We as humans are addicted to meaning and signification. We are aware that one day we’ll die and until that we are alive and we live with that suffering. We give the world a meaning to overcome death and suffering. What helps us isn’t just science and philosophy, but we count more in our art and poetry. Of course, that art and poetry are the best technologies that we invented to give the world a meaning. A poet give a meaning to nature, to her/his culture, cause, language and whatever her/his thoughts fit inside her/his imagination. The same things go for the artists, but they paint they paint out from their suffering and awareness that their life decade in everyday. Poets and artists are the most aware people and delighted by the knowledge of human condition and they are in touch with it.
I think that a world out of meaningless is a world without death and suffering. Human being wants to live eternally and never suffer; we want that point of eternity and the end of suffering. We do it as Ernest Becker noticed the three solutions to the problem of death: The religious, the creative and the romantic all are the best options to deal with the meaningless of the world. But, they’re not the answers. They just console us, as deep illusions and we need them we need illusions to survive.
Ending suffering isn’t through thinking that you suffer; dealing with death isn’t through thinking that you are immortal. Something more than thinking is creating; we must go outside to end and deal. Creation is turning what is inside to the outside, turn inside out. To create and be created by what you create. Is to create your own feedback loop of creation that turns and create you. I think that we can break with love and religion, but never with creation.
In every time we create the world goes to have some sense, then creativity breaks in every creation the meaningless of the world transforming it to a meaningful world. By turning what is inside the meaning to outside the meaningless, we create the meaningful world then it creates us. The feedback loop builds the meaningful world where there’s neither a death nor a suffering. Thanks for the poets and artists who suffer for us to transform the world and to make it better for us. Thank you! You are my beloved ones.
We are going forward towards that world of meaning with our poetry and art. We transform the world we are the gods and we like to be so and we are well in being so.
We know that the thing that stops us from risking falling in love is to be dissuaded and manipulated and what we use to think as joy and excitement were just nothing than someone who makes fun of us, there’s nothing true in this relationship and that shocks us, we fall in pain and we swear to never fall in love. Sometimes, the one who truly love us find no way to us, because we close everything. We think that we protect ourselves from pain and sorrow but we also forbidden love and joy to enter to our life. We can’t wish love without wishing pain with it. They are always close, we must see that.
Let the doors open to love and pain, as they enter and flow within you. You can not feel life if you do not feel it in its pain as in its love. Be like Nietzsche the higher man, the higher being who says: “There is as much wisdom in pain as there is in pleasure… That it hurts is no argument against it but its essence.” I call you to explore pain, days of sorrow, and the most terrifying things. Just turn your eyes, if you’ve that courage to face things as they are to challenge the fear of risking, when you feel little love for something or someone, just close your eyes and fall in love.
Risking in love is bravery; it’s a challenge, a challenge to fear to get it out from your heart and finding the eyes that you can see through them yourself. You find who you are not alone but through the eyes of the beloved ones. Now, it turns to be a question of who you are and how to know yourself. Then, never close the door, leave them open.
We swim in the sun everyday.
Forget the past of yesterday
Life is joy forget the pain.
Summer comes time to play.
Sea calls there’s joy if you stay.

Happiness is painted with the tears of sorrow. When the romantic love breaks, and all the wonderful moments turn to be just memories were been recorded that the heart must live them in every moment. Sorrow exists along the time; love is the drug that we take to forget the pain and sorrow that exist.
When romantic relationship breaks, we fall in a deep sorrow. Because we cease, seeing ourselves through the eyes of the other. Love is about finding yourself through the eyes of your beloved one. Death lost and sorrow. Love is what saves us, from death, lost and sorrow. Falling in love is inhale the beauty in your lungs, it’s to find yourself and to be happy. We fall in love because we want to save ourselves to find who we are through the eyes of the beloved one.
Ernest Becker and the problem of death. The romantic solution to the problem of death, when love turns us to be Gods. I save my beloved one then I save myself, if I can’t do that how can I save myself? How can I be happy? The most unbearable thing in romantic love is the separation, the dissolving of love. How could we accept this separation? We will be lost. How can that be? We fall in a deep pain and suffering. We don’t accept, because we can’t find who we are, we can’t see ourselves through the eye of the other.
Some people will think that it’s better to never fall in love and experience this profound pain. Because love is pain more than happiness. But, we must fall in love and risk just to enjoy the lost and to find who we are. Just to experience this tenderness to see yourself through the eyes of the other.
The saddest thing that we know and we don’t act to change it. It is the terror that the world live in. we must think and act to put a smile in the faces of those who suffer and endure such a terrifying experiences. Happiness is painted with the tears of sorrow. Those people that we don’t know and they belong to another culture they are different. But, we share we them a lot of things, some of them are suffering, life, love, the same rights, the same terror and the earth. Human being will always find a way to be happy, because s/he is addicted to happiness. S/he finds a way to overcome this condition, to turn things inside out and find the meaning of life. That is it, the meaning of life.
Think that we consume sorrow more than happiness; we consume our suffering. But, we don’t just stay crying and tearing up, we must do something and that thing is to create a space with the use of our imagination we use it to create a meta-representation to a happy world and then we act so. What we create, create us in return. I create therefore, I’m created. If we create happiness, then happiness itself creates us. The loop of creation, the feedback loop is the solution. The world becomes what we want it to become. We from inside out we are the creators created by their own creation.
Sorrow and happiness we give them a meaning and in return they give us a meaning to our life. It’s just the loop.
Brave is the one
S/he transforms sorrow to happiness.
Facing the pain and enjoying life
It’s, a brief existence
There’s always something to say, to paint and to sing. The things that we don’t get them out of us. From the inside, we just express them in tears and cries.
Sad images from the world, the pain that we carry in our hearts, closed from several years. We hear the cries of the refugees, people who lose their closed ones, slaughtered or imprisoned. The situation isn’t helpful or hopeful. Why do we cry? Because we are sad and as we go in age we carry more and more sadness. The better is that we need to transform it to what helps us, something helpful to live and to belong.
We shouldn’t just drop tears and howl. We must do something, make something and act for something. We can’t just let the world balanced to one side. We must make the equilibrium. We can’t give up because we are sad more than happy, or because the world is awful and terrifying. We can’t let terror wins. We humans win; because we are free we can make a choice and make ourselves.
Tears and cries aren’t weakness, but we remember for what do we live? Why do we live? And that we share our life with the others, but when we die we die alone. We don’t share death, we share life.
