#stoicism

🇵🇭🌐🇺🇸
If you look hard enough, and open your mind to everything that had to occur both directly and indirectly for what's in this (or any) photo, (or moment) you'll have a micro-peek into life and its grand system of intertwined cause and effect that's just incredibly humbling and downright amazing to consider.

Yeah, on the surface there's fruit; table mats, a table cloth and a table, but there's also a running short film with quick cuts and inserts of soil, molecular interactions of hydrogen and oxygen influencing germinating seeds, and sprouting buds. There are bamboo stalks being cut and assembled into mats by foreign hands. There's that department store receiving the pallet with this table under twenty five more cardboard encased models. We'll fast forward through the butterfly effect sequences and close with me gratefully receiving my dad's fall #dragonfruit harvest from my visit to my parents this weekend, to me getting home to set up and take this photo. ⚪
There are so many things to appreciate when you consider what makes a moment; the things that transpired (and couldn't) to put you right where you are right now. The good times, and the bad times both have their place. Keep your heart and your mind open next time you come across fruit on a table 😊

"I will not follow where the path may lead, but I will go where there is no path, and I will leave a trail.

Infinitely will I trust nature’s instincts and promptings, but I will not call my own perversions nature.

Each receives but that which is his own returning.
Each hears but that which is the echo of his own call.
Each feels but that which has eaten into his own heart.

I do not bemoan misfortune. To me there is no misfortune. I welcome whatever comes; I go out gladly to meet it.

It is no stigma to wear rags; the disgrace is in continuing to wear them"
- Muriel Strode, “Wind-Wafted Wild Flowers”, August 1903

🏺Is deep, meaningful discussion on the decline because of smartphones and social media? Or were previous generations equally disinclined to deep discussion?

It is painful indeed. Yet somehow we love to inflict ourselves this kind of pain: Kierkegaard my love ❤️

Single arm cable tricep pull downs are probably my favorite way to finish this muscle group off most workouts. Even though it was last night, I'm ready for another one as we speak. That's the beauty of fitness. Once you get past the self doubt, stay focused and start to see results, it really does become a beautiful obsession. Have a phenomenal day everyone! @rich_thayer

Pursue experiences, good people, and worthy items. Look for things that add value.

Hay una razón por la cual visitar Grecia fue increíble para mi, "El estoicismo", una corriente a la cual estoy enganchada desde hace un tiempo, ya que concuerdo de muchas maneras en el modo en que ve la vida.
La corriente filosófica del estoicismo surgió en Atenas en torno al año 300 a.C. y Proclamaba que se puede alcanzar la libertad y la tranquilidad siendo ajeno a las comodidades materiales y dedicándose a una vida guiada por la razón y la virtud.

Séneca, un estoico de su tiempo dijo: "No hay nadie menos afortunado que el hombre a quien la adversidad olvida, pues no tiene oportunidad de ponerse a prueba." Hoy mi país está a prueba, hoy México necesita de personas estoicas para salir adelante, les recomiendo leer acerca de esta corriente filosófica, en estos tiempos a todos nos vendría muy bien aplicarla. •

“You have the power over your mind - not outside events. Realize this and you will find strength.” -Marcus Aurelius⚒⚒⚒

Have you ever thought about the fact that we have a computer in our pockets?
.
The smartphone can be such a powerful tool...
.
But it can also be very destructive.
.
The same goes for our minds.
.
In the quote above, Marcus reminds us that WE ARE NOT THE TOOL, but instead...
.
WE ARE THE CRAFTSMEN IN CHARGE.
.
Use your tools wisely today!

We all have faults, instead of pointing fingers, why don’t we all start working on sinning a little less and see what kind of change can happen 😁 #findhappydaily #smileon #smile #happiness #gratitude #joy #bethechange #inspire #inspirationalquotes #motivation #timferriss #tonyrobbins #seneca #stoicism

First piece of wall art to go up in the apartment. I was gifted this frame from one of my clients nearly 4 years ago. Of all the places I've moved to since then, this message has remained a constant both on my walls and in the way I chose to show up in the world.
