He Who Lives in Harmony With Himself Lives in Harmony With the Universe – Marcus Aurelius

Is there a place you can go within your mind to get away from the stress, the anxiety, and the worry?  A place that invokes both harmony and bliss?  That place, resides in the life happening all around you right now. 

Try to set aside 5 minutes each morning just to be still.  Center yourself by simply observing the environment that surrounds you.  Listen to the songs of the birds; the smattering of rain upon the rooftops. Notice the wind as it gently sways the trees and shifts the leaves.  Hear the sounds of cars passing by; the water flowing downstream, the people chatting.

Sit, just as a piece of life and observe, listen, feel.  When we take this time to just be, the outer world comes alive and brings peace to our inner world.

Next time you find yourself in an anxious or worried state, turn your focus outward.  Pause and observe, breathe and get present.  Allow the life that is happening around you to center you. 

All life is connected in some way, remember this, and let it bring a peaceful stillness to your turbulent unsettled mind.

  1. Your suggestion is such a good one, especially in the stressful, busy lives so many of us lead. My husband (the philosophy major) introduced me to Marcus Aurelius about a year ago–and I find his philosophy so positive and inspiring.

  2. You begin my day with a smile, all the time. Thank you.

  3. This is great advice! Thanks for sharing!

  4. I try to find time every day for music. Whether it’s just listening or singing, there is time for music which speaks to my soul. Also, the daily ritual of getting my dream written every day, even if it’s just the cliff notes version. helps get me set for the day. Lots of little things throughout the day.

  5. I love Marcus Aurelius! That guy new what he was talking about. And you, too 🙂 Thanks for this beautiful reminder.

  6. I agree, Marcus Aurelius was a man ahead of his time…. lots of good advice! Your reminder spurred me to buy his book MEDITATATIONS. Maybe it is time I listened to my wife and took up yoga..

  7. Probably a specific physical space (as we all have to and should handle real life issues from parenting to career advancement), but a frame of mind that we can call on (with practice of course!) to reset, re-focus and re-energize!

  8. Lovely Marcus. Thank you. Just what I needed to read.

  9. This was just what I needed this morning. Thank you. x
