Ramtha’s comments on depression are interesting and insightful.  In our world we tend to define “normal” very narrowly and panic when some behaviour or condition deviates from the collective “normal”.  Life is a bit like the breath … in breaths, out breaths, pauses.  Depression (other than due to structural or chemical imbalances) is like hitting the pause button.  It’s a chance to digest and process reality, to regroup.  It’s a pretty natural state for introverts since they’re  routinely processing stuff internally.  Our society and media is more focused on extroverts so these pauses seem to be abnormal and cause for concern.

“What I want to say to you that is so vitally important is when you do look at yourself honorably, you do yourself a great service.  If you lose your joy and you become sad for a while – understanding this isn’t a medical condition – it is moving back and endeavoring to have more knowledge come up for self, allowing the brain to change without the hysteria of emotion.  That is why we seek the safe haven in the midbrain.  That is what depression is.”
(Ramtha:  Who Are We Really?)
