What do we really need for our personal healing and transformation? More psychological technique? More psychiatric medication? Or love and compassion through a genuine healing presence? Could love deficits with a myriad of symptoms and disorder be the deepest “cry of the soul?”
Psychiatric drugs prevent healing. This seemingly audacious and “politically incorrect” assertion is supported by considerable evidence. In fact, the same drugs that purport to bring healing often cause long term health issues. If your desire is true, lasting healing, don’t count on psychiatric drugs.
Tempted to “delete” weird dreams that seem to have no possible interpretation? Don’t discard such dreams so quickly. They may well be God speaking to you, in a way you probably have not considered.
Years ago, I was detained at the Damascus International Airport for a whole night. It was just about the worst night of my life – almost like being in prison and in a third world country. I later realized that God had warned me in a dream long before. Has God spoken to you in a dream? Have you maybe experienced the consequences of not reflecting on your dreams?
If depression “runs in families”, it is at least partly genetic, as many claim. But greed, atheism, criminality and more can “run in families” as well, which raises many ethical issues and problems. Some scientists even claim there is a gene for spirituality. With eugenics as the origin of the “runs in the family” concept, reductionism and the now known complexity of genetic effects, the genetics of mental illness is seriously flawed.
