Re: My deep depression and search for spirituality


>>>In that case you may really like "When Things Fall Apart.." by Pema Chondron. It says exactly the opposite of "all is well". It says that there is no security, we're all on constantly shifting ground, there's nobody in the sky that's going to reach down and make it all better, etc. For some reason this really snapped me out of feeling depressed when I read it. I think it's because Depression is often seated in the sadness that comes from believing in the illusion of security, permanence and even significance in the world. I.E. when a family member passes or becomes estranged, when job security ends, relationships end, our bodies and minds change for the worse, etc. All these things happen eventually, its our own delusion of permanence that makes the inevitable seem catastrophic.

sounds like 'pema chondrin' stole a page or two from 'U.G. Krishnamurti'... that is his take on the subject... a logic that is very hard for most to understand... but i get bored with the way even he too is off track... but he does bring to light... or at least exposes some of the brainwashing that most of us have been exposed to... which is a great deal to do with why society is so screwed up...
