In avoiding all pain and seeking comfort at all costs, we may be left without intimacy or compassion; in rejecting change and risk we often cheat ourselves of the quest; in denying our suffering we may never know our strength or our greatness.”
Ive worked really hard to get to where I'm at right now in life... Evolution should never stop, but this western world gets so damn hell bent on progress most of the time that we forget to Enjoy where we are at.
Tao Te Ching: Verse 9
To keep on filling
is not as good as stopping.
Overfilled, the cupped hands drip.
Better stop short than fill to the brim.
Over sharpen the blade,
and the edge will soon blunt.
Amass a store of gold and jade,
and no one can protect it.
Claim wealth, titles, honor and pride,
and disaster will follow.
Retire when the work is done.
This is the way of heaven.
