What is true for me is that it is not "sad." It is how it is.
The "missing" you allude to is actually part of the game. Some miss
it, some don't. The game entails all aspects of phenomenality: the
good the bad and the ugly. ;-)
It is only the stories we tell ourselves about "how" things "should"
be that create the sadness. Drop the stories, there is no sadness.
There is "As It IS," and only that.
