REMEMBERING BAD TIMES DURING GOOD ONES


Most of us spend our lives chasing good times, quelling and glorying in them. But the Chinese Emperor who told his jeweler to make him a ring that would make him happy when he was sad, and sad when he was happy, was a very wise king. He knew he needed to remember sadness when he was happy to balance himself by remembering that THIS TOO SHALL PASS (the inscription on the ring by the wise jeweler).

Yin waits in the wings in Yang times and vice versa. Why not remember both instead of being short sighted if not blind?
