It is not enough
Nothing is enough anymore. It’s not enough to be motivated or balanced. It’s not enough to survive. It’s not enough to be good. Pleasure is not enough. It’s not enough to accept yourself. Nothing is enough.
The psychologies don’t know why. The scholars don’t know why. The great religions don’t have the answer. Metaphysics, physics don’t have the answer. They might come close and cast shadows that resemble the answer, but they are not the answer.
In these times, maybe more so than ever, when things can’t fully be trusted, from within us or from without, there is only one skeletal answer, one skeletal realization, one place to be.
The place is where there is a presence, an above, a maker.
Somehow, this has to be seen. If this is not so, there is nothing. If it is so, there is something.
There could be more following, there could be hope from this, there could be promises that emerge, but this has to be fully grasped and accepted first in its simplicity.
Your own internal troubles, the worldly external chaos; the shaking and the reeling, are prompting you to see this, and to see this in its pure form. This is not about religion or spirituality. Forget everything you know on the subject.
There simply is a maker and to realize this, is the first step in the direction you must take, with or without reward.
