The link above is an interesting article for those who see me who have taken meditation to heart as a way of coping with depression or anxiety. The “not this, not that” meditation technique is very powerful and not for the faint of heart. However, it is one of the best ways I know to STRETCH the way you define yourself, so that you can see yourself as MORE than the person who “is” anxious or depressed.
The only warning I would give with this style of meditation is that when you let go of the old ways of viewing yourself, it is much like being a beginning trapeze artist, floating in the air while waiting to make the next connection. The key to getting over the anxiety that is related to this is to realize that you can choose what you do want to be. You DO have that power.
Irregardless, after doing this meditation, you will find that you have a very different way of looking at who you are as a person.
