Self-cultivation is not about doing hard work or forcing yourself to achieve an objective. The essence is in sitting with composure and emptying the mind.
Take care of the soil of your body and mind. Sit quietly, exhale, and relax. The words we output with our bodies become our nutrition. Cultivate your soul.
Carpe Diem. Greek poet Horatius advises you to minimize thinking about the future and pick today. The essential part is stillness. Practice it with Empatheme.
Be a doer. Cultivate yourself. Cultivation is not about what to do or what not to do. It’s about trying to become a cultivator. Cultivate a path to become one.
Practice means (1) Do it by yourself (2) Act with your body (3) Do it regularly (4) Iterate (5) Reflect (6) Change yourself (7) Connect with yourself and others
The self is made of dialogue. Words are born from dialogue with others, before words. Even alone, we live with the words we speak to others. I am the dialogue.
What is mindful practice? What good does it do? Meditation is actually about getting in touch with yourself and relaxing your full mind. Isn’t your mind full?
Hard branches will break. Be flexible and bend well. To guide yourself for the equanimity of mind and body. Listen to your body’s voice.
The small unit of time is vital. The secret is the amount of work you can do in less than a few minutes, with your micro-actions. Output your voice in a flow.
Being satisfied with the knowledge of habit does not lead to action. Empatheme helps you practice the micro-actions you need. Unlearning matters most.
