Being who we are being a blessing and a curse, it's difficult to assess what's right and wrong in the way we go about things. This being the case, it's only the essence of our being that knows who we are and what we should be doing about it. Whatever anyone else says about the way we should be, they are not being us - they are being themselves.
Evolution is a natural process of nature, however it happens (er -room for argument). Yeah, I can claim every label in the mental illness handbook. Depressive? Sometimes. Bipolar? Difficult to say, depends if I'm up or down. Schizophrenic? A matter of medical opinion. Psychic? That's not on the list of mental illnesses, but lumps in with witches and crazy people. Since learning that we exist on multiple dimensional levels, I find it very difficult - sometimes impossible - to shut off the access routes of those levels. So a lot of the time, I don't know where I am. Or who I'm talking to.
Being me is a complicated process. My life has Happiness plastered all over it, but am I grateful? Not all the time. I guess I'm learning to balance love and fear in the course of my own evolution, which some might say is a waste of time as it involves a lot of thinking. My theory is that 'mental illness' has become a term to coin a phrase that fits the professionals, bootleggers and Powers that Be, who sure don't want anyone evolving around here. Whatever we go through, we learn from, and whatever we learn helps us to become the beings we want to be.
Where there's love, there's freedom. Where there's fear, there's pain. And where there's pain there's always someone else to blame, that's just human nature. If we get above ourselves, we're cruising for a fall and someone else is inevitably going to be responsible. So if we can learn to love without fear, in the course of being ourselves, we should be getting somewhere, even if we don't know where it is. For more on that, check out the Uncertainty Principle. It's very important to consider ourselves as particle, whichever wave we ride.
