Curing Depression?

I Don’t Know why we haven’t “cured” depression.

I do know, I have only been truly “depressed”, when wholly obsessed with my Self.

I am really enjoying these fresh, tangy mints.

    I dont know why and probally never will , all i know is that even when i am doing anything for anyone it is still about me
    and this gives me the shits ,the only time i have a little bit of relief is when i say a prayer to what i dont know .

      Hi ‘Still Learning’,

      Perhaps that small relief is because in saying a prayer, we are humbling our Self in recognition that there is / must be Some Thing or Some One far greater than Me? Humility is the opposite of Self… so maybe the simple act of prayer starts to turn the Self-ish tide?

    Hi TBI

    I dont why it works but that little prayer goes along way to silence the head, to take notice of the other people in this spaceship they call earth, and to take time to incourage other people to do the right things by them selfs, not saying i was’nt
    self obsessed today just saying i did’nt walk around all day with
    my head stuck up my arse thinking it is all about me and feeling sorry for myself ,walking does good for depression .

      David, perhaps the reason “why it works” is that the very act of prayer takes our mind’s attention off Me? Instead, I’ve (briefly) turned my attention away from Me, and towards Another. That is an act of humility in itself, don’t you think?

      Also, as I think you’re saying, whenever I truly notice others, again, I’m not noticing Me.

      100% agree with you about walking…. I enjoy going for long, slooooowww walks all the time 🙂

      Take Care, and “Vaya con Dios” my friend.
