“A merry heart goes all the day. Your sad tires in a mile-a.”
William Shakespeare made that observation about the connection between the mental state and the rate at which we are able to function some 400 years ago.
I guess things don’t change much do they? Happiness, it seems, gives us more energy, while sadness makes us feel warn out.
Almost all of us who have any experience with the ups and down of life that’s who. Had a rough day at work? You get home and all you want to do is crash in front of the boob tube, gobble up something quick and down some suds. What channel is the Simpson’s on again?
In contrast you may have had a great day (lucky dog!). The supervisor commented on how effective your suggestions have been and has sent off a memo to that effect to those who matter. You get home and you’re ready to party. You feel like the day passed so quickly it’s like you’ve gone through some sort of time warp or something. You stay up late talking to anybody who wants to listen.
In humans it is clear that whatever the intellect is seeing that is what it becomes. Looking at all the troubles in your world as well as the world around you? Get ready for a bout of depression. Concentrate on all the abundance and beauty in the world and you’re in nirvana (unless you’re busy driving down the freeway of course).
But here’s the problem and it’s a huge one. It’s an un-controlable up and down existence. If the condition of your state (both physical and ethereal) is dictated by what you’re looking at any given time, then that fact alone exposes a vulnerability that could have severe consequences for your health and your ability to function in the world. You simply can’t ignore all the things coming at you and deal with them at the same time.
In his book “Ageless Body, Timeless Mind” Dr Deepak Chopra details studies done that associate an increase in the decline in a steroid known as DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) with the stress one encounters in life. DHEA is thought to enhance neuron health in the brain and is in natural decline as one’s age progresses. Experiments with subjects who practice TM (Transcendental Meditation) regularly have shown some improvement in the level of DHEA retention. TM, it seems, has some real merit. It’s true that thoughts do create biology.
This study is somewhat interesting to me since my work with H.E.R.O. over the years has demonstrated that it is at least 10 times more powerful that TM. I believe that’s because, as mentioned above, you end up feeling like that which you are observing. With H.E.R.O. graduates it is simply because the results of it creates a solid confidence and happiness that appear to stay active without much reinforcement despite continued stress-producing life experience.
Distress then can be dealt with more logically when one is in a state where more intrinsic intelligence is available to speed problem solving by making better choices quicker.
Can You Help Me?
The beneficial results that I’ve been seeing with H.E.R.O. , over all the years I’ve been working with clients who have completed it, have been strictly anecdotal and so I’d like to take it a step up.
If anyone reading this has (or knows of anyone) who has access to the methods and means to do a controlled study into how H.E.R.O. might affect DEHA levels (and therefore better brain health and lower stress effects through what I now call “Positive Immunity”) I would be very open to talking with them.
