The passive aggressive nature of evil as it seeps into your thought process.
Jealousy, paranoia, distrust, whatever form of this evil manifests in your brain, in your thought process, is pure evil and it will destroy you and everyone around you. Eventually, if one does not raise their level of self-awareness, they will witness it stealing everything including friends, loved ones, and their life. I am speaking first hand as someone who has a fair amount of flashback paranoia from past relationships in which I have been betrayed, as well as from bad drug experiences when I was a much younger man. These past experiences affected me so deeply remain in my brain as fairly dormant but easily re-activated neuropathways that fire up in a split second by succumbing to certain audio and/or visual triggers. Neuropathways are the key to ridding your life of jealousy, paranoia, and distrust, knowing about them and how to manage their activity can also help you in starting your life over and remembering to brush your teeth in the morning.
What is a neuropathway?
Neurons are tiny nerve cells that transmit thoughts or nerve signals to and from the brain. The pathway along which these signals travels through the neurons (nerve cells) of the brain is a neuropathway. If you think about the specific types of thoughts you have within just a very short moment, you will notice that a majority of time is spent thinking about similar things. This is due to neuropaths and how they function.
This can be one reason why some people find it so difficult to effectively meditate. Even those who find it difficult to meditate, if they were to keep practicing a very specific method of meditation, guess what will result? They will eventually create a brand new neuropathway! Each time this person tries to meditate, the neuropathway will get bigger and bigger, allowing it to carry a larger collection of neurons or thoughts. Like a hard drive or a hard disk in a computer, the brain will burn-in a new neuropathway which is for the most part permanent in its existence but ever-changing in its level of activity, size and shape.
If we are constantly thinking of how we don’t have enough money, then the neuropathway we create is a powerful electro-active signal of thoughts and habits which coax us to always do things that leave us a bit on the poor side of life. Read this sentence again, and again until there is a permanent neuropathway in your brain that makes you aware of this behavior.
How you can change unwanted or detrimental neuropathways
Just by doing things differently and repeatedly, is the quick way to answer this question. It’s like creating a new habit, you do it repeatedly and if the end result feels good then chances are you’ll create a new neuropathway. Some habits cannot be changed without pattern interruption. This is where RET comes in.
REM sleep naturally processes all the input taken in during waking hours. It also processes all of our thoughts and files them into our memory. We do REM sleep 25 minutes of a 90 minute sleep cycle over and over all through the night. If the perceived input has been life threatening that message in the neuropathway stays there and the body keeps processing that message and related incidents over and over. For example, I may be trapped in a relationship and on that neuropathway I am also trapped in a car, a box, and in the birth canal causing me to feel like I have to get away or I am stuck. Neuropathways have many branches.
