The hearing inwards requires greatest self-overcoming because all thinking must be shut out, so that only spiritual good can be supplied from the heart to the brain. Read more:

On this website we have had a look at several messages from Bertha Dudde, which dealt with hearing from God.

Here a link to a webpage, which lists several other webpages, which deal with this subject: 2012 Jul 20 The sounding word.

Here are two more messages:

 

Strong or weakened will for receiving. Love towards God.

13. July 1942. B.D. NR. 2408a

The conscious burying of self into a spiritual state demands increased will power and therefore must be practised always and constantly and that is why man is not to give it up to not become lukewarm and unable for a task, which causes such burying. Man must practise shutting out of all thoughts when he wants of hear the fine voice in himself; and further must he listen attentively inwards. The spirit of God is always prepared to offer divine gift, but the soul not always able to absorb what is offered to it. And so the soul does not open itself completely, the spirit cannot impart the divine gift to it, or else the soul hears only unclear and not properly comprehensible to it, what the spirit out of God wants to tell it. But the spirit is willing to give, and it has to hand out valuable goods and that is why the soul should make use of every possibility to receive the valuable gift. Because it means spiritual riches for the soul, which is immortal. No limits are set for the receiving Earth child when only the will of man is so strong that he completely separates from the earthly world. When he succeeds in this, the spirit out of God can express itself already and now teach man. The hearing inwards requires greatest self-overcoming because all thinking must be shut out, so that only spiritual good can be supplied from the heart to the brain. And this favour is the result of right walk of life before God and increased love work, and that is why man will be able to shut out his thoughts the easier the more active he practises neighbourly love. The clearer and more comprehensible thoughts will flow towards him until man reaches the state without effort where thoughts flow towards him uninterruptedly and without break and can just as well be reproduced because then the work of the spirit is so strong that it inevitably must earn man a rich knowledge. But first man still must wrestle and pray very much, and indeed the more he finds it difficult getting into intimate initial contact with God and his beings in the hereafter. Through intimate prayer he can demand the power out of God, which he needs for his soul that it hears the voice of the spirit in it and therefore can receive the divine gift. Amen. B.D. NR. 2408a.

 

Strong or weakened will for receiving. Love towards God.

14. July 1942. B.D. NR. 2408b

The effectiveness of the spirit is lessened when the will of man is not strong enough to resist the influences from outside. The spark of the spirit inside man certainly receives the influx out of the spiritual kingdom, but it is not able to make the gift of the spirit comprehensible to the soul of man, or also, the soul of man is not able to hear what is offered to it, because the will is not exclusively intended for the divine gift. And that so long until it has summoned the strength to turn away from everything what appears to be desirable to the body. Every connection with the spiritual world is an act of complete devotion to it, therefore the earthly, the bodily desire must be put back, and where the will for this cannot be summoned, there an unhindered work of the spirit is not possible, otherwise the favour of God would flow to man against his will, but it must be completely turned towards the reception of this favour. The will of man alone is determining, because it testifies to the degree of love of the heart. The love towards God is always expressed in the will of man, and so the will to receive will also correspond to the love of man towards God. When the heart pushes towards God, then also the will is strong to overcome any obstacle; but if the will is weak then also the desire of the heart towards God is not great, and therefore the currents out of the spiritual kingdom cannot become so effective that they can be imparted to the soul. Intimate prayer indeed increases will power, but also this intimacy depends on the love towards God, so that it is understandable that the ability to receive is not always the same when man is not in always the same will of love and work of love. Man must want to give all the time because then he will also be allowed to receive all the time, because first his will towards God testifies to his will turned to him, which is precondition, that the spirit out of God can work. And the deeper and more intimate the devotion is the more comprehensible the soul hears what the spirit wants to impart because it then loses every union with the earthly world and accepts the gifts out of the spiritual world. Spiritual gift is valuable good that is now also to be desired and received correspondingly and that is why the undivided will of man is needed to be able go over into his possession. The greater the will of man is to receive, the greater is also the will of the spiritual beings to give, which can impart the spiritual gifts to him, but which are subject to the divine laws, therefore can only have an effect with fullest agreement of man, which is expressed in a strong will. Amen. B.D. NR. 2408b.
