Spread Light – Please Forward Inspiration

Dear Dr Amen,

Amen and Amen! – in Judaism (Hebrew) Amen, means so may it be – and be it as it may, so may you flourish in your Divinely ordained healing role.

I have become a “groupie” : )

I would like to share (from Jewish mysticism – an extraordinary wisdom…) a number of I believe beneficial points:

  1. As the primary driver of all human behavior is what is called “crown,” which contains the two drives, for pleasure (and its corollary lack of pain) and desire – so we may desire a pleasure, but conversely, nothing stands in the way of willpower, for when we desire something, the desire itself creates (an ego) pleasure, (this is why winning (say sports) is so precious..)

Now Kabbalah describes the human (apart from our Divine soul, but in what is called, abilities or expressions) into primarily three brains and seven emotions:


Chochma is the right brain (this is quite amazing! as I read a Kabbalistic treatise on this, from two hundred years ago!) this is the creative innovate ability.

Then we have binah – this is the left brain, this is the deeper analytical deduction (so while Chochmah will give you a new idea, binah can give you both its ramifications, as well as mechanism to implement – now for a person to be healthy, as one of the primary books of Kabbalah teaches, “choceim, bivinah; vhavein, bichochma,” you must a. have the big idea b. have the details, but simultaneously have both!)

Now what make us unique, is we have prefrontal lobes, this is called daas – daas is also called identification – in other words, what makes us unique is the ability to have objective identification – whereas say, a bird may love her chick (as it is her child, like a parent loves their child etc.) nonetheless as humans can come up with a new idea (say how spect scans are such a great tool) and then fall in love with this idea – the more one thinks about the value of something, the more one develops a desire for it

Now we go into the emotions:

The first emotion is love, as mentioned (either an innate, say parent to child or born) love, such as what a great mechanism, to achieve, either something I love (namely, beneficial either to my body, soul, those I love etc.)

On the exact flipside is fear – fear is how to stay away from something that will harm me (whether body, soul, person I love who will be hurt etc., now when in the state of fear (as we know the amygdala takes over, and diverts blood flow to the prefrontal lobe) we go into panic (of-course this causes a host of issues which you are well aware of – so before we can properly help someone, they need to feel safe (studies show a. all mental disturbances is based on anxiety (and at least from the terms of psychotherapy) the only “therapy” that works is when there is a respectable dialogue between therapist and individual (exactly why this works I hypothesize is because (as Dr Berke (amazing psychiatrist, therapist) told me, effectively, what occurs is people often become afraid of people, so as stimuli a. (people create the neurosis, hence stimuli b. (people) can create the solution, which he says is simply by being joyous (for when you are joyous, the other realizes that people are pleasure not danger / pain.)

Anyway as an offshoot of fear is Judgmentalism. Jealousy. Anger (for we all have innate jealousy – the need for life to be fair – hence when we feel we are singularly suffering, this causes (as say as we see in a period..) the brain then subconsciously create conscious thoughts of “they,” “the other is evil” and “I must harass them” – this neatly explains the bizarre both behavior and excuses of evil, such as in bullying, antisemitism, anti really anyone who hasn’t harmed anyone…)

Now as Tanya explains, there is a two way brain heart street, so while my brain (uniquely – can create a new emotion – it conversely can also be influenced by an emotion

The next “emotion” is called Tifferes, this is a more mature response (so immaturity is seeing the entire world as good or evil) however, when we can discern, choose blend love and fear, we are mature (it is also associated with compassion, giving, caring)

The next emotion is netzach / winning (as we mentioned, this is deeply rooted in our soul)

The next emotion is sensitivity (hoid)   a person who is unsure will usually be sensitive

The next emotion is morality, this is a blend of winning and sensitivity, for as you wish to say teach or give, you have to bend both winning over your instinct to not, as well as to do so in a sensitive (dignified) manner

The final emotion is humility – in other words, where you can accept God, truth, and hopefully this translates into the more (soul) expressions, of thoughts, speech and action.

As you are brain “Fanatic” : )

You will find the following interesting

2. Left Brain   Details3. Prefrontal   IntegratingRight brain

Fear (which also – as we have innate jealousy – creates Judgmentalism – fascinating subject…)“In-Between”

More like detached observation   Or integrated (the emotion here is not about my reaction rather my action, like compassion.)
Sensitive (or sensitivity)6. In Between

 10. Humility 

As you can tell from this chart there is a right left and center.

The right side is called expansive, this is actually the (role) male.

We have creativity, we also love winning (you may call it add – but as you also mention, it has great potential)

The left side is contracted – fear contracts the self (as its protective, and we know the biological system goes into a fight, flight mechanism) it is also the female brain – ironically the reason females have more anxiety (and its corollary depression) is because they have larger (and certainly better integrated (left right brain) so when one’s left brain is bigger, you see more details, so you see more to fear, which affects self-esteem, also seeking protection (also become judgmental, if suffering ) and as a result as mentioned sensitive

(BYT in terms of making a marriage work, the key is for the husband to make his wife happy – for in joy there is not judgmentalism)

Finally, we have the center – now if you notice humility at the very bottom which connects man to God, but also to reason – so the middle line, is where the highest best self, come

There is much more, if you find this interesting…
