My Elbert: Neurodiversity & The Theory Prudential Pluralism

Discernment of God’s Perception- even, middle or flow of “what’s best”
…For the neurodiverse…Why neuropedagogy

We can identify goals and potential solutions to problems which cause emotional turmoil; And seek to improve communication and coping skills; strengthen self-esteem, atonement and connection (unity) with God, promote positive behavior and optimal mental health and wellness…

My neuropedagogy also includes a theory called “prudential personalism”. The theory is called “personalism” because the goal or purpose is the flourishing of the human person; since the human person is clearly one thing or set of things and one set of needs rather than another, it provides an objective norm that rescues it from total subjectivism. The fact that personalism has a supernatural dimension is the reason why excellent spiritual care is essential, and why we are not obliged to use every means possible to preserve physical life. We are created to “know, love and serve God in this world, and to be happy with Him in the next.”

Note: * The theory is “prudential” because, unlike a deontological system, it maximizes human freedom and creativity (wisely real), allowing diverse paths to the same goal or purpose, depending on circumstances. Because they focus on obedience and conformity of the will; unlike, deontological ethics which often results in an impoverished view of the human person, one in which the person lacks autonomy and self-determination and has but a limited ability to integrate grace in the form of perduring moral qualities, or virtues. “Prudential personalism” is a theory that focuses on the flourishing of the human person. It is “prudential” because it allows diverse paths to the same goal or purpose, depending on the circumstances, and because it maximizes human freedom and creativity while drawing on the full range of human decision-making capacity. It is “personalism” because the goal or purpose is the flourishing of the human person, based on an evolving understanding of the human person that provides an objective norm and rescues it from total subjectivism. The theory draws on a Christocentric principle that advocates interpreting all scripture in the light of the full and final revelation of God in Christ. The theory is firmly rooted in teleology and has a supernatural dimension, which is why excellent spiritual care is essential.

[In regards to education], prudential personalism is based on a solid and evolving understanding of the human person, and it draws on the full range of human decision-making capacity. In the context of neuropedagogy, “prudential personalism” aims to promote optimal mental health and wellness by improving communication and coping skills, strengthening self-esteem, atonement, and connection with God, and promoting positive behavior. It recognizes that the psyche is the ego-conditioned individual’s “mind,” and that discernment is required to better understand what our health care and educational mission requires of us in response to the particular challenges and opportunities that emerge in the course of organizational life.

The weary need discernment upon their ego state…
Psyche would be the ego conditioned individual’ “mind’ wherein knowing “their being”; meaning what one is as a person and why here on earth through ontological training from family, culture, religion, education etc. which that” …is an ego states-they are an adaptation to various life circumstances, rather than innate states of being. Sometimes a person becomes stuck in an ego state, or finds that an ego state is no longer beneficial. A child abuse victim, for example, might get stuck in the role of frightened child.

What is discernment?
Definition of discernment. 1 : the quality of being able to grasp and comprehend what is obscure [such as “one’s life purpose”, “reason for being”, ‘threatening life circumstances’]; as well, a skill in discerning. 2 : an act of perceiving or discerning something.

Note: Through Saving Faith Receive
Discernment which includes discipline training; Saving Faith is the knowledge of, trust in, and commitment to Jesus Christ that is required for salvation:
To know wisdom and disciplined training;
to understand words of discernment;
To receive disciplined training in prudence,
right living, judgment and uprightness.
[Retrieved from Arms, D. R., ed. (2019). The Christian Counselor’s New Testament and Proverbs (J. E. Adams, Trans.; Fourth Revised Edition, Pr 1:2–3). Institute for Nouthetic Studies.]

Discernment is best understood as a “habit of mind and practice” to better understand what our health care mission requires of us in response to the particular challenges and opportunities that emerge in the course of organizational life. Discernment can enhance a decision-making lens, tool or process by constantly inviting those who discern into a deeper, broader and more reflective relationship to the evidence gathered, the people engaged in the process and the good that is imagined.

NOTE: *ARAS (thalamus) -including: Thymus, Pons, RAS (HPA & ACC)/GUT…DESPAIR of having anger and shame (worry/strife, idolatry & fear, sloth of the SUPEREGO)

Woe To: Discernment of Meekness & Justice instead understand His Will and fear of the Lord (awe-filled reverence and profound respect). [“…with behavior that is a credit to the summons to God’s service, living as becomes you] with complete lowliness [in heart and mind]: idolatry of the heart, needs justice (kindness, unselfishness, gentleness, mildness)and sloth of the mind, needs meekness (patience, compassion, goodness), both need discernment of love (righteousness, humility, knowledge, wisdom) through bearing with one another and making allowances because you love and understand one another. Ephesians 4:2 AMPC

Note: SHAME IS THE OPPOSITE- ASUNETOS (Strong’s #801 — Adjective — asunetos — as-oon’-ay-tos) “without understanding or discernment” (a, negative, sunetos, “intelligent, understanding”), is translated without understanding” in Matthew 15:16 : Mark 7:18; Romans 1:31; 10:19 , RV, “void of understanding” (AV, “foolish”); in Romans 1:21 , RV, “senseless” (AV, “foolish”). synetós(an adjective, derived from 4920 /syníēmi, “to understand by synthesizing”) –properly, “personal” understanding that results from correlating facts (concepts), i.e. as understanding works in keeping with one’s own perspective properly, without comprehension; foolish because incoherent (failing to “put facts together”)…See NOUS BELOW

What is discernment meekness? (Divine Love)
Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me, for I am gentle (meek) and humble (lowly) in heart, and you will find rest (relief and ease and refreshment and recreation and blessed quiet) for your souls. [Jer. 6:16.] Matthew 11:29 AMPC Lowliness of heart and mind are indispensable in our approach to our Heavenly Father and our hope of receiving revelation and sanctification. “Let nothing be done through
strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves” (Philippians 2:3). AND [Jesus] said to His disciples, Temptations (snares, traps set to entice to sin) are sure to come, but woe to him by or through whom they come! Luke 17:1 AMPC Rejoice and exult in hope; be steadfast and patient in suffering and tribulation; be constant in prayer. Romans 12:12 AMPC

Note: Meekness is an attribute of human nature and behavior that has been defined as an amalgam of righteousness, inner humility, and patience. Meekness is essentially an attitude or quality of heart whereby a person is willing to accept and submit without resistance to the will and desire of someone else. [Retrieved from]. “…because from the squeezing of milk outcome curds, from the squeezing of the nose out comes blood; so too from the squeezing of anger out comes strife. [Also see idolatry] Arms, D. R., ed. (2019). The Christian Counselor’s New Testament and Proverbs (J. E. Adams, Trans.; Fourth Revised Edition, Pr 30:33). Institute for Nouthetic Studies.

Basically: Discernment of Meekness- Gentleness
rids idolatry due to deceit (despair) and anger, acting in resentment
by releasing unto trust believing in the Love with trust
loving-kindness, complete joy (see Mercy).

What is discernment of justice? (Divine Honor)
Definition of discernment. 1 : the quality of being able to grasp and comprehend what is just, especially by the impartial adjustment of conflicting claims or the assignment of merited rewards or punishments. The administration of law, especially the establishment or determination of rights according to the rules of law or equity. The quality of being just, impartial or fair, and when to seek forgiveness of others. The
maintenance or administration of His justice: “Jesus responded, not just by picking out two commandments at random. He cited one commandment that pertains directly to man in relationship with His God: “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.” He said, “This is the first and great commandment.” Mathew 22″34-40. Comes arrogance [Pride]—comes shame; but wisdom is with the humble. Arms, D. R., ed. (2019). The Christian Counselor’s New Testament and Proverbs (J. E. Adams, Trans.; Fourth Revised Edition, Pr 11:2). Institute
for Nouthetic Studies.

Basically: Discernment of Justice- Greatness
rids sloth due to guilt (despair)-judging and shame, acting in disrespect or deceit
by despising releasing unto believing in the Love of peace-loving (Faith)
Saving faith is expressed in baptism, is joined with repentance…
• making restitution for wrongs committed (1 Chr 21:22–26)
• abasing oneself before the wronged party (Gen 33:3)

Nouns is where He works through love into our “Leb” (Living Embodiment of Christ In Us) at night. Love leads to grace through Faith- Christians are not justified by such things, but nor are they justified without them. It is only faith that saves, not because faith is greater than love or any other virtue, but because faith unites believers with Christ, in whom and because of whom they are accepted. So faith alone justifies, but the faith that justifies is never alone, it never exists without love and good works, complete faithfulness (see Grace).

Dr. Charles Stanley states, “It is simply [with meekness] dwelling in God’s presence without any visual or verbal distractions. He encourages believers to just sit in a dark and quiet room with the Lord.” “Obey God and leave all the consequences to Him.” “We can be tired, weary and emotionally distraught, but after spending time alone with God, we find that He injects into our bodies energy, power and strength.” Charles Stanley, preacher of His Word- The Gospels.
