Some Say Contrary, Others Complimentary

The blog above is about optimistic philosophy and a way of being that reflects optimism.

However, the Dalai Lama says it quite plainly, “I say to people that I’m not an optimist because that, in a sense, is something that depends on feelings more than actual reality. We feel optimistic, or we feel pessimistic.

I believe what the Dalai Lama is saying above. But I love philosophy and life. The rationalist in me is learning to learn and learning to live. Perhaps, I have room for a little more feelings like optimism and pessimism.

Happy Blogging.

Know Thyself: cultivating a western perspective

Ah, the ancient Greeks somehow managed to cultivate a way to use this difficult method.

To recognize awareness and stay within reality and find a healthy lifestyle.

Reality is complex and changes and reflects who and what we are and might become.

To live with moderation and good health requires help from society, friends and family.

But we need tools to help us ‘know thyself’.

Good habits like meditation, journaling, blogging, energy flow, sleeping, eating, music and exercise.

But reality can be harsh, our wisdom and experience can help us along our way.
