How to Live
If you want to know a man’s thoughts, pay attention to what’s happening in his life. A man, who dwells on fearful thoughts, lives his fears. If he fears death, then death is what he gets. Focus your thoughts on living and death has no place to enter. Your life will be full and weaponless.
He who knows how to live can walk abroad
Without fear of rhinoceros or tiger.
He will not be wounded in battle.
For in him rhinoceroses can find no place to thrust their horn,
Tigers no place to use their claws,
And weapons no place to pierce.
Why is this so?
Because he has no place for death to enter.
