the tao of getting worked
Accept being unimportant.
Do not be concerned with loss or gain
This is called "accepting disgrace willingly."
Misfortune comes from having a body.
Without a body, how could there be misfortune?
- Lao Tsu, Tao Te Ching, Thirteen
Misfortune is not likely a strong enough word to describe what the body above went through after impact with the water. Just imagining the violence, disorientation, and sheer time under water this surfer experienced is enough to make me shiver.
