  • "Cut the rope and go into a free fall. No, I don't mean “ending it all”, nothing suicidal. Nihilistic abyss is not so nihilistic, after all. At the very least you believe in its existence - that is already more than nothing. But what is more important, it is filled with unmet expectations. Life seems empty and meaningless and lacking… Lacking what exactly? It is lacking whatever you expected it to have. It is lacking your expectations. Those are your rope. You know that your expectations are not met, yet you are not willing to let go of them. Cut the rope. Wave bye-bye to your expectations and go into a free fall, exploring whatever happens to come your way. Every moment brings something new, and it is always something unexpected… if you drop the expectations! Don't make big plans. Just see what the next moment brings. It will never be empty or meaningless, I promise you, if you let go of the mental filter that cuts off everything but your expectations. That filter is what gives the world its nihilistic colors, not the world itself."
