    Marcus Aurelius & White Eagle

    ‘People seek retreats for themselves, houses in the country, sea-shores and mountains and thou too art wont to desire such things very much. But this is altogether a mark of the most common sort of people, for it is in thy power whenever thou shalt choose to retire into thyself. For nowhere either with more quiet or more freedom from trouble does a man retire than into his own soul.’ Marcus Aurelius

    ‘Remember it is possible to withdraw into the innermost even if you are walking the streets of a big city. You do not need to enter into a quiet place. It is wiser so to live that at any moment, in any place, you can pray and open your heart to the great silence, to the Infinite.’ White Eagle Calendar September 2011
