Seneca & Siddhartha
Where Buddhism and Stoicism meet.
Are you tired of having your hopes and dreams dashed, time and time and time again?
Well, that’s why we created emptiness1.
You see, it’s not that you need to stop having hopes and dreams; enjoy the drama! But recognize that if anything could’ve satisfied you, you would’ve been satisfied a long time ago2. And it’s not dashed dreams that has you down, it’s the craving for the next outcome, the next meal, the next bowl, that has you down3.
