The only thing you can control is your mind, and you may have noticed it is noticeably out of control.  Reality, Dào, is beyond concepts/unknowable, and death/disaster can come at any moment to anyone regardless of their “good” karma.  Empires collapse, good/innocent people die, and we have no rights other than the ones we give each other.  Nature goes the way it goes and is just way bigger than our human agendas.  In the face of this, the last year asked us all the question – what do you/we do when things fall apart?
 
The only sane answer from the Metal Ox perspective is – you put things back together, you just keep going.  YOU LEARN FROM THE PAST, you rebuild, you get back to work, and you do your best to do it better the next time, knowing full well that it will all fall apart again.  Everything is impermanent and constantly in flux; cyclical time demands that all things grow, decay, and die in endless cycles of renewal, and Autumn/Winter demand that we face our mortality.  Ideally, however, we should not invoke entropy before its time.
