well will ya look at that - somebody who's feelin' even worse than me right
now to whom i can be of service!
YES!!!

Scott - listen - depression - it is anger turned within. You must identify
your anger so as to express it in positive ways, such as prayer, meditation,
or beating your head against a brick wall. :-)
(no just kidding, lessee - scanning...)

the mystery - it is mysterious, That's why it is the mystery. Figuring out
the mystery would be utterly gauche. It's just not part of the agenda. Our
brains are not hard-wired to contain or perceive such immense information.
We only get the 10% - remember?
Best we can do is pray and meditate to accept that fact. Sometimes maybe we
be gifted with more conscious awareness, but not when the linear questions
questions questions such as below. You can trust me on this.

just stop the negative. It is not too simplistic i swear to you - just
*shine the Light*, brother - the Light is within you in abundance and
begging to be let out, I can tell. We gotta LET GO all that stuff - all that
negativity and heartache. All those questions - let 'em GO!
Just *trust* in the God/dess - the Light and Love of your heart, and just
*know* that you are perfect as you are, where you are and when you are.
Be happy and be grateful for the Light in your life. Are you homeless? No.
(well - are you?) Do you eat each day? many people on this earth do not. Do
you have your health? Find each and every blessing you have and concentrate
on those and REFUSE those negative vibes - you gotta let go and go with the
flow of life - life is short - it's passin' you by! Soon you'll be dead, and
- who have you loved? Have you loved yourself yet?

The Way is within and within is the most abundant Light of all Divinity -
you just have to go inside to touch It.

Meaning is where you find it. And your thoughts are *things* - they become
words - and words beget actions - soon you have created your whole reality
in this fashion. So just control your thoughts; refuse the negative - accept
only the positive - shine the *Light* - remember amusement is your "best
friend"!

Now next time I'm sayin' "wah wah wah" such as below - please save this and
pass it on back to me. I'm nowhere perfect neither - just passing moments of
lucidity tempered by happy thoughts, good jokes, and a little help from my
friends!
all my best for a perfect world,
yeti

Jan:
That almost sounds like a joke - first study (fill the mind)
and when full, what could be added?
And what would it be to live a "nondual" life?
Intellectual (filled mind) knowledge dictating behavior?
(Could be a definition of "ego-based life")

Without a sense of "i" (sensitivity no longer shielded by "ego"),
wouldn't it be painful to live in ego-based society - not to be
mistaken for "dualistic"?

Hence, unless "upheld by karma", the entire "human interface" would
dissolve and with it, the readiness to talk... As more or less
"preconceived" by the Buddha, some 2500 years ago, in a
less ego-based society...

Sometimes depression is just
depression, a biochemical
imbalance.

Simpler to let anger arise,
flower, and die naturally,
without acting on it. Anger
clearly observed without
resistance is anger rendered
toothless.

Iow, thought has stark
limitations, and even a
mental athlete like Einstein
understood that there are
mysteries far beyond its ken.

This advice is a tad
confusing -- there is a
vast difference between
attempting to "stop the
negative" and allowing it
to arise, flower, and die
naturally, without such
resistance.

Sometimes this is very hard
to manage from a depressed
state.

That sort of resistance is
unlikely to be effective
because it usually creates
internal conflict and
stress that can aggravate
depression.

Now *that* tune comes through
loud and clear, well put!
Without the basis of self-love,
the wisdom of "love thy
neigbor as thyself" is moot.

Yes.

Attempting to "control the
thoughts" is futile and
just stimulates more thought.
Best to let thought happen
without resistance (which
amounts, after all, to more
thought) and simply observe
its activity so as to
understand its transient
nature.

Thanks for that, Val!
