More Wisdom from Marcus

     Marcus Aurelius' Meditations has a wealth of short, pithy thoughts.  Sadly, my edition is quite old and I don't have one to recommend to you.  Still, these are some gems worth contemplating:
It is your duty to leave another man's wrongful act where it is.
All things are changing: and you yourself are in continuous mutation and, in a manner, in continuous destruction, and the universe too. 
If it is not right, do not do it; if it is not true, do not say it.
I have often wondered how it is that every man loves himself more than all the rest of men, but yet sets less value on his own opinion of himself than on the opinion of others.
No longer talk about the kind of man a good man ought to be, but be one.
Whatever may happen to you, it was prepared for you from all eternity; and the implication of causes was from eternity spinning the thread of your being, and of that which is incident to it.
     Whew!  That's food for thought, isn't it?

A Quote and a Prayer

     Sometimes it's nice to revisit old friends.  I've been rereading Marcus Aurelius' Meditations and was struck by this quote:

The universe is transformation; life is a succession of views.

     Here's my prayer:  When, O Universe, will my view include the face of my Twin Soul?

Lousy Title, Great Show

     Don't you ever wish you could dope-slap (in a Zen sort of way, of course) some of the people in TV land?  Here's my new pet peeve:  there's a great show on LMN that has a lousy and misleading title and the worst title music ever.  It's called "The Ghost Inside My Child" and when I first saw it on the TV listings, I fully expected it to be about exorcisms or some such eerie nonsense, and I avoided watching it.  Then, one day I was making dinner and turned it on while I was cutting vegetables and was so engrossed that I ended up slicing my finger badly enough to require me a trip to the local urgent care. 

     I think the dopes trying to market the program wanted to play up the scariness factor, but in fact it's a well-produced show about children who remember their past lives and the families who have to come to terms with that.  The stories are engaging, the family members' anguish and puzzlement real, and on the whole, something worth seeing.

     Just put the knife down before you watch it.  We don't want any more accidents.
