๐Ÿ“… Thought for today:

โ€˜The least of things with a meaning is worth more in life than the greatest of things without it.โ€™

Does the absence of meaning cause you anxiety?

I am feeling philosophical this morning, and it caused me to think about meaning.

The thought that things happen for a reason, that there is a purpose.

This is not my view but one which is commonly held.

It came up reading something in the newspaper this morning, another dreadful event, where a columnist asks, “Why is this happening to these people?”

I realise I am straying off into Viktor Frankl territory and so bring my reverie back to how to sit comfortably in the absence of meaning, or purpose.

I think I can do that and start to wonder whether this is because I think there is a meaning that I cannot see and relaxing my mind will allow me to see it?

Having the time for such mental meanderings is meaningful to me.
