Memento Mori

Memento Mori literally means “Remember you must die”. You may ask, “What does this have to do with enlarging my life?” The short answer is….. everything. In life we tend to postpone things as if we have an unlimited amount of time to accomplish our goals, dreams etc. The truth is that we don’t know how much time we have left whether we are old or young. We just don’t have that answer. One thing is for certain and that is one day we all die. it’s just the reality of living. We can either embrace it and except it, or we can choose to be in denial about it. Either way death comes to us all.

“It is not the things themselves that disturb men, but their judgements about these things. For example, death is nothing dreadful, or else Socrates too would have thought so, but the judgement that death is dreadful, this is the dreadful thing.” Epictetus The Encheiridion 5

So once we get over the fear of death, at that time we can actually answer the call to “Enlarge Your Life” and begin the

“What then do you wish to be doing when you are found by death? I for my part would wish to be found doing something which belongs to a man, beneficent, suitable to the general interest, noble.” Epictetus Discourses Book 4

It is the Philosophy of this website, that our purpose for being here is to do good and live a life of virtue as much as we possibly can. “Enlarge Your Life” is not merely about acquiring greater possessions and making larger sums of money, it is about becoming a better person day by day along the way as we progress through life knowing we will eventually return to that place from which we came.
