The purpose of mental illness

Eckhart Tolle asked about the purpose of mental illness made me reflect on the nature of consciousness, of each human being a part of the ‘one’ universal consciousness or conscience or cosmic awareness. And how each being relates to the changing nature of society and of the planet’s evolution is reflected by actions which may appear to be insane, like killing or enslaving another human being because we can’t cope with change, because we can’t adapt quickly enough. Sometimes people are mind-controlled by their nation or state and told that it is ok to kill others because the state or nation is threatened. It is a taking of the personal psychosis to the level of institutional legitimization of violence and killing a part of our self. It’s like deciding to cut off one’s arm because it is not perceived as being useful, appropriate, or necessary.
There are various degrees of mental illness, of neurosis which is an acute reaction to not being able to adapt to change in one’s personal, mental, and social environment because perhaps of rigid beliefs and values which are not adaptive.
Then it progresses to psychosis, or detachment from reality, detachment from self, from ownership of one’s actions, behaving without ethics or cosmic navigator, with no respect for other’s rights, behaving as if one were separate and that one’s life were being threatened so the only recourse is to kill, to attack, to project one’s fear and insecurity upon the outside reality, upon society. This is the foundation of war, personal and social psychosis by persons in positions of power nationally controlling the minds of the military and politicians to justify killing and murder to protect the state, their positions of power, their monopolies on wealth.
The purpose of mental illness is that it is the canary in the coalmine alerting society and Humanity that part of the social body is sick, needs healing, to be reassured that it is loved, necessary, and a part of the whole.
Mental illness is the battery in the smoke-detector alerting us to the fire, in this case alerts us to the danger signal being sent out that someone is suffering, is feeling alone, unloved, abandoned.
Mental illness is a manifestation of fear into anger, projected as hate and violent behaviour.

    Reblogged this on Ways of Being Well and commented:

    Too often when faced with someone with mental illness we rush to judgment and close our hearts rather than open our hearts with compassion and understanding that the individual is suffering and manifesting fear and confusion.

      thanks for your comment and repost. It’s sometimes difficult to understand the manifestations and actions of mentally unstable and unpredictable behaviours. It’s also sometimes difficult to have compassion for someone who acts out violently and without any apparent justified reason, even though justification doesn’t apply to acting out violently against anyone. There is no appropriate use of violence, even against those who are being violent. The hate which is projected should not be reciprocated. Fire fuels fire. Hate fuels more hate if violence is the outcome.
