Protect your senses!

Color can make us blind!
Music can make us deaf!
Flavors can destroy our taste!
Possessions can close our options!
Racing can drive us mad
and its rewards obstruct our peace!

Thus, the wise
fill the inner gut
rather than the eyes,
always sacrificing the superficial
for the essential.

Lao Tzo

Lao Tzu is mainly calling our attention to the relative importance of the inner compared with the outer, the essential compared with the superficial. Don't you think that our violent TV and films, our high decibel junk music, and our junk food culture can make us blind, deaf and will destroy our tastes. So, let's use our senses wisely!
