You will not have peace if you rush to trigger more of these chemicals as soon as a spurt is over.

There are many names many masters over many centuries. They all have the same qualities in common.
Here is one book
You may consider this as a work of philosophical fiction, or perhaps more appropriately; a work of anagogic allegory. Compared to other works in The Conversations series of books, in this working it is nearly impossible to tell the difference between the two speakers in dialogue. This is testament to the closeness which has since been forged. As you read, it’s best not to concern yourself with elucidating who is saying what. Let the two voices merge and flow in and out of one another; this is a part of the magic of the working. The gist of this conversation begins, peaks, and ends, on the attainment and the understanding of Immortality. Death is not a needful experience nor a necessary process. Immortality is a gift that has been hidden in allegories, a gift which was always meant to be uncovered by a few who want it. This is what we uncover on the pages of this book. An excellent read for those who struggle with their sense of self-worth, self-love, self-acceptance, as well as those who struggle with their own identity and sense of belonging. The Conversation of Immortals may work miracles in the lives of those who have alienated parts of themselves, shunned parts of themselves, and/or toil to come to terms with various disparate characters lurking inside them, parts of their whole, which they don’t know what to do with. This book is a grimoire, a tool that ought to be used for the rearrangement and rehabilitation of the human mind and heart.
