Comfort Zone

This is another one of those you see everywhere but you never learn who said it. Google attributes it to an author, Neale Donald Walsch. It sounds opposite to a hedonic approach to living, but it embodies Epicurus’ philosophy to the fullest. How else can you take on Socrates’ maxim to “Know thyself,” except by exploring every adventure that presents itself? Ataraxia (balance) arrives as you learn what supports you, and what you, in turn, support. That never arises from handed-down directives that too often serve interests that work against your own, and make of you a puppet.
