Special Edition: She's Inspired By

It’s been three months since The Teacher Philosopher dropped its presence in the online space. Part of my work here is to consistently be reading, exploring and processing new information or knowledge which inspires what I write about.

I would love to share with you some podcasts, books, and articles that I have been enjoying over the past three months. Whenever I engage with new content, I contemplate critically on the ideas that are being presented which allows me to filter, then absorb the knowledge better and gain a more insightful understanding. Sometimes, I will sit with varying opinions for a couple of days and other times, I write down my thoughts when I am journaling to develop coherence between current and new ideas. No matter how I process this information, the act of meaningfully engaging with it really pushes me to actively consider beyond what I know and believe to be true, hence my worldview and perspectives are constantly in flux. It is dynamic. I urge you to do the same with these recommendations. In a world of fleeting content consumption, be the rarity by paying careful attention whilst digesting and distilling wisdom.

Morysetta is a Romanian artist who explores the human mind and social behaviour in her digital artworks that she began creating in 2018. With an intriguing blend of humanistic and outer space qualities throughout each artwork, it invites the viewer to let their mind wander.

It is beautiful to know that my ideas about the world are constantly being re-framed and challenged. By constantly shifting my mind, it helps me improve mentally and spiritually. Take what you need from here, process it carefully and ponder. Experiment with some of these ideas because you’ll never know until you try. For all those who have supported me in any way shape or form, I am deeply grateful for you and your curiosity and open-mindedness to think philosophically about the world. May we continue this journey together, striving for a more peaceful and tranquil life.
