We are all starving.

We feed ourselves lies

But we’re starving for truth

 

We crave the loudness of life

But we’re starving for inner silence

 

We desire sex, passion, romance

But we’re starving to be understood

 

We long to be like everyone else

But we’re starving to be accepted for our differences

 

We cry out for justice

But we’re starving for peace

 

We thirst for simple answers

But we’re starving for complex wisdom

 

We are all starving.

We fill ourselves with what is easy

When what we really want

Often requires work

Vulnerability

Authenticity

Sacrifice

Courage

And because we are content with the shallow

We can never be truly full

We are all starving….

we are all starving….
