There is nothing wrong with you.
That is the profound truth that all spiritual teachers have been bringing to us for centuries. Yet most of us resist that possibility because we’re so programmed to think otherwise. We think we lack something, and we spend most of our lives looking for it. The strange thing is that we don’t even know that we’re searching for something, but sometimes we do connect with this feeling of lack or emptiness.
We don’t like it at all, so we disconnect from it. The TV goes on, the phone call is made to head out on the town, more energy gets put into work – anything at all to escape from it. But we can’t. It’s like a gnawing in the pit of our stomachs – something is missing. We begin to build our personalities around this feeling of lack - because we think we need to defend or hold onto what little we have. We defend our beliefs, our opinions, our money, our relationships – everything in our lives is invested with this belief in lack. We fear that there's not enough - and worse, we fear that WE ARE NOT ENOUGH.
