The power of prayer
works just like the placebo effect.
And the cited study is based on secret prayer;
not acknowledged prayer, in positive social connection.
The number one source of human happiness is social connection IN HUMAN EMOTIONAL connection In ways of ‘oxytocin nurturing neurohormones’ and bonding, as well, through mirror neurons and affective empathy.
Not all human beings share these attributes evenly and that does influence the placebo effect as well; as science shows that only about a third of folks benefit from the placebo effect.
And if one wants to go back to New Testament scripture to get this stuff all figured; even if the words attributed to Jesus are not his; he makes it clear that his power to heal does not work for people who do not heal themselves through the real emotions of faith, belief, hope; which are precisely what is the healing effect and affect, per the PLACEBO effect. Stress kills; yes, that is an established scientific fact now; fear and anxiety is the father of stress; positive energy is just positive emotions and folks who gather together and share the emotional contagion of love thrive as opposed to psychopathic leaning minds who cannot drink the TRUE ‘holy’ water of human emotions AKA heart expressed in cognitive empathy ways of words, song, dance, etc. AKA SPIRIT; FOR FOLKS who have a soul; otherwise known as a mind and body in balance with emotions properly working to connect to other human beings to truly thrive as humanity; and not an approximation of a zombie or a robot; who is separated from both their emotions and their body; living in a head of textbook or science; instead of REAL FLESH AND BLOOD human connecting life now.
My doctors still cannot explain how I healed myself of 19 medical disorders without their help; and can now parallel leg press 930 LBS with my arms raised in the air 25 times; like no male on YouTube can do at any age; or level of anabolic steroids; as opposed to my level of naturally occurring testosterone at 221 off the chart of low, of a 75 plus year old man. However; my doctor works by medical science; and not through the power of belief, faith and hope; as well as the physical intelligence of TAI CHI like movement for greater balance, agility, emotional regulation, sensory integration; and greater cognitive executive functioning in focus and short term working memory. But here’s the deal; I have ZERO NEGATIVE EMOTIONS; ZERO STRESS; AND THE Power of CHI, which is JUST a metaphor for precisely THAT; IN THE WORLD OF FOLKS WHO HAVE not yet attained ‘NEO’ status; it is a world of thriving that does not exist; when the placebo effect becomes all the time now with human relative free will; GOD exists ALL THE TIME NOW as the FORCE of the INTERDEPENDENT RELATIONSHIP OF ALL THAT IS in balance; Humans are one of the few animals that are WHACKY ENOUGH to let illusions of a whacky cultural environment devolve them through epigenetics in just one life time; as functionally disabled creatures who live their life out of mind and body balance in an almost constant state of fight or flight stress; or dismiss the flesh and blood necessity of human connection for online activities, instead; even when common sense dictates that human connection for a social animal; any normal social animal is what success in social survival is all about; GO by the rules of Mother Nature AKA God or pay the consequences as that NATURE IS MANIFEST AS HUMAN NATURE; most doctors do not have a frigging clue about this; as their job is to prescribe medicines and rarely do they get to the simple root cause of the FACT THAT MOST HUMANS JUST HAVE NO MIND AND BODY BALANCE.
THAT’S too simple for most doctors to even fathom; as of course in life spent in mechanical cognition; neither do they; and it shows in how they age at incredible rates from human stress, as only an incredibly blind animal for common sense would subject themselves to the stress of what doctors endure everyday; until they ruin their own health along
But it pays well; and most humans are under the illusion that money brings any happiness at all; when the flesh and blood really hits the roads of stress in life.
God is NOW; GOD is Nature; It’s as simple as that; GOD is the Interconnecting Interdependent Relationship of all THAT IS; THE GREAtest Human cultural and or religious illusion is separation from THAT; AND CONNECTION TO THAT takes a life of excellence in practicing mind and body balance; as freedom with GOD is neither free or FAIR; AT LEAST IN ONE LIFETIME OF EPIGENETICALLY DEVOLVING FUNCTIONALLY DISABLED HUMAN BEINGS WHO FRIGGING DON’T EVEN UNDERTAND WHAT THEY OR GOD EVEN IS.
That is beyond sad and stupidity; there are no words to describe it; other than separation from GOD; FOR THOSE who have a clue of what that even is per forgetting what life even is as HUMAN BEING; A CHILD OF GOD.
“So you’re saying that god is exactly as powerful as a sugar pill?”
Only if you are suggesting that a sugar pill is the emotion of belief.
A sugar pill is a symbol for faith, hope, and belief; same as Yeshua or Jesus.
Emotions mean EMOTING HUMAN ACTION, friend; and faith, hope, and belief are powerful human emotions that emote human action; but only for folks who experience the spectrum of those emotions ranging from almost nULL AND VOID to a full rainbow of the TERM LOVE.
Sadly or not; some folks
do not literally or metaphorically get that as religion and science adequately evidences as same; science is just a scribe of GOD; and the scientific method cannot repeat the emotional experiment that even science shows controls rational human decisions; to understand human nature and use it to one’s advantage is to thrive; but yes, it takes a practice of mind and body balance in lifelong excellence to get one there; and any real YOGI can show ya how that’s done friend; and even science reports their excellence in practicing human relative free will; in ways of regulating emotions, and integrating senses down to controlling body temperature and brain waves from Alpha to creative THETA.
THAT’S HOW I PRESS 930 LBS ON A PARALEL LEG PRESS, my friend, with my arms raised in the air, twenty-five times with the ease of a butterfly singing a song of fluttering flight on terrestrial land; machine with 20 loaded 45LB plates and 30LBS for the weight lifting mechanism or not; and how I muster up the ease of focus and cognitive executive functioning to write an epic free verse poetic expression of 11,135 words in speeds of typing up to 130 words a minute with the assistance of my natural occurring reading levels of 10 to 15 times faster than the average human being; the difference with me and the Jesus of the Old TESTAMENT IS I CAN PROVE IT, BABY; AS science and technology provides the empirical tools to document all real human miracles, as they happen in real time now.
Anyway; if no other human being ever does what I can do, baby; it is simply ’cause they never believe they can and never just do it; like me and Nike just does with the help of GOD; as the Nature of GOD in much greater human potential exists for those who frigging understand and use their human nature to their advantage in just doing it NOW..:)
“Aghogday’s ‘god’ is essentially Pantheistic.”
YES, essentially; but one will have to add some metaphysical flavor through literal metaphors of the quantum human mind and body unleashed and released in balance to come close to get to the place in state of mind AND BODY BALANCE; I live friend; ALWAYS NOW
It is a state of mind and body within; not something anyone can purchase with dollars or grades in school.
And truly nothing new; eastern philosophies have been reaping the benefits of mind and body balance in artful activities for thousands of years in monasteries; but no; no lessons for me; I find all my answers within by looking to nature; above so below; inside outside; all around; totally innate instinctual and intuitive; in an ongoing practice of human excellence; and that is what I mean by the metaphor for Quantum human mind and body balance unleashed and released; religions TRULY JUST do a big talk; but no action of practice to do much of anything but TALK.
Prayer is cool; but action is where the big RESULTS COME..:)
