Although some of them are real life stories they are presented with pseudo names. How all of them ‘live their lives’ or how ‘the life lives their lives’ described in the first chapter of the book.

In other chapters, how the extraordinary, self-automated engineering marvel of the human body architecture with the ‘life’ inside withstands and survives the influences, pressures, and winds of changes of different kinds at different times of forces and factors on its voyage in the turbulent waters of the sea of life are explained.

Also, the interconnectedness of the ‘life’ within the body and outside the body is discussed. Interdependence and interconnection with one another of various organisms and with every other human and every other thing in the world are detailed highlighting the importance of holistic approach to life.

Finally, how the inbuilt nature of being spiritual will help to navigate safely, successfully with meaning and purpose the life’s voyage with the adoption of the holistic way of life is brought out in detail in the book.

Nearly two thousand years after it was written, Meditations remains profoundly relevant for anyone seeking to lead a meaningful life.

Few ancient works have been as influential as the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius, philosopher and emperor of Rome (A.D. 161–180). A series of spiritual exercises filled with wisdom, practical guidance, and profound understanding of human behavior, it remains one of the greatest works of spiritual and ethical reflection ever written. Marcus’s insights and advice—on everything from living in the world to coping with adversity and interacting with others—have made the Meditations required reading for statesmen and philosophers alike, while generations of ordinary readers have responded to the straightforward intimacy of his style. For anyone who struggles to reconcile the demands of leadership with a concern for personal integrity and spiritual well-being, the Meditations remains as relevant now as it was two thousand years ago.

In Gregory Hays’s new translation—the first in thirty-five years—Marcus’s thoughts speak with a new immediacy. In fresh and unencumbered English, Hays vividly conveys the spareness and compression of the original Greek text. Never before have Marcus’s insights been so directly and powerfully presented.

With an Introduction that outlines Marcus’s life and career, the essentials of Stoic doctrine, the style and construction of the Meditations, and the work’s ongoing influence, this edition makes it possible to fully rediscover the thoughts of one of the most enlightened and intelligent leaders of any era.
