While the human energy field has been considered to be an integral part of human healing for eons of time, the relationship between the energy system and human emotion are now being viewed from a teleological, or goal driven, perspective.
As the goals of emotions and thought are both becoming clearer and the underlying neurobiology and physiology are becoming more understandable, the intrinsic and extrinsic motivational drivers of human survival and existence are paving the way for the emergence of the true holistic model of human existence.
The true healing system may rightfully be considered to be that of a bio/psycho/social one, which is constrained by culture, influenced by technological innovation, and regulated by a higher spiritual power that is within and outside of us.
In some cultures, the source of neurological and psychological troubles may very well believed to be the result of the doings of members of a very well defined and broad demonic hierarchy; the antithesis of the angelic one. In other, more scientific, ‘cultures,’ the root of some of these problems are believed to be most likely caused by problems associated with NMDA regulated glutamate channels leading to epileptiform activity within the medial temporal lobe of the brain. Still other ‘subcultures’ may entertain the idea that the glutamate channels are regulated in part by zinc and magnesium and that these nutrients are in turn regulated by other nutrients, including the B Complex and that Vitamin C and Omega three fatty acids must be in balance along with a host of other factors.
The purpose of human love will be explored within the domains of survival on the one hand and divine love within a broader, more universal, context.
The truth of the matter is that it is truth that matters most, and authority which does not espouse truth, wherever it may be found, matters least. So if you find an idea or a reference that you don’t resonate with, consider that the person who wrote the material, regardless of their credentials, may be at least as smart as you are in some way and that you may learn something useful that you overlooked; if even just a small amount. Might want to jot some things like that down.
A couple of pages have been added at the end so that you make notes from this book or from whatever sources suite your purposes.
Throughout this text we will discuss a variety of disease processes, including what might aptly be called the spiritual diseases. These are the diseases that make sufferers appear as though they have had taken away their spirit, like they don’t have a soul.
