We search for people or things to fill the hole inside ourselves. We seek status, prestigious jobs, expensive fashions, impressive cars, etc. We try to fill the hole with alcohol, drugs, sex, exercise, work.
The hole cannot be filled because there is no hole. We attempt to attain something which cannot be attained. No matter how successful, popular, powerful or beautiful we are, we do not find fulfillment.
Love is the answer. Not the yearning for someone or some thing. But the realization that love is what we are. By dropping our identity and our notions of who we think we are or want to be, we find ourselves. We can discover our Selves by being present, without thought.
Let's be aware of our true nature.
