Anxiety, Dread and Angst

The existentialists think that giving your emotions a place is important when you grapple with the meaning of life
For existentialists trying to be detached and rational to inquire about the meaning of life will not do…
As for existentialists the more involved and engaged into your own existence the more emotion play an important part for understanding life…
Reason can be a good way to analyze life…
But it promotes an understanding from the outside…
And as a result using reason to understand life means that you will be detached from your existence…
For existentialists trying to understand your life means paying close attention to your moods…
Existentialists think that moods play a primary role in providing insights for your existence…
The special mood that existentialists are interested in is the mood of (anxiety)…
They believe that anxiety reveals that people are individual and that kind of nothingness lies at the core of them…
These existentialists’ insights brought by anxiety are unsettling for most people…
It’s tough to think that nothingness lies at the foundation of what you are…
And as a result you cannot find firm answers outside yourself in how you should live your life…
Of course all what has been written above is not true in Islam as a religion…
As we can examine our lives using reason too…
And it doesn’t mean that by using our reason that we would be detached from our lives…
And also Islam believes that nothingness does not lie at the core of who or what we are…
As Islam believes that we possess some type of human nature at the core of who we are…
Do we need to be traditional existentialists to believe in what the Islam as a religion believes…?
Of course traditional existentialists would disagree with me…
But as I have promised I am trying to analyze traditional existentialism as a philosophy in the eyes of Islam as a religion…

    I have been browsing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all
    website owners and bloggers made good content as you did,
    the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.

    Have a look at my web site Scott Yancey Review
