The Vine of the Soul

Understanding the Spiritual Causes of Depression

Can you believe it, 50% of Americans and Europens are on some kind of prescription drug and more than half receive at least two prescriptions? High on the list of drugs prescribed are antidepressants. I find that shocking. Not least, it speaks about the dysfunctional nature of society in terminal decline. The system is not working! I imagine practically everyone suffers from some kind of unhappiness or depression from time to time. Why does that happen? How might we deal with it in an effective, spiritual way, without prescribing medication?…

The not-so-merry-go-round of society

I believe there are many reasons why people suffer bouts of depression, and to me, I sense it’s mainly – if not always – due to a dysfunctional relationship with the Higher Self or Spiritual Self . I observe in the work I do with people, if we can get that inner relationship aligned and ticking well, then depression and other dysfunctional experiences dissolve away.

I put it to you, that the root cause of all Depression,
is a dysfunctional relationship with the Higher Self

Society has conditioned people to look for some kind of end goal in the outer world, and created a system of enslaved consumeristic addicts. Rather than attaining sense of completeness within, people have been made to believe some achievement, attainment, or physical manifestation must be the subject of their longing. Most people have been sold a lie, and when the lie doesn’t fulfill, something must be prescribed to fill the sense of loss. It’s a not-so-merry-go-round fueled by big corporations to make profit. And there’s no bigger cash cow than the ‘health’ industry.

So this is probably the number 1 reason people get depressed – they’ve been sold a lie which can never fulfill the sense of inner completeness. Worse still, prescribed drugs tend to lock people into the disconnection – they manage the situation rather than solve it.


It’s on this journey, that at some point, the soul realizes something crucial: that the soul in itself, is not an identity, but a stream of consciousness – a stream of experience. It means there’s only one self in the universe – the One; your Higher Self and you are that.
