TOTUS TUUS, MARIA !

CELESTIAL WHISPERS FROM THE SEAT OF WISDOM

Separate theses from the Treasuries of Divine Truth
as taught by the Queen of Heaven

The Mistress of all souls often teaches Myriam privately through metaphors and special images. Some of the images and the material for contemplation conveyed within the context of these private teachings are now released for the purpose of public teaching, in the form of separate theses intended to help souls develop their spiritual life.

In the present menu item separate theses, which have never been published before but are judged by the Mother of God as being useful for public teaching, will gradually be presented in strict accordance with Her instructions. Thus the Mistress of all souls aims at building an anthology to which She refers as 'Celestial sunbeams from the throne of Wisdom'.

Therefore material will frequently be added to the present menu item. In order that it may be more easy to navigate through the constantly growing content the separate theses will be numbered. This numbering does not in any way indicate any special preference for one thesis over another, nor does it refer to the chronological sequence in which the teachings were given by the Mistress of all souls to Myriam; it merely refers to the order in which the theses are released by Her to be published.

Heaven whispers

1. The redemptive power of Jesus' trials

"Continuously opposing all kinds of events, situations and developments in life renders all trials of life unfruitful. I remind you of the fact the tremendous redemptive power of Jesus' trials lay in His perfect surrender to the needs of God's Plans. Without this surrender the entire Work of Redemption would have remained completely unfruitful. In a similar way I Myself bore the tremendous trials of My life on earth in perfect acceptance and driven by the desire that the seed which God had hidden in these trials would not lose its celestial fertility due to any emotional interference from My Heart which might in any way decrease the vital strength of this seed proceeding from God's heart. Love, acceptance, willingness to serve and humility: These are the prerequisites for a fruitful life. Everything which deviates from these prerequisites renders service to the works of the darkness".

(...)

"The major lesson taught by Jesus' Sufferings and His Death on the Cross is this: that Redemption from the condemning power of sin lies in:

  • the unconditional total acceptance of the crosses and trials of life as acts from Divine Providence with respect to one's own journey through life;
  • unconditional self-denying Love for all fellow creatures and for God's Works and Plans;
  • regarding oneself as quite unimportant, and on the basis of this awareness the unconditional willingness to give one's life for the purpose of rendering service to God alone with a view to obtaining the highest possible well-being of all fellow creatures in time and for all eternity.

Keep in mind that 'giving one's life' does not necessarily mean physical death but rather complete denial of one's own needs, desires and expectations so as to live for the accomplishment of the needs, desires and expectations of all fellow creatures to the extent to which these needs, desires and expectations have got the potential to serve God's Plan and do not jeopardize the Eternal Salvation of fellow souls".


2. The soul as a fruit tree

"The human soul is directed by Laws which are similar to those governing nature in its growth and bloom.

A fruit tree was made for the purpose of yielding fruits. To that end it mainly needs these four elements: a suitable soil, sunshine, rain and oxygen. If the tree has not got the opportunity to take root in a soil which contains the ingredients the tree is in need of, the latter will neither present a healthy growth nor yield healthy fruits.

Behold the human soul. If we compare the soul with a tree we can say it, too, needs a suitable soil, sunshine, rain and oxygen.

The soil in which the soul has to be rooted must be composed of sound pure Love, faith and hope. To the extent the soul's soil actually contains a wealth of these ingredients the soul is truly rooted in God Himself.

The sun that must shine upon the soul is the Light of Divine Life. This Light is transferred to every soul in abundance, yet many souls block themselves off to this Light, often in waves, sometimes completely.

The rain is the grace which has got to irrigate the entire surroundings of the tree of the soul. This grace is granted largely in the shape of trials, crosses, the inconveniences of life, but also through other interventions from Divine Providence. Many souls make their roots impermeable to this water by opposing trials and crosses as well as many or all other signs of Providence. Consequently they gradually wither, their leaves fall off prematurely, and they yield but few fruits, if any at all. Besides, the few fruits they may yield are inferior and do not fully mature.

The oxygen is the breeze through which the Holy spirit breathes life into the soul. Many souls fail to duly absorb this oxygen.

The four elements soil, sunshine, rain and oxygen are mutually complementary. Insofar as they fail to duly complement each other the process of their growth is disrupted and the harvest of fruits will be poorer. (...)"


3. Abstaining from evil

The ability to abstain from evil was bought by Jesus' Sacrifice on the Cross. Every soul who fails to allow her heart to merge undividedly with this Sacrifice (= total self-denying Love + unlimited unconditional service to God's Works + perfect acceptance of all trials), deprives herself of all power to resist evil.

This means that the greatest enemies of the tendency to spontaneously resist acts of darkness are:

  • indifference to God and one's fellow creatures (as opposed to Love);
  • selfishness, jealousy, living for the benefit of one's own views and expectations, egocentrism (as opposed to rendering service);
  • opposing the decrees of Divine Providence regarding one's own life, and feelings of dissatisfaction about 'feeling short-changed or neglected by God' (as opposed to acceptance).

Together these 'enemies' constitute the dispositions characteristic of the antichrist, and generate a constant darkness in the heart.


4. The journey through life

"You can picture every human soul's journey through life as a journey of a thousand miles leading through many curves, up hill and down dale... Each and every step should contribute towards reaching the final destination. Besides the soul has but a specific amount of time to complete the journey. The more often she will sit down idle by the wayside and the more often she will make a step in the wrong direction the more time will be lost to reach the goal. Be aware that 'sitting down idle by the wayside' refers to every moment when the heart is not focused on God.

A soul's heart is focused on God whenever the Law of true Love is actually alive inside, constantly prompting the soul to fill all of her thoughts, feelings, desires and aspirations with Light and warmth and spreading the latter all around, even in those moments when she appears inactive, i.e. in those quiet moments of live during which not one word is spoken and not one action is performed.

The soul also proceeds in the right direction on her path through life while she is not visibly active but within the silent confines of her heart she is nonetheless full of Light and warmth. Every thought, feeling, desire or aspiration which is filled with Light and warmth sends Love through the entire network of creation. On the other hand, thoughts, feelings, desires and aspirations which are filled with dissatisfaction, jealousy, indifference, resentment or the inclination to harm fellow creatures will send darkness through the entire network of creation.

In God's eyes a crime is definitely not always a perceptible action through which a human being causes harm, to Him 'crime' is everything which proceeds from a human soul and which is a carrier of darkness and can harm the network of creation or certain elements thereof, no matter how big or how small these elements may be. This means that, in God's eyes, a soul can commit serious crimes without performing even the slightest action, merely through thoughts, feelings, desires or aspirations which are laden with serious darkness.

Examples of actions and dispositions perceived by God as serious crimes, yet imperceptible to man, are malediction, casting evil spells, vengefulness, plans to retaliate, hatred, constant inclination to enviousness or jealousy, as well as any thought, feeling or desire which produces effects filled with darkness. In God's eyes another form of serious crime is every persistent inner disposition through which a human soul turns herself into a bridge serving the darkness, i.e. through which a soul allows herself to be used frequently or constantly as a tool for the accomplishment of works and plans conceived by the darkness. Such dispositions can cause tremendous damage and/or chaos within the network of creation or in individual nodes (creatures) and channels (relationships and contacts among creatures) within this network.

This is why a great many crimes remain hidden to human eyes and why the judgment passed by God on the lives of a great many souls looks quite different from that which these souls themselves and/or their fellow souls have ever presumed or have ever been able to presume".

(...)

"There are souls who sit down by the side of their path through life so frequently and/or who make so many steps in the wrong direction that in the hour in which judgment is passed on their life God will establish the fact they have barely covered a few of their thousand miles. He considers this to be an overt profession of their lack of desire to reach Him. A soul who sincerely desires to spend her Eternal Life with God will go to any lengths to make good progress on her path through life, by:

  • filling all her actions, words, thoughts, feelings, desires and aspirations with as much Light and warmth as possible, i.e. with self-denying Love and acts of sincere service to God and to her fellow creatures;
  • sitting down idle by the wayside as seldom as possible, i.e. by avoiding all and any dispositions of indifference to God's desires;
  • not ever making steps in the wrong direction by committing sins or hanging on to bad habits and vices.

Yes, the great lesson contained in the present teaching is once again this:

Human soul, spend every moment of your life, under all circumstances and in every detail, practicing self-denying Love, rendering unselfish service to God's Works and Plans and to all your fellow creatures, and in a disposition of radical aversion to all darkness in your actions, words, thoughts, feelings, desires and aspirations. See to it that the Spirit of God may at all times, day and night, and at any point on your journey through life, find you harbouring an inner disposition filled with Light and warmth".


5. About the human soul's vital capital

"In the hour of her conception every human soul is granted by God a vital capital. This capital consists of all abilities, gifts, graces, talents, and the germ of sanctity. To the extent to which the soul makes use of this capital for the achievement of the only purpose for which she was created – rendering service to the accomplishment of God's Plan of Salvation for the benefit of all creation – it will yield interests, which I can even multiply so as to make a considerable amount that can be paid into the Divine Treasuries, from which the Master of all life prepares His graces. The soul's conscience is conceived such as to enable the soul to keep focused on fulfilling this purpose. However, as soon as the human mind starts using the free will in such a way that the soul fails to render service to God's Plan of Salvation but rather serves the accomplishment of her own views and expectations she is already committing a first murder: the killing of her own conscience, the holy alarm and navigation system which is meant to keep the soul closely connected to God.

If the soul puts her conscience out of operation she is actually cutting herself off from God, from His intentions and all of His Works, including the entire network of creation. Soon the soul will then deteriorate into an exanimated human being sinking into a distressing shallowness, for all guidance by the Holy Spirit is disregarded, and all of the soul's behaviour, all her thoughts, feelings and desires are dictated by the basic law built on the image the soul wants to get across of herself.

The human being who acts this way starts to indulge in self-elevating conceitedness and self-glorification and thereby allows the dispositions of Lucifer to take root in her soil, which was once clothed by God in holiness. In so doing this human being pledges his vital capital to Satan. Consequently this capital no longer yields interests, on the contrary, in God's accounts it is now mortgaged. Consider the difference:

In the hour in which judgment is passed on the soul's life a soul who has led a life of exclusive service to God, both directly and through service to Me by virtue of the sacred covenant of consecration to Me, will give her vital capital back to God, increased by interests which may have run fairly high, especially if she has surrendered her vital capital to My power and put it at my undivided disposal by practicing the disposition of slavery towards My Love for the purpose of accomplishing My Works, which are geared to the establishment of God's Kingdom on earth in the hour in which My foot will have crushed all works of darkness. The total surrender of the soul's will to Me opens up her vital capital to receiving the gold treasure of My absolutely perfect Love.

A soul on the other hand, who has given her vital capital to Satan by elevating herself and thus turning into a bridge for the works of the darkness starts generating negative interests: Her vital capital is no longer a source of interests which are used for the preparation of Divine graces, but a source of debts, which are to be settled in purgatory or which, if they run too high, can lead to the soul's eternal damnation. Eternal damnation is the price a soul will have to pay if she persists in greatly disregarding the gifts of self-denying Love bestowed upon her".


6. Salvation as the fruit of active dedication

As soon as a soul realizes how little she is within the framework of the entire network of creation there is a possibility she gets to think of herself as being too futile for God to even deign to look at her. However, this thought is unjustified, as nothing pleases Him more than washing and clothing the soul time and time again so she may become cleaner and cleaner and prettier and prettier. The soul who believes this, will learn the art of living with herself. This is indeed an art, for many souls never learn how to do it. Does this mean the soul need not regret her imperfections? By no means, for it is vital that you should perfect yourself in practicing true Love so as not to allow God's wanting to wash and clothe you daily to let you succumb to any inclination not to make personal efforts to remain as pure as possible. Not that which God wants to do for you will bring you Eternal Salvation, it is the extent to which you actively collaborate with Him on this that will yield you Salvation.

God is waiting for your active collaboration. How is it that many souls do not take sides with the doctrine taught by the Mistress of all souls? This is definitely not due to the doctrine as such. The doctrine taught by the Mistress of all souls requires the soul to make a personal, persistent, active dedication towards her own sanctification. Not every soul who calls herself a Christian is willing to make active contributions. A great many Christians expect a Redemption which is simply being dropped into their laps by Jesus. If souls get the promise they will be delivered from their trials and crosses by Jesus, then who is going to be willing to keep carrying these trials and crosses whole-heartedly? The answer is simple: Those who truly love God and His Works. Who are these souls? The answer is equally simple: the true Christians, those who are not nominally Christians but are Christians in their concrete daily actions, their ways and lines of thinking, feeling and aspiring. Following Christ is not waiting for Christ to carry the Cross Himself again, it is saying to Christ: "Whatever it may cost me, I definitely want to join You in carrying the crosses of the world, for I find no joy in knowing my best Friend is suffering all alone so that I may be delivered from all sufferings even while I am still living on earth".

Waiting passively for Jesus to come and take one's own crosses away, has got nothing to do with being a Christian, and a soul who promotes such thinking and such a way of approaching life also in fellow people is not doing God's Works. Sitting on the fence where accomplishing God's Works is concerned goes against God's Law according to which the souls are to collaborate with Him actively, spontaneously and voluntarily. God does not impose His blessings and benefactions, the soul must merge her free will with God's Will, only then will she be able to truly help make His gifts fruitful. In other words: God gives seeds, it is up to the soul to enable these seeds to bloom into flowers through an appropriate use of her free will. A soul who expects God's interventions to come in the shape of blooming flowers will gather no merits. God prefers to give His graces in the shape of seeds, and this He does out of perfect Love: The merits of life on earth are determined by the way the soul deals with the seeds of grace with a view to having them bloom into flowers which bear witness towards God of the soul's sincere active desire to do God's Works.


7. About conscience

God provided for every soul to possess a powerful alarm system: conscience, which warns about every intruder and every inspiration which is not in accordance with that which God expects of every soul. The power supply to this alarm system is pure Love, the seed of which God provided for every soul. It is the soul's own free will which determines whether she is keeping her alarm system connected with this power source or not.

The Queen of Heaven once referred to conscience as 'the soul's immune system': In a physical body the immune system is activated as soon as a threatening substance (e.g. a poison) or a threatening organism (e.g. a bacteria, a virus, a mould, a parasite etc.) displays a hazardous activity or any deviation from normal physical processes makes itself felt (e.g. a cancerous or an inflammatory process). This is how the immune system works because Divine Intelligence has provided for it to be that way as a protection against everything which may pose a threat to a normal functioning of the body.

The ultimate purpose of the immune system is to assist in correcting or terminating the 'abnormal' situation or threat so as to restore the harmony between the body and the Divine Laws which try to govern the physical functions in such a way as to keep the body healthy. In a similar way the soul's conscience will react as soon as the soul's health is threatened by all sorts of aberrations in spiritual life. In concrete terms this is the case in every situation in which the soul is in danger of reacting in a way which is not in accordance with the law of true Love. This 'reacting' can take the form of an action, a spoken word, a thought, a feeling, a desire of an aspiration which may jeopardize the soul's sanctity.

The soul's conscience is therefore her inner signpost to Eternal Salvation. The soul's conscience is where God has deposited His Code of Law, which is why our conscience is able to function as an alarm system which warns about every violation against God's Law. A healthy conscience is constantly busy 'scanning' the soul's inner dispositions, and will broadcast warning signals as soon as these dispositions show traces of impurity (darkness).

How does a conscience lose its health? In March 2015 the Mistress of all souls referred to selfishness as the major enemy of our conscience, saying: "Selfishness clouds the soul's conscience. The soul who approaches everything from a constant attempt to satisfy her own needs and complete her own ways will only be able to do so to the extent to which she has first made her conscience invisible to herself". Basically one might say a soul is not likely to sin if she has not – even if only briefly – deactivated her conscience. Many souls make this a rather chronical situation in that they stop listening to their conscience and thus create a sort of artificial world in which they no longer see or hear any warnings. This situation could be compared with a situation in which an employee in a nuclear power plant would disconnect the alarm system in the event of an imminent catastrophe, subsequently strolls about all across the plant freely and without a care in the world without taking any measure nor precaution, harbouring a false sense of security because he sees no red warning lights nor hears any sirens, yet in the meantime exposes himself to major radiation.

The soul does pay a price for disconnecting her conscience: She will fall prey to an inner struggle, for her conscience will keep sending warnings, as it is basically a system which is connected directly with the Heart of God. God will not even for a single moment refrain from speaking in the soul in the language of Love, which is conceived to be the ignition mechanism activating the soul's conscience whenever the latter is, for whatever reason, failing to function the way God intended it to do. He does so because He wants to keep motivating every soul to use her conscience in such a way that her entire behaviour and all her inner dispositions may preserve a perfect harmony with the Law of true Love. The extent to which the soul lives in accordance with this Law determines her eternal destination. As long as the soul will not flawlessly act upon the prompts she receives from her conscience there is no way for her to keep her journey through life oriented towards the gates of Heaven.


8. The seed of true Peace

For many souls life on earth is tantamount to an uninterrupted challenge to find happiness. Happiness can lie in a short-lived joy about an event with an unexpected positive outcome, or in a windfall in whatever field of life. True happiness, however, can be found on earth only in the disposition of heart which enables the soul to put the worries and shortcomings inherent to the material aspects of life on earth in perspective to such an extent as to no longer get overwhelmed by them. This disposition of heart is referred to as true Peace and is exactly what Jesus meant when He said "My Peace I give to you". The Peace of Christ is the disposition in which the soul no longer allows herself to be defeated by the adverse winds of life and manages to maintain the Light of true hope and brightfulness in spite of any darkness.

The soul will find Peace within herself to the extent to which she learns how to design her heart to be a flourishing garden of unconditional Love. The perfect example of a truly paradisical garden was Mary's Heart. This is exactly why God set Mary as the great example for living an optimally fruitful life at the service of His Plan of Salvation based on the disposition of a heart experiencing true Peace. A heart in true Peace is a flourishing paradise, or a water which cannot get tempestuous even by the strongest gales, on account of the fact the water masses have found a solid and imperturbable inner balance.

True happiness and true Peace are not dependent on specific events, actions, experiences or places one visits, but on an atmosphere of contentment in the heart. Peace attracts peace, meaning that the more deeply a feeling of quiet peace takes root in your heart the more you are going to find this new peace in this, in that, in everything, similar to a single flower spreading its seed all around and thus providing for the makings of an entire field full of flowers. True Peace actually takes root in the heart when the soul is able to come to the conclusion that "all is good, as God has provided it to be this way for me because in some way or another it is necessary for my eternal Salvation...". In this disposition the heart no longer allows the worries and darkness surrounding her to become the master of her feelings, yet amply drinks the water of Divine Life which fills the soul ever more thoroughly with the awareness the Light is to gain an absolutely certain victory and the darkness is nothing more than a transitory phase which may yield many graces to the extent the soul will counteract it with the Light and the warmth of a sincere Love, a sincere faith and a sincere hope blossoming inside spontaneously and which she never again allows to wither because of any dark expectation.

Being aware of the presence of the Mother of God inside one's heart is the most powerful seed of true Peace I know of. Whoever cherishes and waters this seed will gradually get a blooming garden that makes God's marvels visible. God's greatest Work of Wonder (Mary) is endowed with an unparalleled ability to spread Her seeds all around and to make them blossom in power and glory.


9. The deep meaning of the relationship between Jesus and Mary

There is some difference of opinions, even to the point of discord, among Christians as to every profound veneration of Mary. Is this an aberration, having regard to the fact that Christianity is centered around Christ? The Queen of Heaven Herself wants to advance an unambiguous thesis in this respect:

Jesus is God, Mary is a created soul. Nevertheless the whole system of God's Plan of Salvation requires some clarification as to the relationship between Jesus and Mary. On account of a Divine Mystery there exists between Jesus and Mary a perfect mystical union of Hearts. The relationship between Jesus and Mary is similar to mixing milk and water: If you mix both of these in one container there is no way for you to separate them, unless through some artificial means, i.e. through human intervention. In the spiritual sense Jesus and Mary, too, can be separated only through an artificial procedure (human thinking). Both are merged in their will, and are therefore merged in their Works and in the effects of these Works, and they are dedicated to the proclamation and advancement of exactly the same theses, details included, because They derive Their Wisdom from the very same Source: God's Heart, which is the Source of the only Truth and of perfect Wisdom. It is downright impossible to fall short of obedience and of bringing tribute to Jesus by obeying and bringing tribute to Mary, for Jesus' words and Mary's words both proceed from the one and only Will of God.

Therefore there could never be any contradiction between Mary and Jesus, unless in the event of some human falsification or deception, or of a perfectly erroneous interpretation on the part of a human mind. This is why it is to be considered an inspiration by Satan if one should believe the Science of Divine Life would not find its origin with God and, in so believing, would go on the assumption that God would put all emphasis on Jesus Christ (Son of God) and never on Mary (a created soul). This is a fallacy:

The Mistress of all souls is neither introducing any novel religion nor any religion deviating from Christian doctrine, She is purely and simply instilling in-depth insights into Christian theses and applications thereof in situations souls are able to recognize in their own environment and experiences, all of this merely serving the purpose of helping to accomplish God's Plan of Salvation and enabling souls to actively participate in this accomplishment, thereby bringing the Christ's Works of Redemption to full fruition in their own spiritual life. Redemption is not a gift one receives passively, it is a grace which is to be made fruitful through an active dedication of one's own free will.

This is exactly where we can find the very depth of the relationship God brought about between Jesus and Mary: Mary's mission lies in moulding and assisting souls in such a way as to better enable them to partake actively and spontaneously in opening up their own Redemption. Mary was fully equipped by God Himself to accomplish this mission in that He created Her as His absolutely perfect Work of Wonder. This is why She is referred to as being full of grace. She Herself fully accomplished this unique privilege throughout Her life on earth by actually practising Her fullness of grace in every single detail of Her life and of Her inner dispositions so thoroughly through Her immaculate sanctity, which was sustained by Her never committing even the slightest sin. It is exactly because She is not Divine by nature (like Jesus) yet human by nature and elevated up to the very highest summit of sanctity, that She is pre-eminently suited as a Model and Mirror of Divine Life.

Quite a few years ago already the Mistress of all souls expressed Her relationship with Jesus in two images: Firstly She is the Carrier of the beams from the Sun that is Jesus Christ, meaning that She is not Divine Light but the greatest Channel guiding this Light into the souls. Secondly She is like a stained glass window in a church building: Through Her the radiant Divine Light is refracted into many colors, symbolizing the fact that She divides the fullness of the sanctity of God's Works into all virtues, which She will attempt to bring to bloom in the willing soul, and She will make it easier for the soul to absorb this Light. The radiant Light from God may, in a manner of speaking, dazzle and/or singe the soul. If the Light is guided through God's potent filter (Mary) its abundance is moderated and is guided into the soul in more tailored doses (a bit dimmed) and in a more tailored form (in many different colors), in order for the soul to be able to bloom carefully and gradually.

This way there can be no such thing as competition between Jesus and Mary, on the contrary: Divine Life is the state of absolutely perfect bloom in the soul's life and represents the fullness of the Christ. Mary is the Filter provided for by God to help every willing soul take in the fullness of God's Works in such a way as to enable the soul to 'digest' them better, to help with the processing of these Works inside the soul, and to help bring them to bloom, all of this according to the personal dispositions and experiences and the specific developments inside the soul. Jesus therefore embodies absolute Divine perfection, Mary has gotten to partake in this very perfection to the highest extent possible for a created soul, and the essence of Her mission consists therein that, on the basis of Her fullness of grace and Her mystical unity of Hearts with Christ, combined with Her human nature, She was called upon to provide an unparalleled assistance to human souls as to making God's Works flourish in them.

This is why the highest possible tribute to Mary is an absolute necessity. Every act of worship towards God is incomplete as long as His most sublime Work of Wonder (Mary) is not receiving the highest tribute. This tribute only exists in the true sense of the word to the extent to which a soul truly follows Mary, not only by words but in all aspects of her behaviour and in all her deepest inner dispositions.


10. The desert in the soul

Every soul is like a garden containing the seeds of true Love. God entrusts the soil of every such garden with these seeds because true Love is the essence of all Life. In order to be able to accomplish her mission in life as a junction in the network of creation the human soul must constantly make true Love, which God keeps sending through the entire network, bloom in her own spiritual garden and in the meantime keep forwarding it towards all living beings she encounters. The seeds of true Love are to flourish into flowers inside the soul, these flowers symbolizing the degree of her sanctity. All seeds left unripe (i.e.: situations and encounters during which the soul has failed to allow true Love to function as the main driving force of her behaviour and her inner dispositions) are to be brought to bloom in purgatory, for the soul will only be able to enter into Heaven to the extent to which she has turned into a paradise of flowers.

A soul that allows the seeds of true Love to decay by any lack of whole-hearted willingness to practice self-denying, unconditional Love in all details of her life on earth will not even in purgatory be able to bloom: She has allowed herself to turn into a desert while still living on earth. This soul is condemning herself for all eternity, for her life on earth ends without her having preserved any potential to bloom.

How does a soul turn into a desert? The Mistress of all souls once availed Herself of the following image: If the soil of a soul fails to absorb the water of grace and at the same time opens up unrestrainedly to the burning rays of the blazing sun of temptation, it gets increasingly dry. Everything God entrusted to this soil in the field of talents, gifts and capacities, including the germ of sanctity, loses its potential to germinate, and the soil will become completely unfruitful. All life will leave the soil, and it will attract nothing but the serpents of sin and the scorpions of vice, all laden with deadly poison. The Heavenly Queen concluded this image by the significant words: "Do understand this correctly, this image expresses the soul's suicide". In this reflexion, too, She stresses the central role played by true Love in all life, including the inner bloom of spiritual life.

The destination of every human soul's journey through life lies in the Heart of God, which is both the Source and the Destination of all life and of true Love. Every journey through life which is not in all of its elements, components and goals oriented towards this Destination will remain unaccomplished, i.e. unfulfilled within the limits of the lifetime allotted by God to the soul. A human soul is only compatible with Eternal Life in the Paradise of God's Kingdom of the Heavens to the extent to which she is herself a bearer of a paradise of ripened seeds of true Love. Every instance of disregarding, denying or disrupting true Love turns the soul into a desert, a place from which true Life, Divine Life, is dispelled.


11. The tree and its fruits

Jesus said in the Gospel that a good tree will not yield bad fruits and a bad tree will not yield good fruits, and that the tree is known by its fruits. The Heavenly Mistress once elaborated on this as follows.

In God's creation all elements as well as all interaction among these elements are by nature governed by Divine Intelligence. Hence as long as an element of creation is living in perfect harmony with Divine Law it is likely to act and yield exactly in accordance with God's expectations and with the goals He pursued with it. This is why, as long as God's Law gets the opportunity to produce its effects unrestrainedly, a healthy tree will produce only good fruits. Matters are different, however, if we are dealing with the 'trees' and 'fruits' that are human souls:

God gave the human soul a free will. It is her own free choice whether she lives, acts, thinks, feels and wishes in accordance with His expectations or not. We might consider God as being a tree, and all human souls as being fruits which must remain connected with the nourishment they can derive from this tree's stem so as to be able to ripen. The sap running through the Divine tree cannot but yield perfect nourishment. Nevertheless some fruits (i.e. human souls) can, on account of their faculty of making free choices, tear themselves loose from the Divine tree and thus fall off the tree, or wither, or get sick in any number of ways. However, this does not at all mean the Divine tree would not be a good tree. Man should under no circumstances condemn God on account of the fact countless human souls have turned rotten by their own doing.

Similarly the Queen of Heaven warns about 'sentencing' souls or their works on account of the fact bad fruits, too, can be associated with them: It is possible for a human soul to nourish many others with a sap filled with sanctity, Light and Love and nevertheless to find in her closest surroundings, even in her alleged 'following', fruits that are rotten. In that case the tree is good, yet some fruits have made themselves sick through any wrong use of their free will.

Is the Gospel word about the tree and its fruits incorrect then? By no means. However, the Mother of God points to the fact this word should be considered more in-depth. A soul can perform Heavenly works and yet yield bad fruits due to the fact some souls in her surroundings do not make good use of their free will. Actually this soul is not producing bad fruits herself, it is the fruits that make themselves turn bad. These 'bad fruits' are there alright, but what man does not see is the tremendous struggle between the Light and the darkness, which is bound to break loose wherever a human soul is performing Heavenly Works: In her surroundings the evil one will inevitably rise in an attempt to break, harm and poison these Heavenly Works and to discredit the source from which they are proceeding. Moreover a human soul that is performing Heavenly Works will produce much Light which nobody sees and which will spread through the network of God's creation inconspicuously. Her good fruits will therefore largely remain invisible, and this will be all the more so as the soul is doing these good works and living from dispositions of a heart filled with Light and Love, and does not display her true nature and works nor prides herself of them for everybody to see and hear.

As to the tree that is called 'human soul' nobody but God Himself is able to judge the true nature of the tree and its fruits. The Mistress of all souls points out that the bad fruits which may be associated with the tree of a soul that yields only Light and Love, have actually never really been connected with this tree: They have merely given the impression they belonged to this tree, and often did so with an intention of causing this tree harm. This is why in the world of human souls the presence of a lot of bad fruits often rather indicates the presence of a tree that is playing an important role for the fulfilment of God's Works and Plans.


12. How come all good things meet with such fierce opposition?

The Mistress of all souls once said: "Satan spares no effort to destroy a blooming flower or at least to thwart its bloom. Every soul that dedicates herself to fighting persistently in favour of the Light and against the darkness will harvest storm after storm. The darkness will leave no stone unturned to discourage such a soul, to undermine her faith and confidence, and to make her doubt whether she has really taken sides with the right master or mistress. Harvesting opposition does by no means always prove the soul is doing the wrong thing. On the contrary, opposition quite often reveals that Satan feels his plans are being jeopardized. As soon as he experiences this to be happening or he even so much as merely expects or fears that the accomplishment of his plans is endangered, he will start looking with determination for souls who prove willing to do his works for him. It is such souls who do not shirk from branding Heavenly teachings and Works as heretical without dwelling upon their own motives for ding so or without even caring about motives at all. The darkness is allergic to the Light, for the Light is Light because it is laden with Divine Love, and Divine Love is the essence of all Life and therefore the archenemy of the darkness, which embodies eternal death. This is why a soul who tries to spread Love will often harvest a lot more hostility than Love in return".

In the soul who makes herself poor in worldly impressions and interests Mary will triumph to the fullest, and She will guide this soul towards the victory over herself. The Queen of Heaven Herself is predestined to gain the final victory over all darkness. She wants to see every soul who is willing to really live as Her servant to be poor in worldly interests, in order that She may be able to let this soul partake in Her victory. Mary was the major example of the human soul who defeats herself, i.e. who gains the victory over any worldly influence inside herself so as to live in perfect accordance with God's expectations in her entire behaviour, in all of her thoughts, feelings and aspirations. Through this disposition, in which She persevered for the entire duration of Her life, She kept the darkness totally in Her power: In no respect and at not one single point of time did Satan ever manage to deploy Her for the accomplishment of his plans and works, for She did not want to turn away from God's paths. This is also why She never allowed worldly influences and interests to give direction to Her life and Her inner dispositions. She controlled these influences totally by not wanting to allow influences besides those which proceeded from God Himself.

This is what God expects of every soul. Therefore the perfect following of Mary is by no means a heresy, quite on the contrary: It is a perfect path towards the full bloom of the soul in the image of God. Not one single created soul was ever more deeply united with the Heart of the Christ than Maria.

There are forces which brand the theses distributed by the Maria Domina Animarum Work as heretic, especially the ones about the unique sublimity of Mary, on account of the fact these theses call upon the souls to practice a perfect following of Mary. Such forces are not inspired by God, they are inspired by Satan himself, who considers the perfect following of Mary to be a major menace. The soul who dedicates her entire life to trying to achieve a perfect following of Mary is actually aspiring for a complete victory over all darkness she may carry inside herself and/or which threatens her inner bloom. The soul who manages to defeat her own darkness makes an essential contribution to the final victory of God's Light over the darkness. Let us reflect upon the most expressive image depicting the Holy Virgin with the serpent underneath Her foot: She has got the darkness totally in Her power for all times, and if She is enabled to rule the inner dispositions of a soul the latter will also be able to defeat the darkness herself.

The Queen of Heaven once pointed out that Satan fears every glorification and following of Her sublimity possibly even more than He fears every tribute to God's glory, due to the fact he regards Mary as the living proof for the fact a created human soul is indeed able to be free, and remain free, of darkness, and that he therefore goes to the utmost to prevent human souls from really assimilating this truth and living accordingly. Here lies the indirect power of the Mistress of all souls: the power She is able to wield over Satan through the following She harvests in loyal souls who are consecrated to Her totally.

Let us behold the unparalleled significance of the Science of Divine Life, the whole of the teachings given by Mary in Her capacity as Mistress of all souls: It consists of a seamless and consistent system of which all elements are interconnected among each other and in which no contradictions and no false conclusions can be discovered. The souls who are sufficiently pure at heart will understand this sooner or later, the other ones are prevented by the evil one from seeing or understanding it and some will keep finding pseudo arguments which, as they see it, seemingly justify their branding these unique theses as heretic. The evil one regards the Science of Divine Life as very dangerous, for he has understood all too well that a widely spread belief in the theses inspired by the Mistress of all souls would mean the end of his reign. This is exactly what the Mistress of all souls once predicted: "As soon as truly large numbers of souls were to whole-heartedly accept and unconditionally live by the theses contained in the Science of Divine Life Satan's reign on earth would collapse once and for all". The souls who allow themselves to be used by him to make Heavenly Works seem untrustworthy and to make fellow people's faith and trust sway are actually helping to preserve the power of the darkness and to postpone the final victory of the Light and Love, and preventing the happiness of a great many fellow people – as well as their own happiness! – from blooming.


13. About guidance from Heaven

The soul who surrenders totally to Mary can receive the latter's thorough guidance in her heart. One should not picture guidance by the Holy Virgin as an act through which Mary would dictate the way the soul has to go or the decisions the soul has to make, thus making the soul follow Her submissively and without a will of her own. Guidance from Heaven is the process through which God fathoms a human heart in search of the soul's willingness to collaborate voluntarily and whole-heartedly towards the accomplishment of His Works and Plans, and reacts to every sign of openness by granting targeted inspirations which bear the potential to enable the soul, to the extent of her acting, thinking, feeling and aspiring in accordance with these inspirations, to bring her life completely in line with God's expectations and wishes, so that she truly lives her life with God. For a soul who has consecrated herself totally to the Holy Virgin and who actually practices this consecration in all details of her life the guidance from Heaven will mainly consist of inspirations through which Mary will try to enhance the fruitfulness of the consecrated soul's life.

The soul who tries to practice her consecration and service to the Queen of Heaven in every detail of her daily life opens up her heart to such a degree that Mary is enabled to show her the ways that are the most fruitful for her spiritual bloom, provided the soul collaborates actively in the process. The ways shown by the Holy Virgin do not display noticeably blooming flowers but celestial seeds that are still hidden in the soil. The soul has to make the guidance from Heaven fruitful herself, by proceeding as follows:

  1. It is up to her whether she will travel on the ways shown to her, or not. This choice expresses the free will, which is never influenced by the Mother of God (if She should do so, She would rob the soul of any possible merits). As the 'right' ways do not display any visible floral splendour the soul is not influenced in her choice in favour of these ways instead of any others. She makes this choice – thereby testifying of her docility – not based on a seeming attractiveness (the power of seduction!) of the way in her eyes, but because of the feeling deep down that this choice holds the greatest promise for her spiritual salvation.
  2. She has to fertilize and water the seeds in the soil of any way she has chosen, by bearing all trials she encounters in a way which is fruitful for God's Works, i.e. in full acceptance, surrender and self-denying Love and with her heart set undividedly on making her contributions to the completion of her life-long mission at the service of God's Works and Plans.

Guidance from Heaven will never relieve the soul of her mission to decide, at every junction on her path through life, on the direction in which she is going to continue her journey. At every point of time, in all situations and under any circumstances God wants to be able to determine in an unambiguous way to what extent the soul is voluntarily, spontaneously, whole-heartedly, unconditionally and unselfishly tuning in to His heart and is making the nearly uninterrupted choices on her path through life in compliance with her Creator's expectations and wishes. It is God's desire that every human soul might accumulate the merits which, by virtue of the Law of Divine Justice, would justify her entering the Kingdom of Eternal Bliss. Whenever God (or Mary by Divine proxy) would not merely inspire the soul innerly to opt for certain ways but would actually push the soul towards her choosing specific ways the soul would lose an opportunity to prove to her Creator that she wants to merge her will with His Will spontaneously, without being compelled to do so. She would then be deprived of an opportunity to gain merit. Celestial guidance in the form of gentle inspirations which respect the soul's free choices is therefore the highest form of God's Love towards His creature: In so doing He grants the creature chances to be able to live forever in the infinite delights of Eternal Love.


14. About true and false consecration to the Mother of God

Through the years the Queen of Heaven has been teaching many things concerning total consecration to Her and the extent to which the soul herself determines the concrete value her consecration to the Mother of God is going to develop within the framework of God's Works. A wonderful image to illustrate this was once given by the Queen of Heaven Herself:

"To a soul who surrenders to Me totally, undividedly and unconditionally I truly am the Queen and Mistress of her entire being and her entire life. Through her attitude of leading a life of true following of Me in all elements of her behaviour and of her inner dispositions her being and her life turn into a palace she builds for her Queen and Mistress.

To this soul I am in the actual sense of the word the Queen and Mistress: In her life I am the factual Ruler, and in the eyes of God the Daughter of His predilection has been presented by this soul a palace befitting the dignity He Himself provided for Her even before the Incarnation of His Divine Son, the dignity as a Golden Tabernacle, a living palace for Divinity Itself.

n the other hand, a soul who seemingly, i.e. only in words, consecrates herself to Me yet does not really practice this consecration in all details of her life is building Me a ramshackle house which she covers with a front made of the would-be gold of her own fantasies and imagination.

To this soul I am not really the Mistress in her life, yet a Queen in name only, a sign of hope of whom she expects a token of power to be set in the hour when judgment will be passed on her life, so as to convince God that she has built Me a palace.

However, do see the vast difference: The soul who truly accepts Me and treats Me as her Queen and Mistress builds Me a palace with the bricks of her own efforts to sanctify herself and the cement of her free will, which she puts at My service undividedly under all circumstances of her life. At the centre of this palace I will be sitting on a golden throne, from which I will proclaim the Law of God Himself using the ink of the true unselfish Love practiced by the soul. This Law will be, and remain, the only guiding thread for the soul's life.

On the other hand, the soul who fails to copy My dispositions lacks the bricks of sanctification and the cement of a free will which has sincerely opted in favour of God's Works. In this soul I am not allowed to live and reign every moment of the day, for she fails to create within herself the shrine God considers to be compatible with the immaculate nature of His chosen Daughter. Do understand this correctly, I am certainly able to reign every soul even from a ruin, yet for this gracious power to be deployed God requests the soul to provide an unambiguous sign of a deliberate and persistent choice in favour of Divine Life and for a life-long impeccable surrender to Me, who was given to the souls as the Golden gate to the Heart of Christ.

The soul who is willing to be a palace for Me is actually going to turn into a palace which will stand for all eternity. In the hour when judgment will be passed on this soul's life God will find in her His Royal Daughter, sitting on the throne at the centre of a palace made of merits".


15. Man's free will as oil

God is omnipotent. In spite of this He prefers to complete His Works and Plans through human souls. The reason lies in the fact God wants to be convinced that the things He wishes to accomplish in His creation are desired by man as well.

The Mistress of all souls keeps emphasizing the fact the way a soul makes use of her free will is decisive for the extent to which this soul will blossom and will be fruitful as a tool for the accomplishment of God's Works and Plans. Through the way in which a human soul uses her free will she shows to God to what extent her wishes are actually consistent with His own wishes. Ultimately the perfect merger of a soul's free will with God's Will is the factor determining how close the soul comes to the ideal of man being the image of God.

All Works and Plans of God are completely geared to making His perfect Love bloom in creation. This is why a human soul can only be fruitful as a tool fo the accomplishment of God's Works and Plans to the extent she is a channel that is able to help guarantee a flawless flow of true Love through creation. This is the actual mission of every human soul in life, a mission which she is able to fulfil only to the extent she really wants to do so. In this context the Mistress of all souls once said:

"In the human soul the fire of true Love must burn. The oil made to keep this fire burning is the orientation of the free will towards the accomplishment of God's Plans and Works. As soon as the supply of this oil towards the flame is cut off, the fire will become smaller and may at some point of time extinguish due to lack of fuel. Many souls do not spread the light and heat of the fire of true Love because their free will is not focused on God's goals but on their own. In these souls the fire of true Love is not nourished from their own free will.

The soul can rekindle the fire any time, by diverting her free will persistently and with determination away from herself and focusing it on God. Every moment during which the fire of self-denying Love does not burn or burns only minimally it bears testimony to God for the fact the soul is not moved by a sufficiently great desire to keep her heart merged with the Heart of her God.

Indeed the fire in a human soul is based totally on a disposition of self-denial. This is why the latter disposition is a bearer of the light and heat which enable her to make the Presence of her Maker felt by the fellow creatures which she encounters. As a matter of fact self-denial is nothing other than the disposition from which the soul keeps putting her own will at the service of the well-being of all her fellow creatures as well as of the completion of the Works and Plans of God Himself".


16. About persecution in our days

Quite a few inaccurate ideas are circulating among the Christians as to certain notions. One example is the notion of 'persecution', about which the Mistress of all souls once spoke the following words, which She now allows to be published by way of a brief teaching:

"Christian thinking embodies God's only full Truth. This makes every true Christian a predilected target for Satan for the accomplishment of his works. Being a target for the works of Satan is what we refer to as persecution.

Many modern Christians think of 'persecution' very generally as being actions like those which were once executed in an organized and politically regulated form by organizations such as – to name but a few of the most generally known ones – the Gestapo in Nazi Germany, the KGB in the former Soviet Union and the Stasi in the former German Democratic Republic. In truth I tell you that in this day and age Satan accomplishes his works of darkness for the persecution of heartfelt Christians in very subtle ways, not in the first place through politically regulated organizations but on a large scale through individuals, often from unexpected angles and most secretly, i.e. through manipulations and dark thoughts, feelings and desires the evil one manages to arouse in individuals who, preferably, are themselves so-called Christians, consider themselves to be Christians or create the impression they are Christians, and who have made themselves receptive to his inspirations by harbouring feelings of dissatisfaction, jealousy and resentment on account of the fact that certain expectations they harboured, or keep treasuring, regarding their personal life were never satisfied.

In these Last Times the true ardent Christian's greatest enemies are not certain identifiable political organizations, but the dark dispositions in the hearts of individuals who are not themselves ready and willing to adopt the dispositions of genuine Christianity as motives ruling their own lives, in the first place those of self-denial, true Love towards all of creation and towards God Himself and His Works and Plans, and of whole-heartedly accepting all trials of life and making them fruitful for God, and who do not understand the actual purpose and only meaning, vocation and mission of their own lives on earth. To such souls every soul who sincerely practices the dispositions inherent to being a true Christian in all situations of life is a person to take offence at, a living sign of warning that wakes up their conscience with respect to their own lack of sincere self-denying dedication for the benefit of God's Works, and therefore an enemy. This is why they will easily envelop every true Christian in the darkness from their own hearts, harbouring ill feelings towards him or her. This is persecution in the true spiritual sense of the word.

This is how far Satan's irony goes: In souls who regard themselves as Christians without actually living and feeling in accordance with true Christian views he looks for a fertile soil that appears to be receptive to his injections of darkness, in order that these souls might preferably turn this darkness against the real Christians so as to weaken their Light and fire, and thus tries to accomplish his highly favoured goal: that Christianity should destroy itself from the inside out".
