More Yin than Yang - what do you think?


"Good and bad are fairy tales. We have evolved to attach an emotional significance to what is nothing more than a survival strategy of the pack animal. [...]. Good isn't really good, evil isn't really wrong, bottoms aren't really pretty. You are a prisoner of your own meat." Sherlock's Sister

More Yin than Yang?
More Yin it seems...

Things will stay the same because we are scared to loose that which we do not have anyway - Danie van Wyk

"you are a prisoner of your own meat, good or bad but curiously conditioned - 
regret is the mind killer" 

Very interesting ! 
Scholars taught this in 500BC 
Giving is the first of the "Six perfections" for living a meaningful life - Giving, Moral Discipline, Patience. Effort. Concentration and Wisdom 

From Giving comes wealth 
From Discipline comes Happiness 
From Patience comes beautiful forms 
From Effort comes the fulfillment of wishes 
From Concentration comes Peace 
From Wisdom comes Liberation 

Giving our time, our knowledge, our money. 
Possessions, our good heart, etc etc - never expecting a thing in return is the first and important step to Liberation of the Mind - consciousness !
