Reflections of the spectrum.

Why does corporate America always want to turn something joyous into a career? Something you may partake in simply for the fact that you like to do that particular thing or that it makes you feel good. Why does every instance of this life have to be embellished with the idea of making money or my personal favorite "Lots of money." When I here that phrase I instantly get "Lots of wicked chills." There's nothing wrong with making cash, considering that's what is necessary today to be able to provide for you and your loved ones but the social conditioning would have you believe that more money leads to fulfillment or "happiness" that is unattainable without. That is just ridiculous to me, I know a few of you know some miserably rich fucks and some poor content bastards out in the world I know a few myself. My main issue I suppose is... why is cash seemingly the motivating factor behind every move we make? How is it that we can cherish pieces of paper more than we value our own well being? I'd say we've been duped, tricked into believing in the "power" of cash and materialism. Taught to devalue our spiritual selves and not recognize ourselves as the light beings that we are. Subjecting ourselves to heavy and sometimes thankless workloads all in the pursuit of a few dollars that our minds so desperately depend on. Which in turn leaves little to no time to partake in activities that you like or time with your loved ones. Time: yet another constraint our minds desperately cling to, but I'm going off on a tangent here with my woes ha-ha. I think about this stuff every day, the lies that have been instilled in not only my head but millions of others, the deception of it all just consumes my thoughts. I stay sane by keeping in mind that it's all apart of the plan to keep us light beings living this fear based lifestyle of worrying where our next meal will come from or how we'll pay our next bill and whether it's genetically modified or our energy consumption will destroy our planet and send us into oblivion. Me keeping myself aware of this helps me, it encourages me to focus on the positivity in our lives because it is there. I just have to learn to pay more attention, which doesn't cost one dollar Peace, Love & Oneness to all you beautiful people out there โœŒ

It's hard to figure out how to balance that whole "art" and "commerce" thing...figuring out what balance we can strike between our passions and what is necessary to survive. I really appreciated these thoughts though, really well written.

Doctors can personify the voices heard by people with schizophrenia. Instead of tormenting patients, the avatars get nicer over time, and in some cases totally relieve auditory hallucinations.
Schizophrenia: a mental disorder characterized by abnormal social behavior and failure to understand what is real. Common symptoms include false beliefs, unclear or confused thinking, hearing voices that others do not hear, reduced social engagement and emotional expression, and a lack of motivation. About 65% of patients with schizophrenia experience verbal auditory hallucinations, typically in the form of voices that emanate from perceived โ€œothers,โ€ who tend to fit the same unsavory profileย โ€“ they're domineering, derogatory and unremittingly hostile. (source) They tell them to do violent things, they cause them to lose control. But in a test in 2009-2011, there was a breakthrough in dealing with these violent voices. Giving the voices a face. The therapy allowed patients to create an avatar, or visual representation of the source of their perceived auditory hallucinations, known as the โ€œpersecutor,โ€ whose speech closely matched the pitch and tone of the persecutory voice in their heads. Patients were then encouraged to engage in a dialogue with the avatar, who was controlled by a therapist. The results of the therapy were astounding, with some patients finding their hallucinations completely vanishing. Of course, there were some that did not have any change, but with the second round of testing an even higher percentage of patients found that their hallucinations lessened. According to the studyโ€™s lead author Tom K J Craig, PhD, FRCP, emeritus professor of social psychiatry at Kingโ€™s College London, โ€œThe operation of power within this relationship is viewed as crucialโ€ฆthe voice-hearer assum[es] a submissive role characterized by feelings of inferiority and powerlessness that can reflect social relationships more generally,โ€ researchers wrote. โ€œThe therapist (switching between speaking as therapist and as avatar) facilitates a dialogue in which the voice-hearer gradually gains increased power and control within the relationship, with the initially omnipotent voice loosening its grip over the hearer by becoming more conciliatory over time." Basically, they made the avatar be nicer overtime and gave the patient the feeling of having control over it. For the full article: here
