🪨 myth of Sisyphus
Wisdom Letter #211
Have you heard of the myth of Sisyphus?
It’s a fascinating story from Greek mythology.
Sisyphus was a king who was punished by the gods for his deceitful and cunning nature.
The gods condemned him to an eternal and futile task in the underworld.
Sisyphus was forced to roll a large boulder up a steep hill, only to have it roll back down just before reaching the top.
This process was to be repeated for all eternity.
Watch the full story in this video -
The punishment of Sisyphus is often seen as a metaphor for the human condition.
It represents the struggle and frustration of life, where individuals constantly face challenges and obstacles that seem insurmountable.
Sisyphus's eternal task represents the never-ending cycle of effort and failure, and the feeling that our efforts are ultimately meaningless.
Something to think about.
