                                                  A DEEP THIRST

                                                     THICH NHAT HANH

                                                 Sometimes we feel empty; we feel a vacuum
                                                 a great lack of something. We don't know the 
                                                 cause; it's very vague, but that feeling of being
                                                 empty inside is very strong.  We expect and hope
                                                 for something much better so we'll feel less alone,
                                                 less empty. The desire to understand ourselves and
                                                 to understand life is a deep thirst. There's also the 
                                                 deep thirst to be loved and to love. We are ready to 
                                                 love and be loved. It's very natural. But because we 
                                                 feel empty, we try to find an object of our love. 
                                                 Sometimes we haven't had the time to understand
                                                 ourselves, yet we've already found the object of our
                                                 love. When we realize that all our hopes and 
                                                 expectations of course can't be fulfilled by that person,
                                                 we continue to feel empty. You want to find something,
                                                 but you don't know what to search for. In everyone
                                                 there's a continuous desire and expectation; deep
                                                 inside, you still expect something better to happen.

                                                  That is why you check your email many times a day!
