The hunger after doing something positive, opposite the negative, makes us strive after being something else; in this struggle we feel, that we are alive, that there is a purpose with our life, that we gradually can remove the causes of the conflict and the sorrow.
We feel, that if we no longer were active, we would be nothing, be lost, our lives would be completely without meaning.
Therefore we continue, and that will say: we continue the divisions, the conflicts, the confusions and the opposites.
But in this process we at the same time feel, that there is something more which we all the time loose, that there exists something, which is quite different, something, which is above and beyond all this distress and misery.
This feeling is the existential guilt, the guilt over the unlived life.
In this way a permanent struggle is going on inside us.
