Feeling the emptiness, the spiritual emptiness

The world suffers from a great Spiritual Void

Spiritual emptiness according to Marian Rojas Estapé

This world suffers from a great spiritual void. 90% of people do not know why they get up every morning.


Spirituality can be understood as a dimension of human existence that relates to the meaning and purpose of life, transcendent beliefs and values, and the connection to a higher power or to oneself. Spirituality can influence a person’s mental and emotional health and be an important resource in their search for meaning and purpose.

This world suffers from a great spiritual void

This world suffers from a great spiritual void and this leads to a frantic search for relaxation methods such as yoga or meditation, and the need for stimuli, bodily satisfactions, food, alcohol, sex, shopping, social networks or drugs. We seek sensations so as not to allow the uncomfortable feeling of spiritual emptiness. These things do not have to be bad, but they replace the true meaning of life.

We have lost our Values

We must return to values, those that make us grow as people, those that perfect us and those that guide us in moments of chaos and uncertainty, there is only one antidote for those moments, there is only one, and that is love.

There are arguments on both sides about whether or not society is losing its values. Some argue that society is falling apart due to a lack of values such as honesty, integrity and responsibility. Others argue that society is evolving and changing, and that values that were once considered important are no longer relevant or have been replaced by more progressive and tolerant values.

It is true that certain values and traditions may have changed over time, but it is important to keep in mind that these changes can also be a positive force for society. At the same time, it is important to recognize the importance of upholding certain fundamental values that contribute to a just, equitable and prosperous society.

Ultimately, society is made up of individual people and it is the responsibility of each person to cultivate and defend the values they hold dear.

We live without Love

Love for a person, falling in love, really loving someone… I like to say that deep inside each one of us there are hidden treasures that rebel. When you really want it. Love opens us up and gives us wings to achieve anything. Love for a person, love for others, love, wings to ideals and beliefs.

As Confucius said, it is not the circumstances of life that make people happy, but their ideals.

Nelson Mandela, Robben Island, St. Thomas More who despite adverse circumstances were happy because they were consistent with their ideals.

We live lost, without direction or meaning

90% of people do not know why they get up every morning. We have lost the reasons to rejoice and many times sadness, resentment and bad moods have become dictators of our lives.

“As a psychiatrist, I usually define happiness as living settled in a balanced way in the present.” Says Dr. Marian Rojas

Having overcome the wounds of the past and looking forward to the future, those who live stuck in the past are the depressed, the resentful, the bitter. Those who live constantly anxious about the future are the anxious ones.

We suffer from Depression and Anxiety

The two great diseases of the 21st century. We have forgotten that we only have the capacity to act in the now and today. 90% of the things we worry about never ever happen.

We live tyrannized by the mind. We have a constant need to control everything.

It is necessary to realize that today the mind rules over us, to order, to control. We follow the guidelines of reason, we become beings who forget. The mind is becoming a great tyrant that does not leave the most important thing, which is the heart that needs to control everything, to control, to control the future.

Rates of depression and anxiety have increased in many societies around the world in recent years. This is due to a combination of factors, including stress and work pressure, lack of social support, economic uncertainty, and technological and social changes.

The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that depression is one of the leading causes of disability globally, and is estimated to affect more than 264 million people worldwide. Anxiety is also a common mental health problem, and is estimated to affect more than 300 million people worldwide.

We live without passion for anything.

The most productive work comes from the hands of a contented man. The winners are those who enjoy their work and that means if my look is always judgmental, I cannot enjoy because the perfectionist, the one who needs to control his business and his family, his children, everything, lives constantly suffering.

We have no Attitude.

The difference between our best version and our worst version is the attitude I have towards life.

Today we know that when you wake up in the morning and say I think it’s going to be a good day, your prefrontal cortex, which is the area of concentration, planning and problem solving, increases blood flow and connections to the brain.

Happiness consists of good health and poor memory

Beware of rancor because rancor consists in the fact that the two main motives of my life become revenge and hatred. People with grudges make you sick.

We do not know how to forgive

Forgiveness is an act of love. And forgiveness has two notes, one, the immediate relief one feels when saying it. The other consists of renouncing hatred and revenge.

“To forgive is to go to the past and come back safe and sound.”

The basis of a healthy brain is kindness, we must base our relationships on what unites us rather than on what separates us. If we look for arguments, we will always have thousands to separate us.

But we must unite, compassion is superior to empathy. Empathy is the ability to put oneself in the other person’s place. Compassion is that I put myself in your place, but with instruments I pull you up.

We do not look inside

We had to look inside ourselves again. We must meditate, meditation makes us see ourselves inside in order to know ourselves and thus be able to accept and love ourselves. We must slow down to see, observe and enjoy.

There are several reasons why people may have difficulty getting to know themselves. Some of the factors include:

  1. Fear of authenticity: Sometimes people may be afraid to discover aspects of themselves that they do not like or are uncomfortable with.
  2. Lack of introspection: Introspection is the ability to look inside oneself and reflect on one’s thoughts and feelings. If a person does not devote time to introspection, it can be difficult to know oneself.
  3. Limiting thoughts and beliefs: People may have limiting thoughts and beliefs about themselves that prevent them from seeing their true selves.
  4. Emotional avoidance: Some people may avoid their emotions or not allow themselves to feel and process their feelings. This can make self-knowledge difficult.
  5. External influences: The expectations and opinions of others can have an impact on how people view themselves. These influences can distort self-image and hinder self-knowledge.

Self-knowledge is an ongoing process and can be difficult, but it can also be very liberating and therapeutic. Some people find therapy, meditation and introspection helpful in improving their self-awareness.

Thanks to Dr. Marian Rojas Estapé for spreading such a valuable message to the world.

Don’t believe anything you just read, experiment and think for yourself.
