On Stoicism


“What is bad luck? Opinion. What are conflict, dispute, blame, accusation, irreverence, and frivolity? They are all opinions, and more than that, they are opinions that lie outside of our own reasoned choice, presented as if they were good or evil. Let a person shift their opinions only to what belongs in the field of their own choice, and I guarantee that person will have peace of mind, whatever is happening around them.”


This quote encourages readers to let go of their opinions and view things as they are, without judgment or prejudice. It suggests weeding out opinions from our lives to free ourselves from feeling upset and angry. This meditation aims to free us from the limitations of dogma, entitlement, expectations, and ignorance.
