Uniting of the soul with the spirit.

8. July 1955. B.D. NR. 6306.

When the soul of man unites itself with its spirit, when it therefore leaves the guidance to it, man cannot go wrong, and all his thinking, wanting and acting will now be directed right. But when does the soul unite with its spirit? This is that moment, where man, out of most inner conviction, learns to believe in a God and creator, whose creature he himself is, and when he has the longing, to get into contact with this recognized God - when his thoughts are turned to him and he inwardly wishes, to enter into a relationship with him, which is pleasing to God when he adapts himself positive to God. Then he is seized by the divine in him; the spirit slumbering in him directs him from that very hour, and he will feel inwardly pushed to live so, as it is God's will; he will kindle love in him, because this is already the work of the spirit in man and because now also the spirt can noticeably express itself, because man, through his way of life in love gives him the right to it. Love work is therefore first the sign of a spirit been awakened to life, for the spirit determines the soul - the thinking, feeling, and wanting in man - to do it, and one can certainly say of a man active in love, that his soul has united with the spirit. And then man also lives, next to his earthly life, a spiritual life; then his thoughts will not alone deal with the world and earthly things, then he will often mentally stay in that kingdom, where he seeks God; he will deal with questions, which lie outside of earthly knowledge, and he now as it were asks the spirit working in him these questions, which also answers them for him, although man only imagines himself "mentally active". The longing having a right relationship with God irrevocably results in the uniting of his soul with the spirit, and this longing will certainly be fulfilled for him, for it is a spiritual request, which man sends to the creator of the universe, which is heard and always met, because it is the purpose of man at all, to enter into the right relationship with him. But then the spirit takes over completely the guidance of man, and then he also securely reaches his aim. The divine in man will always express itself, when his thoughts seriously take the way to God, for then God himself also works on him through his spirit, and every thought turned to him is a step upwards, and if this thought is consciously pursued, by man sending a prayer to his God and creator from eternity, so God will also soon reveal himself as father to him, for the prayer is the bridge, which establishes the connection from man to God. But then man is in best care, for the entity God seizes him and has an effect through the spirit on man, that he always more decreases the cleft between himself and God, for the spirit constantly pushes towards the father spirit, and the longing in man, to come closer to God, will always become greater, until it finds fulfilment in the complete joining together with him through love - which now fills the nature of man, because eternal love itself works in him.
Amen. B.D. NR. 6306.
