(2 min audio on Medium @FLO Mystic) I often start this highly reflective writing with, “I don’t know where to begin,” as I feel flooded with delight and satisfaction, I almost feel clueless. Quite opposite as I have much to say. I’m realizing how powerful these chemical releases in my brain system truly are. I would know, I’ve been addicted to substances and certainly have abused its use.
In my perception, the difference is that I’m not spending monetary value or ingesting physical drugs. My brain is releasing chemicals and I’m experiencing the effects of delight, bliss, satisfaction, and joy.
I just finished listening to Dr. Andrew Huberman interviewed by Lewis Howes on YouTube (hyperlinked). I do feel an immediate shift and switching gears in my internal landscape and system. Fascinating Wisdom and Intelligence my biology is. Fascinating Wisdom and Intelligence the human biology is.
I certainly will now be an intentional driver of my subjective dopamine and serotonin release. Choosing where to attach my dopamine release to experience sustained motivation and drive in the journey and along the path of my destination. As well as the awareness when I am feeling bored in the process of my ultimate desired outcome and gain.
Tho I don’t have control of the material manifestation of my desire, I can take control of my internal brain chemical systems and their release in such a way that it supports me en route to my destination and hydrate me along the path.
I love learning that it’s not “gratitude” itself that is the magic. Instead, what is happening in the brain and being released in the practice of appreciation of my resources in the now is the key to my ultimate success. It is what allows me to continue to pursue an outcome in the future and be satisfied with what is here and now.
It is not the study of history alone, nor the exploration of the mystery of the unknown. Instead, science merge the two worlds of perception.
