Thanks for sharing, Erik.
It was interesting for me to learn that the samurai had similarities to the stoics in their philosophy.
I also found that “The creation balanced out the destruction and death” is a great way to illustrate the balance for a warrior. It made me think of this the other way around. For a person who spends most of her time creating… would she find her inner balance with a “destructive” hobby? An unorthodox way of finding a balance – but would it work?
