We Were Made For Eachother

Today’s Daily Stoic Meditation outlines that we were made for eachother.

We were made for social interaction and community.

“You’ll more quickly find an earthly thing kept from the earth than you will a person cut off from other human beings.” — MARCUS AURELIUS, MEDITATIONS, 9.9.3

We Are Made For Eachother

We are made for social interaction.

We are made to be together.

We are made to share and communicate ideas.

Do not isolate yourself, for social interaction is necessary.

Everything Is Connected

Everything is connected within this universe.

Theres a sense of interconnectedness between even the most unsuspecting things!

One thing, leads to another, affects another, and so on…

Connessione

Connessione is the recognition and appreciation for the inter connectedness of all things and phenomena within this universe.

This is a principle that the artist, scientist and architect Leonardo Da Vinci would frequently practice; he often observed the interconnectedness of things and took notes on it!

You Are Connected

Along with the idea that everything in the universe is connected, that also means that you are connected.

This statement can induce fear, but can also be incredibly powerful.

You are connected.

You are connected, in one way or another, to everything and everyone.

Within this universe, you depend on a great deal of things, and you may not even realise it. You also have a connection with everything, be it grand or small.

You are woven together with people, places, memories and a bunch of other things!

With the idea that you are connected and woven, you should go about the world with kindness.

Prioritising an attitude of kindness and compassion ensures that your life, and the lives of others, is calm, peaceful and a joyful place to be!

Stay Independent

However, this idea of connectedness does not mean that you should throw away your independence and freedom.

You should keep your independence, for it is mutual with everyone in the universe.

Keep your independence and use it for greatness!
