No boundary exists between happiness and sadness. It all blends together. Every happiness holds within it, the sadness of its impermanence. Every sadness holds within it, the joy of its impermanence. Just like every birth holds within it, the death that is sure to happen. And every death holds within it, the birth of transition into mystery. There are no boundaries between thoughts; all thoughts are connected, thoughts inspiring other thoughts, even in other beings. A problem is both a challenge and hindrance. A solution is a success, yet leads to other questions. The Canada goose does not distinguish the border of my nation. Nor do boundaries separate the air I breathe with the air each of us shares.
