Daily Meditation — 4/16/2022
Other’s words are only swords if you let them be swords.
If you have control of your emotions and your perception, then you know a word is only a sword when you add the “s” before it!
But, when you perceive the words of someone else as a weapon, it is only because you have opened the gate to the fortress of your mind, walked them to your own forge and crafted for them this weapon.
Stop allowing others dominion over your life and world by granting them power over your emotions and perception.
If you learn nothing else from Eudaimonic study in this book I hope it is to saddle and bit the control of your perception!
Follow for daily philosophical meditations.
These are distillations from my coming book “YouDaimonia: the Ancient Philosophy of Human Flourishing.”
