Aesthetic pleasure “Poem”

Schopenhauer writes in his masterpiece volume “World as will and Idea”

“Aesthetic pleasure; the deliverance of knowledge from the servitude of the will, the forgetting of self as an individual, and the raising of the consciousness to the pure will-less, timeless, subject of knowledge, independent of all relations.”

What universal genius resides in Schopenhauer’s writings

His intuition of the platonic idea is brilliant

How reading Schopenhauer makes me feel like I belong somewhere

Reading Schopenhauer gives me highest form of aesthetic pleasure

What petty trifling of Intellect cast away by contemplating oneself as a knowing subject and nothing more than that

What an escape from sufferings of the individual self

Oh how the world envy my being now! who have taken refuge from life into philosophy
