AMOR FATI STOIC COIN
Amor Fati is one of Stoicism’s most well-known and universally applicable teachings. Literally meaning “Love Your Fate”, Amor Fati is a powerful reminder that we are always at the mercy of life and all of its contents. We can either fight with life or come to accept, embrace and with a bit of practice, even ‘love’ all aspects of it.
Whether you experience heartbreak, untimely death, a pandemic, job lay-offs, a surprise promotion, the birth of a child or deep-rooted happiness where time seems to stand still, you can learn to love it all. This is the dance of life. This is the yin and the yang. We can’t appreciate the good without the bad, and vice-versa.
The challenge that Amor Fati presents us is to love life and all of its contents. It’s not to teach you to be a helpless bystander in your life, but to allow you to own and thrive in whatever circumstances that life throws at you.
Amor Fati and the symbolism on this coin is designed to help you get there, day by day…
THIS SPECIFIC COIN – FRONT + BACK
Front of the coin: A minimalistic design that displays the essential message of ‘Amor Fati’ – Love Your Fate. The fire at the centre of the piece represents your inner flame that never dies, no matter the circumstances
Back of the coin: ‘A blazing fire makes flame and brightness out of everything that is thrown into it.’ It is for you to recognise and constantly remind yourself that you are that blazing fire. You are capable of taking whatever life throws at you and not only loving it, but turning it into brightness for yourself and others.
