contemplations …

“Erasing all fancies, keep on saying to yourself, ‘It lies in my own hands to ensure that no viciousness, cupidity, or turmoil of any kind finds a home in this soul of mine;  it lies with me to preceive all things in their true light, and to deal with each of them as it merits.’  Remember this authoritiy, which is nature’s gift to you.”    Marcus Aurelius   Meditations book 8:29

What does that ancient verse from the meditations of Marcus Aurelius mean to you?
