Degree of maturity secures right thinking. Spirit work.

27. March 1954. B.D. NR. 5915.

A certain degree of maturity also secures right thinking to men - the enlightenment of the spirit and consequently also cognition of truth. And therefore you are also to strive for this degree of maturity. Through the fulfilment of the divine commands you are to lead your soul to perfection; you are to acquire love power for yourselves through the performing of unselfish love works - you are to do everything to become the image of God. For with increased soul maturity you also always step into brighter light, and that means, that you learn to tell the difference between the truth and the error, the genuine and the false, the real and the pretence. But a certain degree of maturity is indispensable for that purpose. For an imperfect soul is also blind in the spirit, and the soul is imperfect so long, as it lives outside of the divine order, but which is re-established through the fulfilling of the divine commands. Work on your soul, that it matures, so that you arrive at the light of cognition. Otherwise the light cannot be given to you, for in the immature state you would not be able to see it, because you are blind in the spirit, as long as you are imperfect. But if you stand in the light, in cognition, as result of your soul maturity, then you also do not need to fear erroneous teachings, for you will recognize them immediately as erroneous. But the error finds good ground and can spread extremely fast, where men make no preparations to improve their immature state of their soul - where they are unable, to recognize error as such. And then it has a very corrupting effect; it darkens the spiritual state always more, because at the same time it also holds man back from the work on his soul, for an erroneous teaching will never demand the fulfilment of the divine commands, because this would illuminate it itself. Therefore, it cannot strongly enough be indicated, that the spirit in man is only illuminated through lover work and that, who desires to stand in truth, who does not want to be deceived through erroneous teachings, must go the way of love whatever happens, which brings in for him the illuminating of the spirit. Not the clever man protects himself from error, but only the good, willing to love, because he sees the things, as they are, and does not let himself be deceived by pretence. But pretence is everything, what lets man become lukewarm at soul work. Pretence is everything, what is not according to truth and - because it does not stimulate to the transformation of the nature - never results in the state of cognition, but will always appeal to men, who strive for no eternity aim; for these are blind in the spirit and feel happy in their blindness. These do not seek truth; they do not seek light and will therefore also remain in darkness.
Amen. B.D. NR. 5915.
