Can we heal from depression?

She said:
“I am tired of feeling shit. I am tired of living in anxiety, fear, depression, sadness, a mess in my head.

I want to be happy. I want to live my life to the full! I only have one chance at this and I’m pushing 30 and I don’t want to be miserable on a daily basis.”

My answer:
I recognize your experience in mine.

I do not want in any way to indulge in vapid speculation.

Let´s just say that the very basis of depression is cleavage. A rupture in our soul.
An inner constant conflict which perpetuates itself through more conflict.

You are depressed, anxious, sad – it is a fact. On the other hand,
YOU WANT TO BE HAPPY. You want, of course, to live “your” life to the full.
You don´t want to be miserable on a daily basis.

And yet that´s what you are JUST NOW. Sad. Fearful.

Please, try to follow!

You see, if you try to be happy, that is, to be something that YOU ARE NOT JUST NOW, you do nothing but creating and enhancing even more your inward conflict.
Don´t you have enough conflict as it is…?

Can you see that by wanting “to become” something you for the time being are not,
you punish yourself…?
Again, how can we ever become something that we are not just now?
This is pure fiction, and yet, this is the societal fiction we have been conditioned by.

So stop punishing yourself, stop creating even more pain for yourself!
ACCEPT YOUR PRESENT PREDICAMENT. DON´T TRY TO CHANGE!
CHANGE COMES NATURALLY once you have learned to stay with What Is in
affectionate presence. You need to caress your wounds instead of flagellating yourself.

You need your own compassion and loving interest!

So be it!

About julienmatei
I feel an inner urge to express what I see, to communicate and share with others all these impressions. Often the things I see are there, not yet manifest, but waiting... to be observed, talked about, and embraced. These new insights need another approach, a more vivid curiosity... Due to fear and prejudice we prefer to see only "the official" truth - but THE OFFICIAL TRUTH IS DEAD - being dead, it has nothing to give... We can continue pretending Death is fascinating or... we can take the trouble to LIVE... THE NEW has no definition yet... Again, IT requires another "perception", the courage to apprehend everything differently, from a totally new angle, with new confidence and inquisitive touch. This blog is not about interesting concepts, it is about participation... finding new solutions, inspiration, togetherness.

    Of course we can… When we r depressed we see a distorted reality. Whenever u feel awful be sure that ur mind is engaging in illusion. Its not real. And be sure that no pain is ere forever. Highly developed person feels only joy in every circumstance there is nothing to fear of.

    We can heal, yes. Fully.
    Most people only change. They go into the madness of separation. That won’t change anything. Well for the imagined individual it appears to.
    Depression may be a sign of health.
    You see that something is wrong in the world.
    That everyone is crazy…
    Just accept their crazyness without aggression or fear, and you will be healed. You will be sane.
    Can you do it?
    Or are you crazy as well?
