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.

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

Any government can have citizenship.

Do your best.

Think.

Proper use of impressions.

Wisdom Is Thinking About Love

Do no harm to each other, because needless pain creates needless suffering and who needs it.

Use the proper use of impressions in your life, and that will make it good.

A wise man once said, “Beauty is truth, truth beauty—that is all he know on earth, and all he need to know.”—Ode on a Grecian Urn by John Keats

To love love this deep means you need to think about it. Be philosophical about it-think about love, this will help you renew your purpose in life and live a good one.

Share deeply with those you love, these are the people you need to love forever.

Too Many Bumps Or Mood Swings

I’d call any kind of emotional outburst (negative emotions) a mood swing or a bump.

With Corona, I generally get more bumps than usual.

I have made it a practice to take a mood swing or pump moment to calm down and take stalk of my state of mind.

Mental health is just as important as physical health.

Having faith in myself and others is part of my day to day well being.

When I take responsibility for an emotional or mental health problem, I am taking care of myself to do no harm.

I call it buckling in to corona. And I need help and give help to my friends, family and co-workers.

See you in the new normal!

Doing, when it matters most

Be mindful now!

There are many people or peoples that reflect the above image or practice.

Does the message kill the practice or is it the messenger?
