HAPPINESS IS ATTAINED BY LIVING IN THE DIVINE WILL
FROM THE BOOK OF HEAVEN
V28 – 2.26.30 – “My daughter (Luisa), what a Sweet Memory is the Creation of man. He was Happy, and We too felt the Fruit of the Happiness of Our Work; We felt such Pleasure in Loving him and in being Loved back. Our Divine Will Preserved him for Us Fresh and Beautiful, and carrying him in Its Arms of Light, It let Us contemplate how Beautiful was the Work Created by Us, Our dear son; and, as Our son, We kept him in Our House, amidst Our endless Goods, and, as a consequence, as Our son, he acted as master. It would have been against the nature of Our Love not letting the one whom We so much Loved, and who so much Loved Us, act as master. In true Love there is no ‘mine’ and ‘yours,’ but everything is in common. And besides, letting him act as master caused no harm to Us; on the contrary, it gladdened Us, it made Us smile, it amused Us, it gave Us the beautiful Surprise of Our Own Goods.
“And then, how could he not be master if he possessed Our Divine Will that lords over everything and dominates everything? In order not to make him master, We would have had to place Our Divine Will in servitude, that could not be—wherever It Reigns, there are no servitudes, but everything is mastership. Therefore, for as long as man Lived in Our Divine Fiat, he knew no servitude; as he sinned, withdrawing from Our Divine Volition, he lost the mastership and reduced himself to servitude. What a change! From son, to servant! He lost the command over created things, he became the servant of everything. By withdrawing from Our Divine Fiat, he felt shaken from his very foundations, and he felt his very person vacillating; he experienced what weakness is, and felt himself the servant of passions that made him feel ashamed of himself; and he reached the point of losing the dominion of himself. So, Strength, Light, Grace, Peace, were no longer in his power as before, but he had to beg for them with tears and prayers from his Creator. Do you see, then, what Living in My Divine Will means? To be master. A servant is one who does his own will.”
And I, surprised by the speaking of Jesus, told Him: “My Love, for as much as it is consoling to hear You speak about Your Divine Will, so it is sorrowful to hear about the evils of the human will.”
And Jesus added: “My daughter, if it is necessary to speak to you about My Divine Fiat, that will serve as invitation, attractions, voices, tender, sweet and strong, to call everyone to Live in the Royal Palace of My Divine Will, that they may no longer be servants, but masters; so it is necessary to speak to you of the evils of the human will. In fact, I will never take free willing away from man, therefore it is necessary that in the Kingdom of My Divine Will I have the mounting of guards, the noble sentries, that may keep the creatures on their guard, making known to them the great evil of the human will, so that they may stand at attention, and, abhorring it, they may Love the Happiness and the mastership that My Divine Will gives them.”
V28 – 5.2.30 – ““My daughter (Luisa), My Divine Will always runs as Prime Act of life toward the creature; and It runs to make her happy, to embrace her, to empty the weight of all human acts. In fact, everything that is not My Will in the creature is hard, heavy and oppressing, and My Will empties all that is human, and with Its light breath, It renders all things light. Therefore, the sign that the soul lives in My Divine Will is that she feels happiness within herself, because My Will is happiness by Its own nature, nor can It give unhappiness to one who lives in It, because It does not possess it, nor does It want to, or can, change Its nature. Therefore, one who lives in My Fiat feels within herself the virtue-bearer of happiness, and in everything she does she feels a vein of happiness flowing, that renders every act, every pain and sacrifice, light.
“This happiness carries with itself the emptying of all evils, and it fills the creature with invincible strength, in such a way that, with all truth, she can say: ‘I can do anything, I can reach anything, because I feel transmuted into the Divine Will that has banished weaknesses, miseries, passions away from me. My very will, made happy by Its happiness, wants to drink in large gulps Its Divine Happiness, and does not want to have anything more to do with living but of Divine Will.’ Unhappinesses, bitternesses, weaknesses, passions, do not enter into My Will, but remain outside of It. Its balsamic air sweetens and fortifies everything; and the more the soul lives in It and repeats her acts in My Divine Volition, the more degrees of Happiness, of Sanctity, of Strength and Divine Beauty she acquires; and even in the very created things, she feels the happiness of her Creator that they bring to her. My Divine Will wants to make the creature who lives in It feel the nature of Its happiness, and therefore It makes her happy in the light of the sun, in the air that she breathes, in the water that she drinks, in the food that she eats, in the flower that cheers her. In sum, in everything It makes one feel that It can give but happiness to the creature, therefore Heaven is not far from her, but inside of her, wanting to make her happy in everything.”
V28 – 5.10.30 – “Now, if We poured so much happiness into all Creation, in creating man not only did We create him twice as happy, giving him the vein of happiness in the mind, in the gaze, in the word, in the heartbeat, in the motion, in the step, but We gave him, in his power, happiness itself, multiplying it in each good act, word, step and everything else that he would do. There were no limits of happiness for him as in created things; to man was given the virtue of growing ever more in happiness. But this, if he would let himself be dominated by My Divine Will; without It (Divine Will), Happiness cannot Reign. Oh! if created things could go out of Our Fiat, they would instantly lose the happiness and would change into the most unhappy works. Therefore, if you want to be happy, let yourself be Dominated by My Divine Will, because It alone has the virtue of giving happiness to the creature, and of changing the most bitter things into the sweetest nectar.
“My daughter (Luisa), You Must Know that We loved the creature with perfect love, and therefore, in creating her, We placed in her complete happiness, complete love, sanctity and beauty, so that the creature might place herself in a contest with Us and requite Us with complete happiness, love and sanctity, in a way that We might delight so much in her, as to be able to say: ‘How beautiful is the work created by Us.’ And in order to be sure that Our gifts would not suffer any detriment in the creature, We entrusted her to Our Divine Will, that It might serve her as life, to keep in her Our Happiness, Our Love, Our Sanctity and Beauty, making them always grow. Therefore, all the good of man was bound to Our Divine Will; once Our Will is rejected, all goods end, nor is there greater misfortune than that of not letting oneself be dominated by My Divine Will, because It alone is the preserver and the call of Our goods in the creature.”
