Ride Of Your Life Interview with Dr. Byram Karasu - Psychology and God
...
Dr. Byram Karasu is the chairman of the Behavioral Sciences Department at the Albert Einstein Institute in New York, and Chief Psychiatrist at the Montefiore Medical Center. His decades of research and interaction with people carrying different kinds of emotional and mental burden has led him to a simple conclusion: that it is only by striving to be godly and living a spiritual life that one can be truly happy. He established a new and fascinating branch of behavioral sciences research and practice called Spiritual Psychotherapy. He has also taken his new message beyond the psychology and psychiatry community to reach the general public with a series of best-selling books.
The Spirit of Happiness Modern science and medicine have already accepted the unity of mind and body. Primary physicians talk with their patients about emotional stress, and psychologists and coaches talk with their clients about nutrition and exercise. However, in the triad of mind-body-spirit, spirituality is yet to become a part of the science and practice of modern medicine. Dr. Karasu's work makes the leap into spirituality from a scientific perspective. His books talk about God explicitly and propose a path towards inner peace and happiness. The underlying values and ideas overlap with some concepts of positive psychology, and with the different religious traditions: kindness, generosity, and above all - love. However, unlike some of the fields of research that only flirt with religion, Dr. Karasu's work forms a unique marriage between scientific method and the leap of faith into believing in the divine.

No matter how many self-help books we read, workshops we attend, spiritual endeavors we pursue; no matter how often we cuddle our inner child or redesign our outer adult, many people keep returning to a gnawing angst and vague unhappiness, according to T. Byram Karasu, author of The Art of Serenity. o­ne of the problems is that many of us define happiness in paradisiacal, childish terms, causing us to feel like we're missing out."Happiness in adulthood, however, requires realism, reciprocity, and coming to terms with o­ne's mortality," he writes.And, of course, it requires us to cultivate the art of serenity.Like M. Scott Peck, author of The Road Less Traveled, Karasu brings a psychological background to the area of spiritual growth. (Karasu is the chair of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Science at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, as well as the editor in chief of the American Journal of Psychotherapy.) Sometimes blending spirituality and psychology muddies the waters, but Karasu has a solid understanding of how the two worlds intersect and has created an outstanding and completely accessible guide to lasting inner happiness.The door of joyful serenity can o­nly be opened by a "combination key involving both soul and spirit," he explains.And it all culminates in the love of God.Using real-life cases from his psychotherapy practice, Karasu illustrates how the principles of soul work and spirit work are applied to daily lives.From lovers' jealousy to workplace angst, from friendships to solitude, Karasu offers original, lasting advice and insights.

Drawing o­n, among many other traditions and influences, folktales, mythology, Eastern philosophy, Sufi poetry and Judeo-Christian theology, Karasu, a scholar, lecturer and the editor in chief of American Journal of Psychotherapy, fashions a spiritual guide to help suffering people find genuine happiness and "an extraordinary and permanent joyful serenity."His message is a simple o­ne: such serenity comes from loving others, loving o­ne's work and belonging to a community, and from being able to believe in unity, the sacred, and the possibility of transformation.These feelings find their ultimate meaning and inspiration, he says, in "believing in and loving God."Moving through these themes in compassionate chapters full of anecdotes, literary references and stories from his own patients, Karasu shows how they resolved their issues and learned to live with joy.

"Don't say, "There's no reason for you to be depressed," " says T. Byram Karasu, MD, chair of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City. " Just be there. It's tempting to try to talk a loved one out of his or her feelings of sadness and despair, but it's more important to show your support. Just being present sends the message that you care. " Be alert to worsening symptoms. "If the depressed person is sleeping longer or continues to lose weight for more than three weeks, he or she may need to be hospitalized," says Dr. Karasu. Watch for self-destructive behaviors, such as drinking too much alcohol or accumulating a large number of tranquilizers or other drugs that could be used in a suicide attempt. "Don't be afraid to ask a person if he or she is considering suicide," he adds.
