Chief Joseph and John Cali
from the December 2007 Star Beacon
by Chief Joseph and John Cali
I recently read a short article by Andrew Weil, M.D. on
depression. Dr. Weil said “Depression is rampant. The World Health
Organization estimates that major depressive disorders will become
the second largest cause of disability worldwide by 2020, exceeded
only by heart disease.”
There are more than a few of my family and friends who
experience at least occasional depression, and some are almost
constantly depressed. Although I never get depressed now, I often
did when I was much younger. So I understand, with the greatest
compassion and love, how debilitating and scary it can be.
Here’s Chief Joseph.
live in a world today which can be “debilitating and scary,” to
use John’s words. We know the causes of depression could be — have
already been — debated endlessly. Some of your medical people
attribute it to what they call “chemical imbalance.” More about
that in a few moments.
Friends, your higher selves — as we’ve said many times
over the years — exist eternally in a state of bliss, ecstasy, and
joy. You — in your human bodies and lifetimes — are simply
physical extensions of that non-physical part of your total,
You often perceive a separation, even an impossibly huge
chasm, between you, the human and you, the spirit.
But that gulf, that chasm, is not real. It’s an illusion
— something that seems real (to your human mind), but is not. The
illusion will pass, as all illusions must.
In your perception of your human selves as separate and
distant from God or Goddess (that is, your higher selves), you
create the perfect scenario and conditions for what you call
We would ask you shift your perspective slightly here.
What is depression? In physical terms, one definition would be a
vacuum. For example, a hole in the ground. The hole is a
“depression.” So too, when you are feeling depressed, there is a
hole in your human being-ness.
But just as a hole in the ground can be easily filled
and made “whole,” so too can that hole in your human being-ness be
You all have the power to consciously tune into your higher
selves. You can do this in any way that feels good and right for
you. Meditation is certainly one powerful way to do it.
By whatever way you do it, when you are tuned into your
higher selves, tuned into God, you will find your depression being
filled and made whole.
Depression — the “hole-ness” — is not who you are.
So the “chemical imbalance” we spoke of earlier is only your
body’s reaction to your disconnection from (or, more accurately,
your misalignment with) who you truly are.
It’s a “chicken-and-egg” thing. The depression is not
the result of the chemical imbalance. Certainly the chemical
imbalance almost always exists when there is depression. But the
chemical imbalance is the inevitable consequence of your
disconnection. Your disconnection is the cause of your depression.
While we have the greatest compassion, as does John, for
those of you experiencing depression, we also want to remind you
of this “fact of life” — you, every one of you — are all-wise and
all-powerful. That’s how we see you. That’s how your higher selves
see you. That’s how God sees you.
When you see yourselves through our eyes you will move
out of your depression. It will be impossible for you to be
depressed, no matter what is going on in the world around you. And
that includes a medical diagnosis of chemical imbalance.
All is well, friends. We know that. Your higher selves
know that. God knows that.
