You are your life and nothing else…

Thursday June 21st, 2018 in Ampersand Latest

“Existantialist philosophers teach us we are responsible for creating a meaningful life in an absurd and unfair world.” In this article published in NewPhilosopher, Antonia Case discusses how in life we are ultimately responsible for our own actions. Committing ourselves to attaining a life which is utterly acceptable to us is just a matter of taking things into our own hands.

Danish philosopher Soren Kierkegaard makes it easy to understand through this illustration. “Imagine standing at the cliff face where you are afraid of falling, you also succumb to the impulse of throwing yourself off. Nothing is holding you back. Dread, anxiety and anguish rise to the surface. You can do as you please. Move forward into the yawning abyss or remain where you are. It is up to you. The realisation is that you have absolute freedom to decide the course of your life.”

And so it is. Let us remove the cliff face, take a step back and embrace your personal empowerment to drive change, grow and live your life values.

Read on here and understand how we can use our own resources to shape a better life. One in which we can be in total control.
