In simple terms: “Living in harmony with nature” means reconciling your intentions and actions with the succession of events that will happen because of fate (and fate is uncontrolled – decided by the universe/God) Never forget these things: the nature of the world. My nature. How I relate to the world. How much I do. That you are part of nature and that no one can stop you from always talking and acting in harmony with it. There is one important aspect that I miss. Unlike the modern English term “nature” used for its translation, physics refers to a process (such as “electrolysis” or “metamorphosis”), particularly the growth process. In the context of philosophy (stoic philosophies and others, for which it is an important concept), it refers not only to growth in general, but to healthy growth – perhaps even ideal -. As we have seen, only virtue is good and exquisite, and only its opposite, vice, is evil and according to stoic ethics to avoid. The vast majority of people don`t understand it.

And it is precisely this thing that represents the virtue of the happy man and the gentle current of life, when all actions promote the harmony of the spirit that dwells in the individual, with the will of the one who commands the universe. Chrysippus. It turns out, therefore, that the end lives in harmony with nature, which corresponds to both the nature of itself and the nature of the whole.
