Disillusionment & Meaning; Where is joy?

 

It’s interesting, how we feel when we find ourselves simply drifting along the river of life, feeling disillusioned, sad and depressed at times or simply dark, angry, confused.. It’s interesting, because when we look at the same floaty path of life and the choices made, and the turns that life choicelessly took..and find a meaning, a value, and look for that common string that binds things together, life doesn’t feel illusionary… one doesn’t feel lost n ‘drifty’..

I suppose when we keep the goal of finding some meaning out of life’s events than trying to achieve a specific meaning or make something out of it, we may find joy from within and a different kind of motivation or driving force in life- one which keeps us rooted.

Art & Cognitive Dissonance

Living with a lot of dissonance, inner conflict and ambivalence can be confusing, tumultuous and painful.

Relaxing and finding a comfortable environment and space, expressing, relaxing, more expressing and being open to approach life as an exploration; observing without judging, can help bring clarity, peace and integrity.

Art helps. Especially, with the expressing and relaxing.
