Life Hack for Overcoming Depression: Feel things deeply

best-books-for-mystics-13

“I have always been regretting that I was not as wise as the day I was born.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

I love this quote. In it, what is most notable is the word “wise.” Emerson doesn’t say “as happy” or “as carefree” or “as intuitive.” He says “as wise.”

Why? What does a newborn baby have to teach us?

Babies feel. That’s what they do.

Adult humans think.

I am a fan of thinking, and I don’t necessarily agree with all of the possible implications of Emerson’s words here.

But sometimes, it is important to just feel, deeply, rather than thinking so much. To appreciate things just as they are. To be “present,” as some like to say. To be living in the world rather than in the future.

And it is much harder than it sounds.

If you can do it, you may just be a saint.
