Correspondence with Sri Aurobindo
The Complete Set
I went to J's place and came back feeling depressed. May I have caught the depression from her or did it come like that without any apparent reason?
Both are possible.
I think I have read in “Conversations” that depression is contagious and one may get it just like the germs of a disease. Is it true and what might have been the cause in my case?
Yes. She must have dropped it upon you (not intentionally of course) and also perhaps your vital forces went to her leaving you for the moment empty.
Since my coming here, I don't think I have ever had a good meditation. It begins in earnestness and ends in sleep with dreams.
What kind of dreams?
