Blessed Seneca and his "On Providence"

THE AUTHOR:

Seneca lived in the first century after Christos and was born into a Roman family who had grown up in Spain.

During the years of his youth, he was schooled by the philosopher Sotion, a Pythagorean heir of Aristotle, who was strongly versed in the study of science through observation and reasoning, and also Attalus the Stoic philosopher who was the one who pushed more than any for Seneca to adhere to religion, and the one that inspired above all his reflection on the omnipotence of God, that all individual destinies must bow before the fate of the divine destiny.

Without the teaching of these two men, Seneca himself would have struggled to find some of the discoveries that made him famous: it was thus that the first principle of Seneca which was based on observation and reasoning, is enunciated as:

Citation:
"Every body immersed in water comes out wet."


In addition, thanks to him, with the use of reason, we have come to discover other principles equally wonderful, like that of his disciple Tarzan who uttered stoicly and fatalisticly with the simple use of his reason, the following fact:

Citation:
"Whoever does not swim is destined to sink "!


Therefore Seneca is rightly believed to be the father of philosophy constative-constativa. (edit: making a statement that can be said to be true or false; merely describing the event).

His talent eventually opened the door to a political career but this was hampered for some time by his exile to Corsica, where he had been sent in disgrace by the emperor Claudius.

However, the science of Seneca was such that he managed to distill a potion of his own invention which was secretly given to the emperor, so that he found himself transformed into a pumpkin!

He returned with the good graces of the new Powers after the demise of Claudius, and became the tutor of Nero, attempting to teach him the virtue of balance.

Alas, soon Seneca made the mistake of confusing reason with the reason of state and ensured, on behalf of the middle masses of the population, the murder of Agrippina, mother of the emperor Nero, without being aware of the slippery slope on which he was now descending.

Indeed, soon it was his turn to fall from grace again, and he was ordered to commit suicide, which he was to do in most stoic fashion - bowing to the will of fate, he organized a dinner with friends, at the end of which he cut open his own veins .

It was during this final period of his life as he sank again into disgrace that he wrote "On Providence".

ON PROVIDENCE

On Providence is a work in which Seneca shows that nothing really bad can happen to the human who is good.
What looks like adversity is really just a means by which the Almighty is testing the virtues of every man.
As such, the man who suffers under the ordeal emerges stronger than before.
It is the wise man who submits himself to the will of God, without limitation, he accepts the fate that is due to him and attempts to distance himself from all the corrupt actions (crime, desire for money , desire for fame) that will transform him into an evil man and thus subject to divine punishment.
For the rest, as he himself says in his conclusion, "If you die for taking a tile on the head, then this is your providential destiny, because the divine in his omnipotence has no doubt dropped the tile in order to get you to follow another path! "
"Everything is for the best in the best of worlds, just as the celestial spheres that move to give the world its hierarchy and order, as Aristotle taught us. What happens to us part of the divine plan."

translated and written by brother Jerem, and into English by Teagan and the Villa San Loyats in September 1461
