Mystical delusions - must not be mistaken for true inspiration

There are people who claim to be inspired by heaven. And how does this inspiration manifest? They gesticulate, roll their eyes around, give incoherent speeches, or else they remain frozen for hours in a posture of simulated ecstasy. Well, the truth is, they are unbalanced, ill, as is proven by the rest of their behaviour. Even if people talk about heaven, about the Holy Spirit, angels and archangels, the reality is that among those who claim to be inspired by heaven there are many who are sick. Their wish to communicate with the divine world was no doubt sincere, but due to a lack of discipline and inner work they have only been able to connect with the subterranean regions of the astral plane. Of course, they also receive messages and orders, but of a kind they would do well not to trust. You should learn to tell the difference between inspiration and certain forms of insanity. Those who are truly in touch with heaven can only receive currents of light, harmony and peace.
