Worth Considering

From An Artist Empowered:

The Enlightened One explained that the two extremes of vulgar pleasure (debauchery) and denying the needs of the body for spiritual attainment (self-mortification) are not to be practiced by one who is enlightened.

This path of moderation shouldn’t be misconstrued as a synonym for indifference, mediocrity, or a quick fix for manic depression.

Keep in mind that Siddhartha, the one who would become the Buddha, had lived a life of extremes: he was born a prince who renounced a life of privilege to become a Samana, a wandering ascetic.
