Wealth and Freedom are Free

Wealth and Freedom are Free

“Freedom isn’t secured by filling up on your heart’s desire but by removing your desire.” Epictetus, Discourses 4.1.75

“There are two ways to be wealthy – to get everything you want or to want everything you have. Which is easier right here and right now? The same goes for freedom. If you chafe and fight and struggle for more, you will never be free. If you could find and focus on the pockets of freedom you already have? Well then you’d be free right here, right now”

Today’s wonderful ‘meditation wisdom’ from The Daily Stoic by Ryan Holiday. What a gift for a Monday morning to remind us that what we are seeking is probably already within our grasp. Just reflect for a moment about things for which you already grateful and when you think about it, aren’t these already as good as those for which you strive?
