CREATIVE INSANITY

“In a 1987 study, Dr. Nancy Andreason of the University of Iowa found that a sample of creative writers had significantly higher levels of bipolar disorder than a control group of similar intelligence levels.”

My personal observation of is that the QUACKS who call themselves “doctors of western  psychological medicine” do not have ANY CLUE about the spiritual nature of human beings and life forms in general.  They are so simple-minded and psychically crippled that they think the ONLY UNIVERSE is the physical universe.  They actually think that YOU are a BODY and that YOUR THOUGHTS are coming from a ten pound PIECE OF MEAT called a brain!  The simple truth that humans are spiritual beings, who animate the physical form of a body, has been demonstrated a hundred billion times throughout thousands to generations!  When a human dies, the spiritual being departs from the body!  If you aren’t aware of this phenomenon, please get yourself educated.  Just GOOGLE “Reincarnation” and “Out-of-Body-Experience”.  Read a few of the hundreds of  books about these subjects written by people who are not  “medical scientists” — the self-appointed priests of the physical universe.

Of course artists and any other normal, creative person could not possibly be “sane”!  “Sanity” is agreement with “reality”, which the priests of Western medicine define as “the physical universe”.  If you are in utter, unimaginative agreement with the physical universe you cannot possibly be an artist!  Artists are the creators of universes.

Artists are the empathetic makers of aesthetic realities: love, passion, truth, justice, honesty and equanimity are the domain of the artist and the spiritual being.  How can an artist endure existence in a universe made only of cold, brutal forces — devoid of compassion and spirit — without being “insane”?   If artists are “insane”, then I am proud and privileged to be considered one of them!   — Lawrence R.
