Thanks for letting me lead Southpaw this morning. The IPC was a great warmup for a fun Q.
I’ve been reading some Greek philosophy books and wanted to share a snip of Letters from a Stoic by Seneca.
This is from Letter V:
“But let me share with you as usual the day’s small find (which today is something that I
noticed in the Stoic writer Hecato). Limiting one’s desires actually helps to cure one of fear.
“Cease to hope,’ he says, ‘and you will cease to fear.’ *But how,’ you will ask, *can things as
diverse as these be linked?’ Well, the fact is, Lucilius, that they are bound up with one another, unconnected as they may seem. Widely different though they are, the two of them march in unison like a prisoner and the escort he is handcuffed to. Fear keeps pace with hope. Nor does their so moving together surprise me; both belong to a mind in suspense, to a mind in a state of anxiety through looking into the future. Both are mainly due to projecting our thoughts far ahead of us instead of adapting ourselves to the present. Thus it is that foresight, the greatest blessing humanity has been given, is transformed into a curse. Wild animals run from the dangers they actually see, and once they have escaped them worry no more. We however are tormented alike by what is past and what is to come. A number of our blessings do us harm, for memory brings
back the agony of fear while foresight brings it on prematurely. No one confines his unhappiness to the present.”
Some scholars find many traces of Stoicism in the New Testament, particularly in the teachings of the Apostle Paul. One even concludes: “Paul was a crypto-Stoic” (Engberg-Perderson, in Strange & Zupko, 2009). Paul was deeply influenced by Stoic philosophy, if not directly by Seneca.
Philippians 4: 11-13
11 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. 12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
Thanks for all your friendships and brotherhood. You guys mean a lot to me.
