It's a nice thought but unfortunately not the case, in my experience. I know quite a few people with bipolar and it's a horrible, horrible devastating illness that messes up their lives and those they care about, leaving them pretty much unable to function as humans.

I also know people who have had spiritual experiences yet are sane and remain socially acceptable- in fact, they are the most likely ones to be sane and socially acceptable :)

I'm not one for meds but we need to step up our mental healthcare to meet the demands of this era.

Sometimes a heightened level of spiritual awareness or a different means of perceiving the world can create very deep imbalances within the mind and aura if your environment and the people around you can't help you adjust in a healthy manner. Those imbalances then lead to all sorts of maladies which actually serve to greatly muddy and dilute the aforementioned awareness.
