Question Everything

The above two sculptures represent the two ways of holding life. Both contain loss, emptiness. One smiles peacefully.


Question Everything
The difference IMO, is the mental attitude.
Honestly "religion" provide me the better attitude but it was not a straight path.

I really love some of the eastern teachings on yin/yang, kintsugi,

Kintsugi - Wikipedia

Kintsugi (金継ぎ, "golden joinery"), also known as kintsukuroi (金繕い, "golden repair"),[1] is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery by mending the areas of breakage with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum; As a philosophy, it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise.[5]


Also, wabi-sabi (侘寂) is a world view centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of appreciating beauty that is "imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete" in nature.

The above is a philosophy (rather than religion). It has brought me much peace.

Nothing has brought to attention the critical state of mental health as the recent death of a mother and three children.

An update; We all see the ad's on tv for an assortment of drugs to treat depression. These are followed with warnings of possible side affects.
"One of the major issues here is the horrific overmedication of drugs that caused homicidal ideation, suicidal ideation," Reddington told the newspaper. "They [Lindsay and her husband] went to doctors repeatedly saying 'Please help us.' This was turning her into a zombie ... the medications that were prescribed were over the top, absolutely over the top."
