Topic: The Inner Person (09/09/10)

TITLE: The Inner Person
By Vicki GRECH


So, just who is the inner person? Where does he or she come from? How can we get in touch with this inner person dwelling deep in our hearts, minds and souls? A marvel of the human form, God’s beautiful and wonder full design of genius when He created human beings. Imagine, to (2) merge the inner and the outer self in one and yet remain separate identities!

Many of us as I have even experienced myself are actually quite frightened by this inner person that occasionally may rise up to our consciousness to have a quiet word with us. Most times, this inner person will rise in times of duress. I believe this is God’s way of channelling His help to us through this inner person who always hears God even when we don’t! It has been my experience that when this happens to people it will actually begin to have some sort-of melt-down effect on one’s entire being as they struggle to understand the message this inner person is carrying.

Communicating with this inner person however; is more-so a process than an event. We do not always reflect our true self’s, our superficial personality is mostly on the front-line as a type of defence and protection system we use to guard ourselves against human predators. Very rarely will people ever experience one another’s inner person (the true self), as it is usually imprisoned by various conditions we have experienced during our lives. For many of us are too afraid to reveal our inner person to anyone but those closest to us. I believe this is the greatest tragedy of society. To think we have to hide behind a mask on a daily basis just to avoid being preyed upon by those who would sought to exploit and abuse us.

Knowledge is power, when we have no power we are vulnerable, feeling vulnerable creates a heightened sensation of fear. In turn, fear creates anxiety, and when severe enough will trigger abnormal behaviour in one form or another. Hence, this is seen to be a mental disorder, such as Bi-Polar, Personality Disorder etc., We educate our children at an academic level so they can function in society as well adjusted and happy adults ultimately. However; sadly, Spiritual Education is an imperative and essential balance that rights the scale of humanity that is severely lacking. It is a well known fact that everything in life requires balance. I wonder sometimes, how it is, not too many conventional educators can see the essential ingredient lacking in children today that helps greatly in keeping them on the rails “so 2 speak” with God.

Only Spiritual Education from an early age can prevent many of today’s mental disorders as people struggle to understand the inner person, the one connected to God “so 2 speak” with them “a-loan” for the time they need His pre-sense. This pre-sense of the Holy Spirit that rises within the human form at the deepest level, (the inner person, our soul), 2 be with us through the Holy Spirit to help us through the darkest days of our life. Due to a lack of Spiritual Education few ever realize their so-called melt-down was simply a Spiritual Event triggered by the inner self that was not seen and the message went unheard.

Only quality Spiritual (not religious), Education will free many of today’s society, including children of so-called mental disorders that I believe are little more than Spiritual Events of the inner person gone horribly wrong through gross misunderstanding of the human mind, heart and soul. In addition to this, sadly, the greatest book on healing ever written has been largely ignored by conventional Teachers, Counsellors, Psychologists, Psychiatrists and so on, and much to the detriment of the Student and/or patient.

This Article is based on an extract from true stories, in other words; the theory has been proven that many mental disorders are little more than Spiritual Events mistaken for impairment of the mind. These so-called impairments do not need pills, they need The Word that feeds the soul as God said it does. Healing from the Bible has been proven time and time again and yet still the cure is largely ignored to balance the inner person that lives within us all for God’s purpose to reach and teach in times of need.

The use of the number 2 kind of threw me when I first started reading your story, but as I progressed I understood. I agree with your last phrase totally. We are Spiritual beings and if that is broken than many mental disorders. AMEN!

You have some great points. I did have a hard time reading your piece, though. There were some long sentences, if broken by a comma, might have been easier to read. I also was thrown by your 2 and little things like wonderful being two words. I'd hate to have people skip over your message because of these little things. You really have a sense of passion about what you are saying and I appreciate your sharing your ideas with me. Keep writing, only you can tell your story.

A very thoughtful piece with some very good points. You share your strong convictions well and challenge your readers.

I agree with you - we should never hide behind a mask. We should always be who we really are, and can only do that by letting the Holy Spirit control us. Thank you for the food for thought.
