Question: Why does the Creator give me the sensation that my thoughts are my thoughts and my desires are my desires?
Answer: He does it in order for you to reveal that He is the source of all your thoughts and desires, both bad and good, all your actions, all that happens to you, around you, and outside of you.
While experiencing different thoughts, you consider them your own, but they are not yours.
Often a person catches himself realizing that these are not his thoughts. But where did they come from? Did they soar somewhere in the clouds and now landed in his head? Or he says: “No, I did not think so. Oh, I did not mean to say that.”
He in a way controls himself and sees that something wrong is happening with him. These are problems of our individuality and how we position ourselves.
