Getting Paid for playing … (Part II)

As I promised here is the second part for my blog about the importance of playing and this quote: ‘A sensitive person gets paid for playing. That’s the art of Life.’ Here is the part I  of this post if you haven’t read it yet.

So as I said in the previous post there are some traps that are disguised as play. We can find them everywhere (for some reason they are more common in wealthy countries)

Most of the time when people are talking about ‘play’, they say it in a transactional way. ‘Let’s play so we can be more […]

Getting paid for playing… (Part I)

This is my compass and what I have written in my magic notebook.

My ‘Magic Notebook’

‘A sensitive person gets paid for playing. That’s the art of life’ Alan Watt

This is what I try to live by, this is my compass. When I feel that I’m not playing and having fun with what I’m doing I reevaluate and check with myself. Since I was in school I was a fan of quotes. I even subscribed to a daily email with an inspiring quote (when email was just starting haha!) and made my favourite 50 quotes (one day I’ll translate them and […]

How to finish a cycle …


I still remember the day that I finished my thesis degree, it was a really happy day! The feeling that it was finally over, all those years of study, working, writing. Finally, I was going to get my electrical engineer degree! I took me around 7 years and a half to get my degree. I did enjoy it a lot though, there were the best years of my time there.

By that time, I started to read tons of books, I was going to magic classes every week, I took storytelling classes, I was playing football very often, took […]

The real secrets

When I lived with my parents in Chile, I used to watch lots of movies and TV shows with my dad. We saw some good and some very bad ones, but all made lovely memories.
Usually, during the movie, my dad would find lots of inconsistencies, mistakes or things that “are not like that in real world”, making him lose interest in what we were watching. Most of the time he was right, someone made a stupid decision, something that was physically impossible happened or it was just complete nonsense.
Of course there are terrible movies and those mistakes are just […]

Eudemonia: Happiness, Meaning and Magic

Welcome to Eudemonia!
Eudemonia is a blog of ideas related to philosophy, magic, happiness, work, virtue, purpose and other thoughts.
What is Eudemonia?
“Eudemonia or Eudaimonia is often translated as “happiness,” but that’s a bit misleading. Eudaimonia in Greek:
Eu-: good
Daimon: soul or “self.”
In Greek philosophy, Eudaimonia means achieving the best conditions possible for a human being, in every sense–not only happiness, but also virtue, morality, and a meaningful life. It was the ultimate goal of philosophy: to become better people—to fulfill our unique potential as human beings.”
Why write blog?
2 reasons.
A selfish one first haha, because i like the idea of it. I’m […]
