And as soon as attention is paid to the picture through the will of man, it is seized, i.e., it is impressed upon finest retinas particularly intended for this and is therefore visible to man at any time; he therefore will be able to imagine it when he wants to. This is the so called memory. Read more:

Last year we had 2011 Jul 26 – Mental activity. Heart. Brain. and there it was also about thoughts: moving between the heart and the brain.

And this year it was about thoughts which come to us out of the spiritual kingdom in 2012 Apr 12 – How pigeons navigate.

Today now I read something about thoughts which come into being when we look at material things.

Here Bertha Dudde:

 

Origin of thought in the heart of man.

12. and 13. October 1941. B.D. NR. 2111.

Every thought arises out of the depth of the heart and only then takes its way into the organs determined for it, from which it is perceived as thought and expressed. Because before the thought becomes aware to man, it must be born in the heart, i.e. in the innermost of man. What moves him most deeply, that he perceives in the heart, and this perceiving lets the thought come into being, of course not perceptible with the heart, however born out of the life of perception and now only led to the brain, which takes up the thought and so to speak retains it until man becomes aware of it. Man believes that the thought takes its starting-point in the brain, that it comes into being there through organic activity – because he knows nothing of the nature of thought. And that is why the explanation will not be credible to him that thought has its origin in the heart. But it will be more intelligible for him when he looks at the heart as the centre of his perception – when he makes an effort to also look at thought as a perception. But the simplest solution is that lightning-like spiritual currents flow into a reception container and are seized by the will of man. Therefore thought is spiritual power, which is diverted via the way of the heart to the brain, is seized there, or where the will is weak, is immediately dropped again, without having penetrated the consciousness of man. And it always depends on the will whether a thought is seized by the organs determined for this, because these only function as soon as man wants, and receive the thought arising out of the heart and process it, i.e., it is associated with the thoughts already existing; it therefore is as if arranged in already existing thought material and can now be switched off or switched on arbitrarily, according to the will of man. Because the thinking organs of man are so constructed that every perception of the heart reflects like a picture. (13.10.1941) And as soon as attention is paid to the picture through the will of man, it is seized, i.e., it is impressed upon finest retinas particularly intended for this and is therefore visible to man at any time; he therefore will be able to imagine it when he wants to. This is the so called memory. When man is again made aware of impressions or pictures after a long time, then the thinking organs are active. Among the innumerable retinas covered with pictures they find that which human will wants to imagine, and so long ago passed impressions, which first moved the heart of man before they were formed to thoughts, can be brought into remembrance at any time because they, once accepted by the will of man, remain as impressions until innumerable impressions make the pictures unclear – therefore memory so weak that they no longer come to awareness clearly. Now spiritual impressions will drive out earthly impressions and pictures. When the heart is therefore prepared for receiving power currents out of the spiritual kingdom, then also the human will is prepared to impart to the brain the thoughts born now and to seize them. Because it perceives the power current as beneficial, and it is its endeavour to look at the pictures, which came into being through it, quite often and clearly. Consequently these pictures will engrave themselves particularly sharp so that they soon fill the entire thinking of man. Power and thought is therefore one idea, only that it is different whether only the life power which man receives or the power imparted out of the spiritual kingdom is the origin of thought. But the thought is always born in the heart, because any power flows first to the heart and is sent on from there. However the sending on to the brain can be prevented through human will or the thought be pressed back before it could express itself picture wise. And that is why man is also responsible for his thoughts because his will determines which thoughts get clearly impressed, and his will determines, which thoughts are brought again and again into awareness. Amen. B.D. NR. 2111.

 

We read, "And as soon as attention is paid to the picture through the will of man, it is seized, i.e., it is impressed upon finest retinas particularly intended for this and is therefore visible to man at any time; he therefore will be able to imagine it when he wants to. This is the so called memory."

This process one can quite easily imagine when one thinks of a dream one has had and one remembers after awakening. When attention is paid to the dream picture after waking up, then it is retained and committed to one’s memory – impressed. When no attention is paid to it then it quite soon slips one’s memory – it disappears. But when one pays attention to it, and perhaps even writes it down, then it is impressed, on the retinas of the brain and on paper or the computer.
