Always to remain in the middle

It happened: Lao Tzu’s disciple, Chuang Tzu, lived in a town for many years. Then one day, suddenly, he told his disciples, ”We are leaving.”

They said, ”But what has happened that you are leaving? We don’t see any point. Why should we go to another town? Everything is good, everything settled, comfortable. In fact, now we have been able to make everything comfortable and you are moving again. What has happened?”

Chuang Tzu said, ”Now people have started to know me, my fame is spreading. And when there is fame one should be alert, because soon these same people will defame me. Before they start defaming me I should leave this town.”

A moment comes when fame becomes defame, when success becomes failure. Remember always to remain in the middle
