The Communion of the Holy Spirit by Watchman Nee

Mind (Me),Emotion (Myself) and Will ( I ) !

The manifestations of soul ( Me, Myself and I ) life can be separated generally into four divisions:

natural strength;
self -conceit, hard and unyielding towards God;
self-styled wisdom with many opinions and plans;
and emotional sensation sought in spiritual experiences.

Free from ‘You’!

Whatever is natural is not spiritual;

I wanna Feel!

Those who are soulish usually thrive on sensation. The Lord affords them the sense of His presence before they attain spirituality. They treat such a sensation as their supreme joy. When granted such a feeling, they picture themselves as making huge strides towards the peak of spiritual maturity. Yet the Lord alternately bestows and withdraws this touch that He might gradually train them to be weaned from sensation and walk by faith. These do not understand the way of the Lord, however, and conclude that their spiritual condition is highest when they can feel the Lord’s presence and lowest when they fail to do so.

Nothing Good in Me , Myself and I !

God is so adamant against the flesh and its every activity; yet the believer appears to reject only its bad features while clinging affectionately to the flesh itself.

God is not happy with “Me,Myself and I”!

However commendable and effective should anything be that is done in his own strength the believer fails to draw down upon himself the approval of God. God’s pleasure or displeasure is not founded upon the principle of good and evil. Rather, God traces the source of all things. An action may be quite correct, yet God inquires, what is its origin?

Poor Christians!

Because the carnal Christians are greatly talented-active in thought, rich in emotion-they readily arouse people’s interest and stir the latter’s hearts. Consequently, soulish Christians usually possess magnetic personalities. They can quickly win the acclamation of the common people. Yet the fact remains that they actually are lacking in spiritual power. They do not contain the living flow of the power of the Holy Spirit. What they have is of their own. People are aware that they possess something, but this something does not impart spiritual vitality to others. They appear to be quite rich; they are really quite poor.
