MEMENTO MORI RING
Memento Mori is one of the key teachings in Stoic Philosophy. Literally meaning “Remember You Must Die”, this message at first appears morbid but is, in fact, one of the most grounding messages that Stoicism has to offer.
In our own busy lives, we can get caught up in meetings that don’t matter, doing things we don’t want to do and can take our own lives and those of those around us for granted.
Memento Mori is a reminder that there is an expiry date to all of this. We aren’t going to be here forever and neither are those that are closest to us. Remembering this makes us less likely to waste this life that is so precious and so finite. The message is sobering and allows us to constantly reassess what is important and what is unimportant.
In light of recent global events and sudden deaths of people who were well known and loved, we have all been reminded just how unpredictable this life is and how it can all be turned upside down in an instant. Now more than ever, the underlying message of ‘Memento Mori’ rings true.
