Two lessons from Meditations – Book VI (IM 812)

The following are the two lessons from the book Meditations by Marcus Aurelius which I find intriguing: You take things you can’t control as “good” and “bad.” And of course when the “bad” things happen or the “good” one don’t you blame the God and feel hatred for the people responsible – or those you…
