    I just read an interview with U Tejaniya in which he honestly and candidly discusses his bouts with depression. He's doing better ever since he stopped rejecting the feeling and began to investigate it with friendliness and acceptance.

    >> This is tough for me. Definitely do-able in specific instances, but overall.... I try to create. To create peace in my life, for example. I think action is required at times. What a dull life if everyone sat around being aware, and doing nothing. I think that's a goal for some, and it may be good in a world where others are "doing" and providing entertainment. But if EVERYONE just sat and was "aware..." and didn't try to create anything... ever? Dunno. Not right IMO.

This is the quote on the recovery ring I've had for 2 years. I love it!

See this is what bothers me about all self-help, recovery, New Age crap: When the bud was a bud, it wasn't struggling to be a flower. Nin's view here is a human looking-back view that explains old pain and struggle, while still not embracing responsibility. BE the bud and then BE the flower, but remember: Flower not better than bud.

Courage. Do your best everyday - that's all that you can do.

It's better to cross the line and suffer the consequences than to just stare at that line for the rest of your life.
