[A quote from “How God changes your brain” by Andrew Newberg, M.D. and Mark Robert Waldman BallantineBooks.com Page 141]

Unfortunately, as far as the brain is concerned, negative speech has a stronger effect than positive speech. Negative remarks and memories are more strongly encoded in the brain, and they are the most difficult memories to eradicate. In fact, simply being around negative people will make you more prejudiced, because listening to negative opinions can easily undermine your positive opinions about virtually anything. In essence, our brains are designed to mimic the emotional expressions of others. Not only does this allow us to feel what others feel but it causes what is known as “emotional contagion,” a universal neurological process whereby subjective feelings are transferred to other people and spread through social groups. So how fast does it take the brain to react to another person’s emotion? When you see an angry expression, it takes less than one second for the brain to respond with fear. [End of quote.]

The more we dwell on anything negative the more negative we become, for we begin to filter things through our own subjective assumptions and suppositions.

Preaching of the Gospel to an unbeliever must not come with judgment.

When Jesus entered the Nazareth Synagogue, on Sabbath, and cited Isaiah 61, He stopped right before the next sentence, which dealt with vengeance and judgment. He dwelled on grace which He brought. John said, [John 1:17] For the Law was given through Moses; grace and truth were realized through Jesus Christ. Truth is never bombastic, or forceful, neither explosive. The Truth (Jesus) said "I Am gentle and humble in heart" (Matthew 11:29). We are still in the blessed dispensation of God's grace. Like bees to the honey we must gravitate to grace and love, which is rooted in peace.

We do not hoard into heaven people who get scared of hell as if by being terrorized by God with grotesque images of hell. Imagine, one arrives at the Pearly Gates gasping for breath, wiping off sweat of his face saying, "Boy, I made it by the skin of my teeth…I accepted Jesus… I almost went to hell…" Yet, the Perfect Love - our heavenly Father - casts out all fear; and those who still fear have not been perfected in God's love.

[1 John 4:18-19] There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love. 19We love, because He first loved us.

So, there is the perfecting process of love. It's journey during which all fear just goes away; and then confidence, trust and tranquility begins to dominate our lives. So take this journey. 

Therefore, God does not draw those scared of eternal damnation to His Son. He draws His lost sons and lost sheep in order that they might be found because exactly for this reason He had sent His Son. Once you are found and know who you are there will be joy in heaven, feast and celebration. Know God's heart, and not just fragments of His Word.  

This is the system of the Kenite and we've been in it since Noah. What can you do about it? Kenites will do what comes to them naturally. They are the tares. Can you uproot them now? Hear the word of Wisdom.

‘Allow both to grow together until the harvest; and in the time of the harvest I will say to the reapers, [Matthew 13:30] “First gather up the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them up; but gather the wheat into my barn.”’”

[Matthew 13:38] The field is the world; and as for the good seed, these are the sons of the kingdom; and the tares are the evil sons.

We are the seed we must produce fruits in keeping with being God's seed - mixed with the neutral filed. We grow side by side, but the tares shall be burned up completely and be no more. The Field, in which God's treasure is hidden, which Jesus paid the price and legally bought (the world is the field), then He had reached down and found us - His treasure.

Don't wander in circles anymore. Know who you are. To some it's been given, but to some its not been given (Jesus said). Be humble enough to acknowledge God's choices for this hour and rejoice in His gift.

Codependency manifests itself in an overcompensating for some misbehavior, or some evil committed in the past to - or - by the person. What have I done to provoke it feelings come to plague many people. People who were abused as children are scarred with guilt as if they have deserved this sort of punishment, yet no child ever deserves any punishment. That which already resides in the adults makes their children prone to do what parents hate to see; for too often it reminds them of their ways. One sign of this particular problem we find here. Some call it the original sin, yet it is in fact exactly as David said it.

[Psalm 51:5] (David’s statement:) “Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin my mother conceived me.”

David’s first child with Bathsheba was the fruit of their adultery and that child died because David killed his mother’s husband Uriah. Solomon, Bathsheba’s son was the greatest king of peace and he carried hers and David’s genes, but he sort of managed it by ‘legalizing’ his sexual desires. When one loses cool head to a sexual urge; then the frontal lobe reverts to the Limbic Brain and the “Nephesh Bahamit” the animal soul. (“The More Excellent Way” book explains it much better).

Codependency works on this bouncing back and forth between those two areas. On one hand we are selfish and protective of something we call as our own, like the territorial animals do, but then we switch to the Frontal Lobe and try to be altruistic and benevolent.  We would like to stay there, but in time, after repeated pattings on our backs, we develop victim-or-saint-like disposition, "no one helps me, no one does what I do," etc. I, for one, have experienced bouts of this strange malady. “I believe that I’ve been cured by now (humor)…”

When you dwell in the harmonious peace found in wisdom, which is between those two brain areas, and use self-discipline by keeping that stance forever then that person you have aspired to be; will be-come a reality. It is God’s love that He teaches us these things today; no more excuses for being ignorant. In that ignorance “the original sin” doctrine was developed, “eternal damnation of hell” and many other strange doctrines that only take God’s wonderful peace away from us. You have the choice to dwell in a dogma or be free from it, but then you must fill your mind with God’s wisdom, love joy and peace.  You can stay in a mediocre outdated foreign mind rather then the one God develops for you by giving you grace after grace. He loves you so much that He almost can’t wait to see you as that bright rising star.
