We are all hungry but “Not hungry for the bread, and not thirsty for water, but rather to hear the word of G-d”. We cannot fill our void with material possessions; they are mere traps that leave us emptier than before.
Our inner yearning only increases in time as we are left in a spiritual vacuum in modern time. We are blessed with substance; yet it is hollow. Western society directs us to outside stimuli. We have been conditioned to feel based on what the world feeds us. Emuna enables us to loosen the external grip and become liberated to grow beyond the physical worldly measurement and standard.

In practice, ask yourself, “How have I been filling my voids lately?” Have you been using materialistic getaways & objects?
