Seneca and geographics

The story is told that someone complained to Socrates that traveling abroad had never done him any good and received the reply: ‘What else can you expect, seeing that you always take yourself along with you when you go abroad?’

Then the kill shot:

If you really want to escape the things that harass you, what you’re needing is not to be in a different place but to be a different person.

Emphasis added.

Letters From a Stoic, Letter CIV.

Don’t change geography. Change the inner man. The Kingdom of God is within.
