It is indeed also still doubtful, whether the enlightenments are accepted as plausible, but for that reason the intellect has been given to man, that he can think about it and he now feels satisfied by the explanations or rejects them according to his love for truth and his desire for truth.

Acknowledging God as original power. Enlightenments.

14. March 1954. B.D. NR. 5902.

The spiritual connection must first get recognized, i.e., men must accept explanations about it, move them in their thoughts and think them to be possible, only then they can also win faith in an earth life purpose, in a task which they must fulfil. To alone set them the task without an explanation, why the task must get fulfilled, would be senseless and would just promote blind faith, but which has no value. It is indeed also still doubtful, whether the enlightenments are accepted as plausible, but for that reason the intellect has been given to man, that he can think about it and he now feels satisfied by the explanations or rejects them according to his love for truth and his desire for truth. A man, who would like to have questions solved about the connection of all things, about the purpose and aim of creatures and of creations, will first listen to an explanation regarding this and express his view about it. Truth will also hold in itself the power, to have an influence on the thinking of man in the right way, therefore man will not be able deny a logic of the knowledge presented to him and think it to be possible, without being firmly convinced about it for the time being. But the conviction depends on his cast of mind, on his way of life, on the direction of his will. For he can only recognize truth as truth, when his will is good - but then he also acknowledges God as original power, as that centre, with which everything created stands in connection and in which everything is substantiated legally. Then he wins faith in him, but which is no blind faith, but is a convinced faith, which now awakens to life, which now determines his thinking and wanting, his acting and his striving. Because now he can no longer consider earth life as end in itself; he knows it, why earth life has been given to him. All connections are known to him, and he now lives his life on this earth accordingly. Blind faith cannot be demanded from a man, because his intellect must face it. But the intellect will only then be negative towards truth, when it is ruled by the opponent of God, what is alone determined by the direction of his will. That a bad man cannot believe, is fully comprehensible, for his thinking is completely confused by the counter power. He is not of a good will and therefore much more receptive to the lie and to the error, while a man with good will cannot believe only so long, as pure truth is not presented to him. And he should and must before demand a truthful enlightenment about meaning and purpose of earth existence - to which he also certainly will not close his mind, when he desires to stand in truth. And this enlightenment concerns the spiritual connection, the cause and the effect of spiritual processes, which are indeed only then fully comprehensible to man, when he is receptive for deep spiritual truths, but are enough initially to stimulate him to think and to find faith. And according to his desire for truth, the further knowledge will now be sent to him, but which first necessitates the acknowledgement of a highly perfect entity, with which man is now willing to get into contact. Every help is offered to him, so that he awakens to life, for the soul is not to remain in the state of death - in the state of lack of light, without cognition and without faith; it is to win again light and power in earth life, which it had once given up voluntarily.
Amen. B.D. NR. 5902.
