Social contributions.

20. September 1955. B.D. NR. 6360.

How often have you men to rely on, that you are helped, and how often is it possible for you, to reciprocate it, for no man can lean himself on himself alone; everyone needs the help of his fellowman, as also everyone comes into situations, to help his fellowman. But the endeavour of men goes there, to make himself completely independent from the neighbour and to also shirk all assistance from himself. They seek that, what should be voluntary assistance, to settle legally, and each one seeks again to draw out of this regulation the greatest most possible advantage for himself. That, what would be extremely high assessed for the soul of the individual as unselfish neighbourly love, is changed into an involuntary contribution, and there is not much use in it for the soul, so long every voluntary love activity is eliminated. According to human estimation all earthly trouble could be averted from men in this way, and this is certainly also the endeavour of those, who feel responsible for the serious difficulties of men, because they are not to be kept secret and burden those. And so long love lessness prevails among men, such endeavours are also a blessing insofar, as that men do not come to an end in misery. However, the spiritual low of men cannot be removed in this way, for to that end work in unselfish neighbourly love is necessary. Men must be touched by the trouble of fellowman, so that this love is kindled in them. Trouble must be among men, which is of such kind, that it stimulates a man willing to love to love activity. In every way fellowman can be helped through comforting encouragement, through loving sympathy, through active aid. But in human life it is very particularly about the overcoming of matter - about the change of selflove to unselfish neighbourly love. What is desirable for man himself, from it he is to break away, to turn it to fellowman, who is in trouble. For that reason also possession is distributed unevenly, to exactly stimulate this will to give, because man can at the same time practise himself in the overcoming of matter and because by this means he makes the greatest gift for himself, when he breaks away from material good, to alleviate the trouble of fellowman. Only, what voluntarily is given away, that will be amply repaid to man, for only the free will proves love, whereas all other contributions, which man must do, completely do without love, indeed can rather harden the heart of man, who for that reason forces back all will in himself to give, because he believes having done enough for the wellbeing of fellowmen. But no matter how very much men make an effort, to alleviate in this way economic trouble - trouble nevertheless approaches man in another form, on the one hand as blessing for himself, but on the other hand to again determine the heart of fellowman to help - to touch it, that the love spark ignites, that love does not completely cool among men. And often exactly those men are affected by trouble of nonmaterial kind, whose hearts are very hardened, that they must go another way, if help is to be theirs: The pleasure in earthly possession is taken from them - what they did not want themselves to give away for the alleviation of the trouble of others, that they themselves can now no longer enjoy. Matter now loses its value, and blessed that man, who now works with it in the right way - who now voluntarily gives it up, to let the suffering fellowman have it. Blessed, who still gains the love of fellowmen in the last time through good works, which alone follow him into eternity. Then his trouble was not unsuccessful for his soul.
Amen. B.D. NR. 6360.
