This is the week when we show up in the world distributing our assets. In my case that means primarily, and at last, teaching my college students. Giving out the wealth of knowledge and experience accumulated over the years, giving freely to all, but especially to those whose hands are open to receive it. I weigh my students by their attitude and those who would receive receive a weightier portion.
Today’s stoical meditation is on point here. It is again, like yesterday’s, taken from the Moral Letters of Seneca – quoted by the Daily Stoic – in which he writes,
Let us also produce some bold act of our own – and join the ranks of the most emulated.Seneca, Moral Letters, 98, 13b, The Daily Stoic, p. 144
The “bold act of our own” in the context of the Six of Pentacles, is where we give of ourselves in whatever field of action we are involved, according to our best judgement.
