The inspiration for this article came into my inner space with this thought – how important it is for anyone to be his or her own energy source! To me, it is no longer a luxury, it is a necessity for basic survival in this increasing complex world where we are constantly inundated with choices, distractions and unconscious temptations. Unfortunately, we were neither trained by the school system nor society to find our own energy source. Quite often, it is only when we finally hit the wall of reality and suffer from depression then we start seeking the right answers to the real problem. Our future generation can avoid this unnecessary suffering if they are given the right understanding at a young age.
According to a new research by World Mental Health (WHM) published in Biomed after interviewing over 89,000 people in 18 countries across the world in July 2011, it is found that depression affects over 121 million people worldwide. At its most severe, depression can lead to suicide and is responsible for at least 850,000 deaths every year. Depression is a significant public health concern across all regions of the world and is strongly linked to social conditions.
