We are unconsciously aware that we are empty, that we are nothing.
Though we may have titles, jobs, position, power, money, and all the rest of it, underlying all that there is a state of emptiness, an unfulfilled longing, a vacuum which we translate as loneliness—that state in which the self, the “me,” has completely enclosed the mind.
Perhaps that is the very root of our fear.
And can we look at it in order to understand it?
For I think we must understand it if we would go beyond it.
