A Hole In The Soul The Size Of The Creator

534A person has a hole in his soul the size of God, and everyone fills it as best he can (attributed to Jean Paul Sartre)

And the notion of a “God-shaped hole” attributed to Pascal:

What else does this craving, and this helplessness, proclaim but that there was once in man a true happiness, of which all that now remains is the empty print and trace? This he tries in vain to fill with everything around him, seeking in things that are not there the help he cannot find in those that are, though none can help, since this infinite abyss can be filled only with an infinite and immutable object; in other words by God himself (Blaise Pascal, Pensées VII).

My Response: Yes, only the Creator can fill this hole with Himself.

Question: That is, I must call upon the Creator to fill this hole in me?

Answer: Yes, so that He Himself fills this hole with Himself.

Question: How can this be done?

Answer: This is His business.

Question: Is the feeling of the hole a feeling of emptiness? What is it?

Answer: It is a feeling that I really lack the Creator.

Question: Should a person feel that he lacks the Creator?

Answer: Yes. In order to fill the hole that the Creator initially created in him.

Question: Does it mean that the Creator created it on purpose?

Answer: Our egoism absorbs everything like a black hole and only the Creator can fill this black hole with Himself.

Question: I should say to Him: “Come and fill this hole, I cannot live like this anymore”?

Answer: I must say: “I ask You, I demand that the black hole in me that You created, You fill it Yourself because I can do nothing about it!”

This is our ego. Only the Creator can fill it up.
