We searchers

via

"I am one of the searchers. There are, I believe, millions of us. We
are not unhappy, but neither are we really content. We continue
to explore life, hoping to uncover its ultimate secret. We continue
to explore ourselves, hoping to understand. We like to walk along
the beach, we are drawn by the ocean, taken by its power, its
unceasing motion, its mystery and unspeakable beauty. We like
forests and mountains, deserts and hidden rivers, and the lonely
cities as well. Our sadness is as much a part of our lives as is our
laughter. To share our sadness with one we love is perhaps as
great a joy as we can know - unless it be to share our laughter. We
searchers are ambitious only for life itself, for everything
beautiful it can provide. Most of all we love and want to be loved.
We want to live in a relationship that will not impede our
wandering, nor prevent our search, nor lock us in prison walls;
that will take us for what little we have to give. We do not want to
prove ourselves to another or compete for love."
