Depression is like this, your heart is opened and experienced through the filter of false reality and experience. At that point the mind comes along and offers its services in order to 'fix' the situation. Resist all urges to fix your depression. Watch the impulse to change your predicament. And finally sacrifice your suffering at the altar of eternity.
There are people that would say that depression can be a chemical imbalance. These people are so addicted to suffering that they have to bury all the layers of it deeper and deeper within a medicated underground prison.
When your depression comes, welcome it. When your depression goes, thank it. When your depression overwhelms you with insanity, embrace it deeply.
If you are on depression medication, no matter what the cost, get off of it.
To have courage is to burn in the fire of your reality.
And there is one key to all of this...
Your body is the key. Your soul is the door. Sit and listen to your body. Channel your body, your body wisdom. Ask your body specifically what it needs to flow into greatest bliss. Then follow that right direction.
