Depression-Gateway to Enlightenment

Many spiritual searchers have only seen their true nature after a bout of serious depression.
Eckhart Tolle and Jeff Foster are two teachers that spring to mind. I myself had a short but strong bout just before I awakened, it seems the depression is in the ego and can help subdue the ego in order for your true nature to shine through.
It seems these days if you feel depressed you run to the doctors for some anti-depressants to paint over your depression.
Maybe the depression spreading across the world is part of the awakening process, stop taking the pills and engage in the moment because after awakening I guarantee you will no longer need any pills, if you start feeling depression coming on again you are not conscious and that is enough to bring you back to being conscious.
