Find a Middle Way

A qoute sent to me by a dear friend:

“Taking life seriously does not mean spending our whole lives meditating as if
we were living in the mountains in the Himalayas or in the old days in Tibet. In
the modern world, we have to work and earn our living, but we should not get
entangled in a nine-to-five existence, where we live without any view of the
deeper meaning of life. Our task is to strike a balance, to find a middle way,
to learn not to overstretch ourselves with extraneous activities and
preoccupations, but to simplify our lives more and more. The key to find a happy
balance in modern lives is simplicity.” – The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying
by Sogyal Rinpoche
