Summary: Emotions… without emotions you feel deadened. But you only want good emotions… unfortunately, for you, you can’t have the good without the bad, life is a roller coaster, and you would hate to be stranded on the top of the peak anyway…
I listened to the audiobook, Molecules of Emotions some 10 years ago in the car. It’s a book written by a scientist, Candace Pert.
I did not set out to be a scientist of emotions… but I was eminently suited: instead of just talking about it, instead of writing about, I can actually verify the “findings”, verify or un-verify the theories by feeling.
Our language doesn’t keep up with the emotions: just like we don’t have words for the billions of colors that can be created with the four base colors of light, red, blue and yellow… and of course white… we don’t have accurate words for the feelings that are a combination, an energetic combination of base feelings.

Is brain fog the same as depression, or is depression associated with brain fog?
My assertion is that if you treat the brain fog, you also treat the depression.
Their overlap is 90%. And because brain fog is not emotional but all physical, the approach to treat it is all physical.
The human body is complicated. Not complex… Complex is still penetrable with the human mind, or with artificial brains. No. It’s complicated… not penetrable.
What different foods, different chemicals, different gut flora do and how they interact is complicated.
Trying to understand it is impossible. Not near impossible: it is impossible. Explaining, finding cures or fixes to symptoms is impractical and ineffective, and yet, this is the level of medicine and science… explaining, finding cures for symptoms, finding fixes to symptoms. Ugh.
So what can you do? Continue reading “Brain Fog or depression… what’s the connection?”
The attitude of submission, dutifulness, and the death of individual and the death of joy
Part of the enslavement process that has been going on for thousands of years, you are robbed of your sense of free will, and your joy.
The chicken coop doesn’t want you to enjoy anything… or more precisely, it separates enjoyment as a special thing on special occasions, not your natural state. Same with happiness.
But the truth is: your natural state is joy. Enjoying the body, the movement, breathing, eating, working: everything.
One of my challenges is to re-awaken, to liberate that capacity that society is hellbent to suppress. Continue reading “Are you fully dead or mostly dead/slightly alive? Depression?”
Life wants more life… and when it can’t… when it is not forthcoming, it puts you into depression.
I had a small private workshop yesterday to test out a methodology that works for me to unstuck me every time.
Without a reliable, count-onable, potent method to unstuck yourself, you may get stuck in misery, inactivity, depression, for a long time.
What moves life, what gives a sense of living, is movement. Upward movement.
What many of us experience is deadness, or the dread of downward movement. It feels that movement, action, is futile
Life is counter-intuitive if your source of intuition is your mind
Most of what you call intuition, isn’t. It is, in fact, reaction. Mostly it is the reaction of your reptilian brain.
The reptilian brain seems to have retained the memories and learned behaviors of our reptilian ancestors, as if it had been us, personally gone through the experiences of a reptile.
Hold your breath when there is danger. Make yourself unnoticeable and blend into your environment unless you are ready for a confrontation, attack first ask questions later… these are all from the reptilian brain.
Depression, schizophrenia, maybe even ADD are reptilian brain reactions. And no, I am not a psychiatrist, but I do observe people, and I look deeper than most psychiatrist: I didn’t learn this, I distinguished this. This is Tree of Life knowledge, not dead. Continue reading “Life is counter-intuitive if your source of intuition is your mind… Get out of your mind!”
Look how hard I try! Look how good I am!
You can have everything, but not at the same time…
In certain areas of life it is obvious… Like eating sugary stuff and weight loss…
But in this work, the work of causing human evolution, from human to human being, I don’t address many obvious things, because the secret of evolution is in the invisible domain.
Invisible doesn’t mean anything woo woo. It means it is not easy to see it with the naked eye.
Or maybe more importantly, you cannot see it until someone points it out. And then you can see it.
These invisible things we call distinctions: once you see it, you see life differently.
This morning I was going through all the 50 or more tabs that were open in my browser… and found a pdf of an article on rackets in Transactional Analysis.
I have known rackets from Landmark, so I started to read the article.
I was stunned. The distinction “racket” in Transactional Analysis is different and a lot more approachable than in the Landmark version…
I’ll do my darned best to start introducing it in this post.
Racket in TA is a feeling, or more precisely said, a feeling you use to extort strokes from others. What you want is strokes, so your spine won’t shrivel up… strokes that puts you in balance. Strokes for which you are forcing, cajoling, the unfortunate other… Continue reading “You can have everything, but not at the same time…”
You’ve heard of the expression: like a deer caught in the headlights syndrome: frozen, seeing the world one way with no escape route.
Most people live their whole lives in that state: see the world in a fixed way.
To one degree or another we are all are like that.
The more of your life is lived in that state, the more powerless you feel, the less options, the less choices you see.
You can examine any two people with different results in life and you’ll see that they are stuck in one view of the world, but their view is different.
Obviously, having new choices, having new options, having different actions available to you is a good thing if you want to have a life worth living.
People who feel out of control, people who feel that they don’t have a say in what happens to them, are people with depression.

As a True Empath I have to feel people’s emotions.
So I am sitting here feeling someone’s emotions who is suffering from anxiety.
He or she, I have no way to know who it is, has to make a decision, I guess.
In marketing classes, in marketing literature it is said that we make decisions emotionally and then justify our decision with reasoning.
But our emotions are not intelligent, they don’t care about reality, and in addition, they are highly manipulable.
Here is an example that may make me look bad, but who cares? Continue reading “Anxiety, worry… Many bad feelings are a result of you having no tools in your tool box… or you not using them.”
The Integrated Good Life & The Four Pillars Of Eudaimonia
Eudamonia: the fulfilled life. The satisfying life. It’s a how… It’s about how much life you have in your years. Fulfilling the potential that you are.
It’s impossible to have “the Good Life” without Integration… but…
One of the hardest steps for students to complete in the 67 step coaching is the step about creating an integrated life.
Why? Because on the Tree of Knowledge of good and evil, there is no such a thing as integration.

On depression: being not at the right place, not in the right environment, not doing the right thing, not being the right one.
Depression is and has been the marker of my road… like the fields on the side of the road mark out the road.
Inevitably oftentimes the road leads into the field, or the field creeps into the road… and a depressed mood, a hopelessness, a futility starts mixing into my life.
It is hard to sleep, or hard to get up, or both.
Nothing changed and everything changed.
I have been watching it with curiosity mixed with worry… it is not pleasant to be depressed.
But today curiosity won out: I stopped worrying about death.
In this article am going to allow Source to guide me to know more, to allow me to be the captain of my ship more…
