"Many people carry a void within their souls - be it spiritual, emotional or educational. Far from being a weakness, I believe this void is a strength! For it is this sense of lacking or need that drives and motivates a human being to search for God, love or enlightenment. Sometimes I think that contentment is tantamount to complacency. If one is content, would we ever strive to evolve and better ourselves?"
