[Excerpt from TT: 2007-01-07]
[stryper] My question deals with what seems to be a mis-definition. In the overleaves for this year it seem that Michael mention there would be much revealing of truths. The biological reaction being tears. Connotatively crying is usually called an emotional reaction. Yet the recognition of Truth is intellectual. So it seems to me that the definition is backwards. What am I missing here?
[Michael Entity] Tears are the biological reaction to Truth; more accurately speaking, Tears are the biological response to the ACCEPTANCE of Truth. Acceptance is also Intellectually-based, or resonant to the Higher Intellect. People have come to associate Tears with Emotions because of the feelings that are often involved in the processing of Truth, and while the Emotional Center is used as a part of the process, so are other Centers, but the use of various Centers as a means to help integrate Truth does not mean that the symptom of Tears is linked to those Centers, specifically. Tears associated with sadness, elation, awe-inspiring beauty, happiness, excitement, pain, etc. are still provoked by the TRUTH of those experiences, not in the emotions fluctuating around those experiences. We have never said that Tears are not associated with Feelings, but they are not reactions or responses to Feelings. Another reason Tears are often thought to be associated with Emotion is because part of the blockage to Truth is frequently in the emotional realm. When that emotional blockage is breached, healed, transformed, etc, the acceptance of truth can be had, thus resulting in tears. Tears mean that there is no denying the truth of that moment or experience, ranging from a stubbed toe to the loss of a loved one, from a thrilling moment of clarity to a life-changing realization.
Would the removal of blockage be part of the relief people often feel after crying? (i.e. having intellectually known the truth, yet emotionally not accepting it)
[Michael Entity] There are chemical compositions within Tears that are as biologically important to release as any other “waste,” and in that release there is often relief. Often the “waste” is directly related to the build up of denials, distractions, false truths, emotional blockages, etc.
