Accept... Do whatever is in my power... let go...

Post by Jester »


Most exhort us to visualize and expect a bright future; this heightens the disillusionment when things turn out badly...a few philosophies emphasize visualizing the worst case scenarios; while this may immunize us to bad outcomes, it calls for a rather gloomy outlook...I visualize nothing, accept reality as it comes and do whatever is in my power to make things better, then let go, let go and relax..........
From Upendra de Silva, from Sri Lanka

I like stoicism to be honest
Stop being angry at the stuff you don't have (yet) in life and instead focus on how to get it.
