INTERMISSION™: Wednesday Wisdom with Marcus Aurelius
Shining a little light 🔦 on the wisdom of stoic philosopher and Roman emporer, Marcus Aurelius with today's #WednesdayWisdom.
Here are a few gems for you to ponder....
💎 "It is not death that a man should fear, but he should fear never beginning to live." Don't stop living because of fear. 💎 "To live happily is an inward power of the Soul." You don't have to look very far to find happiness. It's already within you. 💎 "Reject your sense of injury and the injury itself disappears." If you're able to see beyond what you perceive is an injury to you and receive it differently, you're then able to let it go and it no longer has any power over you. 👉 Please share with anyone you feel may benefit and I'd love to hear from you.

INTERMISSION™: Wednesday Wisdom
Epicetus is the man!
Born a slave in the 1st century...later becoming a renowned Greek philosopher whose work is relevant today.
He focused on integrity, self-management and personal freedom. Hell, yeah, Epicetus!
His 2 central ideas revolved around:
- Impressions - how we perceive our circumstances which are colored by our beliefs
-Volition - power of choice making us accountable for our actions and state of being based on our impressions
Pretty simple yet incredible impactful when understood.
Here are a few quotes from Epicetus that I shared in the video:
"It's not what happens to you but how you react to it that matters."
"Circumstances don't make the man, they only reveal him to himself."
"We are not disturbed by what happens to us, but by our thoughts about what happens to us." Read those again. Feel into them. Ponder what they mean to you.

INTERMISSION™: Making a Different Choice
He made me so angry. 😡
She hurt my feelings. 😞
They don't get it or me. 😩
Have you ever thought or said these statements?
At one time or another, I'd guess they've crossed your mind.
How many times have you fired off a retort from that place of pain only to realize that you overreacted and later ended up apologizing? 🖐️ Raising my hand.
It's easy to feel hurt and look to place the cause of that feeling on someone else but we are the ones responsible for how we feel.
If you feel pain, it's coming from a wound inside of you that needs attention, healing and nurturing.
You heal it by becoming aware that it's there, asking yourself some tough questions to gain a better understanding and when faced with a similar situation, you're then able to pause and make a different choice in the moment. (For a deeper dive on questions to ask yourself for a better understanding of what the pain is all about pop on over to my post... Compassionate Expression from May 19, 2020 on social or my blog at KarmicKindness.com.) It's important to realize this is a practice so don't beat yourself up if you remain on the same patterns of behavior for a bit before shifting out. It's taken many years to create so its gonna take a little time to unwind.
The beauty lies in the journey and what you learn along the way. 🦋

INTERMISSION™: Wednesday Wisdom - Opportunity for Kindness
"Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for kindness."
I believe this wholeheartedly to be true. 💟
We are all capable of being kind, compassionate and loving if we choose to be. *️⃣ "All cruelty springs from weakness."
"It is a rough road that leads to the heights of greatness."
The above quotes from Seneca illustrate pretty clearly where we are right now as a society. The cruelty we are experiencing stems from weakness and the need for control...to overpower and dominate.
There's no room for that when you operate from a loving, compassionate place.
This rough road will lead to a better world if we can stand strong together. 💪 💪🏽 💪🏿 I invite you to start and end your day in gratitude and...
"Every night before going to sleep, we must ask ourselves: what weakness did I overcome today? What virtue did I acquire?"
And take it one step further by asking... What am I grateful for today?
You can only increase your sense of peace and harmony when you're in gratitude.
What better way to fall asleep?

INTERMISSION™: Wednesday Wisdom - Fun & Stoic Games
(Check out my oracle card theme reading post from Monday) 😁
I talked a bit about Joe Rogan who I wouldn't equate with Stoicism but apparently he's all about it. Who knew? 🤷♂️
And he is quoted as saying, "If you ever start taking things too seriously, just remember that we are talking monkeys on an organic spaceship flying through the universe." Something about that struck me as funny yet profound. And reminded me that we often take life so seriously when it's meant to be fun. 💃 Perhaps if we thought of life as a game or a dance and approached each person and situation as a partner with whom we might learn a new step or refine one we already know, it would feel easier, lighter and more fun.
I mentioned quite a few quotes in the video and won't bore you with all of them here but do want to leave you with the gist and overarching theme... Dont wait to demand the best for yourself.
A bit of struggle is part of the process but it's how you perceive it that makes the biggest difference on how it impacts you overall.
And one final thought from Voltaire...
"Uncertainty is an uncomfortable position. But certainty is an absurd one." So freaking true.
Remember we learn from one another so please share this wisdom with those who may need it today. Xo
