  Video Version   Text Version Total Reading Time: 1 minute. If you don’t absolutely love your life and love yourself, there may be two core reasons why this is happening. The first reason is that you have a life inside of you — a version of yourself — that is unlived.

The Re-Birth of Philosophy and Living a Life Well Lived

  Video Version Text Version Total Reading Time: 3 minutes. When we say the word philosophy we generally think of ancient wisdom. Ancient thinking and wisdom that has been passed down and was really only relevant at that point in time in Ancient history 2000+ years ago. And I think that’s unfortunate.
