Seth on justifying existence via insecurity

“The same artificial need to vindicate being is present in many of my readers, and various core beliefs may be built up to hide this inner insecurity. You may “justify your life” by biological creativity, and then latch onto your children and never want to let go. You may use your career instead. But in all cases you must come to grips with such unnecessary ideas, face the reality of your creaturehood, and see that you certainly have as much of a place in the universe as a squirrel, an ant or a leaf. You do not question their right to exist. Why question your own?” ~ Seth in The Nature of Personal Reality
