Depression

In my business networking group, several members have been proclaiming that they refuse to participate in the economic troubles.  While such a bold statement may be a bit foolhardy (much of the worst of it has not hit us – yet – in the South, but it’s likely to before a year is out), you have to admire their conviction, and the passion behind the statement is to be taken very seriously.

Economic depression results from psychic depression.  And depression is the very soul of evil, the very opposite of life.  Somehow, we have turned from affirmation to denial, we have sunk perilously close to the quicksand of depression, we have forgotten how to trust.  The hard part is, even though we have lost our faith because those we trusted have proven to be untrustworthy, we are challenged to regain it.  We must be trustworthy ourselves, and we must also trust; it is the only way to emerge from this trouble.

Some of you may know what personal depression is, and if so, you understand this.  You understand the extreme danger in letting depression have its way.  You know that while the world may try its hardest to shake your convictions, you must persevere in the belief that your dreams can be realized.  The alternative is simply not an option.

Let’s spend the weekend immersed in our dreams, specifying and tailoring them to the finest detail, savoring the promise of faith and disallowing the evil of depression.
