The repressed fear of one's own death acts like a brake on emotions. As a result, there is no dialogue between mental and emotional intelligence. An inner vacuum is created. Who or what can fill this void?
Take, for example, wars, famines, or wealth and poverty. All of these disasters are man-made, that is, by us. The vacuum in us fills with suffering - our own and that of others - and we begin to think about solutions and work on them. With what success? Let's look at the world. As long as we don't start a dialog with ourselves, we long for the solution to solvable major tasks. We activate addiction to fame, hunting for records, wealth and poverty. All of this on a large and small scale. Our inner emptiness is seemingly filling up.
