History is full of wisdom
As I began my journey through philosophy and psychology, I could not believe that all these thinkers of the past could help me so much. This is how History teaches us wisdom from all over the world, through some quick examples like quotes.
All these thoughts have helped me to better understand my inner part and thus to feel better in my life and gain wisdom, still thousands of years after them.
Yes, the study of the soul began long ago, has come to our recent days and probably will never stop. The discovery of the inner part of us is a deep and vast search.
Four great souls to discover
I always think of a nice quote from the great philosopher Aristotle of ancient Greece:
“To love is to rejoice, while we believe to rejoice only if we are loved.”
Significant, huh? I had to translate it myself, because I couldn’t find this quote in English!
When I do coaching, I remind my clients of the importance of chaos in us. It’s what allows for inner growth: it’s a sign that our real situations no longer satisfy us and we need something different.
In that light, fighting is not only a bad verb, but also the chance to have better opportunities coming, if we know how to handle them!
“One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star.”
Shakespeare is another thinker I love, one of those who can easily see behind the veil of Maya and see things from other perspectives. One quote I really like is:
“There are three people in yourself – who people think you are, who you think you are, and who you really are.”
And there are many other thinkers and quotations that have literally changed my mind and my point of view: if you want we can explore them all together. Here is this little bite on how history teaches us wisdom.
We conclude this post with a recent genius, a very spiritual person, even more than scientific.
