You ask them how they came by the void within.

Do you feel something is missing within you? Do you long for something inside you?

We all long for what makes us whole and complete.  Sometime we lose a piece of our soul at an early age to trauma and/or abuse in order to survive.  Sometime we sell a piece of our soul, contrary to our core belief and ethics, for a quick fix of power, money or comfort.

It is very important to be aware of the consequences of our trade offs.  The only thing that remains for us after death is our soul.  It is our soul that we need to treasure, and we must not compromise the integrity of our soul.

For Sale 

Look around.
For sale signs are everywhere.

Take a look at the faces of the sellers.

Grim, dull eyes, tired and spiritless.

You can see and feel a void within them.

You ask them how they came by the void within.

You will hear many replies.

 I sold a piece of my soul to feel safe.

I sold a piece of my soul to survive.

I sold a piece of my soul for a large sum of money.

I sold a piece of my soul to be powerful. 

I sold a piece of my soul to stay in a relationship. 

I sold a piece of my soul to keep my pride. 

I sold a piece of my soul to keep peace in my family.

I sold a piece of my soul to get approval and love. 

I sold a piece of my soul to feed my ego. 

Now gain back your long lost soul.

Let go of what really does not matter.
Cherish what truly matters.

Adept way to put focus on "...faces of the sellers." Often I study crowds of people's faces and see what you have written here....the void. I believe there is a collective selling of soul that occured when "they locked up the food," which is a concept Daniel Quinn presents in his three books Ismael, Beyond Civilization, and The Story of B. Working for money to buy food I believe has played a huge part in creating that 'void', when we changed from hunters/gatherers to 'agriculture' = locking up the food. What could be more devastating to a creature of the earth who once was as self-sufficient as any other species on this planet? This may tie in with your two writings: "Our Necessities" and "Our Relationship with Money". . . maybe what we need more than anything is to become part of nature again, somehow, if that were ever possible.
