    Many years ago I saw a documentary about Rastafarians living in small huts on their own in the Jamaican mountains. Growing their food and sacrament (ganga). Writing poetry and leading simple, ascetic and very spiritual lives. Wonderful.

    Back in the mid 90s I visited my relatives in Jamaica (my father was Jamaican) they live in the Parish of Clarendon in a tiny settlement called Darlow which was not too far from a Rasta Nyabinghi community in the parish of Manchester which Bob founded...I had the good fortune of visiting the community over the Christmas period (they celebrate it in January) you couldn't find a more laidback friendly community and the ital vital food was to die for :)

    Now back to ......

  • Re: anxiety and depresion

    Everything happens in the present moment, even though depression and anxiety are mind trips either back to the past or ahead to the future, both are illusions that happen in the here & now

    I think what @upekka is saying (but I could be wrong) is that the root of ones depression lies in a past event and ones habitual thinking patterns take one emotionally back there, and as for anxiety, one tries to paint a picture (more often than not... a disturbing one) of some possible future event ie the unknown, of which again, feelings and emotions accompany the thoughts...All this occurs in the 'here & now' but ones awareness is elsewhere, entangled in thoughts...

    "If you fear you shall suffer....You already suffer what you fear !"
