This time, when I was in Chongqing, a man who is in his 50s came to me for counselling. He didn't look too well, didn't have much strength, seemed as if he had just recovered from an illness. I asked him, "What would you like to ask?"
He replied, "Teacher, I've come mainly to ask about my health, I was very sick then but I've just been discharged from hospital. But because I still felt very weak and tired so I went back to the hospital for a check up again. However, the doctor said that there wasn't any problem with me. He adviced me to rest more and take some vitamins, then I'll be able to recover. But, after having rested for some time, my condition didn't seem to improve. I still feel very weak and tired. Therefore, I would like to ask teacher to please help me to see what's wrong."
After a while, Tai Sin laughed and said, "There isn't any problem with this gentleman's health, but the only problem is that he has very high sexual desire. He has several wives compared to others. Well, we may say that he has probably used up his life entitlement becuse at times, he'll do it a few times in a days with his few wives. Of course, the body will not be able to withstand it over time, that's why he's in such a state now. He asked for it, tell him to exercise some self-restrain and take more rest when he goes home, then he'll gradually recover. He doesn't need to consult a doctor."
The gentleman bowed down his head in embarrassment, then he said, "I know, I'll restrain myself in future."
Tai Sin laughed and said, "Regardless of whatever that we do, we shouldn't over do it. Be it work or pleasure, we must know how to restrain. If we work too hard, it'll ruin our health, the head and the body also needs time to rest. Too much pleasure likewise is unhealthy for the body. So it's best to judge it for yourself."
