Have been some time since I posted under Meditations.I am publishing below the 5th paragraph from chapter 3.
How to act :
Never under compulsion,out of selfishness,without forethought,with misgivings.
Don’t dress up your thoughts.
No surplus words or unnecessary actions.
Let the spirit in you represent a man,an adult,a citizen,a roman,a ruler.Taking up his post like a soldier and patiently awaiting his recall from life.Needing no oath or witness.
Cheerfulness.Without requiring other people’s help.Or serenity supplied by others.
To stand up straight – not straightened.
