Marcus Aurelius, as emperor of Rome, was the most powerful man in the world. But that did not stop him from having to deal with a difficult son, a lazy co-emperor, and many others who tried to antagonize him or overthrow him. His days were filled with difficult social moments. In this contemplation we practice the exact morning meditation Marcus did each day to prepare his mind for whatever came his way.
