The individuals who
give specific people, who are concerned deeply with them every
moment of their lives, fall into emptiness when they loose
these people for some reason and they get wrapped in a
completely different mood.
loose the joy they get from life and they feel like a dead
person. The interesting point is that as soon as they have
this loss of identity they start to be very nervous and they
become extremely touchy. They sit and wander what they are
going to do. All the negative kinds of behaviour that are
not proper for a human being such as having problems in
communicating with others, lethargy and laziness, feelings of
pessimism seem to be their way of life style.
In my opinion
falling into emptiness is true for those who have grasped the
flow of life firmly or for the ones who live with the
principal ‘’I come before everything else’’.
The reason is that
when the thing which he wanted to have very much is taken away
from him or if there is a separation for some reason, then
whether one wants it or not the emptiness finds the individual.
As he was welcoming
a very colourful life with lots of excitements, he never
thought of the opposite, he could not think that anytime
anything contrary could happen. Such an individual does not
know anything about the returns from the life or the working/
functioning system of the universe, therefore it is not easy
for him to overcome these difficulties.
We must admit that
the ones in such a state of mind do not have a specific
thought idea nor an ideal ***.
There are lots of
people around us who are experiencing these conditions for
which they were not prepared at all. Most probably, you do not
have to go around searching for a long time in order to meet
Such kind of people
reflect their problems immediately to those close to them . When
the subject of their addiction is taken away from them, then
they start to show symptoms of physical and psychological
disorder. As soon as such a person enters through the door,
s/he fixes his eyes to the ceiling and starts telling about
what s/he has said and done with a low tone of voice.
meaningless visit you understand that s/he is certainly in
emptiness and has approached you in order to have some potential
power for himself.
As a matter of fact, apart from the class of saints that are
accepted as extrordinary individuals and the individuals with
belief/faith in their hearts there isn’t almost any person who
does not fall into the emptiness. It can be seen that those
individuals who have very little faith in their hearts as
little as the size of a grain of wheat are prevented from
falling into the emptiness because of the positive power that
they have gained from their works all through their lives.
However, on the
other hand the statistics show that at the moments of emptiness
the esteemed members of the society are thinking of committing
suicide. Among them are the intellectuals, the well educated
ones, the ones who can get everything that they want, the big
business men who are doomed to live the same end due to being
bankrupt as well as the ones who have fallen into the emptiness
because of simple family disputes.
lack of energy finds and gets hold of even the ones who
identify themselves as being untouchable.*****
My dear friends,
it would be much more correct to consider this matter not only
in personal terms, but within the dimension of the society.
For this reason, I am thinking that it is necessary to approach
these individuals with a positive attitude, without criticising
and accusing them by what they have done and without making
them feel ashamed with what they have done.
I am sure that the
supporting hands that wil be lended to these people will save
them from these pessimistic moods and will prevent them from
going into depression.
