Existentialism Within the Flow of Life

Existentialism is a word that expresses something we can commonly call, how we live here and now. Furthermore, we live best when we fully live within the moment. Thus, we are responsible for how we live through the act of conscious or unconscious beingness.


Philosophers throughout our history share a mutual understanding that we co-create the manifestation of life. Furthermore, our participation in life is either active or passive (conscious or unconscious). This basically suggests that being aware of, and actively participating within, this moment results in life becoming authentic. Wikipedia shares the following information about two of these philosophers. I paraphrase the excepts. 

Søren Kierkegaard (1813 – 1855) was a Danish philosopher. He is regarded as the first existentialist philosopher, though he did not use the term existentialism. He proposed that each individual—not society or religion—is solely responsible for giving meaning to life and living it passionately and sincerely, or ‘authentically’.

Jean-Paul Charles Aymard Sartre (1905 – 1980) was a French philosopher. He wrote. At first man is nothing. Only afterward will he be something, and he himself will have made what he will be.

Let’s do away with the philosophical words and jargon relating to existentialism. We can simplify this by acknowledging that fully and truthfully living life involves a clear awareness of now.  Furthermore, we are responsible for now and how we observe this moment.

Therefore, your observation and interaction to life either opens or closes the portal to the realm of conscious living. Thus, you recognize the interwoven universality of being through your aware presence. Accordingly, this allows you to acknowledge the flowing energy within all things. Hence, the depth and essence of living suddenly become obvious and simplistic when you recognize yourself in everything. And, conscious participation in this moment reveals how you are truly influencing each experience. Suddenly, there is a constant ease and harmony felt through your observation of self and non-self within how life unfolds.
