"The opposite of depression is not happiness, but vitality, and it was vitality that seemed to seep away from me in that moment."Andrew Solomon ...Or...J. Krishnamurti said:“So our first demand is whether it is possible to end conflict in all our relationships-at home, in the office, in every area of our life-to put an end to conflict. This does not mean that we retire in isolation, become a monk, or withdraw into some corner of our own imagination and fancy; it means living in this world to understand conflict. Because, as long as there is conflict of any kind, naturally our minds, hearts, brains, cannot function to their highest capacity.
They can only function fully when there is no friction, when there is clarity. And there is clarity only when mind that is the totality-which is the physical organism, the brain cells, and the total thing which is called the mind-is in a state of non-conflict, when it functions without any friction; only then is it possible to have peace.”
