Understanding Emptiness The Think/Feel Conflict

Supported by years of clinical experience, the book presents a model on where emptiness comes from, its progression through the stages of life, recognizing its effects and finally showing how to "fill the emptiness." Addresses frequently asked questions: What is it about me that causes others to treat me as they do? How can I think so logically about things and still be unable to control my feelings? Why don't others deal with me in the same way I deal with them? Why is it impossible to please so many people?

Quotes from Understanding Emptiness:
The simplest definition of emptiness is the condition that exists when the opposing sides of the brain... analyze the same situation or problem but arrive at opposing solutions. That is the reason ...we can think one way but feel totally different about the same situation.

...whenever your negative emotional activity increases, you will find that your thoughts get jumbled. Recalling details such as names and numbers suffers and concentration abilities are decreased. You will have increased difficulties in finding the words you are trying to say. Again this makes sense....

All too often people find themselves in a relationship with a partner who has a number of negative emotional memories... and this often leads to unreasonable, illogical, and unwinnable situations with that partner.

Not only does a person deal with a current situation that can be problematic...on its own accord, but the person also has to deal with negative emotional memories...reactivated by the present day situation. Therefore, the negative emotions can become overwhelming and result in feelings of hopelessness and helplessness, even in situations that are solvable.

No one is free of emptiness. It is an inescapable plague....This emptiness is the factor that will prevent us from ever achieving total peace, either between groups or between individuals. It can never be removed from any of us, only reduced or increased in its degree.

The origin of our own internal emptiness always begins with our interaction with our parents.

Sources of resentment toward brothers and sisters appear to stem from two distinct areas: perceived differences in parental treatment or an abusive sibling.

For many individuals, often looked on as one's "best years." For others, however, school becomes a situation which is dreaded and very punishing.
If one begins to realize that our dating partners and spouses have their own emptiness, it does become possible to comprehend these numerous relationship difficulties.

Outside of our immediate family, perhaps the most frequent psychological problems we experience occur within the context of our job....It happens both with blue collar and white collar jobs....This involves emptiness in our supervisors and coworkers.



Bad Feelings, Bad Thoughts, and Bad People: Understanding and Dealing with Each

CD 1 - Introduction to the series. This presents information on the way the brain is organized and how negative emotional/mood states are created by current situations, past negative emotional memories, and the loss of former positive situations. It is done in a non-technical manner so that anyone can understand.

CD 2 - Information on available approaches to treatment for psychological problems. This discusses what is available for people seeking treatment for psychological problems. It briefly discusses the major approaches used by psychotherapists, with suggestions to patients on what to look for in a therapist. Clinical biopsychological treatment is explained as it relates to previous approaches. Information is given to people with headache and facial pain problems on how to reduce oral habits that may contribute to pain. There is a brief discussion of relaxation techniques and biofeedback. Finally, problem solving techniques are suggested as a manner in which it may be possible to reduce excessive worry.

CD 3 - Normal emotional reactions to loss. This discusses why everyone experiences a depressive state tied to loss of previously positive situations and relationships. Losses may include physical problems and disabilities, as well as loss of one's basic beliefs/views of life situations. The phases of such depressive/grief states are presented, as well as what one can do in coping adaptively during these times.

CD 4 - Introduction to Type-T (Taker) and Type-G (Giver) individuals. This presents information on how each person develops characteristic patterns (personality) of relationship behaviors, and why these are repeated throughout one's life. The ways these patterns manifest themselves in each person we know are discussed. This allows the listener to directly analyze and understand individuals from their past, present, and future relationships.

CD 5 - Givers and Takers you have known. Following the general information on the fourth tape, this takes the listener though specific relationships to allow a better understanding of his/her own relationships. Type-T and Type-G individuals are discussed as parents, siblings, school peers and teachers, spouses, children, and supervisors/coworkers.

For Christians:


The Brain and the Bible

This is a book with something for everyone both Bible believers and nonbelievers. Dr. Moss shows how an understanding of Biblical guidelines leads to improved psychological health. Our understanding of brain and psychological functioning is consistent with information presented throughout the Bible. The book describes how true spiritual growth in Jesus Christ results in great emotional turmoil, as one releases those vain things of the world that have been used to activate positive feelings and minimize negative feelings.

Quotes from The Brain and the Bible:
...the common denominator for all aspects of human existence including the sciences of psychology and neurophysiology is Jesus Christ.

I have been astounded by the facts that are accurately described within the Bible as my knowledge grew within neurophysiology and psychology.

...the Bible is not inaccurate or fictional, it is simply that we do not have the knowledge base to explain completely and adequately all that is written.

Information given to us within the Bible can be similarly viewed. Faith is the major prerequisite to being able to use this information.

...the Bible describes accurately and factually what exists and provides an overall plan for human existence.

The manner in which we respond emotionally to situations would largely depend upon the emotional memories we have stored from earlier experiences. is possible to think one way about a given situation while feeling differently about that same situation. I have previously used the term "emptiness" (i.e., spiritual emptiness) to describe this think/feel conflict.



The Competition of Spirit: in Pursuit of the Light

There is only one worthwhile goal in life eternal life with Jesus Christ. In this life, we are naturally slaves to the world around us. As such, we attempt to manipulate and control the world and people we encounter to minimize negative feelings and maximize positive feelings. This book encourages the Christian reader's growth in discipleship; the process of exchanging the emptiness unfulfilled by the things of the world for the fullness of life with Jesus Christ.

Quotes from Competition of Spirit: is possible to explain everyone's behavior with two simple and basic rules....still holding fast to these two universal rules....I am now simply getting into detail about the factors...for two distinct groups of humans[Type Gs and Type Ts]....I strongly believe each is equal in the eyes of God because each is based on the worldly nature of the individual....

I believe most people are prone to think about the location after the second death...along the lines of the most commonly held perceptions of Hell. As a result, people have concluded that after the first death, people immediately go to Heaven or Hell....However, these concepts have little basis if one strictly looks at the Bible.
When I make the statement that Jesus Christ is the Light, I mean it literally....The Light is the focus of the entire Bible. Reference to the Light occurs in the first chapter of the Bible, as well as the last....Those who know to look within for the Light and truly worship God in Spirit need not fear the second death....Jesus Christ did give you the means to discern the truth....He has given you the Holy Spirit in His name....I believe that anything He wishes for you to see will have the effect of increasing your faith in Him.

I find people rather surprised to find to discover that in both Hebrew (Old Testament) and Greek (New Testament) two different words are translated into English as the same word referring to life....As I read through both the Old and New Testaments I have come to believe these qualitatively different states refer to my soul's connection to my brain and body (nephesh, psyche) as opposed to my soul's connection to God (chaiyim, zoe)....What is important now is to see how Jesus Christ was the only individual deserving chaiyim at the loss of His nephesh and how this influences our ability to have chaiyim at the end of our nephesh....I would define grace as the gift of chaiyim or zoe.

Whenever you come into contact with a group of people, including the congregation of a church, recognize that by nature half of these people are Type Gs and half are Type Ts. Expect both Christians and non-Christians to continue to be Type Gs and Type Ts until they physically cease to exist in this world....Although I wish I was wrong, the reality is that, in general, Christians continue to demonstrate the same old behavior patterns they have always had.

...the competition of spirit is real. When pursuing the Light becomes a person's priority, the competition ends in victory for that person.

For Psychological Academicians and Clinicians:


Clinical Biopsychology in Theory and Practice

In pursuit of practical applications of the neo-Lurian model of higher cortical functions, clinical experience has assisted in the refinement of an approach called Emotional Restructuring. This approach classifies human behavior patterns as those of Type G or Type T. These classifications have proven accurate in explaining and predicting the actions of people in close relationships. Under this approach, many clients experiencing long-term anxiety and depressive disorders could finally resolve conflicts tied to past negative emotional memories. Both behavior and treatment fit within the context of the neo-Lurian model. The book presents both the theory and clinical experience gained over nearly 20 years of work.

Quotes from Clinical Biopsychology:
...the two universal rules...[that] apply to clinical practice...[are] all humans will attempt to experience positive feelings and deactivate negative ones ...[and] with all other factors being constant, something experienced as positive cannot remain as positive as when it initially occurred.

...emotional memories stored within the right cortex can act as triggers for both positive and negative emotions.

...negative emotions can be experienced from three different sources: (a) directly from an ongoing environmental situation...(b) directly from stimulation of previously stored negative emotional memories...(c) indirectly from the inability to environmentally stimulate previously stored positive emotional memories.

The largest single area of deficiency [of all psychotherapeutic approaches] has been in the area of past emotional memories...therapies that have...tended to do so indirectly or have isolated only a few traumatic memories.

In contrast to behavioral techniques, the current approach deals with all earlier issues. In contrast to psychodynamic approaches, the current procedures directly isolate and treat each earlier issue. This allows the therapist to progress from the earliest to the most current issues, usually only taking six to eight sessions before many clients have resolved all relevant past issues.
