The meaning of life differs from man to man, from day to day, from hour to hour. What matters, therefore, is not the meaning of life in general but rather the specific meaning of a person’s life at a given moment.
When you follow the path from the East via Schleißheimer straße straight to Dachau, on your left hand side you can see a gravel pit. A pit, a pool of pure turquoise water, with on the green bushy shore little flowers of violet. MAGNIFICENT. Rays of sun light reflecting diamonds from the water.
A road, leading around the village, to darkness, devastation, a ripped still open burning wound. An eclipse of time and humanity. The place, the wideness. The Silence, of so many voices.
Viktor Frankl was an Austrian neurologist and psychiatrist. As a holocaust survivor, Viktor experienced several concentration camps. He is among others known for his bestseller “Mans Search For Meaning“. The ultimate freedom is the freedom of choice. The motivational force of an individual is to find a meaning in life. The belief striving to find meaning in life is the primary, most powerful motivating and driving force a human in life.
In many sessions and mentoring I refer and apply Viktor’s philosophy and legacy. Resilience. Freedom, the freedom of choice. You can only live the life that you design and desire if it is on your own terms. And in that truth, in that core, it is your life. In this purity of genuine belief and faith it does not matter how your environment or circumstances look upon you. That is ultimate dedicated and created freedom.
The emptiness. The Silence, of so many voices. The silence of forgiveness. The stillness of freedom.
