October: Brenner-ism or Treat!

by admin on October 2nd, 2016 at 2:40 pm

If Energy cannot be created or destroyed then birth and death are illusions. Where’s the fear?

What is more important to you, “who” you are or “what” you do or is there no difference? There is no correct answer! Know thyself without judgement or comparison.

If life is the ultimate gift, do we understand life by dissecting it or by living it?

Love is like a Bunson.

Quiet Your Soul with August Brenner-isms

by admin on August 1st, 2016 at 2:00 pm

If Self-love is lost when we are compared or compare ourselves to another, then how much suffering is needed before that love is reclaimed?

We are all healers. What in your ancestral past are you here to heal?

What quiets you soul? Where within you is peace?

How has childhood pain shaped your life to serve others at the expense of your self? And, can you love yourself as clearly as you love others?

July: Independence and Brenner-isms

“If you can’t give someone a nickel you don’t have, can you give someone love if it’s not within you.”

“If life is the the ultimate gift, do we understand life by dissecting it or by living it?”

“Since there is no greater gift in life than life itself; what, if anything, is preventing you from living it? If not now, when?”

“What If the meaning of life is to experience the experience, then there are no bad experiences.”

“A physician’s training is not complete until it integrates the wisdom of his or her patients. I feel like the ancient mariner. I have taken a long, stormy, forty-year journey in search of the medical Holy Grail: what makes people sick and what makes people well? This journey has taken me through traditional medical training, an obstetrics and gynecology practice, an American Cancer Society Fellowship, a doctorate in psychology, counseling the dying, and the holistic health movement: hypnosis, acupuncture, meditation, and shamanism. Throughout, the albatross around my neck has been the contained wisdom I have learned from my patients, mentors, and my own aloneness. It is now time to share that wisdom. Although this book traces the thread of my journey through the healing arts, Buddha in the Waiting Room is written for you and in honor of those who taught me the truth about health. Paradoxically, most of my teachers were ill. However, despite their apparent physical state, these individuals were vibrant, wise beyond their years, and very much alive – even those diagnosed with terminal illnesses. They defined the meaning of health. They knew something that I had to learn; despite their physical state they taught me the art of healthy living. Each of them was a Buddha to me, a source of pure wisdom. Other Buddhas in this book are those mentors and events that shaped my awareness concerning health, illness, and the human potential.”

Brenner-isms in the Merry, Merry Month of June

Dr BWhat quiets your soul? Where within you is peace?

How can we justify killing in the name of God?

Can you love yourself as clearly as you love others?

What is more important to you, “who” you are or “what” you do or is there no difference? There is no correct answer! Know thyself without judgment or comparison.

Can fear be the “unlived” part of the self? What are you afraid to live? If not now, when?

If Life itself is the ultimate gift, do we understand life by dissecting it or by living it?

If you are born without generational bias, would you create your own?

If the need for more is inborn, will you ever have enough?

When is your more, less?

If Self- love is lost when we are compared or compare ourselves to another, then how much suffering is needed before that love is reclaimed?

The mind created difference by seeing life as outside the illusion of self.

Why is it so difficult for religions, races & nations to simply say, “I’m sorry” as an act of reparation?

How has childhood pain shaped your life to serve others at the expense of your self?

We are all healers. What in your ancestral past are you here to heal?

If our purpose is to heal the past and provide for the yet unborn, why is it so difficult to realize that you are doing what you’re intended to do?

Does one find themselves by following or living?

Our foremothers and fathers had to do horrible things to survive, do we?

Brenner-isms, the IV: April

The Epigenetic Phenomenon is the scientific proof that environmental factors such as diet, radiation and the emotional experiences of prior generations can effect the expression of genes and the biochemistry of the brain.

Psychology is the future of Preventative Medicine.

The result of the earliest human experiences of epigenetics led to fears of difference and over millennia gave birth to tribes, religions, nations, prejudice, racism, hate and wars.

Coping skills to dull the pain of the unmet needs save us in childhood yet create the same pain in adulthood.

To eliminate the prejudice and racism of the epigenetic past and present demands awareness of how our past once saved us, shaped our present and now has become destructive.

Fear birthed stress with the need to form relationships, groups, religions, nations, prejudice, racism and wars. ALL the above were coping skills for a young species. It ALL must stop for our Collective Survival and collective adulthood.

To eliminate the prejudice and racism of the epigenetic past and present demands awareness of how our past once saved us, shaped our present and now has become destructive.

The present is an illusion created by the non-existent past and projected into the non- existent future.

Partnership is meeting one’s own needs.

To heal is a state of expansion.

The question is more significant than the answer.

If Life itself is the ultimate gift, do we understand life by dissecting it or by living it?

Love is letting go of judgment and comparison.

If our observations are altered by the generational past, what does the present look like?

Brenner-isms 3: March

brennerEpigentics, the study of those environmental forces and trans-generational experiences that effect the expression of genes without effecting gene sequencing, has shown that generation after generation has been born with racism and prejudice.  Born of color into an environment that is reticent to support your birth rights can only lead to suppression and hardships.  The long term impact of Epigenetic is the source of the hate and violence found within such societies which stifle the creativity, equality and humanism of our most vulnerable populations.

The most precious gift in life is life itself.

The present is the present.

Love is a dance between togetherness and aloneness.

The present and the series of choices made within those moments are the creators of our unique story.

Our story is an illusion of the mind. Choice is the only reality.

We are no more than particles within a conscious organism.

Fear, judgment and comparison are our collective cancer.

Love is letting go of judgment and comparison.

Love “does” have conditions.

It is to do No Harm.  Love demands permission.

It takes two to say “Yes” or one to say “No” to have an honoring relationship.

The gift of a meaningful relationship is to individually uncover and heal unfinished business, as well as that of your ancestors.

Individual therapy, pre-marital therapy, and perinatal therapy are keys to prevent illness. Unresolved stress sets the stage for dis-ease.

Dr. Paul Brenner has been posting words of wisdom on his Facebook page. We have collected these Brenner-isms to inspire you in the New Year.
 

 Trying to get it right gets it wrong.

 The greatest gift in life is life itself.

 As soon as we see anything else in life as other than ourselves we become separated from life.

 Life is a shared creation. Everything exists in relationship.

 Who we are is far more important than what we do.

 Who is our commonality. Our doing is our separation.

 Illness can be a friend. It is a time to search within and ask, “Why now?”

 Chronic illness may be asking for transformation.

 Health does not mean freedom from illness. Health is the understanding and acceptance of the life process.

 Stress can shift balanced health to dis-health.

 What are you getting out of illness that is not obtainable in health?

 Psychology is the future of Preventative Medicine.

 If I’m not you, who am I?

 Replace discomforting tapes of emotional pain and suffering by rekindling those innate tapes of contentment and gratitude.

 llness is not the enemy. Illness is a call for movement, transformation.

 If I were alone long enough, I would create you as my best friend. You are my mirror of my disowned self. I can only find me through you. You are part of my wholeness.

 We are no more than particles within a conscious organism.

 Any belief that demeans another life form demeans self.

Dr. Paul Brenner has been posting words of wisdom on his Facebook page. We have collected these Brenner-isms to inspire you in the New Year.

 

 

 

  • Pure love for others comes from the overflow of love for self and so asks for nothing in return. Such love leads to no-self.
  • You cannot give another what is not within yourself.
  • I am that other, I am.
  • Life abhors constancy.
  • Illness is not the enemy. Illness is a call for movement, transformation.
  • The only one who can save you is you.
  • The only one who can meet your unmet needs is you.
  • Your gift to life is found in your childhood emotional pain.
  • Psychology is Medicine. To truly be present is to erase the past.
  • No thought is worth thinking about.
  • The unmet needs of childhood become a part of our definition of love.
  • A ‘no’ overrules a ‘yes.’
  • The opposite of your cherished values also have values.
