All Is Fluid




"The Universe is change. Life is opinion."

This is one of my favourite quotations from the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius.

This particular translation is by Stephen Hanselman for his and Ryan Holiday's book of 366 stoic meditations, The Daily Stoic. For a few years I read through the daily meditation of the day until this year when I switched to Robert Greene's "The Daily Laws."


In the commentary, Ryan Holiday muses, "Our understanding of what something isis just a snapshot - an ephemeral opinion... Old memories are replaced by new memories. Are we still the same people? Are the people around us the same? Nothing is exempt from this fluidity, not even the things we hold most sacred."

Let Old Habits Die - Before You Do

Problems arise when we become resistant to change, stuck in old habits, old ways of doing business, that, now that the times have changed, no longer serve us... Eventually, those rigid habits will also melt or crumble or flow away with the passage of time and change, so why wait for death to remove them along with you? Why not let them go now and renew yourself in new and more vital patterns of life?
