I can only call, but not force them to enter the right way.

Confused thinking spiritual trouble. Free will.

And that it is, what I call spiritual trouble, that there certainly is a help and is done for you extremely amply by me; but that you men do not want to accept it and consequently determine the end yourselves, to which you are heading; I can help you; I also want to help you, but you must want to let yourselves be helped. For your will is free and will determine your lot for ever. Read more:

Confused thinking spiritual trouble. Free will.

26. December 1952. B.D. NR. 5565.

The thinking of men has been confused. And that is to be understood under spiritual trouble that they are without cognition; that they are far from truth and therefore also far from me, because they live without love, for love inevitably joins them together with me and with truth. How differently could they therefore be helped, than that they are always only admonished and stimulated to love. But love cannot be commanded to them; it can only be presented to them as the most important command, which must absolutely be fulfilled, if man wants to reach his destination on earth. Man must know that without love he advances not one step, but it cannot be demanded by force, because then this would not be love, but at best just an act, which is to feign love. You men are not allowed to forget that love is something divine; that I therefore gave you the love command, to show you the way to the becoming divine of your nature. But by no means I exert the smallest compulsion upon you, but what a "command" means in the meaning of the word. And so I leave it all to you; you are allowed to decide about yourselves; I can just bring you so far through instructions that you turn to the right way by yourselves. And for that reason I persistently make an effort to guide men into right thinking, to instruct them right, to send my word to them through servants completely devoted to me, to explain to them all pros and cons, so that they then make the right decision by themselves and do that, what leads them to the destination so that they live in love and become again that, what they were in the very beginning. But I come across hard resistance. Men do not accept my instructions full of love; they stand in so confused thinking that they are no longer able to grasp the simple, clear knowledge about the connexions and they also have no will for it. My loving words sound away at their ears and do not get through to the heart, and the power of my word cannot become effective at men. The spiritual trouble is gigantic, because the will of men must remain free and they themselves have no inner drive any more; they bear no desire for real enlightenment; they feel happy in the darkness of their spirit; they desire no light and if light comes to them, so they do not let its rays come into their hearts; they turn away and towards the wrong lights, which flash everywhere on the way. And I look full of mercy on my creatures, which I would like to make happy and who accept nothing out of my hands. I see how they walk along; each one on other paths, but do not enter that way, which certainly goes uphill, but surely leads to me. I also see those, who seek me, but do not let themselves be advised, where I am to be found, who must go many ways, before they come across the right way. I would like to spare them all the futile ways; I would like to make the ascent to me easy for them; I would like to associate a leader to each one. But I can always only call them with my enticing voice: Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. I can only call, but not force them to enter the right way. And they do not listen to my love call, because they do not recognize my voice, as long as they are without love. And that it is, what I call spiritual trouble, that there certainly is a help and is done for you extremely amply by me; but that you men do not want to accept it and consequently determine the end yourselves, to which you are heading; I can help you; I also want to help you, but you must want to let yourselves be helped. For your will is free and will determine your lot for ever.
Amen. B.D. NR. 5565.
