Existentialism is a word used to define and explain something that we can commonly call living in the now. Furthermore it is about consciously living in the moment and being responsible for developing this existence through free-will.

There were many philosophers during the 19th and 20th century that shared a mutual understanding of our involvement in co-creating how life unfolds and what it means. These individuals basically suggested that being aware of and actively participating with this moment will result in everything becoming authentic. Wikipedia shares the following information about two of these philosophers.

Søren Kierkegaard was a Danish philosopher. He is generally considered to have been 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.

Existentialism and You

However we should not concern ourselves with the written details of these scholars. It is spiritually more beneficial to become aware of how this signpost to conscious living can help us. Existentialism could be considered a key stepping stone to experiencing balance and spiritual fulfillment.

Let’s do away with the philosophical words and jargon relating to Existentialism. We can simplify this by acknowledging that it involves a clear awareness of now, being responsible for now and deciding in the now.

How we respond to life can either open or close the portal to living consciously. Through awareness to our individual presence in life we can recognize how everything is interwoven. This will allow us to feel the flow of oneness and know that it is manifesting in all objects. The universe suddenly becomes smaller when we acknowledge ourselves in everything. More so it will be easier to maintain harmony with all life-forms and objects through the observation of the one self within life.
