How does psychoneuroimmunology help us acknowledge that the human body is an integral aspect of each person’s reality, body mind spirit?
Thoughts and feelings (mind and spirit) affect the body’s immune system and cause increased or decreased susceptibility to disease. A form of intelligence is in each cell; therefore, the body is not simply some other-than-real housing for the more-real inner self but is an integral aspect of the whole being.
Is spirit matter or not matter (immaterial)?
Spirit is matter--see D&C 131:7-8
What is the significance of knowing that the resurrection is a literal reuniting of the body and the spirit?
The body is sacred, the body is eternal, the body is necessary for salvation, we are in the image of God and Christ and will be forever, the body and spirit cannot be separated after the resurrection, and there can only be one physical death.
Understanding the nature of our being, body mind spirit, helps us avoid what common harmful behaviors prevalent today?
Addictions to drugs, tobacco and other substances, obsessions with eating and exercising, or trying to control others’ lives.
What is an absolute metaphysical perspective and how does it differ from a relative metaphysical perspective?
An absolute metaphysical perspective is one that looks to an authority outside oneself to know reality and truth. One believes that unchanging truths govern life and that these truths are universal and apply to each life. Absolutes in the LDS Gospel are eternal, always in effect for all lives whether people believe them or not. A relative metaphysical perspective is one that claims each person is his or her own authority. There are no universal truths and each individual creates his or her own reality.
What absolutes do you know that pertain to the nature of your being?
Spirit is matter, blood is present in the mortal self only, we will be resurrected and live eternally, one being of spirit, flesh and bones, never to die or to have body and spirit separated again, in the premortal life we were spirit only and therefore incomplete, God has a body of flesh and bones, and we are made in His exact image.
What specific benefits does an individual receive who has a clear understanding of the absolutes regarding the nature of our being, body mind spirit?
It’s a basis on which to build a firm foundation, a strong philosophy of life, fixed principles that guide specific actions and decisions, and hope for eternal life.
How do we know the worth or value of a human life?
The worth of each human life is absolute, meaning that it is eternal, unchanging, and cannot be affected by oneself or another--it is not in our hands or anyone else’s. The worth of each life is equal to that of another life. We can intellectually know these concepts about worth, but it’s more important to gain a spiritual confirmation of their truthfulness. Once an individual knows by the Spirit that his or her worth is great, that sure knowledge is stronger than mere cognition
What is the difference between unconditional and conditional self-acceptance?
An unconditional self-acceptance would base acceptance on the eternal, absolute worth of each soul. Worth does not change, for each person’s worth is great, regardless of circumstances or conditions. Conditional self-acceptance would be based on attaining some condition: success, a specific type of appearance, money or prestige. When a person attains the condition important to him or her, that person has a good sense of self (high self-esteem); if that condition is not attained, the person has a poor sense of self (or low self-esteem).
How can we know that God always loves us?
We can trust in the teachings of the prophets and the scriptures, because they assure us of God’s constant love for us. Loving oneself is more a matter of faith than accomplishment. We can have faith that our Heavenly Parents love us as perfect parents would. As we know the true character of God, we know that God is love. With faith in prayer, we can know by way of the Holy Ghost the truth of all things, and most especially, the truth that we are always absolutely loved by Heavenly Father.
Loving oneself, body mind spirit, is nice to do, but does it affect one’s health?
Studies have demonstrated an actual difference in the content of blood cells because of positive attitudes. New discoveries are being made with advances in immune research that indicate that those with positive attitudes experience actual biochemical advantages.
What evidence has medical science given of the power of love in health and healing?
Two examples are psychosocial dwarfism and recovery from heart attacks. In both cases, it was documented that those who knew they were loved had better health or improved more quickly. The trust in being loved is directly correlated with health improvements.
