Life keeps a balance between polar opposites, so one who is ready to accept the responsibility of being oneself with all its beauties, bitter- nesses, its joys and agonies, can be free. Only he can be free. Live it in all its agony and all its ecstasy – both are yours. And always remember: ecstasy cannot live without, exist without, death and joy cannot exist without sadness. That’s how things are – nothing can be done about it. That’s the very nature, the very Tao of things.
