Anxiety and depression are not to be suppressed, or controlled, they are very important tools natures uses as ways of informing in us that there is something wrong with the way we are currently living in the world, it's the sign you are waking up to all the bull shit that is human dictatorship,
Anxiety and depression are indeed signs and symptoms that something is causing the suffering. One of the better ways to live in world is to focus my thoughts and control them when I need to do do , to save my life for instance.
Well you can't actually die, die is just another idea, part of the play of consciousness.
But yeah, in the pretend world of I am going to die, dying does happen apparently...but dying is not real, you will never know death.
And in the pretend world, we can think we are controlling our thoughts by realising they are just passing feelings that come and go...and once we realise that they do not belong to us, we can allow them to be there and not fear them knowing they are not who we are.
What we are is presence, presence is not depressed, a tree is not depressed, nature is not depressed, depression is just a feeling like any other feeling, it comes and goes....it's not who we are.
Allow the depressive feelings to be there without being afraid of them and watch them melt away...attachment to them will increase the depression because what we usually focus our attention on will grow like wild fire..it's like you are feeding the fire by thinking and believing it is real...
Sorry for the sloppy writing, I'm typing this in a real hurry.
