you, because you want to know nothing about it and because through this your indifference can also never reach the inner conviction, that life is not over with the death of the body. God's servants on earth would find far more taking up preparedness, when the longing for truth would exist in fellowman, but they are more interested in everything else than the most important: to win real cognition and to now lead earth life according to this cognition. And for that reason everything is to be condemned, what increases the indifference in men. It is to be condemned, when they are instructed, that they do not need to think about it, what is requested of them to believe - that they are only allowed to accept that, what is offered to them from a certain side, and that they are relieved of all responsibility, so long they entrust and subordinate themselves to alleged representatives of God. All such teachings contribute to lead man astray to lethargy in thinking; they contribute to let other people think for them and to feel themselves irresponsible. And as also a love work does not change the thinking of such a man, he remains ignorant until the end of his life and ensnared in error. But only truth leads to God. He is therefore also still very far away from God, when he departs from earth. If the longing for truth would be more found among men, it would truly not be such a great spiritual darkness among them, for their thinking would be directed right as result of the longing for truth. And a right thinking man now also lives according to the will of God and by this means always comes closer to him. But men only want to broaden their knowledge about the earthly, because spiritual knowledge brings no earthly success to them, but through earthly knowledge they can improve their bodily wellbeing and for that reason they also close themselves to everything else, even so it is offered to them as particular gift of favour. And for that reason earth remains veiled in darkness, for the light only there forces a passage, where it is desired, but never there, where its shine is prevented.
Amen. B.D. NR. 6296.
