The will is nothing else than a jutting out or a striving out of the I into the sphere outside of it.

Free will. Earth fate.

But thinking and wanting are not to be confused with carrying out of the will because to that end a power is necessary, which the being can have or also not but the lack of power does not abolish the ability of wanting that man may be forced to this or that acting fate wise, is a great misconception, when as a result it is claimed, that man may then therefore have no free will. For not the acting is decisive, but the will, which accompanies every act but about which I know for eternity, what should now also explain the fate of the individual, which is based on exactly this his will.

 

Bertha Dudde:

 

Free will. Earth fate.

30. August 1953. B.D. NR. 5757.

My plan of salvation is fixed for eternity, i.e., everything unrolls according to a plan, which has been determined by my love and wisdom, because I recognized from eternity what is appropriate, and because I therefore apply this to make real healing possible for the beings. Therefore also the fate of the individual man is laid down according to my thought of salvation, because I also know about the will of man, because every stirring and direction of the will is known to me for eternity. But this will is and remains free, even so I know about it for eternity.

That is incomprehensible to you men that man is not pushed to his thinking, wanting and acting; that it is completely up to him to use his will towards every direction; but that I have already fashioned the fate of man according to this will, to have an effect on this will in the imaginably most favourite way and in this way to obtain highest possible maturity during his earth life. I always just want to give him the opportunity to change his will, therefore to connect with me, which the being once wanted to dissolve. And the earth fate imposed on him is to achieve this. The change of his thinking is therefore of more importance than that what he determined through some position of constraint to that end carries out. The will as such is not always the same as the carrying out of a thought. The will is the innermost stirring in man and the will can also be directed to something completely unachievable, appearing impossible to carry out for him. And exactly this will it is, which gets assessed, for which man must take responsibility. Acts can certainly follow from this will, which man then considers as fate wise caused and which let him deny free will and they are still first based on free will, but which has been recognized by me already for eternity and was cause that I have fashioned his earth fate so, as it now fulfils itself at him. You can indeed now also set against, that also your thinking may be subject to a law-governed compulsion. And my word must now here be enough for you, that neither I as God and father from eternity nor my opponent will influence your thinking compulsorily; that you can defend yourselves against every thought, which comes from below; when you want, that only thoughts from above touch you and vice versa. Your will is and remains decisive, which is subject to no force. And for that reason you must first clear up for yourselves, what you really understand under "will". As beings able to think with consciousness of self your I must therefore create a mental content for itself; it must move in a sphere, which appeals to it the I must be able to assert itself in the sphere created by itself and be able to freely decide about itself. The will is nothing else than a jutting out or a striving out of the I into the sphere outside of it. Thought and will are inseparable ideas, for a being able to think can only through the will submit its thinking to proof. But thinking and wanting are not to be confused with carrying out of the will because to that end a power is necessary, which the being can have or also not but the lack of power does not abolish the ability of wanting that man may be forced to this or that acting fate wise, is a great misconception, when as a result it is claimed, that man may then therefore have no free will. For not the acting is decisive, but the will, which accompanies every act but about which I know for eternity, what should now also explain the fate of the individual, which is based on exactly this his will.
Amen. B.D. NR. 5757.
