Aristotle stated that the VIRTU 'is more CONTAGIOUS than vice, provided that it is told, that it is brought to the attention.

For the philosopher, Virtue is the faculty that enables one to perform actions that are free of excess and defect so as to obtain the right balance: “in medio stat virtus” the Latins used to say. It is exactly the opposite of the concept of "mediocrity" for which we are satisfied with something just enough. Virtue, on the other hand, is excellence, the result of precision work. Aristotle gives the example of archery in which two qualities are at stake: the one that allows you to shoot and the one that allows you to hit; on the one hand, strength, power, energy, vitality; on the other hand, balance, precision, weighting, reflection. Strength and Balance together constitute the two fundamental aspects of the VIRTU '. In times that are certainly not as easy as these, when walking on unsafe paths, there is a great need to find solid support points that make us see beyond. Aristotle, like many other sages, shows us the signs that indicate the right path, like those we see painted on the rocks when we go to the mountains.

So, watch out for the signs! Let's go in search of these teachings, let's take advantage of this “Lenten” “quarantine” to read, reflect, meditate, nourish ourselves with things that last over time. If we want to face crises with strength and balance to get out of them quickly and well, we need to return to cultivating Virtues (wisdom, justice, fortitude, temperance, are the most important). 

So: GET INFECTED by the Virtues !!! In order to be yourself a very contagious propagator…. In this regard, I recommend reading a book that has just come out entitled "The strength to be better", subtitle "The happiness of rediscovering and practicing the virtues", from which I took some thoughts that I have expressed here. The author is Vito Mancuso, a philosopher and theologian whom I really appreciate and whom I had the pleasure of meeting during a week of spiritual training in Trentino. In the next few days I will have the opportunity, in my role as Positive Provoker, to launch these CONTAGIOUS thoughts and other practical suggestions into the air in the Live Social radio broadcast broadcast on RADIO News 24.

And let's remember that Fear has been an essential mechanism for our survival as a species, but if it becomes excessive and leads to Panic, it makes us lose the clarity and effectiveness of our responses. So a little healthy self-irony to play down can help to find the right balance of which Aristotle speaks.

Those who want to do some training, watch this Pill in Video in which I play to deflate Ego and Fears ...
