An Empty Shell

Everyone begins existence complete, it’s just that not many realize it hence the need to reach for it. Most people have the sense of a void in their lives so the reaching seems natural, but it’s not…

Constantly having a need to reach for things keeps you in the grip of reaching because it’s as though it creates an empty shell. The reason why reaching is done is to try and fill the shell, but the reaching for things out there keeps the shell empty; it’s the dog chasing its tail masquerade. Only by looking inward does the shell begin to be filled, but what really happens is it simply collapses because the reaching hold weakens. Years of conditioning makes the empty shell almost impossible to fill and it’s unfortunate because many never get beyond this. I did say almost impossible because the slightest turning inward is all that’s needed. Once reaching outside ceases as the empty shell lies are exposed, looking inward becomes the way and it has a ball rolling down a hill effect; it just naturally picks up momentum.

Outside reaching is used for protection so one doesn’t have to look at themselves. The greatest lie that we tell ourselves and constantly reinforce it is we need things from the outside to be complete, but there’s nothing further from the truth. Everyone begins existence complete, it’s just that not many realize this, hence the need to reach for it. Most people have the sense of a void in their lives so the reaching seems natural, but it’s not. We’re not meant to be an empty shell and it’s only so because of the conditioning we develop.
