Luna- Posted December 11, 2010 Report Share Posted December 11, 2010 I found a most interesting article on the spirituality of manic insight. Does anyone else here know that feeling, in euphoric mania, of being at one with the universe, of seeing the connectedness of all things and experiencing the majestic unity and magnificence of creation and being an integral part of it, blended into it? That feeling that everything is following a divine plan and is as it should be, all living things together in the natural order of things, plants, animals, humans?I never labelled this "mania" until 2 years ago when the pdoc I was seeing for depression called it that and said I had Bipolar 1. What a shock. But those experiences were undeniably real experiences and far more than mere psychopathology.I am not very religious and even my connection with spirituality has been very tenuous in recent years. But that feeling and this article really resonated with me and validated what I feel in mania. It extends the purely psychiatric paradigm into spirituality.Does God Have a Place in Psychiatric Treatment Plans?By Victoria Maxwell. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
