Asking the Universe for help – I’m answered in a surprising and synchronistic way

I've had experiences in nonordinary states of consciousness where synchronicity is everywhere and everywhen.  It's as if my eyes are tuned to see it and every moment is infused with magic.  This can become overwhelming as it's as if there is too much energy entering the human nervous system than it can handle.  Unfortunately, we are tuned for the mundane and the medocre.  I asked the Universe for ...

Bipolar Mania and Psychosis Inside Out 5 – Thinking Differently

On and on it goes weaving webs of words spun from the fabric of that other dimension we rarely mention as its inner unseenness means gleaning the meaning of the invisible and that which is not divisible or catagorizable.  Maybe the meaning is to make meaning by having dialogue about the meanings?  Will this create meaning in a world that is rapidly losing its meaning to mechanization?  These other...

Bipolar Mania and Psychosis Inside Out 4 – Revisioning Mental Health

Lots to say about revisioning mental health.  There is inspiration and impulse to create a collective context through sharing and dialogue.  Perhaps this may change things from us residing in our monologues in isolation.  I feel we resonate.  The words that are sounds within us want to be uttered.  These states I feel are "trying" to move us towards worldcentricity and ecocentricity as opposed to ...

Please forgive the dull voice…likely depressed while reading these thoughts on psychosis and mania

Experimenting with ways of inviting conversation about revisioning mental health towards other perspectives of seeing and making meaning out of the experiences.  Can we integrate better through retrospective synergetic conversations?  Can we create meshwork of meaning that might create a web of immunity through a community of dialogue?  Why are we waiting to be "helped" by those who don't understa...

This sounds kind of like what it’s like to be in the state of Mania…at least sometimes

I've queued up two short clips at the end of Krishnamurti's talks.  Many times he talks about a "different way of living", a way of living that isn't according to our conditioning and programs.  To me, it sounds familiar to what it's like to be in mania.  It feels like living in the present moment and acting based on perception of what is right in front of me.  It's a state of being that feels new...

Bipolar Creativity – Celebrate Feeling Love and Sunsets

One of the benefits of having Bipolar Disorder is having access to creativity.  Over the years I've made a few super amateur songs and I feel inpired to share.  Being creative feeds my spirit in so many ways that consensus reality with all it's rules and structures cannot.  The creative state is playful and fun.  Time disappears.  Something new is brought into existence. https://youtu.be/SErmmj...

Hacking mania

I've had the sense that I am just a field of consciousness and however that state is, is how things are.  Perhaps that is just a symptom of "identifying" more as a field of energy or consciousness, and less as a physical body.  That being said, I'm learning a ton on the value of the physiology and neurobiology of things.  If I am a field of consciousness which is light and energy, how can I be mor...
