~Asti~

Asti is a Sanskrit word that means “it is” or “exists.” In the context of Indian philosophy, asti is the root of the word, astika, which refers to any of the classical schools of thought that believe in the existence of God and the authority of the Vedas, in particular. Asti is also the root word of nastika, which refers to those who do not believe in the authority of the Vedas.

Asti is also the name of a minor figure in Hindu mythology. She and her sister, Prapti, were married to Kamsa, who was king of Vrishni and in some accounts is described as a demon.

Philosophy {7} ~ Existentialism

Existentialism is a school of 20th-century philosophers who shared the belief that philosophical thinking begins with the human subject – not merely the thinking subject, but the acting, feeling, living, human individual. In existentialism, the individual’s starting point is characterized by what has been called “the existential attitude,” or a sense of disorientation and confusion in the face of an apparently meaningless or absurd world. A central proposition of existentialism is that existence precedes essence, which means that the actual life of the individual is what constitutes what could be called his or her “essence” instead of there being a predetermined essence that defines what it is to be a human. Thus, the human beings – through their own consciousness – create their own values and determine a meaning to their life.

Poetry {44} ~ ABSURDITY OF EXSISTENCE

Have you ever contemplated the absurdity of our human exsistence?

That we are talking monkeys in assistance

Hurling through space on a rock

You came through a vaginal dimension portal, opening the lock

Do any of us know where we came from?

To succumb

To the poet’s embrace of the emptiness of life

And impregnate it with meaning through strife

At the very depths of life, which seduces us all

There is only absurdity and a plethora of more absurdity

The only thing that can beat absurdity is lucidity

Lucidly aware within the dream of the multifaceted diamond of the formless creator.
