Let us Iron Straight the social issues of our modern times. Let the path of progress for the human individual be seen as clearly accessible to any person who wishes to apply the true concepts of psychiatry to his own condition.

When Harry Stack Sullivan initiates other practicioners upon the "Developmental Approach", he points out that any two teachers cannot use psychological terms with the same implicative mind-values because men, in general, fail at living with the highest degree of art & passion. Therefore, our own virtuous terms are higher than the standard of living itself, representative of mere potentials or ideal.

But when we consider that Joshua ben Joseph was a man who did not restrict his thoughts, nor limit his own emotional reactions, being satisfied in every way emotionally while at the same time pursuant of the highest intellectual values possible, then Stack Sullivan's own observation becomes challenged. It is not only Jesus but his sons & daughters, "the Adams & Eves" who naturally abide in the highest type of expression.

We require individuals to enhance the underlaying fabric of our peaceful social community, by being present and watching over the major public affairs of town life. Each person must rise up the ladder of human needs, Maslow's Hierarchy or Jacob's Ladder, in order to become self-actualised. Self-actualisation is the highest of human needs, and it cannot be addressed until all of the basic lower needs have been actualised, providing the soul of that one mirthful esteem.

For psychiatry to be practised in the modern world, it must do so in publick, out of private rooms. Actively, and with the mind to address all economic, ecological, and social "outflows" or energy losses. We cannot simply regard the individual and his genetic "equippage", but we must regard him in his environment and see what the inner environment is capable of providing the outer environment, and vice versa. The relationship between human personality expression and the peace of one's environment should be estimated in terms of existing (inner+outer) actuality and potential (combined) harmony.

When counting "every available resource", you should place higher value and precedence to consume "renewable". The resources that you have that do not replenish hold greater value, and must be kept available unto all generations. But the inventory you make upon yourself and your environment, eugenically and chemically, has a great importance when you remember that the Infinite Mind orchestrates conditions of life based on both the awareness of human mind and the fact of what is actual within his environment.

Psychiatry is closed and limited to the set of sentience that may enfold within the human awareness. Just as this is so, the Urantia Book is only the revelation of God according to the journey of an ascensionary soul. The science is therefore limited, but we may also have a greater faith that when the human perception is prepared according to his proper (destined) function, the necessary mind-values will arrange perfectly in order to provide the inbuilt awareness

Stack Sullivan will encourage us to "work, in order to prevent neurosis", and maybe psychiatry will develop into a positive-orientation instead of a negative. In western psychiatry, the perfection of the human character is strongly emphasized despite the fact of "reward systems" that ultimately may degrade overall human motivation.

Jesus upheld John Mark ben Elijah Mark as the example of the human individual to his Advisors. This young man was raised intimately by his parents, received the best encouragement and advice during his entire youth. His parents offered John Mark to a greater teacher when they saw that he became capable of living independently. John Mark had a great drive to please his teachers and elders, to perform his duty. John Mark cooperated in the needful publick affairs of his society, the very obvious tasks of feeding the group not being below the development of new social ordinance and upholding good more's. For many reasons worth closer examination, John Mark in the Urantia Book/ Bible is the example of a healthy human individual who abides in the ideal of both Harry Stack Sullivan and Joshua ben Joseph.

I must regard that I am not talking about any psychiatry pertaining to human pathology, but regarding the human in the potential he has to do good things, and to become like He Whom Created Him, the existentially overguiding One that helps arrange and formulate "all that is called 'good' within the human mind".

I thus encourage you to give the fond expression of all natural human needs in the most altruistic manner that is possible for you and your own understanding.

When we look at the outer environment, we may identify social groups, companies, and human institutions as part of "City Function", but we must also regard "the Farm" as the primary institution that is interactive between "Property" (material that has been named or identified) and "Wild". One "the Farm", there is an interaction between objects and things, things that exist which are known to the human individual and things that exist which are either forgotten or unknown.

Something that is "junk" is going to be lost or forgotten eventually, unless circumstances change. Some object that is identifiable easily hold value and is separate from the ubiquity of being "junk". On the farm, we want the wildness of natural growth, but we also want to preserve the value of objects-assets. The seed is the concentrated pattern of a living form, containing within it the pattern for its parent, and in the modern world the investment-return of the seed is the greatest token of sustainability. Sustainability is the measure of a society's self-preservation.

Since there exists so much pathology of "the modern apartment" (such a great outflow of things becoming "junk"), we should only look at ideal families or look at "the Farm", since it is a place where the value of things is appreciate and preserved as mightly as human ability provides for. There on the farm, we see the maximization of the return of these renewable assets, both the seed and the plant's beneficial bulk. You do not see a better example of how cosmic operation preserves energies and utilizes substances than the farm, but every city must become the model of cosmic operation.

Until we arrive at the proper work, the proper solution, for handling our material and psychological concerns, we shall see the overwhelming signs of our own individual but also society's/Urantia's collective neurosis. We see the new parkinglots barricading the rain from the soil. We see the landfills maw and gape, but become filled with fresh waste. And the fact that there are material "energy losses" in the system must be indicative of pathology we have. Any sincere individual would be willing to shore up his own losses, and so take better habit to care for "things being kept around", and to deal not with excessive packaging, with false promises.

We must give up the belief in positive suggestion, because it appears in the outer-covering of a package that is quickly discarded. When we focus on the core of what the thing is, we are not mistaken in our observations of it.

:?: Reminds me of three possibilities for the group's reception of my Speech

a) What is the association of your Speech with the title "Psychiatry in its Modern Complacency"?

b) I am Curious to know more, Please elaborate in further detail.

c) How is this relevent to the group's discussion forum?



(a) possibility:
Our Society desperately needs to restate our psychiatric goals from the pathological approach (an institution of self-protection), to the approach that demands increasing perfection from the human individaul (an institution of self-maintenance).


b)
We need to remember our grandparents, who stood actively while working, and regularly used tools and machinery in order to create goods. They had meager gardens and would try to grow nut and fruit trees in their yardspace. Whatever was given unto their usage was disposed unto in some productive venture.

The traditional cultural habits should not be lost but reappraised for the modern world, and then associated with new and higher goals of spiritual striving. Each of us must begin to apply the modern type of psychiatry by looking considerately upon our neighbours sincere requests for help.

Children should be involved in the immersive experience of as many cultures and fellowships as possible. So often, we see that children are placed with a peer-group, but it is wiser to choose for one's associates persons who are of every age and both genders.

The approach of wellness in modern society is akin to the restoration of the values found in the Garden of Eden given unto Adam & Eve #14311 of Satania, build by Noah and Noahson, previously governed by Van & Amadon. The society of volunteers and the customs of citizenship from Eden is a universal social-pattern that reincorporates all of the good customs from previous societies and tribes of Urantia. "Henceforth, we shall all follow him", and in this spirit may the existing customs of our world make sense within the frame-work of a new City modelled somewhat after Van's vision.

The collective viewpoint is an exstension of a farming-industrial society, whose main goal is to convert the surrounding lands into abundantly-producing estates. The hedgerows of the garden carrying a sequence of paired plantings that is both visually appealing and harmonious for the growth of each plant. These are the medicinal plants of ayurvedic psychotherapy.

It is in an Ayurvedic Garden (Simon of Bethany had one, for instance) that Man reorients his own psychological viewpoint, and the divine ideal reappears to his witness, all of the psychological motivations and inner desires necessary to accomplish God's Goal. Reorientative processes, such as the human mind encounters when the Socratic Teacher asks the right question. The basic farm should contain the Ayurvedic (Edible Forest) Garden, which becomes a model for expression for each family who has been given land to tend for these purposes.

1)How shall we reorient our viewpoint psychiatric and psychological in order to accomodate the greater truth that was withheld Rudolf Steiner and even Carl G. Jung?
2)How may man salvage the bulk of Modern Psychiatry in a way that can improve the potential-output of creativity?
3)How can our personality shape the world around us? (How may we appropriately express the personalities that each one of us has?)

Psychiatry is not limited to man's relationship with his mind, but this is the central grownds that the Thought Adjuster has approach to man. Think of the modern interview office as a space shut-off from outer monitoring apparatus, where "the One who Listens" has given the hour(or-so) of personal attention to the needs of the human individual who enters and sits down. The person who shares his experiences does so for personal benefit, rather than the benefit of the modern psychotherapist and therefore begins the abstractional process of "imagining that one is communing with the Thought Adjuster".

The shared-purpose of me & my friend, of the person who is giving psychotherapy and the person who is receiving psychotherapy, is that both are seeking to discover the highest ultimate purpose for the soul, and to maximise the chances of successful fulfillment for the Paradise-Pattern of the Individual in its creation0--manifestation as "Urantian beauty". To be beautiful, as I know it, is to have broughtforththefruitsofspiritasadisciple.

Holy Spirit descend upon the witness, in order to understand the psychiatric needs of the Urantian population, and of the beauty of nature herself to be expressed inupon this world. Give him the revelation of insight to guide his brothers and sisters, his neighbours and his family, of all that is needful to provide, give to his mind & circumstance.

The true needs of psychiatry are both for the community and for the individual. You have access to the providence of grace necessary to fulfill one's duty- the covenant of cosmic citizenship, through cosmic circuits and of more divine circuits of the Divine Minister. But psychiatry is a matter of bringing those currents into the actual thought patterns of the "unconscious" or through spiritual receptivity. Therefore, psychiatry is more of a means of attunement than atonement, devoting the mind to receiving of the energy from the Holy Spirit and to allow guidance from one' Thought Adjuster.

(a) Therefore, psyhchiatric attunement is qualifiable moreso as an institution of self-maintenance than of self-protection.

(c) I am saying this because modern Priests and Fathers need to be Psychiatrists to tends the needs of their own children (God's Children). This comes in the form of being a helpful friend and a true listener for someone who is expressing his own need. As such, Psychiatry has religious relevence and therefore I am offering this discussion to the people of truthbook.com
