But many men need very long time for this cognition.

And for that reason also destructions of all kind are a blessing in a certain meaning, because men lose their material possession in this way and are again and again referred to the transitoriness of the earthly, and the most severe accidents or natural disasters can bring in to men an extreme great spiritual advantage, for God helps them, even so in a painful way, to separate themselves from that, what chains them to earth, so that they find the way upwards easier.

Transitoriness. Destructions.

30. June 1955. B.D. NR. 6299.

Everything earthly is transient. There is no man, who would not know this, and nevertheless there are only few men, who heed this fact and do not strive for earthly goods; there are only few men, who strive for the immortal - but the majority uses all power, to just come into the possessions of earthly goods despite the knowledge about their transitoriness. And this justifies the question, how the desire for it could possibly be taken from these, without curtailing free will. The knowledge about the transitoriness alone is not enough, so long man can just enjoy his possession for the time of his life. And the possibility only exists, to again and again put the transitoriness before his eyes, by him incurring the loss of own possession through effect on the part of humans or through expression in nature. Only when man recognizes the hopelessness of his efforts, only when he recognizes, that he himself does not have it in his power to secure his possession for himself, his striving can slowly change and turn to other aims. But many men need very long time for this cognition, until they get tired of the chasing after earthly possession, and as it were they waste the valuable earth life time, which they were supposed to use for the acquisition of spiritual goods. And for that reason also destructions of all kind are a blessing in a certain meaning, because men lose their material possession in this way and are again and again referred to the transitoriness of the earthly, and the most severe accidents or natural disasters can bring in to men an extreme great spiritual advantage, for God helps them, even so in a painful way, to separate themselves from that, what chains them to earth, so that they find the way upwards easier. Again and again God shows men obviously and unequivocally, that it is foolish, to strive for earthly goods, and he points out to them, to set a spiritual aim for themselves. He again and again allows it, that works of destruction are carried out through human will, through means of which fellowmen suffer, as he himself also intervenes directly and takes from men, whereat their heart is set on - always only for the purpose, that they are to direct their whole striving on it, what remains and follows them into eternity. So long man does not have a good look at it, that he uses his power wrongly - so long he only pays attention to the earthly-material, so long he chases after dead aims, so long his earth life is an idling and completely unsuccessful for his soul. And for that reason the decline of the earthly will come to light more and more clearly, more and more painful events will startle men and the destructions be more and more powerful, to which the life of man and earthly possession fall a victim, and it is the last purpose of that, that men are pointed to the transitoriness - so that they consider and strive to acquire immortal goods for themselves, which can never ever be taken from them. For it is the time of the end, where nothing will remain as it is, where only those goods are assessed, which are immortal and which every man can still acquire for himself.
Amen. B.D. NR. 6299.
