“A blazing fire makes flame and brightness out of everything that is thrown into it.”
Amor Fati is the essential concept of Stoicism – to accept, to trust, and to love your fate (which is in fact your life, as Nietzsche said). This embrace fuels your potential, letting go of what is outside of your control, so that you may flourish with the hand you are dealt. Often it is struggle and pain that acts as the clearest mirror to our own strengths and weaknesses, elucidating our true potential. What we do in the face of the fires of fate – that is our true test of virtue.
Marcus Aurelius would say burn it all – and let that propel you forward. Amor Fati!
