The Golden Verses Of The Stoic

Seneca and Epictetus refer to the Golden Verses of Pythagoras , which happens to provide a good framework for developing a daily routine, bookended by morning and evening contemplative practices. Zeno of Citium , who founded Stoicism in 301 BC, expressed his doctrines in notoriously terse arguments and concise maxims.  However, Chrysippus, the third head of the Stoic school, wrote over 700 books fleshing these ideas out and adding complex arguments to support them.

It is amazing to me the weirdness which is instantly brought into any discussion of religion, belief or spirituality. At this moment I'm not talking about anyone who has posted an email to me, or left a comment. What caught my eye, and prompted this post is an Ad in the strip on the side, which suggested that you could learn how to jump into the dimension of God, and go visit him.

As far as I know, jumping into other dimensions is not required to talk or visit with God. So save your money (and his too), and don't click on that ad (and if he offers you grape drink, run).
