Marcus Aurelius Mediation Minute

“It’s as if … eyes demanded a fee for seeing, or … feet for walking. These parts of … body are formed for a specific purpose, and by working according to their inherent makeup come into their own. So too we are created … to act benevolently, and when we have done something helpful or in some way conducive to the common interest, we have acted in harmony with our own inherent makeup, and also come into our own.” — Marcus Aurelius
