Up to about three decades ago… Homosexuality was listed in mental health as a mental illness. It was listed as a mental illness because it is a mental illness. But, when a sufficient number of mentally ill individuals had become part of “modern mental health,” or what I refer to as “BS&bp” [Behavioral Science and the oxymoron ‘behavioral psychology’]. These sexually confused mental health workers [who were quite ignorant regarding their own illness] worked their way onto the board that edits the main listing of mental illnesses for both psychology and psychiatry.
They urged that board to withdraw the labeling of Homosexuality as a mental illness from the list of mental illnesses. This was possible… oddly enough… because that which CAUSES Homosexuality is the MIND of Man. And the MIND of Man cannot be perceived by the human brain, nor “proven” to exist by physical or tangible means.
And the reason those fields that operate within what we refer to as ‘mental health’ are so ignorant of the MIND of Man is due to the influence of B.F. Skinner, and the simple fact that both the MIND of Man, and the Spirituality of Man cannot be known [that is, actually experienced by the brain of Man], so these people tend to believe that there is nothing that the brain cannot “know”. This is what B.F. Skinner believed, as demonstrated in this quote of his…
This quote is from the book of Richard I. Evans, B.F. Skinner: The Man and his Ideas. New York: E.P. Dutton & Co. 1968.
“A child is influenced and changed as a biological entity by things that happen to him, but the notion that somehow or other the child of our past is still contained within us is a form of animism which serves no useful purpose in explaining present behavior.”
In this quote, Skinner’s reference to “the child of our past” as a form of “animism” was his way of discounting the Esoteric, or invisible nature of the MIND of Man. He said this because he was suffering from Intellectualism [denial of emotion], and he was also entirely ignorant of the Esoteric nature of the field of Psychology, as given to the world by the ancient Greeks over 2,000 years ago.
Skinner was not alone in his inability to experience the subtle dimensions of Man. Indeed, a large number of people in the world are unaware that they are not capable of “experiencing” the Esoteric [or invisible] dimensions of Man by use of their brains alone. The faculty of Intuition is not a “physical” aspect of Man, it is an Esoteric or invisible aspect of the Whole of Man that is only available to Souls that have acquired a certain elevated level of C’etc, or Consciousness. So, Intuition is not taught in education today, and this perfectly normal faculty of Man is thought to be dangerous, or a sign of illness by people whose level of natural maturation has not [as yet] achieved the level of Consciousness where Intuition is a natural aspect of their lives.
How can a person in the field of mental health proclaim that sexually conflicted individuals are not suffering from a MENTAL ILLNESS… when they know absolutely nothing about the MIND of Man? The simple answer is… they cannot do so, although this inability to understand the MIND of Man does not deter them from doing so. Such is the nature of the arrogance of BS&bp in America today.
