Pure truth will touch every man, who desires truth, like a present, which makes him happy. The untrue on the other hand will leave an impression, as if one must defend oneself against an oppression - but always only for that man, who would like to walk in the light, while the effect on world men is an opposite one - that truth touches him unpleasantly, but untruth is acknowledged by him.

Truth addresses the heart.

26. November 1954. B.D. NR. 6120.

What speaks to the heart, that is good and must be seen as divine - but what only addresses the intellect, that will also be the product of the intellect and must therefore also get examined upon its value. But is a man turned to God in his heart, so also his intellectual thinking can be right. But the intellect is mostly ruled by the power opposing God, and for that reason not everything needs to be according to truth, what is the result of the intellect. Here it is indeed only about that knowledge, which can or is to be of influence on the human soul - about knowledge on the religious area, which can exactly be a pure intellectual knowledge or a knowledge imparted into the heart through the spirit of God, but which will also again speak to the heart. If now such knowledge is sent to you men, so you are to examine it before on its value, and you will also be able to do it, when you, in the desire for truth, pay attention, how the knowledge addresses you - whether your heart feels it as right and good and you certainly would like, that this may be truth - or whether you start to think, because this thought material imparted to you lays more claim to your intellect than the heart. Pure truth will touch every man, who desires truth, like a present, which makes him happy. The untrue on the other hand will leave an impression, as if one must defend oneself against an oppression - but always only for that man, who would like to walk in the light, while the effect on world men is an opposite one - that truth touches him unpleasantly, but untruth is acknowledged by him. From which it is already apparent, that spirit speaks to spirit and the intellect to the intellect - therefore everyone striving spiritually lets his heart speak, but the world man only the intellect. The spiritual striving therefore has for that reason a secure signpost, for always only that will address him, what serves his soul - while the intellectual man often not even really uses the intellect to the examination and for that reason the slipping in of error is easily possible. For also spiritual knowledge in the world has become a pure intellectual knowledge; often only the intellect occupies itself with problems, which project into the spiritual area, and man still lays claim on it, that his results are assessed as truth. For that reason the reference is valid here: What speaks to the heart, is good and true; but it must also speak to the heart, to be acknowledged as good and true. For only the heart is receptive for truth, only the heart understands the language of the spirit, which radiates pure truth and therefore announces itself through the heart to man.
Amen. B.D. NR. 6120.
