It does not, no, and this is the whole goal: to find absolute happiness, to defeat all fear, not to create distractions which create them temporarily. It is the point of every pursuit man engages with, that he might find happiness finally through this new desire. Absolute happiness and removal of fear comes from an inner experience that grows from unknown sources within us. I cannot say that belief and hope are meaningful at all, because they are the types of consolations I have talked about earlier. We must come to a place of genuine realization, a point where we are truly content simply being. Life has given us everything, yet we seek more and more, happiness is found in realizing we already have enough. It is to stop and realize we never needed to be here, that in chasing desires we are just avoiding the beauty that is all around us. There is absolutely no point to anything, yet we have been given the opportunity to experience it all. We have not even been asked, it has simply been handed to us, yet we go on squandering it because of greed. Truly, I tell you it is a beautiful thing when it directly hits you "I am fooling myself", you see it currently, but if you are still pursuing things I cannot say it has really sunk in yet. It is fine, we all go at our own pace, just do not die still wanting more, you must find that place of fulfillment and I say to you it is not outside you.
