You might have read/heard something like this somewhere but we never really pay attention to it and we continue to do what we always do.
"Meditations" by Marcus Aurelius is not a unique book, all the things written inside it are taken from daily life examples and the problems one faces in their entire lifetime.
After reading this book all you will realize that everything is around you yet you never pay attention towards it. In fact, this book is a collection of all the personal notes of the author to himself.
He created a philosophy which explores through some insights of real world which are inspiring but not unique.
This book can help a person as a morale compass for long term and as a source of short term motivation when needed.
Most importantly, "Meditations" is all about bringing in some practices in our daily life routine to help achieve what we desire most. It doesn't ask for much but few moments of solitude.
I can mention some Values defined in this book which can help one to live by:
-Humble, Simple, Accepting, Energetic, Persistent, Pragmatic, Having integrity, purposeful, Being an observer, Seizing the present, Forgiving, Rational etc.
Lastly, one method which can help you to simplify your life is by practicing one thing everyday in your life is meditation on paper: One should take at least 15 minutes of time to write on a piece of paper about all the problems he/she is facing, all the challenges or write whatever comes to your mind. The only thing is you cannot stop until the time runs out. When you write with your hand there's something behind it.
I hope this review helps you to learn something about your life.
"It never ceases to amaze me: we all love ourselves more than other people, but care more about their opinion than our own.”
The book takes a reader through various life stages of the author, in quite a philosophical way. “Dwell on the beauty of life. Watch the stars, and see yourself running with them.” Marcus has written ancient wisdom is quite simpler terms and I have been attempting to read more about stoicism and this book is a must-read. The book’s narration is like that of a diary that Marcus has written for himself. Though when it is about philosophy, people give more importance to Greek philosophers but the Romans were more realistic and behaviouristic in their approach.
“Waste no more time arguing about what a good man should be. Be one”
His quotes say it all.
Seen some people complaining about print quality. I see it good. Also, some one complained about the spelling mistakes :). Note that the contents in this book are translations happened on 18th century. Old format (and style - larger sentences) of English is used. When you are familiar with those words (countable though), it would be easy read.
Plus it's not an easy read as the language is quite old style making it difficult to read
I just started reading the book and already feel irritated with the poor editing of the book.
Basically.......it’s .....food for thought ......like a cornucopia of deep thoughts and emotions......emanating ancient wisdom.
