Stoicism The Art of Acceptance

What can this ancient form of wisdom teach contemporary people about their place in their world and all the modern ordeals we inevitably encounter?

The great Stoic Philosophers regarded man as a part of a larger whole. To reach true enlightenment people must surrender themselves to the same natural law which governs plants and animals. Whereas animals are compelled to action by instinct alone, human beings are unique in that they can utilise their faculties of reason and judgement.

True happiness is found in the art of acceptance, accepting all that is beyond our ability to change (such as race, gender, height and other bodily endowments); however it was widely accepted that there are aspects of our lives which we can readily change–our social circle, our general lifestyle habits etc. Continue reading

The Movie Limitless has Wisdom

This article contains many spoilers about Limitless. See the movie first, then come back to this article.

Limitless, starring Bradley Copper and Robert DeNiro is one of the best self-help movies ever to hit the movie theaters. In fact, I call it ‘the best non-James Bond movie, that shows you how to live the James Bond Lifestyle. Let’s take a look at it.

Our hero Eddie gets access to 100% of his brain by using a smart pill called NZT. He tells us via narration, “Everything I’d ever read, seen and heard was now organized and available.”

Us in the real world can’t access that much brain power, but with Google Search, smart phones and some clarity of mind on our part, we can have tons of information ready to use, if only we make the decision to do so.

Best Binaural Beats Meditation Programs Review

Binaural beats meditation takes your brain almost instantly to a meditative state which would otherwise take years of practice to reach.

It’s as simple as putting on your headphones, pressing play on your MP3 player and letting the binaural beats work their magic.

On their own, binaural beats are not pleasant to listen to – a tone is played into one ear and a slightly different tone into the other. A bit like listening a a keyboard being constantly clicked.

This means that almost all binaural beats meditation programs disguise the tones with either music or natural sounds (often rainfall).

Because the process is so powerful, most binaural beats meditation programs have a number of tracks that take you into a progressively deeper meditative state. You play each track for a set number of days before moving on to the next, deeper, level.
