For the material world has been added to man for the overcoming; therefore he is to fulfil the desire of the body only so far, as it is necessary for the preservation of it, but never forget the needs of the soul, which are of spiritual kind and only to still in the kingdom of the spiritual.

Connection to the spiritual kingdom. Overcoming.

5. November 1954. B.D. NR. 6099.

Have you succeeded to turn the back on the world and to strive for the spiritual kingdom, so you will hardly have to fear a relapse, for your serious will is recognizable, and therefore spiritual help can be granted to you, which is stronger than all attempts of the opponent, to drag you back into his area. There is only one danger for you men, and that is the world - the earthly joys and temptations, which want to deaden your soul, that it is to have no desire for the spiritual world. If this danger is seriously countered through turning away from the world, through turning to God and his kingdom, then the soul has already won and the opponent of God lost his influence, who always just seeks having an effect on men through the material world. You all certainly stand in this earthly world; your bodily needs are certainly always of earthly kind, and you cannot free yourselves completely from it, because your desire is caused bodily. But it is a difference, whether your soul only desires earthly comfort or whether it only grants the body the most necessary and its desire is more spiritually directed. For the material world has been added to man for the overcoming; therefore he is to fulfil the desire of the body only so far, as it is necessary for the preservation of it, but never forget the needs of the soul, which are of spiritual kind and only to still in the kingdom of the spiritual. Therefore man is to strive for this as the most important, and he is to see it as his earth task, that he makes the spiritual kingdom accessible to the soul - but what can always only then happen, when attention is paid to the earthly world only so far, as it is absolutely necessary. Through innumerable threads the earth is connected with the spiritual kingdom, and where a man seizes such a thread, the connection with the spiritual kingdom is also established, and its inhabitants help the man, that he can climb up rung by rung and is finally so far anchored in this kingdom, that he hardly any more pays attention to the earthy world. But the separation must be carried out on the part of man, and indeed in complete free will. Man must have recognized the earthly world as worthless for the soul, and he must seek to give real values to the soul, which he can always only find in the spiritual kingdom, why his striving is only just spiritual - when he has overcome matter, the earthly world with its temptations. Before you men do not give up this world, the spiritual world can never get opened for you, but to be able to overcome the world, you must ask God for power and in this way testify your will to him, which would like to turn to him - and the power will be sent to you, for it is the serious will to God, which is now reciprocated with obvious help by light beings on behalf of God. For now they are entitle to more right than the opponent of God, and they truly use their right and help man, that he may reach his aim.
Amen. B.D. NR. 6099.
