I had a revelation this week about the nature of us and the way we perceive the world. The recent days had been stormy, the days grey and gloomy, with rainclouds and hail. But I noticed through the clouds a small patch of blue sky. I realised that above these storm clouds the sun must always shine brightly. Astronauts in space always see the Earth as a beautiful blue lit by a brilliant yellow sun. If we could rise above the Earth and clouds, we could cast away the grey gloom, and see the Earth as always azure blue with brilliant sunshine. The oppressive clouds must pass by eventually. The grey and the rain and the gloom are transient. The blue and the sunlight are constant. Don't know if these thoughts are a sign of the start of recovery, or simply my sensitive nature coming out. I have reading some recent threads, and they all seem to reflect that us depressed people seem more spiritual than most, and see the world differently than others! This is clearly both a blessing and a curse.
