I Finally Crossed Scuba Diving Off My Bucket List — Bucket List Publications

I’ve been talking about scuba diving for the entirety of Bucket List Publications. It was on my first bucket list when I created the site and it reminded on the list year after year. The fear consumed me and took over. Failure after failure, I thought I’d never actually accomplish that one check mark. I […]

Le test des trois passoires, Socrate

Socrate avait une haute opinion de la sagesse.

Quelqu’un vient un jour trouver le grand philosophe et lui dit :

Sais-tu ce que je viens d’apprendre sur ton ami?

— Un instant, répondit Socrate. Avant que tu me racontes, j’aimerais te faire passer un test, celui des 3 passoires :

— Les 3 passoires?

Mais oui, reprit Socrate. Avant de me raconter toutes sortes de choses sur les autres, il est bon de prendre le temps
de filtrer ce que l’on aimerait dire.

C’est ce que j’appelle le test des 3 passoires.

La première passoire est celle de la vérité.

As-tu vérifié si ce que tu veux me dire est vrai?

– Non. J’en ai simplement entendu parler…

– Très bien. Tu ne sais donc pas si c’est la vérité.

Essayons de filtrer autrement en utilisant une deuxième passoire.

La deuxième passoire est celle de la bonté.

Ce que tu veux m’apprendre sur mon ami, est-ce quelque chose de bon ?

– Ah non ! Au contraire.

– Donc, continua Socrate, tu veux me raconter de mauvaises choses sur lui et tu n’es même pas certain si elles sont vraies.

Tu peux peut-être encore passer le test, car il reste une passoire.

La troisième passoire est celle de l’utilité.

Est-il utile que tu m’apprennes ce que mon ami aurait fait ?

– Non. Pas vraiment.

Alors, conclut Socrate, si ce que tu as à me raconter n’est ni vrai, ni bien, ni utile…

Pourquoi vouloir me le dire ?

Art of living

 »The Master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both. ».- Zen Buddhist

My mentor Bruce Lee On toughness

A fight is not won by one punch or kick. Either learn to endure or hire a bodyguard.

Forget about winning and losing; forget about pride and pain. Let your opponent graze your skin and you smash into his flesh; let him smash into your flesh and you fracture his bones; let him fracture your bones and you take his life. Do not be concerned with escaping safely – lay your life before him.
