Sense and Purpose of Life
The divine world is able to intervene in human life if it is considered necessary to promote the individual’s spiritual development. In the case of an adult for example, this may prevent him from burdening himself further while on earth. And for children this is an opportunity for a careful education in a children’s paradise of the spiritual world. Thus, there are various possibilities for a quicker ascent, since their further path in the spiritual world has already been planned in advance. Each and every one is cared for and not left alone.
Children Growing Up in the Spiritual World
After a long illness, a ten-year-old girl named Monika entered the spiritual world. In the beginning, she had difficulties adjusting to the conditions in the new world and longed for her parents who had cared for her so affectionately. Eventually she found a new home in a foster family with five other children. Among the children there were two each who spoke English, French and German. Thus, Monika learned these languages in the family and also attended spiritual schools where she studied the same subjects as did children on earth. For all children who die at an early age, the divine world wishes to promote their spiritual ascent.
