when a ''depressed'' person realizes this to its full extent they can stop thinking about how dreary their life is and do something constructive
with it as opposed to moping about and feeling sorry for themselves.
I think you do not meditate enough. Because if you did, you would understand that there are situations and circumstances that do not allow you to
behave "constructive". Beside this, there are people with a mindset, that is more sensitive but less robust than yours. That is no weakness, 'cause
the sensitivity is a great ability.
I had some minor 'disorders', as you call it. And just like iinvision, i faced them with 1-2 hours of meditation per day. My mind became crystal
clear and i became absolutely capable to control my mood, my temper and my thoughts. With one word: My life changed from below average to bright.
My mom has had depression for her entire life. Some months ago i taught her some Yoga, some Qi Gong exercises and guided meditation on love and light.
Visualizations are, once learned, a powerful tool. Only some weeks later she telephones me with a glow in her voice saying: I did the meditations and
people now LISTEN to me.
What she says is, that people can feel her inner sincerity and begin to like and love her.
This makes a big difference in life. But beside of that, you will be able to control your overall state of mind, be it thoughts, or emotions or
A great book by Wong Kiew Kit "The art of Chi Kung". He is one of the greates living Shaolin monks and he cured LOTS of diseases with his art. In
the book, he explains some very simple techniqs that, i am sure, will bring everyone at least some relief in their pain. If you can afford the money,
learn meditation, qi gong or atleast Hata Yoga in a professional school.
For the severe cases: Well, you know yourself that you are facing a damn difficult life. I'm sorry for that. My advice is: Strengthen your mind as
much as you can. Give yourself just 5 minutes in which you honestly resist all thoughts that might appear. relax the body and do as much workout as
you are able to do. Every change will eventually come afterwards
