Slumber Hellen Pasarea

hellenpasarea I sit before flowers
hoping they will train me
in the art of opening up

I stand on mountain tops
believing that avalanches
will teach me to let go

I know nothing,
but i'm here to learn.

onward_upward_ Life is absurd. At least that's what philosopher, Albert Camus, believes. In his famed novel, The Myth of Sisyphus, he introduced the idea of absurdism; which, I won't go into detail, but in its simplest form states: efforts to find meaning in life will fall short because of the sheer amount of knowledge that exists in a universe that continues to expand.

Sounds dismal, right?

Of course it does; using the word absurd to describe life generally doesn't need further explanation. However, what's interesting about this school of thought is that it's rooted in optimism.

The idea of absurdism was to make one aware of the absurdity to trigger a response of hopeful defiance to it. Camus, in particular, believed one should live defiantly against the absurd and continue to explore, search, and even create meaning in one's life.

Think about it: How often have you thought about the absurdity of some of life's rituals? Almost everyone, while in college, at some point, thinks 'do I really need this?' I know of many in their respective careers who wonder everyday about the true value of their work. Even, if we are unaware, thoughts like these bring about the idea of absurdity.

It's not the absurd, itself, that matters, it's how you respond.

RISE ABOVE AND RISE AGAINST

What's beautiful about every morning, is that it provides a fresh opportunity to rise against the absurdity. A blank sheet of paper is absurd because of the endless possibilities that could exist on its face; interestingly enough those same possibilities compel you to rise above the absurdity and create something meaningful.

We can live in the same manner. Questioning the meaning is a start, but how you respond to the uncertainty is the true test. BE DEFIANT! Command and demand the life you wish to lead; give it your own meaning and live awesomely!

So far as we know, we get one of these things called a life. It's a blank canvas, seemingly ridiculous, yet full of possibility. Do something remarkable with it.

ONWARD & UPWARD!
