29198Writting is a wonderful thing, it’s the materalization of speech, speech is what god used to create the earth and all the living things in it, so speech is good. Writting crystalizes the thoughts that we have in our heads and sets order in the constant chaotic flux of ideas that inhabit our heads.

Everyday, I try to write in the mornings for 10 minutes and then start my day. It’s free writting, I can talk really about anything and am not constricted by anything, but today, today I lost all of my pens so I’m doing it right here, hey that is what a blog is for isn’t it, just for the world to see your thoughts.

A blog, if personal, is very intimate. Not a lot of readers come to read anyone’s blog and that is magical. Why do some persons feel attracted to other persons? what do we see hear or read in each other that makes us feel attracted towards them?

I believe we see ourselves in others, all the time. For the better and for the worst, you see, we do not really know anyone as well as we know ourselves and what we do is that we project what we like and what we don’t like of us in others.

Interesting thought isn’t it? I simply love that way of seeing, because it is practical. Do you remember the saying? “The best revenge is not being as the one that injured you”? Well it is precisely this, if we see something bad in someone, or worst, someone did something bad to us, that is a chance to go inside ourselves and see what needs to get some work done, it puts light in our own problems and mishandlings, and that way we can begin to fix them. We do not become what we hate , and that truly is the best revenge.

10 minutes are over, I’ll put this on the category of shot morning writtings. I appreciate the time you took to read this and wish you a terrific day friend.

Good Morning!

Rule over yourself


No Comments

Why, exactly, would you have to rule over yourself? tumblr_neyqf51MMC1qmbg8bo1_500

A king decides what happens in the kingdom and what not, he is adviced often, but the ultimate word is his, our inner world works much like this, much more like a kingdom than a united entity.

Stoicism aims for control over ourselves, control over emotions, desires and actions. We do not aim to supress this altogether, but we aim to manage it, to rule it and this is why we rule over ourselves.

I find this approach the more practical.

If we are to “rule over ourselves” we must use the phrase apporpriatley. When we say “control yourself” all the weight and magnificence of your inner power is diminished. “Ruling over ourselves” gives the phrase back his magnificence and royalty.

Try to imagine yourself as an ancient realm, an ancient realm of magnificent power, a Witan_hexateuch.jpgtrue empire. The realm is composed of your consciousness, the great king. Every king has a courtwhich gives advice to the king. The court of course is very useful, kings, as presidents and leaders today, do not take action or decisions of his own accord, they most listen to the expereinced court, or gabinet that will help them better the empire or realm. Every emotion is part of your court,  they advise you as to what is better for the realm. Every member of the court has to be properly addressed, fear, sadness, joy, curiosity, every one of them is valuable as in they have something to communicate to the king about its kingdom.

When the king wants to be good and great all the time or just wants to hear good news, the kingdom can suffer. If there is a war going on and the king cannot make calls or lets fear rule instead of him or madness or greediness, the empire will soon be lost to his inability to rule, everything most be assesed by the king as he has final word.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

what does ruling over onself really mean. i believe it has to do with control, to be the ruler is to be skeptic about our reactions, mostly impulsive behavior.
