Filling the God-Shaped Emptiness

Alan Watts
“The difficulty with the material world is that it collapses when you lean on it and turns to a fine powder when you clutch it. Material pleasure, even of the most refined order, is never enough, if “enough” is what you are seeking. If there is that strange, deep longing in the heart for something that is “the answer” – the gorgeous, golden glory you have always wanted but have never been able to find or define, the thing that is finally for real and for keeps, the eternal home – then anything in the physical or intellectual universe that you have asked to be that will collapse.”
The Gospel According to Zen, page 114

(One true touch from God will ruin your life. You'll never be satisfied with anything - except God - again.)
