Life rises out of death, death rises out of life; in being opposite they yearn to each other, they give birth to each other and are forever reborn. And with them, all is reborn, the flower of the apple tree, the light of the stars. In life is death. In death is rebirth. What then is life without death? Life unchanging, everlasting, eternal?-What is it but death-death without rebirth?
The tears of the world are a constant quantity. For each one who begins to weep somewhere else another stops. The same is true of the laugh.
For Equilibrium, a Blessing: Like the joy of the sea coming home to shore, May the relief of laughter rinse through your soul. As the wind loves to call things to dance, May your gravity by lightened by grace. Like the dignity of moonlight restoring the earth, May your thoughts incline with reverence and respect. As water takes whatever shape it is in, So free may you be about who you become. As silence smiles on the other side of what's said, May your sense of irony bring perspective. As time remains free of all that it frames, May your mind stay clear of all it names. May your prayer of listening deepen enough to hear in the depths the laughter of god.
Death and life are the same thing-like the two sides of my hand, the palm and the back. And still the palm and the back are not the same...They can be neither separated, nor mixed.
For every bad thing in life, there are more good things to tip the balance.
To light a candle is to cast a shadow...
Dhriti is one of the kala or lila of knowledge, which is firmness strong intellect by which these peace elements are held in union and harmony kept in the state of steadiness and equilibrium.
Fortunately, there is a sane equilibrium in the character of nations, as there is in that of men.
The reality is that financial markets are self-destabilizing; occasionally they tend toward disequilibrium, not equilibrium.
