So often we go through life feeling like we just don’t really fit in or believing that there is something fundamentally wrong with us.

Perhaps we have a sense of something beyond this ‘mundane’ world, but we can not find a way to live and experience that. We grasp for help in any way that we can, in order to survive and live with the pain of feeling separate and alone.

Perhaps we try to find what we are looking for in spiritual practices, or perhaps we try to find it in our relationships or work.

But whatever we may find, only gives us temporary satisfaction or relief, and then again the same sense of pain and separation comes back and endlessly drives us to search for something more. We long for rest. We long for real peace, wholeness, freedom and love.
