A PLACE FOR ME TO FIGURE IT OUT.
Day 1: Archilocus (Archilochos) 650s BCE
Oh soul, turn by unbearable concerns.
Stand up, defend yourself from your enemies.
Outsmart them moving cautiously through their ambushes.
But do not triumph when you win, nor lay down crying when defeated.
Nor get overjoyed in your joys or overwhelmed in your sorrows.
Just learn what rhythm governs human affairs.
This is, I believe, a tribute to the argument of an open mind. Ancient cultures believed the heart, mind, and soul to be one thing, whereas the organs of the brain and the heart were not necessarily connected to them. Be humble, be aware. Keep yourself open to the world and its possibilities while protecting yourself, and fulfillment you will receive.
