When you are depressed, that has nothing to do with you at all. So go ahead and let the depression do what it wants to do. When you feel lost…life has no purpose and meaning for you, and you’re in despair and sad and afraid… when you experience those feelings, I want you to know that they are completely unimportant to you. You think they’re important. You do. That’s why you go along with them. Now fight back.
The next time any kind of dark spirit from your dark intellect leaps up and tries to make you sad…you’re all alone in this world, and nobody can really help you, you know you’re on your own, you don’t have any friends, you don’t have anybody close and your finances are bad… when any kind of gloomy thought or feeling comes up to you, I want you to assert firmly and forever: “That strong feeling I am feeling has no importance at all to me.”
What’s the connection with you? There’s no connection. You think there is, from years and years and years of believing the lie.
