But mankind goes past it; only very few refresh themselves with the water of life, only very few men know about pure truth from God and strengthen themselves with it and are therefore in contact with the spiritual world, from where light comes, truth and life. Read more:

Thoughts are connecting currents from the hereafter and earth.

10. and 12. September 1952. B.D. NR. 5484.

The connexion from earth to the spiritual world can exist at any time, because thoughts can go to and fro, i.e., because thoughts are basically the connexion rays, which are send out in the spiritual kingdom and can get caught by men on earth and also again sent back in another form. Therefore this connexion from top to bottom exists in like manner, which cannot be denied. But in the main these connexions are still unconscious to man, for as long as he is still not believing and has gained certain cognition through love, he still does not know about the relationship of the spiritual with the earthy world. And for that reason he can also not control, with which kingdom he is in contact through his thinking. For the thought currents can come from both, the kingdom of light and also from the kingdom of darkness, which he receives, but which he himself can determine through his will. As soon as he is believing, he also demands light; his will is turned to God as the eternal light and will now also secure the supply from the kingdom of light for him. His thinking will be good, for he consciously receives good thought currents, and he averts, what is brought to him from the kingdom of darkness. His will determines the heart to receive and to pass on to the intellect, what touches him as thought currents from the kingdom of light.

So therefore the good thinking wanted by God is to be explained, which that man will inevitably utter, who lives in faith and in love. The desire to serve God will now drive such a right thinking man to that end, to impart his cognitions, his thoughts, to fellowman; to guide him as it were to the same thinking, because it makes himself happy. And this will is of pleasure to God. And he will also always find support, for a right will is the first to let men reach up. Every good thought has as it were its origin with God; it can never be dismissed as being against God; it is the power going out from God, which is caught by light beings and passed on, until it touches the heart of man and is accepted by him. And such good thoughts will also never miss their effect on those fellowmen, who are of a good will. But there is nevertheless a great difference between thought material won through intellectual activity – therefore the use of spiritual power through the intellect – and the direct supply of the spiritual thought material through God’s great love. (11.9.1952) The intellect stops its activity for the time of the supply of thought material, but in return for it the soul gets active as receiver. The spiritual ear opens, and the thought currents from the spiritual kingdom pour in, and they get caught. The radiations from the kingdom of light touch the spiritual ear; it supplies it to the soul; it feels addressed; it "receives"; passes it on to the intellect, which receives mechanically; gets the bodily organs active to hold on to it, and to only afterwards concern itself with the received, i.e. through own thinking, through intellectual activity, lets it become spiritual property. Receiving always presupposes a giver or sender, in contrast to personal production, to a result through own work, in this case busy activity of the intellect. God himself wants to give something, what men do not possess and also cannot create for themselves. For that purpose he supplies his word to earth and through the word knowledge, which is according to truth, which no man could let come into being out of own power, which just needs to be received to possess it. God instructs man; the light world instructs him – but always through the spirit, which rests in man himself idle so long, until the will of man determines him, to renounce himself – until man regards the spiritual kingdom more than the earthly kingdom – until man enters into the relationship with God and in this way finds access to that kingdom, from which truth comes to him. (12.9.1952) But so God himself teaches man, truth, as real knowledge, is given to him. It is not demanded of him to do intellectual work, but those thoughts ascend from the heart, which the spirit awakens in man – which, because it is share of the divine father spirit, can only produce truthful thoughts, which the ear of the soul hears and acknowledges them, must acknowledge them for that reason, because with truth man is given at the same time also competence to judge for the real and true. Man can certainly also consider himself as taught by God, whose intellect is eagerly active through intimate prayer towards God for his enlightenment. Then he believes having worked on the mental result himself, but it is nevertheless sent to him through his spirit, but not in an unusual way. But it is different, when truth is supplied to earth by God, when God teaches a man through the inner word. Then, through literal transmission, he receives directly a comprehensive knowledge, which he did not possess before, which does not slumber in him as subconscious and which he does not win through mental work. And it still comes from the inside, for it is the divine spirit in man, which speaks to him, which imparts knowledge to him so that it touches the soul as spoken word; that it emerges as thought in the heart, which is not formed by man according to own will, but which forms itself to words of deepest meaning, which man as willing receiver writes down so as heard. This is an unusual process insofar as that no other source is to be discovered than the inner being of man; it is the living water, which flows out of the body of him, who God himself instructs through his spirit. For the divine spirit is the original spirit, which truly has the water of life in fullness. But mankind goes past it; only very few refresh themselves with the water of life, only very few men know about pure truth from God and strengthen themselves with it and are therefore in contact with the spiritual world, from where light comes, truth and life. Amen.
B.D. NR. 5484.
