Consistent immediate provision of all needs for the duration of one’s lived experience is indeed a mythical life to which some people aspire. No one wants to live within the dissonance caused by an unmet need. Romantic love, interpersonal intimacy, self-fulfillment, companionship, and holistic well being are all lost when discussions about unmet needs arise. Our discussions around what we need often begin and end with power and money.

Within a seemingly stable environment, your mind will ramble in restlessness as you are surrounded by what equates to an abyss of chaos for you. Lack or unmet needs shake the very foundations of our over indulgent and entitled western sensibilities. During periods of need, we are forced to examine ourselves and our values.
When you are found lacking in some area or another, ask the Unmet Need to show you where and in what form Wholeness seeks to emerge within and beyond you.
