These are all thoughts, which do not deal with the earthy world.

Deadening of the inner voice through fight against the spirit.

For his soul is so materially focussed that it cannot leave the earth sphere it is hardened equal to matter, which was its thinking and striving in earth life.

 

Bertha Dudde:

 

Deadening of the inner voice through fight against the spirit.

3. September 1953. B.D. NR. 5760.

You are not allowed to fight against the spirit in you, when it wants to express itself and it wants express itself, so you are inwardly pushed to spiritual thoughts, as soon as your thoughts again and again occupy itself with that, what does not concern your body, but the soul as soon as you must think of death, of a continuation of life after death, of God, of a responsibility before him, of your own inadequacy, of faults and weaknesses, which you yourselves feel as such and which make you inwardly unsatisfied and anxious. All these are expressions of the spirit in you, which would like to get through with its voice, which requests its attention to all these things, which alone are important for eternity. These are all thoughts, which do not deal with the earthy world, but refer to the spiritual kingdom, and such thoughts are to be paid attention to, for they emerge not for nothing in man. They are quiet admonitions and warnings; it is the inner voice, which is just not recognized by man as voice and which tells him the same that man is to remember himself and not live along indifferently, is to not just lead an earthly life, because as a result he harms his soul unutterably. The admonitor in man does not keep silence, but is very often ignored, for the voice from the outside is louder and then drowns the inner voice, when man's senses are too much turned towards the world. Then he deadens himself against the fine voice, which sounds in him; he opens eyes and ears only to the world, and then he is in great danger that he completely loses the ability to hear that voice that he loses all faith and is able of no spiritual thought any more. Every man, also the world man standing in the midst of life, has quiet minutes, where he can think of himself, when he wants it. Every man is now and then drawn into conversations, which touch spiritual problems; in every man the spirit seeks to express itself, which is share of God. For God touches all men, and that again and again, because he would like to get them away from the pure earthly and turn them to the spiritual. But who fights the spirit in him, who pushes all thoughts from him, which touch him, who closes himself to every instruction from the inside, he prevents the spirit in him from work to his own damage. For he loses every relationship with the divine; he himself breaks off every bridge he remains on earth and will never be able to enter spiritual spheres, even so his earth life has ended. For his soul is so materially focussed that it cannot leave the earth sphere it is hardened equal to matter, which was its thinking and striving in earth life. And for this soul the way is infinitely far, before it can reach the sphere of the spirit for it is far too much more difficult to go than on earth.
Amen. B.D. NR. 5760.
