道德经Chapter12: What Makes You “Cool” What Makes You “Miserable”

“Dao De Jing/Lao Tsu” Chapter 12: Colors blind the eyes; changing sounds deafen the ears. As the designer of the universe, God’s most delicate and fair design is the shackle for human beings: anything that makes you “cool” also makes you “miserable”.

Dopamine, the neurotransmitter in the human brain, sends impulses through cells. When excited by external stimuli, a large amount of dopamine will burst out. If strong enough, the body will enter a sensory experience such as intoxication and dream likeness.

If a person is repeatedly stimulated and satisfied, in order to always get pleasure, you have to constantly increase the level of stimulation, to be more sustained, intense & deeper stimulated to continue to get pleasure.

The world is dialectical. There is a dark side to human nature, but also a bright side.

Since anything that makes you feel good will make you miserable, everything that hurts you will eventually make you successful.

The more pain things make you feel at the moment, the more value they bring. For instance, morning exercise/reading/fitness/yoga … can make your great progress, but require very strong self#motivationn and self#disciplinee.

In the end, it is up to your choice. Your mind decides.🎨🌈🎼☕
