There are those who are not really failures in life, but anyway carry failure deep in their hearts; and there are those who are failures, but anyway feel successful down deep inside them. Of course, most successful people feel that they are indeed, well, successful.
We were born in a success oriented world; everything we were taught is about how to be successful. We were taught since our first growing years how to avoid failure. How then, can we start our humble search for truth, when we feel we do not even need it? It never even cross our minds; either we are trying hard to be successful or just too busy with our successes.
I have this inner failure, this inner void;
and I feel trapped in its vast and endless nothingness.
But to get out, I have to admit that I am in here in this great trap.
And to get out, I have to recognize how empty I am inside.
Only then, can I really start with the humble search for inner truth.
