Consciousness, art, and psychiatry

Jon Rappoport connecting the dots … including the explosive ones like Dr. Frances, the lead psychiatrist author of the DSM-IV publicly admitting it’s all B.S. … and Dr. Russell Barkley, professor of psychiatry and neurology at U. Mass Medical Center admitting that ADHD (and by extension of his own logic — the entire field of psychiatry) is completely bogus. This is a long, richly formatted article but worth the read for anyone who’s ever wanted to create art and/or wondered if they’re “crazy.”

    Gotta love being telepathically connected so that when you send out a strong message, it gets heard. Miss Bruno heard me today, as I had seen this post this morning from Jon Rappoport and intended to post it, but had other things at the time to tend to. So it wasn’t a surprise when she posted it for me, and as she shares, “This is a long, richly formatted article, but worth the read for anyone who’s ever wanted to create art and/or wondered if they’re ‘crazy’.” Being an artist since birth and having wondered the latter, this spoke to that voice I used to hear. My favorite part that Jon shares in mirror to what I have personally discovered through my “crazy” πŸ˜‰ life is this: “The first artist was the first alchemist.

    So it is with all art. You can transmute your own past, your own experience, your own knowledge, your own emotions into works of imagination.

    Art is a spiritual path.

    From its dynamic perspective, everything that has ever happened to you can take on absolutely new meaning.

    This also happens to be the goal of all therapies.

    But with art, the goal is fulfilled.

    It is no exaggeration to say that the artist can reinvent his past.

    Civilizations rise and fall, come and go, and their fate is decided by untold millions of people who refrain from taking the path of the artist.

    Ordinary life as we know it doesn’t resolve into a grand solution. It never has. Through alchemical persuasion, however, it can. And that alchemy is art.” There’s a lot of insightfully woven info in his post to explore when you have some time.

    As one who holds educational degrees in Art and Psychology….It has long been my stance that just when I thought the art department was a wee bit crazy albeit pushing boundaries, redefining interpretations of reality and in some ways just plain rebelling the status quo…..enter the psych dept to get a whole new level of bizarro leading others on a path from sunny fields into the brambles, themselves the first to become entrapped and ensnared by their own dogma.

    It really was not too difficult to remove the scars of the latter by expression in the former…Art in it’s truest form can heal, right down to the molecular levels. Psychiatrists prescribe drugs that cause destruction to the same degree. The mind is never separate from the soul or the body, the three make up one of the miraculous trinities that surround us all. Art and music are the templates of Creation itself and contain all aspects of the original hologram. But once out-ed, what will we as a society DO with them all?
