Removing the Power Of Psychiatry Part Two




Dear Readers:


I thought I'd hold true to a little theme here. This is a comment I left on Pete's Blog - anti socially adept related to his post Ocean revelations.
It ignited the unraveled memories in my mind that not one single pill had ever got me through a single Door to the Majesty and Wonderment of my own life experience, or the magic of our world's miracle awaiting me on the other side. I know there were many times that The Monster (The front door) appeared like an insurmountable obstacle or an obtrusively precarious mountain perch in my whimsical journey. So this was my short and concise response to a fairly complex reality for so many.


Dear Pete:


Figured I would throw just a little scrap of thought your way for whatever its worth. Have you ever noticed that YESTERDAY and TOMORROW are much longer than TODAY!


Get off your butt, scream, yell, jump up and down like a kangaroo if you have too, even break down and cry if that's what you feel and need to do. But get past the heinous monster with every ounce of effort you can muster (That's what I always called the front door “Monster” when I was caught in the bleak dimly lit place of emotional isolation and gloom).


Go out to the beach and look at that sand as now in this very moment of breathing being, with one step following another this feeling a new as each grain of sand goes running through your toes and awaking your senses to the healing of your golden glistening imagination.


Run along the break water’s edge and be that frolicking child again with your heart pounding in your chest like the rare distant beating drum of native ceremony. Believe it or not; it's perfectly OK to be or feel whatever you want. It's even OK to have those so called normal people look at you like your mental constitution is not quite all there without those raspy whispers of judgment or self doubt ringing in your ear.


Tomorrow is just today unused; and yesterday has been washed away with the tides of change and time. Today is here; you get to choose what it means and what action you’re willing to take.


Isn't it said that usually what we miss most in this grand experiment of life; is what we didn't really try to experience with unbridled courage and fortitude; even from that fragile and fear filled place of pain, weakness, and suffering?
Yours Truly,
Stan

My daughter had me in ninja training, yesterday. I was armed with a broom handle for a sword, kneeling on the floor of the kitchen, in order to be the same height as her.

And do you know? It made more sense to me than anything any adult has ever asked/ordered/coerced me into doing. Probably because I felt part of the game, and not the object of it.

IMPORTANT:
Hey dude (yes I used the word dude) you are welcome to leave your "scraps of thought" on my blog anytime you feel the inspiration. Does this mean you're my mentor now? Spiritual director? Life coach? Do you prefer me to call you Teacher, Master, Rabbi, or what?
Oh, I forgot, from reading all of the other blogs I guess you prefer Big Brother being that you were recruited from the CIA and all to spy on us nutcases for the sake of national security. Are you the one who put the microphone behind my speaker grill?
Seriously though, yes seriously... thank you. And please don't be a stranger. - Peter
