Personal philosophy in short way

PLAY.
BE AUTHENTIC.
LOVE.

Play and have fun. Do everything with joy, fully aware of the moment. Be authentic. That means - know yourself. Put a piece of yourself into everything you do. Love. Love yourself, people, nature, animals, the Universe, love your fate, your thoughts and emotions, love your body and your inner self. Make love with life. And hug!

Here are the principles that appeal to me in my current phase of life...

Amor fati
Nietzsche, Stoicism, Epictetus, Marcus Aurelius
Love of fate. Love your fate. Amor fati is a mindset that you take on for making the best out of anything that happens. Treating each and every moment - no matter how challenging - as something to be embraced, not avoided. To not only be okay with it, but love it and be better for it.

Marcus Aurelius’s timeless wisdom: “A blazing fire makes flame and brightness out of everything that is thrown into it.” So that like oxygen to a fire, obstacles and adversity become fuel for your potential.

Stuff is gonna happen and it can break your hearth, it can break your spirit or you can embrace it and love it.
Favorite quotes:

“Life is a game of dice. Even if you don't throw the number you like, you still have to play it and play it well.” - Arthur Schopenhauer -

“Not merely bear what is necessary but love it.” - Friedrich Nietzsche -

“Do not seek for things to happen the way you want them to; rather, wish that what happens happen the way it happens: then you will be happy.” - Epictetus -

“There is only one way to happiness and that is to cease worrying about things which are beyond the power of our will.” - Epictetus -

“Make the best use of what is in your power, and take the rest as it happens.” - Epictetus -

Memento mori
Stoicism
Remember that you [have to] die.

A simple reminder can bring us closer to living the life we want. It doesn’t matter who you are or how many things you have left to be done, a car can hit you in an intersection and drive your teeth back into your skull. That’s it. It could all be over. Today, tomorrow, someday soon.

Every time you see the sunset, everytime you see the sunrise you should stop and remind yourself - you will never see that again. Not this specific sunrise. That's one less that you will ever get in your life. It's not that the death is in the future but that we are dying every minute.
Favorite quotes:

“But here's the thing: you already have a terminal diagnosis - we all do...every person is born with a death sentence; each second that passes by is one you'll never get back.” - Ryan Holiday -

“Everything ends once.”

Good character, good deeds
Stoicism
To the Stoics, the criteria for success were simple: displaying good character and doing good works. As Marcus Aurelius said: The fruit of this life is good character and acts for the common good.

It's about perfecting the self or working on the self so one can make bigger difference in the world. Are you working on yourself? Great, but then how are you making the difference in the world? How are you making things better? How are you contributing?  How are you being of service?

Remind yourself everyday: What's my character and what am I doing for others?

Be water
Bruce Lee, Stoicism, Martial arts
Bruce Lee is teaching us to be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves.
Favorite quotes:

“Empty your mind. Be formless. Shapeless. Like water. You put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can flow, or it can crash. Be water, my friend.” - Brece Lee -

“You are the creator and the interpreter of your life in every moment.” - Bruce Lee -

“Do not pray for an easy life, pray for the strength to endure a difficult one.” - Bruce Lee -

“Adapt what is useful, reject what is useless, and add what is specifically your own.” - Bruce Lee -

“Is someone scolding you? It goes through you. Do they praise you? This goes through you too. It goes through you and after all it's still... you.” - Jaroslav Dušek -

Food is medicine
Cooking, Fasting
“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” hearkens back to Hippocrates, the father of medicine. The beauty of food as medicine is that the choice to heal and promote health can begin as soon as the next meal. 

Cook at home with basic ingredients, minimize processed foods, eat rainbow. Cooking with love provides food for the soul and the food just tastes better.
Favorite quotes:

"Each patient carries his own doctor inside him." - Norman Cousins -

"No disease that can be treated by diet should be treated with any other means." - Maimonides -

"What if religion was each other?
If our practice was our life?
If prayer was our words?
What if the temple was the Earth?
If forests were our church?
If holy water - the rivers, lakes, and oceans?
What if meditation was our relationships?
If the Teacher was life?
If wisdom was knowledge?
If love was the center of our being."
