Inner Starvation: Nutrition For The Soul

When an animal is starved, it’s forced to lower its expectations of what it will eat. What would never seem appetizing to a well-fed stomach become luxuries when hungry.

It’s not unlike starving to understand Who You Are. What matters to you? What calls your name? What makes you sad, happy, angry? What are you running from, and what are you running toward?

Not knowing how to self-reflect can lead to a state of inner starvation.

Our hunger for awareness makes anything seem appetizing when we’re strangers to ourselves. One opportunity makes our mouths water, and another does just the same. We identify with one thing then turn around and identify with its opposite. We drool at anyone who’s a potential lover, and every warm body becomes a close friend.
