Favorite Jeff Brown quotes

Favorite Jeff Brown quotes "Some of us cannot preserve our dignity and well-being if we remain connected to one or both of our parents. This is not to say that we don’t do our best to heal and preserve those relationships, but sometimes it is simply not possible and it is not healthy to continue. Unfortunately, many who have made the brave, necessary decision to disconnect are met with a shaming, shunning response from others. [...]

RQ, IQ & EQ – redefining smartness

RQ, IQ & EQ – Redefining "Smartness" For many decades how "smart" you were was defined by how intelligent you were based on an IQ test. However many people have known that intelligence tests are very lacking in certain regards. Often people with extremely high IQs have poor social skills.

Denial of own emotions = denial of others emotions

Denial of own emotions = denial of others emotions "the more educated you are, the more entrenched you are in your denial. It's not that education leads to more openness, education leads to less openness. Because what it does is that the intellectual weapons that you gain and sharpen in the course of your post graduate education, actually allow you to use your weapon and marshal it to the service of your denial...but the denial [...]

Reincarnation explained – the Idiot & the Genius and why suffering is chosen as a temporary experience

Your species as a species includes the idiot and the genius, the stupid and the wise, the athletic, the deformed, the beautiful and the ugly, and all variations in between. There are genetic cultures operating, then, of literally infinite variety, and they each have their place and their reason, and they each fit into the overall picture—not only of man's reality but of the planet's reality, including all of nature.

After-Death experience of the Divine by William James

Nowhere have I encountered the furnishings of a conventional heaven, or glimpsed the face of God. On the other hand, certainly I dwell in a psychological heaven by earth's standards, for everywhere I sense a presence, or atmosphere, or atmospheric presence that is well-intentioned, gentle yet powerful, and all-knowing. This seems to be a psychological presence of such stunning parts, however, that I can point to no one place and identify it as being there in contrast to being someplace else.

Protestantism & Freud – the disjointed roots of America by William James

Freud's emotionalism gave me concern for I considered him somewhat of a religious fanatic, operating outside of religion's conventional context. In many ways he was a shaman, born in the "wrong" country, twice as jealous of his own "masculine characteristics" because he sensed within himself the "perverse" intuitive rushes and psychic leanings that he feared and believed could undermine the personal authority of the ego and the mass authority of the state.
