Sat Sri Akaal,
Depression/ Anxiety

Its a state of Meta Physical Imbalance

Depression : Negative Thoughts Beyond Physical Resolution.

Anxiety : Posititve Thought beyond physical resolution.

Balance thinking practical execution leads to balanced approach of life.

There is no depression or anxiety but activation of dream state, physically non executable approach.

For GURSIKH such events shall not appear.

Steps :

1. Stop negative thoughts by NAAM meditation, sometimes reciting any name will work, rather than thinking negative.
2. Try to achieve through physical actions
3. Shed non executable thoughts, and believe in Truth of Nature.
4. All negative thoughts shall come with resolution and possible action.

So for positive thoughts.

META PHYSICAL balance is key to healthy life.

I thought we were a kaum that believed and practised the spirit of 'chardi kala' (rising energy, perhaps mystically referring to the rise of coiled kundalini energy along the spine as it usually happens with advanced spiritual stages)

We saw the worst of days under the mughals and the british and then the indian govt. I wonder how did members of such a mentally and physically strong community got physically weakened by drugs and mentally weakened by depression, anxiety and host of other unholy mental diseases .

In my opinion a true gursikh can never be depressed. Because once u believe in god's hukam, once you really believe that whatever happens in your life is god's deed , for your own good !, I think once you truly realize that, there is little room for depression .

What do you sangat think ?

True. But how many practice what u wrote above..

When you realise that pain and pleasure is One, to begin to see Truth in everything, at every angle, and to accept oneself as Truth, that's when the devotee begins to rise above the mental illness of Maya.

Having said that, counselling is also highly advised for people with illnesses.

Mental illness includes the five thieves, slandering others, being angry at others, in lust, attachment, greed, ego.

While faith and spirituality can offer solace and strength, they may not always provide a complete solution to managing mental health issues.

Since they have started living in the present thinking and analyzing things, and not living in the past. Sikhs are no more fighting force of Khalsa only they are in various professions some of which carry stress. HABITS THAT DRAIN YOUR ENERGY AND CAUSE STRESS: Over thinking, Inconsistent sleeping patterns, Eating junk food, No physical activity, Living in the past, and Negative people. Don’t STRESS out. Change your habits. Wake up and learn the "Art of Stress-Free Living."

In today's fast-paced world, many factors contribute to mental health challenges, including societal pressures, personal experiences, and biochemical imbalances. Seeking support and guidance from mental health professionals doesn't signify a lack of faith but rather a proactive step towards holistic well-being. It's about embracing all available resources, including therapy, medication, and self-care practices, to nurture mental and emotional health. As for myself, it's all about finding what works best for each individual's unique journey towards mental wellness. Personally, I found what I believe are the best HHC Gummies.
