If you have not I suggest reading battle field of the mind by Joyce Meyers and the Screwtape letters by CS Lewis .
Can you elaborate a bit as to why you are connecting those stories with what I wrote above?
the demonization of mental illness... not saying you have this but so that you can better understand those who have this battle going on within themselves
I had a very long battle( I now have victory and have overcome these things) with some issues due to the environment I was raised in and how my first husband conducted himself in our marriage. There are spiritual issues that are connected with abuse and certain acts that will attach negative spirits that whisper to a person. Now a mature sane person is a different story . But then again now they have a phenomenon called synthetic telepathy voice to skull technology with all the GWEN/Radio/Cell towers that can make people think they are hearing from a source. One reason KNOW thyself is so very important in out technological age
I have to say I am thankful I do not hear voices. At least, not like someone with schizophrenia whom report being screamed at, with very definable words and phrases. Often negatively based and paranoid.
I have wondered if they are just super psychics and are unable to balance their perception with their experiences in such a way that allows the individual to go forward.
Instead they often regress into panic, suicide, paranoia and isolation. Often unreasonable delusion that someone is 'out to get them'...
Seems the cure for that would be just not to care. Put it in the hands of fate and trust one is safe.
What else can one do?
To worry about said, is such a waste of time. Especially, being that these individuals are often incredibly bright and could utilize their Minds on more productive avenue of thought.
Telepathy is something different all together and can be learned if one is sensitive enough to spot it in the beginning.
