So you are depressed! Let me ask you a few questions before you scroll further.
- Why are you depression? ..
- Do you actually care about the “thing” that made you depressed?
- Do you think you have control over your reality?
Often people say “You can’t control what happen to you, you can only control what how you react to it”. But what if I told you “you can control both“…The external reality is a reflection of the inner state. When you get your inner self healed, the external world will automatically align. The only reason you’re depressed is because you’re focused on the negative, on what you think you don’t have control on and what you focus on grows. As a circumstance you’re allowing your depression to grow beyond your happiness.
The truth is there’s no good or bad, everything is neutral by nature. Our mind is the instrument that define things. When your mind patterns is defining everything as “BAD”, no wonder why you’re depressed! Negative thinking patterns produce negative emotions and the emotions then create a reaction that attract a certain reality. You’re reaction controls the event, the event doesn’t control your reaction. Furthermore, The reaction you give is the product of an emotion . the emotion is born from a certain mindset or what we call a perspective. It’s like a chain reaction where one thing drag the rest. For example when you’re stuck in a traffic jam you can simply enjoy the sunset view ( turning this moment into joy) or dwel on the fact that you’re “stuck in the crowd”.
The key to happiness is to look at everything as it is, with a neutral perspective. No judgment and exactly how Shakespeare said ” NOTHING IS GOOD OR BAD BUT THINKING MAKES IT SO “. No situation is either good or bad, instead our thoughts is what define every situation. When you start perceiving things from a neutral perspective we will realise the sense of ease to accepting the situation as it is. which then will allow the energy to flow.
