Contemplating Seneca #12

Ice Ages. Volcanic Eruptions. Earthquakes. Plagues. Famine. The Fury of Mother Nature. The Cosmic Forces of the Universe.

As humans, what can we control?

We can remember the past and learn how to possibly cope with the unavoidable.

We can be present in the moment monitoring our perceptions, controlling our emotions, and acting with intention.

We can look to the future and prepare the best we can. We can hope for the best but realize that our greatest plans are still at the mercy of powers greater than us.

Humans are resilient. They have survived the calamities of the past. They can overcome the threats of tomorrow.
