Adrenaline is also known as the “fight or flight” hormone. It’s released in response to a stressful, exciting, dangerous, or threatening situation. It helps your body react more quickly. It makes the heart beat faster, increases blood flow to the brain and muscles, and stimulates the body to make sugar to use for fuel. When adrenaline is released suddenly, it is often referred to as an adrenaline rush.
Thought Adjuster: “Fear is a very uncomfortable emotion when you are under its grip. Ignorance can be one of its major contributors, as beings naturally shy away from what they cannot fathom. This too is a self-preservation reflex. How could it be otherwise? Man is born in a very enigmatic and ‘dreadful’ world—both on the inner and outer.
“With the help of science and philosophy, and through hands-on experiences, man expands his understanding, thus debunking some of the fears that were previously plaguing him, since he had to come up with some credible interpretation for what he could not understand. Yet, such interpretations can be—and frequently are, very flawed.
“Over time, the children of the Earth have evolved in their understanding of their Creator—especially due to the light shed by Jesus about the affectionate character and personality of His Heavenly Father. Such was His mission: to change the relation of man to God from one of fear to one of love. How do you build such a mighty bridge?
“When man recognizes only the works of God, he is led to fear the Supreme; but when man begins to understand and experience the personality and character of the living God, he is led increasingly to love such a good and perfect, universal and eternal Father.” [UB Paper 149, Section 6].
Such a change of heart has to organically undergo various stages of metamorphosis: “The father naturally loves his child, but the child must develop his love for the father from the fear of what the father can do, through awe, dread, dependence, and reverence, to the appreciative and affectionate regard of love.” [UB Paper 149, Section 6]
“Dear ones, as you ‘let go’ of the inner hurdles that prevent you to ‘let God’ step into your life, you will experience a growing sense of liberation from the fetters of fear to the ecstasy of a truly activated heart. Indeed, your heart has been to be under the spell of love—not the grip of fear. How else could it thrive?”
