For arrogance is share of him, who has brought you all to fall, for he wanted to rise up against me; he wanted to be acknowledged as lord and god from eternity, although he knew it, that he had taken his beginning from me. Read more:

Spiritual pride. Humility is the bridge.

6. December 1953. B.D. NR. 5820.

Spiritual pride leads into ruin. Who approaches me in deepest humility, he is received by me with open arms, but who does not bend, who believes himself being exalted, him I overlook, and he also walks past me, because he does not seek me there, where I am. The spiritual overbearing does not recognize my voice; he does not recognize me myself in those words, which sound towards him, and for that reason he lets them die away at his ear; he does not hear that, what could bring rescue to him - he rejects, because he believes not needing it to get instructed, because he thinks himself being knowing and would also like to fill fellowman with his knowledge, but does not accept a gift from him. I cannot come close to the one of spiritual overbearing, because humility alone is the bridge from him to me, because the one with spiritual overbearing is separated from me through a cleft, which exactly only humility can bridge. Arrogance was the cause of the defection from me, for it eliminates love, and lack of love will always separate the being from me. But humility also proves love; it proves the cognition of defectiveness and therefore also the way of return to me. Full of love I bend down to my child, which comes to me in deepest humility of the heart and asks me for mercy and help. But a man will never express or also just think such a request, who carries the spirit of overbearing in him - he will never take the way to me and ask me for help, for he does not believe needing this help and is still so out and out far away from me, that he needs great help, to again reach upwards. For arrogance is share of him, who has brought you all to fall, for he wanted to rise up against me; he wanted to be acknowledged as lord and god from eternity, although he knew it, that he had taken his beginning from me. This arrogance was his fall into the depth, for it was the opposite of love, which I wanted to be testified to by the first created being. Who thinks himself great, he is in reality in great depth; who thinks himself exalted, he stands in reality below the other, whom he despises. Who believes himself knowing, but does not walk in humility, his knowledge is wrong, and he is in the deepest darkness of the spirit, for arrogance is the enemy of truth and of right cognition - for truth is divine; it is a gift of favour, which gets imparted to everyone, who in humility confesses his ignorance and desires truth. To the humble I give my favour - the humble reaches everything with me, because he prays simply and intimately and gains my love in the feeling of his unworthiness and my love is always ready to give to him. And so only alone he will find me, who walks on the way of humility, and also only him I will give my favour, my love and truth - but never a man, who is of overbearing spirit.
Amen. B.D. NR. 5820.
