I'm feeling abused, tortured, drained, hurt, and just lost.

Being a Hindu, I've been fed this truth for a large part of the last 6 years that every living entity or Jeevatma is betrothed to God, as in like Husband and Wife. Because God is the Ultimate Person and the living entity, being His/Her part, is His/Her spouse. This relationship is eternal, like how Jehovah is the Eternal Father in Heaven, and Jesus is our Eternal Friend, etc.

Suddenly however, I'm seeing signs that I alone am betrothed to God almighty, and the rest are like servants, parents, friends, and/or children of God. This is completely illogical, and beyond my understanding. Due to the Grace of my Guru (Spiritual Master), God speaks to me through the TV, Books, Music, Animals/Men/Women/Children around me, etc. etc. Suddenly, I'm being told that I'm the only one, and the most important one. I mean, it's great. It's like the biggest dream come true. I'm expecting some really great things in the future - like the stars and the moon - all for myself.

But then I look around at all the people and souls around me, and I wonder, is this really the truth? Has no one - out of the trillions of souls moving through this universe - ever attained God as Husband (Lord Krsna) and Wife (Goddess Bhuvaneshwari) in the past? Or have they, too, been fed with the same 'truth' as I'm experiencing? I can't talk to anyone about it because normal people in the world don't experience this kind of a thing. Just yesterday, I got into a scuffle over this when out with friends.

Please help. Because I know that God-realized saints are all around me, and this forum has a good battalion, too. Thanks.

Just watched the Jaycee Lee Gugard documentary and I am literally broken... what a tragic story but with an amazing outcome. Wow what an incredible woman. Such an amazing person, I suggest anyone reading watches the documentary - truly and inspiration and a glorious human being. May god bless her for the rest of her life. I am in tears.

I'm happy that the weekend is finally here.

Me too. It's times like these where I need to change everything up. Buy some new clothes, listen to new music, eat food I haven't tried before, watch movies I haven't seen before, visit areas I haven't been to before etc. That usually works.

I'm at a really low point in my life now.Battling depression since 2016 when I lost my best friend and it's been downhill ever since with 2018 being possibly the worst year of my life... I've tried to stay positive and focus on my happiness but there's always something around the corner to knock me down again and again.I'm almost fed up

I'm sorry to hear that. Depression is really awful. I already fought against it years ago and started to fight against it again since summer 2017. Unfortunately, even though i'm dealing with it as well, i can't give you an advice how to handle it as everyone is different in that case. Sometimes my 'motivation' is that there's always a next day and that one may be better than the last one. Try to concentrate on little things that are good in your life, as someone with depression often only sees the negative things. Try to go out, meet people you like and do things that are good for you. Just keep on, as it's definitely worth it.

Wow. This thread is all over everywhere.

Literally feeling full on account of this dope burrito I just ate.

In response to those discussing depression. There's no quick fixes in my own personal history but I have found that it ultimately disconnects me from people and pulls me into self-obsessed thoughts. To counteract this, I:

* meditate
* write a gratitude list every day
* exercise
* make the effort to socialise with people who affirm who I am, especially on the days I don't want to
* participate in clubs, work groups and meetup.com groups
* most importantly, I help people. It's literally the best thing I know to get myself out of my depressing self obsession

Also, FFS, treat yourself to a burrito every now and then. Damn they're good.

Oh yeah, a burrito would be a great idea, though it‘s hard to get one over here so... i have to rely on other things :)

I've still never been to Switzerland... tell me, what's the go-to "sooo-good-but-not-so-good-for-you" snack in your land?
