    Looking back, there was great intelligence in my 20+ years of depression. There was actually grace inherent in life bringing me to my knees. (Sometimes life brings you to your knees so you can finally be present to your own knees!). There was healing there, right at the very core of my loss of interest in going to work or seeing friends, my abandonment of all hope for the future, my total disillusionment in external, second-hand meaning, my nausea at all things 'spiritual'. Even my lack of interest in getting out of bed held wonders.


    Through my depression, life was stripping me of all my illusions, all distractions, everything that was not real, forcing me to stay so, so close to myself, making me remember what remains after everything external is stripped away. Depression forced me to remember my own presence, essential and free, a miracle, bursting with life. My own presence, yes! - so simple, yet so overlooked, had always been here, closer than breathing, more undoubtable than doubt! My own simple presence - the presence of life itself - was the gift, the Source, what I had always longed for.

    The whole search had been inverted, since a 'self' can never find what it seeks as long as it seeks it. The false 'self' needed to fail in its search for presence to be revealed as the ground and essence of all things. The wave cannot find the ocean - it can only be it.

    I AM HERE.
    I EXIST.
    I AM.
    NOW.

    And that is the greatest miracle of all.

    Sometimes that's where you have to begin, at the very beginning. You have to get back to the origin of life, the place prior to even the "I Am", the raw Unnameable. Depression was the ultimate failure of the 'me', and its eventual surrender. It was a spiritual reboot, an awakening, for sure.

    My longing to die had secretly been my longing to live, to break open my fragile heart to a sacred universe, to touch my own power.

    I know this is not a common, or even popular view of depression: that it contains intelligence, and powerful medicine, so very needed in our weary world. So let's begin a new conversation. Honouring the medical model of depression, but going infinitely deeper. Never turning away from life's whispers.



    Give your questions
    time to breathe.

    And the answers
    will find you.

    “We sit silently and watch the world around us. This has taken a lifetime to learn. It seems only the old are able to sit next to one another and not say anything and still feel content. The young, brash and impatient, must always break the silence. It is a waste, for silence is pure. Silence is holy. It draws people together because only those who are comfortable with each other can sit without speaking. This is the great paradox.”
    ― Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook

    10/16/2014
    "Being able to receive information, healing, and love is a key to being able to transmute energy. We are all looking for love. However, the love that we are seeking is not love that comes from other humans, but divine love. We all suffer from initially attempting to receive this divine love from our parents. Although our bodies were created by our parents, our spirit was created by divine source. Because our parents are egoic in nature, they are not capable of connecting with us on the deep, essential level we crave, but instead project their needs, hopes and fears onto us. Therefore we never feel truly seen or loved by our own parents. We then proceed to evolve different unconscious dysfunctional behaviors in attempts to receive love. For example, we might act out in a relationship, or believe that we can find love by accumulating power, money, or material objects. These are all unhealthy and illusionary paths to receiving the love we truly desire."

    You may have to get what you want
    To discover that it is not enough.

    You may have to lose what you have
    To discover that it was never really yours.

    You may have to lose all of your hope
    To open up to all of life's possibilities.

    You may have to feel a deeper sorrow
    To discover a joy that has no opposite.

    You may have to fail
    To discover that you cannot fail.

    Have courage, friend.
    Your destination is shifting.

    If you are lost,
    you can always find yourself
    here.

    Hokusai Says

    Hokusai says look carefully.
    He says pay attention, notice.
    He says keep looking, stay curious.
    He says there is no end to seeing

    He says look forward to getting old.
    He says keep changing,
    you just get more who you really are.
    He says get stuck, accept it, repeat
    yourself as long as it is interesting.

    He says keep doing what you love.

    He says keep praying.

    He says every one of us is a child,
    every one of us is ancient
    every one of us has a body.
    He says every one of us is frightened.
    He says every one of us has to find
    a way to live with fear.

    He says everything is alive --
    shells, buildings, people, fish,
    mountains, trees, wood is alive.
    Water is alive.

    Everything has its own life.

    Everything lives inside us.

    He says live with the world inside you.

    He says it doesn't matter ifyou draw,
    or write books. It doesn't matter
    if you saw wood, or catch fish.
    It doesn't matter if you sit at home
    and stare at the ants on your veranda
    or the shadows of the trees
    and grasses in your garden.
    It matters that you care.

    It matters that you feel.

    It matters that you notice.

    It matters that life lives through you.

    Contentment is life living through you.
    Joy is life living through you.
    Satisfaction and strength
    is life living through you.

    He says don't be afraid.
    Don't be afraid.

    Love, feel, let life take you by the hand.

    Let life live through you.

    In these times of devastating ecological and social collapse, there are those of us who feel an urgency to attend to the world ‘before it’s too late.’ But the great paradox is that this very tendency to rush anxiously ahead is what got us into trouble in the first place.

    In the Aboriginal way of dreaming, the past and future are embedded in the present. One’s embodiment is the ground into which all continuity flows, so the past can be just as influenced as the future by one’s way of going in the here and now.

    Let the way that you walk be slow. Let us listen to the pleas of our surrounding thirsts. Let us acknowledge the forgetting which drifted us onto this terrifying precipice. Let the grief of it all make its encounter through your remembering. And may beauty come alive then, under your feet.

    ..."They say we are continuous with the universe as a wave is continuous with the sea, just as the sea pushes the waves into existence, the universe pushes us into BEing! One may 'think' that we are all separate and individual, but the only thing that divides you from me are the words which define and label us. Beyond these limiting labels, the pain you feel is no different from what is felt within me, the pleasure you feel is not different than the pleasure that flow throughout me, the joys and pains of everyday life are not only felt within you, but are felt within every-body. Just as leaves are not separate from a tree, regardless of how far the leaf may travel and venture, within IT is eternally carried the divine thumbprint of the tree. So maybe now you can SEE that there is no difference between you and me, for the details of life are not of great importance, but IT is the feeling of experience which IS key. So no matter how far out one may go, no matter how far we get lost in our roles, there will come a point when a total recall takes place in our life, and for most IT will be the day they reach their last breath. For far too many of us waste our lives away, playing roles that we ARE only blind to, striving to become the star of the show. When all along the secret to living a good life was not found by trying to become the star, but BEing the author of our story is what restores the magic in our life, for that IS the force that works behind the scenes of the show, and with this insight we can BEgin to co-create the path that unfolds within our Life!" ~Alistar Valadez...
