7 Secret Facts No One Tells You About Your Depression

(Answers To Frequently Asked Questions Related To Depression:)

1. What is depression?
Depression is a blessing in disguise. It is an "engine" that propels the affected by depression individual towards spiritual awakening. Medically misinterpreted as a mental disorder caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain, depression in reality has a lot more to do with the person's Spirit (Soul), and a  lot less with the brain, or the mind that it is commonly believed. Perhaps that is exactly why, even if you yourself, or someone else tells you;  -- "Just snap out of it already" --  it is not something that you can do, no matter how hard you try. If depression was in fact a matter of mind, -- you could do it, but because it isn't, you cannot get rid of depression simply by manipulating your mind. There is a lot more to it.

2. Isn't depression a mental illness or mental disorder?
No. It is not. It is perceived as such by the majority, especially by those in the filed of psychology, but then again, only few centuries ago, the majority of people perceived Earth to be the center of the Universe. Depression isn't any kind of disorder. Depression isn't even the real issue. Depression is just a symptom of the true issue here, which is the Soul's desperate desire to be perfectly aligned with the Love (the Soul's Source) once again.

Here is a definition of the word disorder; -- a state of confusion, disruption of the systemic functioning or neat arrangement, a mess.

The question is:  -- who, or what is really here in disorder? Is it the depressed person who is acting strange in the eyes of others, while attempting to find his or her true self, or is it everyone else around who accepted the illusion of the world we live in, as a real world? Believing that we are separated from each other, and believing that the world outside of us, as opposed to inside of us, is real -- now that's a real disorder! A depressed person has the biggest chance to arrive to such realization that the world we live in is an illusion, and the real world resides within us, and therefore a depressed person is the least disordered person among us!  

3. How do we treat depression effectively then?
We treat depression effectively when we look closely at the core of the issue, and we shift our focus on the Soul, the Spirit of the person. When a person finally becomes his or her true self, when he or she remembers who they really are, on a broader spiritual level, is when a permanent healing of depression takes place. The time frame, in which such spiritual journey towards the recovery might need to expend through, as well as the tactics that need to be assumed, might very for each individual. Each person is unique, and therefore each journey is just as unique. The guidance can be useful, but only the person directly affected by depression is able to do what's needs to be done to heal.

4. What is it mean to be depressed? 
To be depressed means to have a higher calling. It means to be dissatisfied with the superficial world that the human beings had created. It means to believe that there must be something else... It means to be super sensitive, which contrary to the common believe, is a very good thing -- it is a gift indeed. To be depressed -- it means to be gifted, to have a gift. A gift of seeing things in a different way. A gift of being able to see the connections between everything.

5. How do I know if I'm depressed?
A depressed person refuses to accept the fact that the current world we live in is the only world that there could be. That is why he or she has such a hard time with dealing with others and with living in this world in general. A depressed person is yearning for a better world. A depressed person, knowingly or unknowingly, is yearning for the unconditional love. For being able to live in a world where self-expression is encouraged and not oppressed, or ridiculed by others instead. A depressed person is attempting to bring a change for a better, to his or her life, and to the lives of other, human, and non-human beings.

6. Who gets depressed the most?

A person who goes through hell, emotionally, physically, and, or mentally speaking. However that person often doesn't realize that he or she is the closest to being able to experience the opposite of such hell -- the so called state of Nirvana. A person who has incredible inner strength, maybe even without knowing it. Someone who believes that he or she has to carry the weight of the world on his or her shoulders, and that is not because of the self-perceived self-importance, but because that person intuitively understands that we are all in this together, that we are all one.

7. Should I be embarrassed, or feel guilty for being depressed?

Absolutely never! You should be proud, in fact. You should be proud that you are awakening spiritually. You should be proud that you have withstood so much already. You should be proud that you have survived what easily could have been fatal. You should be proud that you are here. You don't need to prove anything to anyone, just like you don't need to do anything in order to be "somebody." Your being is what counts. You are - you - and that's what counts! Just be you, you're doing it wonderfully. Even if it means being depressed for the time being, until you can get better. Depression doesn't define you. Don't ever try hiding it. Depression is your friend, maybe even your closest one, and I mean that in a good way.

I see the above illustration as a metaphor...I see the "mentally handicapped" leading those who have perfect eyes, but yet cannot see...
