People who are spiritually minded tend to suffer from anxiety & depression more. But this is because their eyes are open to a world that is in need of repair. They literally have an increased ability to feel the emotions of people around them.
The is so true. I have meditated for many years and have experienced this personally. It is very powerful, it's like I have an internal switch that I can control when something angers me or I feel uncomfortable. I don't have to be held hostage by feelings or others actions. It's by new norm and a process I work with daily to improve. It's very powerful, it makes me feel more in control of my life and I also feel more connected to the rest of life. ~ AROIS
Heightened AWARENESS of my true choices will NOT change my current life situation. It simply changes my choices: PEACE or conflict? The situation may remain unchanged as lessons for others to learn. I can move on!
