WSJ post on their FB Page. This post is based upon this article.
I have read one book on same topic ‘Depression’ by ‘Modita Van Zummeren’ that is based upon her own experience of coming out of depression by a MBBS doctor through Meditation available at Amazon. Her podcast ’From Pain to Being’
My comments on WSJ’s FB post may be of some help to you too-
Yoga was a discovery by Patanjali so that a human body could regain the quantum state lost after childhood by creating harmony between nature and body. My blog https://Philosia.in for more. Now a days Hindus are promoting Yoga in India and in the world as a way to boost health-what a shameful act! The Midas touch of Yoga has not lost its sheen but people have failed to raise up to the Patanjali’s standard. Even his name is being used for commercial purposes!
Now spiritual thinking is again on the same track.
Actually spiritual thinking is used as the very first step to progress to the next step of meditation (Book of Mirdad by Mikhail Naimy is one strongly suggested here as a must read again and again in life ) and through meditation the third step of Satori is achieved. Through this third step human being could regain its lost innocence after the childhood or experience the quantum state of being zero and infinite at the same time-Jesus called it ‘Entering the kingdom of God’. It is sure help in depression but every human being has infinite potential too, so no need to stop at that only.
Hi ….. I write my comments from my personal experiences of my inner journey. This post may include teachings of Mystics around the world that I found worth following even today. For more about me and to connect with me on social media platforms, have a look at my linktree website for connecting with my social media links, or subscribe my YouTube channel and/or listen to the podcasts etc.
I begun with a simple awareness meditation and Zen meditation. You can begin with your choice of meditation or prayer according to your religion or choice today itself, because by procrastinating and postponing we have already lost a big part of our life. By practicing awareness meditation during work as per this YouTube video, living simple &authentic life and doing your job in hand to your best – you create favourable situations for growth of the seed within into a tree of consciousness.
