And why the void was never real.

The void was never real. The void is simply the absence of you. Who you are.

Do you feel there is something missing in your life right now?

There is.

You are missing you.

Who you are.

And you are not a thought.

You simply learned to think about you.

Which is how you learned to think there is a void in your life.

Because when you are thinking about you, you are no longer here.

Because you are in a thought.

A thought about you.

Who you think you should be.

Rather than who you are.

Where you think you need to be.

Rather than where you are.

And you are here.

You have always been here.

Waiting patiently for you to return here too.

Because when you are here, you are here.

No thought required.

Because there is no thought when it comes to you.

Because you already are.

You already are you.

Which is why you are not a thought.

Your mind simply got conditioned to think about you.

Because you never thought to think about what you think about.

You never thought to think about why you need to think about you.

Think thoughts that don’t even make sense.

Even to you.

And why you think you still need to think this way too.

Take a moment to think about what you think about when it comes to you.

Chances are they are thoughts that make you think you are need to be more than who you are.

Chances are they are thoughts that make you think you can no longer be you.

Because chances are they are thoughts that make you keep thinking of who you think you should be.

Rather than be who you already are.

And you are here.

Right here.

Exactly where you need to be.

Because when you are here, you feel it too.

Your breath.

Your presence.

The Presence of You.

Who you are.

And you are not a thought.

The void is simply a thought.

A thought you learned to think about you.

Thoughts that keep you from you.

Who you are.

Thoughts that keep you from seeing it.

Seeing it for you too.

How you are enough.

How you have always been enough.

Simply being you.

Thoughts that keep you from hearing it.

Hearing your own voice.

The voice inside of you.

That simply knows who you are.

And what you want to do too.

Thoughts that keep you from feeling it.

Your breath.

Your presence.

You.

Which is why no amount of food, alcohol, exercise, work, sex or drugs could fill the void.

Because the void is simply the absence of you.

And there can be no absence in the Presence.

There can be no absence in the Presence of You.

Because when you are present, you are here.

So you can be filled.

Filled with this Understanding.

The Understanding of You.

Because you understand who you are.

And where you are too.

So the next time the thought arrives that makes you think there is a void, you can also choose to be filled with the Understanding too.

The Understanding of how you are not a thought.

The Understanding of how you are still learning too.

The Understanding of how you are here.

You have always been here.

Waiting patiently for you to return here too.

To return to you.

So you can be filled with the Peace and the Joy of the Understanding too.
