RE: Nurturing Life As Preventative Medicine

in #steempresslast year

My Dads philosophy or oft repeated motto was 'ya just gotta keep moving'. Live life, but moderately.. sage advice. I am reminded of my face and stomach hurting from laughing too much. As I read the first half I was thinking of how parallel this was to the middle way. Its no suprise that all these wise healers and teachers from various traditions arrived at same observation. I need his moderation advice stuck to my fridge. Love your response.

Sort:  

What I’ve discovered through translating the I Ching is that this idea of (and the phrase itself) “obtaining the Middle” 得中 dé zhōng predates Buddhism by somewhere around 1000 years or more.

Maybe Siddhartha encountered some Chinese sages in the himalaya when he was off being a hermit....?......
