that it's just the human condition for us to have
troubles and worries and anxieties and
problems don't torture yourself by
worrying about things that aren't in
your control leave that in the hands of
God leave that in the hands of nature
do your best to control the things that
you do have control over yourself your
behavior your intentions and your
actions if you do that you will live a
blessed and happy and virtuous and wise
life you will be a real human being if
you fail to do that
gradually the inclination towards
debauchery evil vice sin put in
theological terms will become greater
and greater and unless you unless you
arrest this slide towards
self-indulgence you will harm yourself
and you will harm the people around you
no rational being wishes to harm
themselves no rational being wishes to
harm the people around them because of
that if we were to be rational it is the
same thing as making us good and that is
the same thing as making us free not
free in the sense of political freedom
being a slave or free man but free in
the sense of being autonomous making our
own decisions making laws for ourselves
free in the sense of no longer being a
slave of our passions things pushed
about by our feelings being a toy that
gets messed with by arbitrary
things that are really beneath the human
condition that are mere emotion if we
want to be fully human we must be fully
free and that means fully rational and
that means fully good accept no
substitutes is what Marcus Aurelius says
