74 Principles for Stronger Living

“Know Thyself”

This ancient aphorism is written on the Temple of Apollo in Delphi, Greece.

“To know thyself is the beginning of all wisdom”, said the Greek philosopher Aristotle.

Unfortunately, there is quite a bit we are not taught about ourselves in our conventional schooling and mainstream culture. Those in the halls of high government and corporate power profit and gain control based off of our ignorance about ourselves. Ignorance about how to feed our body, how to move our body, and how to keep our body and mind healthy.

Some say knowledge is power, but I say knowledge is potential energy. Applying that knowledge is power. It is freedom. Time to power up and free your mind and body.
