The Search For Meaning

🔥The Hunger For Meaning to Life

“The Bushmen in the Kalahari Desert talk about the two “hungers”.

There is the Great Hunger and there is the Little Hunger.

The Little Hunger wants food for the belly; but the Great Hunger, the greatest hunger of all, is the hunger for meaning…

There is ultimately only one thing that makes human beings deeply and profoundly bitter, and that is to have thrust upon them a life without meaning.

There is nothing wrong in searching for happiness.

But of far more comfort to the soul is something greater than happiness or unhappiness, and that is meaning.

Because meaning transfigures all. Once what you are doing has for you meaning, it is irrelevant whether you’re happy or unhappy. You are content – you are not alone in your Spirit – you belong.”

-Laurens van der Post

Through the experience of the spiritual program of action…

I have discovered a profound meaning to life that satisfies my hunger to feel complete…

I can now feast upon the spiritual abundance laid out on the table of 12th step service to mankind…

I no longer have to walk this earth with a fearful sense of lack and scarcity…

I have been reborn in completion.
