Depression is not JUST Depression!
I remember when I was younger, I had what people “diagnosed” as depression. I had been “diagnosed” with that for quite a while, I was put through therapy and always thought life would never get better. At that point I was also a Christian and praying to that god daily, begging for help and a will to be alive, because I really wanted to end my life. One day, I did try to end my life here in this world but didn’t end up doing it. And I still felt the same, heavy depression feelings that I prayed to go away everyday. I had already let that consume me and tried to take my life away. I was already in therapy, which was just a waste of time and money. I even tried cutting myself, thinking it would numb any pain or feelings, that didn’t last long. People also said it was because I had time to think and didn’t have a job (I was still in high school). So I made myself busy with a job and school but it was still there. There were also people telling me to do exercise, that it would help, so I exercised for months, nope, still had that dark cloud over my life. Was anything going to help at all?
After a while, I couldn’t take that life-dragging feeling of depression and came to know about the Tin Yat Lineage. Finding out that the Lineage would actually be able to help my severe “depression” was something I had to go for. Since I have ordained, I can faithfully say that “depression” disappeared in an instant. The Lineage was really a magical help and that long period of depression got swept away. The real Taoist magic has saved my life and provided a bright light at the end of the tunnel.
