We need to practice

We don’t become virtuous by reading Epictetus or Seneca, We need to practice – Massimo Pigliucci

Practice, Practice, Practice that’s all we’re doing, all day every day,

The question is what are you practising?

Are you practising what you said you would or are you practising talking or quitting…

Talking about how you’re going to do this and how your going to do that Or quitting this because it didn’t work the first time

Jerry Seinfeld was booed off stage the first time he performed, did he quit… no, He practised

Each Change A Death

Each Change A Death – Marcus Aurelius

Each change brings about chaos from our normal world, Chaos of the unknown, Chaos of discomfort and Pain,

Each time we descend into this unknown world, We die a little,

We die a death…

A death of our old self.

A death of the way we used to do things

But life is ever-changing so we are forever dieing

& If you’re not adapting you will forever live in a world of Chaos.

‘If you’re not growing – Your dying’ – Tony Robbins

As the same fire assumes different shapes when it consumes objects differing in shape, so does oneself take the shape of every creature in whom he is present

Oneself take the shape of every creator in whom he is present… Look around your office, Your social circle, Your family… Now look at yourself, Do you resemble them?

Maybe not at first look… But dig deeper… Your thoughts, Your actions, Your mood… They converse about tv shows, talk about their anxiety… How they can’t be bothered, Continue reading “As the same fire assumes different shapes when it consumes objects differing in shape, so does oneself take the shape of every creature in whom he is present”

How long are you going to wait

How long are you going to wait before you demand the best for yourself? – Epictetus⠀

An interesting observation I’ve made in myself and others -⠀

We are quick to offer advice to our family and friends, Even go as far as getting annoyed with them if they don’t follow our judgments.⠀

Because we want the best for them, We know that they could do better and make better choices…⠀

Change is slow and gradual. It requires hard work, a bit of luck, a fair amount of self-sacrifice, and a lot of patience. Robert Greene

Life is a sacrifice, every choice we make we have to leave something behind…

The Buddhist believe life is Dukkha – Which means pain

Life is pain and suffering with sacrifice.

If your on a diet you miss the freedom of eating what you want and when you want, you suffer through exercise and hard work, On the other end of the spectrum, if you’re lazy you suffer through being lethargic, you will suffer through eating what you what and doing the bare minimum.
