The way I understand it, we are all part of a complex matrix of psycho/spiritual energy. This energy is transfered back and forth through a web of relationships both seen and unseen. I'm convinced that those of us who suffer from depression are acting as a magnet for the denser forms of energy, allowing it to "well up" in our person and manefesting as sorrow in our experience. Others may draw hatered and return rage. However this system works, I believe that on the physical level it is a closed system. The only exceptions to this might be the introduction of prophets and angels into that matrix for a finite period of time.

Temmie, you asked "How can those who've been blessed with such -- well -- blessings -- continue to be saddled with such woes?" Well I wonder if on some level, the depressions that we create in the matrix isn't beneficial to the whole. Perhaps by holding much of this negative energy we are freeing others from its grip, perhaps just enough to allow them to make some important progress or contribution to the whole. I believe that these types of relationships, who does what and why, are pre-determined. Not pre-determined in the sense that we relinquish our free will, but in the sense that we volunteer for the roles before hand. Yet in God's ultimate wisdom, we are given a gift of rememberance, so that we might not be totally lost in the darkness. For I cannot imagine a life more difficult then one lived in sorrow, except for one lived without hope. And despite the difficulties each of us might have, the one common denominator we share is that we still have hope. And perhaps that is our greatest blessing and our most important gift to the world.

As far as your question (a troubling one I might add) "And will pain and despair follow one into eternity?". I would have to say yes, and no. We know that after we die, each of us retains some part of our personality and experiences. These aspects of who we are must therefore include the pain and dispair that we experienced in the physical. Yet we are now part of an open system, free from the closed matrix of the physical. This would allow this energy to be channeled out and away, into infinity, rather than to well up in our beings. Therefore, I think the answer to your question might be "Yes, the pain and dispair follows us, but where we're going, that won't matter."

Best guess.

One Love,
