Cicero believes it is laughable to entertain anything beyond the physical Universe. He says as much by defining terms. Your soul dies, or returns to the Devine. Either way the self dies. It simply does not matter, pardon the pun. The point is that he takes on death directly and says it is unimportant and nothing to fear.
Cicero’s way is a philosophy to keep stoic ways flexible and to allow death and dying to remain the same philosophically in today’s culture.
Can you control death?
Should you fear it?
My advice is to sit with your fear until you recognize there is no reason to fear death and dying and to wait long enough to be free of acting in any way that may harm you or others. It is worth learning to work out any impulsive urges you may have to harm yourself or others. My job is to do all the above. It isn’t something you can set a time limit on or should procrastinate on.
I personally try to work on it a little each day. So, serious enough? Practical?
(Note, the above ideas are my own, and if you interpret them in a way that harms you or someone else, it is out of my hands, at best I give them a PG rating or worst, a R.)
I am following Joseph Campbell.
He has written a rather important work, which is a huge understatement.

Do you care about getting more light in the morning?
I think it is safer to move around in the light.
Some like to consider the practice as a practical way to save resources making it light.
I am a big believer in improving the lifestyle we all have in our day to day affairs.
It costs us individually when we change sleep in the fall, but we gain it back in the spring.
Unfortunately, we all tend to argue and all tend to dwell on the negative or cons of the experience.
I like to practice making others aware when they are willing.
I like to prepare each change. If you are interested there is an article called “How to Prepare for the Start and End of Daylight Saving Time”
Nobody enjoys, phone or email scams, the problem is the prevalence of scams in all forms of multimedia.

All the changes are staggering when reaching for a balance when recovering from poor lifestyle choices.
A sugar metabolism is not worth doing for people who want their bodies to find a healthier balance.
But for many a low carb therefore sugar free and keto nutrition will result in a need to eat more low carb veggies.
And less fruit with more nuts and berries.
More olive oil and vinegar with salads and veggies.
No starches or much less and more salt and water to cope with all the water lose due to less sugar trapped in muscles with water.
Less trouble with salt because of less trouble with sugar metabolism.
Intermittent fasting from a two meal a day limit.
So many symptoms of a poor lifestyle disappear but during a change in metabolism there will be frequent urination as sugar leaves your body.
A need for more water and salt due to replace lost water and salt from frequent urination.
No more constipation.
Lower blood pressure due to better lifestyle.
Less inflammation due to better lifestyle.
Keep looking for good habits as better lifestyle stabilizes with healthier routines.
Changing habit include, no sweets, no alcohol, no starches, no smoking or recreation drugs will help blood flow and vascular health.
Less insulin’s spiking due to keto nutrition to move off sugar metabolism to keto metabolism.
Weight will stabilize as will water, salt and other vitamins and minerals.
Body will find its best balance for long run or longer life expectancy and quality of life.
There is some meat, cheese, chicken, sea food needed to keep a ketogenic metabolism and intermittent two meal routine.
Lots of movement, walking and standing with learning and working to improve overall socializing and development of relationships.
Along the way this wholistic approach to living becomes a life of better habits.
This is a description of the changes needed to find a healthy balance with the human body.
