Sang – Froid!


Hi there!


Stoicism comes from the Greek word stoa,
meaning porch.

It is a school of philosophy that developed during the
Hellenistic Civilisation, in the 3rd century BCE.

Stoicism was founded in Athens, by Zeno of Citium
in modern Cyprus
( c. 344 BCE  –  c. 262 BCE ), and
very popular during the Roman Empire.
Zeno used to teach his philosophy at the Stoa Poikile

on the north side of the ancient Agora in Athens.

Zeno’s beliefs were influenced by an ancient Greek
philosophy that flourished during the 6th and 5th
centuries BCE,
called Cynicism, and whose teachings
were all about
living in virtue.

Stoicism is considered a way of life.
It teaches us to develop strength of mind and self
control in order to be able to overcome and conquer
our hurtful and destructive emotions.

It also teaches us to use common sense and judgement,
to be bold and brave, to be honest and fair, to be reserved
and self-restrained.

By using logic and intelligence we can understand
and accept the present moment.
The ultimate goal of stoicism is Inner Peace;
this is a lot similar to the teachings of Siddhartha
Gautama, the founder of Buddhism.

It is to lead a happy life and keep on growing mentally.

Presence Of Mind


Our modern every day life is full of stress, confusion
and negativity.
As a consequence, finding inner peace is so difficult
and exhausting, as trying very hard to find a hiding
place to protect yourself from evil.

If you want to improve,

1)    Your mental health.
2)    Your physical health.
3)    Your total well-being.
4)    Your self-confidence.
5)    Your creativity.
6)    Your productivity.
7)    Your connection with your relationships.
8)    Your whole life experience.


Adopt the following principles:


a)     Recognise that all your emotions are created only
by yourself    and not by any external force.
So, discipline your mind, and keep your thoughts and
attitudes under
complete control.

b)     Realise that there are many things in life you have 
no control over.
So, decide to accept this truth, and stop struggling and wasting
your energy;    as well as being concerned
 and worried about
all circumstances you can not change.

Detach yourself from situations or persons  —   and understand
that the only thing you can ever change is yourself.
Surrender and acknowledge what is.

c)     Learn to live only in the present moment:   that is, here
and now;

because this is the only true time of living.
Make this your habit, and prevent all distractions from
the past or the future.

d)     Pursue learning and growth.
Read books and various writings in order to become more
aware, avoid mistakes, be inspired and take better decisions
in your life.

e)     Have solid beliefs, and stay absolutely true to them.
This way you will be guided towards inner peace and have
better quality of life.

f)     Be caring and considerate.
Always hope for the best no matter what else happens at
the moment.
Believe that all will go well eventually.

g)     Develop emotions only for the things that really
matter to you.
Ignore and discard whatever else is out there.
This is your power to tranquillity and happiness.

h)     Learn to enjoy solitude;
meditate, read or write, sit or photograph nature, do
some breathing exercises, focus on appreciation and

i)     Resolve all unsettled issues in your life thoroughly,
and stay 
true to yourself without hiding or interpreting
things in 
thoughtless ways.
Only then you will feel calm and free.

Bed Of Roses


Living your life in utter confusion by constantly fighting
against everything and everybody is an absolutely 
destructive and deadly obsession.

The most major obstruction to enjoying inner peace is
your assumption that the way your life is at this moment
is not good enough;   so you need to keep on changing it.
Certainly this is an endless route, and it needs to be
addressed as soon as possible.

Learn to face the facts of nature, surrender and accept 
them as they are, without resisting the reality.
Take full responsibility for your thoughts, feelings, 
emotions and actions.

It really is a difficult process, but it can be achieved as
soon as you decide within yourself to start changing the
way you think.
You need to find new ways to improve your life, and 
transform yourself mentally.

Distance yourself from your thoughts;
understand change and the actual relationship you have
with your mind, in order to feel free and peaceful.

Inner Peace is a Choice.
Inner Peace should be your topmost goal.
Learn to make it priority in your life.


Good Luck!!!





Ground Zero!


Hi there!


Love is an extremely strong and very effective disorder
affecting our nervous system.
It is a chemical means developed through our evolution
to benefit and promote our species to survive and prosper.

It helps us develop and maintain relationships;
it encourages us to defend and protect ourselves physically
and mentally;
it makes us want very deeply to support our offspring.

In the modern world, the most heroic struggle in one’s
life is to love themselves;   and it really is an awfully
difficult and terribly exhausting thing to do.

Most people neglect their own needs, health and
happiness, because they have been taught to do so
since they were children;
and certainly because loving others is easier than loving

And yet, self love is the foundation of the most important
relationship you will ever have  —  the relationship with



Bull’s – Eye


Self love is not a state of just feeling good by having a lot
of money, and buying and doing everything we want,
or being narcissistic.

Self love means to accept yourself exactly as you are and
what you are.
It means to know your own qualities and how significant you
are;   to know your purpose and your limits.

Self love means to always look after and be kind to yourself.
It means to really know that you do deserve your love, your
respect, admiration, and appreciation at all times.

Loving yourself is a number of actions that provide you
with confidence, determination and belief in yourself;
you will enjoy peace of mind;   you will demonstrate better
judgement;   and you will savour overall happiness.

You will be able to make the right decisions, and you will
exhibit more love towards other people.
You will be mentally stronger and balanced, and your life
will become simpler.

Certainly it must be emphasized that, self love is not
something temporary and
short-lived    but a continuous
and growing
course of actions.



End In View


The following routines will help you build self love:

a)     Reduce and finally eliminate all negative beliefs
about yourself, either they are routed from your past
or they are self-inflicted.

b)     Stop thinking that you must be perfect in everything
you do in order to be happy.
Perfection does not exist;   nothing in life is perfect.

c)     Focus only on your positive qualities and values,
each and every day.

d)     Be truthful, honest, realistic and sensible.

e)     Do all the things that make you feel good.
Be creative and develop hobbies.

f)     Never compare yourself to other people.
You are a unique person, so compare only to yourself.

g)     Establish healthy, explicit and precise limits to
all your actions and steps.

h)     Always give priority to yourself, because you
have earned it and you deserve to be first.

i)     Find your purpose, meaning and direction in life.
Only then you will be happy and fulfilled.



j)     Take full responsibility for your own health and
Watch your diet, exercise, sleep, rest, relaxation, fun
and relationships.

k)     Surround yourself only with people who love you
and make you feel good, and eliminate all others.

l)     Take risks, examine various opportunities coming
your way, and celebrate your wins at the end.

m)    Every day feel grateful about something in your
life, even if it is something very small, no matter what
else is happening around you.

n)     Be very aware and wise about your own thoughts,
feelings and desires, to be able to keep things under control.

o)     Forgive yourself whenever you make any mistakes,
and try to learn from them.

p)     Envisage yourself being empowered, inspired,
motivated and encouraged.

By practising the above mentioned actions of self love,
you will learn to cherish, honour, respect, accept
and really care for yourself.

Self love is a continuous and steady passage.
Self love is something you can choose and adopt.

Select correctly and enjoy the benefits and rewards.




Hi there!


Matty was an executive manager, working hard
until early evening every day.
He enjoyed a lot of benefits and rewards, but
also plenty of troubles.

There was always something going on in his mind.
That voice inside his head would never become
quite;    all he could hear was his boss reminding
him of his many obligations.

He was feeling overpowered and utterly confused.
His mind was full of clutter that made him 
nervous, agitated, even anxious and unable to focus.

I know I need to find the proper means to fight 
this huge problem I have    and very soon!
he thought one day.
He certainly understood the situation, and he knew
he could be in control of his circumstances.

Finally he took all the necessary steps to change
that troublesome position he was in, and clean
some space in his head.

Topsy – Turviness


The challenging combination of external and
internal demands, as well as your personal
expectations  can cause your mind to clutter
and be confused.

Most people are experiencing this unpleasant 
situation all their life.
They seem to forget that removing all litter from
their mind and heart, is the most important thing
they can do, in order to enjoy a balanced and
peaceful existence.

Their fast moving every day living together with
their survival basics, is full of various 
at home and at work
so they ignore their internal peace.

They fail to remember that if they wish to live a 
meaningful and rich life they will need to achieve
inner peace.

Obviously you can continue holding close to your
heart all emotions, feelings and experiences you 
have been and are going through, only because this
is much easier than clearing them all out.

But keep in mind that although getting rid of your
internal clutter needs you to be brave, fearless,
determined and powerful, this is actually the only
way you can transform your life.

Smack In The Middle


Follow the below mentioned tips to clear some
of your internal clutter:

a)     Be decisive and solve your problems as soon 
as they arise, so they do not become massive.
If you are not able to find a solution, then accept
that your difficult situation is not a problem, but
a fact of life, which needs to be handled as such.

b)     Discard your desire to control everything and
Live your life without demands and requirements
in order to feel free.

c)    Give the greatest gift to yourself :  Forgiveness;
because it is only then that you will feel relieved
and liberated.

d)     Be an optimist, and think positively.
Do not worry about the wrong things around you,
and non existent situations


Clear Skies


e)     Distance yourself from anybody who keeps you
back and brings you down or hurt you.
Doing so, you will grow and evolve.

f)     Eliminate past memories of any kind that do
not contribute anything to your present life.

g)   Prioritize all your responsibilities and set all
daily routine jobs on automatic.
Organize your day so that you can deal with only
one thing at a time.

Mental clutter leads to psychological blockage.

You can not think clearly and focus on the important
things in your life any more.

It is only when you erase this mental confusion that
you will make space for all the things that really
matter to you.

You will then feel healthy, satisfied, cheerful, peaceful
and happy in your life.
