The World-Ruler

*Attention! This is going to be a brutal post!* From all the things we have in this world, there is one that rules them all (and no, it’s not the one ring). There is something that has the ability to control anything and anyone, if leveraged correctly. People tend to do anything for this, regardless... Continue Reading →

The Past, The Present and The Future

These three aspects seem to be so well delimited that it’s hard to believe they co-exist inside of us all the time. Even though yesterday seems to be over and that tomorrow is yet to come, we do think and behave now based on yesterday and tomorrow. Wanna hear how this got into my mind... Continue Reading →

Mind vs Reality

Don’t worry, that “vs” is just for show. It’s not a battle, but there are differences, especially if we think about what “reality” really means. Have you ever searched for what Wikipedia says about reality? Here it is: “Reality is the sum or aggregate of all that is real or existent, as opposed to that which... Continue Reading →

Life Assess

When you think about your life, what thoughts come to you? What about when you think about life in general? What’s the difference between those two perspectives? I’m now wondering if the feelings I have when I consider the worst parts of my life are the same with other people’s feelings. There are people on... Continue Reading →

Unstructured Writing

I always thought a piece of written content must be structured in such a way that it looks nice and that has a logical form from top to bottom. But does that apply to all types of writings? Lately, I changed my mind and I think it doesn’t. Structured writing is very useful when you... Continue Reading →

SnapDragon Speaks: On Letting Go.

Written by SnapDragon X. All rights reserved, yo. I'm a bit of a sentimental old fool. I love knickknacks and postcards and photos from years past. They're relics of a fleeting moment; they make up the personal museum of my life. So, sometimes it can be hard to just let. things. go. You know? And... Continue Reading →

Philosophy: an art of living

Provided by Cleveland Philosophic Advisor As this is my first guest post for Pointless Overthinking, it seemed appropriate to talk about philosophy as a way of living. It’s such an interesting idea, and although it differs from how one (usually) hears philosophy discussed today, I’ve noticed the idea (1) in the ancient period of Western... Continue Reading →

Holding a grudge? – Reblog

“When you stay upset on someone, you give your emotional control to that person every time you think about her. You’re allowing that person to control your emotions from a distance. By not forgiving her, you’re allowing that person to control your emotional life as if she would be with you in that moment and... Continue Reading →

The “curse” of being wrong

This is something most people want to avoid. This is basically why so many awesome ideas die. People cannot stand the fact they might be wrong. They just don’t, especially when they strongly believe in a certain idea. This is related to the fact that an idea or an opinion is strongly connected to the... Continue Reading →

Healthier through breathing

Are you familiar with Wim Hof’s method of staying healthy? If you are, you know what I’m talking about. If not, this is going to be interesting. Honestly, I had little information about Wim Hof, but I knew he is a strong healthy individual. Today I came across a video talking about his breathing technique,... Continue Reading →

Can we beat homeostasis? – Reblog

This question has been raised by Natalie and I found it to be a very interesting topic to think about. I think about homeostasis just as I think about comfort zone (even though it’s a biological thing like maintaining the temperature, the level of each hormone released, the blood pressure and so on). Here is a definition... Continue Reading →

Life: Stories and Adventures

There is such a big difference between our lives and the lives other people live. This happens not because we live different lives, but because we live our life from a first person’s perspective, whilst everybody else’s life is seen from a third person’s perspective. We see and perceive other lives through stories and adventures,... Continue Reading →

Motivation through other people – Reblog

I listened to this podcast today where Tom Bilyeu talked with Ed Mylett about some interesting ideas. One of the things that hit me hard was the story about the time Ed Mylett went to the doctor. He said that this doctor had a different approach in addressing the health issues Ed had. Instead of prescribing some meds and getting... Continue Reading →

The Art of Communication

This seems to be a never-ending topic, and no wonder. We “communicate” daily, or at least, that’s what we think we do. But do we really? Lately, I got even more obsessed about the way we communicate (I didn’t think it was possible) and obviously, I started with observing the way I communicate. The main... Continue Reading →

How hopeful is Hope?

I know this is not my best title, but it does the job! So… how hopeful is Hope? No, Hope is not a person, it’s a feeling. The feeling that things will be great someday. Here’s the general opinion about hope: “Hope is an optimistic state of mind that is based on an expectation of... Continue Reading →
