Interwoven in Billy's German spiritual teaching texts is an evolution-CODE. The code releases impulses from the storage-banks which reach the reader and begin to work evolutively in him or her... The German language originated from the Old-Lyrian and, interestingly, has the same amount of characters per word.
Might of Thoughts xvi and xvii
Is the storage bank in the other world created by the spirit form. It is the place where the consciousness-block is dissolved and another one built up.
impulsation: translation for the German, Regung, According to Billy, a "regung" is an impulsation. Impulsating or impulsation are new words, with the meaning; something goes in, something develops. There are various forms of Regungen, such as thought-Regungen, feeling-Regungen, and so on.
Originally this book was an article for something called the Voice of the Aquarian Age then it was decided that it would become a brochure because of the length. Eventually, the decision was made to make it into a book. However, this writing first appeared as a brochure. This book is about the correct operation of our thoughts, which is indispensable for the needed evolution of our consciousness.
He or she can no longer hide the evolution of our consciousness under a bushel and regard it as a luxury.
One could compare the evolution of the consciousness to a tree, whereby the visible part - namely the trunk and the crown - embodies the external realm of life, while the roots symbolise the inner realm.
So we have an external visible aspect to ourselves as well as an internal aspect. The Meier information emphasis the idea of balance.
If the external and internal growth is in balance, then we have a firmly rooted tree which withstands the wind and weather. But if an imbalance emerges between the inner and outer, then the tree collapses in stormy weather, because the roots are laid out too flat.
An imbalance is a lack of proportion or relation between corresponding things.
In botany, a tree is a perennial plant with an elongated stem, or trunk, supporting branches and leaves in most species. Trees have been in existence on the Earth for 370 million years. Trees play a significant role in reducing erosion and moderating the climate. The roots of a tree serve to anchor it to the ground and gather water and nutrients to transfer to all parts of the tree. It has been demonstrated that some trees are interconnected through their root system, forming a colony. A transverse section through a tree trunk or a horizontal core will show concentric circles - tree rings. These rings are the annual growth rings. The universe also has concentric circles or rings that are referred to as belts. We live in the material belt of our universe.

Studying Cypress Trees, The Climate Detective - Texas Parks and Wildlife - From studying the rings of Texas Cypress Trees that can determine how often there have been droughts in the past.
Profound thoughts about life and and existence have become a rarity.
228 the belts of our universe are discussed as follows
, they have no idea that the visible universe is only one of seven belts of the universe. They have no idea at all about the belt of our material universe, in which we exist materially, while on the inner side and the outer side of our visible, material-universe belt yet six further fine-matter belts exist.
So the book which lies before you is dedicated to a human kind that is ill in its consciousness, so that it finds again the creational-natural way which it lost long ago.
In 1991 Billy and Elizabeth Moosbrugger view a Fantastic Spectacle which is mentioned in Contact Report 239. They saw three disk shaped UFOs that were each 300 meters in diameter. They exhibited a pulsating and rightward rotating motion of whitish color. They were three large spaceships from the neighboring DAL Universe. The ships were on an exploration and research flight in our Universe, whereby they also inspected the Semjase Silver Star Center.
FIGU Bulletin 56"
An ancient proverb states: "Everyone is the smith of his own success/luck/happiness" ["Everyone is the architect of his own fortune" / "You make your luck"]
However, an evolution of the consciousness can only come about through the independent thinking of each human being. But thinking is more and more stunted on our planet because we live in a consumer society in which every-thing is pre-chewed to an excessive degree by television, radio, newspapers, magazines and books, for which reason the human being no longer needs to think for himself/herself at all. As a rule, he/she faithfully, takes on the presented body of thought and aligns his/her life accordingly. So in the great mass, there are only foew who really have their own thoughts about that which they hear, see, read, feel and perceive.
Its hard to imagine that we actually live in society where independent thinking is rare. Independent thinking leads to the evolution of the consciousness. But today people are told how they should think. They are told by the media, by churches, by organizations of various kinds what they should think. Thought is an idea or opinion produced by thinking or occurring suddenly in the mind. Thought is the process of using one's mind to consider or reason about something.
|Daily Life Motivation #123 - Think Independently|
|Dumbing Down America Mass Media Programming|
So people do not think independently anymore and therefore, there is not an evolution of the consciousness. Evolution any process of formation or growth; development: Evolution a process of gradual, peaceful, progressive change or development, as in social or economic structure or institutions. Evolution means a progression.
A refutation of false claims and distortions by Korff,
Deardorff, James, Internet, January 1996
One also needs to ask, Would the writer of Matthew have had reason to omit the word "logic" or sentences that express the concept, when editing the TJ and forming his gospel from it? The answer to this question is also affirmative. Consistent with other alterations that the compiler of Matthew is deduced to have made to the TJ, he is seen to have omitted TJ teachings that encourage the reader or listener to think for himself. This was apparently because followers of the new religion were supposed to obey the teachings of the church and its priests and scribes rather than to think independently. And if one uses logic, one is thinking independently for oneself.
Later on the Might of the Thoughts will explain how faith short circuits logic. Here is some more information that Asket gave Billy about how we here on the earth cannot think independently and cannot cope with the truth.
Explanations Part 5
The human is still not capable of coping with, and fully understanding, the truth. And he is not yet mature enough to know his future and to approach it correctly. For that reason the truth must be rewritten prophetically for him, as in equations, in order to make him think independently, whereby he slowly finds and recognises the truth himself.
Ausartung means to get very bad get-out of the control of the good human nature. On its own negative thinking leads to Ausartung just as much as purely positive thinking does. The neutral postive equalised mode of thinking is needed to repair the psyche. The might of the thinking is every human beings key to his/her personal power in all things. The human being has to learn to stop doing things which he/she does not want to do in his/her life but which he/she does without knowing why. Many human beings nurture wish-dreams; those which do come to fruition. That which the human being mightfully thinks, manifests for him/her. A plant sprouts from a seed and can therefore not come into existence without it. Everything springs forth from the might of the human being's thoughts.
Here is a great movie it is called Reincarnation and the Spirit-form by Michael Uyttebroek of FIGU-Landesgruppe Canada. There are some additional notes associated with this movie (see The Spirit Form). Each spirit form creates the Overall Consciousness-block in the spiritual realm. The Overall Consciousness-block creates the consciousness-block associated with each material lifetime. Here are some interesting posts some of which relate to the current topic.
It's the spirit form and the "comprehensive consciousness block" (Gesamtbewusstseinsblock) that enter the Beyond. The spirit form and the comprehensive consciousness block "analyses/reviews" ( = aufarbeiten) what has not been digested/assimilated prior to death. Love, wisdom etc. are transformed into a fine-matter form. The former personality is dissolved and transformed into neutral energy. Then a new personality is "worked out"/developed which incarnates - together with the spirit form - into an embryo at the 21st day after conception. The new personality has nothing in common with the former one!
All of the human being's might is anchored in his/her thoughts.
so that they begin to live according to the old saying which says, "The human being is the forger of his/her own fortune.
Billy goes on to say that children are included in this statement. Both the young and the old. He also mentions that pain, suffering, afflication and disadvantage occur because of the lack of understanding related to the power of the thoughts.
"The human being is the forger of his/her own fortune." and , indeed, in the form that the human being forms his/her luck by means of his/her thoughts, in each case according to how he/she choses them and reinforces them.
...the external circumstances of life and the way through life...
Billy is refering to the having the ability to affect the external circumstances...
However, thoughts must be neither purely negative nor purely positive, but equalised; indeed, neutral-positive equalised.
Neutral-positive equalised thinking therefore means that both positive and negative must be brought together and equalized, whereby a healthy and progressive thinking arises. On its own, negative thinking leads to Ausartung just as much as purely positive thinking does.
he/she is the creator of his/her own morality, character and entire personality. Along with that, he/she is the also the creator of the state of his/her own psyche and is the smith of his/her entire life circumstances, environment and entire destiny.
The Psyche is the block or factor which controls that thoughts and the feelings associated to the material consciousness. The power of the material consciousness is not really appreciated today; infact, even such things as the Stigmatization that people experience really come from their own material consciousness.
We really do create our life circumstances, our environment, destiny, our personality.The Garden Analogy
Since ancient times, the saying has prevailed, that those who make efforts regarding a matter actually will also harvest results.
The human being must make the effort to clarify his/her thoughts which then become more valuable, purposive and productive, and form life in a more harmonious and more equalised way. Yet everything needs patience and practice, as well as an unremitting effort, because only thereby can the door to real knowledge be found and opened...
To clarify means to make (a statement or situation) less confused and more clearly comprehensible.
To clarify means to make clear or easier to understand; To clear of confusion or uncertainty:
To clarify means to make (an idea, statement, etc.) clear or intelligible; to free from ambiguity.
The word confusion means a lack of understanding; uncertainty. Confusion comes from the Latin confusio and meant to pour together, to mingle together; So with confusion the boundary between things are lost and the distinctions between things are lost. Our thoughts become more purposive having, showing, or acting with a purpose, intention, or design. When those thoughts are clarified.
For me the clarification of my thoughts come when I go back over things again and again. Klarung is the German word for clarification. We should practice clarifying our thoughts.
Eliminate Impure Thoughts Page 22
All wrong useless, negative and impure thoughts are eliminated in order to obtain the necessary space for the useful, pure, neutral-positive-equalised right and cultivated thoughts.
In regards to the impure Jmmanuel wrote the following in his final teachings : "Truly, I say to you, a love that is unlimited, constant and unfailing is unconditional and is a pure love, in whose fire all that is impure and evil will burn.
"Everything humans possess has its origin in Creation; therefore it belongs to Creation
"Human beings shall transform their entire spiritual lives and perfect them, so that they will become one with Creation
He/she is master of his/her own psychical state Page 22
He/she discovers that he/she is master of his/her pwn psychical state, and that he himself/she herself is responsible for whether the psyche influences the life in state of turmoil and imbalance, or in a state of harmony and equalisedness.
Psyche is the name for the half-material block and factor, which, in the material body of a form of life - in this case, the human - organises and administers, within itself, in a negative or positive sequence, the thoughts and feelings of the material consciousness
The material consciousness is the human brain, the cerebrum (big brain), - The direct - It personifies the force in human in which all functions of decision-making, all thought-processes, considerations and deliberations and also speculations, etc, etc are executed, so thus actual thinking.
The Psyche arranges the thoughts.
When a human being starts a garden is started it is certain that some form of plant will be produced in it, regardless of whether the piece of land is cultivated and tended or is grossly neglected.
The consciousness is like a garden and if it is not correctly maintained there will be wildly growing, negative thoughts which have a confusing and destructive effect. These wildly growing thoughts are much like the destructive weeds that appear in our gardens.
Once animated and created, then they develop their own life, exactly as with plants. The human being gathers the sweet as well as the bitter fruits of his or her own thoughts. When a human being starts a garden, then it is certain that some form of plant life will be produced in it. If negative thoughts are allowed to grow in our consciousness, then they proliferate luxuriously like wildly growing weeds which displace everything. If useful seeds are sown then good and healthy plants / thoughts grow in our consciousness.
But the reason that psychically disturbed human beings of all kinds only see black in black and, therefore, negatively, is that their perceptional ability is very limited. whereby the world of thoughts also inevitable falls prey to a limitation, and is only able to move in a narrow framework which only allows the limited and negative perceptions. The thoughts are thereby forced into a cycle in which the same thoughts and themes of thoughts appear over and over again, whereby a rotation of the thoughts is practically called forth. And once such a rotation of the thoughts has begun to operate then the human being who is controlled by it is barely able to free himself/herself from it any more if he/she does not his/her world of thoughts in a positive wise again, and does not broaden his field of perception again.
Only to quickly it can happen that the capacity for perception is impaired through negative and wrong thoughts, and, in certain respects, a delusional state is called forth. As a matter of fact, the border between normality and being delusional is blurred; consequently, genius and madness can merge unnoticeably.
Every human being... can fall prey at any time to insanity, to delusion, or simply to a psychical disorder or psychical illness.
Might of Thoughts page 26
Whoever has negative thoughts will soon allow himself to be controlled by them.
Might of Thoughts page 28
Consequently, the human being is shaken and knocked about by the circumstances of his/her life as long as he/she believes himself/herself to be a helpless created creation of external conditions and influences.
Might of Thoughts page 28
He/She actually becomes the lord and master of himself/herself and his/her entire life. Every human being who practises self-cognition and takes up self-examination and lets appropriate self-control grow, learns this fact.
Self-cognition would be knowing oneself.
Might of Thoughts page 32
That which the human being thinks he makes real...
Good and positive thoughts must be tended and nurtured...
The human being should have a good positive opinion of himself/herself...
Nurture Neutral Positive Thoughts Nurture means to feed and protect. Nurture can also mean to support and encourage, as during the period of training or development; foster: It means to bring up; train; educate; As a noun nurture is the act or process of promoting the development, etc, of a child. c.1300, "breeding, upbringing," from Old French norture, nourreture "food, nourishment; education, training". Actually one of the words that came up for nurture in the German was to cherish. I like the idea of cherishing healthy, good thoughts. To cherish means to hold (something) dear.
Might of Thoughts page 32
If a human beings becomes a criminal, a felon, a miser, depraved ,virtueless, jealous, vengeful or a hater, and so forth, then he/she has already maintained the corresponding thoughts in his/her consciousness for a long time...
Might of Thoughts page 32
He / She never ends in the gutter because of some kind of tyranny.
Might of Thoughts page 36
Thus, at birth, when there are basic characteristics already present, then these were already formed with the development of the human being in the womb, simply through the might of the thoughts of the developing human being.
The Fetus in human development, a fetus is a prenatal human between its embryonic state and its birth. The fetal stage of development tends to be taken as beginning at the gestational age of eleven weeks, i.e. nine weeks after fertilization. Since the spirit form enters the womb at 21 days, I wonder if the human embryo might even have some form of thinking before it enters the fetal stage. So could the developing human be thinking even before nine weeks, its an incredible notion?
The embryo is generally considered to be between the first and the eighth week of development after fertilization. In Contact 200 Billy mentions the fetus becomes animated in the womb through the spirit form. Quetzal mentions that the idea of Mary’s Immaculate Conception was incorrect; however, he mentions that this idea came about in 1857 (see line 8 Contact 200). Which I thought was much later and that this idea probably came about sooner. In fact in earlier times the church thought that the fetus was "inanimate” up to 80 days after the conception. (see line 10 Contact 200). Quetzal goes on to mention that the fetus, which some might argue is technically still an embryo, recieves the human spirit at 21 days (see line 13 Contact 200).
In Contact Report 260 line 72-75 it states that the fetus feels pain by the 12th week or by the 3rd month. Contact Report 260 also states that at 21 days, when the spirit form enters that the heart starts to beat and our scientists cannot fathom that for some reason. Just as a side note I would like to mention that the consciousness of the child is damaged by radiation something that is mentioned in FIGU_Bulletin_006.
Might of Thoughts page 36
As a matter of fact, thoughts pertaining to profound learning and the forming of personality, as well as the forming of morality and the psyche and the basic character are, namely, already maintained by the developing human being in the womb.
DISCOVERY CHANNEL;The Ultimate Guide to Pregnancy - Here is an interesting movie that talks about the development of the human being in the womb.Another interesting thing to take into consideration is that there is something called the energy-fetus in creation. This energy-fetus is mentioned in Contact 134 at line 176 and is called the tiny core of creation in which the bing bang developed.
Might of Thoughts page 36
The human being attracts that which he/she is
Billy has a book called Arahat Athersata and an excerpt from that book can be found at the Arahat Athersata on the future of mankind site. The Arahat Athersata is also the first level (or plane) where dwell the pure spirit forms. It takes a spirit billions of years to evolve into this pure spirit form. It is also the name of a book transcribed by Billy Meier that contains advice to the Earth human from pure spirit forms on the Arahat Athersata plane. Arahat Athersata means "The Precious One Who Contemplates the Times". The Time for human evolution is explained by the following
People live in such lofty spheres in the half material forms that we can no longer communicate with them. This is explained a little more detail in Contact Report 3.
Correct thinking and knowledge is such a monstrous power that it is able to ceaselessly attract and bring into being everything that the human thinks and longs for.
Might of Thoughts page 36
God is he/she that forms the human beings destiny - and this God is the inner self from which the thoughts, with might are created... Therefore, the human being himself/herself creates, through the might of his/her thoughts, every one of his/her states, regardless of whether it is a state of actual inner freedom, or a negative state of inner imprisonment.
Might of Thoughts page 38
Wishes and prayers are never petitions to a god or saint, rather they are thoughts generated by oneself which are fed back - out of the consciousness and inner self - to one's own consciousness and inner self, to thereby create fulfillment.
Mein Geist, der du bist in Allmacht.
This prayer is not directed to the spirit form, but to the human being's material consciousness block, because that's where all the work concerning the conscious evolution of the human being is done. In old times there was only one expression for the material consciousness block and the spiritual consciousness block (spirit form) of the human being and this expression was "spirit."
These are some of the prayers of Nokodemion
Might of Thoughts page 44
The thinking is imprisoned by the addiction and rotates around it in an everlasting circle, which has no end...
Addiction Including Addiction to World Domination Addiction is a chronic brain disease that causes compulsive substance use despite harmful consequences. Health, finances, relationships, and careers can be ruined. The abuse of drugs and alcohol is by far the leading cause of preventable illnesses and premature death in our society.
Goblet of Truth LXIX Page 69 of 679 Even the powerful ones of the economy are feeling the might and obeying the evil laws of the dark order which is spreading its dangerous and fatal poison of hatred everywhere, into everything and against everyone who does not share the same opinion as the dark might.
The Dark Order is called a mighty organzation that comes out of our governing class. It is also called the Secret Order of Darkness and it has its own set of laws. Its goals are obtaining the following:
Zionism is a worldwide Jewish movement that resulted in the establishment and development of the state of Israel
Ron Hubbard was an American author and the founder of the Church of Scientology. After establishing a career as a writer, becoming best known for his science fiction and fantasy stories, he developed a system called Dianetics. People who have a attained a certain level in Dianetics are said to be a Clear and a person named Sonya Bianca was just such a person, she claimed to have perfect recall.
Goblet of Truth Page 371 (445 of 679)
This love for yourselves as people of your kind (self-love) is not the same as ego-love (egoism) which is as a vice (pathological craving/self-addiction) addicted in mercilessness (ruthlessness) to its own desires (urges/drives/penchants);
The Meier information talks about a true self-love which is the unfolding (evolution) of the inner world (consciousness), the world of thoughts and feelings. In the article called In_Praise_of_Love,_Truth_and_Wisdom states that true love, truth and wisdom, can be obtained simply through the power of clear and reasonable thinking. When something is reasonable it is appropriate or fair; moderate. Reasonableness can refer to sound judgment; Something that is sensible.
Goblet of Truth LXV (65 of 679)
others still will increasingly turn to drugs which have been partially legalised through the irrationality of those in power because they are too stupid to recognise the danger of drug addiction and its consequences, or because they themselves are profiting from the drug trade.
The Might of Thoughts on page 42 talks about a man that is wealthy and has become addicted to expensive drinks and eventually becomes an alcoholic. Eventually this rich person would be willing to give half of his wealth to become free of his addiction. This man has pandered to his weakness and has given full expression to his addiction.
Might of Thoughts Page 42
His/Her wrong thinking, wrong wishes, hopes and actions, attract ever worsening circumstances and situations...
his/her wrong thoughts are only directed at the fulfillment of his/her vice.
Might of Thoughts Page 44
The thinking is imprisoned by he addiction and rotates around it - in an everlasting circle, which has no end. For the liberation from the vice, thinking would have to be reversed.
Addiction is a state characterized by compulsive engagement in rewarding stimuli, despite adverse consequences. The two properties that characterize all addictive stimuli are that they are (positively) reinforcing (i.e., they increase the likelihood that a person will seek repeated exposure to them) and intrinsically rewarding (i.e., they activate the brain's "reward pathways", and are therefore perceived as being something positive or desirable). The most important reward pathway in the brain is the mesolimbic dopamine system. This circuit (VTA-NAc) is a key detector of a rewarding stimulus. Under normal conditions, the circuit controls an individual's responses to natural rewards, such as food, sex, and social interactions, and is therefore an important determinant of motivation and incentive drive.
Might of Thoughts page 44
However, the rule is that the human being does not think consciously but largely unconsciously... Consequently, the human being is also almost always the unconscious cause of those circumstances in which he/she lives.
The unconscious is the part of the mind that is inaccessible to the conscious mind but that affects behavior and emotions... The unconscious mind (or the unconscious) consists of the processes in the mind that occur automatically and are not available to introspection...
So our unconscious has the ability to actually cause the circumstances in our lives. Empirical evidence suggests that unconscious phenomena include repressed feelings, automatic skills, subliminal perceptions, thoughts, habits, and automatic reactions, and possibly also complexes, hidden phobias and desires.
Might of Thoughts page 44
And furthermore, it is a fact that while the human beings wants the good and the positive, he/she constantly prevents exactly the achievement of the good and the positive, because, through wrongly steered thoughts, the human being beings maintains wishes, hopes, and yearnings which in no wise agree with the good and the positive, and therefore do not harmonize with them.
So we have hopes and yearnings that sometimes do not agree with the good and positive. A yearning is a feeling of intense longing for something. A persistent, often melancholy desire; a longing: a yearning for romance and adventure. So perhaps sometimes these kinds of yearnings are not healthy. We have to constantly be looking at our own thoughts and evaluating them. Here is a good video that talks about the unconsciousness Pure Science Specials - Automatic Brain: The Magic of the Unconscious Mind
Might of Thoughts page 52 The Law of Harmony
As a rule, suffering is always an effect of some form of wrong thinking if the suffering related to negative, bad or evil outcomes. In this form, incidents of suffering are indicators that the law of harmony is disregarded and broken and that one is there not living according to the law of BEING, which is directed at progress, love, peace, knowledge wisdom, joy and true inner freedom.
Might of Thoughts page 52 Purification
This means that everything which is useless, wrong and unclean must be burnt out and eliminated from the thoughts... All impurities must first be burnt out of it. And before a human beings Wesen can be pure and luminous, it must also first be cleansed of all impurity.
Might of Thoughts page 52 Self created suffering
Self-created suffering is only ended when the human being - in his/her thoughts - are pure, enlightened and neutral postive equalised, and his/her thoughts - is pure, enlightened and neutral-positive-equalised, and his/her thoughts can come to fruition in this form through their might.
So it is quite clear, that if the positive and the negative part of ‹a thing› is equalised, then harmony exists. Wrong thoughts result in self-created suffering.
Might of Thoughts page 58
Ones own thoughts can be controlled and maintained along the right paths, so that at least inner freedom and harmony, and so forth, is obtained or acquired...
Some of the Synonyms for harmony include concord, unity, peace, amity, friendship. So if we have an inner harmony its a good possibility that we are maintaining the neutral postive thinking. Something which is neutral is said to be not helping or supporting either side in a conflict, disagreement, etc.; impartial. Billy talks about neutral as being balanced between the negative and the positive.
with Billy 1988
The self-control one possesses must be self-evident and can only be gained through arduous self-scrutiny, where every iota of one's thoughts is kept completely safe and under control, regardless of outside influences. One must not allow even the minutest negative vibration of thought and emotion to radiate or become noticeable to others in any way. A totally neutral, unbiased attitude towards all forms of life at all times must be achieved, which, ultimately, becomes one's second nature...
Arduous means requiring great exertion; laborious; difficult: So controlling our thoughts and making sure that they are neutral positive takes some level of effort.
Might of Thoughts page 72
The term cognition is a collective term for all processes, manifestations and structures which are associated with the conscious and unconscious perception of anything.
One of the important things to take notice of here is that we perceive things in an unconscious manner. Preconscious processes there play a very important role.Might of Thoughts page 72
In psychoanalysis, preconscious are the thoughts which are unconscious at the particular moment in question, but which are not repressed and are therefore available for recall and easily 'capable of becoming conscious'
Might of Thoughts page 74
Unconscious processes of perception run their course, through which the psyche is likewise influenced and directed.
Might of Thoughts page 74
Unconscious thought processes create unconscious feelings.
Stigmatization and delusional visions can be caused by unconscious processes. Stigmatization -- The Wounds of Christ seem to also in part by caused by unconscious phenomenon. The stigmatization phenomenon, during which the wounds of Christ materialize as bleeding wounds on the back and palms of the persons' hands, as well as their loins, insteps, possibly also on their forehead, the head (from the crown of thorns) or on their backs (traces from flagellations), is a form of religious-sectarian manifestations of self-flagellation based on a psychogenic effect.
Unconscious thoughts and feelings can determine if we become healthy or sick.
Might of Thoughts page 80
But the reason that psychically disturbed human beings of all kinds only see black in black and, therefore, negatively, is that their perceptional ability is very limited, whereby the world of thoughts also inevitablely falls prey to a limitation, and is only able to move in a narrow framework, and indeed in a framework which only allows the limited and negative perceptions. The thoughts are thereby forced into a cycle in which the same thoughts and themes of thoughts appear again and again, whereby a rotation of the thoughts is practically called forth. And once such a rotation has begun to operate then the human being who is controlled by it is is barely able to free himself/herself from it any more...
Might of Thoughts page 82
So, emotions are therefore able to create thoughts throught which particular feelings are created
Might of Thoughts page 82
Emotions can create thoughts and thoughts can create feelings.
So when emotions are creating thoughts another kind of cycle starts. Unconscious thinking is especially dangerous for the psyche. So our cognitive process entails much more complexity than just conscious thinking.
Emotion is, in everyday speech, a person's state of feeling in the sense of an affect. Scientific discourse has drifted to other meanings and there is no consensus on a definition. This is a huge statement because science has not even yet been able to define emotions. The physiology of emotion is closely linked to arousal of the nervous system. The Meier information says that emotions are lightning fast reactions to some sort of factor in the body or the environment. Both Anger and Rage are considered emotions. Billy has several very interesting articles on anger.
Might of Thoughts page 84
Emotions arise so quickly that they are noticable before we detect them.
Might of Thoughts page 84
Emotions cannot be steered.
Might of Thoughts page 86
Emotions are reflexive, spontaneous manifestations, while feelings, in every case, emerge slowly and are formed by the world of thoughts.
Might of Thoughts page 90
There are still many other effects which likewise have important significance in regard to unconscious cognitive processing:
Might of Thoughts page 92
Unconscious, subliminal perceptions are absolutely present with every human being.
One of Billy's articles on anger is called Anger and Rage. Billy says that anger and rage are not the same thing. If you try to fight rage with rage then it can lead to very devastating results.
Anger and Rage Article
Due to ununderstanding, popularly, anger and rage are often put on the same level as each other, however, it thereby concerns two fundamentally different factors, which also have different manifestations and effects.
During the emergence of the rage the thoughts and their feelings get out of control and the emotions are allowed to run free. Perhaps, that is one difference between rage and anger. In rage perhaps the emotions do run free. Rage then must be met with love and feeling for others as well as with kind-heartedness, dignity and peaceableness. An adequate high regard for the rights of the fellow human being can help to combat anger. Rage is sometimes defined as violent, uncontrollable anger. The non-use of the intellect can lead to rage.
Anger and Rage Article
By definition, anger is a violent, uncontained outburst - leading right up to a fury - of uncontrolled, wild thoughts and their feelings as well as the emotions.
Anger and Rage Article
Exactly through anger and rage the human being loses one of his/her best, and naturally given abilities; namely his/her healthy discernment.
Here is another great article about Anger it is called Anger Harms the Liver by Mariann Uehlinger Mondria, Switzerland . Protecting our psyche by neither retreating into one's shell nor shouting in anger isn’t easy at all. The trigger for our anger is within ourselves. The degenerated negative frequencies which we send out by our mental block, when angrily shouting, are really toxic for our cells. Our hepatocytes (liver cells) are affected in such a way that they degenerate and cancer cells are built. There is a word that sometimes defines those that are angry. Intransigence means refusing to compromise or agree; inflexibility and sometimes is associated with anger. We want to prevent anger, meaning neither swallowing it nor letting it out, but not allowing it to develop at all – as is right and proper for a real human being.
Might of Thoughts page 82
Emotions are reactions
Might of Thoughts page 82
Emotions are able to create thoughts
Might of Thoughts page 82
Feelings occur because of thoughts
Might of Thoughts page 84
Emotions arise spontanously and are hard to bring under control by thoughts.
Examples of states of excitation include crying and laughter
Might of Thoughts page 92
Therefore, in each case, the particular unconscious state very strongly determines the emergence, and the kind and wise as well as the intensity, of the feelings which are called forth and formed through conscious and unconscious thoughts.
The unconscious mind (or the unconscious) consists of the processes in the mind that occur automatically and are not available to introspection, and include thought processes, memory, affect, and motivation. When something is automatic it is working by itself with little or no direct human control. Intropspection is the examination or observation of one's own mental and emotional processes. So unfortunately we cannot have introspection on the unconscious mind; however, I think it might be helpful to be aware that there are automatic processes that go on in terms of our thoughts. It is also important to be aware that these unconscious thoughts can be extremely powerful.
Unconscious or conscious negative thinking produces the flattening of feelings that lead to depressions. (Page 102)
Might of Thoughts Page 102
Depressions are based on acquired flattened feelings, which unambiguously, and without any doubt, are determined by a conscious or unsconscious negative thinking. If negative thinking occurs, and stabilises or deepens, then it is unavoidable, and there is no chance that positive thinking can still come about.
Positive thoughts must be learnt, and indeed by every human being, because they are not simply given to anyone.
Depression is a state of low mood and aversion to activity that can affect a person's thoughts, behavior, feelings. I speculate that the flattening of feelings means the removal of any highs.
Strong thoughts which are imprinted with feelings have, for the human beings who live with them, a profound and existential significance , because such structures of thought are not seldom extremely stubborn and can only be influenced with great difficulty.
With them, unconscious thoughts and feelings generate unconscious or conscious psychical or physical reactions,
of Mankind Unconsciousness
The Unconscious can be comparatively understood as something like say a ‘secretary’ or clerical assistant, coming before the Consciousness in the chain of information processing. Which autonomously takes in and sorts incoming Impulses and Perceptions i.e. facts. After or post which it provides the ‘preprocessing’ in a corresponding form, before the whole is then consequentially passed on to the conscious-of-itself material-consciousness.
Its interesting that science has not come to agreement to actually what thought is. Strong thoughts that are imprinted with feelings have, for the human beings who live with them, a profound and existential significance, because such structures of thought are seldom extremely stubborn, and can only be influenced with great difficulty.
Structure means the arrangement of and relations between the parts or elements of something complex.
I really thought it was interesting the way that Billy used the word structures of thoughts. A structure is an arrangement and organization of interrelated elements in a material object or system. These structures can have relationships like the one to many relationship.
Movie on Stigmata - Stigmata: Wounds Of Mystery TV Documentary This movie really shows the incredible power of the human mind. Because these wounds are actually self inflicted unconscious wounds. One case is a man named Georgio Bon Giovanni from Italy. Who actually has wounds that take on the shape of a cross that appear on his forehead. Its interesting that his wounds appeared first when he was visiting a shrine in Fatima Portugal in 1989. He actually weeps tears of blood and often bleeds once a week.
The most shocking case is the woman called Teresa Neumann who lived in the village of Konnersreuth in Bavaria, Germany. You can actually see the blood flowing from this womans eyes as she sits in her bed in a trace. This is a true testimony to the incredible power of the human mind. Teresa would bleed on most Fridays. She is said to have survived for years only on the little wafers used in communion and sometimes she would speak in the ancient Aramaic.

Feelings represent primary processes in the carrying out of life, which is why they must not be stifled or eliminated in any form... They must never be foreced with Gewalt, or be fought and elimated. But the difference between feelings and emotion is easy to recognise for every human being if he/she directs his/her attention to them: emotions, namely, come suddenly like lightning, surging, exciting and uncontrollable, whereby they are often only of short duration. However, feelings manifest slowly and then are associated witha preceding thought-process, quite in contrast to emotions, which are not preceded by thought-process, quite in contrast to emotions, which are not preceeded by any thoughts.

Exclusively conscious or unconscious thinking is responsible for the creation of feelings.
One of the biggest problems that we face is problem-causing thoughts that function somewhat automatically. We tend to narrow our frame of reference and focus on these thoughts over and over again. So we need to learn to break that cycle of automatic thought and recognize when we fall pray to these thoughts which generate feelings that harm our minds. Billy puts in this way on page 120 of the Might of Thoughts.
Might of Thoughts page 112
Manipulation of natural state of the thoughts and feelings must never be attempted by thinking and feeling purely positive.
Might of Thoughts page 120
Problem-causing thoughts- and the evaluations and feelings which arise from them - which are unconsciously tended and nurtured, and which operate automatically and throw the psyche into turmoil, It is these automatic thoughts which are the crucial point, because it is through them that the feelings are disturbed and thereby also the psyche.
So one thing that you can do is check when your feelings are getting disturbed. Because these disturbing feelings are a sign that you have entered into a kind of thinking that is not good for the psyche. Each time these repeating thoughts move through the mind they generate more disturbing feelings. So we have to break this pattern of uncontrolled automatic thoughts. This can be done thought meditation, focusing on something else, listening to music and going out into nature.
These problem causing thoughts tend to become a bad habit that we repeat over and over again. These thoughts create a distortion of reality and can lead to depression. We can start thinking about these problems unconsciously. We all have problems in our life that can generate this kind of automatic unconscious thinking. We need to examine which conscious or unconscious attitudes are causing our behavoir. This is challenging because the conscious or unconscious ideals are not always immediately recognized. Sometimes it can be helpful to even create a diary of thoughts and feelings. Some of these unconscious thoughts can actually move to the conscious mind. We need to develop a kind of systematic self-observation.
These problematic thoughts can lead to distortions of reality. However, as a rule, these problematic thoughts and feelings are mostly of an unconscious nature.

The circumstances from which suffering grows in the human being are the product of the might of his/her thoughts and thereby also the product of his/her own mental disharmony...
Harmony is a relationship characterized by a lack of conflict or by agreement, as of opinion or interest. A relationship in which various components exist together without destroying one another: An orderly or pleasing combination of elements in a whole: Harmony of thoughts and feelings leads to to joy and enjoyment. We should stop rebelling against circumstances that are against one's own views. Difficult circumstances can lead us to discover hidden powers in ourselves
Might of Thoughts page 142
Lower thoughts form lower feelings, lower habits and lower circumstances, such as alcoholism, hate, afflication, resentment, sorrow, grief, bitterness, errors of judgment, and so forth - and many kinds of suffering. If one's thoughts are destructive, then they crystallise into confusing and exhausting habits and circumstances, which when the human being is afflicted by them is no longer able to control.
When something begins to crystallise it becomes more definite and clear. When something starts to crystallise it is made free from confusion or ambiguity. So destructive or healthy thoughts can crystallise into negative or positive circumstances. This process can occur unconsciously, and the circumstances arize and harden into failure.Health and Thoughts
Consciousness determines its own health in intelligent and rational form, by means of the might of its thoughts. But it furthermore also extensively determines the health of the body or its decline.
Might of Thoughts page 150
The body which - as a gentle and plastic instrument - immediately reacts to the kind of thoughts which the human being tends and nurtures. This is the reason why the human being should not allow habitual thinking to take upper hand to much.
