Something is missing.
Does anyone look at the people around them and say ďthereís something missingĒ. I see everyone going about their days, seemingly content with their lives, and yet I canít help but feel like their lives, mine included, are incomplete in some way. The weird thing is that I canít put my finger on exactly what that missing element is exactly; I just know itís there. Iíve often thought about this, but have never had the words to accurately express it.
My family for example, works hard and enjoys their careers, but it seems like their lives are lacking in depth Ė as though they are living from a very superficial standpoint. Although I recognize this, if I were to discuss it with them, Iím sure they would tell me that their lives are imperfect but very complete otherwise.
Am I the only one here who desires more? I have a longing to discover something, someone or some concept that will give my life meaning and allow me to feel less like Iím just floating aimlessly with no purpose or direction.
Even though this probably sounds very negative or pessimistic, the idea actually excites me beyond measure. Being able to recognize that thereís more out there, even if I canít quite describe what that means, gives me the capacity to one day achieve a greater life for myself. If I never stumbled upon this realization, Iíd never be able to obtain that missing element and Iíd always feel as though something isnít right.
Do any of you experience the same feelings?
Can you identify that missing element?

When I have the "is something missing" feeling, then I know I am out of alignment. Since I feel deep meaning in my life--I just ride it out because I know it is temporary. If you feel like this most of the time--i.e. you feel lost, a good place to start would be to do some journaling. Ask yourself questions about what you feel is important in your life and what makes you feel really excited. When your vibration is high and you feel excited about something, it is easier to recognize deep meaning and value.

It's not them; it's you. Whatever is missing, generate it! And I suspect there may be something to let go of, too, that would make a difference. In fact, you may have to let go of something before you can see what there is to generate.

I certainly understand you on this one KnK. You are definately not the only one out there that thinks that their life needs some meaning to it. I feel that way often and still am not sure how to resolve it.
Keep your head up and hopefully you will find that meaning you are looking for.

Yes, practically every single person is not being an authentic spiritual person, living a truly spiritual life. However, most won't notice or realize it. So really all you can do is create this for yourself, which is really who you truly are anyhow. Sometimes just being an example can help influence others, though likely they'll continue on the same path. It's not necessarily wrong if they don't know it and are relatively happy, among other things. Once you are doing what is needed to live a great life, everything else will fall into place regardless of what others are doing.
