Life has an excellent way of providing us with every experience necessary to evolve our consciousness and encourage our greatest potential. Whether it’s blessing us with it’s many splendors and abundant beauty, or throwing us curve balls and speed bumps, all of it is a journey. There is always a lesson to be learned, hidden in plain sight within the fabric of it’s firsthand experience.
Yet these lessons aren’t always evident at first. Often times they take awhile to discover once given the opportunity to reflect upon our choices, and realize the value of their outcome when looked at in hindsight.
Getting angry (in moderation) can be therapeutic and act as a healthy way of releasing pent up feelings and emotion, instead of keeping them silently chained up inside.

Some even venture to say that depression is embedded in our DNA, beginning as far back as the 1900’s into the 1920’s when the Great Depression played it’s dark role in society. This caused individual people during that time, who were waking up to their personal sovereignty and self-power, to recoil into a state of depression, anxiety, and worry. They lost their sense of safety and security, putting a halt to their discoveries of personal empowerment. When the elite, wealthy, and powerful hierarchy felt their position threatened, the Great Depression was unleashed unto the public to ensure the masses maintained their physical and mental slavery to the ‘system’. Essentially, keeping them asleep.
