Beyond Blue

    magine if all the tumult of the body were to quiet down, along with all our busy thoughts about earth, sea, and air; if the very world should stop, and the mind cease thinking about itself, go beyond itself, and be quite still; if all the fantasies that appear in dreams and imagination should cease, and there be no speech, no sign: Imagine if all things that are perishable grew still - for if we listen they are saying, "We did not make ourselves; he made us who abides forever" - imagine, then, that they should say this and fall silent, listening to the very voice of him who made them and not to that of his creation; so that we should hear not his word through the tongues of men, nor the voice of angels, nor the clouds' thunder, nor any symbol, but the very Self which in these things we love, and go beyond ourselves to attain a flash of that eternal wisdom that abides above all things: And imagine if that moment were to go on and on, leaving behind all other sights and sounds but this one vision that ravishes and absorbs and fixes the beholder in joy; so that the rest of eternal life were like that moment of illumination that leaves us breathless: Would this not be what is bidden in scripture, Enter thou into the joy of thy Lord?

    Hello everyone. I have been off-line & off-life for a while, but in the past year, I've worked myself back into life. My anxiety and depression levels are so much better. Mostly, because I was living in a rundown boarding house in a rundown room with another person. Stuck in a dark, joyless life where everyday was the same. My answer was to self-medicate until I would nod out for the day. And this was my life. Now, I'm back home, with my mom & son and life is so much brighter. I work on the garden and it brings me joy. Joy is something I never thought I'd feel again. I still have a way to go though. My depression still is there and I am working through it. Hopefully, u all will be a help. I'm not alone! Thanks for listening :-)

    Hello...I've been dealing with anxiety disorder and depression for the last 14 years. After trial and error of many kinds of treatment I finally found doctors I developed a good working relationship with 4 years ago. Medicines, therapy and focussing on developing techniques to identify and manage my symptoms have been helping me perform more of my daily duties now. I'm here to learn from others facing the same issues and their experiences and also, be of help to anyone and share techniques that help me.
