Marcus wrote, ‘When you arise in the morning think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive-to breathe, to think, to enjoy and to love. ‘
Now there’s a meditation.
It might be important to note that Mr Aurelius was the last of what was considered to be in Rome…
‘The 5 Good Emporers. ‘ A period of about 200 years that ended in 180 A.D.
Marcus was also a Stoic Philosopher.

I love how Aurelius’s thoughts still apply to us today, thousands of years later. How interesting that our essence would remain the same regardless of the changes in society and technology. Anyway, thanks for this post!
