Chapter 49 - The soul of the somnambulist purifies itself.

49,1. Zorel starts to sigh in his sleep and some think that he will now awake.

49,2. But I say to them: “O definitely not! That was only the first stage of the trance and he will sleep on for over an hour. He will soon start to speak again, but from another and higher stage of the life of his soul. The first stage consisted in the soul being unwound from its carnal and sensual worldly passions, which he only saw as illnesses on the physical image of his soul and which invoked in him the deepest loathing. To cure such illnesses of the soul there is no remedy other than firstly, recognition, then deep loathing and finally a firm desire to eliminate them completely as soon as possible. Once the firm will is there, healing makes progress more easily.

49,3. Pay attention to him as he will soon start to speak again! If he should again ask you about something, friend Zinka, then answer him just in your mind. He will hear your thoughts and understand you very well!”

49,4. I had nearly finished giving Zinka his instructions, when Zorel started speaking again and said: “Look, I shed tears over my great misery and a pool was formed from my tears like Lake Siloah in Jerusalem. Now I am bathing myself in this pool and see how the water in the pool is healing the many wounds, ulcers and swellings on the body of my soul! Ah, this is truly a healing bath! I still see the scars, but the wounds, swellings and ulcers have disappeared from the body of my miserable soul. But how was it possible that a visible pool could be created from my tears?

49,5. The pool is surrounded by a quite beautiful landscape. It is a garden of consolation and full of delightful hope. In my mind I also have the feeling that I can count on a complete recovery. - Ah, the landscape is so delightful; I would like to stay here forever! The water in my pool is now very clear, while before it was murky; and the clearer it becomes the greater the salutary effect on me!

49,6. Ah, now I also notice, that something resembling strength of will is starting to stir within me, and behind the strong will I notice something else, a desire to be heard, and it loudly proclaims: I will, I must, - I must, because I will! Who can restrain me in what I will? I am free in my will; I am not allowed to will what I should, but I can will what I myself will have! What is true and good is what I will have, because I myself will have it, and nobody can force me to do so!

49,7. I now recognize the truth which is a divine light from heaven! All our gods are shadows. They are nothing, absolutely nothing. He who believes in them is worse than a real fool since a real fool would never believe in such empty gods. Nowhere do I see the gods, but I see the light of God and I hear His divine word. But I can not see God Himself as He is too holy for me.

49,8. The water of my pool has been transformed into a lake around me! The lake is not deep and the water reaches up only to my loins. It is clear, so tremendously clear; but there are still no fish in it! Yes, there will never be fish in this pool since fish are created by a breath from God’s mouth, and this is truly an almighty breath! I’m only a very weak human soul, whose breath can not create God’s fish.

49,9. There is more to it than that and one must be the Almighty if one wishes to create fish with a breath! A human could never do that since he is not strong enough! Strictly speaking, it would not really be completely impossible for a human being but he would then have to be full of divine will and divine spirit! For the right person this is not impossible; but I am not that person and it is therefore completely impossible for me!

49,10. But the water is pure and at the bottom there is also of a large amount of beautiful grass and it is quite amazing to have so much grass under the water! Look how the grass continues to grow and starts to displace the beautiful water! Yes, yes, hope becomes mightier than knowledge and its accompanying fear!

49,11. Now I see a person on the quite distant shore who is waving to me! Yes, I want to go to him, but I do not know how deep the lake is in the middle! If there are any deep spots I could go under and drown!

49,12. However a voice is heard coming from the water: ‘I am equally deep everywhere! You can walk through me without fear or anxiety. Walk towards the voice which is calling you and which will lead and guide you! This is extraordinary as here even the water and the grass can talk! No, this has never happened before!

49,13. I am now going to the friend on the shore. He must be a friend otherwise he would not have waved to me! Zinka, it is not you, it is someone else! Now I can also see you behind him; but you are not as friendly as he is by some way! Who might that be? But I am however very much ashamed before him as I am naked. My body looks quite well now and I can hardly see any remaining signs of ailments on it. If I only had a shirt! But I am completely naked like someone taking a bath. I must however go to him as I feel compelled to respond to his signal! I am going now - and look how well I am going.
