“If” by Rudyard Kipling sounds like a stoic but to my mind, Epictetus is the stoic and may just know how to live a happy/good life.

Many people may never get to the point of applying the good life to their way of being because it is difficult to learn how to apply these principles when you don’t have a teacher who embodies them.

Anyone of the top ten books above will introduce the best teacher to show you.

Epictetus shows us what is important through his actions: a slave who excelled at stoicism and as a teacher.

In old age, he created a family through the need to look after an older boy. He probably enlisted a servicewoman to help him look after the child.

Listen to what he has to offer, his wisdom is a primer for a happy life and then some.

Well Armed…

Do no harm.

Do your best.

Make a test for all the rest.

Stop yourself or arrest, then decide.

Do I choose freedom or prison?

If you have a choice, leave prison for later.

For soon, you grow old, loose everything that which is out of your control.

So don’t boast or be unruly. Do not sell yourself too cheaply,

In any case, do not prejudge but go bravely without blame, shame, or complaint.

Be always alert to follow the mantra of doing no harm and doing your best.

In this manner, one is being well armed in life to live well in any situation.

Stress Tip list? Write things down so I do not harm my mind with things to stress about tonight. I have managed my Xmas shopping and then some. I brought all my gifts ready for Don, and I have a few gift card holders for last minute possibilities.

I gassed up in case or when it snows. I am thinking the worst and hoping for a short week. The forecast seems bad till the holidays weekend: Arctic front.

I am working on stress management. I research ,read and blog about it.

I believe I can create a better way to live this way. A good life requires that I do the things I need and want to do to have a work/play balance. And I must maintain my boundaries while I do this each day. I need rituals and routines and practices. To engage my life, I need people, places and things. You can fill in the blank for yourself and others you choose or need to live with each day.

So often, I feel better after getting through the work and play each day. Then I rest and relax and get ready for another day.

‘Crazy Little Thing Called Love‘

Imagine what a concept like love was contained, used in the proper manner, and given a high priority when you become willing to act more out of the kind kind of wisdom love really is.

Wisdom is thinking or contemplating love on the day to day ways.

Queen sang that song, I had to Google it. The song meant a lot to me when I was teenager.

It means more to me because my thinking has changed in the last few year.

Now think about dying and living a little each day. About dying more some days and living more on others. Do you think love will help or hurt those outcomes?

It is a challenge for people to convince themselves about this crazy little notion.

I’m glad to get all the help I can.

Zeus Says….

He says, “It took me millions and millions of years to design and build the human body.”

“So, it is up to you to use them wisely, and I would like to pass on a user’s manual, if one of you might want to write this down.”

“By all means, gather and hunt and connect with nature, drink only water and be sure to fast many times in morning and more often when you feel sick or have eaten too much.”

“Look after your whole body which includes the whole planet, stars and space/time.”

“Study everything or be a lifelong learner.”

“And do the basics always: sleep, exercise and be careful with this one life.”

“Remember to do your best and do no harm.”

Hiking

Connect to the outdoors, nature, the organic side, a balance between technology and human nature.

What is natural or wild about visiting the planet?

Touching the space we were born to live and do our day to day living in as a species on Terra Fermi, the ground in my case.

That’s not to say air and sea are out of the question.

In my case, a park, in winter, the cold is a touch of wild.

Seeing geese and other wild creatures, a homo sapient, out for a brisk jog with his dog. Perhaps not that wild on the surface.

Dig deeper, struggle hard to see when you are gathering food from the ground in the cold hard winter….

Being able to go beyond mere survival is a gift, as is Mother Nature, I don’t want to loose either one….
