You’re constantly second-guessing yourself. Because instead of choosing the comfortable, straight route, you went with your gut. You chose the haphazard, difficult-to-navigate route, and it's not easy. You feel stuck sometime, but how to get out of it?
Watch this episode of "Ask the Greek Oracle", to find out, an answer informed by Greek Philosophy. Q&A returns with a viewer from Germany who asks, "How will I know I'm on the right path?" You'll be intrigued by the answer, and it may transform your perception for good.
Ancient Greece was a world dominated by men. Men filled the highest positions in society, men fought on the battlefield and men ruled the mightiest empires. However, all these men, from the lowliest peasant to the emperor himself, sought the council and advice of one person – and that person was a woman.
The city of Delphi had long traditions of being the centre of the world; it was said that Zeus himself named it the navel of Gaia. According to legend, a huge serpent, named Python, guarded the spot before it was slain by the infant god Apollo.
When Apollo’s arrows pierced the serpent, its body fell into a fissure and great fumes arose from the crevice as its carcass rotted. All those who stood over the gaping fissure fell into sudden, often violent, trances. In this state, it was believed that Apollo would possess the person and fill them with divine presence.
Have you ever noticed that you life is like a movie or play? We are all actors on a stage...and just like a professional actor, has to learn how to focus entirely on their own performance, we too must focus on our own performance and learn to let go of the rest. We can’t control where we were born or who our parents are, or what color our skin is. We can’t control how other people treat us.
You can only control what you do with the cards you are dealt in life.
You may have noticed that some professional actors, who are very successful, sometimes go on to become producers and directors, once they have done well in their given roles.
You too can go on to control more and more of your life, once you have mastered the roles that you have been thrown at by life.
Yes, alot of things are out of our control. But we have a lot more agency than some people think. We can, through determination and skill, learn how to shape our own destiny. Can we control life? No. But we can shape it through our thoughts and actions.
Epictetus has an interesting metaphor that explains the unique way the Stoics understood free will:
“Keep in mind that you are an actor in a play that is just the way the producer wants it to be. It is short, if that is his wish, or long, if he wants it long. If he wants you to act the part of a beggar, see that you play it skillfully, and similarly, if the part is to be a cripple, or an official, or a private person. Your job is to put on a splendid performance of the role you have been given.”
Here's a short video about my road trip with my friend Janet, to go view my short film "FROM FEAR TO FREEDOM" which was a finalist in the Delphi Film festival (which was held in ancient Corinth this year). Join our conversation in the car, see the resort where we stayed, join the film festival, and check out the amphitheatre and waterfalls.
If this video peaks your interest in my film, then sign up to view it on the PREMIERE (18th Sept) ONLINE, on the occasion of the World Wellness Weekend.

When I was a little girl, I greatly admired Romanian five-time Olympic gold medalist, so I sent her my book when it was published.. (In 1976 at the age of 14, Comăneci was the first gymnast to be awarded a perfect score of 10.0 at the Olympic Games.)
Today, she gives me a PERFECT testimonial for my book "From Fear To Freedom". Watch this video and get your own copy from AMAZON to find out why.
