Being a human being is not a simple business. Our hearts are cauldrons full of diverse feelings: restlessness, emptiness, nostalgia, longing, alienation, paranoia, and loneliness. As the cauldron is stirred by the events of our lives, these feelings rise to the surface, and we find ourselves pushed and pulled in many directions all at the same time. The result, unless understood for what it really is, is a painful confusion and tension. This can easily lead to a lot of inexplicable unhappiness as we wonder why we are so restless and divided, why we cannot simply settle down and be relaxed.
