We have heard of this term often – Friends, family, celebrities, it spares no-one and is often met with a clueless ‘What should one do now’ fear of what can happen next.
With my understanding of spirituality and the workings of Depression, here is what i would recommend anyone affected by ‘Depression’ to understand.
“We are not in control. Everything is dying from the moment it is born, as the Buddha taught. Everything is made of crystal. And therein lies our greatest sorrow and deepest depression, but also our greatest potential for joy and liberation.” – Jeff Foster
“There are two core fears: losing what you have, and not getting what you want. There is one solution: Falling in love with where you are.” – Jeff Foster
The constant assertion of belief is an indication of fear. — Krishnamurti
“The attempt to escape from pain, is what creates more pain.” ― Gabor Maté
“The fact is that we don’t want to be free. What is responsible for our problems is the fear of losing what we have and what we know.” ― U.G. Krishnamurti
“If you take yourself to be the body and mind only, you will die! When you discover yourself as awareness, the fear of death will not trouble you any longer.” ― Mooji
Emotional Release – Releasing old blocks and stuck emotions, as anger, pain, fear and jealousy, we free up a space inside us which is longing for love, trust and joy.
