Final stage as man. Free will.

20. September 1954. B.D. NR. 6060.

It is a long way until you reach perfection. But the longest distance you have covered, and only a short way still remains for you, that you reach your destination. But this short stretch of road requires a right directed will, while before you walked up as it were naturally. The earth life as man is this short stretch of road, where your will alone decides, whether you walk upwards. For a wrongly directed will can also lead you back again or let you remain on the same level. But when you consider the endless long way before - when you consider, that you have reached shortly before the aim, then you should do everything to not sink back. You should not endanger the already achieved maturity, but seek to eagerly increase - you should want to reach perfection, and to now live so as it is God's will, he who announces this his will through his word. For that his word is sent to you, is his constant striving, and therefore every man also knows about the will of God. He knows it, that a life is to be led in divine order; he knows the commands of love for God and the neighbour, because these commands have already been put into the heart feeling wise. Moreover he will be instructed by God directly or through messengers - fate will instruct him; at himself he will experience the law of the eternal order, and he will for that reason know exactly, how the individual man is to behave to his fellowmen - and through the right relationship to his fellowmen he will also establish the right relationship to God. His will must just be directed right, therefore be good. That alone decides, whether his life brings in for him the maturity of the soul or just remains an idling. But the result of his will is infinitely serious for it means: final freedom or renewed constraint. Men do not know, what earth life means for the individual, that it is a short time of favour, where everything is granted to them, to reach the final freedom out of form, and that they also have the power, to reach the aim, when the will just strives for it. But the will is free and for that reason earth life so significant. But man has reached a degree of maturity, that it is possible for him, to give the right direction to his will, for also the intellect is given to him, so that he certainly can choose his wanting, thinking and acting. He is no longer, as before, compelled to his doing, but can undertake everything free out of himself - therefore also refrain from doing, what contradicts the will of God - but as he can also defy his will. For that reason, he also takes responsibility for his life, and the wrong use of his will can bring in for him death instead of life. Then the endless long way of ascent development can be of no avail; the soul - the spiritual in man - can again sink back into deepest darkness and must languish again eternities in hardest cover - until it must once again pass the same test of will to finally be able to become free.
Amen. B.D. NR. 6060.
