Did you know that you can get unshakable freedom and inner peace through
Greek Philosophy? When we see the bigger picture, we can more easily find
solutions and things begin to ‘click’. A great idea can come from this raised
The great Roman Emperor, Marcus Aurelius, who studied Greek philosophy
wrote in his meditations...
“How beautifully Plato put it. Whenever you want to talk about people, it’s best to take a bird’s eye-view and see everything all at once - of gatherings, armies, farms, weddings and divorces, births and deaths, noisy courtrooms or silent spaces, every foreign people, holidays, memorials, markets - all blended together and arranged in a pairing of opposites.” Click on the image below to watch the video.
In order to remember this perspective Marcus Aurelius told himself each day:
“When you wake up in the morning, tell yourself: the people I deal with today will be meddling, ungrateful, arrogant, dishonest, jealous and surly. They are like this because they can't tell good from evil. But I have seen the beauty of good, and the ugliness of evil, and have recognized that the wrongdoer has a nature related to my own - not of the same blood and birth, but the same mind, and possessing a share of the divine. And so none of them can hurt me. No one can implicate me in ugliness. Nor can I feel angry at my relative, or hate him. We were born to work together like feet, hands and eyes, like the two rows of teeth, upper and lower. To obstruct each other is unnatural. To feel anger at someone, to turn your back on him: these are unnatural.”
