  1. Not every coming down has to be suffering. OP, understand this: "As a child you probably remember having been open emotionally, happy and free to be yourself to a high degree, this was because you were closer to the natural state which is peace/joy. You were hurt by brute people and were repeatedly taught not to express (some of) your emotions (anger, fear, sadness and passion or love). To hide these emotions from others and yourself you created masks (to appear tougher, smaller or a mixture of the two). You also created distracting (thinking) habits keep the emotions from surfacing. Your natural self had to be censored and pushed down, this created the suffering you now experience (i.e. depression, anxiety, frustration, confusion). The emotions are still trapped in the body/mind and can all be found starting at different points along the spine in chronically tight muscles that hurt when pressed upon (example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-uyvhPpk04s) You can heal yourself by simply being willing to be emotional again and you can specifically go into stillness, stopping the avoidance patterns and let the emotions come up naturally faster (meditation), cultivate awareness of your self through being mindful and use tools mindfully to get deeper into your body/life, like: ((de-armoring) massage, eye gazing, being with a master, talking honestly, exercise, love etc.). Eventually you open up to life/yourself completely, you let go into stillness completely and you learn to embody your true nature of pure unconditional love and then you live as a liberated authentic being."
  2. Placebo and anti-depressants can have effects, they just don't cure the root issue and can only act like band-aids.
  3. The people didn't actually get better with just with placebo or anti-depressants. 95%+ or so of people run on negative ego structures (created specifically to deny their emotions, learned as a child) can say : 'OH I AM BETTER NOW', when they are more in an active flow in life when they would be depressed and stuck before, but they are actually not completely better and the negative ego structure loves to get over-hyped when it's in a period of pleasant distraction, but medicine, unless they are aimed at relieving trauma, will never cure any depression by it self. But I'm not going to try and debate this further, just keep following the path and you will see I'm right about the natural state and the emotional suppression on it.
  4. Because it doesn't remove the underlying root trauma and the natural state (free from stored tensions from the past) is peace/joy. And: 'The results of our meta-analysis showed that people got better on medication, but they also got better on placebo, and the difference between the two was small. In fact, it was below the criterion for clinical significance established by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE), which sets treatment guidelines for the National Health Service in the UK. Clinical significance was found only in a few relatively small studies conducted on patients with extremely severe levels of depression.' https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2582668/
  5. Tinkering with brain chemistry which (quite ineffectively) reduces some symptoms does not mean depression can be caused solely by 'a random fault' in brain chemistry, as the brain always follows the mind as well.
  6. Well said until that part, a misconception not based on anything scientific.
  7. He mentioned it. The first pose can be done also with legs more to the front and with a cushion under the but. Doing some easy 1/2min sun salutation-yoga poses before your meditations (which is really nice to do in any case) will probably have you be able to sit in that position like she does, or close to it, after a 3-12 months (?), which is more comfortable than legs to the front. And of course, sitting a chair is bilateral.
  8. It will go as you heal yourself as it's not representative of the natural state. "As a child you were (probably) still open emotionally, happy and free to be yourself to a high degree, closer to the natural state which is peace/joy. You were hurt by brute people and were repeatedly forcefully taught not to express the (some of the) relevant emotions (anger, fear, sadness and passion or love) and thus you created masks to hide the emotions from others and created distracting (thinking) habits to hide yourself from the emotions, the natural self was pushed away and this created the suffering you now experience (depression, anxiety, frustration, confusion). The emotions are still trapped in the body/mind and can all be found starting at different points along the spine in chronically tight muscles that hurt when pressed upon. You heal yourself by simply being willing to be emotional again but you can also into stillness and let the emotions come up naturally as a faster rate (meditation), cultivate awareness of your self through being mindful as much as you can and use tools mindfully to get deeper into your body/yourself/life, like: ((de-armoring) massage, eye gazing, being with a master, talking honestly, exercise, love etc.). Eventually you open up to life/yourself completely, you let go into stillness completely and also learn to embody your true nature of pure unconditional love and you become a living liberated being."
  9. Ramana Maharshi: 'The intricate maze of philosophy of the various schools is said to clarify matters and to reveal the Truth, but in fact it creates confusion where none need exist. To understand anything there must be the Self. The Self is obvious, so why not remain as the Self? What need to explain the non-self? And of himself he adds: I was indeed fortunate that I never took to it (i.e. philosophy). Had I taken to it I would probably be nowhere; but my inherent tendencies led me directly to inquire ‘Who am I?’ How fortunate!'
  10. If you belief it's impossible then you won't really try and then it will seem impossible. Ignorant + arrogant spiritual teachers are the worst. Enlightenment simply is admitting to and untying all the deep emotional knots so you can be fully let go, realize the Self and be in love. You can't be here now fully, be authentic self fully and be free as long as you have suppressed unconscious emotions (in the body). But most people don't want to admit to their deep pains and they get stuck in an idea of entrapment because they think they are beyond crying like a little boy/girl because the emotions were beat out of them and all their lives they have learned to feel fake/'strong' about themselves.
  11. I don't see a difference, every time dissolving/expansion happens, fears/emotions come up. Edit: Well, before I did used to dismiss them and did not progress so much, so having an open attitude is important.
  12. Thinking you'll find it outside your body, trying to skip over suppressed emotions. A common trap because the foundation of the negative ego structure was created at a young ego specifically to act as if one is beyond the sensitive emotional self.
  13. Based on the fact Leo recently said this? I could only find this case: In December 2004, we received an unconfirmed report of a death related to the ingestion of 200 mg of 5-MeO-DMT with some amount of "yage"' So it's rather unbased it seems, again..
  14. That's how an emotionally closed system feels like, the true self is suppressed and you have no real self to express. Learn to get in touch with your emotions (/your body).
