Everyone begins existence complete, it’s just that not many realize it so this produces a need to reach for it. Most people have a sense of lack in their lives so the reaching seems natural, but it’s not.
Constantly reaching for things on the outside keeps one in the grip of the need to reach because it’s as though it creates a hollow shell. The reason why reaching is done is to try and fill the hollowness, but the reaching for things on the outsides keeps the reaching in place, thus the hollowness remains; the dog chasing its tail syndrome. Only by looking inward does the hollowness begin to be filled, but what really happens is it simply collapses because the outside hold weakens. Years of conditioning makes the hollow shell almost impossible to crack and it’s unfortunate because many never get beyond the hollowness. I did say almost impossible because the slightest turning inward is all that’s needed. Once looking outside ceases because the lies are exposed, looking inward becomes the technique of choice and it has a snow ball rolling down a hill effect; it just naturally picks up momentum.
Outside reaching is used as a protection technique so one doesn’t have to go inward. The greatest lie that we tell ourselves and constantly reinforce it is, we need something to be complete, but there’s nothing further from the truth. Everyone begins existence complete, it’s just that not many really know this, hence the need to reach for it. Most people have a sense of lack in their lives so the reaching seems natural, but it’s not. We’re not meant to be hollow and it’s only so because of the conditioning we develop. Once the slightest crack occurs, everything changes because the inward view reveals truth and although we live a lie for most of our lives, when truth is revealed the hollowness implodes as the truth sets you free.
