The Living Force
That came to mind, about authority, law is no longer necessary because his acts are an expression of his Will, not an external will.Approaching Infinity said:That's a good, real-life application of the whole Paul/Stoic/IXS dynamic: making the higher aims YOUR OWN aims. Peterson isn't doing what he does because some external authority is telling him what he should or shouldn't do. He is, to the best of his ability, making those higher values his own - and practicing them (again, to the best of his ability).
I think he explains the circuit, having the cake and eating it too. He feeds by feeding others, but in the context of Paul, he is not feeding the flesh he is nurturing the spirit by the act of giving.
It is great to hear it from Peterson
