How to Live?
by Mukesh Williams
Bookmark and Share
  We have lost our freedom,
Our intrinsic autonomy,
In trying to answer the question
How should we live?

We have lost our ability
To open our own free space
Within the house of language
Without the semiotics of discourse.

We wait for someone to tell us
How dear our life is,
How valuable others are,
How precious this planet is!

We then eroticize, fantasize and signify,
The pulsating flesh and
The desirable ‘Other’, and only then
Become familiar with some identifiable value,

We cannot create enough space for ourselves
Or for the Other
To touch the effervescence of existence
Without ethics, science or physics.

Look at the nomads, the gypsies, even the Greeks,
Who realized their own significance
Without intervening encumbrances
Of either the didactic or the scientific disciplines,

Look at them!
As they achieved their inner freedom,
Without metaphysics or ontology,
Through the unadulterated hermeneutics of being.
