    Philosophy

    do you live by any form of philosophy? I'm really interested to hear philosophical concepts people have picked up through books, or various forms of experience.

    most of my philosophy comes out of the book Way of The Peaceful Warrior . . . which is essentially:

    if you're not happy now, you will never be happy.
    there is no past or future, there is only now.


    there are several other concepts, but I seem to have forgot.

    please share your insight .

    does "treat people how you want to be treated" count?

    How does that work for a masochist?

    Edit: forgot an on-topic comment: My credo is, "Leave me alone and I'll do the same for you."

    Now taking a pool on the number of tough-as-nails "hardcore nihilists" that'll pop up!

    Most of my personal philosophy comes from Thich Nhat Hanh's Zen Keys and the works of R. A. Wilson.

    Re: Philosophy

    Having a philosophy is one thing, but it's realy not absolute. It changes & evolves when your environment chenges. Or els you will not servive.


    if you're not happy now, you will never be happy. ... I say true
    there is no past or future, there is only now.... true
    treat people how you want to be treated ... true to.

    A great thing about the human mind is that it is capble to produce the 'wright' philosophy to servive. Serviving in the office or the jungle!

    You mean your philosophy is to go to Kitty Hawk and invent the airplane?

    Cut him some slack. He's probably Dutch, given his location. I doubt that I would be able to make anything close to a passable post in Dutch.

    I cant say that I live under any particular credo, but I am pretty into Egoism.

    Sorry, I didn't mean anything by it. I would have made the same gag no matter what anyone's native language.
