Diversions in the Third Person Plural
Many people cannot bear being still; so they move incessantly from one activity to another, attempting to escape from looking at themselves. The “existential vacuum,” their inner emptiness, may manifest itself during moments of stillness and silence — to paraphrase Viktor Frankl. In other words, they “run” from their emptiness by trying to fill it with activities that don’t really satisfy the human heart. They may also run for fear of what they might see inside themselves, which “wells up” from their conscience.
Application of the Lesson in the Second Person Singular
One thing is for sure: No matter how far you go; nor how fast you get there; no matter what you do nor how often you do it, there is one human person from whom there is no escaping, namely, yourself! You always take yourself with yourself. So learn to be comfortable being inside your skin by enjoying the moments of stillness and silence; for in them, you will “meet” and love yourself; not only that, you will find God, an ever-present companion along life’s way.
