“Hold sacred your capacity for understanding. For in it is all – that our ruling principle will not allow anything to enter that is either inconsistent with nature or with the constitution of a logical creature. It’s what demands due diligence, care for others and obedience to God.” Marcus Aurelius, Meditations.
We are able to use reason and logic to make sense of the world around us. With that ability to understand comes the power of choice. What do you want to do now? Stop awhile and think about what is now, and remember that the past and the future are not in your control. Use logic and reason to accept the situation for what it is – not in your control; be grateful for those things that you want and have, and for those things you don’t want and don’t have. And use these powers of reason and logic wisely for the benefit of everyone.
