The key to wisdom is love, not the intellect.

19. February 1955. B.D. NR. 6193.

No field is so disputed as the spiritual, because where no proofs can be produced there men will never come to an agreement - but every representative of his opinion believes himself to be right, he believes to have truth. Every earthly knowledge man can rationally extend, he also can back it up with proofs or again and again convince himself of being wrong and change his thinking. He can get to the bottom of it and come to a firm result, which now can be accepted as irrefutable by those who do research on the same field and mull over it. But it is different with spiritual knowledge - with the field, which lies outside of earthly knowledge and which can never be researched intellectually. No matter what spiritual knowledge is supplied to men - it can never be proved, but always only has to be believed. And it is understandable that men express and represent many and different thoughts as being right, because men are in their nature different and the explanation of the spiritual field is closely connected with the makeup of man - with his spiritual maturity. For not the intellect researches this field, but the heart. This is incomprehensible for pure rational types of men and still a fact, which proves itself. Even men with highly developed rational thinking will not arrive at concurring results in the spiritual field as long as the heart is not taking part in their research. But then the opinions tally completely, because then the right key to the gate of wisdom is found and applied. And this key is love, which is lighted in the heart - which now also enlightens the spirit of man so that he cannot help it than to think right because now his thoughts are directed by God and these thoughts are guaranteed wisdom. There is no getting at rationalists with such an explanation until also in them love arouses. Then they grasp this mystery - then they understand that God reserves the truth for himself and only gives it to those, who unite with him through love. Also such won knowledge is now not provable, but to man himself the inner conviction is enough to know that he has the truth - to know that no earthly scientist can ever teach him differently and could take away his conviction. Who once has accepted the truth from God himself through his spirit, can also no longer doubt or wants to expand his knowledge somewhere else. He has taken possession of the spiritual field, God himself has initiated him, and for him there is no return to the field of earthly science, for him there is no change of his thinking, because truth has seized him, because God himself has seized him, who is eternal truth. But the way into this field was and is love. And never will a man be able to research it without love, which is why all spiritual opinions will remain disputed as long as they are not won on the way of the heart. Spiritual knowledge is a knowledge that cannot be proved and still becomes full conviction as soon as through a life of love the union with God has been established; he now himself teaches man and gives him insight to all questions, who speaks to him through the spirit, who works in him, as he himself has promised.
Amen. B.D. NR. 6193.
