Remedy for Ennui


I believe, like many others, that only G-d can fill the void within man; so, it would follow that any dissatisfaction with what the world has to offer should successfully lead to a search that transcends this world. Otherwise, the angst, frustration, and general anxiety that some experience in their lives could lead to ennui.

Instead of ennui ultimately leading to a rejection of this world as meaningless, as contended by some strands of philosophy, we should feel compelled to cast our eyes Above.

Ennui must be transcended by finding lasting value in an Absolute Good. I believe that Constant may only be found within the depths of my belief in G-d. “He was, He is, and He always will be.” Moreover, He is not only transcendent (above the world), He is immanent (within the world).

H’Shem may be sought out, and in return for our efforts, He will provide comfort in a spiritual sense, even though He is in Shomayim (Heaven). His presence may also be found amidst our daily lives on earth, when we are able to foster enough awareness to find Him.
