For that reason every man is to observe himself, how far he is still earthly minded; in decisive questions he is to break away from every relationship if possible; unreservedly he is to devote himself to the spiritual world of light, and he will then always be sure to be looked after by it; he will speak and think, as it is right before God, and also feel the inner steadfastness, as soon as he supports that thought material, which has been imparted to him in this relationship.

The will determines the thoughts. Responsibility.

17. August 1952. B.D. NR. 5463.

Out of the will of men the thoughts are born, for as his will is, the opposite spiritual powers can have an effect and supply their thought currents to man. Thoughts are always expressions of those powers, which are there accepted, where the will of man is in accordance with that of the spiritual sender. The spiritual powers therefore intervene in the organic activity, a soon as man himself forms thoughts and the content of these thoughts is that spiritual material, which the spiritual powers possess. And so the thinking of man is at it were stimulated by those spiritual powers; they cannot just compulsorily have an effect on the thinking of man, but according to the good or evil directed will the spiritual powers get active, so that it is therefore up to man himself, which spiritual material he mentally receives, whether it touches him out of the kingdom of light or out of the kingdom of darkness, whether it is truth or error, for he himself determines through the direction of his will also those beings, who impart their thought material to him. The will determines the thinking. Therefore man is responsible for his thinking. And for that reason there is only one possibility, to be relieved of responsibility that man trustingly hands himself over to God and to the beings of the world of light, so that his wanting and thinking is directed right. Then man needs to fear no misleading thoughts; then he is led and guided in right thinking; then light beings take over the responsibility, and they will truly only exercise that influence upon man, which promotes good and right thoughts. He needs to fear nothing, when he, before every decision, before every thought activity, which requires right thinking, recommends himself to the heavenly father; when he asks all good beings for protection and help. Then his thinking will be right, for then the beings of darkness find no entry; then they can cause no confusion, no matter on which area it may be. A good will turned towards God protects man from erroneous thinking.

But you men have nevertheless hours, where the thoughts, i.e. the will, is again turned towards the world, and the opponent of God uses this to invalidate that, what good beings have imparted to you. Then doubts start, and then the counter powers immediately have an effect. The desire for the world can hand you over to these counter powers, for the relationship with God, with the world of light, is relaxed through every thought, which is still meant for the world, through every desire, which does not have spiritual aims. For that reason every man is to observe himself, how far he is still earthly minded; in decisive questions he is to break away from every relationship if possible; unreservedly he is to devote himself to the spiritual world of light, and he will then always be sure to be looked after by it; he will speak and think, as it is right before God, and also feel the inner steadfastness, as soon as he supports that thought material, which has been imparted to him in this relationship. Amen.
B.D. NR. 5463.
