Happiness coexists with despair

The wise ageless one within. It’s there…aching to emerge. *** Happiness can coexist with despair. It really can. We need to stop having such narrow view of what happiness is. The clearer we get, in fact, the more this sort of thing occurs. When we are clear we can feel anything on the emotional spectrum […]

THIS

If I were foolish enough to give you a system and if you were foolish enough to follow it, you would merely be copying, imitating, conforming, accepting, and when you do that you have set up in yourself the authority of another and hence there is conflict between you and that authority. You feel you must do such and such a thing because you have been told to do it and yet you are incapable of doing it. You have your own particular inclinations, tendencies and pressures which conflict with the system you think you ought to follow and therefore there is a contradiction. So you will lead a double life between the ideology of the system and the actuality of your daily existence. In trying to conform to the ideology, you suppress yourself – whereas what is actually true is not the ideology but what you are. If you try to study yourself according to another you will always remain a second-hand human being. …

What will it take to wake up these hacks?

As I heal and come to more deeply understand and learn about exactly what happened to my brain on psych drugs I am devastated again and again. We are committing crimes of abuse, violence and harm every time we tell people they must be on psych drugs and offer them no options… The more I am healed from the brain injury the psych drugs incurred, the deeper is the revelation of ignorance and insanity within psychiatry. I may no longer be enraged because I realize the profound ignorance and fear that motivates psychiatry, but I’m more and more dismayed…

Forms of dissociation are common to all human beings

Popular fantasy realities (like multiple dimensions and starseeds and lightworkers etc) are forms of dissociation…dissociation is a way to cope with trauma.

Happy Christmas, winter solstice and end of year

Whether or not you celebrate this particular day, may the end of this year be good.

Consider the possibility that sensitive folks are not mentally ill

Included are Facebook status updates from the last few days. They’ve all been inspired by the #MedicatedAndMighty hashtag on Twitter. See too: No, I was not #MedicatedAndMighty but I sure as heck was medicated

Consider the possibility that sensitive folks are not mentally ill. — “It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a sick society.” – Krishnamurti — Who are the really sick ones in society? Those who pretend we are not all connected. Those who imagine they are not part of the sickness that impacts every human being. …

Everyone is mentally ill

I think that instead of denying mental illness at the individual level (for some good reasons like lack of lab work indicating any sort of markers of any actual disease) it’s time to recognize that everyone is mentally ill…and some of those most impacted are psychiatrists and other officials of the state who harm those of us who are more conscious…not less. Our society and world is sick…the individuals who are most sensitive are canaries in the coal mine. We all need help and we all need healing. Everyone on the planet needs to come to consciousness should we wish to save our species as well as a lot of others too.
