Alternatively …

I draw from the absurd three consequences, which are my revolt, my freedom, and my passion.*
(Albert Camus)

All products are windows into other possible worlds …**
(Hugh Macleod)

As long as there remains the diversity of human curiosity, this will never be it.

Though, to find what Albert Camus describes as our revolt, freedom and passion within our peculiar curiosity will require our willingness to become lost, moving from what we know to what we do not know. Not only to be lost on the outside but on the inside too.

Some are willing to accommodate the former but not the latter.

There is always more and the important thing is to choose the path that keeps unfolding, taking us to new places and people and possibilities we hadn’t imagined.

This is the journey which will take us from judgement to openness, from cynicism to compassion, from fear to courage.

To remain where we are becomes absurd.

(*Albert Camus, quoted in Maria Popova’s Brain Pickings: On the Three Antidotes to the Absurdity of Life.)

What is your alternate reality?)
