Commentary on Meditations: B4:31

Love the art which you have learnt, and take comfort in it. Go through the remainder of your life in sincere commitment of all your being to the gods, and never making yourself tyrant or slave to any man.

Sometimes, I may go a few days without reading a little Marcus Aurelius.  When that happens and when I return to reading Aurelius, it is like returning to a cool spring of water after a hot day of work.  It is comforting to read the purity of Stoicism.  Now, I simply need to love the art of living philosophically and to be consistent.  For me, the danger I face is becoming a slave to laziness or pleasure.
