Marcus Aurelius on finding peace wherever you are

This is one of my favourite quotations from any Stoic philosopher:

Let it be clear to you that the peace of green fields can always be yours, in this, that, or any other spot; and that nothing is any different here from what it would be either up in the hills, or down by the sea, or wherever else you will. You will find hte same thought in Plato, where he speaks of living within the city walls ‘as though milking his flocks in a mountain sheepfold’.

Marcus Aurelius, ‘Meditations’ 10:23

It can be easy to think that changing jobs, moving house, or becoming fitter/healthier will improve my inner peace. It won’t.
