... Virtue is the only good; there is no certain good without virtue; and virtue resides in our nobler part, which is the rational one.”
Seneca, Moral Letters, 71.32
When it comes to our own minds, however, as long we can remain disciplined and consistent in our good actions, honest feelings, and expansive, inclusive thoughts, we can expect truth and steadfast judgements to pour forth from them.
At the end of things, when accounts are being tallied, the total sum of who we are will be measured in the actions we choose, the impulses we chose to act upon that launched those actions, and the necessary reflection we choose to take after each action. We are our reflected mind, our impulses, AND our actions…
… so build honest, reality-based relationships with those elements of yourself.
