Life of Virtue
Can you imagine a world where everyone had this standard of living? What would this world look like? I believe most people strive for good but lose it in the matrix of life. Living a life of virtue isn't easy with all of the life's distractions. The older we get the more we see and the less we see. What if every day we saw virtue and goodness - of joy and calm - of self-love and worthiness with everything around us? All living things working together with virtue as the end goal.
How about doing this today - As the day passes by seeing the things around you as good and honorable - the trees, the leaves, the people, the water, the animals. See if it makes you feel something new.
"If we judge good and evil only the things in the power of our own choice, then there is no room left for blaming gods or being hostile to others." Marcus Aurelius
