Coping With Bipolar
I am not religious. I am scientific-method trained, rationalist, analytical, virgo. However: This is Creation and we are Creators. Therefore anything that can be imagined, can manifest as reality. After comprehending that, everything and anything becomes possible.
It is surprising therefore that our experiences are not more chaotic. Mind therefore must be acting as a filter, to protect us from extreme and damaging experience, and revelation.
On this basis we can comprehend that we are currently experiencing a creche and assume this to necessarily be a natural phenomena of a benevolent reality.
"...students construct [their own] understandings of reality, and [realize] that objective reality is not knowable."
-p.10 of unesco declaration 2005 - 2015; "the decade of national curriculum" The federal national curriculum, encompasses the 40 chapters of agenda 21.
"Each time in history that a society has tried to materialize a utopic vision of a perfect world, it has produced the most brutal and criminal regimes." –Mario Vargas Llosa
In seeking stability, we hold onto false belief structures, about reality, about causality, about what is happening.
In contemporary pharmacology-funded psychological terms, to believe an artificial reality construct, even when offered proof of an actual reality, is termed 'Cognitive Dissonance' which is related to 'Disbelief Syndrome', both are similar conditions.
With 'bipolar disorder', even the slightest possible reaffirming sign is vastly exaggerated until its importance consumes all sense and reason, and our reaction becomes a rigid absolutism. Thus the we build our own destruction, unable to see ourselves from anothers point of view, unable to chill out, because the need to stir up a boring, routine, drone life, wasting in its futility, and the need for change, is so urgent.
Anxiety attack turns into vengeance; pre-emptive strike against people around, who are not enemies of the sufferer and who are surprised by the attack.
Bipolar Disorder is to be in fear and therefore at war. Which is why it is considered a psychotic and antisocial condition. To be target of such attack when one is totally supportive is very difficult to live with.
"Anger cannot be overcome by anger. If someone is angry with you, and you show anger in return, the result is a disaster. On the other hand, if you control your anger and show its opposite – love, compassion, tolerance and patience – not only will you remain peaceful, but the other person's anger will also diminish." -Dalai Lama
"Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned." -Buddha
With Bipolar, it is as though the sufferer is possessed, unable to control their reactions and prevent themself from acting in an aggressive-destructive manner.
