Where is Good? In our reasoned choices. Where is Evil? In our reasoned choices. Where is that which is neither Good nor Evil? In the things outside of our own reasoned choice.” – Epictetus, Discourses, 2.16.1Continue reading “Patterns of Thinking”
There is a discovery of who you are in life. However, this process takes knowledge, understanding, and wisdom to go beyond what lies behind you or what lies in front of you. You need to go within to find this truth.Continue reading “Discovering Who You Are in Life”
Just as a seed is planted into the ground, it is dormant only in the shell. Who amongst know what was planted? The seed looks just like other seeds, small though there is a color or shape to it. The planter can know… Amongst are many other seeds that are planted with it to ensure the possibility of growth by the lucky seeds that surface through the soil joining above. When it joins above ground, it shares its unique qualities to life.Continue reading “Finding Ourselves”
In our history, we need to remember the important continuation of tradition. Tradition is timeless and continues to this day. Not many know some of the traditions that were throughout the course in history. Though there are traditions that comes from a span of more than a thousand years. Hidden in folklore, culture, heritage, and ancient books from the history of the past. There are those who can discover the truth within our ancient history. Pierre de Coubertin, founder of the International Olympic Committee (I.O.C.) renewed a piece of tradition in our history. It is the Ancient Olympic Games.Continue reading “The Olympics Traditional and Modern Times”
While in the clouds of uncertainty, it can be difficult to find direction. With the clouds heavy on the shoulders of the mind, it seems wherever you go there are clouds.

To be honest, the preference of an ordered life is much better than of chaos. However if living in only one side of the story, how can we see the other?
Remembering from high school physics class, energy has steps from still to moving. There is the potential energy and kinetic energy describing the stillness to movement. The two have a relationship with each other. If there is an increase to potential energy, there is an increase to kinetic energy. This also goes with decrease vice versa. However, if there is none, than there is none. Each of us have a potential within us. However, potential begins small and increases in size, energy, and power in the amount of time and effort put into it. There is no point in releasing energy if there is a minute amount of energy as it may never traverse from point A to B.
Would a book with only a cover be a book at all? This is an insane notion. How could a book be a book without pages. Only a title on the cover page doesn’t make it at all. It won’t even fancy as a paper weight if so. I wouldn’t know what to call it. Lets not forget about the other parts like the the bindings, graphics, the print, and countless hours of time and effort put into making a well-made book. Creating a book might seem obvious as describing what it encompasses. Yet, just as the process of creating a book, creating a better person needs the step by step process toward excellence.
