    I think what you have written is what I have been experiencing for a few years. I agree with you heartily.
    If it is OK I am attaching a few things that have helped me tremendously.
    Thank you so much for what you have sent.

    Here we are at the end of another year!
    At this particular point in time the Earth, we and all people live on, is suffering tremendously! Everyone on this Earth! The air we all breathe, the water we all drink and the land that provides for the food that nourishes all of us are all suffering.
    However, at this point in time we have the knowledge and the ability to correct the problems. Or at least at this time to begin to correct them. The easiest way to do this is to realize we are all one. Yes, we are all human beings and we all have the same needs.
    One of the ways to begin to care for the Earth that supports ALL of Mankind is to make Unity and Peace happen. This need not need not be done by having more wars and killing more people by murdering them in battles that are not to protect our country or others! Most of the present battles are for greed to get something that those who cause the want and try to make others think that we need. At this point it seems to be oil and or ways to move it out of other countries so that we can have it, plus more money for those who sell it.
    We know now and have the ability to stop the pollution that is happening all over this planet, the Earth, which is our home.
    We can run cars in other and cleaner ways to not put out the pollution that is prevalent every where now. It only keeps happening because those who sell oil and gas want more money!
    We can have clean water as well by stopping pollutants from factories which we have the ability to do. They also pollute our Earth that has always grown the food we eat.
    All that is heard from a great many people now is “ I don’t care” or “I am only one person and cannot do anything about it“!
    All of our problems are caused by the large companies who employ lobbyists (workers) and pay them well , to bribe OUR REPRESENTATIVES, that we hire and pay them well, with millions of dollars that come from big businesses which get all of their money from us who are the consumers of the products they sell!
    To also help we need to reduce our populations so that there will be enough food to feed all of Earths people. I don’t believe it is wrong to use birth control. If a sperm does not meet an egg then no life is being lost by having to have an abortion!
    Also many of our other problems such as drug use and alcoholism will be reduced. There are many in the world who suffer from depression because there is no work for them to support their families and about all they can do to feel better is to have sex and bring more, poor, children into our diminishing world. Also others use alcohol and drugs to relieve their depression.
    It is a sad thing to see all of these things that are happening on the Earth, our home. Especially because we do have the ability to make the changes to make our lives better.
    All we have to do is to have Peace on Earth and good will towards each other. We have the ability so lets start moving in the right direction!
    We can also make plenty of electricity without using millions of toms of petroleum products and coal to run generators that will put out more pollution.
    We can have electricity from the sun or running water. We can have autos with little or no pollution as well! So let’s get moving before it gets any worse.
    War is not the answer! We need Peace and Unity to Heal ourselves and what is being done by all that is a great part of what is happening to OUR PLANET the EARTH.
    Lets hope that 2012 will can be the beginning of the change we need!

    We may pray and pray for peace in the world but peace is not going to come from heaven. Peace will come from within man who has all that he prays for within himself. We at this time seem to always look to someone else to make what we would like to see occur, actually happen. Many, very many say there is nothing I can do or I don’t care. If that is so then nothing will happen. We all have the ability to work with each other throughout the world to make peace a reality. Greed seems to be the word that keeps us from making peace a reality. Instead of greed we need to share equally all that earth provides. At this time with our population the size it is and the changes in our climate the things we all need to survive are becoming less and less. We all have the ability, as man, to make the changes necessary to preserve our planet and our life. It is not going to come from heaven but from our labors here on earth to make it happen. We are the arms and legs of heaven and only we can make happen what we pray for from heaven. An easier way to say this would be that heaven operates through all of us. When those of us of different religious backgrounds pray our prayers all go in the same direction and the being or spirit that is within us all comes from that direction.

    I speak to my inner self many times per day saying only,
    Peace, Heal, Unity. I find that these three words have helped my life to improve. Peace for the world, Healing of myself as well as our home the Earth, and Unity for all of us who live on the Earth our home.

    I have recently had some stents put into my heart and the medications that I must take have a lot of side effects. I began a month or so ago to speak to myself as I said ago
    and have created a peace for myself both inner and outer. I also find that many of the side effects of the meds I have been taking are going away and I am able to function much better physically as well as mentally
    Thank you again, Neil Jones

  • […] The diagnosis is established by how you describe your depressive symptoms to your healthcare provider, and regardless of why you became depressed, drugs are almost always offered as the primary treatment (as if all cases of depression are due to “chemical imbalances” in your brain when in reality only a small number of cases are entirely due to such an imbalance).  Unfortunately most types of depression are treated predominantly with drugs even though the very best science indicates that the causes of depression are multifaceted, usually due to problems in your environment, and in a smaller subset of cases purely to genetic and biological factors.  Most commonly the reason for your depression involves pronounced stressors or difficult life circumstances that overwhelm your normal ability to cope, resulting in distress, feelings of helplessness or hopelessness, demoralization, and finally depression.  Therefore the starting point for understanding and resolving your depression should be talking to a trained mental health professional to learn skills to work through and sort out your feelings, rather than take a drug.  As described in prior articles, depression can be a sign or symptom related to complicated feelings and life dilemmas (see “The False Self Syndrome Depression Syndrome” & “Moving Through Depression, Anxiety & Stagnation by Finding a Path With Heart”.
