As I walk into the light, I know nothing. As I walk into the darkness, all is clear..
I've been researching Stoicism lately and it is a very interesting philosophy. The natural order of the universe is peace and that happiness or any good feeling emotions is an add on to peace and unhappiness or any bad feeling emotion is a subtraction of peace.
It makes sense, if you see a rock it is peaceful/still, if you look at any object, it holds no emotion but is still.
I saw this quote and didn't know what to make of it
"As I walk into the light, I know nothing. As I walk into the darkness, all is clear." - Yazkin
I was reading this book called The Tao of Pooh (Bear) and it says that out of nothingness comes something (ex nihil omna). When you clear your mind and when you bring it back to peace the impulses and the answers comes.
Anyway, this is what I've read and I thought it was interesting. I'm going to practice this philosophy for a bit and see what happens!
Happiness/ Good-Feeling emotion (add on of peace)
Unhappiness/Violence/Boredom/Bad-Feeling emotion (absense of peace)
