CALILO PHILOSOPHY

PODCAST

Alpha Truth

Happiness

Weaknesses

Self-knowledge

At the end of every day the truth of who we are
brings us the bill to pay
for every word we said and every action we did during it.
When we pay it in full, we see dreams at night
and when we don’t, we see nightmares.

From Quote THE BILL OF THE LAST TRUTH 2

How can one find happiness? Is happiness something you find or something you create yourself? Can we be successful and happy at the same time? How can we become more connected with our truth? These are just a few questions and topics that the Calilo Philosophy podcast strives to answer.

Created by Angelos Michalopoulos, the show centres around its philosophy of “Calilo”, which stands for “Create a Life you Can Fall in love With”, and aims to start a conversation on the ways we can all become more aware, conscious and most importantly, happier human beings. He believes that life doesn’t come with an instruction book… we have to write it ourselves, one mistake at a time; thus, aiming to share what he has learned so far in his own journey of Calilo through this podcast with the hope that his words will provide you with comfort, optimism, truth whenever and if you ever need them.

New episodes will be realised weekly, covering a number of topics such as: self-knowledge, happiness, success, self-acceptance, negativity, human relationships.

Follow the show on instagram @calilo_philosophy and share with us your thoughts.

At the end of every day the truth of who we are
brings us the bill to pay
for every word we said and every action we did during it.
When we pay it in full, we see dreams at night
and when we don’t, we see nightmares.

LISTEN

Why be like lions living the life of cockroaches?
We fail because the demands of greatness are huge
and of failure, none.
We are sad because the demands of happiness are great
and of misery, none.

LISTEN

Thankfully, there will never be a shortage of people
who want to build a world where a smile defeats a swearword,
where the truth of a “yes”
defeats the hypocrisy and dishonesty of a “maybe”,
and where the compassion out of which a caress is woven
defeats the hypocrisy the most frightened parts
of our worst-selves keep producing.

LISTEN

I will live by doing my best to be as honest as my soul,
because every time I stood to be as real as my truth,
as emotionally solid as my soul
and as pure as my beliefs,
I realised what it meant to be so in love with your life,
and so proud of who you are,
that you don’t want to be anyone else,
no matter how much more powerful,
attractive and victorious you could become

LISTEN

Beauty is born to defeat the sadness that ugliness produces.

LISTEN

Life is the celebration of beauty,
but even more so, the celebration of an ugliness
that was never born because it was explained.
Every time we manage to explain to ourselves
what makes us feel ugly,
a celebration of beauty begins.

LISTEN

The more we love, the less we fear.
When we’re not afraid to love,
we fear nothing.

LISTEN

Liars have all it takes to be sad
because, by fearing the truth,
they end up fearing their own soul that produces it.

LISTEN

To protect ourselves from what we shouldn’t know,
we live by learning a lot and forgetting even more.

LISTEN

We live surrendering our happiness to the unknown.
To protect our delusions from the truth,
and our ego from its next rendezvous with defeat,
we continuously get better at producing the unknown
by forgetting what we know, or not realising what we’ve learned,
instead of demolishing it by learning it.

LISTEN

We've made ignorance our favourite excuse for not living.

LISTEN

Nobody becomes happy accidentally.
Happy are the people who don’t believe in their sadness.

The reason I write

December 05 2021
personal

Seeing the ugliness, whatever form it takes - malice, misery, aggression, negativity - constantly defeating the happiness of the people around me and seeing how much useless misery is born in the world and how much useful happiness is wasted, I grabbed in my hand the most eager "why" I could find and started writing, in the chance that I can defeat ugliness by explaining it. I wanted to understand how we've become so good at being sad, how we've become so good at not only at abandoning the beauty of our soul but asking its ugliness to show the world around us who we are. Every time I struggled with the question of who gives birth to my misery, I stumbled upon my own weaknesses. By writing for others, I learned myself. Nothing is accidental, not even anything that seems to happen by accident. It is no coincidence that there is so much sadness in the world. It exists because, by choosing to do what is easy and not what is right, we don't try to learn our weaknesses as well as we should to prevent them from producing misery or magnifying the misery someone else's weaknesses have produced.
The more I wrote, the more I realized the value of the truth we should tell ourselves in achieving our happiness. Maybe it's time to say no to the lies we tell ourselves and finally tell the truth. This way, we will build self-knowledge, become as self-sufficient as we need to disarm our weaknesses and become happy. Every time we tell the truth to ourselves, we create self-knowledge and every time we lie, we tear it down. We all want to be happy, but we aren’t willing to do everything needed to deserve our happiness. Happiness is the disarming of misery. How can we feel happy though, when we aren't willing to defend our happiness from the onslaught of the ugliness of the world around us? How do we want to live a happy life when we fill it with ugliness? That's what we need to change. CALILO. Create a life you can fall in love with. However, the more we praise change, the more we remain the same, because we know that change often has more truth in it than we can bear. That's why we love to hide in the routine so much.
Life doesn't come with an instruction book. We have to write it ourselves, one mistake at a time. Self-knowledge is the mother of happiness. When we get to know ourselves, we will feel as strong as we need to be to disarm our weaknesses and therefore be able to create beauty by neutralizing the ugliness within us and the ugliness around us. In this way, we will be able to change our lives for the better. When we learn ourselves well enough to disarm our weaknesses, we will allow our strengths to make us as successful and happy as they can. We will therefore create a life that has as little ugliness as possible, a life that has so much beauty that we will want to fall in love with.
Let's tell ourselves the truth in order to drive away the ugliness we have been producing for so many years with our lies. The lies we tell ourselves create ugliness, which in turn, leads to misery. On the contrary, truth creates beauty that leads to happiness. We all have beauty in our souls, as long as we aren't afraid of the truth from which it is made.
Let's live by translating the beauty of our soul into happiness, and not by translating its ugliness into the pain and misery of the people around us. We will then be able to create a world that is as real as it needs to be to feel so beautiful that it overflows with happiness.
