My dear children, friends,
We live in a complex world of human interactions. Most of the time, we react to others by unconsciously combining events with our thoughts, beliefs, and feelings. This, however, can lead us to wrong and untrue views. But these opinions of others not only record the present moment but also shape the next moment of our lives, simultaneously influencing the flow of our daily lives.
So I want to tell you a story about the moral philosopher Socrates and the sieve. One day, as Socrates was walking on the Acropolis, he met an acquaintance of his. He whispered in his ear, that he had something very important to reveal to him about one of his students.
Socrates, looking him in the eyes, informed him that he decided to apply the test of the triple "golden pot" i.e. the sieve, before listening to his great revelation.
- "What do you mean;" asked his acquaintance curiously.
- "Before you reveal to me what you heard, I would like to sift through the information," answered Socrates.
- "How is this going to be done;" asked his acquaintance.
- "First, with the chrysalis of truth. Are you sure what you want to tell me is true?" asked Socrates.
- "Well, not exactly. I just heard about it," answered his acquaintance.
- "Well, you are not sure whether what you are about to reveal to me is true or false," concluded Socrates.
His acquaintance felt ashamed of his lack of clarity.
-"Let us examine with the second chrysalis, that of kindness. Is the so-called event something positive for my student? asked Socrates.
- "Positive? Probably the opposite," replied his acquaintance.
- "So you want to convey to me something negative about my student, without being sure that it is true?" Socrates clarified.
Socrates' acquaintance felt ashamed and embarrassed.
- "Nevertheless," continued Socrates, "there is a third sieve, the chrysalis of usefulness. Is the so-called fact you want to tell me of any use to me?"
- "No, I don't think so," answered his acquaintance.
- "Well", concluded Socrates, "since what you are going to tell me is neither true, nor positive, nor useful, why should I listen to it?".
Socrates' acquaintance felt ashamed and left, having learned an important lesson and a very good advice for us, that: we do not accuse, we do not spread rumors, we do not gossip.
  My friends, 
the way we see the world and others around us determines the way we experience it. Every small change in our perception is a step towards changing our reality, creating a richer and more harmonious environment, both for ourselves and for those around us. Similarly to the cardamom, our judgment must also work, at all levels, which will do the necessary cleaning, and filtering, where the unnecessary will be left out and that can only be good.
    When we redefine our perception of truth, usefulness, and goodness, we open our reality to new possibilities while taking an important step toward creating a complete personality that will move forward with balance and virtue in life.
My thoughts are with you.

- Socrates (470 BC/469 –399 BC) Greek Athenian philosopher, who highlighted philosophy as a tool for moral and spiritual development. He is considered the founder of Western philosophy and is one of the first moral philosophers. Socrates defiantly proclaimed 
«ἓν οἶδα, ὅτι οὐδὲν οἶδα»" a vision, for there is no vision." When Charephon, a friend of Socrates, went to the oracle at Delphi and asked the god Apollo to show him the wisest man, he received the answer that Socrates was "the wisest of all.""ἁπάντων σοφώτατος" He taught without pay, exploring moral, religious, and social issues. He was accused of introducing "new demons" (ie disrespecting the gods) and corrupting the young. Condemned to death, and refusing to escape, he drank hemlock with unshakable calmness and divine cheerfulness. 
Socrates made ignorance and irony weapons of thought, inquiry, and philosophical approach, while he focused through the inductive method and ethics on the examination of human nature, virtue, and character. The method of thought that Socrates "invented" was dialectic and midwifery through which he posed questions that seemed almost simplistic leading the interlocutor to the general truth that exists regardless of circumstances and conditions.
For testing and drawing conclusions, Socratic questioning is also a method similar to the techniques applied by counselors and life coaches.
- Sieving: method of physical separation of heterogeneous mixtures containing a component in gaseous, liquid, or solid form, whose parts are larger than a minimum size. Sifting is done with the sieve, otherwise cressara.
cressara. Sieve or sieve: a tool with small holes, the size of which allows material of the selected size to pass through and what does not fit, to be left out. In the villages it was mainly used in cooking, to sift the flour for bread.
