Reading this story, I realize that having to stay home at this time offers me the golden opportunity to experience the peace and contentment that arise  from the light of the Heart within.
 
I also realize that this inner contentment is always available to me.

I love this story, especially the way Diogenes is described as someone who “believed that happiness could be found in personal freedom, living authentically, and speaking the truth.”
 
This mirrors my own experience—being happy with the freedom to be myself, living authentically, and speaking the truth of my own heart.

Some years ago I met a man who I felt was speaking to me with a sense of superiority. I had heard this story of Alexander and Diogenes, and I responded to the man, as Diogenes did to Alexander: “Get out of my sun.”
 
Today, reading this benevolent version of the story, I understand that everyone in this world is searching for the Truth, and I have to welcome others with a benevolent attitude.
