You Are In Control

If you are one who feels you are just a skin encapsulated bag of tendons and bones, victim to the world and outer circumstances, stressed out is only the beginning of describing how you must feel. But if you are rooted in spirit, in consciousness, your religious faith that says you are greater than your body, these times are no more threatening than a peaceful morning sunrise on the beach in solace or with your cherished partner, family, or friends. Though we cannot escape our outer word circumstances, we do control how we respond to these influences and how we interact with those around us.

“Self-control is strength, calmness is mastery. You have to get to a point where your mood doesn’t shift based on the insignificant actions of someone else. Don’t allow others to control the direction of your life. Don’t allow your emotions to overpower your conscious intelligence.”

– Marcus Aurelius, Philosopher
