11. Here Enoch, too, moved closer and said, deeply moved: “O You exceedingly good, holy, most loving Father! It is true, my spirit seeks light within on the obstacles mentioned by You, reflecting on the constantly ruminating monster Nature; but there I can nowhere find an answer.
12. "For although I now see quite clearly that everything exists only through obstacles and therefrom resulting limitations, I can still not see why, for the sake of existing, almost everything should meet in deadly combat.
13. "Why the constant friction, destruction and annihilation?
14. "If thereby something new emerges, it must nevertheless be again destroyed to be followed by something else of its kind.
15. "Behold, there is the empty spot in my heart which is still completely without light.
16. "O Father, light it up with Your grace, love and mercy; Your holy will be done. Amen."
17. And the high Abedam opened His mouth and said to Enoch: ''Yes, you say it and so it is, for everything passes and blows by with the velocity of a gale; and rarely does anything last its full lifespan in full vigor but is only too often swept away by the destructive current, submerged, smashed against the rocks and, finally, swallowed up by the great vortex into the bottomless abyss of destruction.
18. ''You also think: 'There is not a moment which would not constantly consume you and everything around you belonging to you, - not a moment where you are, indeed obviously have to be, a destroyer.
19. "'The most harmless, innocent step of a happy wanderer maybe blots out the life of more than a thousand poor little worms.
20. "How often has my heel shattered a laboriously built dwelling of ants thus stamping a small world into a humiliating grave.
21. "How often have the finest fruits, displayed like a band of light in the sky, hanging from the majestic tree in the light of the sun, been crushed by my teeth. How many of the most glorious little flowers have been crushed by my feet, - and yet they come again. Other ants build another house laboriously, but never ever those for whom my step has prepared an eternal grave! Where, where did they go?
22. "A gentle breeze moves through the leaves of the tree. They move as though lively and gay; yet in the midst of this joy hundreds fall from the branches.
23. "Where to, where to?, I ask. No answer is given me by the fallen; for already a vortex of destruction has swallowed them!'
24. ''You also say: 'It is not the great suffering of things, not the floods hollowing out the rocks, not the great earthquakes by which mountains are reduced to dust that move me, but my own heart undermines me with the all-devastating force hidden everywhere in the nature of things and which calls nothing into existence save that which would again destroy itself or what is around it.'
25. "And harboring such thoughts you reel about, full of fear, and heaven and earth around you, and you call out in this your fear:
26. ''No matter how I look around, I can see nothing anywhere in the nature of things but a self-destructive monster swallowing everything and then chewing the cud!'
27. "It is true, I cannot refute it and say: 'Enoch, you wrong Me with your thoughts,' for it looks so to the eye and the intellect; but behold, it is different with the heart!
28. "What are the things? - 'They are intervals of My great thoughts. It is My own living will that opposes them. Only through this obstacle do they make their visible appearance.
29. "Yet when My love is coupled with My will, it is said: 'Oh do not put limits to the great flight of Your freest thoughts, but allow them to again float freely in the great orbits of Your eternal life in the perfect awareness of their living strength out of You.'
30. "Behold, having mitigated the obstacle of My will, I then give again free rein to My thoughts and you see the things perish; however, they do not cease to exist but only return to the fundamental existence, to the true, free, indestructible existence.
31. "Then, out of many small thoughts I again create a great, living, free one, which must then resemble Me, when it again becomes what it was originally in and out of Me.
32. "Therefore, do no longer worry about the outward transitoriness, but remember: Everything which ceases to exist always enters into another, more perfect, existence, right up to man, and from there again back to Me.
33. “Thus, nothing is lost forever, not even your slightest thoughts.
34. "So comprehend this well all of you, and be always of good cheer in Me. Amen." (HHG vol. 2, chap.124 )
7. "Behold, you are worried by the transitoriness of the created things so that you ask yourself continually and broodingly: 'What will become of the body when once I, spirit and soul, have to shed it?
8. "Why may and can the body not be enhanced, glorified, and through and through remain actively and permanently forever united with the spirit?'
9. “The sudden destruction of the mountain, reminding you even more of the transitoriness of things, has confirmed you in this your old worrying question and you tremble even more when you look at the spot where only two mornings ago Adam had the prophetic thought that before the very mountain where he, as the first man of the earth, was sighing, mourning and weeping, one day also the last man of the earth would be mourning and perishing.
10. "However, since I am surely a better prophet in the great fullness of all My infinite wisdom than the then in vain and quite foolishly mourning Adam, I tell you, firstly, that the erstwhile prophecy of Adam was completely empty, for which reason mainly I now put an end to this fateful mountain and, thus, also to the even more fateful prediction of Adam.
11. "As concerns the questions of your heart, I tell you, secondly, that they are even much emptier than Adam's prediction.
12. "How can you ever even dream of a transitoriness of things?
13. "Do you perchance believe that a thing perishes as soon as it steps out of the utterly deceptive sight of your physical eyes?
14.”O you feeble-minded thinker and seer! Are not all things nothing else but My thoughts fixed by love,
15. "And the spirits released ideas of My love, wherefore they all have a free will and a free, in itself segregated life?
16. "If, then, I release again a fixed thought, say, has it really perished once I have liberated it from the clinging bonds of love so that it again ascends to the great circle of My spirits, who like formed flames of fire fill all of infinity?
17. "Oh, I tell you: Even the first tiny moss plant which sprouted from the first ocean cliff of the earth still exists and lives on in this My great sphere, and the earth's last one will once meet in brotherly spirit this its living little primordial great-grandfather!
18. “Thus also this mountain was only liberated but not destroyed, --
19. "And how much less will this body of your spirit once be!
20. "However, as it is now it cannot continue to exist for long; but it will be gradually returned to the perfected spirit cleansed, if no longer in this form, yet as an eternally indestructible spiritual garment.
21. "Therefore, no one should abuse and sinfully misuse his body; for whoever does this, will once have to walk about also with torn clothes in the spirit.
22. “Thus there is no transitoriness of things, but certainly a liberation of the same.
23. "All this do understand well and set your mind at rest. Amen." (HHG vol. 2, chap. 132)
