I highly recommend Epictetus’ “Discourses” and Marcus Aurelius’ “Meditations”.

Penguin Classics editions of both books are very good. Both books deal with the development of ever greater personal strength.

In the end, remember what Carl von Clausewitz said; “The best strategy is ALWAYS TO BE VERY STRONG.”

One does not have to believe in a personal God to believe in a Supreme Being.
You might enjoy comparing Plato to Berkeley. Plato believed in an impersonal Reality which was effectively identical to what Berkeley called God.

Nice post. I pray and I’m an atheist. But I don’t pray to a perfect form or, really, anything. I usually just say, help me be grateful and let me me thankful. For me, it’s just about consciously putting the intention into my mind, whether it be gratefulness, willingness, humbleness, whatever.
