Dire au revoir

I overheard a Father and daughter in their last moments together at the airport. They had announced the departure.

Standing near the security gate, they hugged and the Father said, ‘I love you, and I wish you enough.’

The daughter replied, ‘Dad, our life together has been more than enough.. Your love is all I ever needed. I wish you enough, too, Dad.’
Description:
They kissed and the daughter left. The Father walked over to the window where I was seated. Standing there I could see he wanted and needed to cry. I tried not to intrude on his privacy, but he welcomed me in by asking, ‘Did you ever say good-bye to someone knowing it would be forever?’

‘Yes, I have,’ I replied. ‘Forgive me for asking, but why is this a forever good-bye?’.

‘I am old, and she lives so far away. I have challenges ahead and the reality is – the next trip back will be for my funeral,’ he said.

‘When you were saying good-bye, I heard you say, ‘I wish you enough.’ May I ask what that means?’

He began to smile. ‘That’s a wish that has been handed down from other generations. My parents used to say it to everyone…’ He paused a moment and looked up as if trying to remember it in detail, and he smiled even more.. ‘When we said, ‘I wish you enough,’ we were wanting the other person to have a life filled with just enough good things to sustain them..’ Then turning toward me, he shared the following as if he were reciting it from memory.I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright no matter how gray the day
I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun even more.
I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive and everlasting.

I wish you enough pain so that even the smallest of joys in life may appear bigger.

I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.
I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.

I wish you enough hellos to get you through the final good-bye..
Description:
He then began to cry and walked away.

They say it takes a minute to find a special person, an hour to appreciate them, a day to love them; but then an entire life to forget them.

EMOTIONS

When someone is doing something or is about to do something, in a way we don’t want it to be done and when we are not able to accept it, we become angry.
However, when someone is doing something or is about to do something, in a way we don’t want it to be done  and we are able to accept it We remain tolerant.
When someone has something which we don’t have, or someone is able to produce the results which we are not able to produce and we are not able to accept it we become jealous.
When someone has something which we don’t have or someone is able to produce the results which we are not able to produce and we are able to accept it we get inspired.
When Someone is present in our thoughts, but if not physically present and we are not able to accept it
We say ‘I am missing you’.
When someone is present in our thoughts, but not physically present and we are able to accept it
We say ‘I am thinking of you’.
Then the emotional equation is quite simple.
Something + Acceptance = Positive Emotion
Something + Non Acceptance = Negative Emotion
So, it is not ‘Something’ or ‘someone’ that is making us feel positive or negative, but it is our ‘acceptance’ or ‘non acceptance’ of something or someone, which is making us feel
It isn’t the world but the quality of our response to the world (acceptance or non acceptance) that determines the quality of our emotions.
Next time we feel disturbed with a negative emotion, instead of asking who or what is disturbing us, we will examine who or what we are resisting (not accepting) that is causing this disturbance in us.
We will replace resistance (non acceptance) with acceptance, and the negative emotion will turn into a positive one.
Emotional management begins when we stop blaming that ‘something’ or ‘someone’ and start
taking the responsibility to respond to life with ‘acceptance’.

Computer therapy helps young out of depression

April 25, 2012 35 comments

 

A computer game designed to lift teenagers out of depression is as effective as one-on-one counselling, New Zealand doctors reported on Thursday in the British Medical Journal (BMJ). Researchers at the University of Auckland tested an interactive 3-D fantasy game called SPARX on 94 youngsters diagnosed with depression whose average age was 15 and a half years.

SPARX invites a user to take on a series of seven challenges over four to seven weeks in which an avatar has to learn to deal with anger and hurt feelings and swap negative thoughts for helpful ones.

Used for three months, SPARX was at least as effective as face-to-face conventional counselling, according to several depression rating scales.

In addition, 44 per cent of the SPARX group who carried out at least four of the seven challenges recovered completely.

In the conventional treatment group, only 26 per cent recovered fully.

“Use of the programme resulted in a clinically significant reduction in depression, anxiety and hopelessness, and an improvement in quality of life,” according to the study led by Sally Merry, an associate professor at the Department of Psychological Medicine.

The adolescents also gave a high rating to SPARX, saying they liked being able to use it at home and to learn at their own pace.Eighty per cent said they would recommend the computer therapy to others, although the treatment-as-usual group had similarly high approval ratings.
