Change which happens. Not made to happen… [Προσδοκώ…]


Many people like to believe that they are the masters of their destiny. But this is hardly the case.

We are all puppets in the hands of fate.

In one split moment our lives can be ruined or glorified just because something “happened”.

Christ tells us that even if we look at another woman we are a sinner. Many people see this as Christ being too strict. But He is not. He simply reminds us of our powerlessness over what happens. That is why as a Christian I expect (Gr. προσδοκώ) but not try to build an everlasting life (Gr. ζωήν του μέλλοντος αιώνος).

Fate as ancient Greeks described it IS NOT a power to which you must abide, but a reality which you must understand. We are thrown into the cosmos. Conscious beings, able to affect everything. Only if you understand that you cannot affect them.

Try to swim against the current and you will drown.

Save your strength and swim only when necessary and you will live.

Perception. Acceptance. Consciousness.

The epitomy of Being…

Spiros Kakos is a thinker located in Greece. He has been Chief Editor of Harmonia Philosophica since its inception. In the past he has worked as a senior technical advisor for many years. In his free time he develops software solutions and contributes to the open source community. He has also worked as a phD researcher in the Advanced Materials sector related to the PCB industry. He likes reading and writting, not only philosophy but also in general. He believes that science and religion are two sides of the same coin and is profoundly interested in Religion and Science philosophy. His philosophical work is mainly concentrated on an effort to free thinking of "logic" and reconcile all philosophical opinions under the umbrella of the "One" that Parmenides - one of the first thinkers - visualized. The "Harmonia Philosophica" articles program is the tool that will accomplish that. Life's purpose is to be defeated by greater things. And the most important things in life are illogical. We must fight the dogmatic belief in "logic" if we are to stay humans... Credo quia absurdum!
