242: Align with Reality: The Enchiridion 26-28
This week we cover the Enchiridion 26-28. We are told to try to understand the will of Nature, to practice recognizing things that happen to others, and to understand they will happen to us as well. By doing this we can start to handle life with equanimity. Sunday Stoic Coin: https://www.etsy.com/listing/711901704/stoic-challenge-coin-persist-and-resist?ref=shop_home_feat_1&frs=1
