Description
 
The following text is an extract from Buddhist Existentialism.

Invitation to the reader

Okay, there are rather a lot of words here. After all, I am a philosopher. However, I have found in the end that the best approach to life is to frequently practice a kind of close sympathetic nonjudgmental attention to things - a kind of wordless aesthetic attention to what is that tends to heighten a sense of stillness and beauty. Then, when it comes to adopting a reasoned philosophy to surround and support this practice, a way of thinking about the nature of life and reality, why not try positing a maximally positive and beautiful vision non-dogmatically, of course" until or unless someone can prove the worse is true? Which they can never do: see inside for reasons why. This double game of philosophical reasoning and aesthetic contemplation (of reflection and de-reflection) seems to aid toward the re-enchantment and self-enjoyment of life. Things get less heavy: one feels lighter. Of course, the game only applies if one is interested in en-lightening life in some such way. Whether you want to or not is up to you. Each to his own!
