The lack of deep and intimate relationship with your own nature is what makes you want to seek out there–seek philosophies, seek religion, seek God, seek validation from people, seek love, seek happiness, etc.
To know your nature is to be content, without seeking anything, and truly knowing that you already have everything you need. Loss of intimacy with life results in trying to find answers, meanings, purpose for God, for your existence, for your emptiness.
Intimacy is to know yourself in deep, it is to go beyond the petty desires and conflicts of your mind. Your mind is always seeking, attaching itself to ways of life, religions, and to human creatures close to you.
Leave your mind, because your mind does not know intimacy in life; and you must become intimate to truly love and be happy without addictions and dependencies to your outside.
