Something stoic

Marcus Aurealis
This wonderful image is a panel from Zen Pencil’s Marcus Aurealis comic. Words of wisdom as well as zombies, what could be better! (I love Zen Pencils. His latest creation contains a Frida Kahlo quote)

We are all fighting our own battles, all, as Ram Dass says, just walking each other home. But for the times when those on the walk seem not so helpful and you need something tougher, and this quote from Meditations is a good reminder that even when you meet “the busy-body, the ungrateful, arrogant, deceitful, envious, unsocial”, there is no need to “be injured by any of them, for no one can fix on [you] what is ugly.”

Be strong, fellow travellers!
