Can you fully recover from depression from a drug?

You should consider reading the novel, Flowers for Algernon, by Daniel Keyes

Not the movie, the book.

Why, you would ask... Because it shows you what happens when you get to unearned heights.

In the book, Charlie undergoes an operation that makes his brain perform at beyond genius level... only to go back to become mentally handicapped... again.

Because a living being is an organism, you really cannot gift it a higher level than the whole organism. It cannot carry the weight... and it collapses to where it was before the "gifting" or below. Continue reading "Can you fully recover from depression from a drug?"

Feelings, emotions… what should you do with them?

Most people have one or two tools in their tool box... And what is even stranger: they don't want any more. Why?

Some of you cannot deal with complexity, and therefore you will deny your right to feel feelings. And some of you will indulge your feelings and never look, never ask any probing questions that could let you see what is really going on...

What am I talking about?

In the Playground program, always starting new groups, we attempt to bring clarity to life, we attempt to reclaim our power over our lives by separating what life seems to be, what seems to be happening in many different ways. One of these is having a "reality" side, everything a Martian could see or detect, and another that is all words. Continue reading "Feelings, emotions… what should you do with them?"

Brain Fog or depression… what’s the connection?

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?"

Can depression be alleviated with coaching? A coach reports…

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

The depression resulting can last days, weeks, months... Depression recreates its cause... no movement. Continue reading "Can depression be alleviated with coaching? A coach reports…"

Why can’t you change? What is keeping you the same? Updated…

In spite of The sight, and other capacities newly available to you, You don't seem to be able to change...

You have been unsuccessful getting their guidance, getting your information from outside of the mind.

This manifests, among others, in your inability to muscle test correctly.

The question is why?

The phenomenon, what actually seems to happen is this: you understand where to look, how to look, and you nod rapidly. You bring great examples to show how you just succeeded in using the new capacity... but I can smell the mischief... you are trying to throw me off my tracking.

Now, I say "you" but who is this "you"? What aspect of a person am I talking about?

In this case, the dominant aspect, the ego your delusional self, who you fancy yourself to be, your "precious I" you defend at all cost.
