“We think you should start eating antidepressant medicine. You have mild depression? “said the psychologist to me.
That could not be true!
Every day I thanked for things and events in my life. Or, did I only gratify my gratitude while my thoughts were somewhere else?
I did not want to medicate myself!
I almost never even ate headache pills.
I watched all my dogs lying in my office in a wonderful peacefulness; “Why are you not depressed?” I thought.
I knew that some animals took antidepressants. Perhaps because of a broken heart, just like we humans.
Animals living with together with people learn your behaviors.
But we who are free will not become depressed, because we live in the present moment. We do not think forward because it does not exist yet.
In addition, we honor our own when it’s time to say good-bye. We do not allow the sorrow to manifest.
The animals do not always reach you. There are many animals waiting for you to call to them for help.
Was my mild depression an awakening?
Is depression an awakening?
When you see depression as something ugly you cannot heal yourself.
Animals do not feel sorry for themselves. Where there is love, is security.
Horses that heal people, echoed within my heart!
I quickly disappeared down to the stable. Grooming the horse and I was in a meditative state.
I prepared to ride my first riding lesson.
Later in the day my nine-year-old son Max outburst, “Mom, what kind of spell did the horse give to you? You’re so happy! ”
I knew I was finally on the right track!
