Reflections, Stoic advise

Fate, either go with it, or be pulled by it


“Fate leads the willing and carries the unwilling”

Seneca

Have you ever been in a situation, maybe a messy situation in your love life or in general, where you feel like you’ve been there before? Have you ever felt that you fall in a trap again and again and you notice it once its too late? I certainly wish for that you do to not be the only one.

It’s hard to think when you are in those types of situations but, my friend, that is when you need to think the most. Fate is the master teacher, fate teaches us the core lessons in life, they can be pretty or they can be real fucking nightmares but nevertheless, lessons they are.

So, we stumble into situations that we know, we know deep down that something need to be learned. What to do next, is the stoic suggestion. universe-explosion-star-flowers.jpg

Whenever we feel fate is teaching us something again, we have to really get to the bottom of it, because if we don’t we are going to face the same situation again, with a different person and a different place, but just the same.

Stoicism can be seen sometimes as a cow standing in the rain, just enduring it, stoicly. This is quite comical, but that would not be a stoic mindset, better to build a house or something within our control to stop gettin wet and in the cold, that is a stoic mindset, and with this quick analogy in our mind we can now begin to think better, to think stoicly.

So, same situation, again. It sucks, so what is there to do about it. We can:

  • do nothing about it and cry
  • pretend that nothing is happening and acting normal
  • blame everyone but ourselves for what is happening
  • ask logos why, why always us

or..

We can get our game face on, embrace chaos and challenge get our swords out, and better whatever is to be bettered, which most of the time, is ourselves.

We don’t learn lessons because we are not conscious enough, we are not fully awake to our sorroundings and we don’t want to embrace change.

Change is hard, change is difficult and personal. monk praying cave

Change is personal, everytime we feel we are in the same place again, we are having a personal lessson, no one but ourselves are responsible for the learning, and this lessons gives us the opportunity to know ourselves better. Fate gives us the opportunity to create a relationship personally with ourselves.

This is how you find jewels in darkness, when we choose not to accept fate, we cannot learn, it is just simply impossible, but when we do, we learn and go deeper into ourselves, our roots go deep into our consciousness and a new level of living starts.

My friend, never, ever choose to play the blind man when something happens.

Adress it, embrace fate, learn more and dig deeper into yourself.

I hope more and more of us choose to accept life, and share it.

Thank you for reading
