12 Monkeys

Great movie.  Bruce Willis as a hero time-traveler with a touch of schizoaffective disorder who can save the world, if he can distinguish what's crazy and what's not.  The best line comes from Madeleine Stowe as a psychiatrist: "I mean, psychiatry: it's the latest religion.  We decide what's right and wrong.  We decide who's crazy or not.  I'm in trouble here.  I'm losing my faith."

How can you say what's crazy and what's inspirational?  The prophets would all be classified as crazy today.  What if someone came to save the world and we stuck them in a straitjacket?  The "mentally ill" have sensitive brain circuitry that seems to open windows that are closed for most people.  In ancient times the mentally ill were shamans, or visionaries.  What was Joseph Smith?  What if we listened to the visions and considered they may offer guideposts in a world which is often times too mired in realism, routine, drudgery and dispassion.  We are automatons without the fireworks of the mentally ill. 

I've walked in Heaven, I've been to the future, I've brought back answers.  Will I be thought crazy for trying to lead us to a better place?  Will I be banished because I dispute organized religion?

"Cassandra, in Greek legend, was condemned to know the future but to be disbelieved when she foretold it.  Hence the agony of foreknowledge combined with the impotence to do anything about it."

That's the problem.  Will I have wasted my life if no one believes me?

Book for sale!

My book launched this week!  It is for sale on Amazon and is called "Through the Open Door: A Bipolar Attorney talks Mania, Recovery, and Heaven on Earth."  It takes you places you can only imagine....a manic state, a psychiatric ward, Heaven on Earth. 

It's been 13 years since my diagnosis and hospitalization.  I've tried a dozen medications and more doctors and therapists, but I always knew I could find a way out.  I am now a wife, mother, and attorney and I have painted my canvas with broad beautiful strokes. 

Bipolars, please don't think that taking medication will temper your glow.  It may take a while to find the right recipe but when you do you can be bigger and better than even your manic state.  Treatment is a must. 

My book might sound like it is a Christian book, what with the Heaven on Earth in the title.  On the contrary, as the problems that have plagued our religions for centuries revealed themselves to me, I knew that I was not a Christian.  I think when religion ends we will truly inherit the promised land.  Heaven is coming soon, for all of us.  My book shares the revelations about the end of religion that I brought back from Heaven.

When I say I have Graduated from God, it's sort of semantics.  I have really become one with him.  I look in the mirror and it's him looking back at me.  "Through a glass darkly, then face to face."  Assumption of God is the very closest relationship you can have with him, and when we realize we are the Gods, we will be reunited with him finally and it will be very good.  He has been waiting with bated breath for us to make this realization, but it is up to us. 

I hope you enjoy the book and continue to read this blog.  Follow me on twitter (hilchaney) or on Facebook.
