NEUROTRANSMITTERS-FLOATING KEYS TO CREATING THE LIFE DESIRED by Cathy D. Slaght
What makes us tick is various manifestations of our biochemistry. In other words, how the neurons in our brains communicate.
But something has gone haywire. Here we are, designed to live in bliss - YES THIS IS TRUE – but, instead, increasing numbers are miserable- searching for happiness but not finding it.
This search has led us to- among other things- increased debt, obesity, depression, addiction… perhaps due to an imbalance in biochemistry caused by a power struggle between two neurotransmitters, serotonin and dopamine.
Serotonin controls happiness/contentment, dopamine controls pleasure/reward. It turns out that the modern- day diet has DECREASED serotonin and INCREASED dopamine. AND, dopamine can WIPE OUT serotonin! (Maybe this isn't the exact terminology, I'm no biochemist, but you get the point.)
So, we search, SPEND, go from one thing to the next- but are unhappy, overweight, lonely, addicted... bitter about it...unappreciative of what we DO have...
We can solve this problem- and need to, obviously. There are 3 steps to solving ANY problem. First, it must be acknowledged. Second, there must be a learning process that, quite possibly, will contradict present belief systems. (think about this- it’s likely present belief systems got us IN the situation) Third- we must understand that WE ARE IN CONTROL OF OUR OWN BODIES. No helplessness allowed.
So, this might be the thought process:
For the next few days I'm going to see what I can find on this. For those who don't like to examine belief systems, (most of us) there's just one question- in this present system- and that's what it is, a SYSTEM -
ARE YOU HAPPY AND CONTENTED, OR NOT?
