Daily Stoic: My Part in the World

 Today's meditation is about our place in the world. The ancient Greeks vaguely knew that there were atoms and that all thing were made of them. They saw this and believed an interconnected cosmos which underpinned that every person and action was part of a larger system. Even evil was there for a reason.

Whatever anyone does or says, for my part I'm bound to the good. In the same way an emerald or golf or purple might always  proclaim "whatever anyone does or says, I must be what I am and show my true colors.'

Marcus Aurelius

Of course, my true color is not emerald or gold or purple. This idea is that despite the circumstances we must always show our true colors and best side. 

FYI - My aura is orange.
