Uketamo: the power over your mind

“You have power over your mind — not outside events. Realise this, and you will find strength.”

Marcus Aurelius

You have control over how you think about things. You can choose to think of something as bad, and equally you can choose to think of it as good. The choice is up to you. But when it comes to Uketamo, the choice is to accept things for what they are.

Accepting things for what they are makes it easier to separate your thoughts from outside events, and makes it easier to move on. Therein lies the strength.
