Beware the bareness of a busy life, said Socrates.
And how right he was.
We all strive to be busy, to have a job, to do “something”.
And yet it is only when we do nothing, that we live our lives to the fullest extent.
Chaplin once told Einstein during the debut of the film City Lights in California, in 1930… “The people applaud me because everybody understands me, and they applaud you because no one understands you”. Einstein asked Chaplin, “What does it all mean?” Chaplin replied, “Nothing.” (source)
We all try to find meaning.
If we do not, we try to create it.
But it is the meaningless moments of our live which give meaning to it…
Stroll down the forest.
Be with your loved ones.
And you will feel your self smiling. For no reason.
