Depression - Part 6 By Sri.Sri.Muralidhara Swamiji

Dear All,

Good morning to all of you and have a divine blessed day ahead.

Depression contd…

Those in the early stages of depression can easily come out of it on their
own. However, those in the advanced stage cannot be brought out even
through counselling. Even if told they will only question why they were
not advised earlier. Moreover, they do not possess enough strength to
follow the counselling given. It needs a lot of
patience on the part of those around to bring them out of depression.

Our scriptures discipline our daily routine. For example, though bathing is
only to cleanse the body, our scriptures tell us when to and when not
to bathe. And also bathing is described as a virtuous act. Similarly,
though food is taken to appease hunger, our scriptures tell us when and
what type of food to be had. Having food and
offering food to others are considered as worship. As never seen anywhere else it is only here
in our land that scriptures have been made even for kaama (Sex). All
these only go to show that our feelings/emotions need to be properly
channelised.

Depressed people yearn to be like the experts in various fields - to be like the good musician when they listen to a
good music performance, to be like the cricketer when they watch a
cricket match and so on. This trait is also a mental weakness and is
sheer
foolishness. In each there is a latent talent. There is none in this world who
is 'UTTERLY USELESS'. One should recognize one's own latent talent and nurture
it. A bird in hand is worth two in the bush. Each one should find satisfaction,
joy and have interest in his/her own life. Idleness and garrulousness are
dangerous. Big talkers are small doers. Mental strength and thinking
capacity increases when one reduces talking.
