A few years ago, a series of studies came out in an attempt to sort of ‘debunk’ people who practice spirituality. The study found that people who have a spiritual understanding of life tend to be more susceptible to mental health problems, addictions, and anxiety disorders.

Yes. It raises many many questions.

I have a member of my family who has schizophrenia, and it also came with very strong tactile hallucinations, not only feeling and being touched by other beings but being raped by them constantly as well...it's very very disturbing for him as you can guess. he has managed to train his mind to be open ended enough to let these experiences wash through him and not get caught up in the mental turmoil and anguish that usually follow when others suffer the same sort of thing, I have told him to view these experiences as a great mirror does which only reflects what is and does not hold on to what it reflects, and also to undermine and challenge the voices he hears which constantly taunt him and threaten his life...they make predictions as well but only about his own demise, so he has learned to not engage with these voices in a negative or in a positive light, they must not be given any feedback whatsoever as this is still energy which gives them validity credibility and status, he has stopped the medication as he's said it will only shorten his life, so thankfully he has managed to create some positive head space to live in, but he is still constantly bombarded by these voices and tactile hallucinations which plague him, I told him that once the training starts to make his head clearer then the voices and tactile hallucinations will also get stronger and clearer, and thats exactly what happened! the voices and tactile hallucinations did get stronger but the knowledge of this saved him from breaking down and losing his life, but he has found a space now for the moment to live, thats his life at this moment in time.

Being, your dedication to the subject,compassion and your deepest desire to pass information/knowledge/raise awareness and compassion to reduce suffering for those who might suffer similar to you have is simply striking. Hope you achieve your goals and make that necessary difference you seem driven to.

Thank you lifensoul, that is a very kind message.

The question of mental health & it's treatment i feel is a very major & important issue, for everyone (albeit a very complex one). i'm not in much agreement with the current mental health systems & general treatment of people in this area, & i do think that things could be a lot better. The way our society is i think also directly reflects on the way the system is.

Not sure there is really anything that i can do to change society & the system to a more caring & humane World? But i do try to do what i can to raise awareness on certain areas.

As far as i can find an answer, i do think there is something in taking a far more comprehensive integral view to these areas - everything is interconnected & interdependent.

i would love to see a genuinely more humane, peaceful & civilised Word, & far better treatment for the 'mad/mentally ill'.

We may one day see a paradigm shift within all these areas -

“The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.”.

- Nikola Tesla

As a man who has devoted his whole life to the most clear headed science, to the study of matter, I can tell you as a result of my research about atoms this much: There is no matter as such. All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particle of an atom to vibration and holds this most minute solar system of the atom together. We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent Mind. This Mind is the matrix of all matter.

— Max Planck, Das Wesen der Materie, 1944

A Crisis at the Edge of Physics -

http://www.nytimes.com/2015/06/07/op...=fb-share&_r=0

Implicit in such a maneuver is a philosophical question: How are we to determine whether a theory is true if it cannot be validated experimentally? Should we abandon it just because, at a given level of technological capacity, empirical support might be impossible? If not, how long should we wait for such experimental machinery before moving on: ten years? Fifty years? Centuries?

Consider, likewise, the cutting-edge theory in physics that suggests that our universe is just one universe in a profusion of separate universes that make up the so-called multiverse. This theory could help solve some deep scientific conundrums about our own universe (such as the so-called fine-tuning problem), but at considerable cost: Namely, the additional universes of the multiverse would lie beyond our powers of observation and could never be directly investigated. Multiverse advocates argue nonetheless that we should keep exploring the idea — and search for indirect evidence of other universes.

The opposing camp, in response, has its own questions. If a theory successfully explains what we can detect but does so by positing entities that we can’t detect (like other universes or the hyperdimensional superstrings of string theory) then what is the status of these posited entities? Should we consider them as real as the verified particles of the standard model? How are scientific claims about them any different from any other untestable — but useful — explanations of reality?
