But man is never the author of his thoughts himself - he never has the ability to produce these thoughts himself although he often is convinced of it that everything is his own spiritual product what he has won through intellectual activity.

2009 August 30
The origin of thought is the spiritual kingdom. They are radiations out of the spiritual kingdom, which circle round us men like waves to now be received or suppressed according to our will. Every thought is the expression of a being working for God or his opponent - but never the own product of man because even in the state of perfection one day in the spiritual kingdom the being always only radiates that what it gets from the source - from God himself - as love power, which includes highest wisdom.

On the 30. August 2009 I read the following message by Bertha Dudde and it deals with a matter that has fascinated me since a long time - thought activity:
11. and 12. October 1955. B.D. NR 6375.
What is thought? You can never get this question answered scientifically as long as the researchers themselves do not go into spiritual knowledge, as long as they just try to solve it purely rationally because the origin of thought is the spiritual kingdom. They are radiations out of the spiritual kingdom, which circle round you men like waves to now be received or suppressed according to your will. They are radiations which touch your thought organs and put them into action when you are ready for it, i.e. willing to establish contacts with the beings, which beam at you. It is an exchange of power and a process - but which is organized by two sides, but it is left to the will of man with which side he establishes contacts. You have to know that you have been created in such a way that all organs have to carry out a certain activity, and for every function there exist special organs, which now work according to the will on man, partly also still subject to natural law because they carry out a life-saving function. You also have to know that a certain freedom was granted to you for the duration of your earthly life - which is expressed in this respect that the function of certain organs depends on your will because this is to be tried out and is to prove itself in earthly life. And to it also belongs your activity of the intellect, which you can develop yourself, but for which you also have been given a capability of thinking. But this capability of thinking does not exist in you producing the thoughts yourselves but you have to let something take effect, by virtue of your capacity to think, which flows towards you, something spiritual, which washes around you all the time like waves. You have to receive the thoughts which flow towards you and now process them with your intellect, but it is completely up to you if and which thoughts you take up, but the will and the choice is decisive for your spiritual upward development. Thoughts are spiritual power radiations, which start from God himself in unimaginable fullness of light - first received from light beings, which again seek to make happy with the received and so means a ceaseless passing on to all beingness capable of thinking. But also the present prince of darkness once was a receiver of light and power. He also feeds radiations of his own record towards the beingness. And so man as a being capable of thinking will be able to accept streams of thoughts from both sides, the radiations of good and bad powers will always be expressed as waves of thoughts; man will always accept those thoughts, which correspond with his will; thoughts will never exert a compelling influence but only push themselves forward or will be rejected corresponding to the will and nature of man. But man is never the author of his thoughts himself - he never has the ability to produce these thoughts himself although he often is convinced of it that everything is his own spiritual product what he has won through intellectual activity. He only makes use of the waves of thought which circle around him - and also can use them to a very high degree by virtue of his ability to think, which is granted to him by the creator. And thoughts full of light will again and again come up in a man who turns more to the darker streams of thoughts. But thoughts, no matter of what direction, will never settle in the organs of thinking against the will of man. And that is what he is for, to choose with which thoughts he wants to concern himself. By the ability to think is meant to be able to go into the currents, which touch man as thoughts, to understand their meaning, to sort them out logically - thus to utilize all thoughts flowing towards him. But for that the will is necessary for the time being. Because man is not forced to open himself to the thought waves flowing to him, can therefore reject the thoughts in a certain lethargy of thinking - but as he on the other hand also can take up thoughts, which reach him from below, which are therefore bad and worthless in their content. It is always his will which determines the direction of the thoughts and also the origin. Streams of thoughts from the world full of light will have - when the will of man is ready to accept them - a power effect at the same time, as man's ability to think increases and is cleared. So who is intellectually busy with spiritual questions, he accepts as it were these questions from beings of the kingdom of light, the thought waves cause a desire in his soul to receive enlightenment. This desire is seized by the organs of thinking and only from this moment on conscious to the intellect of man. And now he has established contact with the being which sent the radiation to him - which carries out its activity on behalf of God or also on behalf of his opponent: to spread light or darkness. Every thought is the expression of a being working for God or his opponent - but never the own product of man because even in the state of perfection one day in the spiritual kingdom the being always only radiates that what it gets from the source - from God himself - as love power, which includes highest wisdom. Out of the dissimilarity of thinking of men follows that endless many different degrees of knowledge distinguish the spiritual beings, but that they all have access to man because his will itself can protect him from error or faulty spiritual products and because God also grants his opponent the same right to have an effect on man - because of the decision of will, which is purpose and aim of life on earth as man. The ability of man to think can also weigh up the different thoughts. Man can conclude, and his will also can through this conclusion change the direction first adopted, and his intellect will refuse untrue thought products, when he is of good will. Because the effort of the light beings who have the fullest truth will never stop to let the right thoughts flow towards men, who have been handed over to their care because that is their mission to spread light and truth and to chase away darkness - which they carry out conscientiously. And a heart that opens, a man who desires truth, will be allowed to receive riches of thoughts, which meet with response in him. The radiations from the kingdom of light will arouse a bright light also in himself, man will believe to have reached the results through his own thinking, which is however only true insofar as he now has made use of his ability to think to make that his spiritual property what before has flown towards him - but which now remains with him so that he also again will be able to radiate if he is allowed heartening activity in the spiritual kingdom. Amen. B.D. NR. 6375.
Our decisive instrument is our will. With our will we make decisions. With our will we decide what we think - what kind of thoughts we entertain. The struggle takes place in our will. When we are spiritually orientated then we will not make carnal decisions.
The relevant scripture is 2 Corinthians 10:3-5:
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds; casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.
We bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.
There is another scripture that deals with the here described state of affairs - 1 Corinthians 2:16:
But we have the mind of Christ.
It is our job to let ourselves be beamed up by the right mind, the mind of Christ. And this we do consciously. Consciously we let ourselves be beamed up by this mind. And when we notice that we are beamed up by the wrong side then we take captive this what beams us up. We make use of our intellect and destroy with it such a strong hold.
We make use of this time before the storm to practise this - to prepare ourselves for the coming fight.
Another way to explain this that all thoughts actually come from one source, from God, is to consider that there is oneness. There is only one and that is God and everything belongs to this one.
And so there is also only one mind and that is the mind of Christ, and that is the one which we have, and when we do not have this mind of Christ then there is something wrong. Then there is no oneness, it is destroyed.
