#stoicism

In ancient Greece, Socrates was reputed to hold knowledge in high esteem. One day an acquaintance came to meet the great philosopher and said, “Do you know what I just heard about your friend?” Socrates immediately stopped him saying “Hold on a minute”. “Before you talk to me about my friend, it might be good idea to take a moment and filter what you’re going to say. That’s why I call it the Socrates Triple Filter Test. The first filter is Truth. Have you made absolutely sure that what you are about to tell me is true?” “Well, no,” the man said, “actually I just heard about it and…” “Oh! I see” said Socrates. “So you don’t really know if it’s true or not. Now, let’s try the second filter, the filter of Goodness. Is what you are about to tell me about my friend something good?” “Umm, no, on the contrary…” “So,” Socrates continued, “you want to tell me something bad about my friend, but you’re not certain it’s true. You may still pass the test though, because there’s one filter left—the filter of Usefulness. Is what you want to tell me about my friend going to be useful to me?” “No, not really.” “Well,” concluded Socrates, “If what you want to tell me is neither true, nor good, nor even useful, why tell it to me at all?” #purposefocuscommitment #story

Give up your expectations of how things should be and just experience them. Suffering is always inevitable if we can't let go of our expectations. @selfempoweredlife

“ We should not blame others for their failure to focus on who we are. “ They may want to meet us, but we should accept the energy with which they will keep the topic of their own lives at the centre of the conversation.

Negative or unwanted feelings are usually a result of our thoughts not the situation.

All too often, we focus our attention on what's happening outside of us. It's easy enough to do because it's in the physical realm. We may want to change things that are happening outside of us by... springing into action. That only creates more discontent, more of what we don't want.

Instead, we need to turn our attention to what's happening on the inside. We create our physical reality from within.
If something on the outside world is causing you strife, worry, or more of what "you don't want"... turn inside, examine, reflect... get in touch with your truth and get clear on what you want. Move forward with that energy which should make you feel excited and also peaceful and powerful.
Create your life from your heart! I'm living this lesson today by saying good bye to old work that no longer serves me and making space for the new.

PS the name of this font is belligerent madness, kinda appropriate.

I'm either a light year of thoughts away from an ego trap or it's already knocking at my back door. Ready to lie,hate, and judge.
I'm grateful for the wisdom to know who my ego is and where those emotions derive from. Loving and controlling that part of my Self allows me to grant compassion for those who can't. So I will continue healing myself so I may be more for the universe. My heart is full this morning. #selflove #selfcare #selfworth #stoicism #manifest #ego #newmoonmagic #newmoon #didyoureadyourhoroscopetoday #twinflame #transformative #mantra #loveishere #bereal

I read many books this year but these are the most life changing books I’ve read in 2017. I’m still working on the compleat Magick collection 😂. Those will be a lifelong study! I highly recommend the two books by @brooks_kubik if you want to get in rock hard physical shape. You can buy them at www.dinosaurtraining.com The Daily Stoic is jam packed full of wisdom and can be bought off Amazon. I won’t reveal where to buy the Magick collection ;) A very busy December is upon me so probably won’t have time to read much else before the end of 2017. #Mindreader #books #magick #secrets #mentalist #strengthtraining #dinosaurtraining #ketogenicdiet #stoicism

Let’s practice and pretend that each event—whether desired or unexpected—was willed to happen, willed specifically for you. You wouldn’t fight that, would you?

We made it to the famous and fabulous @cafegratitude and it was incredible. What a lovely concept. The question of the day was: What inspires you? My thoughts were the world around us...the colours of nature and the peaceful unwavering demeanour the natural world has. I think we can all learn a lot from observing nature: stoicism, wonder, transience and acceptance.

The supposed responsibilities of life can overwhelm you and as a result you drudge through the days forgetting what you truly want to do. Every famous person you look up to has the same amount of time in every day as you, choose your focus leverage your strengths, and achieve the greatness you’re capable of.
