Modern Medicine Recognizes the Power of Poetry


Meanwhile, great figures in the world of medicine were recognizing the important relationship of the arts to healing. "Not I, but the poet discovered the unconscious," wrote Freud. Other theoreticians, such as Adler, Jung, Arieti and Reik also confirmed that the poets were the first to chart paths that science later followed. Moreno suggested the term "psychopoetry," as well as the term "psychodrama", for which he is famous. By the 1960's, with the progressive evolution of group psychotherapy, therapists were delighted to discover that "poetry therapy" was an effective tool which they felt comfortable incorporating into their work. Poetry Therapy began to flourish in the hands of professionals in various disciplines, including rehabilitation, education, library science, recreation, and the creative arts.

   I Am The Universe

I have special qualifications in mind sterilization.

I can delete all illusions.

Step outside of time why the world is still moving.

Ventures place you have never been.

I sit back and wait for the shift of 2013

I where a photon belt around my waist 

I swim as the fishes and hibernate as the bears.

I am the roar when the lion's roar

I am the owl speaking

I rest when the bird rest

I am the heart beat and every person that speaks

I am the Universe and the Universe is me, from the Sun

above the sky, to the stars that shine at night.

I am in many forms of truth and  light.

I am the Universe from the Milky Way all the way to Pluto.

I have existed for billions and billions of years , I am Eternal.

I am the water you drink the food you eat, and what you love

and cherish the most

"Soulmates = same soul Ray?
Or shared past lives?
Or both?

If the 6th Ray of Devotion and Idealism will be outphased, the energy of this Ray can still be of use. It depends on how the energy is used."
