    When you're feeling down in the dumps, sad, or depressed, what do you engage yourself in to feel better?

    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."
    ~~Stephen Jay Gould, Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    I have two answers. The uplifting one is: go to the gym, listen to upbeat music, try and get outside, etc.

    The real answer is: feed the pain demon with more sad and more pain, until my suffering is absolutely UNBEARABLE, my heart hurts, my stomach hurts, my body hurts...and then when I finally reach rock bottom (whatever that may be for the issue at hand), then I force myself to go to the gym, listen to upbeat music, get outside, etc.

    I'd love to just skip all that pain and go to step 2, but it's just not in me.

    Smoke something.
    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

    I can't do everything, but I can do something.

    The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant compared to the power of the Force.

    Well....

    The quote is that misery shared is lessened...

    So I share it...

    Oh wait, you probably want the answer that does not involve adding souls to my pizza recipes.

    Err, it depends, read a book, play a computer game, watch youtube videos, drive somewhere away from people that I'm obligated to interact with, go out to dinner, any combination of the above and other as yet unnamed options. I don't really have a set answer to this.
    "It is not simply enough to know the light…a Jedi must feel the tension between the two sides of the Force…in himself and in the universe."
    ―Thon

    "When to the Force you truly give yourself, all you do expresses the truth of who you are,"

    Yoda

    Yoda told stories, and ate, and cried, and laughed: and the Padawans saw that life itself was a lightsaber in his hands; even in the face of treachery and death and hopes gone cold, he burned like a candle in the darkness. Like a star shining in the black eternity of space.

    Yoda: Dark Rendezvous

    "But those men who know anything at all about the Light also know that there is a fierceness to its power, like the bare sword of the law, or the white burning of the sun." Suddenly his voice sounded to Will very strong, and very Welsh. "At the very heart, that is. Other things, like humanity, and mercy, and charity, that most good men hold more precious than all else, they do not come first for the Light. Oh, sometimes they are there; often, indeed. But in the very long run the concern of you people is with the absolute good, ahead of all else..."

    John Rowlands, The Grey King by Susan Cooper

    "You come from the Lord Adam and the Lady Eve", said Aslan. "And that is both honour enough to erect the head of the poorest beggar, and shame enough to bow the shoulders of the greatest emperor on earth; be content."

    Aslan, Prince Caspian by CS Lewis

    I go look for dogs to pet. Spend time in nature. Write and draw. Practice cardistry. And listen to Marilyn Manson.
