Engaging in Focusing and Bearing Witness

Can keep depression away…

191205 Gandolf focused on the hanging crystal while bearing witness to all that is.

Why? Because with mind training the negative self-talk, stagnant qi and isolative behavior of depression is put in the back parking lot of your mind to rest.

Make this your own personal experiment:
Let your eyes focus on an inanimate object. Notice. Keep focusing. Notice what arises in you? Keep focusing. Bear witness on your world just like Gandolf the Cat is doing. What do you notice about your thoughts? Keep focusing in tandem with bearing witness. What do you notice now?
