    “Inwardly observe the discipline of always keeping in mind a heartache during intervals of the discussion that are light and full of laughter. When you chat of sorrowful things keep in mind something beautiful, funny and hopeful. ”
    I find that there’s such a profound truth to this.
    It also reminds be of an argument in Umberto Eco’s, In The Name Of The Rose, where one of the monks is assured of the fact that Christ would surely never have laughed.
    It is assumed that extreme laughter, and also, extreme sorrow are trips into the insanity of mental extremes, and that it’s better, and closer to the truth of the world, to remain in a mental state that exists closer to the middle way. The above Zenarchy quote being an exercise to help with that.
    And now to put it into practice…

    There is a place for extremes, but ultimately one strives for balance.
