So long as there is birth, there is death.
So long as there is fortune, there is disaster.
So long as there are lucky events, there are unlucky events.
Humans must acknowledge this principle.
People in delusion only anticipate happiness and hate disasters.
A person who is cultivating spirituality will transcend both and not attach himself to either side.
Intelligent people know that everything needs to be looked at from both sides–there is always a positive side and a negative side. The wise ones transcend both sides… in a space of no good and no bad.
