Judging from accounts of mystical experience, heightened creativity, or exceptional performance by athletes and artists, we harbor a greater life than we know.

Instead we become available to our capacity for a larger life in body, mind, and spirit. In this state we know great torrents of delight.
~ Jean Houston - [Spirit and Spirituality]

~ Thomas Szasz - [Psychiatry]

~ Queen Victoria - [Mothers]

Psychiatric expert testimony: mendacity masquerading as medicine.
