I‘m behind, but Stoics recognize struggle as necessary and strife as unavoidable. So does Existentialism. And Reflecting on what I read in Braiding Sweetgrass and This Life I consider them also sources to honor the growth of internal conflicts in learning who we are and how we become. #tarottakeover

ErinSueMreads Braiding sweet grass is one of my all time favorite books. I think everyone should read it 2mo
Chrissyreadit @ErinSueMreads I completely agree. 2mo

The book brings daily doses of #Stoic #philosophy to our daily life through what we may call mindfulness exercises. This practice can be enhanced by reading it together with the journal, in which we can find questions for self reflection.
It is quite amazing how Stoic ideas are suited to modern life and much needed actually!

👁‍🗨 FOR WHOM? People that like timeless wisdom and search for a more balanced life through self awareness and discipline.

Very informative, but dry. Does not speak much of application of Stoicism to modern society-
one quote references “spending too much time emptying one‘s bowels” along with too much drinking or copulating.

Also many essentially state, “if someone disagrees with you, who cares they‘ll be dead soon”
This is meant for you to ponder the expanse of time, and seek only you own validation. I did not find it inspiring.

Structure of the book was good.

…I don‘t think I could have ended up with 2 more opposite books than these two 🙈

Both audiobooks that have been in my library forever. We‘ll see if they should have stayed there…

Thanks @PuddleJumper ! 🥳

PuddleJumper That is quite the contrast! 5mo
tokorowilliamwallace This means they should inform each other well, and make for some unique gleaned perspective, on your part! Looking forward to your comments on the book on Stoicism. I was recommended the school/methodology of philosophy from a girl I highly respected and who was on point in her understanding of me and her other recommendation for me in the Polish poetess, Wislawa Szymborska. Apt and very sentimentally impactful at the time---serendipitous timing. 5mo
5feet.of.fury @tokorowilliamwallace I‘m starting it today, so we shall see. I recommend Ryan Holiday‘s books if you are looking for material on stoicism in general! I read Obstacle is the Way last year and it was very informative but easily digestible. 5mo

Scochrane26 I stopped wearing earrings sometime but in college, about 25 years ago. 7mo
Chrissyreadit @Bookzombie I LOVE earrings- but I was working with kids with behavior problems and toddlers- so I was always forgetting to put them back in, then I got sick on top of it and years later realized I miss wearing my earrings! So I highly recommend Re piercing ❤️ 7mo
Chrissyreadit @Scochrane26 🤣🤣🤣 7mo

Daily philosophical advise for life that I lost interest in. I guess I‘m not Stoic.

The Obstacle is the Way. Valuable lesson I really needed today since is everything is so hard and I don‘t feel like being an adult human.
