YOGA AND DEPRESSION
The mind constantly produces thoughts and creates thought images which it keeps on screening on our mental screen 24hrs. Low awareness together with defective discrimination permit these thoughts to move and direct the feelings and the emotions, with which, according to their strength and force, the mind identifies and thus recognizes them as real.
Difficult and negative thoughts have strength and gravity. Just as the black color absorbs all other colors in it, the same way negative thoughts manage to hold the consciousness trapped.
The expansion of awareness brings discrimination (Viveka) and non identification (Vairaghia), qualities that help in the assumption of self responsibility for whatever happens in daily life, moving hence all levels of existence (body, mind, emotions).
With the Yogic techniques of Meditation, we move the mental force developing awareness. Awareness and internal wondering are the essential gifts of each man, so that he can develop emotionally, expand his higher intelligence and his hidden.
