 Impersonal force (Providence or Divine Reason)

Stoicism

Roman Stoics believed that an impersonal force (Providence or Divine Reason) governed the world and that happiness lay in one’s ability to accept one’s fate. Stoics rejected any emotional attachments that may enslave them.

Lucius Annaeus Seneca wrote a treatise on stoicism called On Tranquility of Mind. In it, he argues that one may achieve peace of mind by avoiding burdensome responsibilities, gloomy companions, and excessive wealth.
