Joy and Depression – Adar Workshop
Is there anything more enthralling than getting to know yourself? Anything more intriguing than understanding what makes you tick? (We must, of course, qualify this considering that some people would prefer to know less about themselves; some are even terrified by the prospect of exploring the self. But that’s another discussion. On the other hand, there may be people who think they know all they need to know about themselves. That too is the subject of another conversation). We can safely say that most people would like to know more about their own makeup, and what defines their personalities and drives their reactions and decisions.
There is much talk lately about mapping the human genome. How about the spiritual genome? Imagine being able to get an x-ray of your psyche, a CAT scan of your soul. What do you think it would look like? How would it help us diagnose problems and suggest solutions? Beyond our wiring, can we also get a picture of the impact our environment and conditioning has on our personalities? Why are some of us more resilient than others? Why do some people have a joyful disposition and others a despondent one (beyond any clinical or chemical reasons)? Is this innate or acquired? Can we do anything about it? Even if we are wired a certain way, can we rewire ourselves?
