Filling the Lack at Our Core

Reading for the upcoming yoga training…

The interesting thing about the external forms of gratification that we use to fill this lack at our core is that when they disappear or decay (like the loss of a lover, job, money, or status), they return us to the basic truth that nothing outside of ourselves can ultimately create a solid ground out of which we can find peace.
