Depression and spiritual awakening

Depression and spiritual awakening -- two sides of one door
Lisa Miller

"When you hear the knock, consider the invitation."

Sometimes depression can be a door to spiritual awakening and change. If we choose to listen, we can hear what the universe is trying to tell us.

Is and Was

Each moment is unique, now "is." And, "is" is the only reality. Yet, each "is" will become was as soon as you utter "is" the reality of it is "was."

We need to pass Leelah's Law

According to a post from the President:
On Sunday, December 27, 2014, Leelah Alcorn a 17 year old transgender youth wrote a suicide note, posted it on Tumblr and then walked in front of a semi-truck tragically ending her life. Leelah explained how her parents had forced her to attend conversion therapy, pulled her out of school and isolated her in an attempt to change her gender identity. 'Conversion therapies' have been documented to cause great harms and in this case, Leelah's death. Therapists that engage in the attempt to brainwash or reverse any child's gender identity or sexual orientation are seriously unethical and legislation is needed to end such practices that are resulting in LGBTQ+ deaths. We respectfully seek your help to ban the practice known as 'conversion therapy' and name the bill in honor of Leelah Alcorn.
One of my best friends in High School is a trans woman. Last year she and I spoke about her transition process and her life since she transitioned. She told me of a job she lost after her boss, rejecting her decision to transition told her, "God does not make mistakes." I said to her, no, God did NOT make a mistake, God made you transgender! Who is to say that's a mistake?

Conversion therapy does not work. We are who we are. We need to pass a law against misguided parents forcing it on their LGBTQ kids. We should do this in honor of Leelah Alcorn.
