Mein Kodex, Fortsetzung

Aristotle-at-university-of-thessaloniki-greece

Aristoteles vor der Universität von Thessaloniki, Griechenland.

3,006 words

Übersetzt von Deep Roots

English original here

In einem früheren Essay teilte ich zehn Aphorismen aus „meinem Kodex“ mit. Falls euch dieser Essay entgangen ist, sage ich nur, daß ich vor ein paar Jahren beschloß, einen Kodex zu erstellen, um danach zu leben. Wie die meisten Dinge, die ich tue, verwandelte sich das in ein größeres Projekt, und ich sammelte schließlich Nuggets „praktischer Weisheit“ aus allen möglichen Quellen: Aristoteles, die Stoiker und Epikureer, die Eddas und Sagas, Read more …

Mein Kodex

Peter Paul Rubens, "The Four Philosophers," with a bust of Seneca, 1611-1612

Peter Paul Rubens: „Die vier Philosophen“, mit einer Büste von Seneca, 1611-1612

3,851 words

Übersetzt von Deep Roots

English original here

Vor ein paar Jahren entschied ich, daß ich einen Kodex brauchte, um danach zu leben: eine Reihe von Prinzipien, die mein Leben leiten. Nun, es ist nicht so, als hätte ich nicht bereits einige Prinzipien entdeckt, die mir als richtig erschienen; es war nicht so, als ob ich im Blindflug unterwegs gewesen wäre, ohne irgendwelche Überzeugungen. Aber ich hatte mich nie hingesetzt und darüber nachgedacht, woraus genau mein „Kodex“ bestand, und das alles zu Papier gebracht. Read more …

My Code, Continued

Aristotle-at-university-of-thessaloniki-greece2,926 words

In an earlier essay, I shared ten aphorisms from “my code.” In case you missed that essay, I will just say that a few years ago I decided to establish a code to live by. Like most of the things I do, this turned into a major project and I wound up gathering nuggets of “practical knowledge” from all manner of sources: Aristotle, the Stoics and Epicureans, the Eddas and Sagas, medieval Chivalry, Japanese Bushido, Tyler Durden, G. I. Gurdjieff, and even Indian Shaivism. Read more …

My Code

Peter Paul Rubens, "The Four Philosophers," with a bust of Seneca, 1611-1612

Peter Paul Rubens, “The Four Philosophers,” with a bust of Seneca, 1611-1612

3,739 words

German translation here

A few years ago, I decided I needed a code to live by: a set of principles to guide my life. Now, it’s not as if I hadn’t already discovered some principles that seemed right to me; it wasn’t as if I was flying blind, without any convictions. But I had never sat down and reflected on exactly what my “code” consisted in, and put it all on paper. So, I decided one day to do just that.
