Coming back after a long break

Post  Achrelus on Mon Mar 31, 2014 11:32 pm

For those who have joined in the long while I have been gone, I am the creator and one of the admins of this site. For those regulars who still remember me, hello again.  I think I am going to be back on a regular basis again.

As of late, I have been feeling an unusual calm, a lack of negative emotion,  and over all inner peace. I was contemplating this today and it occurred to me that it is what is described in Stoicism.  Thinking about this I realized that through all my personal change I have not really lost any of the influence from the Helleno-Roman roots I deeply established with all of you. I still dont adhere to any one school of thought. Rather how I now feel and think and live is a combination of various philosophical schools found here. I have decided to return to my interest in our philosophies, to explore ideas that I find I can or do incorporate into my thinking. I have blended alot of things from different philosophies, and I hope that doesnt annoy any of the more philosophically litterate here. Sorry in advance haha.

Anyway, having reestablished my connection to the culture, I have decided to come back. I won't post much on the religion,  but will be lurking the philosophy section. Happy to be back.

Welcome back — I hope to hear from you some in the Philosophy subforum.  Wink 

"O Best of Gods, blest daimon crown'd with fire . . . hear, and from punishment my soul absolve, the punishment incurr'd by pristine guilt, thro' Lethe's darkness and terrene desire: and if for long-extended years I'm doom'd in these drear realms Heav'n's exile to remain, O grant me soon the necessary means to gain that good which solitude confers on souls emerging from the bitter waves of fraudful Hyle's black, impetuous flood!"
-Iulianic Hymn to Apollon-Helios, ll. 65-106

"Having come for punishment, one must be punished. One must not pull apart the god within oneself."
-Iamblichus, Vita Pythagorica

"Truth would you teach, or save a sinking land,
All hear, none aid you, and few understand."
-Alexander Pope
