So you are depressed! Let me ask you a few questions before you scroll down. Why are you depression? Do you actually care about the “thing” that made you depressed? Do you think you can control your life & your depression?
Often people say “You can’t control what happen in the external world, but you can control what happens inside of you” what if I told you you actually can control the your external reality, and that it’s nothing but a reflection of your inner state of being. The only reason you’re depressed is because you always focus on the negative and what you focuse on you will shall find. It’s a simple a this!
The truth is there’s no good or bad , instead everything is neutral in nature. Our mind is the instrument that define good and bad. When your mind patterns is defining everything as BAD no wonder why you’re depressed!. Negative thinking patterns develop negative low emotions such as sadness, depression, anixity and madness..etc These emotions then develop a reaction and the reaction become your reality. You’re reaction controls the event, the event doesn’t ontrol your reaction. For example when you’re stuck in a traffic jam you can simply enjoy the sunset view, turning this moment into joy or focuse on the crowd and build up frustration.
The key of happiness is to look at everything as it is. With a neutral perspective. No judgment. Exactly how Shakespeare said ” NOTHING IS GOOD OR BAD BUT THINKING MAKES IT SO ” .
This is the absolute life reality. No situation is either good or bad. Instead our thoughts are what define the situation. When you start perceiving things from a neutral perspective you will realise the sense of ease. Because you’re accepting the situation as it is, which allows the energy to flow. There’re no resistance or negativity. It’s such a blessing of inner peace! Furthermore, neutrality is obtained with a very high vibration, (a high level of consciousness). Thus you can’t effortlessly achieve a neutral mentality. Yet you can practice neutrality by being aware of your judgement.
Catch yourself when you judge a situation as good or bad. Then ask yourself the reason behind your judgement. At this moment it will become clearer to you, that it’s your mind and not the reality of the situation. Now! try to look at the situation from a neutral eye; to do so you must search for the good and the bad. Once the two possibilities are present in a situation you’re basically tricking your mind into opening a door of CHOICE. Your mind can no longer play the victim mentality. But you’re now in control and freedom of choice. You can either choose to react positively or negatively.
