Because the system forces us to struggle? Do we struggle for family, for the wife and kids, provide them with food and shelter? For self realisation, to show the world what we’re made of? For ego, because it makes us feel big to play the martyr? For ego, because it makes us feel big to play the victor?
Do we struggle because someone commands us to struggle, some supernatural entity?
No. We struggle for no reason. We exist in a state of struggle: there’s no reason for it. We’re completely free to relate to our struggle in any way we see fit. Struggle is struggle: sublimity is freedom that comes from recognising this.
