A Lifetime Doing Nothing (Story 21 excerpt) Friday, May 20, 2022 Story 21 from 'A Lifetime Doing Nothing' by Ian McCrorie . Marcus Aurelius, the great Stoic philosopher, makes it clear how important it is to be present: “The longest and shortest lives amount to the same, for the present moment is equal to everyone.” Just one mindful moment is all you need to stand firm against the habitual temptations to engage, to follow, to blindly react to greed, hatred, and delusion. narrated by Ian McCrorie 2022 4 minutes 19 seconds Listen to Streaming Audio Your browser does not support the audio element.
