Chapter 150

THE LORD'S LOVING AND WISE INSTRUCTIONS TO MARTIN. HINTS ABOUT WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THE HEARTS OF THE THREE SUN-MAIDENS. MARTIN'S VEXATION AND THE LORD'S REASSURING WORDS.

150,1. (Say I): "My dearest Martin, your will and courage are very praiseworthy. However, you should never resolve upon a certain action in the heat of even a justified anger before you clearly understand the reason why you want to fight with a thousand swords like a lion.

150,2. A while ago I nominated you a master fisher of this world, and that you shall remain. And thus you shall keep the crown of valor proposed by Peter, for you have really handled the situation masterly. Just as My brother Peter has pointed out, it is extremely difficult to accomplish with these beings what you have accomplished, even though it was through My strength within you.

150,3. Do not think that because I had to restrain these three, they have disavowed the love in their hearts according to their lengthy speech. If that were the case, they would not have asked us to follow them and would not have talked so much anyway, for their wisdom is usually quite laconic.

150,4. But because their hearts became mightily attached to us, they talked so much and would still have gone on talking if we had raised any objections. But as we did not interrupt them, they had to come to an end eventually. I assure you that they departed from us reluctantly and can scarcely await that we follow them. As you will see, they will, in a moment, come back to us here, where we shall now abide for a while.

150,5. It would, therefore, be unfair if we judged them by their words, which were prompted only by jealousy - a jealousy which is the result of their newly-awakened love. They noticed that we were rather indifferent to their beauty, and that even with their ardent love they could not ingratiate themselves with us. So they resorted to a good-natured wisdom and intend to be of use to us wherever possible.

150,6. Ponder this for a while and then tell Me if you agree and whether you think it would be fair to fight them like a lion with a thousand swords."

150,7. (Martin, perplexed, thinks this over in all seriousness, and then says): "Oh, yes, of course, this is how it is! What a beast I am, what an ass and ox combined! Probably the only one in this vast, enlightened and better world!

150,8. For the sake of Your holy name, where did I have my eyes, my long ears, and my senses, anyway?

150,9. These sweet, loving hearts - and I wanted to - no, I must not say it for it is too silly! Look, there they are, already returning over a hillock! Oh, you sweet little children, come, oh, come! Your reception will be better this time!

150,10. But how can I now make good my great mistake? Probably they already know in all detail what I have said to You about them. How awkward this will be!"

150,11. (Say I): "Martin, do not go to extremes with your ardor; everything will work out. Think of your instruction as to the attitude you have to adopt here: namely, of love combined with outward earnestness, and you will always be the victor and a master in the art of fishing in these waters of the sun. Now, back to earnestness, for they are already quite close!"

150,12. (Says Martin): "O Lord, do give me a bit more insight and discernment so that in the future I may be a better judge in case the three glorious beings confront me again with their staggering wisdom. Otherwise, I cannot guarantee that I will not blunder once more!"

150,13. (Say I): "Do not worry about that. The way you are, you can be more useful to Me here than Peter and John, whose vision penetrates all the secrets of this world. For he who knows already in advance what fruit his efforts will bear as a result of the order of this world, has less confidence than one who, for lack of such clear vision, will treat these beings rather in accordance with the order of his own world. Therefore, stay the way you are and you will achieve the best possible results.

150,14. These human beings soon lose interest in a spirit when they find his wisdom to be equal to theirs or - as with Peter and John - far above theirs. In such cases, they become quite sarcastic and rather reserved. However, with spirits like you, they are the friendliest beings you can hope to find, and that is when they can be, so to speak, twisted round one's little finger. Therefore, you will be able to serve Me best the way you are. But now, silent, they are almost here!"
