My, my, my … t’is Monday once again,
Hello my fellow “everyday, ordinary, unassuming guru” seekers. If you made it your life principle to always seek right information, not agitation – you’d be shocked at the number of “ordinary gurus” that life would send your way. Aaron seeks right information about the cause of his bouts with depression (see below)
I can be having a great day, and then feel depressed for no reason. What’s that about? Any ideas?
I like the way you think, Aaron
A great way, Aaron, to notice what’s causing you to feel depressed is to become a thought-watcher. Look at what you were thinking about a moment ago. If you are right now feeling depressed, but you weren’t a few minutes ago, then I ask you, “What was your inward self-talk about just before you felt depressed? What were you focusing on? What scene were you watching on your mental screen?” Depression does not pop out of nowhere; it is nourished with negative self-talk, with memories of past disappointments, and with imaginings of future failures. Thought-watching can be a very empowering hobby.
Blessings to you Aaron, Rob
As you start to wake up to how really important your thoughts are to your state of mind, you will be amazed to find that you are the powerhouse when it comes to your moods. No one else can put you in a bad mood without your permission. And for that matter – no one can put you in a good mood without your permission. If it is to be it is up to thee.
Blessings & love to all of you, Rob
PS Right thinking brings bright moods; anything less gives you less brightness.
