There is something to finding the first or the source.

It is important to become familiar with a philosophy or philosopher to know more about it or to become one.

This may sound dry, but instruction is a form of study. So is guide or teacher.

To devote ones life to philosophy may not seem purposeful or meaningful.

But none of this is meant to be literal.

‘Know thyself’ may be succinct.

A different tact is to study the subject and teacher to better understand and apply the ideas.

But there is more to the topic than meets the eye.

Please check out the article above.

Good People Are Always Happy

First, read and write, research and study…

If you need one book, “CICERO: On the Good life”.

Put all your inclination to be known into living simply, compassionately and patiently.

There is much aversion here, how can one love a life of contemplation?

Especially, the job of taking care of oneself, who will be the teacher and the student?

If you need wealth, let it be books, journaling, writing, reading, researching and study: to learn to read and write.

Not for their own sake, but for yours: do no harm to yourself or others.

This aversion is the starting point, the here and now of being spiritually alive.

Take your spiritual job and make it your own: call it by a name.

To take care in this manner requires a great deal of help.

Teachers will come out of the woodwork.

You will find many resources.

Your time and energy will be repaid a thousand fold.

Translated with an introduction by Michael Grant.

A great read, ready for application by those willing and able.

Keep Calm And Carry On: COVID-19

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keep_Calm_and_Carry_On

It seems the British used this in 1939 for motivation during the war effort.

‘Seems’ likely that we borrowed the slogan for motivation during COVID-19.

Please continue to support the effort.
