Q&A with Tim on Wealth and Money, Book Recommendations, Advice on Taking Advice, C.S. Lewis, Relationships, Behavior Change and Self-Awareness, Why We Are All (Mostly) Making It Up as We Go, and Much More | Brought to you by MANSCAPED premium grooming products, 80,000 Hours free career advice for high impact and doing good in the world, and Helix Sleep premium mattresses. Welcome to another episode of The Tim Ferriss Show, where it is usually my job to sit down with world-class performers of all different types to tease out the habits, routines, favorite books, and so on that you can apply and test in your own life. This time, we have a slightly different format, and I'm the guest. As some of you know, to celebrate the 15th anniversary of The 4-Hour Workweek, which was first published on April 24th, 2007 (4/24/07), I signed 424 copies of the book. As thousands of you threw your hat in the ring to win a signed copy, I wanted to do something special for all the entrants. So, I invited those folks to a private YouTube Q&A. This episode is the recording of that session. I answered many questions on a variety of topics, including startup investments, IFS therapy, my views on wealth and money, C.S. Lewis, lower-back pain, solitary time and its challenges, lessons from Kevin Kelly, books I'm currently reading, maintaining relationships, Japan travel tips, from whom to take advice (and how to evaluate advice), self-awareness, behavior change, my current alcohol consumption (or lack thereof), and much, much more.I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.*This episode is brought to you by MANSCAPED! MANSCAPED is bringing you the total package to ensure your package is the perfect package. No, I didn't come up with that line… but I tested and loved their products, so I can vouch that I'm still intact and ready for my centerfold shoot. Was it scary? Yes. Was it worth it? Also yes. My girlfriend makes the effort, so I figured it was only fair. MANSCAPED is the most effective way to keep clean, pristine, and looking like a dream through the sweatiest summer months.The Perfect Package 4.0 is the ultimate grooming kit that includes everything you need for optimal below-the waist hygiene. Use their precision-engineered Lawn Mower 4.0—yes, “Lawn Mower”—electric trimmer to remove excess and avoid the dreaded swamp crotch. Feel confident in trimming hard-to-reach areas with MANSCAPED's SkinSafe technology, which helps reduce the risk of nicks and snags. It's time to take care of yourself; time for some basic landscaping. Get 20% off and free shipping with the code TIMTIM at Manscaped.com.*This episode is also brought to you by 80,000 Hours! You have roughly 80,000 hours in your career. That's 40 hours a week, 50 weeks a year for 40 years. They add up and are one of your biggest opportunities, if not the biggest opportunity, to make a positive impact on the world. Some of the best strategies, best research, and best tactical advice I've seen and heard come from 80,000 Hours, a nonprofit co-founded by Will MacAskill, an Oxford philosopher and a popular past guest on this podcast.If you're looking to make a big change to your direction, address pressing global problems from your current job, or if you're just starting out or maybe starting a new chapter and not sure which path to pursue, 80,000 Hours can help. Join their free newsletter, and they'll send you an in-depth guide for free that will help you identify which global problems are most pressing and where you can have the biggest impact personally.

Levels is making glucose monitoring simple, helping you see how food affects your health through real-time feedback. I started tracking my glucose years ago to learn more about what I should and shouldn't be eating (including quantities, time of day, etc.), based on objective data from my own, unique physiology. Keeping my blood sugar stable is critical to my daily and long-term health and performance goals. Furthermore, poor glucose control is associated with a number of chronic conditions like diabetes, Alzheimer's disease, heart disease, and obesity. It's important.If you're interested in learning more about Levels and trying a CGM yourself, go to Levels.link/Tim.*For show notes and past guests on The Tim Ferriss Show, please visit tim.blog/podcast.For deals from sponsors of The Tim Ferriss Show, please visit tim.blog/podcast-sponsorsSign up for Tim's email newsletter (5-Bullet Friday) at tim.blog/friday.For transcripts of episodes, go to tim.blog/transcripts.Discover Tim's books: tim.blog/books.Follow Tim:Twitter: twitter.com/tferriss Instagram: instagram.com/timferrissYouTube: youtube.com/timferrissFacebook: facebook.com/timferriss LinkedIn: linkedin.com/in/timferrissPast guests on The Tim Ferriss Show include Jerry Seinfeld, Hugh Jackman, Dr. Jane Goodall, LeBron James, Kevin Hart, Doris Kearns Goodwin, Jamie Foxx, Matthew McConaughey, Esther Perel, Elizabeth Gilbert, Terry Crews, Sia, Yuval Noah Harari, Malcolm Gladwell, Madeleine Albright, Cheryl Strayed, Jim Collins, Mary Karr, Maria Popova, Sam Harris, Michael Phelps, Bob Iger, Edward Norton, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Neil Strauss, Ken Burns, Maria Sharapova, Marc Andreessen, Neil Gaiman, Neil de Grasse Tyson, Jocko Willink, Daniel Ek, Kelly Slater, Dr. Peter Attia, Seth Godin, Howard Marks, Dr. Brené Brown, Eric Schmidt, Michael Lewis, Joe Gebbia, Michael Pollan, Dr. Jordan Peterson, Vince Vaughn, Brian Koppelman, Ramit Sethi, Dax Shepard, Tony Robbins, Jim Dethmer, Dan Harris, Ray Dalio, Naval Ravikant, Vitalik Buterin, Elizabeth Lesser, Amanda Palmer, Katie Haun, Sir Richard Branson, Chuck Palahniuk, Arianna Huffington, Reid Hoffman, Bill Burr, Whitney Cummings, Rick Rubin, Dr. Vivek Murthy, Darren Aronofsky, and many more.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Welcome to another episode of The Tim Ferriss Show, where it is my job to deconstruct world-class performers to tease out the routines, habits, et cetera that you can apply to your own life. This is a special inbetweenisode, which serves as a recap of the episodes from last month. It features a short clip from each conversation in one place so you can easily jump around to get a feel for the episode and guest.Based on your feedback, this format has been tweaked and improved since the first recap episode.

Tim Ferriss and Noah Feldman on The War in Ukraine (Recap and Predictions), The Machiavelli of Maryland, Best Books to Understand Geopolitics, The Battles for Free Speech on Social Media, Metaverse Challenges, and More | Brought to you by MANSCAPED premium grooming products, Athletic Greens all-in-one nutritional supplement, and Allform premium, modular furniture. More on all three below. I rarely cover current events on this podcast, but this is a new experiment.To avoid overwhelm, I do not track the news 24/7 with doom scrolling. Rather, I depend on conversations with my smartest friends to find the signal in the noise. The following conversation with Noah Feldman (@NoahRFeldman) is an example of such a conversation, very similar to what we would have offline, and I wanted to share it with you. I learned a ton and changed my thinking a lot, which I always do.Noah Feldman is a Harvard professor, ethical philosopher and advisor, public intellectual, religious scholar and historian, and author of 10 books, including his latest, The Broken Constitution: Lincoln, Slavery, and the Refounding of America. You can find my interview with him at tim.blog/noah.Noah is the founder of Ethical Compass, which helps clients like Facebook and eBay improve ethical decision-making by creating and implementing new governance solutions. Noah conceived and designed the Facebook Oversight Board and continues to advise Facebook on ethics and governance issues.Feldman is host of the Deep Background podcast, a policy and public affairs columnist for Bloomberg Opinion, and a former contributing writer for The New York Times. He served as senior constitutional advisor to the Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq and subsequently advised members of the Iraqi Governing Council on the drafting of Iraq's interim constitution.He earned his A.B. summa cum laude from Harvard, finishing first in his class. Selected as a Rhodes Scholar, he earned a DPhil from Oxford University, writing his dissertation on Aristotle's Ethics. He received his JD from Yale Law School and clerked for Justice David Souter of the US Supreme Court.He is the author of 10 books, including Divided by God: America's Church-State Problem — and What We Should Do About It; What We Owe Iraq: War and the Ethics of Nation Building; Cool War: The United States, China, and the Future of Global Competition; Scorpions: The Battles and Triumphs of FDR's Great Supreme Court Justices; and The Three Lives of James Madison: Genius, Partisan, President.Please let me know what you think of this experimental format by sending me feedback on Twitter @tferriss. Do you love it? Do you hate it? Have suggestions for improvement? The usual long-form interviews with evergreen questions will still be the default and bread and butter of this podcast, but if you like this, I could see doing more of them, perhaps once a month or once every two months. It's just an easy way to get caught up without drowning in news.Please enjoy!NOTE: This episode was recorded on June 22nd.*This episode is brought to you by MANSCAPED!

Interior Integration for Catholics
Trauma's Devastating Impact on our Capacity to Love

Interior Integration for Catholics

Play Episode Listen Later Jul 4, 2022 86:38


Summary:  In this episode, we focus on how unresolved trauma undermines and sabotages both our capacity and our inclination to love well.  We explore how unresolved trauma impacts each of the five characteristics of love -- compromising our ability to love in an affective (emotional), affirming, responsive, unitive and steadfast way.  We also dive into how so trauma pulls us to focus inward, and to protect ourselves, undercutting the vulnerability and willingness to engage that are required for deep love and we discuss hope for change.   Lead-in  They say love is blind, but it's trauma that's blind. Love sees what is.“ — Neil Strauss, The Truth: An Uncomfortable Book About Relationships And Neil Strauss is right on that.  Love connects with reality.  With God who is the ultimate realness, the ultimate being, the I AM.   Trauma is blind and it blinds us.  That's what we are talking about today.  Trauma and its impact on live.   Intro: Dear listener, You and I are together in the adventure of this podcast, Interior Integration for Catholics, we are journeying together, and I am thankful to be with you.   I am Dr. Peter Malinoski, clinical psychologist and passionate Catholic and together, Why are we here?  We are here together to bring you the best of psychology and human formation and harmonize it with the perennial truths of the Catholic Faith. So we can have the best of both.  That's why.   Today, we're going to take a broad perspective, a bird's-eye view of trauma's destructive consequences to our capacity to love.  What is the effect of trauma on our capacity and inclination to love?  That is the question for us to explore together today.   So welcome to episode 95,  of Interior Integration for Catholics, titled Trauma's Devastating Impact on our Capacity to Love, released on July 4, 2022, Independency Day in the USA, This podcast, Interior Integration for Catholics is part of our broader outreach, Souls and Hearts bringing the best of psychology grounded in a Catholic worldview to you and the rest of the world through our website soulsandhearts.com.   Review Trauma.  We are in the midst of  whole series of episodes on trauma.  So just a brief thumbnail review.   Started with Episode 88 Trauma: Defining and Understanding the Experience  Really important to understand the inner experience of trauma -- so you can recognize it in your own life and recognize it an empathetic and attuned way in others' loves.  Part of loving them.   Episode 89 Your Trauma, Your Body: Protection vs. Connection --  a current understanding of how large a role our bodies have in our experience of trauma.  Our bodies.   Episode 90:  Your Well-Being: The Secular Experts Speak  we review how philosophers and modern secular psychologists understand mental health and well-being.  In this episode, we look at the attempts to define what make us happy, from the 4th century BC to the present day.  Aristippus, Aristotle, Descartes, Freud, Seligman, Porges, Schwartz, and two diagnostic systems.  We take a special look at how positive psychology and Internal Family Systems see well-being.   Episode 92:  Understanding and Healing your Mind through IPNB  neuropsychiatrist Dr. Dan Siegel's Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB) and what IPNB can show us about psychological health.  We review the triangle of well-being, the nature of secure attachments, and the basis for mental health from an IPNB perspective.  We examine the characteristics of a healthy mind and how it functions, and the two signs that reliable indicate all psychological symptoms and mental dysfunction.  We discuss the nine domains of integration Three inner experiential exercises in Episode 93 Episode 94:  The Primacy of Love  In this episode, I discuss the central importance of love as the marker of well-being from a Catholic perspective -- our capacity to live out  the two great commandments.  We explore how love is the distinguishing characteristics of Christians, and we discussed Catholic theologian Bernard Brady's five attributes or characteristics of love -- how love is affective, affirming, responsive, unitive and steadfast.  We discuss what is commonly missing from philosophical and theological approaches to love, and we briefly touch in the death of love and distortions of love.  So check those out if you haven't already.  This    Going to address love in general -- focusing on loving  In future episodes, will review  Tolerating being loved Brady quxote   Ordered self-love   The experience of trauma screws up our loves -- where we go to find good.  It screws up where we are seeking, how we seek to be loved and how we seek to love.   St. Augustine:   He lives in justice and sanctity who is an unprejudiced assessor of the intrinsic value of things.  He is a man who has an ordinate love: he neither loves what should not be loved nor fails to love what should be loved. On Christina Doctrine, I, 27 We need ordered love.  Why -- Bernard Brady put it -- Because we become like what we love.  Whatever we embrace in our love, we become like that person or that thing.   As Augustine considered the dissipation of this youth, he wrote "I loved beautiful things of a lower order, and I was going down to the depths."   Confessions.   So much of the problem with disordered love  comes from misdirected seeking to get your attachment needs meet.  That's the problem. We have legitimate attachment needs  Trauma strips away our sense of  A felt sense of Safety and security Feeling seen, heard, known and understood Feeling comforted, soothed, reassured Feeling cherished, treasured, delighted in Feel the other person wills my highest good.   All from Brown and Elliott 2016, Attachment disturbances in Adults Where do we find our safety and security?  In both the natural and spiritual realms, we find it in attachment security needs being met.  Five primary attachment security needs (Brown and Elliott)  A felt sense of safety and protection, a deep sense of security, felt in my bones It makes it so much easier to love when we feel safe and secure.    "People want to be safe, and comfortable. If safety and comfort is to be found in guns, then they will take up guns—of their own accord, in their own need. And when safety and comfort are found in libraries, then the guns rust.“ — Algis Budrys American writer  Source: Some Will Not Die (1961), Chapter 6 (p. 122)   Feeling seen, heard, known, and understood   I want, by understanding myself, to understand others.“ — Katherine Mansfield New Zealand author 1888 - 1923 Being comforted, soothed, and reassured Feeling valued, cherished, treasured, delighted in You are my sunshine published by Jimmie Davis and Charles Mitchell on January 30, 1940   You are my sunshineMy only sunshineYou make me happyWhen skies are grayYou'll never know, dearHow much I love youPlease don't take my sunshine away Feeling that the other person wills my highest good, the best for me We have to turn inward to find the road to God.   Etienne Gilson explained Augustine's approach to God as "a path leading from the exterior to the interior and from the interior to the superior."  Gilson, The Christian Philosophy of St. Augustine p. 20 Charles Taylor:  Sources of the Self: By going inward, I am drawn upward.  The Making of Modern Identity 134 Turning inward is the route to God, not God.  Brady, 120 Often resisted by Catholics as being selfish.   Edward Vacek:  Love, Human and Divine: The Heart of Christian Ethics.  The steps in loving and being loved.    (1) God affirms us; (2) God receives a; (3) we accept God's love; (4) we affirm God; (5) God forms community with us; (6) we cooperate with God in loving God in the world; and finally (7) we grow in a limited code responsibility with God. p.. 177 1 John 4:19 We love, because he first loved us.     Last episode -- Bernard Brady's description of the five characteristics of Love  Christian Love: How Christians through the Ages have Understood Love.-- drawing heavily from the work of phenomenologists  Jules Toner and Margaret Farley Love is affective, affirming, responsive, unitive and steadfast.  (repeat)  Five characteristics.  Five aspects.  Repeat.   We described and discussed these at length in the last episode, episode 94 of the IIC podcast, The Primacy of Love  We will briefly review each of them And then discuss how trauma impacts each of them, bringing in the effects or the sequelae of trauma from Episode 88 --  Trauma: Defining and Understanding the Experience.   Love is affective  Love is an emotion Love is a movement from your heart, your soul -- a movement from the innermost depths of your being.  From your core self.  St. Thomas Aquinas in the Summa:  Consequently the freezing or hardening of the heart is a disposition incompatible with love: while melting denotes a softening of the heart, whereby the heart shows itself to be ready for the entrance of the beloved.“ Love rejoices in the beloved  Love rejoices in the beloved -- Protestant Theologian R.H. Neibuhr writes in his 1977 book the Purpose of the Church and Its Ministry:  By love, we mean at least these attitudes and actions: rejoicing in the presence of the beloved, gratitude, reverence, and loyalty toward him.  p.35 „After a traumatic experience, the human system of self-preservation seems to go onto permanent alert, as if the danger might return at any moment.“  Judith Herman Brené Brown US writer and professor 1965 Source: The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You're Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are  Staying vulnerable is a risk we have to take if we want to experience connection.  Misattributed to Sigmund Freud Out of your vulnerabilities will come your strength. Brady:  Love is the directive and dominant center of emotions.  p. 267  Many emotions are associated with love Delight, Bliss, Happiness  A sense of fulfillment  Warmth  Grief  Sadness  Anxiety  Distress   If there is no emotion, there is no agape, no love.  The heart must be moved for love to be anything like complete.  We cannot love like a Vulcan, like Mr. Spock without emotion.  „Even the most elevated psychological understanding is not a loving understanding.“ — Karl Jaspers German psychiatrist and philosopher 1883 - 1969 Effects of trauma -- from episode 88, Trauma: Defining and Understanding the experience  Emotional and Psychological effects Emotional overwhelm  Shock  Shame as an emotion  Guilt  Irritability, anger, rage   Anxiety, fear, panic attacks, phobia, panic attacks, Fears of trauma repeating Jenny Han, book Always and Forever, Lara Jean  Being vulnerable, letting people in, getting hurt… it's all part of being in love.   Sadness, depression  Mood swings   Hopelessness, despair Emotional constriction, shutting down Difficulty experiencing positive emotions Anhedonia Apathy Brady 273.  Love does not die because of hate but because of apathy.   Cognitive Effects -- impact on sensation, perceptive, higher-order thinking Alexithymia -- inability to recognize or describe one's own emotions -- can't put my feelings into words.   Can't conceptualize your feelings either Feelings in others could be overwhelming -- can't recognize what others are feeling Can't express my feelings well Can't connect affectively, emotionally. That takes vulnerability   Confusion, distraction  Spacing out with dissociation   Physical Effects of trauma -- preoccupation with the body   Behavioral Symptoms Relational apathy  Social withdrawal   Existential Symptoms Despair about humanity -- overgeneralized to the other person  Cynicism  Disillusionment   Identity issues -- shame.   I'm not worth you connecting emotionally with me What could I ever offer you emotionally? I'm such a downer. Strong self-criticism  Fragmentation Love is affirming Love affirms the other  Love says yes to the other person at the same time as love says yes to oneself.   "Agape is the simple yet profound recognition of the worthiness of and goodness in persons."  p. 268  Edward Vacek:  Love is an affective, affirming participation in the goodness of a being (or Being).… Love is an emotional, affirming participation the dynamic tendency of an object to realize its fullness.”  Brene Brown -- Rising Strong  Vulnerability is not winning or losing; it's having the courage to show up and be seen when we have no control over the outcome. Vulnerability is not weakness; it's our greatest measure of courage.“   Affirmation happens at two levels One level is the basic level of human dignity shared by all persons.   Second level of affirmation is the uniqueness of the person.   When you love your neighbor you truly see the other as a person.   Jules Toner, SJ -- "I love you because you are you." We need to affirm at both levels.  The basic dignity of the person and the uniqueness of the person.   Affirmation implies acceptance of the other and knowledge of the other.    This is not an endorsement of the other's vices or bad habits, but a recognition of them and an acceptance of who the person is as an entire being.  Not picking and choosing the attractive bits.  Self-acceptance of the same things. Affirmation requires freedom -- freedom to get outside the self.   Effects of trauma  Emotional and Psychological effects  Turning inward -- self-protection. Connections vs. protection -- Episode 89 Where is the safety?   How can I escape the danger?  Not letting anyone in to love me.   Feeling disconnected or numb or detached -- dorsal vagal response.  Freeze response.  Deer in the headlights Bodily response Emotional Constriction, Shutdown   Shame -- what is my affirmation of you worth?  I'm not worth much, my affirmation isn't worth much.  Feeling very fragile, vulnerable -- not resilient enough --  I can't engage  Irritability, hostility,  Depression -- lethargy  Mood swings -- unpredictability, others can't trust me.   Emotional detachment, disconnection -- in relationships  Helplessness  Difficulty experiencing positive emotions  How can I reach out?  White knuckling. Feels very forced.  Cognitive Effects -- impact on sensation, perceptive, higher-order thinking Racing thoughts -- so distracting, I can attend to you, I can't attune to you, I can't affirm you.  My house is on fire.   Extreme alertness - suspicion of you -- are you a threat?  Will you trigger me?   Physical Effects   Behavioral Symptoms Argumentative behavior  Social withdrawal and relational apathy.  Avoidance   Existential Symptoms Ruminating about evil in the world   Identity issues -- shame If I affirm you I will see myself in a bad light because of my shame  Affirmation involved a positive evaluation -- so tempting to see myself negatively.   Fragmentation  Lack of affirmation from the whole self Toner [Radical love] "is giving self; for it is myself who am in the loved one by my love, not merely by my possessions, or even my thoughts, my wit, my joy, my wisdom, my strength.  It is I myself."   Toner:  Loving someone in depth… Means loving from the lovers most personal self, with sincerity, intensity, endurance… To affectively affirm this unique person in a response informed by full, detailed knowledge, which catches the delicate shadings of his profoundest attitudes, moods, likes, and dislikes, ideals, fears, hopes, capabilities, weaknesses, etc.  The experience of love 160   Love is Responsive  Love is an active response for the well-being of the other.  This is where Brady includes benevolence.  It's about participating in the promotion of the highest good for the other, potential for the other's full humanity. How can I help you to flourish?  How can I help you toward your highest good?   This is where self-sacrifice comes in.   love will call for self-sacrifice.   Responsiveness implies an attunement to the other -- a resonance, and understanding.  The capacity to respond well.  It's not just any responsiveness.  The ability to be aware of and to respond effectively to the needs of my neighbor.  So there is a capacity about this.  It's not just an act of the will.  Attunement can be described as a kind of resonance.  Toner:  Radical love is experience as being in accord with the loved one, vibrating as it were, in harmony with the beloved's act of being and so with the whole melody of the beloved's life.  It is a welcoming of the loved one into the lover's self and his life-world, as fitting there, making a harmony with the lover's being and life.   But there must also be action:  "Let us love, not in word or speech, but in truth and action."  ` John 3:18. Parents "Doing the best they can"  Love bottled up inside.  -- Not expressed.  Then it's not love.  Love that is not shared, that is not relational is not love.   Brene Brown:  Of all the things trauma takes away from us, the worst is our willingness, or even our ability, to be vulnerable. There's a reclaiming that has to happen.  Rising Strong 2015 Madeleine L'Engle Walking on water (1980) When we were children, we used to think that when we were grown-up we would no longer be vulnerable. But to grow up is to accept vulnerability… To be alive is to be vulnerable.  To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly be broken.“ — Clive Staples Lewis, book The Four Loves   The Letter of James 2:45-17.   What does it profit, my brethren, if a man says he has faith but has not works? Can his faith save him? If a brother or sister is ill-clad and in lack of daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what does it profit?  So faith by itself, if it has no works, is dead. Responsive to needs  Not just physical needs, but the emotional needs, psychological needs, relational needs   St. Bernard of Clairvaux:  We must remember that love reveals itself, not by words or phrases, but by actions and experience.  It is Love with speaks here, and if anyone wished to understand it, let him first love.   Effects of trauma  Emotional and Psychological effects Overwhelm  Shock  Shame  Irritability, anger, rage  Anxiety, fear, apprehension  Guilt  Sadness, depression, grief  Helplessness, despair  Mood swings -- swept away by our own experience  Anhedonia -- difficulty experiencing positive emotions.  Apathy   Protection vs. connection.  I'm on fire inside, I am frozen inside.  It's chaotic inside Intense self-preoccupation.  Not selfishness.  It's really hard to judge the moral quality of these things accurately.   When we are preoccupied with the intensity of our own experience, it's hard to be responsive to the other person.     Cognitive Effects -- impact on sensation, perceptive, higher-order thinking “When something reminds traumatized people of the past, their right brain reacts as if the traumatic event were happening in the present. But because their left brain is not working very well, they may not be aware that they are re-experiencing and reenacting the past - they are just furious, terrified, enraged, ashamed, or frozen.”  ― Bessel Van Der Kolk Difficulty concentrating, even focusing on the other person.  Confusion.  Others sense the disconnect.  Not attuned.    Guardedness -- protecting against vulnerability Questioning "Why me?" makes it hard to respond to you.     Physical Effects Behavioral Symptoms Startle responses   Argumentative behavior Social withdrawal and relational apathy.  Avoidance Reducing activity levels Existential Symptoms I am permanently damaged.  How could I ever be responsive in love.  Who would want me?  Can be unconscious.   Identity issues -- shame I am permanently damaged.   Fragmentation -- not a consistent, complete, unified response to the other -- partial responses that seem very incomplete, maybe insincere to the other person.  Love requires our whole being Fr. Jules Toner:  in the full concrete experience of love, our whole being, spirit and flesh, is involved: cognitive acts, feelings and affections, freedom, bodily reactions – all these are influencing each other and all are continually fluctuating in such a way as to change the structure and intensity of the experience. The experience of love. P. 65 Love is Unitive Brady:  The fruit of love is unity.  Love unites.  It is in the very nature of love to bring together.  p. 279  Brady:  When you love, you step out of yourself and experience the other.   There is still a separateness.  Not a blending or a fusion or a loss of identity.  But you are no longer just within yourself.  You've entered into the space of another.   And you've allow the other to enter into your space Loving an enemy -- you are like me.  We are similar on a fundamental human level -- No dehumanization.  Agape pulls for unity, even with strangers.   The mystics describe the unity we are called to in God -- Union with God.   Jules Toner: Radical love is not a tendency affection but a being affection by which I am in union with, am present with the loved one.   Effects of trauma -- Protection vs. Connection  Emotional and Psychological effects Emotional instability, inconsistency -- unpredictability.  Makes it hard for the other to trust you.   Preoccupation pulls you inside -- guilt, shame -- self protection. St. Augustine:  "..if [a man] loves himself on his own account, he does not turn himself toward God, but being turned toward himself, he does not care for anything immutable…."  On Christian Doctrine, Book 1, Chapter 22  And the why doesn't matter nearly so much as people think it does.   Evil comes from loving some good thing inordinately -- blog post on this -- check it out.  Dangerous love, from June 22, 2022 That good thing might be the means that parts of us are seeking to try to provide us with a sense of safety and security.   Fear of vulnerability When trust is lost, traumatized people feel that they belong more to the dead than to the living.“ — Judith Herman Trauma and Recovery  Love is a battlefield  -Pat Benatar 1983 -- music video about all the conflict with her father, and with others seeking to use her as a sexual object.   Fear of overwhelming suffering  Shutdown  Alexithymia   Cognitive Effects -- impact on sensation, perceptive, higher-order thinking Distraction, rumination, racing thoughts interfere with capacity to attune, to unite  So much internal stimulation -- so much internal noise -- makes it difficult to resonate with the other person, to really understand the other -- to enter into the other's phenomenological world.   So much of that distraction is around finding safety and protection -- cognitive restlessness  Dissociation and disconnections are experienced as off-putting.  Have you ever been with someone who is spacing out when you are talking with them?   Physical Effects   Behavioral Symptoms Blaming  Discharging anger and aggression -- parts so want to be heard and healed.   Desperation can lead to boundary crossings and boundary violations.   Attempts to use the other person to meet intense needs -- not a conscious effort to exploit the other, but exploitation can happen anyway.   Existential Symptoms Shame -- feeling unworthy of connection  Not knowing who I am -- makes it really complicated to be in relationship.   Identity issues Fragmentation - which part of me is uniting with you right now? What are other parts doing.   The need for disconnects within in order to not be overwhelmed - inevitably leads to disconnects with other people You can't give what you don't have.   I'm not lovable, why would you want to be united with me?   Dissociation Identity alteration: The sense of being markedly different from another part of yourself  Identity confusion: A sense of confusion about who you really are   we will have a lot more to say about dissociation in future episodes, but for now -- disconnection. I need to know who I am and I need to know who you are to know who we are together, in relationship.  Love is steadfast God's love endures.  Psalm 891-2  I will sing of thy steadfast love, O Lord,[a] for ever;     with my mouth I will proclaim thy faithfulness to all generations.For thy steadfast love was established for ever,  It may not always be mutual or reciprocal People want predictability Steadfastness requires resilience, to roll with the punches in the relationship.  Any close relationship will have conflicts and difficulties. The fragility in the system that trauma imposes is a real obstacle to resilience necessary to be steadfast in relationship, to not quit and walk away from loving the other person.   Jules Toner:  "The lover is present to the loved one and has the loved one present to himself."   The experience of love, 117 Effects of trauma  Emotional and Psychological effects Mood swings -- effect of different parts, each with its own intense emotions  Helplessness -- despair -- can be intermittent  Emotional shutdown -- dorsal vagal response.   Being reactivated or triggered emotionally.   Disappointment in the other -- you are not helping me Can lead to frustration and rejection.   Cognitive Effects -- impact on sensation, perceptive, higher-order thinking Intrusive thoughts, intrusive memories.   Dissociation is a mental process of disconnecting from one's thoughts, feelings, body, from memories or sense of identity. This disconnection is automatic and completely out of the person's control. Amnesia: Often described as "gaps" in memory that can range from minutes to years  Depersonalization: Feeling disconnected from your body or thoughts  Derealization: Feeling disconnected from the world around you   Physical Effects Impact of hyperarousal  Impact of hypoarousal   Behavioral Symptoms Withdrawal  Avoidance -- refusal of consistent vulnerability  Alcohol and drug use   „For me, vulnerability led to anxiety, which led to shame, which led to disconnection, which led to Bud Light.“ — Brené Brown US writer and professor 1965 Source: Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead  Switching among parts Existential Symptoms Deep sense of not being loved, not being lovable  There is no love in the world.  At least not for me.  So why unite with anyone.  Loss of meaning and purpose.  Identity issues Fragmentation  Unstable identity makes it hard to be consistent in the loving   The death of love Brady 273.  Love does not die because of hate but because of apathy.  The death of love is often preceded by the denial of the basic dignity of the other.  The death of love happens when we reject instead of affirm the other's special personal and unique goodness.  The death of love is encouraged when we ignore the other's needs and wants while prioritizing our own wants.  The deal of love occurs when we pursue discord, division, disassociation, and distance in the place of unity.   That is sin.   Malice is not necessary for love to die.  Apathy doesn't have malice in it. In apathy, the other does not register in your consciousness.  He or she doesn't matter. He or she doesn't exist for you.   We don't have to active deny the basic dignity of the other.  We just have to not notice it.  Not attend to it We don't have to actively reject the other's special and unique goodness, we just have to not notice it, not attend to it.   We don't have to actively ignore the other's needs and wants -- we just have to be preoccupied with our own trauma and its effects.     Hope Romans 8:28 We know that in everything God works for good[a] with those who love him,[b] who are called according to his purpose.  Julian of Norwich:  And because of the tender love which our good Lord has for all who will be saved, he comforts readily and sweetly, meaning this: it is true that sin is the cause of all this pain, but all will be well, and every kind of thing will be well.   Widow's mite Luke 21:1-4  He looked up and saw rich people putting their gifts into the treasury; 2 he also saw a poor widow put in two small copper coins. 3 He said, “Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put in more than all of them; 4 for all of them have contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty has put in all she had to live on.”  Ratios   Martin Luther King:  Love even for enemies is the key to the solution of the problems of the world.  Strength to Love 47-48  Psychologist Peter Levine:  Trauma is hell on earth. Trauma resolved is a gift from the gods.  Romans 5:20 ..where sin increased, grace abounded all the more,  1 John 3:1  See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him.  Romans 8 35-39  Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will hardship, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?  As it is written, “For your sake we are being killed all day long; we are accounted as sheep to be slaughtered.” No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.   Call to Action Kent Keith The Paradoxical Commandments -- Resilience.  Mother Theresa had pinned this up in one of her convents.    People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.   Love them anyway.If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.   Do good anyway.Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.   Be honest and frank anyway.What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.   Build anyway.People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.   Help people anyway.Give the world the best you have and you'll get kicked in the teeth.   Give the world the best you have anyway.   Where we are going If you want to love, you have to first be loved and know you are loved.   Tolerating being loved -- many people assume that we just want to be loved -- that's not anything like entirely accurate.  1 John 4:19 We love, because he first loved us. Ordered self love.    Check out our blogs -- weekly email reflections  June 15 -- Seven ways to understand sin     Sin as breaking the law    Sin as a burden    Sin as a debt    Sin as “missing the mark”    Sin as a violating your conscience    Sin as breaking or harming relationships    Sin as the failure to love, or the “anti-love” June 22  Dangerous Love -- we really get into St. Augustine's description of sin as a disordered or misdirected love, and I share how when we that misdirected love is oriented toward getting our attachment needs met, it's not only misdirected love, it's a dangerous love.   June 29 Conflicting loves inside you -- we get into how to understand the conflicting loves inside of us -- from a parts perspective -- multiplicity and unity of the self.   Email me crisis@soulsandhearts.com  -- call my cell 317.567.9594 any Tuesday or Thursday from 4:30 PM to 5:30 PM Eastern time for conversation hours.   Let others know about this podcast.  Put the word out.  There's somebody you know dealing with trauma -- get them on board with the rest of us with the IIC podcast.  All the major podcast player -- Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, Audible, Podbean, Podchaser, CastBox, Overcast, Podcast Addict, all of them, we're on all of them.  Soulsandhearts.com/iic You have until July 10.  The RCC -- Come with me on an adventure.  Come with me on an adventure of being loved and of loving.  That is what the Resilient Catholic Community is all about.  Check out the Resilient Catholics Community at soulsandhearts.com/RCC  The RCC is all about working through your human formation issues -- the ones that inhibit you from receiving the love you need and from loving God completely, with every fiber of your being, with your body,  with all your parts, with all your emotions, thoughts, all your inner experience with all of you, with no part of you left behind, no part of you left out.   It's all about learning to be gentle but firm with yourself -- it's all about integration.  It's all about resilience.   All about restoration -- recovering from being dominated by shame, fear, anger, sadness, pessimism, whatever your struggle is in the depths of your human formation And we do this work experientially -- so many experiential exercises -- this is not just intellectual knowledge, we're working with all of you. Informed by Internal Family Systems and the best of the rest of psychological and human formation resources  All grounded in a Catholic understanding of the human person  All focused on helping you to better accept love and to love more fully, to carry out the two great commandments of our Lord.   Are you up for the challenge?  Would you like to join me and the rest of the pioneers in this adventure?  Do you want to be a part of the community?   Are you ready to prevail over whatever hinders your human formation -- would you like to no longer be dominated by fear, anger, shame, sadness, pessimism?  And would you like to be with other like-minded Catholics on the journey -- If so join me.  Join all of us in the Resilient Catholics Community.  The RCC We are taking applications throughout until July 10 -- extended the deadline.   for our third cohort, those in that cohort will start their adventure in June and July by taking our Initial Measures Kits and be getting feedback on their parts in a personal Zoom session with me.  It's a great chance for us to get to know each other, really know each other at the level of parts.  You'll get a 5 or 6 page report on your internal system and then be eligible for our weekly company meetings and programming to begin in late August or early September.   Talk with me about it in conversation hours call my cell 317.567.9594 any Tuesday or Thursday from 4:30 PM to 5:30 PM Eastern time for conversation hours.   Patroness and Patron

Hamilton Morris and Dr. Mark Plotkin — Exploring the History of Psychoactive Substances, Synthetic vs. Natural Options, Microdosing, 5-MeO-DMT, The “Drunken Monkey” Hypothesis, Timothy Leary's Legacy, and More | Brought to you by Athletic Greens all-in-one nutritional supplement and 5-Bullet Friday, my very own email newsletter. More on both below.Welcome to The Tim Ferriss Show, where it is usually my job to deconstruct world-class performers, to tease out their routines, habits, et cetera that you can apply to your own life. This time around, we have a very special edition featuring two of your favorite guests: Dr. Mark Plotkin and Hamilton Morris. Mark takes over my duties as host and interviews Hamilton for an episode of the Plants of the Gods podcast. You, my dear listeners, are hearing the audio before anyone else, so this is a Tim Ferriss Show exclusive. I've previously featured some of my favorite episodes from that show at tim.blog/plantsofthegods. These episodes cover a lot of fascinating ground.Who is Mark? Mark (@DocMarkPlotkin) is an ethnobotanist who serves as president of the Amazon Conservation Team, which has partnered with ~80 tribes to map and improve management and protection of ~100 million acres of ancestral rainforests. He is best known to the general public as the author of the book Tales of a Shaman's Apprentice, one of the most popular books ever written about the rainforest. His most recent book is The Amazon: What Everyone Needs to Know. You can find my interview with Mark at tim.blog/markplotkin. And the guest today is Hamilton Morris. Hamilton (@HamiltonMorris) is a chemist, filmmaker, and science journalist. A graduate of The New School, he conducts chemistry research at Saint Joseph's University. Hamilton is the writer and director of the documentary series Hamilton's Pharmacopeia, in which he explores the chemistry and traditions surrounding psychoactive drugs. You can find my most recent interview with him at tim.blog/hamilton. This is a tightly packed 60-minute interview. Mark and Hamilton cover the history of different psychoactive substances, Timothy Leary's legacy, the “drunken monkey” hypothesis, conservation, microdosing, the differences between 5-MeO-DMT and DMT, a disease that afflicts people who smoke enormous quantities of cannabis, causing them to vomit continuously and only find relief from their nausea by taking a hot shower (yes, really), the impact of the placebo effect, a synthetic vs. a natural product, the role of ritual, and much, much more.

Welcome to another episode of The Tim Ferriss Show, where it is my job to deconstruct world-class performers to tease out the routines, habits, et cetera that you can apply to your own life. This is a special inbetweenisode, which serves as a recap of the episodes from last month. It features a short clip from each conversation in one place so you can easily jump around to get a feel for the episode and guest.Based on your feedback, this format has been tweaked and improved since the first recap episode. For instance, @hypersundays on Twitter suggested that the bios for each guest can slow the momentum, so we moved all the bios to the end. See it as a teaser. Something to whet your appetite.
