    Default What do you think is the best Approach to Living life?

    Basically title, but wondering about justifications. My views have changed as I've gotten olden and I'm curious about other people.

    A lot of different psychoanalytical schools of thought, socialism, individualism, libertarianism/self-government and greek and roman philosophy.

    I'm also a practicing RC.

    I also think that Bruce Lee's philosophy or sayings too, the aspects of reinvention, flexibility and adaptation. I know that there's a lot of criticism of Lee or his family's marketing of the legacy suggesting it was all just cliches or aphorism used in a cynical sales and marketing fashion to a culture which was totally unfamiliar with its novelty value but I dont buy that really. I like the philosophies of Confucian and Taoist thought which I think informed some of Lee's thinking. They are opposites but each seems really incomplete to me without the other.

    The best approach is the one that works for you but should include the ability to cope in society and being capable of supporting yourself.

    Enough skepticism and self interest to keep yourself safe. Engage all else with optimistic idealism. Train yourself in dedication and self discipline, learn to love failure, and you will evolve radically.

    Not worrying about what "the best" way to live life is and just live it...



    My name is John Catstantine. I'm the one who steps from the shadows, all trenchcoat and cigarette and arrogance, ready to deal with the madness. Oh, I've got it all sewn up. I can save you. If it takes the last drop of your blood, I'll drive your demons away. I'll kick them in the bollocks and spit on them when they're down, and then I'll be gone back into the darkness, leaving only a nod and a wink and a wisecrack. I walk my path alone... who would want to walk with me?

    Really depends on the individual and their experience and situation.
    " Do something, even if it's wrong."

    " I don't wanna have to but I will, if that's what I'm supposed to do
    We don't wanna set up for the kill, but that's what I'm 'bout to do."
