In Spiritual things, self-analysis will not only fail to show us the reality, it will even create Spiritual paralysis.
Real Seeing and Understanding Comes Only from God’s Illumination.
As Light Shines, we just Naturally See.
We therefore do not need to ask ourselves questions, all we need to do is to Ask God to Causes His Light to Shine in us, His Word to Shine in us,
For the Word of God is Living and Most Effective;
It is sharper than any two-edged sword and Pierces even to Dividing between soul and spirit, between joints and marrow.
As soon as the Word of God enters, you can immediately Perceive what is soulish from what is Spiritual.
