  1. Sometimes I feel that nowadays, people should be a little bit less free in their possibility to decices. I don’t know how is in Greece, but in Poland I can see that this freedom makes people unhappy. We have times of civilizational self-destruction.
    God should have given us a little less free will.:-)

    • Good morning Beata!!

      “In my view, the reality of good and evil does not depend upon the existence of free will, because with or without free will, we can distinguish between suffering and happiness. With or without free will, a psychopath who enjoys killing children is different from a pediatric surgeon who enjoys saving them. Whatever the truth about free will, these distinctions are unmistakable and well worth caring about.” – SamHarris.org

      Tell me why you believe that… because I believe but we must have free will on correct choices…

      You will tell me … what is correct…. is correct the same for all of us…… and you will have right…..

      • I meant a very simple thing. If a man were programmed so that he could not do evil, the world would be better. Free will means that he can do evil, just as he can do good. Only his own conscience divides these two issues. And all of us know that this free will is not enought to stop a man.

        Hav a good day Dear:-)

  2. This quote touches me deeply today, as lately I feel as if I have seen some things in my life and around me in this world that I cannot simply forget. Once we come into the knowledge of something, there’s no turning back. Gaining knowledge can be beautiful, but it can also be painful. I’m not sure if this is what this quote means, but it makes me think of that. Really beautiful post, Efi!!

    • I will give you the whole thought of Nietzsche but i like your thoughts also!!!!

      ”There is more wisdom in your body than in your deepest philosophy.”

      ”O man, take care!
      What does the deep midnight declare?
      ”I was asleep—
      From a deep dream I woke and swear:—
      The world is deep,
      Deeper than day had been aware.
      Deep is its woe—
      Joy—deeper yet than agony:
      Woe implores: Go!
      But all joy wants eternity—
      Wants deep, wants deep eternity.”

      ”And once you are awake, you shall remain awake eternally.”

      ”But the worst enemy you can meet will always be yourself; you lie in wait for yourself in caverns and forests. Lonely one, you are going the way to yourself! And your way goes past yourself, and past your seven devils! You will be a heretic to yourself and witch and soothsayer and fool and doubter and unholy one and villain. You must be ready to burn yourself in your own flame: how could you become new, if you had not first become ashes?”

      ― Thus Spoke Zarathustra

      • This is so profound! This line sticks out the most for me:
        “how could you become new, if you had not first become ashes?”
        Reminds me that we have to be willing to break down, in order to build ourselves into something new and greater. Wonderful, wonderful words, Efi! Thank you for sharing this with me! ❤️😃
