People can heal the sensitivity to become psychotic by becoming AWARE…that is a growth and maturation process…when one matures enough to become an observer of their thoughts and become discerning about the content of their thoughts psychosis pretty much goes away…

Psychosis is, among (many) other things, also, quite often, a deep attachment to one’s (not consensually reasonable) thoughts and beliefs. To be clear much of what is consensually and widely believed in society and the mainstream is also delusional. It’s just generally accepted. R.D Laing has much to say about the “normal” human being. Let’s just say that real clarity and lucidity is not normal.

All human beings can become psychotic under the right (or wrong) circumstances…https://beyondmeds.com/2014/02/26/psychosis-or-awakening/

Once in our life we experience weird things that we can't explain or even understand but in the right time answers will come to give us deeper understanding.

I've had a 'psychosis' before. It was the most spiritual experience of my life. I could decipher signs from everything. Although now looking back, I see my behaviour was out of balance. I wasn't sleeping some days and was staying up learning about 'it'. I just called it, 'it' because there wasn't a word to describe what 'it' was.

I am presently trying to differentiate which part of my experience is a healthy part of awakening and which is an unhealthy part of some"psychosis". I know it is not all crazy psychosis, no matter what anybody says there is no doubt in my mind. But at the same time I want to remain functional and somewhat able to relate to others in a"normal" way.

I've had a psychosis similar to yours on several occasions but it's not so unusual for me as I have bipolar 1. I experienced total loss of ego and a full connection with the breathtaking enormity of the cosmos. The whole experience lives with you long afterwards as the experience is incredibly real.

I've experienced a few instances of 'psychosis' and what I find interesting about the shaman approach is that there is a mentor to help you through these times. Like you said, you had no name for 'it' and just had to learn about it on your own. I believe that's it can get out of balance since you are in charge of controlling it, or at the very least the people close to you may not know how to support you. So the solution is usually go to the doctor and get help.

Capitalism, at least in it's current incarnation, doesn't WANT a higher level of consciousness. It wants us to watch the news, buy useless shit, shame our friends for not having the right trainers or following the current fashion trends, trample nature and best our peers. In short, it wants us to be spiritually bankrupt. It takes everything given to us as children and it wrings it out of us until all that's left is a slave.

Spiritual awakening seems to be happening regardless of your comment. Google trends shows a steady rise in the search term"Spiritual Awakening" since 2007.

I WOKE UP around 1986, and it has only gotten stronger with the years. The funny thing is that I always thought that"being enlightened" would mean that people looked up to me for it, that I would make friends more easily, that I would be more popular. In fact, it turned out to be just the opposite, and many people resent me for being happy and lighthearted, some hate me on sight, and very few"get me." But it is worth it, because I feel that I have fulfilled my purpose in life, the reason I am here. Now I know what the 11th century Zen master and poet, Tilopa, meant when he wrote:"When you look for it, you cannot find it. When you find it, you can't get rid of it. When you do neither, it's right there."

I agree with 100% you saying. I feel like this too and ppl think your crazy. It can't be how can sounding intelligent and using your words be a bad thing? It's like all jealously.
