Saying that life is meaningless is like stepping into a wilderness and saying there is no shelter.
The fact that we have the ability and inclination to build shelter, to make meaning, is a message from the universe.
It says, "what you are will provide what you need."

I used at one time to say that, in order to get clear how a sentence is used, it was a good idea to ask oneself the question: ‘How would one try to verify such an assertion?’ But that’s just one way among others of getting clear about the use of a word or sentence. For example, another question which it is often very useful to ask oneself is: ‘How is this word learned?’ ‘How would one set about teaching a child to use this word?’
Ludwig Wittgenstein, in Gasking and Jackson, ‘Wittgenstein as a Teacher’

okay but I made myself laugh imagining a world where shen wei’s students are all so overprotective that it ends up fucking with so many things. This strange COP keeps hovering??? Um, No!!! ‘Sorry, Chief Zhao, it’s exam week.’ :) (aggressive) as they shove by to take up office hour times. And poor zhao yulan just wanting to TALK but is suddenly confronted with a barricade of however-many grad students who havent properly slept in days and Will Kill for caffeination. because if he messes with their favorite professor there will be C o n s e q u e n c e s.

Theologian Eckhart said that symbols are vital seeds of potential; images that serve as thresholds that once crossed lead to a realm of new meaning. “When the soul wants to experience something, she throws out an image in front of her and then she steps into it”.

It’s true that some philosophers say that Nothing exists, except in dreams, that our words carry meaning like the hidden roots of stars, that ideas flake off the walls of our metaphors like old paint.
Richard Jackson, from “Misunderstood,” Out of Place: Poems (Ashland Poetry Press, 2014)

The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.
