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.

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
I AM THE UNIVERSE
