Sickness


One thing common to all is facing sickness. Everyone encounter sickness in their lifetime. Some handle it quietly with dignity. Others yield to delusion that they are bulletproof. However, bullet find them sooner or later. Such behavior demonstrates lack of understanding. Body not good listener. Grows old and frail despite pleas of desperation. Becomes sickly despite our efforts. Sometimes, affairs out of our control. If we can come to terms with sickness, we can maintain peaceful equilibrium. Opposite of yin of good health is yang of illness. These two are connected by same thread that runs throughout Tao.
