If you think that life is just a roll of the dice, then life can get really depressing. If you have the generally held belief that we are done-unto beings, life can get really depressing. We have just had a large influx recently by people responding to our emails. We’ve gotten quite a few emails from people who are feeling depressed.
Our society has a tendency to imply that the government is provider of happiness, that the employer can be your provider, etc.
There are a bunch of you out there who have health issues, who have lost their jobs, but here’s the truth; You may not have control over what other people do, but you DO have control over how you respond to it, and you have control over what you DRAW TO YOURSELF IN YOUR LIFE. Every thought creates. And if you aren’t getting the good things you are imagining
Successful people create just a little bit more than they uncreate.
To those folks that are discouraged: It’s amazing what you can overcome in the laws of science with the laws of creation and spirituality.
Before things exist,
Depression can be counteracted by:
Try and think anger and gratitude at the same time. You can’t. Try and think fear and gratitude at the same time. You can’t. Try and think worry and gratitude at the same time. Lack and gratitude. For every negative emotion/thought, there’s one antidote, and it is GRATITUDE.
We had a guy who had to file bankruptcy because he spent so much money on SELF HELP stuff!
Here’s the secret: no one can help you or do anything for yourself, but you can do it for yourself!
If you can’t think fear, anger, etc., …try and think depression and gratitude at the same time. It’s literally an oxymoron.
It’s really hard to un-think depression. However, the human mind can only handle one thought at a time. If you can think gratitude, the painful emotion of depression can occupy that same space in your thoughts. So by replacing the depression thought with the gratitude thought you have uncovered the secret and actually can un-think depression.
You can give people a hand out or a hand up. A hand out makes them dependent and they have to come back and back. A hand up makes them independent.
You are actually the only one that can do it yourself.
Who we are and what we are, determines our attitude, which determines our altitude.
Until next time, may you have the peaceful and charmed life that you deserve.
