Everything lasts for a day, the one who remembers and the remembered.”
Marcus Aurelius, Meditations, 4.35
When we’re motivated to simply do good in the world, without thought to being remembered, we can truly live in the present…
… the very place where our best is needed.
The best we can count on is to be remembered for a day. The rest of those days, and the fantastic story surrounding those days, we just have to release. Let them go.
Take comfort in the good works in front of us in each moment for the fantasy of being remembered is a waste of our time, and only serves our ego… and none of that will make any difference when we’re dead.
