People diagnosed by medical professionals as “suffering” from conditions such as dementia, mental illness, mental retardation, autism, and other cognitive impairments, may on the surface, seem unable to comprehend communication from the outside world. This idea is especially disturbing for loved ones to accept. I feel this is a false assumption. When one is speaking to a person with any kind of mental or cognitive impairment, their soul will receive and correctly interpret the information that you are communicating to them. This process is facilitated, and messages are received through the subconscious mind.
The person who first inspired me to write many years ago, asked me to assist him with a project that had little meaning to me at the time. This person lives with a difficult mental impairment. I have known this person for more than eight years. He possesses a gentle soul with generous nature. My wish for him is to not only function in society, but to experience life in a meaningful way. I know the limitations of his illness have been extremely frustrating to him.
The project I assisted him with (many years ago) focused on Biblical teachings. He asked me to explore his ideas and turned them into something practical. I took the ideas contained in his notes and wrote over a hundred full pages of Christian spiritual lessons involving kindness, personal relationships, leadership, visions and other topics. The lessons I came up with have been covered by hundreds of other Christian authors.
I managed to turn his project into something different from what he originally intended it to be. I revised his ideas and turned them into practical lessons for living. My metaphysical writings evolved out of this early work.
Although my friend is not fully conscious in his understanding of the things I tell him, I informed him that his ideas have, in fact, entered the world and will hopefully make a difference in the lives of others. I told him that although he may never be acknowledged for his effort, I reassured him that his message will continue on through my writings and work. I know that his subconscious mind understood my words. I believe he has found a sense of satisfaction in knowing he has contributed something worthwhile for the betterment of society. In the meantime, he continues to perfect his original idea for the project. When one chapter is completed, we go on to the next. Our Greater-Self (Higher Power) is a creative Being involved in a never-ending process of understanding its own nature through its creations.
