I cut my belly with a box cutter. It was one of those folding ones that bend in half but the little tab to pull it open is super worn so I stupidly braced it against myself. When it popped open I got a nasty but not too gross slice across my side. Today is not starting well!
Gain and loss, status and disgrace,
censure and praise, pleasure and pain:
these conditions among human beings are inconstant,
impermanent, subject to change.
Knowing this, the wise person, mindful,
ponders these changing conditions.
Desirable things don’t charm the mind,
undesirable ones bring no resistance.
His welcoming and rebelling are scattered,
gone to their end,
do not exist.
