The Inner Paul
The Inner Paul is the center of our deepest emotions.
In Paul, there is a strong creative drive, and an expression of our most
passionate feelings and impulses. It is in Paul we find our most
intimate interpersonal relationships, and give voice to the almost inexpressible
experiences of the self. The Paul is focused and goal oriented, capable
of an incredible singularity of purpose and drive to succeed. Paul
is the most active and energetic state of the inner Beatles, as he translates
all emotion into purposeful action. And yet, in Paul there is an
absence of any deeper thought. Like the Inner Ringo, the Paul is
unable to see the larger issues. So focused on the details and particulars
of the moment, the big picture becomes obscured. The intellectual
and philosophical concerns of the George or John are absent, as Paul rejoices
in an almost pre-literate expression of the raw self. Paul is a creativity
without mastery, and a passion that is unchecked by fear or worry.
Still, this is a path on which we must travel in order to reach higher
enlightenment or even the Inner John. While the Inner John and Paul
certainly repel each other, they are nonetheless interdependent and linked.
It is through the negation of Paul that the John becomes possible.
In the Inner Paul, we find the rich emotions of the self. By embracing
our inner Paul, we may begin to give a voice to that within us which we
cannot express through rational contemplation or thought. The Paul
is our heart.
