Acknowledging and absorbing this sadness

I had always been aware that the Universe is sad; everything in it, animate or inanimate, the wild creatures, the stones, the stars, was enveloped in the great sadness, pervaded by it. Existence had no use… I knew that the only rest from my anxiety — for I had been trembling even in infancy — lay in acknowledging and absorbing this sadness.
