Chapter 126 - ABEDAM'S ROUSING CALL TO THE INDIFFERENT ENOS. ABOUT THE PURPOSE OF HUMAN EXISTENCE

126,1. After this speech of thanksgiving and praise the high Abedam summoned Enos and said to him: "Enos, having heard My dear Enoch's words of praise which from the first syllable to the last are perfectly good and true, do tell Me: Have these awakened in you no higher yearning other than that you are silent throughout, like a rocky mountain peak in the still light of the moon?

126,2. “Lo, there is hardly anyone who, like you, would continue unperturbed in his life's sphere, finding nothing in this My visible presence that needed elucidation.

126,3. "I am telling you now: Behold, I am going to establish a dwelling for Myself on earth. It shall be erected from stone and mortar on the height for all Times of times.

126,4. "Whoever will now obtain an office, shall keep it henceforth - here and there; but he who will carelessly walk along where life is blowing by, before him life will blow past and his life's spirits will grow weak.

126,5. "So rouse yourself and seek Out of this indecisive situation An answer to receive Which on this earth you need! Look not upon this word As forcing you to deed; You have to find it in your heart, Proclaim it freely then to Me! If silent you prefer to be, Whiling the time away with sleep, Then do as you think fit, For nothing any longer asking Me!"

126,6. After this somewhat peculiar challenge Enos began to be mightily bewildered, not knowing what to reply.

126,7. He moved closer to Abedam; but the more he tried, the more confused he became, unable to find a subject on which to ask a suitable question.

126,8. As he was standing there, unable to utter a single word, the high Abedam rose again, went over to Enos and asked him:

126,9. "Enos, do you really fail to see the forest for the trees? Shall I maybe put a question into your heart and in the end even into your mouth?

126,10. "Listen, I will do it - and tell you: Ask Me why you are now here, _ and I will give you a fitting answer. Amen."

126,11. Only now did Enos compose himself and ask in all earnest: “O You Most High, what better question should and could I, a miserable man, ever come up with than precisely the one You just indicated to me? So I am asking You in accordance with Your will: Why am I here?

126,12. “O You Most High, You holy Father, if it be Your most holy will You could surely reveal this to me."

126,13. Thereupon Abedam told him: "Yes, truly true, you could never have found a more important question; For just as you have now asked, millions of very blind men will once be asking; but then it will be indescribably more difficult to come up with a suitable answer.

126,14. "For they will all be asking from all directions: 'Why are we here? What shall become of us? Where shall we go, what do, and why? Who and what are we?', and the like.

126,15. "But then they will not receive an answer as you do now. And the answer, which you are now receiving from Me, will soon become lost for a long time.

126,16. "Only towards the end of the wicked rule of the world will I again reveal it to the poverty and insufficiency, to the innocence and minority of harmless children.

126,17. "And this is the answer quite briefly: Man is here for the sake of life, not life for his sake.

126,18. “Thus man was created by Me so that he may absorb life and not vice versa.

126,19. "He was not created in the fullness of life, but merely able to absorb it gradually.

126,20. 'Therefore, no one can know perfectly what life is until he has completely absorbed it.

126,21. "No one can prove life to another with all rhetoric, but whoever has life, with him it proves itself in all its fullness. He will then need no other proof forever, having the fullness of life itself within, which is the alone comprehensible and valid proof of life.

126,22. "If someone does not have life, wherewith is he supposed to comprehend life?

126,23. "Thus, only life can comprehend life, but the dead cannot. The latter can, of course, by virtue of his needfully enlivened soul, gradually pass into life if the soul wants it. But he will not be capable of comprehending life until he has absorbed it in its fullness.

126,24. "Behold, this is why you are here. Absorb life, for the sake of which you are here, and you will comprehend life as Enoch is now comprehending it whose whole being is now filled with great joy because of it.

126,25. "Go now and open your heart so that you may become aware of life; then come back in order to grasp the fullness of life out of Me. Amen."
