Stoicism - Understanding and Practicing the Philosophy of the Stoics
"It is the power of the mind to be unconquerable."
― Seneca, The Stoic Philosophy of Seneca: Essays and Letters
What does it mean to be "unconquerable?"
Becoming unconquerable has nothing to do with forming an army or strengthening your muscles. In fact, it has nothing to do with anything physical at all. It's about changing how you view the world and your part in it.
You become unconquerable when you learn how to deal with the curveballs of life. How do you find joy in your darkest hour? How do you feel rich when you have nothing? The answers are in these pages.
You won't find these teachings in today's schools, but this is exactly what the ancient philosophers were teaching. Events outside of your control should have no impact on your joy, happiness, peace, or confidence. If these things are going to happen anyway, why not turn them into positive events?
Instead of always being the victim, turn yourself into the victor. All it takes is a shift in perspective, and that's what Stoicism is all about.
The timeless wisdom of the Stoics can help anyone find inner peace and joy and 'Stoicism - Understanding and Practicing the Philosophy of the Stoics' is the perfect starting point.
Stoicism - Purpose and Perspectives
We live in a fast-paced world that has come to characterize the twenty-first century. We are bombarded with constant distractions, and silence has all but vanished from our daily schedule and practice. We are collectively exhausted, but we don't really realize it. The exhaustion manifests in sicknesses we can't identify, and if we can, it's something we can't pronounce. We batter ourselves against the daily onslaught that has become our lives.
We all need a break, and we all need answers on how to stop this fast-moving wreck in motion. The answer it turns out has been in front of us all along and within us even longer. The Stoics figured it out two and a half millennia ago and practiced it with great results. Maybe it can help us now too.
Stoicism has two aspects--the theory and the academics of it, and wanting to read the texts that fall into that category is a good thing, but this is not that. This book is about how one practices Stoicism in their daily life here and now. It is for this century, this decade.
Is the solution here? No. The solution is within each of us. What you will find here, though, is the way to extract the solution that is already within you. It's as simple as that.
