Self Development Essay

"Human Self Development" by Vexen Crabtree (2002)

That body and mind are intrinsically linked. I believe (it seems obvious to me) that also our mental state affects the effectiveness of our bodies, and that positive thinking is a physical boost to our bodies. Medically, psychosomatic effects are known to be especially linked to our immune system: a depressed person will become ill more often and be poorer at fighting illness.

Definitely! I've seen for myself how ill health and chronic pain can affect the mind and emotions, and to some extent, vice versa. However, one thing that can't be overlooked is that often a true MEDICAL cause is found for any particular 'psychosomatic' illness, and once it's treated, the mental/emotional effects can lessen. Granted, not everything can be treated adequately and certainly we don't have cures for everything, but I think there is something to be said for keeping the mind-body connection in mind with regard to disease.

And I think some people just really don't WANT to get better. They become too comfortable with their pain/illness and experience secondary gains which find a level of convenience that can stunt the desire to be healthy again, sadly enough.

Meanwhile, your pages certainly offer an abundance of food for thought! :)

Yay, thanks for your comments!

No problem. :) Thanks for giving me interesting stuff to comment on!

Great funny site, Vexen!

Hey, I've just got to tell you I absolutely love your site, it's got so much truth and humor in it. Well, I'm Wiccan, and I honour the Black Mother, Kali Ma; and She is all about the destruction of ego/pretense, as well as Creation/Passion. So, I found your Satanism section very enlightening, as you have written things that are intelligent in reasoning. You're links on monotheism were good as well, god, I hate the whole "Do this, this and this, and believe in this guy" dogma of monothiesm; it's lame and it's an attitude needed for people who posses no independence, spine or wisdom! I don't hate Xians, mind you, they're generally a tolerant bunch; as are most types of religious/spiritual people...

Keep it up, Vexen. :)

Re: Great funny site, Vexen!

Wow it's a breath of fresh air to have someone recognize the humour, it gets overlooked! Thanks :-)

Er... treat according to doctors advice, of course, they study intensively and know a vast amount about what drugs are apropriate than us mere mortals.

Re: The Questions Continue

Mental disease is largely misunderstood, but, doctors are generally pretty good at not just giving drugs to people unless they know the cause; it's not just a remedy for malaise.

Great Post! It helped me to make sense of some of the issues with the subject. I find your style very informative and can’t wait to read more. There is another good blog on the law of attraction that I was going through some time back.

heya!

I read your page. Only the last line sounds so depressive. Maybe cause it is terrible truth. `it is up to yourself to make it happen`. I know that life isn´t always that easy, and for me it isn´t easy at all. I know that only I can change it. but... how, is the question. You write like you´ve been trough a lot. Am I right?

This evening I noticed that friend are nothing worth for me. I think I was building a wall for people. It means I have my limits in trusting people and I don't care if a friend hates me or not. I don't really understand why I don't care... maybe I do, but at the same time being scared for a feeling. Hmm... maybe I think too much. Always questions in my head, thoughts i'm wondering about, etc. The schrink said that: I am a thinker and if I confuse myself or if I only wonder the whole day, that it will fight against me. and make me depressive. And once and again: How do you get happy then?! I'm not asking for answers or anything... just for letting my thouths fly over a website. and no one knows who I am in real life.
