And yet the Seeker still seeks. Look into thy own heart you wandering holy one. In your own breast you have been carrying
that for which you seek.
Here is a quote from the cynic philosopher Monicus of Cyracuse.
"it was better to lack sight than education, because under the first affliction, you fall to the ground, under the latter, deep underground.".
What do you think from that quote?
Your whole post made a lot of sense to me. It is true we are sold to a certain extent a promise for a better good but behind the veil lies something
of a totally different nature.
I decided to quote this part in particular because it is the one I feel needs to be told more often. We all have what we need inside of ourselves so
why seek and outside source for happiness. I now believe from my research on many Greek philosophers and their ideas that one of the best way to reach
this happiness within is to "know thyself", merely meaning to knowing oneself.
It comes more precisely from Thales of Miletus, one of the Seven Sages of Greece
Thank you for your input, these words are from a wise man this is for sure.
