“People have a hard time letting go of their suffering.
Out of a fear of the unknown, they prefer suffering that is familiar.”
~Thich Nhat Hanh~

People are hurting

People need help

People are in pain

People have problems

People want routine

People want to believe they will be saved

People are looking for relief

People are looking for a quick fix

People want an hour of power

People want to shout

People want to sing

People want a way to release energy

People want a good-feeling thing

People want the hype and then more hype

People want a fortune cookie sermon…“That sermon was just for me!”

People really want to break free and be soulful, but they think they have to follow the masses when what they seek is hiding inside of them; not a building, not another, not a sermon, not a song and not a book…it’s already there…it always has been.
