To journal about the stoic way.
To be present in my conscious awareness of being stoic.
It is the good life and doing no harm.
To state the principles and steep myself in the conversation and my voice to discover my way.
Much like the morning and evening stoic routine, it is a form or means to become conscious and discover the here and now, what is important part of my life.
To discipline myself in the art of living, is to discover my next step.
In a way, the reward is doing the step forward, committing to the choice, a better way to move now.
Letting go of the desire, or tolerating the aversion in whatever form it manifests.
A bit like Sting’s song about ‘every breath you take’. But do no harm.
