The feeling of the absurd arises when one’s search for meaning comes into conflict with an irrational and meaningless universe. If there is inherent meaning for this life, I cannot know it. Longing for purpose is a waste of time. Life can be more fulfilling without meaning or significance.
I remain aware of the absurdity of existence. I do not reject it nor succumb to it. I simply accept it and allow this awareness to liberate my existence as it allows me to create my own meaning.
