Re: Need Help Curing Depression

I'm certainly not a nutritionist, but I can't help thinking that maybe you have a nutritional deficiency? This has happened to me before and when I changed my diet, I felt 100% better. It's worth investigating, trust me. You'll be surprised just how vital it is to have adequate nutrition and how it...

Need Help Curing Depression

Hello everyone. I never thought I'd be this way again but somehow I've relapsed into the worst depression of my life. I've been put on antidepressants for 1 week which so far haven't been helping and I am constantly throwing up due to who knows what. I've seen a therapist for the first time and he b...

Re: Determinism Makes Me Feel Helpless

Hello Karma. :) It's okay. This thread is definitely large and has a lot of things in it. I agree that depression and anxiety brings many people to an awakening. It brought me to an awakening when I was 16 and at that point I thought that was it. I thought that I knew all the answers. I thought that...

Re: Determinism Makes Me Feel Helpless

I don't see the point in the present moment. I don't even see the point in heaven. I don't see the point in ANYTHING. Those are the thoughts I'm thinking. Is life really nothing but a bunch of perceptions? Perceptions don't change the truth… they can only change our subjective experience. Because I ...

Re: Determinism Makes Me Feel Helpless

Hey Kathleen. :) I am still under 20 yes. I can't help it though. I feel so desperate to understand the world but over and over again it's like I always just end up back in this place... There have been times where things seemed to be going okay but then it's like suddenly my entire reality just sta...

Re: Determinism Makes Me Feel Helpless

I did watch the video Jen. :) As ironic as this sounds... I finally went to see a doctor this week and I've been diagnosed with depression. :( It's hard. I don't even know whether its just the voice in my head or not but I just feel so incredibly sad, hopeless, and frustrated with everything. I don'...

Re: Determinism Makes Me Feel Helpless

Thank you so much Jen for everything that you just said. Reading your paragraphs are like catching tiny glimpses of light in a tunnel filled with nothing but pitch black. What you said about "natural" cause and effect makes SO much sense. So much sense that I feel so thankful to have read it. The na...

Re: Determinism Makes Me Feel Helpless

Thanks web wanderer for your thoughts. I’ve never had anyone explain it to me that way. Hey Jen. Coming from my own experience I’ve noticed that my mind only tends to wander from the present moment if I’m doing something that is a sort of autopilot. For example, There isn’t a whole lot of conscious ...

Re: Determinism Makes Me Feel Helpless

Thank you Jen! You make the distinction between evidence and interpretations of facts / evidence. However, don't we all make different interpretations based off of the same evidence? For example, I once had a conversation with a Pastor at a christian retreat about a bible verse. "Whoever wants to be...

Re: Determinism Makes Me Feel Helpless

Hey Jen! I'm aware of the three rhetorical devices. I never thought of applying them to my own thought processes. If I were to critique my own beliefs then maybe I could learn how to replace the ones that are self-limiting and unrealistic. I'll make more of an effort to study them on my own time. On...

Re: Determinism Makes Me Feel Helpless

Thank you for your reply Jen. :) I really like the way you put that. I find it funny that I don't observe the phrase "why not" very much at all in my thoughts. xD It's true... I breathe in and out anyways. I get out of bed anyways. Although... there have been times where I haven't been able to get o...

Re: Determinism Makes Me Feel Helpless

Hello Jen. I can give credit to most of what I know about these things to all the books I read and the vast amount of information thats available to me on the web. I wouldn't know any of this if it weren't for the revolution of the information age you could say. I suppose you could also attribute my...

Re: Determinism Makes Me Feel Helpless

Why is there a need to control your life ? ?? I'd say that the need for 'control' arises out of a lack of trust, a lack of confidence ... because you think that life does not bring you what you need, you want to control and make things happen according to your own (limited and conditioned) will ......

Re: When To Use Thinking

When is it okay to think? I would say that the problem is not so much " when " to use thinking ... than to be aware when thought is used ... This is why Eckhart recommends not to react immediately ('hot' reaction) when there is some problem at hand, but instead take some deep breath, become aware o...
