Triadic Philosophy Glossary - Amor Fati ( Love Your Life)

Amor fati means love your life
Amor fati  was Nietzsche's term for the sense that
if life consisted solely of this moment
you would love it
and be content to relive it
Amor fati is linked in Nietzsche to his ideas of 
recurrence and eternal return

Triadic Philosphy embraces
amor fati  
but in the context of  continuity
of moving forward
of chronology
eyes open to the present
seeing what is there
right under our noses
Seizing every present 
as a point at which you sense that truth and beauty
are identical 
as Keats makes clear in his
Ode to A Grecian Urn

Amor fati is unforced
It comes to mind
when heralded
It is dolce far niente
(sweet doing nothing)
in the midst of
whatever you are doing
Loving your life relates to 
the sphere of
all action
in Triadic Philosophy
The Aesthetic
the theater of life is meant 
to fuse truth and beauty 
at every point
not as some compulsive posturing
but as your confident acceptance
of the tendency and purpose of the cosmos

"Sto Perigiali" One of the Surpassingly Best Tunes Theodorakis Has Written

A Setting for a Poem "Denial" Beloved by the Greek People by the Nobel Prize Winning Poet Giorgos Seferis
The remarkable video at the link above is of a performance of "Sto perigiali" Mario Frangoulis and Mikis Theodorakis in 2001.

Frangoulis and Theodorakis are joined by musicians, including two bouzouki players, and a very large audience that is completely familiar with the words. The audience joins in at Frangoulis' prompt.

This is my very favorite Theodorakis melody. Those who know Theodorakis only for his "Zorba" music are in for a treat. When I was in Athens in 1966, for a short period of study with Constantinos Doxiadis, I knew nothing of Theodorakis. But about five years later, my friend Irene Vassos sang "Sto perigiali" to us. I have never gotten the tune out of my mind.

Later, when Irene joined our group to form a travelling company performing "New Rain", I learned to pick out a …
