Hi, i want to discuss a problem that could be important for a lot of people, specially in our times: should a person take the pilds that his psychiatrist has given to him to treat his depression? I thing that maybe the answer is not so simple, considering a certain number of points of view. For example, Gurdjieff teachs in his first book that nothing is more harmful for humans than modern medicine. He also teachs that the only ways to spiritually grow up are conscient work and voluntary suffering. So, isn't not taking the pilds a choice for voluntary suffering? On the other hand, the C's said once that the dark forces attacked people able to lurn the truth by creating chemical imbalances. But depression is a chemical imbalance and so could be an effect of an attack. So, if we want to protect ourselves against this sort of attack, should'nt we combat a chemical agression with a chemical defense and then should'nt the patient take the pilds?
