Life is busy. And as busy parents working people living life to the best of her abilities, we often close ourselves to new opportunities. We search for energy leaks and we say no to opportunities to connect with others, Sharing the best of our being this with the world. Eventually we close ourselves so much that the only energy we’re living on is that of ourselves and not of the greater good. This is unfortunate. The world as a whole outside has more energy then we have alone. Eventually Energy depletes and we become depressed.
This is diffcult to picture, giving more when you have nothing to give.
The cure for depression is getting more of yourself. Now that seems really hard when you have almost no energy to give to anybody else, but what it does is opens you up to the love and connection that we share in the world together. I know this first hand.
