Unless you’ve actually dealt with depression, in your very own personal skull, it could be a difficult concept to fully understand. Hell, even if you HAVE, it’s still so confusing. And random? Holy shit this crap has no fucking patterns.
Not until I felt it, lived it, labeled it, was I able to see, first-hand/up close and way too personal, what an obnoxious (and toxic) lying bastard this is. To fight it, whether chemically or physically, is to be a hero. A gawdammed warrior in the fight for livable mental health. Today? I gave my broken-but-hopeful self elf a day off from the battle.
There was an acupuncture appointment, then I rested. And added shit to my new fancy-pants phone’s calendar function. Later, I listened to some uplifting music. When Dan and Maxx got home we lounged on the guest bed (which STILL hasn’t been re-made). No pressure, no stress.
Does this mean that the cycle I’m currently in is over? How the hell should I know? What I CAN tell you is that, I’m a work in progress, just like everybody else. The only difference? Well, I now wake up with messages from SomeWhere Else, to start our day off on some nicely spiritual ground.
Treat any and all beings that we come in contact with as kindly and generously as we possibly can. Including (and possibly most importantly) ourselves.
Returning to our regular rotation today, we’ve come around to one of those delightfully inspiring British messengers.
“Wild Boar ~
Whatever traditions or others expect of you, only to yourself be true.
Jungle lore casts meaty Wild Boar as a banquet for others, but Boar reverses the role of predator and prey proving tradition wrong. If you allow society or individuals to dictate the part you play in life, constant friction between outer persona and inner desire will cause stress, deep unhappiness and, with time, coruscating resentment.
If your role is a sham then your relationships with others will also be false. Boar counsels that you be true to yourself so that you may in turn be true to others.”
Live our lives in lovingkindness, and walk in Truth. It’s for our highest good, and is nothing but beneficial for our loved ones. Which, as we all know, ripples out into the rest of the world.
