Years of depression in high school and university eventually led me to resign from a promising medical career and begin a perilous internal journey. I was in my early twenties at the time.
I was looking to find a sense of all-knowing, achieving a state of much greater insight and awareness. After months of self imposed isolation, and internal struggle, I eventually found what I was searching for.
It wasn't at all what I expected.
Along the way I learnt many useful mental skills, such as how to understand and conquer fear, and make sense of our emotional pains and motivations.
I no longer suffer depression.
I would like to share some of what I have learnt so others may gain from the experience, and not have to go to the extremes I felt compelled to try.
I see great hope in the world. It is waiting to realised inside each of us.
