Training en advies in creatief denken en creativiteit

I love this youTube "article" by this neuroscientist who experienced part of her brain under attack from a massive stroke, and I am very very pleased with her acknowledgement of the state of "mind" her brother struggled with in his bipolar and/or schitzo-affective state. A state that she herself was able to experience, mentioning an overwhelming grace she received, and compared it to a state of Nirvana. I am bipolar and experience that same state almost constantly. NOW, more work has been accomplished that describes her and my nirvana and, or course, many many others, as well. Check the youTube articles that describe :- A). The breakdown of the ego, in preference to the "real-self" or the other self, the SOUL. B). SO, humanity evolves. Science and spirituality are coming closer together. Our understanding of the genius contained within mental illness is being addressed. We certainly look back to Beethoven and Mozart, and many current personalities to see a fine line between mental illness and genius. We are beginning to know who we are, as individuals, and as a humanity this has to be a positive step. Our psyche doctors in the West are right now considering "spiritual emergence" as a condition worthy of their intellectual psyche training. Goo THAT "spiritual emergence". check out it's flavours and run them through your own reasoning. In the meantime, consider your own societal opinions (and your dominant left brain attitudes and see if you have a little room for some compassion with a touch less stigma towards bi-polar, and all mental illness. We are human, maybe even more so, without that illusory EGO. That's for you my sweet Lozka. Jermy will love that. I spoke with you in that psyche ward many years ago. I reckon you'd remember that, I reckon. I love you SO much. I can still feel your arms around me. XOX Namaste by jeggsey Jul 31
