LOSS

“Mostly it is loss which teaches us the worth of things.”

“Meist belehrt erst der Verlust über den Wert der Dinge.”

Arthur Schopenhauer in “Parerga and Paralipomena” a collection of philosophical reflection. As humanity evolves and our planet becomes more stressed with its inhabitants needs and greeds, dealing with loss is our chance for the future and maybe our only actual chance for survival. Loss is as much part of our world as eating, drinking, walking, talking is. Its a daily occurrence: lost my glasses, keys or marbles. Mainly nothing serious, we find the keys, the glasses are on our head and the marbles suddenly roll round as normal. But some loss is irreplaceable, lost for ever. Learning from these experiences could allow us to make decisions earlier, which will help us to protect this amazing planet for future generations. What is gone - is no more, the future can be amazing as long as we are considerate, sensitive and learn.

“Jeder dumme Junge kann einen Käfer zertreten. Aber alle Professoren der Welt können keinen herstellen.”

“Any stupid boy can crush a beetle, but all the professors in the world cannot create a new beetle.”
(Schopenhauer again)

As a society we are surrounded with problems:
BEES ARE DYING
LOSS AND EXTINCTION OF LIFE, BOTANICAL AND ZOOLOGICAL
LOSS OF PRIVACY
LOSS OF BELONGINGS
LOSS OF DIRECTION, MORAL VALUES
COMPOST, ROTTING, DECAYING BEAUTY AND VALUES
BALLOONS BURSTING, DREAMS BURSTING
CLIMATE CHANGE
LOST CITY UNDER THE OCEAN, METAPHOR FOR LAND FLOODING
MANDALAS REPRESENT IMPERMANENCE

Consciously or not, we are all on a quest for answers, trying to learn the lessons of life. We grapple with fear and guilt. We search for meaning, love, and power. We try to understand fear, loss, and time. We seek to discover who we are and how we can become truly happy.
