Deep Questions About Life and The Greeks
The unexamined life is not worth living – Socrates
We all know Socrates as a man who asked powerful questions, challenging societal norms and uncovering long-held assumptions. His deep questions about life and his ability to ask questions to make people think were his talents.
Just like we all know, asking deep questions about life has the possibility to create a lot of enemies.
In the case of Socrates, he was put on trial for corrupting the youth of Athens – the questions that he was asking were seen as criminal.
When he faced the judges he didn’t defend himself, he could have left Athens after being found guilty.
Instead, Socrates performed his own execution by drinking poison.
He inspired others to lead in his footsteps and when we think about philosophy we always think of the Greeks.
That same passion is with us today…
Questions to Think About, Let’s Talk
Wouldn’t life be boring without good questions?
Questions are the way we find our passions and how we connect with people.
As our world continues to become more technologically advanced it seems to be getting harder to actually connect.
That is why asking deep questions about life are more important than ever.
If we keep looking down at our phones and finding everything by putting in search terms, it doesn’t use any critical thinking. And just like any other muscle in the body, if you don’t use it you’ll lose it.
What Are You Going to Do?
We all know that it can be a challenge to have meaningful conversations about life. That’s something we can all agree on.
But the real question is what you will do to help get yourself and the people you care about outside of that forever famous comfort zone.
