When you embody the understanding of the principle of opposites, your emotions no longer have control over you. You can respond with equanimity to every situation. Even if you think ups and downs make you feel alive, the sweetness of tranquility will quickly prove superior to being jerked around by your thought-feelings. Marcus Aurelius said it perfectly “If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself but to your own estimate of it: and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.”
It’s all just a dance.
Steve and Jarl
