Dharma vs Tao vs Eudaimonia
I've been learning about ancient traditions including Hinduism, Buddhism, Taosim, and the works of ancient Greek philosophers. I've noticed they all have a central principle that is reminiscent of each other. I've never heard anyone else make the connection, but these all arose in a similar part...

Dreamt of Hell Last Night
This was closer to Jhonen Vasquez's hell in JtHM, really. The damned were just continuing their miserable existences in the ignorance of death. But I knew. I wasn't there for me. I followed someone, looking for a way to help them, to save them from an eternity of self torment. The little...
Who has read at least one full chapter of the Bible?
Even an easy one like Genesis, Exodus, or one of the Gospels. If so, what made you decide to read it, and what was one takeaway you got from the stories?

Unabridged but shortish philosophy books
I've noticed philosophy books help me detach from mental pain, expands my brain. Any suggestions that have affected you similarly? If the book can be 400 pages or under that'd be nice.
Do you read philosophy books?
I like reading books on Stoicism. I finally finished reading Marcus Aurelius's Meditations. What a wonderful book! There were a lot of notorious a-hole Roman emperors. I imagine that Aurelius was the only one who really cared about his people and tried his best to be a good person. Then, again, I...
The purpose of living is for people to help one another and look out for eachother
This is my personal philosophy. I want to be better at helping while managing my people pleasing and ADHD. I think there's a way to manage your own needs TO be a better utility to those around you. Being a machine that fails to self-maintain? How can you help anyone? That puts the people you...
What school of thought?
What school of thought do you subscribe to? Stoicism, Eastern Philosophy, Existentialism, Western Christian Theology, or just some various mix of everything on different days of the week?
