The Happy Mountain of Sisyphus

“The gods had condemned Sisyphus to ceaselessly rolling a rock

to the top of a mountain, whence the stone would fall back of

its own weight.  They had thought with some reason that

there is no more dreadful punishment than futile and hopeless labor.”

 

― Albert Campus, The Myth of Sisyphus[1]

 

Just like Sisyphus, I am repeatedly doing things that are invisible to others.  Nobody sees what I am doing, but only myself, seeing that kind of futility and loneliness.

 

Yet, others still ask: “What is this?” “What does this represent?” “What is the purpose of being presence?

 

I am weary as Monet explains his Lotus, is that drawing? Is that light or shadow? That is just the colour paste!

 

Some would wonder its uniqueness after seeing it.  Some would become another person after viewing it.  If people change their insight, transform their mindset, and their Worldview becomes never the same again. Then they can make the World turn.

 

That is what I believe!
