Anger and joy,
happiness and sorrow,
anxiety and hope,
laziness and willfulness,
enthusiasm and insolence -
like music arising from emptiness
or mushrooms sprouting in the dark -
they spring before us, night and day.
We do not know from where they come.
Stop thinking about it!
How can we ever understand it in one day?
-Chuang Tzu, as excerpted from Solala Towler's
