Do you know what "thought containers"
Well, it is a term I have just come up with.
In the body of the Padgett
messages there is mentioned that thoughts are things. It is
a statement that surprises many. In fact, many do not know what
to think of this: Do thoughts crystallize? Do they float in the
air like droplets of mist?
Today I intend to write you a message in order to give you an
idea of what this expression means. It cannot be a very accurate
message, because once again I will take recourse to analogies for
describing the unknown. But it will possibly help you to understand
a little bit of what up to now has been a mystery to you.
Imagine thoughts as objects of programming. I will help myself
to your limited knowledge of object-oriented programming. So,
a thought is like an object. A programming object may contain a lot of
different things: Constants, variables, member functions, other
objects, etc. And the same is true for thought containers. In the
same fashion they contain thoughts, but additionally also "pointers",
which point to certain addresses [registers?]. Those addresses are
not necessarily the individuals that have created or held those
thoughts, but rather some specific condition, a specific development
- soul development, I mean, because the mental development (I am
not speaking of intelligence or knowledge, but the quality of thoughts
relative to a guideline that is running though all existence: that
is to say, Love) depends on the development of the soul. Although
the material mind does not form part of the soul, it is the product
of the spirit body, which in turn depends, in its composition and
aspect, on the soul.
When using words such as "to point" and "address,"
you may understand that we are speaking of space. But don't make
a mistake. I am not speaking of a physical space. I will give you
an example: On earth, you can find souls of almost all grades of
development, from the almost celestial (or even truly celestial)
soul to the infernal soul, that is to say, a negative development,
an "involution" of the pristine soul. If the pointers
of the thought containers indicate their field of influence, you can
also imagine that there are all sorts of created thoughts "floating
in the air" on earth. But in the spiritual sense, they exist
in very different levels of being, and therefore, not all of them
are accessible for everybody.
The law of attraction determines that certain soul conditions
attract certain kind of thoughts. In fact, the soul condition determines
the "spiritual level" where the soul lives, and therefore,
it also determines its respective environment of thoughts.
We may access thoughts consciously. In the spirit world we constantly
do this to obtain information: this way, together with a "verbal
content" we may obtain visual, acoustic, and emotional information,
etc. Just imagine thought containers as holding also integrated
lists of key words, with whose help we may find what we are looking
But what happens in any event is that these thought containers
influence us, they "invade" us, if we are within their
scope of action. This is the influence they exercise upon us.
Therefore, the poor people in the hells suffer from a bombardment
of thoughts that correspond to their level of development - and
that is horrible. On the other hand, the blissful souls in the high
spheres of the spirit world (or the mortals of a high soul development)
enjoy a positive influence. When we say that "we surround you
with our love," we mean that there are our positive thoughts
which influence your soul, because you have succeeded in penetrating
into those spiritual spheres where these kind of thoughts exercise
Forgiveness is forgetfulness. You have read this. We have not
really forgotten, but that sort of negative thought that had held
us submerged in a deplorable condition, no longer affects us; that
is to say: We have been able to get out of their sphere of influence.
The souls living in the deep hells, as a matter of fact, do not
suffer so much from these thoughts, because they correspond exactly
to their condition. For them, it is normal to be invaded by this
class of ideas. The greatest cause of their suffering are rather
their feelings of envy, when they are able to observe how others
live in much better conditions. But the moment comes when their
own soul development progresses a little, and suddenly the influence
of those dark thoughts is felt as annoying, even as painful. Thoughts
are sticky things and they tend to exercise a "suction-like"
effect, like pulling backward or forward. When the soul is on its
way to progression, it feels this "suction" in different
directions, like "being torn apart" between two worlds,
and this hurts. Call it remorse. And it is exactly when this moment
comes that we go there to help, to speed up the process and to mitigate
the pain. Yes, you are right, we are like midwives who help to deliver
I could tell much more on the topic. But I believe that you have
understood what I wanted to communicate. Yes, although it is believed
that our spirit world is very similar to the earth, it is not so.
Certain things, such as the influence of thoughts, appear more tangible
in the beyond, creating more happiness - or more pain, depending
on where you happen to be.
Yes, I know. You find the message strange. But
take it as an allegory.
God bless you.
