When the world feels incomprehensible my solution has always been to read. 

The philosopher Iain Mcgilchrist says,
"Attention is a moral act ".
I think reading is a quiet revolution. It's a way to gain an understanding of the world from different points of view. 
Jacob Needleman, American philosopher, says,
"Always stay with the contradiction, if you stay you'll see that there is always something more than two opposing truths, the whole truth always includes a third part which is the reconciliation".
