Practical Stoicism

Beware your passion or use a little common sense when you act on the following convictions.

Use a page worth on each journal entry.

The idea is to think about what you may want to practice.

Get up! Or get at it. Do it. Be here and do it now.

It is all about character and virtue or doing it right.

Epictetus, Discourses 1.2

Of one thing beware, O man: see what is the price at which you sell your will. If you do nothing else, do not sell your will cheap.

Work on your virtues or character. What do you value. What is important to you?

Assess the way you do your life. Think about your own stuff.

But it is a right.

What Are You Trying To Do….?

There is no substitute for good ideals like compassion, and courage and the pursuit of truth and contemplation.

The meaning of life is not a secret.

These ideals will make you more alive.

Some will want to pursue a system too abstract or too ideal.

This system is called contemplation of the self.

But these ideals can be corrupted by counterfeiting and end up harming yourself and others.

So why bother at all?

It is good , during formal education to think about and ‘try on’ ideal to live a good life.

At best you will be happy!

At worst, you will get on with your life.

To study a way of being like this one may be a good decision, but only you can decide.

It is a way that is tried and true, given the work involved it may be no simple task.

From my experience, being grounded with purpose is one angle but there are many benefits to putting these principles into practice.

A philosophical approach to good living may be an understatement…

I Am A World Leader

Everyone is finding some kind of footing from this experience with COVID-19.

Most of us are happy to get a jab and are working to get our second jab ASAP.

Some of us are pulling double shifts at work and struggling to keep in touch with family and friends.

A lot of us are striving to find better ways to learn from this experience and get back to normal.

There is so many obstacles that make the restrictions hard to follow: transportation, communication, supplies, economics and more.

Putting my best foot forward, I am reaching out to my team to look after themselves and their families.

I know it’s tough to even get a good night’s sleep.

But countries like Denmark, New Zealand, and Germany are working hard to protect their boarders.

And many East Asian countries are using other effective methods , just look at Taiwan, South Korea.

New Zealand is so mobilized with their campaign against COVID.

China and Russia have been just as successful as the west at producing and distributing vaccines.

And yes there is much more to do as the G7 finishes the weekend meeting that will help with future plans.

We all need to get vaccinated and clean up before we can open up the system for business.

That is what I am going to help get done for the fall of this year.

I for one appreciate all your hard work!

Why Are The Bees Dying?

The most provocative vid I could find on the subject is sparking my imagination.

It seems likely we are responsible to some degree or another.

If that is even remotely true, we must go out into nature and try to emerge our talented ways.

Perhaps, connecting with nature will help us in other ways: health, education, respect and an ongoing improved relationship with the planet.

Seriously, lets try and learn more about bees and what is going on in the world.
