Loneliness, misery, despair, loss, sadness

All Men’s Miseries By Blaise Pascal

This infamous quote by French mathematician, physicist, and philosopher Blaise Pascal (1623 - 1662) radically points to a pretty contemporary issue. So many people nowadays have to constantly distract themselves from themselves.

Blaise Pascal's quote: Men's miseries. (Graphic by h.r.fox @ Ultrafeel)

More than ever before, we have dozens of options at each moment to make sure that we don’t confront ourselves. We kill time and hence the possibilty to find out who we really are through smoking, watching stupid tv-shows, surfing boring websites, listening to bad music, hanging out with people we don’t really like and on and on…

The remedy?

Sit on your ass, shut up and do – nothing!

Simple, probably painful in the beginning but sure as hell effective if you keep on…doing nothing at all.
If you’re patient enough, you will automatically start to become aware what’s going on within your inner world (which is yourSELF…) In this context see Martin Zoller‘s essay on loneliness and Mark McCloskey’s poem on what you are.
