You Can’t Touch Me
Today’s Daily Stoic Meditation outlines that your mind stays protected.
No matter what happens, nobody can get to your mind.
“If you lay violent hands on me, you’ll have my body, but my mind will remain with Stilpo.”ZENO, QUOTED IN DIOGENES LAERTIUS, LIVES OF THE EMINENT PHILOSOPHERS, 7.1.24
Nobody Can Reach You
Nobody can reach you.
No matter how hard they try, or how weak you may appear, nobody can reach you.
Your mind is enclosed by a fortress, it always stays protected — nobody can reach you.
Recognise your strength.
In dire situations and moments of great pain, do not forget your strength.
This strength, courage and greatness comes from your mind.
You have greatness within you.
You have a great inner strength.
You are courageous, strong and determined.
Do not forget this.
