Ive noticed a number of people (here and other places on site) who have metioned that they feel God oriented when they are manic.
I liked and related to what you said, ray ,about your manic state tending to make you dominate disscusions. I have this tendecy to.
I have found, strangely, that my depressions seem to drive me to a real connection. As I wander through the pain and listlessness, sometimes, (not as much as I'd like) the pain drives me to cry out for wisdom. I believe my attention is being required to something I NEED to look at and would rather not.
In my desperation, I look, seek, knock, talk and read till the revelation is given,
Not complete, but as much as I am ready to handle.
Peeling away the layers of sickness in a soul is not a pretty site.
I wouldnt even consider doing it if the pain did not drive me.
Id rather forget it.
Thankfully God is faithful in His promise to finish the work He has begun.
When Im manic I do more boring things like clean the house :)
I dont love my dpression (I think )but in my experience it is occasionally more spiritaully productive than mania
peace to all
