The Middle Way is preferred by all of the spiritual systems I know about. The lesson of the Greek myth about Daedalus and Icarus is, "Don't let your inflations get you down!" Balancing our highs and lows is the true work of ego in minding the emotional flow and keeping it within the normal and customary range for reactions to the events of our life. Balance and harmony is the true aim of life according to the old Taoist sages, and working to keep Yin and Yang in sync maintains the pace and flow of each day. Regular times during the day for emotional check-ins helps with being conscious of the state of our being, and puts us in charge of regulating our response to the circumstances as they change throughout each day. Reducing noise, complexity and drama, and increasing time spent with emptiness, stillness and silence, help to maintain our relationship with the AUM of life from situation to situation, and positions us to be able to respond appropriately to rising to the occasion, one after another.

As we used to say, been down so long it looks like up to me. And vice versa.
