014 Minimalism and Bodhidaoism

4/15/2018
More
I just watched Minimalism: a Documentary About the Important Things on Netflix. I recommend the movie. But what is minimalism? According to the Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus, “Minimalism is a tool to rid yourself of life’s excess in favor of focusing on what’s important—so you can find happiness, fulfillment, and freedom.”[1] But this is not new. First there was the Daoists, and not too long ago there was the voluntary simplicity movement. Minimalist or simplicity is a spiritual...

013 The Four Realizations of Bodhidaoism

4/6/2018
More
The first realization is that you lack inner peace and want to find it. The second realization is that unawareness, selfishness, non-acceptance of reality, and separation from Nature are the root causes of your lack of inner peace. The third realization is that if you remove the root causes you will eliminate their effects, resulting in increasing inner peace. The fourth realization is that you must change your heart and mind by awakening to reality, living selflessly, accepting the way...

012 Epicurus and Hedonism

3/30/2018
More
Epicureanism is one of the three major schools that arose during the Hellenistic period of philosophy. Stoicism and Skepticism (Pyrrhonism). The teachings of Epicurus are often labeled hedonism, which says that pleasure is the chief good in life. One instantly imagines orgies and gluttonous partying. But that is not what he meant. As J. M. Rist explains, “what he means by claiming that pleasure is the [aim] of life… [is] freedom from bodily pain and mental affliction” (1972, 100). The aim...

011 Philosophy as the Study of Wisdom

3/23/2018
More
Philosophy is the study of wisdom, a philosopher is a student of wisdom, and Bodhidaoism is the result of that study. But philosophy as conceived in the West has changed from the art of living to arguments of tecghincal distinctions. Furthermore, why does philosophy refer to “Western” philosophy and not all of philosophy? Most philosopher act like only the West has philosophy. As Jay Garfield points out, “For the Western colonial enterprise, and the racism and blindness to non-Western...

010 Bodhidaoism is a Eupraxsophy

3/17/2018
More
Paul Kurtz coined the term eupraxsophy in 1988. He saw that there is no word in English to adequately describe s nontheistic system of beliefs and practices. Back in the days of Hellenistic philosophy the word philosophy itself meant the art of living. But philosophy has ceased meaning that. So Paul Kurtz came up with eupraxsophy, which means “good practical wisdom.” It applies to Bodhidaoism as well as Humanism.

009 The Difference Between Awakening and Enlightenment

3/9/2018
More
What is the difference between awakening and enlightenment? In this episode we discover that enlightenment deals with something outside of yourself, it deals with light. Light is a metaphor for knowledge. Enlightenment deals with the gaining of knowledge. Awakening, on the other hand, is about becoming conscious of something already there. Like being asleep and unaware of the world around you. Waking up is about become conscious, about becoming aware. It is not so much about learning as...

008 Truth and Nontruth

3/3/2018
More
I call a claim “true” which, based on the evidence, has a good probability of being true. Remember that absolute certainty is impossible, all we have is probability. I call a claim “false” which, based on the evidence, has a good probability of being false. And I call a claim “inconclusive” which does not have enough evidence to make a judgment. Inconclusive claims are neither true nor false. Both false claims and inconclusive claims I label “nontruths”. Nontruths are claims that do not...
