Be Good

Whatever anyone else does or says, for my part I’m bound to the good.” Marcus Aurelius.

This is of course the whole purpose of any true philosophy, to point you in the direction of the good– good life, good work, good attitude, etc- and most pointedly to give you a method for getting there and then maintaining it. I think living one’s life reflectively is the surest method for seeing how to get the good. We all intrinsically know what it is, we just need to give ourselves time to think and time to really see it. This is the easy part.

Maintaining the good is a whole other story. There lies the struggle, but it is a good fight, and one definitely worth fighting. Fight the good fight.
