9-8-19 – A MERRY HEART DOES GOOD LIKE A MEDICINE: Serotonin, Dopamine, Endorphins, and the Healing Power of Happiness, Part II

Today’s Notes:
I – “My son, forget not my law or teaching, but let your heart keep my commandments; For length of days and years of a life [worth living] and tranquility [inward and outward and continuing through old age till death], these shall they add to you. Let not mercy and kindness [shutting out all hatred and selfishness] and truth [shutting out all deliberate hypocrisy or falsehood] forsake you; bind them about your neck, write them upon the tablet of your heart. So shall you find favor, good understanding, and high esteem in the sight [or judgment] of God and man. Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths. Be not wise in your own eyes; reverently fear and worship the Lord and turn [entirely] away from evil. It shall be HEALTH to your nerves and sinews, and marrow and moistening to your bones.”
(Proverbs 3:1-8 – AMPC)

II – “My son, attend to my words; consent and submit to my sayings. Let them not depart from your sight; keep them in the center of your heart. For they are life to those who find them, HEALING and HEALTH to all their flesh. Keep and guard your heart with all vigilance and above all that you guard, for out of it flow the springs of life.”
(Proverbs 4:20-23 – AMPC)

III – “Pleasant words are as a honeycomb, sweet to the mind and HEALING to the body.”
(Proverbs 16:24 – AMPC)

IV – “A happy heart is good medicine and a cheerful mind works HEALING, but a broken spirit dries up the bones.”
(Proverbs 17:22 – AMPC)

V – “The strong spirit of a man sustains him in bodily pain or trouble, but a weak and broken spirit who can raise up or bear?”
(Proverbs 18:14 – AMPC)

VI – “it makes sense that we should concentrate not merely on avoiding negative emotions, like fear and anger, but also on consciously cultivating heartfelt, positive emotions, such as gratitude, joy, excitement, enthusiasm, fascination, awe, inspiration, wonder, trust, appreciation, kindness, compassion, and empowerment, to give us every advantage in maximizing our health.”
― Dr. Joe Dispenza

VII – “You don’t stop laughing because you grow old. You grow old because you stop laughing.”
– Michael Pritchard
