Square Peg In a Round Hole

73 Square peg in round 1
Material existence is a place of much confusion and suffering. The reason for that is that the eternal soul, whose nature is to find unlimited happiness in a natural love for God, is trying to find that same love through various misdirected pursuits. Everyone is looking for pleasure. That is the inseparable nature of life and is the symptom of the presence of the soul. People are creating entire civilizations, putting generations and generations of labor with their intelligence and their planning and their hard physical work, trying to create an environment of pleasure.

Unfortunately, it is simply not possible to find pleasure in forgetfulness of our eternalnature. Like a fish trying to find happiness outside of the sea, people are trying to findhappiness outside of their relationship with God.
