Be in Harmony with Yourself

Monday, September 18th, 2017

Fear … is an illusion.

Joy = Love – Fear

Love is not what you say …
Love is what you do.

Be in harmony with yourself.

A Gift of Love (click title to listen on You Tube). A beautiful 43 minutes of music and poetry.
Featuring a few voices that could be familiar to you …
A therapeutic nudge away from the vibration of fear … to one resonating in love.

Truth is Relative Poem

Monday, September 18th, 2017

Truth is Relative

Ah, the mind.
A favored tool of humankind.
It has the potential to be extremely expansive.
Equally, it can be used in an extremely constrictive way.
How does one know where on the continuum between constriction and optimal expansion their “tool” is being used?
An optimal question to ponder.
Objectivity here … a challenge.
None of us knows what we are unaware of.
Truth is Relative.
Relative to time.
Relative to person.
Relative to individual perspective, personal operating system so to speak.
The list goes on.
We are like snowflakes: no two the same.
Cognitive dissonance: a powerful decelerator of human evolution.

I will not grasp too tightly to any version of truth or seeming fact, and I will continually discover newer, upgraded and optimal truths (for me).
Evolution halts by refusing to let go of truths that are not relevant for me.
Discernment, the key.
I am open to my experience.
Direct experience is the best teacher.
Anything I have read or have been taught, the relativity was not highlighted.
I am aware.
Each of us holds the freedom of choice.
Experience, alignment to self & inspired education on the journey to the Mastery of the mind.

Truth is Relative. What a relief.
The Beautiful Truth.

Informed Consent in Treating Psychiatric Conditions

Monday, September 18th, 2017

Informed consent in treating Psychiatric conditions: are we there yet? Sadly, no.

It is time to change the conversation. Truly …
I have always taken the Hippocratic Oath VERY seriously:
First. Do. No. Harm.

What to do when other Physicians appear not to consider it as seriously as I do?
Indeed.

A key excerpt from the article:
“In order to choose, you have to know what’s possible. Perhaps the most important truth I am here to share is predicated on the one of the principal tenets of ethical medicine – INFORMED CONSENT.

Informed consent implies the exploration and confirmed awareness of all known risks, benefits, and alternatives. In addition to peeking behind the curtain of medication efficacy and safety to see the small man pulling the strings, you need to know what is really possible in order to make a choice that feels empowering to you. Did you know that you could put schizophrenia, Bipolar Disorder, OCD, panic attacks, chronic fatigue, ADHD, Major Depression with suicidality, eating disorders, and generalized anxiety into total remission without medication, and even in spite of it? Watch what these people have to say about their experience doing just that. Did you know that you could shed these labels and walk into the wilderness of your life only to encounter the real you? I’ve come to believe, from the hundreds of patients and online participants who tell me the same thing after they come off of medication – that they finally feel like themselves – that psychiatric medication makes the deepest spiritual work largely impossible. It’s almost like cutting the chrysalis to free the struggling caterpillar before it has metamorphosed into a winged creature ready to set aloft.”

My own experience as a Family Physician and patient labelled as Bipolar … I concur.

My Mission Statement: To Enable and Empower Optimal Human Health

Monday, September 18th, 2017

A recent picture of the pond at my new Retreat Center I take possession of at the end of August 2017.

My Mission Statement:
To Enable and Empower Optimal Human Health.

Developing plans for Mental Health programming. Among other health optimizing elements. Food growing, apothecary, sustainable building. Etc.
If you feel to explore a role in this, please message me.
Let’s talk.

Nearly 10 acres just outside Devon on the North side of the North Saskatchewan River.
A 4800 square foot homestyle building will be “La Maison”. (Home in French).
I look forward to collaborate and experiment with effective health programs.
An optimal team is forming.
Facilitators welcome.
Hope to have specific programs develop soon…

My Definition of Enlightenment

Monday, September 18th, 2017

I offer my definition of enlightenment:
Living in a state of truth, love, compassion & joy.
Most of the time.
Other emotions are felt but one is aware of the broader perspective that allows understanding.
Wisdom prevails so other states are easily flowed through.
Harmonic balance allows for fairly quick return to one’s natural state:
Love, compassion & joy.
In varying degrees.

The Beautiful Truth.
As I feel it today.

Be The Change

Monday, February 13th, 2017

I read a piece of writing that I posted on the Disabled Angel website.
Link to the self-published story Be The Change.

Really want to be a participant in Changing the Conversation about how to create the world we all wish to live in. Empower the individual and the systems will take care of themselves. Catch 22 when there are many systemic roadblocks to empowering the individual.

Crazywise Introduction

Sunday, March 6th, 2016

Angele Beaudoin, Family Physician with lived experience (acute mental health crises) shares some personal insights that complement the Documentary Film Crazywise. Production is nearing completion. http://crazywisefilm.com/#donate to join me in financially supporting this fantastic project.

Amsterdam International Documentary Film Festival November 2016 is the big goal.

The Film challenges the way western culture defines and treats Mental Illness.

Phil Borges, one of the producers, speaks on this and related topics. A favourite of mine among his talks: Phil Borges TEDx Talk, Myths, Shamans & Seers. https://youtu.be/q2VzhyIyGkA He has interviewed, among others, the medium who channels the Oracle for the Dalai Lama. Amazing…

TEDx Phil Borges, Psychosis or Spiritual Awakening https://youtu.be/CFtsHf1lVI4

Phil Borges & Kevin Tomlinson, producers, share many clips on their website: www.crazywisefilm.com Emma Bragdon, Katie Mottram, Dagmar Ramos, Myself, Dr. Gabor Mate (Canadian Addictions Physician from Vancouver), Russell Razzaque (Psychiatrist heading the Peer-Assisted Open Dialogue movement in England). Sadghuru, Stanislov Grof (Psychiatrist & Author of Spiritual Emergency)

Many, many others.

“Enable the self-healer within.”
