Recently Bob Edelstein writes on "We are No-thing"

Bob Edelstein on his blog Authentic Engagement has a recent article entitled "We are No-thing -From no-thing-ness I discover my unique existential identity" in which he suggests an alternate paradigm to "being a somebody or something" in our culture.

"Crisis often mobilizes us to experience the transitory nature of life and our no-thing-ness. Acknowledging that we are no-thing goes against the cultural paradigm that all we are is some-thing. One must come from the space of one’s no-thing in order to be authentically some-thing." Read the full article
